COACHING TAPE – WEEK 14 (12/9/08)

FALCONS OFFENSE VS. SAINTS DEFENSE

Falcons ran 63 offensive plays, and had 414 total yards
Falcons 7-12 on third down conversions
Falcons 4 trips inside the red zone, 3 TD
The only negative for the Falcons offense was Turner and Norwood combined for 23-79, 3.5 yards per carry
The designed cutback is a staple of the Falcons running game, and they had success with it again on the second play of the game: Turner 26 yards out of 2 back / 3 WR personnel
A lot of flow and misdirection to the Falcons offense, both in the run game and the pass game, especially off Ryan designed movement

  • The latest projections August 30, 2015
    Every year on this very day I am faced with the dilemma of having rankings that, despite being less than 2 days old, feel a little stale because of all the action in the critical third preseason game.
