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

  • Week 5 story lines October 3, 2014
    Here are 88 story lines I’ll be following in Week 5 . Minnesota (2-2) at Green Bay (2-2) Will the Vikings continue to play like they did last week?
