DOOM!!! GLOOM!!! UTTER HOPELESSNESS!!! AKA Falcons Game Thread

Post by DolFan 316 on Thu Aug 25, 2016 6:09 pm

At this point I expect some new aspect of the team which was at least perfectly mediocre to suddenly become horrible while a key player or two goes down for the season after we're initially told they'll only be out a couple of weeks.

Yeah, I'm not expecting much tonight. Can you blame me?

If I was a gambler, I'd be laying at least a couple hunnert on this D giving up 300-plus yards rushing tonight.

Falcons kick just short of the end zone, Grant returns and gets walloped after about ten yards. I thought he was the next Devin Hester Laughing

Wow, a completion on 2nd and 4 that gets the first down?!?! Shocked

How sad is it that I'm genuinely shocked by that?

Tanny gets picked on a HORRIBLE throw that was so far over Stills' head it was all he could do just to tip it into the Falcon defenders' hands Evil or Very Mad

That INT was ugly. Too bad, because the O looked decent up to that point.

5 years later and Tannehill STILL has trouble throwing over the line of scrimmage. Batted balls last week and this week...ugh. No

The run D amazingly isn't sucking so far Shocked Falcons' O-line must be the league's worst.

And Wake's pass rush is like he was never hurt, good to see.

I'm not used to seeing completed passes resulting in first downs, is this really how every other team has been running things on offense?

On the other hand, there's a legit chance Tannehill may lead the Fins in rushing this season.

Stupid penalty on Landry. Not that Landry was stupid, but that rule Rolling Eyes

Cameron needs to be cut. Now. Don't even wait until this game's over. The team is literally better off with him NOT playing.

Fins stuff the Falcons on 4th and 1?!?! Okay, who kidnapped the defenders and replaced them with these guys? And can the original kidnapped defenders stay away?

Cameron drops yet another end zone pass, gets up smiling Evil or Very Mad

Foster is very clearly better than Ajayi, even now.

BTW the cap hit for cutting Cameron now is...brace yourself...$7 mil. I kid you not.

This sickens and disgusts me.

Wait...what?!?! Suh has an ankle injury now?!?! Shocked

Fins D apparently determined to give up a TD on penalties Rolling Eyes

Or not. Note to opposing QBs: Rashad Jones is the only member of this secondary worth a damn. Don't throw his way in the red zone. Throw somewhere, anywhere else.

Now this is the Fins' offense I know. Can't run at all, and lots of dinky little passes not even near the first down.

Tony Lippett needs to be one of the first cuts fo sho.

I'm not sure the Falcons have been called for a single penalty scratch

Not impressed with the 2-minute offense. Still can't throw deep to anyone except Stills. That last play was a complete waste of time.

And then Franks shanks the chip shot Rolling Eyes

At least the Falcons finally got called for a penalty.

Quick first half thoughts:

Offense - moved the ball well, offense had stellar pass pro...but scored just 7 points. Tannehill made some good passes and some awful passes - very inconsistent overall. Foster looked excellent, Ajayi looked mediocre. Cameron sucks, Parker looked bad, Stills continues to shine. Overall, not a trainwreck, but nothing to write home about.

Defense - looked very good overall. Lippett is absolutely horrible, as is Alonso. Misi and Jones both looked great. Wake looks like he's ready for the regular season. Suh played like a beast. Maxwell was pretty "meh". Not much of a pass rush, but overall the D looked very solid.

Overall, a far cry from the Dallas debacle. Not sure how Suh is though, those ankle injuries can linger. The run D was vastly improved (quality of opposition, perhaps?) but the run offense is still bad. At least there weren't as many failed completions on 3rd down, and even a lot of first down passes on 2nd down. Pass pro was also quite a lot better it seemed to me.

Stills is worlds better than Parker at this point fo sho. IMO the offense mostly stopped themselves, the Falcons had surprisingly little to do with it. Really don't like seeing multiple tipped passes, Tannehill should be well past that by now.

If Tunsil isn't officially named the starter tomorrow, then Gase is officially insane.
