  1. Past hour
  2. Yeah, same here. I'm watching the games, but only for the free beer, nood table dances and TATF camaraderie.
  3. Matt Bryant missed that kick on purpose... "With the first pick in the 2020 NFL draft, the Atlanta Falcons pick..."
  4. If already posted, my bad. Mortensen of ESPN said that Blank said he must show improvement by week 9 or else...
  5. We'd have the worst QB Rating allowed in history if not for Miami. I think we are around 117, but they are in the 130s.
  6. When has TD ever traded down in the first round? The whole exercise is chaos theory since there's no way to know/prove where we would be if we'd selected in a different position. All we know for sure is that we took a guy who showed signs of greatness, only to get seriously injured in his first game. After 2016, Atlanta looked like it had nailed the Beasley pick. Circling back to Mark Sanchez, after his consecutive AFC Championship appearances, everyone thought he was the next great QB. The Falcons have even had this happen fairly recently. Peria Jerry looked like a stud in camp and was in the backfield a lot his two games. Then, he hurt his knee and was never the same. People fetishize high draft picks like they're magic beans. The reality is that it takes 53 guys. But any exercise that involves woulda/coulda about last year's draft should begin with an acknowledgment that Atlanta took a fine-looking player who immediately went down for the body of the season.
  7. The only thing that would boost the crowd Sunday is being able to see a 150% healthy Todd Gurley
  8. Vic our pass rush specialist and Tru our #1 CB... Look no further as to why we can't get off the field on 3rd downs. (Also checks on Neal's replacement and tackling/YAC stats, yep) I've noticed Foye spelling Debo a few snaps so far this season. Pitch count or protecting his foot? I've also seen Campbell play Vic's spot at "OLB" in the Base D. This front is better vs the run but Tyeler would've been just fine at 1T and Grady at 3T in base in the old 4 man front. The issue is we don't have enough DEs vs the run??? Bailey and Cominsky, even Takk, gotta be good enough on run D to let us go back to 4-3 and get Foye on the field more and Vic pushed to less snaps. What could hurt?
  9. That’s what YouTube and All 22 is for. Technology has came a long way since the 80’s
  10. Sheffield was always in the right place in the preseason, too. Just didn't turn his head to play the ball. Oliver has been out of position so many times but those are mental errors. He was in hip pockets vs the Cardinals, but gotta finish with his length on a couple of those bombs he gave up. (One was the questionable sideline catch and the other was the fumble that was not overturned into a fumble) Sheffield went mostly vs Fitz. Give him meaningful snaps outside like Quinn is saying. I like it.
  11. Nothing to discuss. They have no marbles.
  12. Yep. Plays a totally passive game. Even in run defense. He's avoided contact like the plague in a scheme that demands physicality. Think about that. That's why I'm for scrubbing this whole thing. DQ deserves a lot of the blame for allowing these things for so long. Tru should have been on a very short leash after that Browns game but because he was the "#1 CB on the team" he was allowed to keep going. All of this set precedence to what was allowed. Now it's snowballed into a problem I don't think he can correct.
  13. Aren't we also challenging MIA for worst QB rating allowing in history?
  14. No one said every year, but he's absolutely someone expected to become an All-Pro. Any OG who goes in the top 20 of the draft is, unless it's just a horrifically thin year.
  15. Miami is currently at 50% According to Pro Football Reference, no team has finished a season at over 50% since they started tracking this stat in 1991. Discuss.
  16. He has been afraid since that injury...
  17. A red herring? We have 5 sacks on the season lol
  18. Yep. He thinks he can just out athletic guys and it works sometimes but the more crafty guys give him fits because of his lazy technique. The problem is he's in scheme designed for proper technique first, then athleticism. You don't play your assignment correctly, you and the rest of the defense are beat before it begins.
  19. Sounds like something Joker would do.
  20. To begin, you only reach this point because you’ve hit rock-bottom as a team and as its HC. It’s time for a new direction, even if that means an interim HC for the rest of the year. Letting Quinn go and putting someone else in charge gives fans and players a very visual, definitive turning-of-the-page no matter who that person is. A change would take the weight of the Quinn drama off the players’ back. They would probably be excited to hear somebody with a fresh voice and viewpoint. Maybe the players would loosen up and play a little better for somebody else. Can’t play much worse. Whoever is the interim HC, there will be no pressure on that guy or the players because they’re now trying to clean up the mess and regroup. No fan in their right mind would expect an instant transformation from where this team is at right now, especially on the defensive side of the ball. I’m among those who would just like to see somebody else with the Headset on the sidelines, even if they presided over another loss. Again, the attendance these next two home games will tell the tale as to Quinn’s continuing on as HC. If the place is virtually empty, you know the announcers will really play that up and stir the pot with close-ups of Lame Duck Dan still standing along the sidelines pretending he’s not a lame duck. That would be an embarrassment for Blank. Then the team will come out and get trashed by the Rams and then the Seahawks to put the icing on the fail cake. Doesn't seem like much more of an attractive scenario to finish out the year than just firing him and appointing an interim imo. Especially since there hasn't been one iota of progress made on cleaning up the defense in these last few weeks.
  21. To be fair to Tru, it's hard to run with your head jammed up your ***. Tru's problems honestly aren't physical, though I agree with you completely. Tru's problems are between his ears. And the sad thing is he knows better and he still puts that garbage on tape. Just lazy.
  22. That's what happens when you no longer have mismatch CBs. Tru and Oliver don't play the same game. Sheffield isn't scared to jam at the LOS and play physical. Same with Oliver. As a result, you saw a small improvement at CB because of at least having CBs with the same play style. That's been overlooked for a while. Tru likes to avoid contact and rely on his athleticism.
