What I like about us being 8-0. Is its clear that we have not even begun to show our hand in terms of how deep the playbook or our ability on offense is. It's starting to open up real nice for us now in the passing game.
We made mistakes out there and still did damage. Ryan never really got a chance to dial up a shot to the end zone. But that was no big problem. There will come a time when we dare to take such shots in a close game. But there was no need to because the staff and players managed the game well and executed in those final minutes.
It seemed like we wanted to play this game at a tempo that wouldn't result in a shoot out. I'm not saying that we didn't want more points on the board. But this week we didn't aim to go out there and bomb them into submission and run the risk if it back firing. I think that happened to us against Oakland. This week it was more time consumption. But also throwing in big gains to back them up.
I really like what I am seeing. I think in my time of watching Falcons teams this is the best team and the one I trust the most. 2010 was living on the knife edge. This year it's a lot more calm and controlled. A sense of the team being in charge in every game.
Now lets see us move to 9-0 in America's anus our offense wil get the Saints best. But it still won't be enough. I hope at they'd point of the game there is a very harassed and frustrated Drew Brees in the locker room. I expect Nolan is going to be setting up to that O line and QB all night long.
Also, looks like Debt has found his feet.
8 and 0 is cool. And we're still improving.

Actually, it looks like the "Oh face".

I love how our D is stingy with points.
What I love most is at the end we didn't settle for 3 runs up the middle and a punt like we would in the past... we actually kept the offense fresh and kept the ball in our own hands to win. Aggressiveness is something I love seeing out of us when the game is on the line!

First week we lose (as the press claims) our best defensive player. Win next 7 games
This week we lose (as the press claims) our best defensive player. Win the game.
I love how this team is not built to be a one person type team. We lose one player we keep going. Under Reeves and under Mora that was the case. We're like the T-1000 lose a piece and we just morph back into place.
