Atlanta Falcons: Offense needs to be the focus when searching for the next head coach
The offense has been the biggest problem with the 2020 Atlanta Falcons.
If the Atlanta Falcons are going to turn things around the change has to start there if the team is looking to get back to the playoffs in the near future.
Some of the best teams in the league in 2020 like the Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Bills, Seattle Seahawks, and Los Angeles Rams have strong offenses that can put up points on anyone, unlike the Atlanta Falcons, who are inconsistent, to say the least.
There have been many games over the last four years, and this year especially, where the offensive play calling has been very questionable and downright awful.
There has been zero consistency with this team since the end of the 2016 campaign, and this needs to change, otherwise, all the offensive talent will continue to be wasted. The top teams in the league can score at will, and the Atlanta Falcons can’t.
The red zone offense, or lack thereof, has been hard to watch this season. It has lost just as many games for the team as the late 4th quarter choke jobs early on. Dirk Koetter is 100 percent gone after the season, which is something that all fans of this organization will be very happy about. Hiring him in 2019 was a mistake, and everyone knew it.
Younghoe Koo has been excellent this season, but we have soon far too much of him, which is a problem.
The defense has played well since firing Dan Quinn, improving on every aspect of the game.
The defense is a huge reason why the team has won any games at all this season, while the offense has continued to let the team down on a consistent basis. This organization needs to focus on hiring an offensive-minded coach, and it looks they are doing just that.
According to ProFootballNetwork’s Tony Pauline, Kansas City Chief’s offensive coordinator Eric Bienemy is in line to become the head coach. He’s an offensive-minded guy, which is exactly what this organization needs to keep up with offenses like the Packers, Seahawks, and Chiefs.
Every team needs a good defense, but in today’s NFL with the progression and evolution of the quarterback position and play calling, the offense is how you win championships.
