  1. TE in round 1 is an ok pick if hes the Best player availability for our scheme offense or defense if the falcons really want an impactful DE/passrusher sign one its very very difficult to find elite or impactful pass rushers late in the 1st and be good in year 1 it happens but late in round 1 its rare. most of the guys that are late gems are guys that developed in to great players we need someone from day 1 this season that can rush opposite of beasley. Just look at hageman has all the tools to be not just a good player but an all pro type player but still hasn't put it together yes he has gotten better but it shows just how much development is need from most guys even Beasley and how long it can take even if they ever develop into good players. I'm still leaning towards taking a defensive player even another CB another speed LBer or DL even if he has to develop but a high upside tight end wouldn't hurt makes it very hard to double Julio with an athletic te with size gaberial in the slot and sanu outside then either Coleman or freeman out of the back field. Cooper is a solid option but I don't see him being a high upside type guy who can pull coverage away from julio at times. We are a Superbowl caliber team the time to over pay for an impactful player is now like JPP he is good enough to make this defense scary because he can play inside or outside as well.
  2. Dominique Easley is the guy I would target he has very high upside elite inside pass rusher very similar to Jarrett
  3. Donald is a lot like Sheldon Richardson who can pretty much play anywhere on the DL even played some LBer Its not like Donald is 6-6 350 he like 6-1 280 he will play a JJ watt type role or he will rush standing up.
  4. Wow to many of you guys pick and prod one year y'all saying he had a bunch of pressures and he needs to get sacks now he has the sacks now you want more. Need to just chill dude had 15+ sacks lead the league he was double and chipped in the Superbowl why do you think freeney and Jarrett had good games it because they took beasley out of the game for the most part as teams have done if they struggle across the board then Beasley has a good day because he has single matchups. He converts a lot of them because of his athleticism not because of luck I guess he also lead the league in forced fumbles by luck to.
  5. It wasn't the momentum it was the short field new england was going to score regardless but having a short field made a comeback possible they already had the momentum at that point. Even had freeman pick him up long was a split second behind him to get the sack the difference between the two ones an incomplete more than likely and the other being a sack fumble.
  6. Jake Mathews was yet again easily beaten on that play had freeman picked his man up Ryan still may have been sacked that pressure would have easily effected the play even then Ryan could have rolled to his left avoiding the fumble and likely setting up a 3rd and 10 or dumped it off to freeman for more than likely a 15-20 yard gain. Dude is so overrated he is solid to good in the run game but below average as a pass blocker he's starting to become a reliability maybe he is better suited as a RT or guard were he will see slower players the majority of the time. Just think Chris long is not that good of a player anymore hes servicable but mathews should have been able to easily handle him in this game and should have been his easiest matchup of the postseason.Yet on the biggest play of the game he wiffed again and got the holding call and cost us the game. Freeman may have blown that play but on the next drive I think he had like a 40 yard catch and run before the julio catch and matt Ryan was great for the majority of the game this guys made plays but Mathews wasn't very good in this one and didn't have steller games against greenbay or Seattle either as his was giving up pressures a lot. Mack was beat on the Ryan sack but was pretty good the majority of the game chester was solid Schrader got beat a few times but held his own most of the game but Mathews was getting beat a lot (giving up pressures) this game and the prior two games as well if he was injuries they should have helped him out then and even then its becoming a problem he needs to hit the weight room and get stronger so he can hold up for a whole season.
  7. Assuming they resign the key offensive guys and sign some free agent vets to mix in on this defense there really are no holes Dare I say Dan Quinn and the front office are doing things the patriot way in drafting guys to not only fit there scheme but put them in a position to excel in what they do best. just look at Jones they let him use his speed they let Neal Rome and hit and be that enforced. Even on offense there speed wr use there speed and stretch the defense. They will also have Clayborne and Shelby back plus whoever they sign and draft there is depth there so I agree with TD I think if I were TD and DQ I would sign calais Campbell and trade for Sheldon Richardson that line would be Richardson as an end in the Bennett role Campbell inside with Jarrett to pull all the double teams and Beasley outside having Campbell and Jarrett inside will make it near impossible to double either Richardson or Beasley.
  8. You can look at it two ways one that its a learning process and the falcons were simply ahead of schedule this year look back at Seattle in 2012 Denver in the Superbowl after getting blown out by Seattle. Or you can say well everything line up perfect this year with home field advantage and favoritable matuchups then to build a huge lead even with poor offensive play were up 28-3 deep into the 3rd and had the great franische with the goat reeling and all but done and found a way to lose rather than win and there goes there only chance. Its really hard to say how they will respond or come back. I think its very important for Dan Quinn,TD and Aurther to go all in like the giants did last year got get a few top notch defensive players + nail the draft. If they spend a lot of money it will also show the players there all in and are determined to win it all and get back and not satisfied with what happened last year. I also think opening the season in NE and whipping them again (this time finish the job) would do wonders then open the new dome against NO and smash them again. They also have Dallas,greenbay and Seattle on the schedule next year two so it won't get any easier I think its all on the defense honestly if they play like they did the last 3 games they have a shot to win every game they play next season. The game the defense played against NE was there best yet to yea they blew it but they played more than twice as many snaps as the offense did and made Brady and the pats earn every yard threw the ball 60+ times and simply got tired.
  9. He needs to open the check book and go for it. They have a very young and talent team on the rise now is the time you go over pay for a star player to help you get over the hump there's no telling if this will be a 1 year window or a 5 year window
  10. Because it only took 9 years for TD to put a team together to get there injuries could easily derail Amy future runs and there already talking about giving Ryan a bump in pay also freeman,trufant and others A lot of Superbowls are timing and luck the falcons got there and were up 28-3 more than half way threw the 3rd quarter. Sure there a young team but a young team can easily regress and it can improve and likely over managing and feeling like they will have to play perfect will due them in next year. Because of the way they loss and how it happened anything short of 16-0 and a Superbowl will have to feel like a failure I don't think they'll make the playoffs next year due to very tough schedule and injuries plus the hangover this one is going to leave. The only way I can see them flip the script is to get the opening night game vs NE and beat the ever living **** out of them like 50-10 ckquote widget
  11. Freeman dump his guy hoping to get the ball for a check down instead Ryan though he pick him up and the rest was history It simply was a selfish play by a selfish player freeman shouldn't get paid this off season because of the last 3 weeks
  12. Sheldon Richardson for a 1st better than any rookie hasn't had a ton of sack but generates ton of pressure from the inside also having him makes its very hard to double him or Jarrett Hes young can play any spot on the DL including even Lber if needed and we also need better depth on the OL they got whipped last night.
  13. No because new england knew we were running it so maybe they bust a coverage and we get 7 and that's ball game Ryan knows he can't take a sack and he did it was OK to throw the ball but you can't take the sack
  14. Freeman even looked like he was going to pick him up and then dump him. That's frees fualt 100% it was a selfish play by a selfish player he wanted to make a play instead of doing his job.
  15. No they didn't they got tired and there offense didn't do **** to help them at the end!
