Falcons Head to New York in Playoffs (Updated)

Will They Do It?

Can the Ground Game Get on Track? (AJC)

 

The question is obviously not can they do it, but will they do it, meaning will they finally take that huge step forward and win in the postseason. This is the big albatross that’s been hanging over this Falcons franchise under Head Coach Mike Smith, and by extension Thomas Dimitroff as General Manager. For as much as this franchise has accomplished in such a short amount of time, they have yet to win in the playoffs. The magnitude of this game needs little description.

1) Career Game for Mike Smith?

Smith has done wonders for one of the most inconsistent and underperforming franchises in NFL history in his very short tenure here. He’s already the most winning coach in terms of percentage in franchise history, was the first to help the Falcons to consecutive winning seasons in franchise history, Smith was named NFL Coach of the Year in 2008, not to mention having them make the playoffs in 3 out of his 4 years as the Falcons head coach.

Many, however, will ignore the immense success he’s had during the regular season and all the accomplishments he’s obtained in his short tenure as Falcons head coach and simply point to his 0-2 record in the playoffs. It seems a bit unfair, but ultimately coaches are judged on their success in the postseason. The Falcons played a hard fought game in their first playoff appearance with a rookie quarterback, but the Debacle in the Dome where they were out-coached, outclassed, and smashed to pieces on the Georgia Dome turf as the #1 seed in the NFC has left him hardly any room for error.

If he wins this one he can drop that awful albatross from his neck, at least for the short-term. But if he leads another failed effort in the playoffs and drops to 0-3 after a year of underachievement, than the whispers will only get louder that Smith is nothing more than a great coach during the regular season and nothing more, fair or not.

2) Will this Coaching Staff Learn from their Losses?

Enormous Game for Smith and Co. (AJC)

D. Orlando Ledbetter wrote an article recently talking about how Coach Smith looked at his two playoff losses and how to avoid another letdown in the postseason. He referred to 7 turnovers and the way they prepared. The turnovers alone were bad, but hopefully that’s not a sign for him to be even more conservative than he already is.

The biggest thing that seemed to be evident was the Falcons lack of toughness and tenacity compared to their opponents, particularly against the Packers. Did Smith and Co. put the players through a tougher week to get ready for a very physical playoff game? Or will they use the time off in hopes that they can magically turn on the physical nature needed for a playoff win? We’ll see Sunday.

3) Soft Cheese Zone or (Gasp) Aggressive Defense?

Those who are into gambling and betting know which way the data would sway them to pick if they were placing a bet on this one. It’s one of the biggest sources of ire for Atlanta Falcons fans over the last four years, but particularly in 2011. Mike Smith, Brian Van Gorder, and the defensive staff have predominantly run the soft zone coverage where they rush 3 or 4 defensive linemen (and occasionally drop their DE’s into coverage), have their cornerbacks dropped 10 yards from the receivers, never disturb the opposing receivers routes, and expect the linebackers and safeties to get everything in between. 

It works decently well with average and below average teams that have either rookie or less-than-stellar QB’s. That same zone gets absolutely shredded and torched when playing great quarterbacks and teams (see Brees and Rodgers for history). This has been discussed ad infinitum throughout the past four years and it just doesn’t work against great teams. It allows the quarterback and offense to get into rhythm and pick them apart at will. If they think that Eli Manning can’t do that, they are in for yet another terrible defensive showing. 

It would be one thing if they ran that style out of necessity of not having the right personnel to blitz and be aggressive, but that’s not the case. Curtis Lofton, William Moore, Sean Weatherspoon, Thomas DeCoud, Stephen Nicholas, and Brent Grimes have all shown an excellent ability of getting after the quarterback, not to mention the ability of the front four to get in the backfield. There have been glimpses here and there, but just when fans think they are “turning the corner” into finally being aggressive and dictating their will to the offense, they resort back to the old soft zone. They have proven that when they get after the quarterback (Stafford, Freeman, Newton, Gabbert, Rodgers 1st half), good things happen. Which one will show on Sunday?

