  1. Past hour
  2. Indians are expected to activate Francisco Lindor during this series.
  3. @Nono have you apologized to the Rich family yet?
  4. I would venture to say the four positions are: DE, DT, OT, & CB.
  5. I think we'll see the kind of intensity that Quinn's Seahawk defenses played with. Much the same as what we saw in 2016 after he took over from Richard Smith. As for last season, too many key players got injured. After they went out, there was only one word to describe our defense: besieged. Barring another epidemic of injuries to key players, this D will look and play with the ferocity we have been pining for to return since 2016.
  6. Exactly! Not necessarily taking a “significantly lesser” player just because it’s a need. Therein lies the rub. We don’t get to define that. Means we could trade up if we get what we want or stay and get a similar player that isn’t necessarily significantly lesser...depends on their definition and criteria.
  7. That’s part of being a fan. It’s good to have disagreements
  8. In an RPO system, the linemen don't know if they are going to pass protect or run protect. That prevents linemen in an RPO system from firing off the line for a running play or setting up properly for pass protection. In some systems, RPO linemen assume a run, so they run block for the play. That results in linemen often 5 yards downfield when the pass is thrown, which is ok in the NCAA as "lineman downfield" penalties are rarely called. (The NCAA is considering enforcing this more tightly) The "limeman downfield" penalty is called much more tightly in the NFL so the OL have to unlearn this and be much more passive on driving downfield.
  9. the draft cant get here fast enough
  10. Yeah, it suddenly appeared again. Weird.
  11. I doubt it. The more options you have, the less likely you are to overpay. I believe picks #11-15 are a sweet spot in the draft as long as at least two QBs come off the board as their is a talent drop off IMHO outside of Top 15. Sooooo, to me this makes the Falcons an attractive trading partner for teams in the #6-10 range that might want to move down. Of course it’s just a theory - grain of salt and all that.
  12. First time in Ryan’s Career. How many times for Brees? More than 1/3 of his career in NO....(I’m allowing 7-8 as well)
  13. The whole Need v BPA argument is nonsense. There isn’t a team in the NFL that doesn’t take account of both factor’s when drafting - as well as a whole raft of other factors like scheme fit, depth of talent available, character, medical issues etc As for TD, he’s a very good GM. He around and old, rudderless 4-12 team which hadn’t had a winnng record for 3 years, injust off-season.At the time, everyone football pundit expected us to be the worst in the NFL in 2008, and th consensus view was that we were 3-5 years away for being competitive. Even the optimistic predictions only had us winning 3 or 4 games in 2008, and many picked us to go 1-15. In a decade TD built 2 rosters which SHOULD have won super bowls. Not rosters that “could” possibly have won if lucky, but rosters which SHOULD have won - and would have done so without boneheaded coaching. Generally speaking we draft well. We do make mistakes, but so does every body else because that’s the nature of the NFL draft. Our biggest problem isn’t player evaluation ... it is that our organisation overvalues and over-invests draft picks in the WR and CB position at the expense of the OL especially. We’ve done it for 3 decades, so it’s not necessarily a TD issue.
  14. Falcons still have more wins. Super Bowl is tainted just like your team Who cares about NFCS championships It says a lot that you’d rather be here with people that hate your team instead of the fan base that actually supports them. F*** the Aints.
  15. My post? I still see it.
  16. Huh, I responded to this and I don’t see the post. I didn’t think it crossed the line or revealed personal info. Not sure what happened.
  17. Yep. I'm ready for this draft. I think DQ and TD are so locked in. No way DQ isn't salivating at all of this talent along the DL and his expertise at that spot. I truly believe Oliver is their #1 dream pick and will move up for him. But even if he's gone, I don't think they panic at all.
  18. I heard a reporter this morning say something extremely d***ing to the entire administration. He said that in past administrations — Rep and Dem — if he had a lede and contacted them, and they said it was false, he would halt the story and go back to his sources to figure out the truth. Now, he simply calls them for comments knowing they are lying to him. So the WH press office has gone from a source that reporters can trust and as a check against their reporting to a dishonest, lying spin machine for the president and his campaign. The media has got to start highlighting the lack of credibility and honesty by the PEOPLE they are covering...they have to demonstrate the lack of credibility of the SOURCE. Stop treating each statement by SHS as true or not and start highlighting that she, as a source, is discredited because of all the lies she has told.
  19. Reply with the buff Bernie saying, "Feel the Bern."
  20. In between posts asking people to hire snak as their real estate agent.
  21. snak is on jdave's facebook page ****posting about Rubio and McCain and how Trump was the only one who could drain the swamp.
