I hear ya. I was thinking something similar after the game regarding the youth of this team.
There seems to be a themse to the losses -
@ AZ: defense/special teams and running game showup but passing game doesn't.
@ STL: defense/running game shows up, passing game doesn't, special teams has brain farts.
@ SF: pass D and run O show up, Russell is competent and the run D stinks.
@ DET: Russell is solid, Lynch busts one, pass pro is good, run D is on point but a usually airtight secondary gets gashed by some little dudes.
The Hawks are very capable and ultra talented in every phase of the game but still suffer the maddening inconsistencies of a young team. Eventually, maybe this season even, it will all come together at once - and it will be a beautiful opening of floodgates. 4-4 isn't ideal but the season has been kept alive while they iron out the kinks - the arrow is pointing up.