4) Can the Falcons Weather a Storm?

Must Get these Two Going Sunday (AJC)

No, we’re not talking about the actually weather up in New York, for the forecast is supposed to be pretty good. This is wondering whether the Falcons can take a punch against a good team if necessary and find a way back in the game without making mistakes. The Falcons had an up and down battle with the Arizona Cardinals in their first matchup in the playoffs in 2008, but after a fumbled snap right after halftime led to an immediate score, the Falcons never seemed to be able to get back in the game.

The more magnified example came in last year’s blowout of the Packers. The Falcons actually scored first and the score was 14-14 and then 21-14. A few mistakes later and the Falcons were on their way to getting destroyed. The Falcons were driving down the field and an accidental slip by Michael Jenkins gave the ball back to the Packers, where they increased their score to 21-14. The worst throw of  Matt Ryan’s career than made it a quick 28-14. Yes, it’s true the Falcons would have had a really hard road back to win the game as it stood, but the Birds didn’t even seem to put up a fight in the 2nd half. They held the Packers to a 3rd and long deep in their own territory with a chance to get back in the game, and of course Aaron Rodgers converted, went down to score, and that was it.

The question is whether the Falcons can weather an early surge by the Giants in their home stadium and have the fortitude to get back in the game if things don’t go their way from the opening bell. They have proven they can do it against lesser teams such as the Panthers, but doing it against quality opponents on the road and in the playoffs are a different set of circumstances.

 

Much more coming very soon……….

Until then, get ready for some Falcons Playoff Football here in The Bird Cage.

Our o-line can’t pass protect.

Our d-line can’t rush the passer.

We’re not going to win the game.

Keys to game:(IMHO)
Matt Bryant. Since we have been stalling outside the “red zone” Bryant will have to deliver in the winds of the meadowlands.
Svitek: He is going to have to have a monster game and keep Ryan on his feet.(let alone the rest of the O-line)
Quick Passes.. and yards after catch due to the short passes.
Turner needs to get his self moving like he did against Tampa. Yes Tampa D was horrible, but it was the fastest Turner has looked in a while.
Ray Edwards. he must, MUST pressure and HIT Manning.
Hit Manning. We cannot whiff on him, we have to hit him.
Grimes needs to be healthy and cover Cruz. Dunta will just end up disappointing us.

Looking at the stats, we are on paper the better team.
What stinks, is that we are the only dome team that has to go play in the elements in the first round.
However, that could be to our advantage, since winning our first play off game of the Smitty regime outside, in NYC, could just keep the mo train going.

D3,imo,there are some who are already talking about firing the entire CS and making many, many suggestions as to what we need to do after we lose our first playoff game which we haven’t even played yet? I simply do not understand that thinking. I realize that this blog is wide open to all opinions but it seems to me, since it so late in the year, that there is no way to make major changes, especially if they are based on something that hasn’t even happened. It is very true that the Falcons desperately need some changes to improve. Everyone has an opinion as to what we should do and that’s what the blog is all about.
As far as you #1 statement goes, I agree 100%. Does everyone not realize that it has taken the “elite” teams many, many years of building up to what they are now? However decrepit this team and CS apprear to be to some, it is the BEST TEAM that we have been able to present to the NFL nation as a contender since 1966. Can’t we just wait to see what happens next Sunday before we bring out the torches?
The big IF we are all concerned about is IF the Falcons, we know and love, will show up Sunday. That has been the most important question that I have figured out from the blog. We know they are capable of doing it. All we can do at this point in time is wait and see IF they do it.
You #2 question? Can MS pull it out, we’ll see.

JB, I personally hope we have more terrible seasons where we make the playoffs and set franchise records. Sure it has been up and down and extremely frustrating, but we got to where we wanted to be come the end of the season. Near as I can tell, no one has won a playoff game yet. Another thing, I don’t hear many other teams that have made the playoffs back-to-back years discussing firing a large chunk of their staff. The Ravens? No. The Steelers? No. The Patriots? No. The Saints? No. The Packers? No.

