The 2018 Atlanta Falcons nuclear officer is not welcome, who has overtaken himself Falcons in typical fashion In a great place Thanksgiving night against New Orleans Saints.
In spite of Keanu Neal and Deion Jones in the defense, Devonta Freeman, Andy Levitre and Brandon Fusco, among the attackers, Falcon has one of the greatest NFL talents. Injuries were harsh, but so were 10-1 Los Angeles Rams, 9-2 Kansas City Chiefs and many other contenders.
There is no survey nor why Falcons lost three consecutive games in the next quarter, almost 4-7. They rarely expected to overcome the burning of the Saints New Orleans during a short break, but they did not win a fight in a victory of 31-17, including a touch of junk time, to be more competitive than a sudden affair. .

Matt Ryan is an anti-quarterback MVP quarterback, a broad-based recipient of Hall of Fame's future, Julio Jones, a broad-based creative rebuttal of Calvin Ridley, one of Mohamed Sanu's Top 2 Receivers, Austin Hooper, in, a brilliant young Tevin Coleman and a strong veteran of Jake Matthews and Alex Macken. However, it is one of the nine crimes in 20 points less than in the five periods of the season.
Instability is amazing. They scored 12 points on the 1st, the 30th, the next three games, the 17th, the 5th, 34th, 6th, 23rd and 7th, and the 8th. Now it's been 19 points or less in the three losing games, with Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys and Saints.
It should not be surprised. Ultimately, in 2017, Falcons was the coordinator of Steve Sarkisian's offensive system. Last year, a crime against the leader of 2016 scored 17 points less (Kyle Shanahan last season's offensive last season).
That's not a shame and no race, so Falcons has not won three consecutive 2016 campaigns unforgettable but far away.
But again, it's not about employees. Falcons gave it to Saints, who were registering for more than a day. They were average meters per meter of each player, but at the time of the keys it was the bottom team. New Orleans was better in third place, New Orleans got worse and New Orleans improved.

Surface level numbers Falcons generated 17 points on four red zones. The number is very low at the beginning (it should be at least 20), but it did not take into account that at that point the touch of rubbish was mentioned. Also, Atlantx lost two two-tier plays that began at 30 meters and started at thirty.
Technically, Falcons controlled the ball in the 20-meter line of New Orleans five times while the game was still available. In three cases, another one turned on, and Ryan took a killer sack (one of six nights), forcing the goal of short fields.
This is the talk of team leader mentality, as well as the mayor.
Before SarkIsian, who was coaching Pac-12 when the falcons lost four of their first five playoff games.
In the first seven years of Ryan's career, he completed a 3rd grade level 3 of 2008 82.9 Classification of the fourth quarter in the quarter, in the previous quarter, 94.3. 68% of those from 2013 to 2015 entered the second part of the games. And from 2013 to 2016, he intercepted NFL-high 11 interceptions in the last quarter of the game in the last two minutes (seven single point selection games).
Pre-Sark Falcons won a great reputation before leading Super Bowl LI against New England Patriots.
Falcons cut off their 2016 thinking, because they had a serious offense in Shanahan to keep closed games rarely done. They did not face many misfortunes, and we all saw what happened last.
But now, Shanahan has disappeared, and Sarkisian has not gotten out of many talents. As a result, Falcons are only 14-13 of the Super Bowl loss, and their crime is 13th in football, a 23.4 point average game.
This lasts a long time as an offensive coordinator, the former flashlight of the NFL flashlight, Geoff Schwartz's open eye Thursday night-It is not enough to adapt and change its approach:

Saints also had to watch something in the movie. All the security of the game is under pressure and Falcon has not blocked it once. Pass game setting is not either.
If Jones continues to be his brightest star, he has scored six solo touchdowns in 27 games. Often when the critically acute red-headed offspring of the Saracens is criticized, New Orleans's ominous debut may be expected after more.
Do not forget about the seasonal season last year with the Eagles finishing the division, Sarkisian ran and developed the tunnel's vision. Ryan slipped on the 10-meter line with four of the final series, three of which were well covered.
Philadelphian security Malcolm Jenkins later approached Sarkisian proposing His teammates would know what he was playing in fourth place before breaking the costume.
And football played very well, opposite the opposing team and in a very similar situation, they were once again dubbed by Jones. In the first holiday of 2018, Falcons reached Eagles line 15 three times and got zero points in the units.
So it has not changed a lot, and it might be too late to make small tweaks. It's clear that Sarkisian is not the right man for this job, and the duty of today's and the Black Monday must be in vain.

That's why coach Dan Quinn would not be much safer. Quinn was among the persecutions of the most vicious NFL history tournament, and he considered that he was a defensive specialist. The Falcons team was successful in the field of expertise in Quinn, and the defense made tremendous progress in 2017, but the well-deserved drive was a confusion again this season.
This is not about the list. Nobody expects Ryan to wait for eight months, after signing a $ 150 million contract for five years, and his assistant is not at all. Fast defense and this young man can rebound again, especially when Neal and Jones are healthy.
Falcons has a talented Super Bowl and is likely to happen next season, but the team will have to continue with a lack of constant execution over the next few weeks and months with significant changes.
Otherwise, we can probably re-invent this group before we arrive in the winter of 2019.
