  1. One thing's for sure: if there's a trial Julio will have to sit it out due to "injury".

  4. The national sports media were convinced Ryan was over the hill and AS and TF had no choice but to take their first pick as leaders of the franchise, a rare top-five draft pick at that, and grab a future franchise signal caller. That was the expected move, and perfectly reasonable, almost inevitable it seemed in the weeks before the draft. The talk wasn't about whether AS and TF would take a QB, but which one did they want and would that player still be available at #4? Props to AS and TF for being secure enough in themselves and their ability to succeed immediately by staying with Ryan rather than drafting his replacement at #4, thereby pushing all realistic expectations for a Falcons resurgence to 2023 at the earliest. They realized whatever problems this team has, Quarterback wasn't one of them. The core strength and unquestioned leader of the team's offense is Mattie Ice. As we all know they took a perfect complement to Ryan and the offense at #4 with Kyle Pitts. Hope Matt has a great season to shut up the pundits and the Ryan-hating fans. It would vindicate Smith's and Fontenot's decision to stick with Ryan for the foreseeable future and use that one-and-only top-five pick to really get this offense back into high gear, closer to 2016 than anything we've seen since. Thanks to the choice to stay with Ice, I firmly believe we won't be waiting around for 2023 to see this team return to prominence.

  9. I don’t mean to be blunt, but this a problem that should’ve been nipped in the bud. There is a chronic of shady businesses in that industry. The seed money from Roddy and Julio probably stems from their careers in the NFL, which could create a nexus to the league further down the pipe.

  10. Could run alot of plays with Patterson, Davis, Pitts, Ridley, and Hurst; all out of the same formation. Similar to what we did in 2016. Would be very difficult to know where the ball is going and would set up some mean play action. I expect we will see alot of this.

  11. Yeah unless Javian hawkins is a complete bust in training camp he is making this team. You don’t leave an explosive player like that on practice squad to get picked off. Either ollison or Huntley isn’t making the team and my guess is Huntley.

  13. Matt Ryan makes questionable decisions sometimes and I really think that’s a byproduct of the falcons not protecting him throughout his career. arthur smith is an offensive line guy, so hopefully he can get Matt to trust that he won’t be smacked up 50 times a season

    Trade Rumors

    If the Braves had the best offer she should take it. Duvall isn't a long-term piece for either team and will be gone long before Miami is ready for contention. That said, the Braves should aim higher than Duvall. Or sell.

  17. yeah, absolutely STOOPID for Falcons to try and go for Chandler Jones. You summarized it well - Chandler is on his "out years" just like Julio and so he and his agent want to get one last large payday based on past performance. NO ONE believes Falcons are anything other than a .500 team or fringe playoff team(at best) in 2021 - with or without Chandler Jones. Terry Fontenot is trying to build something that will last - that doesn't include moves like this one.

  18. If there’s a guy that I’d love to see shock the league and be an impact rookie, it’s Ogundeji. He has tons of natural tools, and production from him in the pass rush would help us out a lot.

  19. I’ll tell ya what man. When people seriously attempt to throw out the bull crud about MR & talk about using CR as trade bait, it proves out 100% that this board has people posting who know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about football. The ONLY other possible option with regard to these clowns is that they are children with deep rooted personal issues who exist only to troll people. It’s hard for me to imagine just how barren one’s life must be to cause this sort of acting out lol.

