    It is much easier to run an effective no-huddle offense in friendly confines where the crowd will hush whenever you have the ball vs. trying to run a no-huddle in a loud, raucous dome stadium.


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    The Falcons weren't blitz-crazy, though. There were numerous occassions where the pre-snap look appeared to be a complete sell-out blitz, but then they only ended up rushing 3 men and dropping the rest into zone coverage.

    Mike Smith, the HC of Atlanta, used to face Manning twice a year in Jacksonville...

    Now, he has the personnel to execute all of the cool plans he had to neutralize Manning with Jacksonville but failed...

    You are correct but they did have 7-8 players in the blitz position every play with almost all of them standing up so Manning could not get a read on who was coming and who wasn't. It forced him into the bad reads that resulted in the INTs because guys dropped in coverage. However, on most plays I saw they rushed at least 4 and many time more.
