Atlanta Falcons ineptitude continues in terrible Patriots loss
The Atlanta Falcons were embarrassed yet again against the Patriots this time, however, the Falcons managed a terrible effort in prime-time. It was an impressive performance from the Atlanta defense that managed to give Matt Ryan and the offense chance after chance in this game.
It was maddening to watch the defense play their best game of the season as Matt Ryan and the offense couldn’t muster any threat to the Patriots’ defense.
Ryan took a beating behind a terrible offensive line and the run game was nowhere to be found yet again. Ryan continued his streak of turning the ball over and took a terrible sack when the Falcons did have a scoring threat mounted.
The Atlanta Falcons offense couldn’t get out of their own way and the offense continued the trend they started against Dallas
Offensively there was little positive to take away from this game, Ryan was under constant pressure and took a beating that no veteran quarterback should have to endure. However, he isn’t blameless with the aforementioned sack and turnovers. Kyle Pitts gave up on a route when Atlanta had a bit of life and it resulted in one of Ryan’s turnovers.
Atlanta’s receivers continued to struggle and there was little production from the running backs. This is an offense that looks completely lost under head coach Arthur Smith who was supposed to be an offensive coach.
This is the second week Atlanta’s offense has been shut down leaving a lot of questions for the coaching staff and the players. This is a team that is completely lost on offense and undermanned.
The front office and coaching staff deserve a lot of the blame after the last two games. The front office has refused to add obvious needs that remain on the market and the coaching staff hasn’t had the team prepared. Atlanta is in for a long season one that may end with Arthur Smith’s future in question.
