  1. Past hour
  2. Was that in PM?? I seem to recall an actual post by him about that
  3. Now they don't call you Sponge for nothing.
  4. I dont think that would suit the strength of our current DL at all.
  5. Work hours guys don’t last long. Anyone who has over 350+ touches per season isn’t going to have a career that lives beyond 5 years. If they do their production will drop significantly after those 5 years.
  6. I hope not. If only because it would mean we were mirroring the demise of Mike Smith. 1. year with Major injuries cost us the season. 2. Lets try some 4/3 4/3 hybrid Amoeba stuff and have Senat cover Mike Thomas...
  7. Honestly, I want the best players on the field at all time. Whether it's Freeman, Ollison, Smith, Hill, Green, IDC. I just want the best out there and if we need to trade for another number 2 if Freeman doesn't come back completely (which I DO think he will, he's has a whole year to train and heal and I believe he will be fresher than he was behind SJ) but no matter what the scenario, best 11 on the field, that means that if Freeman comes out the person who swap out better not be such a huge drop off that the offense takes a drop in production. When Coleman used to swap with Freeman, they were TOTALLY different styles, but very much productive as the next. There were even times when Ward would come in and get those tough yards, lay the wood and be productive, but the key was getting him in there at the right time. I know it will take a while to find out for sure just what we have in these backs, but its one of the reasons I'm thankful for the extra preseason game. Our backups should get PLENTY of playing time next week.
  8. @Tandy You have my sympathy. I wish and hope that you and your loved ones find the right path forward. Nothing will ever be the same nor should it be.
  9. While you are correct, I tend to think of it in a more positive way. - Any NFL back who's a rode like a workhorse through the season, will either get hurt at an inopportune time or will be running on fumes later in the season. I think our RBC is just an acknowledgement of this and not of a deficiency in a player. RBC also provides better visibility into if we have the next Walter Peyton sitting in the wings.
  10. That’s wrong, but funny.
  11. Edit: Just thinking about the "Wizard of Oz" right now! Great movie, especially this scene with the munchkins!!! Had to flush a goldfish last night!
  12. Ain’t nobody stealing opportunities from Freeman. Those fans are complete idiots
  13. Honestly wasn’t expecting it to go away
  14. One thing i found interesting were the notes that the Falcons were running a base of a 3-4 Bear. I know we arent going 3-4 but a hybrid concept of 4-3 under/3-4 full time. It would be awesome if we came out in the 4-3 under but with 3-4 personnel. If i were personally to become a DC, it is the system i would run. i always run this in Madden.
  15. Take heart, Free will never be a workhorse back. His frame can't sustain that and our coaches are not that dumb. Especially from a dude coming off being on IR for a year.
  16. The capital and bankroll they have is just ridiculous...
  17. Falcons Fans there’s a bunch on twitter. They're tired of players stealing opportunities from Free.
  18. He's going to be elected to something one day and it pains me to recognize that.
  19. The only thing I worry about is all these chefs in the kitchen. DQ is going to need to make sure everyone understands their role or this could get ugly(a team pulled in different directions offensively from game to game or series to series).
  20. I like most of these. But #8 deserves a little
  21. So you are going out on a ledge here and predicting the Falcons players won’t get through the season without someone on the roster getting dinged up. Wow, you are quite a risk taker you are.
