Falcons snap counts for a lopsided win over the Cardinals

Falcons snap counts for a lopsided win over the Cardinals

The Falcons continue to mix and match, especially on offense, and that’s something worth taking a closer look at. Well, that was fun. There wasn’t much to celebrate about the Falcons’ win over the Cardinals aside from just being a fan and enjoying a thumping, and we did that. But did the Falcons do anything different with playing time that sparked that big win, or was it just Atlanta being at least four times as good as Arizona? Let’s take a look at the snap counts and see what they can tell us. Offense Ty Sambrailo: 67 Wes Schweitzer: 67 Matt Ryan: 64 Jake Matthews: 64 Alex...

Ryan Schraeder benched? Ty Sambrailo getting first-team snaps at right tackle

The Falcons are trying to shuffle the deck chairs on the Titanic along their troubled offensive line. The Atlanta Falcons have been getting frankly disastrous results from their offensive line for much of the 2018 season. Opinions are sharply divided on Jake Matthews (who has been good) and Alex Mack (who has been solid, in my opinion, but has suffered from the turnover next to him). They are less divided on Wes Schweitzer (between competent and lousy), Ben Garland and Zane Beadles (lousy), and Ryan Schraeder (disappointing in the extreme, given how good he has been). The Falcons don’t...

Falcons snap counts for the Ravens game, where all went poorly

Falcons snap counts for the Ravens game, where all went poorly

It’s not about how the snaps were divvied up, it’s what happened with them. Offense Matt Ryan: 53 Jake Matthews: 53 Wes Schweitzer: 53 Alex Mack: 53 Zane Beadles: 53 Ryan Schraeder: 53 Mohamed Sanu: 44 Julio Jones: 41 Austin Hooper: 38 Calvin Ridley: 34 Tevin Coleman: 29 Ito Smith: 24 Logan Paulsen: 18 Justin Hardy: 11 Marvin Hall: 10 Ricky Ortiz: 8 Eric Saubert: 6 Russell Gage: 1 Ty Sambrailo: 1 The clues to this inept offensive performance are not necessarily found in the snap counts, though this team still makes some baffling choices. Ricky Ortiz and Logan Paulsen are in the game...

Falcons offense vs Ravens defense: How do they stack up?

Falcons offense vs Ravens defense: How do they stack up?

It’s about damn time to bounce back for these Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons offense has been hit or miss this year. When they’ve been on, they’ve been an unstoppable force capable of scoring on any defense. When they haven’t been on, they’re mistake prone and incredibly frustrating. They’ll seek redemption against a Ravens defense that has been exposed in recent weeks. Here’s how the units match up. Note: Assessments based on PFF scores In the trenches The Falcons offensive line is an enigma. After losing starters Andy Levitre and Brandon Fusco, Wes Schweitzer and Ben Garland...

Falcons - Saints snap counts: The last normal game of the year

With the Falcons no longer contending, snap counts may start to change. The less said about this game, the better. So let’s just lay out the snap counts, which may shift considerably in the weeks ahead as the team’s priorities shift. Offense QB Matt Ryan: 70 Jake Matthews: 70 Wes Schweitzer: 70 Alex Mack: 70 Ben Garland: 70 Ryan Schraeder: 70 Julio Jones: 62 Mohamed Sanu: 57 Calvin Ridley: 52 Austin Hooper: 48 Tevin Coleman: 35 Ito Smith: 26 Logan Paulsen: 20 Eric Saubert: 13 Justin Hardy: 10 Ricky Ortiz: 7 Brian Hill: 6 Ty Sambrailo: 2 The Falcons did a couple of novel things here,...
