Last I checked, the coaches call in the plays that are to be executed. Last I checked, coaches are the ones who decide who starts and plays each game. Last I checked, coaches decide to go for it on 4th and 1 for the win, or punt it away like gutless wonders.
Yeah.. I blame the coaches on this loss. The players executed today, with the exception of a few individuals.
Allowing the Falcons to convert that long pass goes squarely on the shoulders of the Defense (DBs for allowing the pass... the Line for not getting pressure in their friggin endzone!). However, considering we should have had more help for the guy they'd been picking on all day long for huge chunks of yardage shows me we didn't adjust yet again to the situation. And that... falls directly on the shoulders of the coaching staff.
