Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian looks on during warm ups before wild-card playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Jan. 6, 2018, in Los Angeles.

In a scathing review of the offensive game plan against the Philadelphia Eagles, on analyst alleges that Falcons coordinator Steve Sarkisian did a poor job of game-planning, didn’t use fundamental concepts that other teams used to exploit the Eagles defense and ran just three double-moves routes that were not set up.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Sarkisian is being retained by the Falcons for 2018. He felt the offense “under-executed” in 2017. But there were issues with play-calling (Jet sweep on the 1-yard line) all season.
