Like @EastStreet said... put Strachan at X, Pittman inside, and try to use Campbell's speed at Z. I agree with that plan I think. 

If they would have left Strahan in the lineup it would have helped to open up Pittman and Campbell. But they chose to baby him

I didn't care for the way PC was used. Keep in mind he moved with TY being out. Will need to see the snap counts, but thought he needed more snaps.

Thought he needed more reps as well

I don't think they baby him. I think they are trying to justify the picks spent on Campbell and Pittman and give them all the chances in the world to show they can or cannot play... which is fair I think... but this means in the meantime Strachan will continue to get limited run, because in reality it's one of Campbell and Pittman that you have to take out in order to let Strachan play more. Pascal is better than both and does deserve his playtime.

I need to see the snap counts, but felt like we over-rotated a bit, and didn't seem like PC was a first read option that much. 

Could be wrong. 

Makes you wonder where all the creativity with Parris was. Reich looked like he had no game plan.

Are we trying to win? I gotcha but why stop a thing that works or provides mismatches?

Hopefully we learn.

Both probably, but at the same time there are serious resources spent on those players and I kind of understand them trying to actually see if they can play or not. They need to know... but this won't last long IMO, unless they improve their play.

Before this season started Jim Ayello made a comment on his podcast I kept ticked back in my head. That bad Smith sak made me think of it. He said they trusted AC all by himself They often helped Smith which made him look good. Something to watch.

People love wildin out after week 1. Imagine if Wentz played poorly lmaoo

Sure. Week 1 is huge for just about every fan...

But Wentz played well, and he was the biggest worry of most fans... 

And most everything else was doo doo and same stuff we saw last year.

As bad as the game was we had several opportunities to come back. Just didn't close the deal.

Because Reich decided not to kick a field goal and make it a one procession game. The body language of the defense after that was bad.

Just now, krunk said:

Leonard punched the ball out when the RB fumbled and we recovered. Darius caused that fumble

What does the fumble matter if you aren’t tackling and stopping them in the run game. It doesn’t.

I think we could have played more man to man with Rhodes in the game.

Rock and Carrie looked good. 

It was Moore and the Ss that looked bad. 

Definitely missed Rhodes, but him being gone wasn't really the issue with our DBs.

It seems the start of every season the tackling is just bad. Get these guys some preseason games. Just throwing them out there isn’t working.

Can't throw deep when there is nobody to throw it too.  Switching Parris, Pittman, and Pascal into new positions is gong to take a while....if they can even play there consistently.

 

The offense is built for the middle of the field.

Man, this forum is going to get even more monotonous than it is if that narrative bombards the forum as much as the Frank is bad play caller narrative already does. Lol.

It's really the same narrative lol....

Pascal has already played all three positions.

Parris has already played both Z and slot.

Pittman runs out of slot occasionally already.

We throw a lot more to the sides, than the seam.

they played the worst defense in the nfl and a team that will have a top ten draft pick next year .  put the eagles against seattle its a blowout . the over reactions after week one are funny , the texans are now a playoff team .  people are actually saying the eagles and texans will be good this year after one week .

Did you watch the game? It's local for me, so I had it on my 2nd screen.

 

Spin it however you want, but with the OL that Wentz had last year, Sirianni called a fantastic mix of plays, and hardly even used Ertz. 

 

I agree though, ATL's DBs are bad. DL can be good with Jarret. LBs are decent.

They've played everywhere out of necessity, because nobody has been good enough to nail down any consistent spot.  Pitt, Straw, and Pascal are all nice players, but are only real fits for one spot, X.  And the "potential Z", Parris, is a nice Z in theory only, because he hasn't really even been here yet. 

 

A bunch of nice players don't match up well against playoff caliber teams.  Can't blame Frank for that.

 

Frank's main in-game problem is that he relies upon analytics way too much.  Seems to implicitly trust it rather than to rely upon getting a feel for the game.

 

Throw the stats sheet away, and he'll start to see truths.