I think the wild card is we just might want it more. The Giants pass rush, at home, outside, cold, their running game coming together, Eli, experience….All spells doom. It just comes down to how bad the Falcons want it, will Turner give more effort to get that extra yard, will JJ and Roddy catch everything they get their hands on, can Svitek prove he is a top LT. Will we have that Zoom focus? Do we want it more. We shall see.

A few weeks ago I said the New Orleans game meant nothing. I took some flack, but getting humiliated might have been the best thing that ever happened. It we beat New Orleans and went into New York thinking we were going to roll over the Giants because we had momentum, I assure you, we would get our teeth kicked in. But going in there knowing we have to scratch, claw, fight, bleed, take nothing for granted, and just WANT IT, that gives us our best chance. Rise Up!

Svitek isn’t a top LT…

Dude’s nothing more than an adequate stop-gap who will need help this weekend without a doubt against Pierre-Paul and company.

No way you can leave Svitek blocking one on one against these guys, they’ll have to chip and give the guy some help.

Mr Charlie

January 3rd, 2012

Svitek has been good against speed rushers. I think the bull rushers might be able to push him around, he just does not have the bulk, but he has shown himself quite adequate against the 280 pound speed rushers….But he will get help. But you cannot discount the job he has done.

Mr Charlie,

Again, I can appreciate your glass half-full sentiments, but if the Falcons should’ve learned anything from last season’s 13-3 season that ended in that Debacle in the Dome, it should’ve been that nothing comes easy in the playoffs.

Regarding D3’s point about this being a huge game for Smitty. Without a doubt it’s big, especially big for Smitty and Ryan to get that playoff monkey off their backs. I’m cautiously optimistic about our chances this weekend. But, I wouldn’t be satisfied with winning one game against an average to slightly above average Giants team and then just getting KO’d in the next round. Technically, we will have ended up right where we left off a year ago doing that, a divisional round knockout.

I know you’ve got to be realistic, and it may be unrealistic to think the Falcons can do that with GB waiting in the shadows should we win this weekend. But, I wanna see a DEEP POSTSEASON RUN. I’d be willing to declare this season a success if and only if we can get beyond where we were last season. In other words, I wanna see us in an NFC Championship game at the very least. Understand though, I had Superbowl aspirations coming into this season. So truthfully, settling for ‘just getting by a 9-7 Giants team’ and then eventually losing to one of the superior teams in the conference wouldn’t sit well with me.

Mr Charlie

I actually think we match up better against the Giants than anyone other than maybe the 9ers. New Orleans, Lions, Green Bay all have not defense, and rely on timing and no pressure. Without a running game, the Giants can pressure the QB, and you gotta smack Brees, Rogers, and Stafford in the mouth the stand a chance.

Mr Charlie

January 3rd, 2012
11:50 pm

Been saying one game at a time all season. I am Superbowl or bust, but I also recognize 31 of 32 teams go home disappointed every season. All I want is a reason to watch, I have seen our season end by mid October too many times, I will never complain about watching in January.

Wabe

Well put Mr Charlie.

Regarding how teams matchup with the Giants…

The Saints blew the doors off the Giants. Albeit, it was in NOLA, but still, they can matchup. Also, a lot of folks sleep on the Saints running game. They may not have the big name back, but they’ve got a collection of 3-4 that can get it done. They’re one of the league’s top rushing offenses.

I don’t think the Packers have problems matching up with anybody. Although it was a shootout, Rodgers and company had no trouble getting points vs NYG.

