2013 Atlanta Falcons Schedule Breakdown (Guest Post)

Schedule Breakdown and Predictions to Bye Week

Guest Post – Anthony Scott Cooper (Coop)

Trick Play Perhaps? (AJC)

First, let me say thanks for this opportunity to guest write for my esteemed colleague formerly of Clayton County. As a fellow alumni of Jonesboro High School (shout out HD83), I can only say things have gone downhill.

Breaking it DOWN!

So, it’s my privilege to break down the 2013 schedule, one of my favorite parts of the season. Evaluating every team that we’ll play is fun, but before that, let’s look at some interesting facts about the schedule.

1. The Falcons play 5 nationally televised games this year. The most I can ever remember and though I couldn’t confirm, I’m willing to bet the most in franchise history. They will play two Monday Night Football (MNF) games against the Jets on Oct 7th and in San Francisco on Dec 23rd. They also scored two Sunday Night Football (SNF) games against the Patriots on Sep 4th and at the Packers on Dec 14th. Finally, they have one Thursday Night Football (TNF) game when they host the Saints on Nov 21st.

Holmes on Deck (AJC)

2. The Falcons will spend 4 straight weeks at home from week 4 to week 7, though week 6 is a Bye.

3. They only play back-to-back road games twice this year: at the Cardinals and at the Panthers in weeks 8 and 9; then at the Bills and at the Packers in weeks 13 and 14. This is a much better travel schedule than last year when the Falcons had zero back-to-back games at home or on the road.

4. They have one short week with the TNF game against the Saints following a Sunday game in Tampa Bay. So that’s a tough match coming off will likely be a tough game in Tampa, but at least we are at home for the short week.

5. Other than the BYE week which follows the first MNF game, the other MNF game (in San Francisco) is followed at home against the Panthers. This is a tough game against the NFC Champions on the west coast, only to turn around and travel home for a short week to prep for a division rival.

6. Travel is not too bad with only the San Francisco and Cardinals games being out west, though Green Bay in mid-December could be a bit cold.

Hold much? (AJC)

7. The Falcons will play a total of 10 games inside with the Dolphins, Panthers, Bucs, Bills, Packers, and 49ers being outdoors.

Possible Roads to the Playoffs

Next, let’s examine how the games are arrayed in terms of trying to map a way to the playoffs. Though recent history has shown that you can make the playoffs with 9 or even 8 wins, most hold to the belief that 10 wins pretty much guarantees you a spot and 11 or 12 should lock up the division. Of the 16 games, the Falcons play 6 in their own division (2 each against the Saints, Panthers, and Bucs). If you win all 6, you can take the division to the bank. At a minimum, you better win 3 and more likely 4 to have decent playoff hopes.

The Falcons have a total of 12 conference games in the NFC. The 6 we just talked about plus 4 from the NFC West (Cards, Rams, Seahawks, and 49ers). Now that may seem tough with the Hawks and 49ers, but remember our entire division has to play them as well. If you can win 3 of 4 here, to go with 4 of 6 from above, you have 7 of the 10 wins you need.

Goodman in Battle (AJC)

The NFC South also matches up with the AFC East this year. So we all get to play the Pats, Bills, Jets, and Dolphins. Win 3 of these 4 (specifically Bills, Jets, and Dolphins) and you now have your 10 wins. However, if the Bills, Jets, and Dolphins are easy for our Birds, then they are as well for the Saints, et. al.

So that brings you to the last two games to make up the 12 from the NFC. These are the only games that will differ on our rival’s schedules. We get the Packers and Skins while the Saints drew the Cowboys and Bears. The Bucs got the Eagles and the Lions and the Panthers drew the Giants and the Vikings. In theory, since these games are based on where you finished the previous year, we drew the 2 hardest games, but teams change every year and match ups always play an important role.

Some Games More Important

The point I leave you with is this: winning 4 of 6 in the division is a must (we didn’t last year going 3-3, but we won every other game). Follow that with 3 of 4 from the AFC East and NFC West and you have 10 wins. Then split the Packers and Skins and you make it to 11 and an easy playoff berth. 11 wins could also win the division but not home field advantage throughout.

