  1. Turnaround of Falcons Defense Key to 2020 Success 2 weeks ago Screen Shot Courtesy of NFL.com Gamepass The Falcons Defense was simply atrocious through the first half of 2019. They allowed 31.3 points per game, went more than 4 straight games without a sack, generated just 4 turnovers, and couldn’t get off the field on 3rd down. It wasn’t just the numbers that were ugly. Atlanta also didn’t pass the eye test, with defenders regularly blowing coverages and giving up big plays. As a unit, they looked los

  2. Lest never forget Vick came in, didn't learn the playbook, got coddled by Blank and Mora and still went: 38-28-1 with no Oline, no defense, and Crump and Fin as his top two targets Four other starting Falcon QBs went 9-20 on the same six teams Second best ever winning% as a 30+ game Falcon QB starter. If Ryan goes 7-9 this year he'll be first Sold out six straight Domes and put the Falcons back on the national map when Blank needed it most Went to three Pro Bowls in his six years as a Falcon and got his shoes sent to the Hall of Fame Kept plenty NFL DCs up l

  3. https://theathletic.com/1984507/2020/08/09/schultz-thomas-dimitroff-on-the-season-under-performance-jobs-on-the-line/ The Falcons are five weeks away from their season opener against Seattle, assuming there is a season to be played. It will be a pivotal year for coach Dan Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff, who teamed up for a Super Bowl run in 2016 but have followed that with a second-round playoff exit in 2017 and postseason misses the past two seasons. The Falcons went 7-9 last season but had their playoff hopes buried early by a 1-7 start that nearly cost Quinn his

  4. It takes a lot of guts for a head coach to hold his hands up and then transfer play calling duties to someone else midseason, so I give DQ a lot of credit for doing that, BUT... That DQ led defense for first half of the year was atrocious (like historically bad, like Saints 2012 bad). For a guy previously known as a defensive guru, I think DQ somehow managed to get off pretty lightly for that sh*t show.

  6. Let's look at this honestly for a moment. The chances of a college football player falling seriously ill or dying from Covid are pretty remote. But that's not the issue. The issue is that these universities would rather cancel the season and lose hundreds of millions than give the players actual agency over themselves and their career. They could give players the option of opting out of the season and keep their scholarship and eligibility, but they want nothing to do with that because it gives athletes a little bit of power. And that is the biggest threat to the status quo of big time c

  12. I've posted before that tons of people get exposed to Q ideas not realizing they originated from that, and never becoming actual Q followers. There is cross-pollination between Q stuff and your average conservative 24/7 martyrdom. They see something that paints their political college football in-state rival in a bad light and share it without thinking of where it came from.

  14. Stop. This is a blatant lie. There was literally a pandemic response team and response playbook developed by the Obama administration already in place, that Trump himself bragged about breaking up in 2018. People not only predicted something like this happening, they had planned ahead for it so coordination would be streamlined... and Trump bragged about shutting it down. There is video of him saying this. Just like there is video of Trump saying (in the White House, surrounded by people) that law enforcement should take peoples guns away and ask questions later. The truth matters.

  27. The job Henderson did coaching the secondary was quite possibly the worst coaching in NFL history. I blame Quinn for not replacing him after Week 3. Maybe I’m blind, but Quinn is still a gifted coach. Being the Head Coach & Defensive Coordinator is nearly impossible. The last two coaches to try, Quinn & Belichick, both gave up play calling mid-season. It’s simply too much to be the actual DC and HC. For Quinn’s part, he pretty much gave up calling the defense in the Arizona game, Week 6. He seriously crapped the bed against Houston, but the first 4 weeks we allowed just

  28. I thought this was the most interesting answer, particularly the bit in bold... "There are certain people here, and there are certain people not here anymore, and it all folds into what I believe will be an all-around better football team and a full package. Sounds like there were some personnel TD was keen to move on from this year (I wonder who he is specifically referring to?) and that we'll be a better team because of it 🤔

  30. Pretty aggressive and pointed questions. I really wish he asked about the following topics with the same passion: • Why doesn’t Senat play; • Why was Koetter brought back to run Shanny’s offense; • Why did we let LaFleur, McDaniel, LaFleur & Scangarello leave FB if we wanted to keep the 2016 offensive system • Why wasn’t Henderson fired early last year and why is Morgan still coaching our OL

  31. Never worry about the salary cap with the Falcons. Just ask a couple cap board experts and they’ll tell you every time TD has got this. The salary cap is imagery. I finally accepted the fact that it doesn’t matter...it’s just a bunch of BS. Just go sign who you need....

  35. To secure the asset and not have to worry about being outbid. But you are exactly right, and why this was refreshing to see. You get the Troffed crowd who refuse to admit he makes any good moves or contracts and this is just another in a long line of solid decisions for him. He has given out some bad contracts for sure, but no GM is gonna be 100%. More importantly, he didn't take on that contract inherited from the Rams...

  39. It's not just the Q people, on my feed it's basically every conservative now using that hash tag. They so want to believe anything that can help their side and hurt the "liberal elite" that they now have plugged the Qanon needle directly into their veins. And it's going to get a lot worse between now and November. They are going to try to paint Democrats as the party of pedophiles.

    Crump was the man...one of my favorite falcons from that 2002-2006 era. He wasnt a game wrecker, but seemed to have less trouble getting meaningful YAC than Hoop. Hooper had 1 baller YAC game, against the Bears a few years ago when he looked unstoppable in the open field. Crump in his 7 seasons here combined had 13.3 yards/reception. Hoop averaged 10.5 Crump had 27 games of 3+ receptions as a Falcon where he averaged over 13 yards/catch. Hoop.....5 ----------------------------- Its also how we used Hoop vs Crump....Crump was often down the seem or on deep cu
