  1. Was going to say the same thing. I will go even further and say Perkins is special, and it did not make any sense why they gave Toilolo the contract they did. So that gives the Falcons (3) TEs very close in talent and development, why would you need a 4th at the same talent level? Lot of good TEs come from the UDFA pool every year, and sounds like there will be even more than usual this year, that is where they will get their 4th TE. My prediction is the Falcons will not draft a TE.
  2. Based on the numbers from here and 'Falcoholic', it looks like OG was one of the fewest number of players looked at by category, and ironically one of their greatest positions of need. That says to me that an OG will go in the 1st or no later than the 2nd round. If they were planning to take an OG in the later rounds, you would looking at closer to +20-prospect visits vs. only 6-prospect visits. Of course the number of potential prospects goes down the higher you pick a position. Safe bet to say OG, Round (1-2).
  3. Why? You would secretly be the envy of every Panthers Fan.
  4. I'll give you a Falcons 'Rise-Up' towel for every 10-pounds you lose?
  5. Take away the hype machine, and NE is just an average NFL team, and average only because the AFC is not as strong as the NFC. Just more media hype, this creep knows they are not a 16-0 team, he is just doing what he gets paid to do.
  6. Clicked on to see what this had to do with the Falcons. I guess whatever is on your mind?
  7. If he is not making the tackle, he is always around where the ball is, split-seconds away from the tackle. He needs to be a Falcon.
  8. Moving up in the past has worked well 67% of the time. This time TD just needs to stay put. Somebody we need will fall.
  9. I respect famous athletes for taking a stand on the wrongs of the world. They are very powerful symbols, and if anyone can create change it is our athletes. Now I do not agree with them on the flag issue, but I cannot sit here and say they need to wield their influence to create change, and then tell they cannot do it for something I do not agree with. To this day, I have little respect for Michael Jordan, at one time one of the most powerful people on the planet. What did he do with that influence.......nothing.
  10. Hard to believe you have ever picked-up a religious document of any kind, you sure do not live it!
  11. AH's lawyer is now implying that he was murdered in his cell. Based on his sociopath tendencies, would have to agree with that. A sociopath rarely tries to inflict harm on themselves, they are all about survival at all costs.
  12. Just a joke man, did I miss something, is he the first/second messiah? And yes there are many who question his motives. I do not know enough about him personally to say one way or the other. Just because the hype machine depicts him as something, that does not necessarily prove he lives up to that depiction.
  13. Maybe there are some things we do not about Tim Tebow?
  14. I celebrate the ones that pulled themselves up out of the situations that Hernandez sought to put himself into, by just getting a steady job. Hernandez not only had a job, he had a privileged lifestyle, what more could anyone want. It turns out that he was a sociopath, no feelings or empathy for anyone or anything but yourself, with the perceived impunity to get away with whatever you did. Trust me, he took what he thought was the easiest way out, he was simply an opportunist as all sociopaths are. This world needs fewer people like him, but he did not do the world a favor, he did himself a favor.
  15. Hope you are right, and it is that easy. Would rather the luck equation be taken out.
  16. I don't care how good our front office is, there was a large amount of luck involved with the last two drafts, and no one can expect repeat performances like that. Best to hold on dearly to the talent you found, and not let them slip away.
  17. A couple of years ago, thought Levitre's salary for this year and next was unjustifiable, but OL salaries have sky-rocketed since then. As far as finding money for Matthews, he will get a 5th year extension, and his first big contract will not come into play, until after Levitre's contract has ended. Ryan's extension comes up after Levitre's contract has expired. Beasley will get a 5th year extension, Neal will get a 5th year extension, these guys come-up way down the road. Levitre is part of an offense that was 8th best in history, get use to the idea that he is going to be around another two seasons. His replacement will already be on board and ready to go at that time.
  18. Exactly, this makes less than no sense!
  19. You know what happened as well as I do, KS was not the reason we lost. He did take the blame like he was supposed to though. The fact that the QB could not change a 'certain' play(s) makes things even more suspicious.
  20. People know more about the Falcons now because they were playing through to the last week of the season.
  21. When is Reed going to play, after we draft a DE in the 1st/2nd. Shelby will go back to DE along with Clayborn. Beasley always was and always will be a DE. Looks to me like Reed is going back to LB, either that or he will be sent walking. He has to play somewhere with that salary?
  22. Ishmael will excel at LB. He was too slow to play S, but what he brings will fit to a tee in the middle of the field. He will be our 4th LBer behind Jones, Campbell, Reed. He has the frame to add weight, no problem. Good experiment! Goodwin to CB = Great Experiment Hageman to DE = Bad Experiment Shelby to DT = Bad Experiment Crawford to DT = Good experiment Allen to FS = Good Experiment Poole to FS = Good Experiment King to CB = Good Experiment
  23. This is true, and do not discount the 5th year option on any 1st round pick. This gives us a better chance of holding on to the best player in the draft long term.
  24. Would consider this one of the lighter games on our schedule. A team with a noodle-armed QB past his prime. Seattle did not have any problem with them last year......Speaking of Seattle, how is it we get to go back in that snake pit this year?
  25. Well that just about explains everything, and you were quiet.
