First half musings

Recommended Posts

-Early drive falcons give panthers good field position and they capitalize

-falcons left a touchdown off the board in the red zone series where there were multiple penalties back and forth, Turner tripped up on own offensive lineman, roddy dropped a TD grab, nakamura comes up with a good pick on a forced throw to end the series.

-deangelo williams running fairly well. seems like runs are going either 10+ yards or for no gain.

-cam playing fairly well no mistakes

-turnover battle which was a point of emphasis in this game for both sides have resulted in point swings. like mentioned nakamura pick was a score off the board for the falcons, and the steve smith fumble led to a FG.

-Turner running strong early, disappeared towards the later part of the 2nd half

-falcons defense playing fairly well last 2 drives b4 the half.

-matt ryan and roddy white finding space, nakamura and norman? being picked on

close game so far which in a divisional game is expected. adjustments you should see in the 2nd half, I expect more Turner for the falcons offense, I expect more Cam from the panthers offense. If the panthers cant get a quick score we might see them starting to get away from the run entirely. If that happens it plays towards the falcons favor IMO, as our pass coverage sets thrive on forcing turnovers when we know passes are coming. Defensively, if carolina get get some 3 and outs and/or turnovers then expect to see the falcons get at least 30 points in this game. Its a race to the 30 point mark imo

additional points

-carolina's pass rush is getting there, they need to keep it up. however, it doesn't seem to be phasing Ryan TOO much. Ryan playing well under durress. Watch Tyson Clabo the RT, he is getting abused.

-Time of possession heavily in atlanta's favor, if that continues how many possessions will carolina get in this 2nd half? maybe 4 drives at this pace and that might not be enough
