2015 MNF Executive Champion!
the Falcons have already intercepted Peyton Manning three times in the first quarter, we couldn't get one the whole game...
The Falcons have been very active and aggressive at the LOS, getting some pressure, getting great drops into the short field, pressing on the outside and running cover 2 safeties to the ball very quickly. Impressive defense. Don't know why Peyton was throwing into the strength of the coverage.
To steal a phrase, " looked like Manning was throwing a pass while the Falcons were posing for a team photo "
Those were gift wrapped interceptions or at least a couple were but never the less, our defense isn't exactly good at getting the turnovers. I can't believe we were a number one defense last season with what, only 14 turnovers that, has to be some kind of record.
If we do turn into a ball control team, a clock controlled team will that lesson our chances for gaining turnovers since the opposing offense will not be on the field as much or will it increase because the opposing offenses feel the need to air it out playing catchup ?
slapstick i get it on what the defense is all about. imho guys like msnning snd brady don't get rattled when they face our defense. the times we have beaten those guys i think it had more to do with the talent on our team rather than the system we run.
