That was an excellent performance by the offense!  Brissett is calm in the pocket and makes the right plays.  The oline played great as usual and opened up holes for the running game in crunch time.

 

So happy for Adam Vinatieri!  After he made the 49 yarder after getting the good bounce off the upright, he seemed relaxed and the Vinny we know.

 

The defense played hard but was obviously undermanned (but at least they kept the ball in front of them and forced Atlanta to convert long drives).

 

great win!

Happy for the win but a little nervous about our secondary.  A very good QB like Ryan and I'm sure Brady and Mahomes, will have a field day against our secondary if given the time.  Our pass rush is really not consistant and still being worked on.  Moore is very good.  Desir is good and Wilson is barely avg and Rock is a rookie.  We are forced to play zone most of the time and you can see how a good QB can pick up chunks in a hurry without serious pressure.  I can see why we are being linked to Ramsey.  He would be an immediate upgrade and a real difference maker if added to our secondary.  Whichever one of the contenders gets him will be very difficult to beat come playoff time.  As if they wouldn't be already.  I wonder if todays game will rekindle Ballards interest.  We are contenders that's for sure.

Will? What good  QB hasn't sliced through the cover 2 like swiss cheese the last 2 years?

    • If we traded up to get Herbert, we wouldn't have Buckner and we likely wouldn't have Pittman, Taylor, or Paye.  You failed to mention what we would have had to give up and discuss other holes in our roster.    I don't think Ballard would readily admit he whiffed on Herbert, as we would have had to traded with or surpassed the Chargers and that would have taken a ton to give up, if it was even possible.    In 5 years, I believe the only players left on our team are Kelly, TY and Doyle. Ballard has totally overturned the roster.  I don't think it's fair to say he is bad at evaluating WR, DE or QB. He got a good young WR in Pittman, we should be all right with Paye and Dayo and perhaps Turay and Lewis if they stay healthy. Campbell has been good when healthy. And he hasn't really gone for a young QB who we'd expect to be a franchise qb.    
    • We didn't get fleeced, but at this current moment I don't think we made the best decision long term. 
    • I think if he allows Ballard to do his job he's going to continue to win.  And re: Reich he has grown on me.  Team needs a strong draft and FA period and steady the course.
    • To get Stafford, we would've had to do better than what the Rams gave up: two #1s, a 3rd & a player, likely a starting caliber quarterback, in this case it was Jared Goff, a #1 overall draft pick.
    • TBD is the answer.    But you need to have a QB in this league.  The Colts went after a guy who they knew had basically lost his team in Philly, but they know him personally, believe in him, and that matters.  So what you do is continue to build around him.   Let's get a nice passing game weapon added to the mix.  Fill some holes and coach him hard and if he's the guy they think he is he will do the work and find the success.