PK Manley Looking Good (AJC)

Of special note, we often debate in the Cage about “this game is huge” vs. others who say, “It’s just a game, they all count the same”. Actually, they don’t all count the same. Without going through every procedure (http://www.nfl.com/standings/tiebreakingprocedures), the basic order for tie-breakers is head-to-head, games within the division, games in common, and games within the conference. So in terms of tiebreakers, all the games within the conference are more important than the AFC games. In other words, if I can go 12-4 let me win all NFC games at the cost of the AFC games.

Predictions!

1. Sunday, Sep 8th @ New Orleans 1:00 pm:

The Falcons have seen a mixed bag on opening day during the Smitty, TD, Ryan era. They beat Detroit in 2008 34-21, beat Miami in 2009 19-7, then lost to Pittsburgh in 2010 9-15 (the day we saw the beginning of Turner’s end), lost to Chicago in 2011 12-30. Last year, they rebounded to beat Kansas City 40-24. I think that last year was a better representation of where this team is going. It was the first real shift to a pass-first team. The first game of 2013 is against the hated Saints in their house. The story line will be all about the Saints so get ready for that.

Fellow JHS Alums: Coop & HD (AJC)

All ESPN and the NFL Network will want to talk about is the return of Payton (who Jimbo73 seems to think I look like… sigh) already has the pundits picking the Saints for a glorious comeback. Payton is a hell of a coach, especially when he’s allowed to cheat… and Drew Brees is an elite QB, but I saw the Falcons get better this offseason and the Saints continue to regress. Their defense was bad last year and likely could be worse this year. They added to their secondary, but ask Trufant how hard it is to cover JJ11. Add in the running game of Stephen Jackson and I see the Falcons (on a mission) beating the Saints handily. This will remind folks of the Denver or San Diego games from last year. Falcons 34 Saints 13 (1-0)

2. Sunday, Sep 15th vs. St. Louis 1:00 pm

The Rams were a mediocre team last year and not much will change this year. They did add Jake Long, Jared Cook, and traded up for Tavon Austin in an attempt to help Sam Bradford. We’ll see how that pans out, but I’m not sure Sam will ever live up to his first round pick. Regardless, they did nothing to bolster their running game when Stephen Jackson came to the Falcons. So you can expect to see our D sitting on the passing game (which is what we try to do anyway). While the St, Louis D is better than the Saint’s D, Atlanta showed last year against the toughest defenses that they can and will score (Seahawks and 49ers).

Perfect Piece to Offense? (AJC)

Unlike those two games, I can’t see Bradford leading a comeback even with an improved line and some new targets. Finally, let’s not forget what this game likely means for SJax39. Playing against his old team in his new nest will be tons of motivation and I expect he has an epic game… likely NFC rushing award for the week. Therein lays my only fear. Smitty needs to stay with the pass and let SJax39 get his as an afterthought. Don’t lean so heavy to the run that you give away the game or even let the Rams stick around. In the end, Matty Ice and JJ11 will blow the roof of the dome. Falcons 28 – Rams 6 (2-0)

3. Sunday, Sep 22nd @ Miami 4:05 pm

The Dolphins may be trying for the moniker of 2013 Dream Team. They brought in a ton of veterans like Mike Wallace, Brandon Gibson, Dustin Keller, and even our Tyson Clabo on offense. On defense, they grabbed Philip Wheeler and Dannell Ellerbe. The Falcons also brought in Osi and SJax39, but those two compared to the 7 or 8 medium to big names the Dolphins signed is a pretty big difference. At the end of the day, most teams live or die with their QB, and I still can’t put my faith in Ryan Tannehill.

His rookie season wasn’t horrific, but even if we conceded that it was adequate, most QBs regress in year 2 (a theme we’ll see this year). Matt Ryan’s worst year was his second as was Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, and others. I’m not claiming to understand the phenomenon, but I also don’t get the Madden curse. Just don’t let Matt Ryan anywhere near it. Regardless of whether you believe in the sophomore slump, the Dolphins are a mediocre team much like the Rams and the type of tem the falcons must beat to get to the post season. Falcons 31 – Dolphins 17 (3-0)

4. Sunday, Sep 29th vs. New England 8:20 pm

Coffman w/ Great Camp (AJC)

The Pats come to town for the 2nd big game of the season. Say what you want about their TEs Gronkowski and Hernandez, but after training camp, 4 preseason games, and 3 regular season games, the Pats and Tom Brady will have figured their offense out by now. Mat Ryan, regardless of what some will say plays rather well in big games during the regular season (Baltimore in 2010, Broncos 2012, and Cowboys 2012).

