Must defend the WR screen. 

Check

 

We can survive a big game by Julio or Roddy White.. not both.

Roddy White had 100, Julio had 58..  Check

 

DT's have to ball.  The interior of the Falcon line has been protecting really well of late.  Outside pressure on Matt Ryan doesn't effect him.  Inside does.

All day pressure. Star had 2 sack.  Check

 

Turnovers -- Matt Ryan hasn't thrown a pick in a division game all year.   They coincidently are 5-0.

1 fumble, 2 pick 6's.   LOL... extra Check

 

Offense must be efficient, no more than 1 turnover.

No turnovers.   Check

 

Cam has to be in the 60% or better completion range.

62.5%.  1 touchdown.  Would have been better without KB drops.   Check

 

Run game must show up.  If our last 3 1/2 week run game shows up we are fine offensively because PA will work.

194 yards.   Check

 

Have to be at very least 75% in red zone efficiency.   Cannot waste opportunities to score.

52 %.  .  Unsuccessful.

We should be less succeptible to the screens this time since we play more of a press coverage than earlier. 

 

I much rather have Steven Jackson playing than Freeman.  Any one who thinks SJ is better than Freeman is related to Steven Jackson. 

 

Defending Julio isn't the key.  Pressuring Ryan with 4 is the key.  The Falcon interior has played well the last few weeks.  Ryan cannot have room to step up.

 

I feel comfortable with Luke or TD going out when Freeman goes out to WR position.   I don't feel comfortable in 3 deep coverage if we don't get pressure.

 

Cam is much faster than last time we played.  I see the Falcons having more trouble playing the read.

 

Our run game is better, their run defense is a better.  Worrilow has been playing much better as he is anticipating rather than waiting.  Makes a huge difference on net gains.  However with a read option run game we will see.

 

If we control Babineaux ..Cam will have all game to throw. All though he played well last week Osi is not a huge concern (even with Byron Bell), because you have to play disciplined pass rush with Cam.  Plus NYG Osi >>>>>>>> ATL Osi.

Eh, I don't look at it as a total package.  I pay attention to the individual pieces.  And as an individual, Shula's playcalling has been a little better the past 4 or 5 games.  Still not good, but better than putrid.  Cam had never regressed, despite Shula's playcalling and the OL sucking on a historic level.  He was just asked to do more with less.  No player plays in a vacuum.  The things people tried to nitpick, like "forcing throws" and "poor decisions" when nobody was open, was bad playcalling, bad OL and Cam being the type of guy that'd rather risk a bad decision than be stuck in neutral.

 

I see what you are saying.  However bad O line play effects everything.  The offense best games happen to coincide with Cam not getting murdered.  Total disintegration  of your line effects everything.  The 2 games we didn't allow a sack we scored 41 and 38 points.  Play calling is 1 step in the process.  If people don't block its not going to work.

 

Shula has called some head scratchers.  But X and 0's don't matter if you're O's don't block.   I have been harping on it for 2 years but Amini Silatolu sucks and has sucked for as long as he played.

Up until this year people kept giving him a pass, but he consistently caused Cam to move off his spot.  Our Oline play improved everytime he was off the field.  When Wharton replaced him last year the O line got immediately better.  People can post as many PFF grades as you want, but even though its not a sack or listed as a pressure it effects QB's greatly to have to move off their spot in the drop back. 

 

Back to the original statement, I think if Oline play was better there wouldn't be much issue with Shula around here.  Or a running back sucks issue.  It will go back to the need more weapons issue.

Please tell me why all these threads are overlooking ATL.....If you forgot we 7-8-1....Steamrolling into the playoffs.....I think not we still have an OC who playcalls like a teenage girl trying to pick out a prom dress. Let's slow our rolls a bit and not set up the huddle for a crash on sunday.. and yes...I want us to win but I'm looking at this game like every  division rivalry game...a straight backyard dog fight.

 

Because you are reading the Topics and not the content.   Read deeper and you will see most comments are prefaced with "IF".

 

Also notice there hasn't been nearly as many "Shula is the worst play caller in history post".   Reason is, Oline playing better, offense looks better.  Stewart running better, WR's more open, Cam is not overthrowing so much because the pocket is breaking down like a fold out chair from Walgreens.  Defense playing better because secondary is playing better.
