There’s a reason Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Dean Pees doesn’t dress up on Sunday: he doesn’t play.
A defense student since before his coaching career began in 1979, Pees has a pattern for every shot he assigns to his units. The two-time Super Bowl-winning coach now leads the Falcons defense, also reuniting with fellow Titans coach Arthur Smith.

Their new diet is still fixing the issues, currently at 0.500 (3-3). However, the coaching staff are in a hurry by the media on a slow start. On Friday, a reporter asked Pees about the total number of 10 sacks (30th worst in the NFL) posted by the Falcons defense, and why he did not “put more pressure”.
Pees took the rudimentary advice and gave a “push on” surgical approach as an instruction for his defensive unit.
“I’ve been doing this for a long time,” Pees replied, then pitting the reporter against the dilemma of not having a proper defensive line to put pressure on the opposing quarterback, leaving the secondary on pins and needles for great achievements. .
The coach briefed the reporter on the adjustments made since the Falcons’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, 32-6, in Week 1, and how his constant rotations trigger an improvement in performance – going 3-2 since the trip to Philly.