The last time the Falcons beat the Patriots was 1998… Could this be the next time the birds win on their way to their 2nd Super Bowl? Unfortunately not. I’d love to circle this game as the coronation of Matt Ryan surpassing Tom Brady as he begins his decline, but I think coaching will win this game. Frankly, how could you even begin to compare Smitty to Belichick? It’s not even Luke against Yoda… it’s like Jar Jar Binx against Yoda. Anyway, the Birds will fly high in the first half only to lose to Tom Terrific in the end. Patriots 34 – Falcons 27 (3-1)

5. Monday, Oct 7th vs. New York Jets 8:30 pm

As does the rest of the country, I am subjected to the musings of two idiots we know as Mike and Mike on ESPN. I hate it, but there’s not much to choose from if you want to catch up on the world of sports in the morning. However, listening to these two windbags should have convinced you of at least two things. First, the Irish are the most overrated team in college football. Second, the New York Jets are the Atlanta Hawks of football… maybe worse. The Jets stink from the front office to the field. The few decent players that they do have receive little to zero coaching from that moron Rex “Kardashian” Ryan.

Smitty and Marvin (AJC)

The Falcons are a better team from top to bottom and the Jets will be trying to figure out if Geno Smith can be their next QB. From what I saw from him during and after the draft, he may not mentally make it to this game. If Osi can get to him once in the 1st half, look for at least 3 INTs following. Another game the Falcons should win, especially if they want home field advantage. More importantly, don’t subject us to a week of Greeney cheering a win over our beloved Birds. Monday night, after a loss… Atlanta wins big. Falcons 41 – Jets 13 (4-1)

Out of the first 5 games, taints and at miami are the toughest to me.
Miami has the real deal in Lamar Miller, good WR’s, TE and a future top 10 qb.
Of course Id take our O over theres any day but Miami going to surprise some people this yr.

D3, many thanks for the picks and great analyses! Definitely thinking at least 3-2 through first five with a New England a loss. The Saints game is the swing game.

The Saints will be fired up with Payton back and playing at home. This isn’t the same as the post-Katrina game, when the whole world and the NFL seemed to be against the Falcons, but it is going to be tough to stop Brees in Payton’s first game in their dome…and I expect the Saints to score more like 24 to 28 points against the new secondary.

Also, the Falcons OL is a big concern to me in the first game of the season, much like in 2011. It’s a good thing the Saints defense is really bad. I expect a close game and possibly a Falcons loss.

A real pleasure to read, Coop. Regarding Smith being outcoached by Belichick, I think that will be offset somewhat by this becoming more and more Matt’s team. With the contract behind him and an OC brought in for him, Smittyball will start to take a backseat to Mattyball.

The Falcons OL is a problem, in my mind. But we may find solutions as the season goes on and with the otherwise tragic injury bug.

I’ve about got my mind made up on Mike Johnson – he can’t and won’t stay healthy. There will be no Sam Baker-like comebacks (and even THAT comeback needs a 2nd straight full season of satisfactory play to be a COMPLETE comeback). I believe that he had become the incumbent starter at RT due to “seniority” as much as anything else. And now he’s done for the season. Maybe next season, too.

Guys don’t recover within the same season very often, and when they do – well, we’ve all seen it – they’re nowhere near 100%. Probably not even 80%.

Johnson only made headway to real rotation and possible starter status once a veteran was cleared out of his path. Holmes will now be penciled in and TD will either have to begin combing the scrap heaps or calling guys who don’t have jobs to fill in. I do not want to see something silly like Hawley out there at backup RT. And to be honest, I don’t think we have ANYBODY else on the roster with even a modicum of NFL game time experience at the Tackle position. There went any “swing tackle” possibilities.

So much for all that cross-training, huh? This is what happens when you keep doing the whole cross-training and WPP stuff. Better hope you have something worthwhile on your famously tenured 3 year PS.

One solution that could be on the roster – if he’s good enough, get PK Manley in there at RG and put Reynolds at backup Tackle. Would suck for Reynolds and we HAVE been playing him at Guard all this time, but it might work. Heck, I don’t know…this is why I don’t run the team….

