 Falcons failing on pass defense
posted 8 years ago

“That is a concern is terms of passing yards,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “That’s something that we as a staff have to address and we’ll be addressing it.” More disturbing to Smith are the big plays that the secondary has given up. Green Bay had touchdown passes of 44 and 25 yards. They also had pass plays of 37 and 36 yards. Against Carolina, the Panthers’ Steve Smith had a 56-yard touchdown catch, and Muhsin Muhammad had a 44-yard touchdown catch. Anything over 20 yards is what Smith and his staff consider “explosive” plays. “Teams are going to move the football, but you can’t allow them to have passes in big chunks,” Smith said. Safeties Erik Coleman and Lawyer Milloy play key roles in the Falcons’ varied zone defenses. Coleman said there hasn’t been just one thing going wrong. “That’s just something that we have to work on, is finishing plays,” Coleman said. “I think that we are getting better as a group. We are trying to shut down those explosive plays and keep things in front of us. It’s just something that we’re going to have keep working on.” Against Green Bay, Rodgers made a near-perfect throw on the 44-yard touchdown pass to Donald Driver, who was in tight coverage by Coleman and cornerback Brent Grimes.