The Niners also beat the Giants this season. That game was relatively tight throughout, and was in SF, but SF does what they’ve thrived on all season. Force their opponents into mistakes while playing themselves a clean game. But, I still think they’re a mystery. I wanna see whether that defense can really carry them through a conference that’s loaded with high-powered offenses. I just think they’re in a similar position to where we were last season with a better defense. I don’t think they have anywhere near the kinda pop they’ll need offensively to make the type of run SF fans might be thinking they can make. Also, these days, it ultimately comes down to the QB. Regardless of when, the QB will at some point be expected to make game-deciding drives/throws, and Alex Smith is at the bottom of my list of NFC playoff QB’s I want in that situation.

But, with all that said, those are the top 3 teams in the conference, and all three beat the Giants through the regular season. Now, we’ve gotta do it.

Now on to the game…

These teams are kind of mirror images on offense. Both want power rushing but the Giants have struggled without Bradshaw. Both have big play threats, except theirs is a UDFA :) . However both teams will try to grind while opening up the PA pass. I think the QBs are comparable with a slight edge to Eli. We are a better rushing team. I think the pass game is a wash. We do have an edge at TE.

Same thing on D, both teams struggle in coverage. Falcons may be better against the run but the Giants get after the passer better.

Should be a great matchup. I do believe we will need to score on them and take advantage of the depleted secondary. As always, if the Falcons can create turnovers on Defense, we will win the game. If not, I think it will be tough sledding.

And in all honesty, I much rather take a battle tested team that has had its flaws exposed and had to endure adversity over the sitting-pretty team we had last year.

For the last bit of optimism (that we may see on this blog), let’s look back. Last year the sitting pretty teams lost their first game: Saints, Falcons, and Patriots. When the Patriots went 18-0 they got beat by the team that had been through the muck. The Colts were also 14-0 before ultimately losing to the Saints, who did in all fairness have an equally strong run.The Steelers were pushed to the brink by Arizona and were ready for the big play.

While I don’t think this team will make a Super Bowl run, the frontrunners have not fared too well in recent memory. I like our chances this week and let’s see how it plays out.

The weird thing is that this playoff has a lot of hot QBs…just look at the NFC: Ryan, Manning, Stafford, Brees, and Rodgers. ALL of them had Franchise Record seasons (or at least I assume with the yardage and TDs). My God, four of those should have thrown for 5k yards (Eli was close and Rodgers sat). Smith has even cut down on turnovers and has a great running attack and D. That’s primetime TV either way.

uga_b

January 4th, 2012
1:33 am

Ok, I doublechecked it:

Brees, Stafford, Rodgers, and Eli Manning OBLITERATED the Franchise passing yards.*
Ryan was 8th in passing and beat Jeff George by about 30 yards.

*Caveat is that Brees actually beat his own record which is 3rd all time, but still obliterated it by over 300 yards and definitely over anyone prior.

D3, this could almost be a post of its own.

They and with they I mean Matt Ryan can come out with an easy win if Matt doesn’t killshot himself in the foot. Giants are hot-wired to struggle against the Falcons. Manning will likely make 1-2 critical mistakes as his supporting cast likely wont be able to get things going early. That likely is the recipe for the Falcons.

I don’t hear many other teams that have made the playoffs back-to-back years discussing firing a large chunk of their staff. The Ravens? No. The Steelers? No. The Patriots? No. The Saints? No. The Packers? No.

1) Are those the only teams that made the playoffs? No.

2) Do you follow all the other teams as closely as you do the Falcons? Even then, how do you know what other teams are discussing firing chunks of the coaching staff? How would you know if OUR team was discussing that? You don’t. None of us do. We’re just throwing stones at each other…you know…bloggers that have absolutely no impact on organizational decisions….

3) Every team you mentioned above has a) won playoff games, and b) won at least one SuperBowl with their CS. Exactly where do we fit in this category?

Matt Ryan has to play well and not turn the ball over. At some point Ray Edwards has to have a break-out game. You just can’t show up every game and collect a pay check. I know he’s trying hard , but for suffering Falcon fans that’s not good enough. When the secondary get’s a chance to make a play on the ball, they have to come up with the interception. Way too many dropped interceptions. Mike Mularky needs to get Jaquizz Rodgers out in space. His runs between the tackles has got him a max of a ten yard gain. Other than the 31 yard catch from Ryan what has he done. Snelling is the lost back here, but I think he’ll be crucial in this game. Julio Jones should be a nightmare for the Giants if he get’s out in space. The offensive line must keep Ryan up-right .