Sure hope Weatherspoon recovers ok, and in good time, with no further injuries.

I’d like to see JJ get away from these hamstring issues…but glad his recover seems to be quick.

COOP, great guest post. I too like the setup of the Falcons schedule this and while their facing a tougher schedule as opposed to last year, I wonder are they really. Strength of schedule in the NFL has always been determined by the previous years team results. What’s great about the NFL, and what makes the league so popular is the fact that realistically, last year’s results for every team mean nothing. Also, paper champs usually, or at least at a high rate, are the champions in their respective sport, not in the NFL, where it truly is a any given Sunday league.

Again, love your post and your predictions, will follow with mine here soon.

Coop — Excellent article, thanks for contributing!

I really like the Yoda vs. Jar Jar metaphor, hillarious!

I would be very pleased w/ a 4 -1 start, especially when it’s a non conference game, like you said when it comes to positioning and homefield, we need all the division/conference games we can get.

I would watch out for the Rams though, I (possibly foolishly) am picking them to have a big turnaround this year, I think they’ll be on the playoff bubble actually. They didn’t lose to SF last year and split w/ Seattle, they were 4 – 1 – 1 against their division and I think their defense is going to be really good, when you look at their roster, I think we’ll win, but I believe it will be closer.

I want SO bad to beat the Aints in that opener but it will be a very tough one to get done, I think that we end up 3 – 2 in out first 5, losing to the dreaded Aints & the Pats.

I hope you’re right and not me though!

Go Falcons!!!

Coop, very good writing! Snack, so far Coop has us losing that one game you’re predicting so I guess we will have to win the rest to match your prediction, and it can be done. I agree with Arno, however, about the NE loss. I don’t see them beating us in our house.

Coop… awesome job man! Love the Kardashian Ryan…
I am worried about the Saints game, as just a tough way to start the year. If we can come out and smack them around, we set the tone for the year. So even though it is against our Rival, more than anything we need this game to set the tone. And if we can get that first half lead, with S Jax, we now (hopefully) have a way to eat the clock in the 2nd half and more importantly, keep Brees off the field.
I actually think we take the Pats this year. Their image of invincibility has been worn down a bit.. and yet another great test for our Secondary.

JJ: Braves game… I am in… my son is going to kill me for not taking him though.. but more than likely I will meet you all down there. I can take the marta to GA State and walk over to the lot.

Is anybody as concerned as I am about the right side of our O-Line?

Probably a loaded question and I’m sure many have talked about it, but now that Mike Johnson is down too, and hearing the report that someone posted from Jason LaCanfora about our line getting dominated by the Bengals DLine.

I wouldn’t mind us kicking the tires on Jamal Brown or Eric Winston, just for someone w/ experience to be there in case Holmes gets manhandled at first. I know Reynolds struggled in 2011 at RG and then was replaced, he played pretty well last year until he was hurt.

Go Falcons!!!

Coop- great post!

I was sad to hear that Johnson got injuried but I was estatic due to the fact that Lemar Holmes finnaly gets a chance to start. Holmes will have some growing pains but by the end of the year he will be a stud. A wise man once said everything happends for a reason. I am not worried at all about the right side of the line. It always irraited me that kept saying Johnson was going to start over Holmes anyways and now he is going to get his chance and dominate.

In Holmes and hill I trust

@Joshua Malavenda re: OLine:

I am wanting to see what Tommy D saw in Holmes as well to make him a 3rd round pick, I guess the unknown is always a bit scary though, I just don’t want us to look bad like we did in 2011, that 1st game against the Bears was humiliating especially for me living in the midwest, a lot of Bear fans were talking trash to me after that game. I know we’re much better than we were that year but I still am hoping the we find a way to start and finish strong this season.

I am wanting that Lombardi so bad this year, being so close last year is making me a fiend! Plus, if we can get at least 1 Lombardi all the NFL network, Aints-loving analysts will have to shut up about the Falcons, Matt Ryan, etc and our “inability to win the big game”

Go Falcons!!!

Holmes was getting better and better and has been noted with freakish athleticism. While receiving more and more reps with the first team, he was on his way to being the starter by the start of the season anyway. He is still unproven, but from what was visible was that Holmes can definitely compete. He’ll have his chance now.

