  1. 1) You draft a QB when your current QB is bad...ours isn’t. 2) You draft a QB when your QB is ending his career...ours isn’t. 3) You draft a QB so you can take advantage of the rookie wage scale and save a ton of money for five years and build around him...we are still paying Ryan so that isn’t a thing, and we have no money to surround that person with talent. 4) The flawed logic of “we won’t be drafting this high in a long time we we have to take our QB of the future”. This is wrong for two reasons. QBs taken in the top five have been less successful then the rest of the fist

  2. First of all, as a Falcons fan since 1966 and having suffered through the Rankin Smith ownership tenure, I am forever grateful to Arthur Blank for what he has done for this city and this franchise. He makes mistakes like we all do but he is still one of the very best owners, not just in the NFL, but in all of pro sports. Mr Blank does one thing exceptionally well. When he decides he wants someone in his organization, he does whatever has to be done and gets the person he wants. He is not cheap. You never hear him complain publicly about money or having to pay big contracts even if those

  4. Sooo.. if you want to know about our new O-line coach's philosophy, check this out. He is giving a clinic on the wide zone scheme, which is what Coach Smith ran in TN. Former NFL lineman who has been coaching O-lines for almost 15+ years. This could be a great hire!

  5. This is not intended to be a final bash Dirk post, although there will be some I'm sure. This is more to show different tendencies over their two years on their respective teams. My goal with this is to try to predict what kind of performance we can expect from our offense next year. I'm also not going to compare basic stats because that is easy info to find and has likely already been done. First, Let's Compare Personnel. I will use PFF Grades to keep this simple as the base of "who is better or worse", I know it isn't the end all be all but very few here I'm sure have watched a to

  7. To me, this is all pretty simple. Of the problems we have -- HC vacancy, GM vacancy, aging QB, losing team, lack of playmakers on defense, etc. -- the HC hire is the most important piece of the puzzle by a mile. I get the arguments otherwise -- you have the number 4 overall pick and you take your franchise QB when you can. But the truth is, those guys rarely win Super Bowls. Matt Ryan has been to one. He lost. Cam Newton went to one. He also lost. Jared Goff went to one. He lost. Carson Wentz went to one and his 2nd backup won it for him. That is not at all to say you can't win with

  10. GM/COACHING Rick Smith is hired as the teams new GM. Arthur Smith is hired as HC and essentially our OC. I’d expect him to bring someone with him from Tennessee that he is comfortable with. I could see him bringing his Quality control guy currently Chandler Henley and promoting him to OC. Arthur makes it clear he can get the best out of Matt Ryan and Julio Jones in his offense. On the defensive side, Arthur brings and promotes Shane Bowen to DC who is the current Titans LBs coach and has been calling the defensive plays for them this year. Currently the Titans run a 3-4 Defe

  11. I'm just going to go ahead and say it. If a prospective HC is reading PFT or any other media outlet to determine whether they want to accept this job, I don't want them here anyway.

  15. Yes, I’m admitting it. He’s the best ever. And most of you who know me know I’ve been a big Brady detractor his whole career. But, I want to point something out here. I’ve had countless arguments and discussions with people over the years about how defense is more important than weapons for a QB. People have told me that Brady wins with no weapons and Peyton had tons of weapons and couldn’t pull through. Same argument applies to Ryan. Ryan’s been “blessed with weapons” and can’t win the big one is the narrative. In this game we just watched, Brady was 13/22 for 202 yards and 2 t

  16. .....and it's really simple. The team should, and I think the team will, rank the players available there. I do not think they will take QB off the board, but I also do not think they will or should insist we must get a QB at 4 no matter what. So the truth is that nobody should be surprised if someone like Fields falls to us and we take him, and nobody should be surprised if we're down to the 3rd or 4th QB and we don't, and nobody should be surprised if Fields falls to us and we pass. The reason for all this is simple. The team's math is not based on fans wish casting Matt Ryan out of

  17. I love it. I would have been fine with Bieniemy doing it too, though. I love it mainly because we won't have too many growing pains if the OC gets a head coaching job down the road. Continuity on offense has been terrible since Ryan got here.

  18. I would be happy if we got him. I would also be happy, and perhaps happier, if we traded that pick to somebody out of our division and preferably out of our conference for a boat load of picks.

  22. If it’s BPA, Penei, Chase, Smith, and Parsons are all guys that arguably better players than Fields and/or Wilson. Saying he likes to draft BPA does not mean we are for sure taking a QB by any means.

  25. Absolutely. Quick turnarounds happen all the time, it is not rare at all in today's NFL. One draft class alone can move mountains. We aren't that far off imo, and I think dumping Dirk while bringing in a competent WCO OC/HC will get this offense rolling in a short time which will have an immediate and huge impact. A lot will depend on the cap situation though...

  26. Just for fun Watson and Wilson have been sacked more than Ryan this year. Watson is the second most sacked and Wentz is #1. Mobile doesn’t make you sack proof. Morons.

  28. Rewind: We hired Dan Quinn from Seattle. We immediately started our plug-n-play trying to create Seattle 2.0. Who is playing the Cam Chancellor role....blah...blah...blah. Instead of letting the guy just implement his system and form our own identity. Present day: We hire Arthur Smith. Before the ink can dry on the contract here we go again. We don't have a Derek Henry. Well, guess what? No team does. This new guy has a clean slate. Let's just see what he creates. He's under enough pressure as it is.

  29. He runs it exactly like the Shanahans drew it up. Everything works off the wide zone blocking scheme in the run game. From that, he dials up play action and bootlegs to keep defenses off balance, and he incorporates every member of that offense into it. Remember when we set an NFL record when Matt threw TDs to 13 different players in 2016? Well, the Titans threw TDs to 10 different players in 2020. They had one 1000 yard receiver and another within 16 yards of 1000, plus a 2000 yard rusher. They averaged 30 PPG. He had 2 WRs and a TE with rushing carries this season, and 4 RBs and a FB
