  1. A few months back on 92.9 Chuck Smith eluded to Derek Barnett being one of the best if not the best pass rusher of draft. Some say Chuck Smith is the sack whisperer.
  2. With a sweep of the Buccaneers in 2017, the Falcons will have winning recording against all our division rivals. At the conclusion of 2016 our record against each team in the south stands at: New Orleans: 50-45-0 Carolina: 27-17-0 Tampa Bay: 23-24-0 Source: http://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/atl/head-to-head.htm
  3. Edelman on catch: '70 percent luck, 30 percent skill' http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000784310/article/edelman-on-catch-70-percent-luck-30-percent-skill
  4. I know it's not going to happen, I'm just thinking out loud. However I would be so pleased if we took Joe Mixon just because it would piss off saints fans. Outside the fact I would love to see them whine, it doesn't make much since to draft him so high with the needs we do have.
  5. Here is an article about him, it goes into detail about his injury and how it affected his life. http://www.mlive.com/news/kalamazoo/index.ssf/2011/12/former_nfl_player_kalamazoo_re.html Man you're hardcore, are you from Buffalo? I lived in Wisconsin for three years (I'm from GA) and never entertained the idea of going to a game. -30 weather is no fun, muchless for 3 hours.
  6. I like this assessment about our defense and statistics compared ESPN's post free agency power rankings assessment.
  7. Do I read that in South Side Steve voice?
  8. On Reddit there is a similar thread where some of the posters have us playing Detroit on Thanksgiving and Dallas on Christmas.
  9. By chance is this it?
  10. I agree, maybe my memory is slipping so I looked it up going back to 2010: 2010: Week 3 @ NO 2011: Week 10 GA Dome vs NO 2012: Week 10 @ NO 2013: Week 1 @ NO 2014: Week 1 GA Dome vs NO 2015: Week 6 (thurs prime time) @ NO 2016: Week 3 (thurs prime time) @ NO The NFL does like us to play at New Orleans early, the last two were prime time, and were very "festive" in atmosphere. Hopefully we don't have to go through it this coming season, unfortunately I'm afraid it's here to stay. Maybe not every season, but it will be back. Just like the BS 3-28 day. Nobody said being a falcon fan was easy.
  11. If it's about ratings, I can almost guarantee we will get a rematch game one. Just a guess... 1. @ NE 2. Home opener VS Dallas or GB 3. @ NO (Katrina Bowl) It's crazy but our first three games could be prime time.
  12. Assuming we open in NE... I cannot wait to take the number one spot from NE in the power rankings the following monday
  13. He really turned it up at the end last year, I was surprised. The Trufant injury caused a lot of our guys to step up their game and grow. I'm really pumped to get him back next year with our more seasoned secondary.
  14. I could list 15+ players over the last 30 years but my top two would have to be Billy Johnson and Jamal Anderson. I really hope he can put his life in order.
  15. Outside of the Poe signing I learned last season we were the 5th worst in yards per carry, and 46% of our sacks came from one player... "an NFL worst". These stats are meaningless. Think about, in the led up to the super bowl I recall how Blount was going to run all over us, it never happened; and that guy who had 46% of our sacks was silent most of the playoffs. However Grady Jarrett tied a SB record for sacks. Yeah, the hate is strong but it goes both ways.
