  1. How many teams in the past can be at least considered as having the best WR tandem, best RB tandem, MVP QB, best front 7, most under rated CB and I'll add secondary. On top of that we have no major holes and I bet our LBs are considered outstanding by mid season. I can't think of one team in recent memory that has been this loaded on both sides of the ball.
  2. Don't forget best QB!
  3. Some people think that we are going to regress this year because Shanahan has left. I think that Ryan now owns the offense and Sark is there to be his eyes and ears from the booth and to manage player changes and of course the initial calls. But make no mistake, at this point I would be shocked if Ryan doesn't have Payton Manning control over the offense. On top of that, our D is going to be able to really put pressure on other teams. I bet that we get on average at least one more possession a game because of our improved defense. We scored TD's over 50% of the time we had the ball last year. I think we keep that same rate. That's at least 8 more T.D.s. I for one see Ryan leading this offense to be better than last year. I would be surprised to see our starters pulled by the 4th quarter in half our games next year. Yeah, I'm that confident.
  4. You are correct. This isn't like the Ravens, who had an epic defense but a putrid offense. Teams just tried to keep it close and didn't take chances. Atlanta's offense is going to abuse the other team, which will cause them to open it up. Other teams will get some yards but I think because our defense is much improved you will see our offense with an additional one or two possessions a game.
  5. Yup. There's not going to be any hang over. The offense will be as good, if not better than last year and that defense will and has improved.
  6. This is a stupid assessment. We have a better OC mainly because we just lost the massive ego of shanahan and got a few new wrinkles. Plus, I guarantee two things will be different. One, we run the ball more than 5 times in the second half in this years super bowl and two, Matt is put in a position to call more of his own plays and audible from the line. Barring injury, we will have a better offense than last year. We got better everywhere.
  7. I would have bet prior to the draft that we would not keep a FB and keep an extra TE. The extra TE being used as an H back. Not sure if Saubert can do that because we need someone who can block at the H back. Now I'm thinking we keep a FB, but it really feels like a wasted roster space as he probably will only see the field 6 or 7 times a game. Maybe Lolo will be our H back??? We need him on the line as a traditional TE. I dunno, but I'm sure that the coaching staff has it all planned out already.
  8. No one in Carolina except the fans think their Oline is going to be any good. It's the joke of the team on local sports radio in NC.
  9. This is all I have to say!!!
  10. Carolina is going to be terrible this year. Last in the division and lucky to win seven games. I was listening to local Raleigh Radio coming home from work Friday and Mick Mixon was on. There is a real genuine concern with Scam's shoulder, the oline and the backend of the defense. The feeling (although no one on the radio would say it) is that scam might not make it the entire season, because his shoulder will not be 100% when he starts the season and that will force him to run and due to the putrid Oline he is going to get hurt again. I believe one of the regular radio guys asked, "is the beginning of the end for cam if he gets hurt again" and the reply from Mixon was, "I don't know, we will see". Not a huge vote of confidence from your team play by play guy who knows more about the team then just anybody. To be honest, I hope Cam plays the whole year. He doesn't scare anyone anymore and his age and injury issues have just caught up with him. He doesn't have the work ethic or mental ability to elevate his game above his physical ability and that is all is was based on for years. Carolina's running game will not be that good.
  11. The Saints are going to be horrible this year. When Bree's starts declining significantly they might not win four games.
  12. It's a DK and Mike Smith team. That means they will come out and do exactly what they did the week before the bye, no changes, no improvements, nothing. The only thing it will be good for them is that they can heal a little.
  13. Here is the really sick part of it all. For years the Falcon's had some of the tools, but there were always holes. There were always injuries. There was always a coaching staff that quite didn't have the boys ready to go for it. And the biggest thing, we didn't know how to win. You saw that in the playoffs and in some tough games we lost. Well guess what. Our team is young and fast and talented. We have the coaches that are now coaching the boys up to play and have an attitude of brotherhood. But the scariest part, for the rest of the league... This team knows how to win. We excised those demons with the trashing of the Seahawks and Green Bay in the playoffs. For three quarters we demolished the "empire" of New England. We made Brady look like a novice and our offense picked apart the #1 defense in the league. Yeah, we lost the super bowl, but in doing so the Patriots wakened a sleeping giant. The warlord is going to take this team over and by sheer will and the brotherhood the Falcon's are going to dismantle the NFL next year.
  14. trading for Sherman might be one of the most self-destructive the Falcon's could do. Evan's just wishes we would do it because he knows we are going to own the south for the foreseeable future. Why would we want another high profile contract at a position were we are loaded with young talent and good veterans. What possible advantage could getting Sherman give us?
  15. they said the same garbage when they had freeman at QB. See how far that got them. They have some nice pieces. This is the year they take a step back.
