A crazy Sunday indeed! And yet we survived another nail biting win today. The Falcons came from behind after trailing a 10 point deficit and beat the Bucs 28-24. They're 10-2 and they just keep finding ways to win. Amazing we're just a chip shot away from being leader of the NFC and division.
Now looking at the remaining 4 games for the season. The Rams, Ravens, Falcons and Bucs. A very tough stretch down the season. The good news? We play against good teams and not teams that have only won 2 or 3 games all season. Had to throw in a little humor there.
I have some questions and concerns that you guys might be able to answer. Our special teams unit is horrific on both sides of the ball. Where's the coverage/kickoff returns? What's wrong with Roby? He did well last season. This season he hasn't done much. Is that due to coverage or him in general?
3rd down conversions have been kind of up and down. 1-8 today. Not good. 11 penalties for 100 yards. Unacceptable. And #73 Jahri Evans I think had his 8th holding penalty alone this season.
Greer and Porter have been pretty quiet lately. Are they suffering from nagging injuries or just struggling a bit? And what happened to our aggressive pass rush? They're giving the QB way too much time to throw.
They have a lot of mistakes to correct down the stretch and into the post season. We have 2 road games and 2 home games left. And I believe we can finish 13-3 or 12-4. First let's focus on the Rams game next Sunday. They're a much improved team and we can't continue to make mistakes.
We're 9-3, and let's finish strong!
