  1. How would you feel if in the 2nd or 3rd round the Falcons drafted a FS/CB swing player?
  2. Braves still would have found a way to overcome all that if it weren't for the Lonnie Smith baserunning screw up. Worst baserunning ever.
  3. I'm fine. I don't need to make myself feel better. I couldn't be happier. I'm in school and I'm close to graduating soon and earning my associates degree. Things are awesome right now.
  4. Once I vent and get it all out of my system I'm fine. I don't dwell on it weeks later. What exactly is the point of being depressed about what happened in the Super Bowl? All that would do is make me completely miserable and why should I do that when my life is flipping awesome right now?
  5. Spurrier bombed in the NFL because he was too busy trying to recreate that NFL version of the 1990s Florida Gators and most of those guys were bums in the NFL.
  6. Right. This draft is so loaded on defensive talent that we could trade back and get 3 or 4 key defensive players and throw a top 10 defense on the field in 2017. That's a real possibly.
  7. I post here to pass my free time. I post here during games. 82,000 posts in nearly 15 years of me posting here isn't really all that much. Football isn't that important to me. Not to the point of where I get physically depressed over a loss and have to seek counseling. If I were a player, coach or GM. Then sure. But I'm not. Football is entertainment. I have no say in what happens so which should it effect me so much?
  8. I'm not a huge Rico Allen fan but we have more pressing needs in my opinion. I'd love to see the Falcons sure up the RG position. I don't remember who it was that was wanting Dan Freeny from Indiana but dude would be a perfect fit here in our zone blocking scheme. Ideally the Falcons trade back into the early 2nd round and pick up an addition 2nd and/3rd and draft OG, base DE, DT, and a hybrid DE/OLB. Also another true OLB would be a solid addition too, ideally a guy that can play inside and outside linebacker. That is what I'd like to see us do in the draft.
  9. What score did you get there?
  10. Pitching wasn't the Braves pitching in the World Series. Offense was the Braves issue in the World Series. Go back and look at the scores of those games that they lost. 1991 Game 1 - Lost 5-2 Game 2 - Lost 3-2 Game 3 - Won 5-4 Game 4 - Won 3-2 Game 5 - Won 14-5 Game 6 - Lost 4-3 Game 7 - Lost 1-0 Offense = 7 Runs/1.75 RPG in 4 losses. Pitching = 13 Runs/3.25 RPG in 4 losses. 1992 Game 1 - Won 3-1 Game 2 - Lost 5-4 Game 3 - Lost 3-2 Game 4 - Lost 2-1 Game 5 - Won 7-2 Game 6 - Lost 4-3 Offense = 10 Runs/2.5 RPG in 4 losses. Pitching = 14 Runs/3.5 RPG in 4 losses. 1996 Game 1 - Won 12-1 Game 2 - Won 4-0 Game 3 - Lost 5-2 Game 4 - Lost 8-6 Game 5 - Lost 1-0 Game 6 - Lost 3-2 Offense = 10 Runs/2.5 RPG in 4 losses Pitching = 17 Runs/4.25 RPG in 4 losses 1999 Game 1 - Lost 4-1 Game 2 - Lost 7-2 Game 3 - Lost 6-5 Game 4 - Lost 4-1 Offense = 9 Runs/2.25 RPG in 4 losses. Pitching = 21 Runs/5.25 RPG in 4 losses. Offense scored 2 runs or less in 11 of 16 losses and just 3 runs in another. Can't blame those World Series losses on the pitching, especially when the Braves lost 6 games in which they gave up 3 runs or fewer. You shouldn't lose when you give up 3 or fewer runs.
  11. I don't think this team is going to assume anything is a given. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones are two of our team leaders that dealt with the downfall that was 2013. They're not going to let that happen again.
  12. The Braves didn't make it to the World Series 14 times so... But seriously, what reason do I have to not believe that 2016 wasn't the start of a great run of success for the Falcons?
  13. Absolutely. I'm excited about the future. Falcons fielded one of the youngest teams in the NFL in 2016 and made it to the Super Bowl with a 2nd year HC. They're only going to improve!
  14. Power rankings? LOL!! Seriously dude? Power rankings? Yes, I'm being dead serious. 2016 was only the beginning of the Braves becoming one of the powerhouse franchises in the NFL. It's called being optimistic. You should try it sometime. You might actually like it instead of being a sour puss.
