Mike Smith has seen the future, and it isn't good. The game against New Orleans this week is basically a playoff game. Without a win, we're just playing for fun.
And, Matt Ryan doesn't know how to improvise. Tony Romo does. Matt Ryan is really smart, maybe too smart. Seems to be playing strictly by the playbook. Needs to learn to cheat some. Scrambling, pumpfakes, irregular counts. Something, anything.
Tony Gonzalez would have helped us out a lot more during last year's playoff run, but wasn't ready to be traded. Now, if things breakdown, Ryan looks at Tony. Granted the guy is good receiver. But it's not gonna happen this year. So he might play well next year, but he knows he's not the answer to this team's fate.
The bottom line is that Mike Smith needs to shake-up this lineup fast.
Right now, Jason Snelling is better than Michael Turner.
Right now. Eric Weems is better than Michael Jenkins.
Right now. We need a fullback that can block.
Right now we need a quarterback who can improvise.
Right now. We need a defensive back who can tackle. UFL, CFL, what about Brian Finneran for Chrissakes? He'd do it if it meant he could get playing time! Let's go Dimitroff!
