  1. Past hour
  2. He comes off the books already. Vic is as good as gone and with that we get 13 million back. Trufant has regressed and isn’t worthy of his salary but idk if we want 5 mill in dead money. I hope we can trade Vic and add a couple pieces to experiment with this year.
  3. I am still thinking that he may be a 11th hour trade. Teams are going to wait until the last possible second to devalue him as much as possible and make the Falcons as desperate as possible. My only hope is TD doesn't do something stupid...
  4. I dont disagree with this...dude is usually a quiet one anyways, but plays hard...and he hasnt looked the same this season as all. There was a 3rd and very long play earlier in the season(back when we thought making a few adjustments would mean likely victory), and he was in a terrible position and just completely lost focus and stopped his feet, the wideout got the angle on him and resulting first down. Plays like that may seem minuscule, but plays identical to that have added up as the season went on, resulting in a historically bad defense.
  5. At first thought, I would say no. However, when you look at his win-loss record (44-19-1) as an NFL coach, it is impressive. Many say that Harbaugh stinks as a college HC, but his win-loss record (72-37) is still on the positive side. There is a big difference between coaching in college as opposed to the NFL. Maybe Harbaugh is not as good at recruiting than other HC's in the college ranks. Maybe Harbaugh doesn't know as much about developing raw talent on the college level but is better with the pros. I don't know why he hasn't gotten the Michigan program playing better than it is. However, I do recall him doing well in the NFL, and his teams played hard and relentless.
  6. who are those players and how are they performing compared to Vic
  7. This was a chips all in season. We were title hunting and we’re willing to pay the cost in the following years…since no title is coming this year, we may as well start churning
  8. I'll just never understand the re-signing/5th year option on Vic. Has never made any sense. Legit players we could have brought in for less.
  9. Yup, I agree. My meaning was that we aren't really going to be able to trade him.
  10. Phillies is said to be leaning heavily toward Girardi, offer could happen by the end of the week. Mets met with him for a second time yesterday but they are unlikely to be decided before Philly makes an offer.
  11. And pay his salary... For a what? 6th? 7th? Not worth it. Let him play out the year, hope some team overpays for his services, get a comp pick and move on.
  12. At this point wouldn't the Falcons have to give someone something to take Vic?
  13. Apparently, Trump thinks he is doing a good job!

Republicans want STRONG BORDERS and NO CRIME. Democrats want OPEN BORDERS which equals MASSIVE CRIME.
  14. Yup, this is Tru. He isn't going anywhere this year. Next year he would net us $5m in savings...but his numbers for 2019 make him practically untradeable.
  15. Hopefully we give these guys carries this season so we can see what we have.
  16. It's hard to look worse than allowing a score every time the other team has the ball....which is basically what we've been doing. So I'm all for seeing what the young guys have. Don't bench all the starters, just have a good mix of snaps.
  17. Yup, which is why in the other thread I mentioned we are not operating from a position of power. IF we do trade him, WE will eat a ton of money and get pennies on the dollar. At that point, not worth it.
  18. The official Falcons YouTube page can't even get the name right. They don't care anymore either
  19. Hey..It was said with respect. Beauty, brains & sports is the rare triple threat.
  20. We are going to have to send a pick back in order to get rid of Beasley.
  21. Who is one of the more productive pass rushers that will be an FA that won't be highly expensive? Sign a pass rusher and draft a pass rusher.
  22. Walk me through your math.

  23. It would have to be a low to mid tier FA, Unless we fix the cap hayell we are in.
  24. Honestly, this is where you evaluate the young talent on the roster to see who you can build around. So yes, you absolutely should be limiting the snaps of the Vic and Takk's of the world. Problem is Quinn is trying to save face, he wants to win, the players want to win, and I wonder what Blank thinks. I'm sure he wants to win, but I think at this point the majority of this fanbase is ok with riding out this joke of a season, cleaning house and getting as high of a pick as possible.
  25. Not even FA. Do we have someone currently on the roster? Take Freeman for example ... is a RBBC of Hill, Ito, and Ollison + rookie giving us the same production at a fraction of the price?
