  1. Yeah. Basically the Cubs and Astros are the model the Braves are trying to duplicate. The issue there is that it took at least 5 years of being completely terrible before they started seeing results.
  2. But even the best head coaches need some semblance of talent to work with. They can't take chicken **** and make it into chicken salad. Some examples, HANK STRAM Chiefs = 124-76-10 (5-3) - 1 SB win Saints = 7-21 MIKE DITKA Bears = 106-62 - 1 SB win Saints = 15-33 DENNIS GREEN Vikings = 97-62 Cardinals = 16-32 MARV LEVY Chiefs = 31-42 Bills = 112-70 TOM FLORES Raiders = 83-53 Seahawks = 14-34 BUM PHILLIPS Oilers = 55-35 Saints = 27-42
  3. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Ron Rivera and the Panthers are the perfect example of why firing Dan Quinn right now would be a grave mistake. Year 1 - 6-10 Year 2 - 7-9 Year 3 - Started at 1-3. Total record of 14-22 at the time and everyone on the planet wanted Rivera fired. Remember how many games the Panthers ended up winning in year 3? 12. They had a down year 4 and in year 5 ended up in the Super Bowl. Ron Rivera and the Panthers went from being a coach that had no clue and team that didn't know up from down and left from right. But Jerry Richardson stayed patient. He left Rivera work through his mistakes and learn and grow with the team and his reward is having one of the most stable coaching staffs and franchises in the NFL now. The Panthers are good folks. They're not going anywhere anytime soon. PATIENCE!!! Folks here have absolutely no patience.
  4. Well just look at the Braves. They punted immediate success in hopes of producing a better long-term product. It's been really rough the last two years and the majority of the fanbase is pissed to the gills. Next year doesn't appear like it's going to be a whole lot better (although it should be better). I don't want the Falcons going the same route when there's absolutely no reason for them to. The Braves had a legit reason for doing what they did. Falcons don't.
  5. John Elway never did until he did and he was 37 when he finally did because he finally had a legit team around him and wasn't trying to do it all alone.
  6. Holy crap!!
  7. I'll have to go back and look again then because I don't recall a Falcons game where Kyle wasn't on the sideline.
  8. Yep. I remember that part too.
  9. Since when is Shanny in the booth?
  10. That was ugly. Needs to learn to trust his line again. There was no reason for him to try to escape to the outside there. Step up into the pocket and set your feet and turn it loose. He's such a mess right now.
  11. I'd love to see Matt Ryan crap the bed in the Super Bowl. It's better than not getting there at all.
  12. I actually don't disagree with you about something. You're right, Folty has pitched enough in the majors now and had his ups and downs to where what he did last night should become common place with him.
  13. I completely disagree. You can definitely change someone's personality. It happens all the time in all walks of life.
  14. Maybe talent wise but the 1998 Falcons still hold the team record for most points scored.
  15. You don't have to throw hard to be a good pitcher.
