    I agree that the HC is the main culprit for this year's dismal performance. Little serious attention has been paid to the LOS and the results are predictable. The poor tackling and poor blocking are the result of poor preparation. Quinn has to look seriously at himself and make rather significant changes. I would start will less rah-rah SEAL and Boxing metaphors and more work on fundamentals and clarity of responsibilities. And let's not forget his in-game decisions that lack sober judgement and leadership. I would certainly fire the OL coach. I don't know the man but I se

    But maybe we wouldn’t by losing them? That line of ‘thinking’ that losing is somehow better is so counter intuitive to me.

    Maybe, but what does losing to “teams that have already given up” say about your team? Tanking goes against every fiber of a winning team’s character. It’s a dumb as **** thought to even entertain.

    Yes I can tell from your 17 post that you're a veteran Falcon fan. You expect appreciable long term value from #6 over #8 but the Browns destroyed that model years ago. Their #1 overall pick last year is doing everything he can to avoid another losing season- have you asked "why"? because talent assessment, team needs, team chemistry, and team wins are far more important than who has the higher overall pick.. Only one team gets to lift the Lombardi but every team is accountable to their fan base for their seasons W-L results. 2017 Browns had the #1 pick, Giants had the #2 pick, and

    Edit: still applies this year. I understand your desire for a top-5 pick. It’s sexy and exciting. But ask yourself this: if we lost the past 2 games, what would it say about our team? If we lost to Arizona & Carolina, it would be a problem. The team would be terminal and in need of a purge. Thankfully we won convincingly. That’s what a good team does. It wasn’t perfect or pretty, but we asserted ourselves. I’d rather go into the offseason looking like the team we all assumed we were 6 months ago. It gives us reasonable hope for 2019. If we lost 5 in a row to end the year,

  6. Yeah I was hoping several of the teams picking before us would reach for a quarterback so that some good defensive line options would slide to us.

  8. I agree. I can imagine a room full of special forces members watching that and laughing their ***** off. The first thing that they would do if on a mission with that guy is frag him so he doesn't get one of them KIA.

  10. When I saw it, I wondered if he thought it was "cool". The fact that he set up a camera to record it indicates that he's kind of a big child who is more into fantasy than reality. He wasn't doing anything other than wasting bullets. Hopefully he had fun, in which case it doesn't matter what I think about the exercise.

  12. If we beat Tampa and end up picking 13th in every round we will likely draft not one, not two, but three or more impactful players. There are too many examples to cite. Most recently, see the Atlanta Falcons 2016 draft. Neal, Debo, Hoop, Dre and Swipester all drafted below the 13th slot of their rounds. Every one of em is a starter. Tank on tanker.

    I agree with you 1000%. I am also a PSL owner. And the direction this team is being managed will put us back to the pre VIC days. Having a TOP 5 pick helps on the cap and the FAN base.

    It’s cool. Just wanted to make sure I wasn’t promoting the whole “losing on purpose” mantra other people on these boards were promoting. Quinn definitely has to improve considerably in multiple areas. His game management skills have been atrocious. That being said our Coordinators have been incredibly lacking this season. I understand injuries have played a role in our record this season, however the lack of gameplanning/scheming around our backups was concerning. It would be one thing if I saw improvement but I saw regression in that area. Quinn should get the Smith treatment.

    By winning those games, we may still have the same problems next season .

    Some fans forget that this team is loaded with talent. This year a lot of things went against the team. This team has only a few holes. Some of the fans think the team needs to rebuild which is totally nonsensical for a team that was in Superbowl two years ago and Divisional Playoff last year. The team only needs to add 2-3 pieces to the defense and 2-3 on the offense to fill the voids. I expect the Falcons to draft well again and really add some serious depth to the team.

    Lmao so because I have 17 posts means that I’m not a veteran falcon fan or makes me less of a fan than you? That’s as delusional as your thought process that us having a 7-9 record will do anything for next season other than picking in the teens vs top 5.

    This whole winning going in to the off-season helps with the following season is idiotic nonsense. Football has one of the highest turnovers from year to year for a team. Our team as a foundation might be the same but that's about it. Winning at the end of this season will have no bearing whatsoever how we do next season other than giving DQ some doubt on whether to make some coaching changes in the off-season. I didn't want the falcons to get blown out but i wanted them to play a good game and lose on the last play or drive. Pretty much how our season has played out.

    We were in disarray during the 2nd half of the 2015 season, how did we follow that up? Does anyone have proof that how you finish a season affects how you start and finish the next or are people just making **** up to prove their point? Also seems like people have different take on what tanking is. Some think you want your team to throw the game. But most of us who are supporting "tanking" really just want us to lose. Not for the players or coaching staff to intentionally throw the game.

  21. Tanking for a few spots higher for a pick that could possibly be a generational player is just a pipe dream. Now changing mediocre coordinators for ones that are innovative and to build for a winning future is priceless.

    You can argue losing hurts the team more than lower draft picks as it takes away from the pride and mentality of what it means to be a Falcon. Browns have lost for two decades not because they didn't have high draft picks, but that being a Brown basically implied that your okay with losing. Being a Patriot meant you win games even though you are picking 25+ every year. Every NFL player is a very capable athlete and like most things in life it comes down to your mentality and will to succeed.

  24. Guess you see something different. No worries. From my POV, the foundation of a great team is still intact. Just needs health and a reboot. I for one am glad to see a semblance of the team we all thought we had.

  25. It would say the team is as bad as we thought. Now with them winning pointless games, it gives Quinn a reason to second guess firing the OC and DC. Not to mention player evaluations.

    Trae Young

    The only thing Doncic has on Trae is size. He's not gonna wear down as quick as Trae is. You're just looking at Trae's shooting. That needs time--and that, again, is more the product of his physical stature. But Trae's basketball IQ is second to none of any prospect drafted in the last couple of years, and that includes Doncic and Ben Simmons. He sees the floor that well. As a rookie he's already averaging as many assists per game as LeBron James does, and already has about 10 or so double-double games. He's a crafty dribbler who's already figured out some of the finer nuances of the pro game,

    Doncic is a good player.. smart with good size.. Trae isn’t quite there yet.. needs more time.. but that added pick.. that’s what made it worth it

    He's having a good year as a rookie. Most rooks struggle shooting. His shot will get better. Even the 30 footers. Start hitting those and he will be a problem.
