Right on.

This win is on our coach.  Let's face it, we didn't have any receiving threats out there.  We had one threat in Jones.  MLF used multiple looks, ran it just enough and really made hay with the bootlegs.  Our QB bought into it, never forced anything and we came away with a win.

Look.  I'm thrilled for Lazard, I am.  But he's no real threat.  He became one because of what MLF did on offense.  I am a Tonyan fan.  But he's no threat.  But in that scheme, he became one.

Just a really satisfying victory, and one the coach should be super proud of.

Lazard and Tonyan don't have to be real "threats".  They have to be available, in the right spots and catch the ball which they did.  LF has done a wonderful job of scheming and the players have bought in.  To win in NO without Clark and Adams is a testament to the entire team.

I think Lazard is perfect for this offense, great run blocker, and good at playing smart, going vertical, boxing out and highpointing with good hands and body control. He might not have the speed or quickness, but a smart, physical possession receiver could work extremely well I'm their offense, at least with Rodgers.

If he is ready, he is ready.  However, it wouldn't surprise me at all if they kept him out until after the bye.  Let him completely rest up and come back at 100%.  Kenny helps the most against the run.  The Falcons have demonstrated that they cannot, and will not run the ball.  They have also demonstrated that they suck.  So if we can beat the Saints without Kenny, we should be able to handle the Falcons.  

Wrong.  They do actually run the ball; they are just not very good at it, and then they get behind so the run goes away.

Also Wrong.  While they got dominated by the best offense in the NFL in the seahawks, they played a strong game against both chicago and Dallas, it just wasn't a complete game.  Losing to Dallas on a fluke onside kick isn't what sucky teams do.  Sucky teams don't score over 25 points in each of their first 3 games.

 

Falcons is a very losable game because they run deep on the receiver side.  This is the first test the 2nd 3rd and 4th guys in the secondary will be stressed and heavily targeted.

Might be an interesting game to try to figure out if the Seahawks or Packers offense is better going against the same opponent.

This is probably too early, but Falcons owner was already upset the head coach wasn't doing better, so I wonder what the over/under would be on Dan Quinn getting fired if the Packers blow them out.

Wait what? Aren’t the Falcons blowing leads? Not getting behind.

They don’t get behind.

- up 29-10 on the boys at half

- up 26-10 on the bears going into the 4th

- Seattle was the only game so far they were playing from behind.

How the does someone who's not a receiving threat go for 150 yards and a TD? Especially toasting a pro bowl CB in lattimore for a 50yarder. Come on, give the guy some credit for his play. MLF didn't solely scheme him making tremendous plays.

 

Or maybe MLF toasted Lattimore and made the catch for him too?

A few years back I remember the Packers going on a coach killing run where they got two or three opposing coaches fired following big losses. I wonder if it was the 15-1 season?

I can give credit to Lazard, no doubt.  But MLF set all of that up with how everything looks the same.  Play action got the safety to bite for two steps and that was one of our "shot" plays.

I think MLF was nothing short of excellent in his gameplan this past week.

With all the press ATL has been getting regarding the epic Q4 collapses, I cant fathom how anyone would be under the impression that they have been playing from behind.

Wade Phillips was one... looks like he got fired in 2010

Brad Childress was another. Felt extra sweet after he picked Favre up at the airport and added to the drama a few years earlier. The whole stadium was calling for his early exit.
