Re: Skins vs Falcons can the skins win?

[quote=GTripp0012;253008] If they get you out of your game and you try to chase Vick all over the field, he's gonna beat you. That defense is oppertunistic and if you are playing from behind, they don't let you back in often.quote]


But that's it, they have been able to get other teams out of their game....that's good football strategy, isn't it? Dictate with your strengths and expose the other teams weakness.

I do think they are a little banged up in the seconday and John Abraham isn't 100% so that should also help.

Absolutely its a good strategy. Whenever you get another team off their game, you have an advantage.

Even still, the opponent shouldn't get off their game. Its up to us to make sure we go out there, play just as well on D as last week, and don't worry if Vick extends a few drives running.

It will catch up to them eventually. A QB cannot win a game by himself.

Basically what I'm saying is teams that spy Vick (more than on a situational basis) are in many cases poorly coached. I think GW is too smart for that, and I can not reasonably see us losing this game.

I haven't been able to watch the Falcons much this year, especially during this slide. Someone who has seen the games, what have been some of the succesful defensive strategies employed by opposing teams, from your observation?

The Falcons run the ball well. They're #1 in the league and its not even close, they have 500 yrds more than the next team. If the skins want to win, they have to make Vick throw the ball.

Re: Skins vs Falcons can the skins win?

gtripp quoting gtripp? even the games when Vick runs, its almost like if he runs too much, its not good for their offense. last week he had over 150 yards rushing, and they still lost. i say dline stay in your lanes and make Vick( the inaccurate one) beat us throwing. if that happens, oh well

They're only the highest in rushing because of Vick. Dunn is good, but he's not the reason they're #1.

Re: Skins vs Falcons can the skins win?

IMO we've got to score 24pts+ to win this game. I don't think just 14-17pts are going to do it.

Very winnable game though.

Re: Skins vs Falcons can the skins win?

Like I said.... I am going to be there and am 1-0 for the Skins. This is a winnable game.

You have all hit it on the head though.... If we stay in our lanes and make Vick through the ball we can win this game. His recievers have shown they are not that good all year, with dropped balls etc. He is going to get his yards on the ground, you just have to limit the big plays (which has been our achilles heel this year) But I hope Gregg Williams has schemed a good game plan. Did anyone hear if they used Randel El to simulate vick in practice?

I'd love to see Vick get into the open field...in #21's jurisdiction.

not so, the O-line blocks well in the run game, & that Norwood kid is awesome. He'll probably start ahead of Dunn next year. There's a reason they were willing to trade TJ.

Re: Skins vs Falcons can the skins win?

Apparently the skins aren't the only ones having troubles in the secondary. Expect the skins to go deep on Sunday.

Re: Skins vs Falcons can the skins win?

definetly a game that can be won. contain vick, contain vick, and finally contain vick some more and i think we might pull it out. hard to say who i would want spying vick...would love it to be sean taylor but thats out.

Re: Skins vs Falcons can the skins win?

I say have three safeties on the feild, keep Fox back like he was last week, and have AA and Taylor closer to keep some speed up close to keep Vick from running for first downs and to gaurd Algea Crumpler. Everyone agrees our cb's can handle their wrs, and maybe we could finally see what Archuletta can do when he doesn't have to drop back in coverage, and the two of them would beat up on Crumpler and Vick all day. Vick would start thinking twice about taking off, he might just step out of bounds short of a first on third down if ST was up in his face.
Obviously this wont happen...but it would be fun to watch.
