I think this game is about hometown pressure. Ryan needs to feel uncomfortable in this game. I see us dialing up the most pressure of the season so far. 

 

If the team can reduce drive killing penalties and not lose the TO battle, we could move to 2-1.

This game, on defense at least, is gonna ride on us being able to get pressure on Ryan. I don't really like our matchup with the Falcons WR's especially without Desir potentially. Hooker's gonna have to have himself a game.

We should be able to get pressure though. Ryan likes to hold onto the ball and the Falcons OL has been underwhelming.

Also, the Falcons defense looked legit on SNF as well. Could be a tough day for Brissett if he's holding onto the ball as long as he was against the Titans.

I don’t know about their defense. Cousin only threw for 8/10 passes. They really didn’t test them.

There oline is banged up so it will come down to pressure on Ryan. Turay said on his IG that he should be able to play Sunday.

Colts are currently favored by 3.   

Hope that 3 doesn't have to come from Adam.   :funny:

 

Thats a lot of respect for the Colts...especially after they put JAC as 6.5 point favorites against the team IND just beat.

 

That JAC line looks like easy money.

Seriously??? Yes, that is easy money.

 

I checked, it is 1.5 point favorites now, Vegas is too smart to give you easy money. :) 

 

Chiefs are 5.5 point favorites at home? Is that correct?

I don't think their defense is elite or anything but it's solid. They were getting good pressure on Wentz. Dalvin ran all over them but then they held the Eagles to <50 yards combined rushing. Plus, they were just making consistently crushing tackles on SNF, quite a sight to see actually. They were intimidating.

Their DB's aren't as good as the Titans though, so hopefully our WR's are able to get open and Brissett is a little quicker to get the ball out.

That is crazy. The fact they held the Texans to 13 I think they can beat the titans at home.  We need to win Sunday because there is a big chance the Texans and titans both lose.

The eagles also lost a few players in that game including Jeffries and another WR.

We all thought the same thing in KC last year for the playoff game and we couldn’t run anywhere. 

To be fair Reich panicked after we got down by one score. Wonder what would of happened if we had kept pounding it. I was impressed that he stuck to the run game in LA being down 15 pts.

I was glad to see Ridley’s name finally mentioned. He’s a serious scoring threat. I get the feeling that Rock & Kenny gonna have to try & deal with him.  That’s gonna be the key matchup. And I think Hooker is gonna have to be the STAR of the game because the Falcons will take deep shots. He may have a chance at a couple.

In my opinion we ran out of gas in that Game ,to get to that point after a 1-5 start .

I actually see it as the weather conditions made it easy for the Chiefs to duplicate that Jags blueprint & our offense could never get on track.  Each game in a season is who you are.  Us at our worst reared it’s ugly head in the playoffs.  I think that’s why Frank wants to be so run oriented.  

 

He wants us to have the mentality that we’re running it down your throat regardless of quarter, field position, weather conditions, it doesn’t matter.  We had a chance (which was honestly a miracle) to get back into the KC game after Leonard caused the fumble.  Instead of pounding the rock & imposing our will we turned it right back over.  This year will be different.

I can dig that

Ryan is not elusive like Mariota. If we got four sacks on Mariota I would hope that we could get that on Ryan. 

 

Siriani also mentioned today they are just taking what the defense gives them as far as the run pass yards. We will see if we get more pass yards this week.

Like someone else said, the Falcons are very capable of putting up points. Even tho Ryan has been underwhelming he is still a former MVP. Hopefully Darius Leonard plays next week, or else it will be a long day for us on defense. Reich is going to have to gamplan the offense to run the ball and control clock.

 

Brissett should be able to hold his own on offense, we just need him to manage the game and make a few smart decisions.

U over valuing Leonard's value to the  D at this time.   I wouldnt b surprised if one of the rookies plays and they come out looking better.

Hoping Turay can go this week. He was an absolute nightmare for the Chargers to deal with week 1.

Obviously I want a win, but I want to see Brissett be the reason for it. I want to see that he doesn't shrink in big moments. Yes, he's played well in both outings so far, but I would like to see if he can take over a game.

    • Here's something I've been avoiding talking about, because I don't want to be debbie downer......... but Michael Pittman has not been as good as his raw numbers indicate. He's been force fed and schemed open on crossers like crazy. He's catching balls with noone even close to him(on broken assignments or artificial picks) and he's dropping balls with people around him. He's not winning one-on-one. Almost all of his success has been from the slot on schemed crossing routes. Now... the positive is that he's showing more than I expected after the catch, but IMO this is not exactly what he was drafted to do and if we are honest there probably should be players with better traits and skills for that role on the roster(Campbell... even TY). I've been kind of disappointed in him this season. He's not showing much of what he was drafted to do. He has real trouble separating one on one, he has trouble out-physicalling his opponents both on his releases and at the catch point(and this is a shocking development for me because I thought this would be a strong side to his game coming into the league). This is coming from someone who loved him as a prospect and thought he would be a very good X receiver. He's shown nothing this season to suggest that X receiver is in his future.    Lets hope he improves and shows us more by the end of the year or even next year. 
    • We saw him last week with the same injury and when not under pressure he was fine. The coaches don’t think he’s ready enough to dress.  He’s not starting.  Like it or not Jacoby is the back up.
    • Was he the dude that shanked that punt in the first game against the Titans?  
    • Makes you wonder about how bad Costanzos injury is.
