This thread is for the Huddle veterans who are beyond the knee jerk reactions that losses bring to the newer folks.

1-2 , going to Atlanta after a long week. Sounds to me like an opportunity to right the ship.

The Falcons do appear to be the class of the division here early in the season according to the articles. I haven't had a chance to see any of their games yet.

That said, what are the top 3 things you would like to see that would give us the best chance of pulling out an upset?

The O line has to block. Open holes for the RB's and give Cam more than 2 seconds.

Cam has to step up, pick his head up and be smart. Don't force things.

Out DBs are what they are and that isn't going to change... the D line has to put some pressure on Ryan and, oh yeah, don't let them gash us on the ground either.

1) We have to not suck (improve on execution, tackling, blocking for the sensitive)

2) Chud has to quit shitting himself when we have to play catch-up

3) McDermott has to stop running the same play 30 times in a row

1) run at least 50% of our plays from under-center pro-sets. Quick routes with three step drops, power run game with lead blocks and ISO. QUIT running the option look as our base offense.

2) Play man and blitz. We HAVE to get pressure. Dropping seven or eight into zone coverage with two deep, including nakamura 40 yards off the line of scrimmage, is fuging ludicrous and it's killing us. We are running zone on goal line looks for christ's sake.

3)Make some "at the line" adjustments. Both on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. We are not playing act and react on either side. We are just lining up and hoping for the best, regardless of what we are seeing on the opposite side of the line of scrimmage. fuging audible a hot route, Jesus.

That hasn't happened in the 19 games Rivera has been here. Be realistic please.

That wasn't a post, it was garbage.

Plenty of threads in this joint for that.

1) A healthy Jonathan Stewart

2) blocking the Pass Rush up the middle

3) less read option and more Cam running bootlegs

Look up I-Formation on Wikipedia.

Try man coverage once in a while.

Remove roller skates.

I don't see any way possible we don't do this. The Giants picked apart our zone with ease. If we come out in the same zone coverage in a dome... ugh.

I was tending bar and watching the game. I wanted to start hitting my patrons every time I saw that no name scrub WR sit down in an open hole in the zone just to catch a wide open 25 yard pass.