  22. The Atlanta Falcons opened training camp on July 26 at the team's practice facility in Flowery Branch, Georgia. The Falcons finished the 2020 season 4-12, last in the NFC South. They fired head coach Dan Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff in the middle of last season and hired first-time head coach Arthur Smith and first-time general manager Terry Fontenot. Atlanta returns 15 starters on offense and defense from last year's team. Here's a pre-camp 53-man roster projection. QUARTERBACK (2): Matt Ryan, AJ McCarron This is pretty simple. Ryan is the clear starter -- although we'll see what happens after the 2021 season. The Falcons signed McCarron to be the backup and unless Feleipe Franks surprises in training camp, he's likely ticketed for the practice squad. RUNNING BACK (4): Mike Davis, Cordarrelle Patterson, Qadree Ollison, Caleb Huntley This is a group with a lot of questions. Davis is the likely No. 1 here, but he never has had more than 165 carries in a season. Patterson can be used anywhere, and Ollison has talent. Considering the roster and the rotation, Huntley ends up as a surprise in training camp and makes the team, but this is a spot where a veteran addition could make sense. FULLBACK (1): Keith Smith Arthur Smith likes to run the ball. We saw that in Tennessee. With the Titans, Smith used Khari Blasingame as his guy. Keith Smith should fill that role, unless they decide to use a tight end in a hybrid situation. WIDE RECEIVER (6): Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage, Olamide Zaccheaus, Tajae Sharpe, Chris Rowland, Frank Darby Beyond Ridley and Gage this is a mystery position and will be sorted in training camp. It might be heavy on receivers -- the Falcons could easily go with five -- but it's also a space for growth. Like running back, if a veteran is brought in it could shake up the room, but Zaccheaus is an intriguing talent who had a role in 2020. Sharpe is a veteran who is familiar with Smith and his system. Darby is a draft pick with explosive downfield ability. Keeping Rowland over Christian Blake is a versatility play but that'll be sorted in training camp. A bottom-of-the-roster name to watch could be rookie Austin Trammell, perhaps on the practice squad. TIGHT END (3): Kyle Pitts, Hayden Hurst, Lee Smith This feels pretty set. Pitts and Hurst are the team's top two tight ends, and Arthur Smith has talked about a specific role for Lee Smith a lot. That usually bodes well for a player, plus the Falcons traded for him in March. Atlanta could go with four tight ends here if it chooses to move away from a fullback or lighter at wide receiver. OFFENSIVE LINE (8): Jake Matthews, Chris Lindstrom, Matt Hennessy, Josh Andrews, Kaleb McGary, Jalen Mayfield, Drew Dalman, Matt Gono This feels like on the offensive line, but the versatility of Mayfield, Dalman and Gono give Atlanta some flexibility here. Easy to see a way a veteran interior lineman such as Willie Beavers, Willie Wright, William Sweet or Sam Jones works his way onto the team or becomes a priority practice squad player. Who would win a potential ninth job would be determined in training camp. DEFENSIVE LINE (7): Grady Jarrett, John Cominsky, Marlon Davidson, Deadrin Senat, Tyeler Davison, Ta'Quon Graham, Jonathan Bullard This feels pretty locked in as a unit. Jarrett is one of the NFL's best interior defensive linemen; Davison was a starter last year. Davidson has a bunch of potential, and Cominsky and Senat provide depth. Graham is a versatile rookie who can play across the line. Bullard could push for a spot here. John Atkins, signed after the last OTA, has some playing experience as well. LINEBACKER (8): Deion Jones, Foyesade Oluokun, Mykal Walker, Brandon Copeland, Steven Means, Dante Fowler Jr., Jacob Tuioti-Mariner, Adetokunbo Ogundeji The edge rushers are included in here instead of with the defensive line, which is why it is so deep in numbers. Between the line and linebackers, things could flip -- both in numbers kept and who is there. Unless an undrafted rookie surprisingly wins a job, the inside linebacker group of Jones, Oloukun, Walker and Copeland feels fairly solid, and there's depth from the outside linebackers. The question is how the production will be. Like running back and receiver, this feels like a spot Atlanta could add. CORNERBACK (6): A.J. Terrell, Fabian Moreau, Isaiah Oliver, Darren Hall, Kendall Sheffield, Avery Williams Terrell and Moreau seem like they are certainties as Moreau worked as a starter through a lot of the open-to-the-media practices in the spring. Oliver can play inside or outside and started 12 games last year. Hall and Williams are draft picks with versatility, and Williams could end up as a returner as well. Sheffield started nine games in 2020. SAFETY (5): Erik Harris, Duron Harmon, Richie Grant, Jaylinn Hawkins, T.J. Green This is a surprisingly deep group. Harris and Harmon are veterans from other teams. Grant, the team's second-round pick, is the future at the position. Hawkins was the team's fourth-round pick last year. At age 23, Grant and Hawkins could be the future. SPECIALISTS (3): Younghoe Koo, Sterling Hofrichter, Josh Harris Koo and Harris should be on the team. Koo might be as much of a lock as Matt Ryan. Hofrichter could see some competition in camp from Dom Maggio, but for now we go with the incumbent.

  23. the right jumps at any and every opportunity to talk **** about a famous non-white person, especially if it's about some imagined personal failing. they can't pass up the chance to feel personally superior to a non-white person that society suggests is more successful or talented than them.

  24. I think he could be moved around the defense and spend a decent amount of time rushing the passer. He did everything from covering, playing the run, and rushing the QB in college so we may see him all over the place this season. Walker now at 6'3 240ish is a pretty big LB.

    Honest Question

    Before this ends up like the other thread, my advice is to make a phone call before the game and get real info from the venue and keep an eye on the news. Posters have proven they can't discuss the topic without it getting out of hand unfortunately

  32. I think he will have a bigger impact than Neal because he is a ball hawk. This puts fear in QBs, causes hesitation when you have a talented student of the game that knows how to read plays in front of him in outfield running around. I think he will be the best safety we’ve had in years once he finds his footing. I can hardly believe he was still there in second where we picked.

  37. As a reminder, some pundits saw Spriggs as a late 1st Rounder. His playing strength was questioned, but even with long arms he put up 31 Bench presses so he ain't weak. His draft profile: Athletic frame with long arms Comes out of his stance with tremendous quickness and has elite lateral movement Can get to extremely difficult backside cutoff blocks Knee bender As a move blocker, lands squarely in the strike zone and rolls hips and feet under him to to wash down defender or secure a down-block Shows good patience in space with ability to become solid combination blocker in zone scheme Looks to finish Able to adjust his assignments on the fly Is active with his hands in pass pro Will throw jabs with both hands rather than offering them up for defensive ends to swat Has tools to substantially slow pass rushers when timing his punch Durable, four­-year starter