Big Ray

January 4th, 2012
7:29 am

That said…..

1) Not only do I think we can beat the Giants, I think we will beat the Giants. We just have to play our game, be smart, avoid penalties and turnovers.

2) Will Svitek is a guy I have confidence in. We managed to find the right mix with our line, having Svitek at LT and inserting Hawley at RG.

3) You can usually tell how bad a team does or does not want to keep their coach around by how they perform, and how supportive they are when interviewed by GM/Owner. That said, wanting to win for your coach does not overcome coaching flaws. We will get to see how this plays out, starting this weekend.

I, for one, am AMPED for this game. I want to take everything that the Giants are, and shove it right down their throats. Give Smitty and Ryan that first playoff win.

Big Ray

January 4th, 2012

Samuel,

Actually, I think Snelling can be as much of an X-factor as Rodgers. The Falcons will have to take a hard look at how the Giants scheme for Turner, then use Rodger and Snelling to unbalance that scheme. Snelling hits the hole faster and both he and Rodgers are superior when it comes to catching the ball out of the backfield.

Big Ray

TG is gonna be a huge factor. So might Harry Douglas, if we surprise them with cross routes.

Getaway

January 4th, 2012

Big Ray – Those cross routes, quick slants combined with a strong running game will diminish the Giants main advantage, their front 4. There’s a lot of footage on the Falcons using play action skinny posts, so I anticipate that the Giants are going to prepare for that.

Chop Buster

January 4th, 2012
8:23 am

I have no idea what the CS is planning for this game, but I do know what we’ve done during the regular season won’t be enough. Offensively I’d rather see Snelling and Rogers running the ball and catching passes out of the backfield. If we do run Turner please run him outside the tackle. Defense won’t go an entire game not playing zone, but please do not give the opponent more than a 5 yard cushion. Our DL has to get after Manning the entire game–not just here and there. Secondar cannot let their WRs get behind them (hence the reason for playing zone). Mularkey has to counter sny pass rush by getting the ball out of Ryan’s hands quicker, moving the pocket, draws using Snelling or the quick slant to Julio or HD. Whatever they do, just don’t keep running Turner up the middle. We have too many weapons on this team to not put up a lot of points on the Giants. I also think Gonzalez and Roddy will have a big day. Go Falcons!

Well, I suspect the first play will be turner, most likely up the middle. It would be nice to run play action, but I’ve anticipated that five or six times with MM and it has never materialized. As stated in the previous post, Eli is a big game QB, unless you harry him relentlessly. Hope BVG is up to that. Evidence in the TB game is not good, though. Coughlin usually has a few tricks up his sleeve, and usually does an excellent job preparing his team. The key for us is to keep pressure off Ryan – if their rushers are too focused on Ryan, we may be able to run nicely on them. As stated, if we avoid turnovers & stupid penalties, and the big play from Cruz, we should do well. This has the look of a great NFL playoff season.
GO FALCONS!

Falcons can win and Falcons should win. So why am I worried? Why criticize the CS? Why did the Japanese run every time Godzilla came to town? Cause bad sh!t happened every time he came to town.

Look, I’m all for being optomistic. I’ll be wearing my Ryan jersey, my sideline hat, have my 6 pack ready, the house will be on lockdown with plenty of room for me to jump around and scream hell yeah. But the FACTS are, we haven’t won a big game in a long, long time.

The first time Godzilla came to town, I might have watched and said, what the hell is this? What’s going on? I don’t understand. But after GB, GB, CHI, NO, TB, NO, HOU, etc. I got it. When you see Godzilla, just run like hell. I’m conditioned to watch this CS get outcoached and outclassed on a routine basis against quality opponents.
