  1. Past hour
  2. I know some don’t know what they are watching during a game and go to NFL Player Stats to form their opinions, but that’s pretty silly. PFF breaks down every single snap on film, and looks at something called QB “Pressures”. In 2016, Hageman was ranked #4 out of 127 DTs in the NFL in QB pressures per snap.
  3. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/news/atlanta-falcons-mock-draft-2019-seven-rounds-picks-big-board-team-needs-multiple-options-for-every-selection/ Team needs The CBS Sports NFL writing staff recently compiled positional rankings to identify needs for each team heading into the draft. A helpful guide: any position group that had an average ranking worse than 16.0 (on a scale of 1 to 32) was considered a "need," while any that ranked worse than 23.0 (bottom-third of the league) was considered a "pressing need." QB RB WR/TE OL EDGE INT DL LB DB 8.6 20.6 5.2 14.4 21.2 23.2 16.5 27.3 Needs: RB, EDGE, INT DL, LB, DB Pressing: DB
  4. We drafted Senate in the 3rd and he has a lot of upside.
  5. Even if Lawrence is Payne do we need him? If we aren’t keeping Grady long term then yes. If we are I say no, because of Senat. Plus we have Crawford, Davison and more for depth. If we play nickle 70 % it would be Grady majority at DT with either Takk, Clay, Crawford or someone else in that Bennett role. I think DE is more a need if we aren’t keeping Vic. If we are keeping Vic he proved he was better as a rotational piece. So still need a good DE. The next biggest need to me would be a RT to take over in a year or 2 if not now or a CB to take over for Tru next year.
  6. Is your fever over yet at least? For the Falcons here...we've taken a couple speedy corners in the draft now. Also, I really like Brian Hill as the 3rd RB at this point in the draft so don't value taking a RB after round 4 probably... http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/brian-hill?id=2558112 I'm torn...Redwine makes sense for slot corner and S depth; even though we signed the 2 safeties recently it's about competition... BUT given our heavy D draft to this point? We probably could afford to take Nauta or a TE here to develop...depends on the staff truly valuing Saubert...who has just 2 years left on his rookie deal but would be the odd man out unless we'd cut Paulsen?
  7. And for the record, I’m glad he is getting another shot. But some of the hyperbole regarding him is laughable. After the 2016 season, he wasn’t a better player than Grady as I’ve seen suggested. Honestly, if no off field issues surfaced, he likely would be playing elsewhere cause we wouldn’t have paid him 6-7 mill avg
  8. To.be fair dude wasnt trying and was.26 before he showed anything.
  9. Sorry, haven't tried to
  10. Its called Passion of the Christ..lol Bout to watch it now with the kids
  11. I did look it up, evidently you didn't. The only time the saints ever led in the series was after the first game played between the two teams. They haven't led since. Are you suffering from dementia or denial?
  12. If we were linked to Da'Ron Payne but the trade up and the fall didn't work out and the above is true, then I would imagine he is our target somewhere. Probably a trade back to pick up an extra 3rd. I do think Lawrence is Plan B. Still believe EO is Plan A. I don't think there are any CBs in the first round that match DQs profile. Greedy has the length but not the CT. Deandre/Byron has the CT but not the length.
  13. To me, this shows more how inconsistent a RB Tevin was or our run game details being that far behind the Broncos OL. Lindsay as an UDFA is a better RB that Coleman according to stats, but I'd wager their blocking and DESIGN was better than ours; regardless of the injuries. Both are ZBS right? Both TeCo and Lindsay are burners, right? That's the comparison here, IMO. Not Ito vs Lindsay. Why? Tevin was thought to be better than what we saw in 2018 and so why would we draft a Tevin replacement (Lindsay) when Freeman (Ito) ; our vision/patience runner, was the one coming off an injury to end the year and it took rehab? Apples and oranges to the player types. Either their RUN BLOCKING was better than ours; which I certainly believe that, or Tevin was that much worse than a rookie. Think about that. No wonder he got a cheap contract on the open market. ...but why be patient and look for cutbacks when we ran 93% outside zone? Doesn't really change that he tackles himself I guess. An analyst posted that in the Falcons subreddit. He was going through and doing that for all teams. That's why, IMO, if you compare the OLs and RBs compare the ones representing the other in the two situations. Falcons/Broncos run blocking and their #1 ball carriers; Coleman/Lindsay. Simple and it makes sense given they are both burners. Ito was insurance for Free and was very good in the red zone for us. Just need some explosion between the 20s out of him next year, but we could possibly use a Burner replacement for TeCo now that he is gone. OR...we're not exclusively outside zone anymore and don't value speed as much with inside zone?
  14. I decided on a safer one.
  15. Started to reply but decided today wasn’t the day to get banned But for giggles, s close #3 would be Cox, FB from Auburn
  16. Well perfesser Pompous Verbosus, you are so wrong on so many points that I don't have time to discuss all of them on an Easter Sunday. As for Trump asking for McGhan to fire Mueller, that is not a crime or obstruction. Trump could fire any of his underlings at any time , for any reason. Mueller wasn't fired so it never happened. You lefties should wipe the drool off your mouths and at least TRY to be rational. President Trump will NOT be removed from office, although I heartily encourage your clown car full of radical far left bozos to try it, thereby, assuring the re election of one Donald J. Trump.
  17. So many available retorts here.
  18. He hasn't been cleared for contact but the word with him is they are going to bring him along very, very cautiously. I'd proceed with the idea of being pleasantly surprised if we get much from him before the Florida game in 2019. It really sucks but at this point we're unlikely to get more than one full Zamir season. We'll see flashes this year but I'm not thinking he's going to be a major contributor on offense.
  19. This is how the debate has been unfolding...
  20. I remember back when the braves scapegoated Frank Wren out of town because of the money he spent on free agents that didn't work out and John Shuerholz said THIS: " We are gonna get back to the braves way ". He was referring to building thru the farm system rather than free agency. UMMMMM. Schuerholz is FAMOUS for trading the WHOLE FARM for Mark Teixeira. The WHOLE **** system... In fact, everytime the braves needed to make a big move to help their everyday lineup, Shuerholz spent Ted's money and went out and got a big bat. Frank Wren did the exact same thing and got scapegoated. THATS why I don't trust anything that comes from the braves front office. the story keeps changing... https://www.ajc.com/sports/baseball/braves-fire-wren-gonzalez-fate-determined/6f0pmRwinJRQNG8UsJNOKM/ " Braves president John Schuerholz fired Wren and assistant general manager Bruce Manno in the morning, and a few hours later sat between longtime former manager Bobby Cox and interim GM John Hart at a news conference at Turner Field, where Schuerholz talked about a desire to get back to the “Braves way” of doing things."
  21. White is my #1 want with Bush a close 2nd.
  22. Just wanted to to add that the aints suck and F them....
  23. I am somewhat skeptical of Dexter as well but I do believe he has some upside as a passrusher - but you have to have a little faith and it’s somewhat of a projection. Tony Pauline said the scouts he has spoken believe Lawrence is more athletic than DaRon Payne which surprised me a bit. If true, I would feel better about the pick. Payne put up 5.5 sacks his rookie year which is good for a 4-3 shade Nose Tackle.
  24. This is a great song by a great performer
  25. THIS.......is the mentality of the Left when they are faced with FACTS.........they have NO defense . Be ashamed Lefties, be VERY ashamed .. This is one of the reasons Our very best President will be easily re elected in 2020, there is almost NO competition.
