Yup, I'm surprised Suh didn't do something dirty to A.Davis after Davis road killed Avril

Isn't Avril pulling Davis down by his helmet?

I'm talkin about after when you see Suh come in at the end

I know. But i'm sayin Davis didn't road kill him. Avril was pulling his helmet so Davis would fall on him and draw a penalty.

Davis gets up pissed and Avril is begging for a flag.

Their DLine is very dirty and the replacement refs don't have history to fall back on. I've noticed that many players see it as a free for all...more holding, more late hits. The hit to Smith's head after he slid was a flagrant penalty.

Yeah that should draw a fine. Instead, Smith and Brown get fined for wardrobe malfunctions.

Yeah, no kidding!

And for some reason it's perfectly fine for Matt Ryan to take off his pants on the field.

just stunned that he did not get fined for the hit. steve young is right,, the nfl does not really care about player safety
anyone else been breaking down these defensive plays? It is just staggering how good our ILBs are at shedding blocks and destroying RBs. I know this isn't news to anyone, but man, watching it bit by bit is just so amazing and ups the appreciation factor substantially.

Yeah its unreal. Stopping the run with a 4 or 5 man box?? Thats absurd. There were plays where we had only 2 down lineman against GB and the packers ran the ball and still couldn't get by 91 and 94! We're very lucky to have this defense and they'll need to bring that seek and destroy mentality with them this weekend in the dome! GO NINERS!

Yeah, we HAVE to find a way to keep Bowman... he is just too good to wave g'bye to.

Around the 12-11 minute 4th quarter mark, we needed to sub Ray out.. not a huge deal, but he's been losing a bit of the battle with the RG and needs a break, I think. ( just random observation )

Actually our whole front 7 is really good at doing that. The reason we are soooo good against the run. I've noticed so many times I would see the RB having a hole to run through. Guys are all blocked, but as the RB goes into his opening, one of our guys shed his block and gets a hand on the RB, then either stopped him or slow him down enough for one of the backers to finished the tackle. 2-3 yds gain when it looked like a 7-10 yarder initially. Soap, McDonald, and J. Smith are all really good at that. I know Soap wasn't like that when he started out with this team. He had came along way.

Oh, I don't disagree. I was more singling out the ILB's accomplishments when the RB seldom does have holes... watching our ILBs so quickly disengage and shed blocks to make great tackles? That's special... but not to say the entire D isn't special as a whole..

I'm on record as wanting to keep Goldson even at the cost of losing Bowman but I'd hate to see Bowman leave. No doubt about that.

Having said that I remember when Willis went down and Grant filled in we noticed almost zero drop off. I'm positive if you put the next guy up at FS in there you'd see a dropoff in both run support and an increase in blown coverage. Just my opinion but Bowman is a stud for sure!

I like what Goldson's doing, but me, I am playing a different record for sure. Bowman must stay.

HA I know. I just like the guys surrounding Bowman much better than those surrounding Goldson in the secondary. I remember way too many bad safeties and how long it took us to find a good one. Don't want him to leave either. Wish we could keep them all.