I never wish injury on anyone, but I don’t mind it as bad when it’s an Aint

I’ll definitely take 4&1, however it comes — although losing to the Aints would damper it a little bit.

If memory serves, the last time NE played Us in the Dome Schaub started & played pretty well.
They killed us with TE screens…Donald Graham may have had his career game. Faulk & the other TE were problems also.

Don’t sleep on those Rams.
We’ll win simply b/c of our huge advantage at QB, however Long & Quinn will be a handful — plus Jenkins & Finnegan are one of the few CB tandems that can match Roddy & Julio.

We could start 5&0 again!!

While Im firing up the grill, Ill send young D3 over to the ticket window and will buy as many cheap seats as we have people coming. As a GSU grad, are you crazy? Walking from GSU marta to gold lot is a hike unless your an ironman like coop who loves to run 5-10 miles some days. Park in gold and Ill give you $20 braves bucks. Same as cash on anything inside turner field. Plus your ticket has $10 braves bucks as well.

Im cooking beer bratz with carmalized onions and red peppers on the side. Hope we get allot of cagers, just let D3 or myself know so I bring enough food. I’m picking up D3 so Im designated driver. BYOB

12 games and counting!!! All cagers are welcome to join, like I said earlier, my black dodge ram 1500 will be backed up to the street/sidewalk with a smoking grill on it.

But I think the Birds will go 5 & 0 or more. But you can bet the bank that the Saints will be bringing every thing they got and if there is a loss I think it might be the first one if there is one out of the 5 .

But I still say 5 & 0 anyway its good to check in when I can . Sorry but other things on my mind . I just hope I can break away for the game Thursday night . Thanks cage God bless you all

Cage – Thanks for the kind words from everyone. I have to say that I have an even greater appreciation for what D3 does. He truly makes it look easy. Don’t take that to shy away from your own guest post, but I was shaking when I saw the article with my name at the top of it.

One point of clarification because I don’t think it was as clear as it was in my mind… The top section is a breakdown of the season in general and my thoughts on how a team mathematically gets to the playoff. I used the Falcons and this current schdule as an EXAMPLE, but I realized after reading that my examples don’t match my predictions 100% So in the example, I say that if you split the Packers and Skins you get to 11 wins. I was trying to emphasize how I think certain games are more crucial. I wasn’t saying the Birds will win 11 games.

So the Breakdown, Path to the Playoofs, and Predictions are related but independent of each other.

As for those who think we’ll lose to the Saints, I can’t disagree that it will be a tough game, but I just can’t seperate my heart from logic when it comes to the Taints and I had to predict a blowout… Sometimes you just get a feeling. Hopefully I’m right.

Coop, Deion used to amaze me because he “played’ the receiver, just before he broke up, or intercepted the pass. He always acted like he was incapable of doing the job and then producing. His job now is an announcer and his tactics aren’t floating because everyone sees right through him. He is as full of sh!t as a Christmas turkey, and knows he is, but he is now, as always, makes a good living at it.

Coop, darn good write up my friend. My score with the Saints was 31-20 but I like yours better. As for the Pats, I think I’m gonna turn that score around. The Pats are not the Pats of old,BB or not. If our O-line holds up we should win that game. I would feel better about it if it were later in the season with our young corners but I think being in the Dome we will win.

Outstanding work, Coop. The Airborne Corps (and those of us that transport you..lol) are VERY proud!! Hoooooooah!!

Totally concur with you on the Deion point. The most overrated player I have ever seen (and that is coming from a die Hard “Nole fan.).

Birdman, thoughts and prayers remain strong for you and yours!!

JJ, did not forget you, buddy. Today was a day from hell; spent with a bunch of brass trying to reason with those that have no damned clue. Sunday is a go!!

Just sitting here thinking of who the next candidate for the Ring of Honor should be….

I nominate- RB Gerald Riggs.

Pro Bowler, stellar rusher, excellent receiver, fine ambassador for the team.

Just as solid of a career as my man William Andrews….and one hell of a rusher. A first round pick that served us well until the silly trade that sent him to Washington by one Rankin Smith.

Coop, you had better go easy on Rex Ryan. If the Sugar Bear can’t improve that DL, Sexy Rexy may be the newest PLATINUM card carrying member at Magic City.
