Atlanta Falcons Raheem Morris is under the most pressure of any coordinator in the NFL this week.
Any Atlanta Falcons fan that heard the comments from defensive coordinator Raheem Morris this week are still shaking their head. To hear him saying the words he said removed any and all confidence that fans had left in the franchise.
If you have not heard what he said, here you go – read it for yourself thanks to Jason Butt who covers the Falcons for the AJC.
The Atlanta Falcons fourth DC in five seasons isn’t off to a great start.
How does an NFL defensive coordinator NOT take Russell Wilson seriously? No, he doesn’t have a Julio Jones but he has never had elite weapons and yet year after year leads the Seahawks offense to the upper threshold of the NFL.
Wilson is one of the three best quarterbacks in the NFL and for Morris to say he didn’t take him seriously has to be a serious concern moving forward. When you take a look at the teams on the Falcons schedule moving forward, the Seahawks offense is on par with what the Atlanta Falcons are going to face.
More importantly, when you are coming off of back to back losing seasons and you have not won a playoff game in several years, how does any member of this franchise not take everyone and everything seriously?
If the loss on Sunday was not enough to concern the fan base and put them on edge, the Raheem Morris media meeting Wednesday pushed many over the edge.
We are all sick and tired of hearing about how “angry” the Atlanta Falcons are after every loss, but most of us would rather hear that nonsense over and over than hearing about how a coordinator didn’t take one of the leagues elite’s playmakers seriously.
If this doesn’t get better soon, Dan Quinn will be the first head coach that Arthur Blank has ever fired in season regardless of how much his players value him.
