    I will continue to access the players as I've always done. And take pictures. However I will do videos at the end of the camp. So if there is any questions you like me to ask, I'll ask. But try to ask questions to players who are not ryan and julio. It's a swarm around them. For instance of questions, "Quinn or Dimitroff. Why do you say a failure last year was depth. Cut players to save money. Yet show interest in signing a banlck up QB and over pay him, cough cough Schaub? Why not turn him into a qb coach if he's here because ryan likes him? Shouldn't we be focused on signing depth for players who rotate, prone to injury, or a position that's more at risk of an injury? " ..... i'll bump this thread as TC gets closer.

    Pretty Awesome! We got a winner, folks! This is amazing for a first year receiver! Shout out to Taylor Gabriel too - hated to see him leave - awesome player! Article here An impressive stat for an impressive rookie. By Adnan Ikic@SayWhichWay Feb 15, 2019, 8:00am EST SHARE Photo by Julio Aguilar/Getty Images Calvin Ridley had no business falling to pick No. 26 in the NFL draft last year. He essentially fell into Atlanta’s lap because of draft talk fatigue and general managers talking themselves out of love with the best wide receiver in the class, and he’s proven it. Ridley came into his first NFL season as the most polished rookie wide receiver in his class, and he was expected to make an impact right away. His crisp route running was on display all year, and it was even better than I thought it was. RotoUnderworld, which is powered by NexGen Stats, highlighted just how effective Ridley was at getting himself open for quarterback Matt Ryan: View image on Twitter In addition to creating the most separation among all qualified WRs, Ridley was also sixth among all players in the NFL in QB rating when targeted. Matt Ryan had a staggering 129.0 QB rating when throwing the ball in Calvin Ridley’s direction this season — the highest mark on the team. Ridley finished the season leading all rookies in receiving yards with 821 and receiving touchdowns with 10. His 64 total receptions were second among all rookies, behind only Offensive Rookie of the Year Saquon Barkley. Ridley finished third among all Falcons in receiving yards, and he led the team in receiving touchdowns. The best is yet to come, as Ridley is expected to take up an even greater role in the team’s passing offense next season.

    For the lack of production from the rest of the D-Line, he was outstanding. Gets doubled a lot. Worth every penny of 15 mil a year. Don't overthink it, just do it Falcons.

    One of the most explosive weapons on the team and your saying you won't miss him? Super Bowl TD's , Huge play off runs, created big plays from the back field and receiving. Yeah, we are going to miss him a lot

    Well... guess TDs obsession with drafting CBs can continue. So much for building the lines early, Falcons gonna falcon and take a guard or two in the 5th round and hope it works.

    I haven't been on here too much lately so I apologize if this was already posted, but I have my DVR set to record anything with the tag "Atlanta Falcons" and by my surprise Damontae Kazee did an interview on FS1 about the season and his life. A decent interview and some insight into him on and off the football field as well as growing up. If you can find it, then be sure to check it out. Here's a snippet I found on Youtube below. Again if already known, then please delete

    I looked through the first few pages, but didn't see this posted. Here is the link to an article on the Falcoholics web site: Matt Ryan 2018 Matt Ryan’s 2018 was one of his greatest years, and it was spent under siege Ryan got hit a lot. Was it out of line with career norms? By Dave Choate Feb 10, 2019, 8:00am EST SHARE Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty Images I set out, with this article, to see how Matt Ryan’s 2018 performance stacked up against the rest of his career when you consider the number of sacks and hits he took. I was expecting to see that Ryan, like most quarterbacks, fares best when he’s not getting knocked around by defenses, and that 2018 would prove to be the best year of his career when he was genuinely under siege. A true outlier, in other words. I sort of found that, but I also found that Ryan’s career doesn’t quite follow the neat and tidy narrative. The initial takeaway from this chart is going to be an odd one, one that sort of upends everything the Falcons keep telling us about how important it is to protect Matt Ryan. But that is, quite naturally, not the story we should actually take away from this, so go ahead and review it and let’s come on back. Please note that these numbers are, as far as I am aware, only available back to 2009. 2018: 42 sacks (13th), 102 QB hits (6th) 2017: 24 sacks (27th), 87 QB hits (15th) 2016: 37 sacks (11th), 106 QB hits (6th) 2015: 32 sacks (23rd), 89 QB hits (17th) 2014: 31 sacks (19th), 89 QB hits (13th) 2013: 44 sacks (10th), 100 QB hits (5th) 2012: 28 sacks (25th), 83 QB hits (8th) 2011: 26 sacks (27th), 84 QB hits (7th) 2010: 23 sacks (30th), 69 QB hits (21st) 2009: 27 sacks (25th), 67 QB hits (21st) In light of this, Matt Ryan has had his three best seasons when the Falcons have allowed somewhere in the top ten most quarterback hits in a given season, and a pair of lesser seasons (a still very good 2011 and um 2013) when facing the same. Ryan has been impressively durable all these years taking a huge number of hits and, especially over the last several years, getting sacked quite often. But does that mean he doesn’t need quality protection to thrive? Sort of. The 2016 team was hellbent on making big plays happen, which meant more time in the pocket for Ryan and a greater strain on a very capable offensive line. Ryan took more hits and sacks that year—the highest total in his entire career—because the offense wanted him to hang in there until a killer play materialized. They didn’t always, but they did often enough that the Falcons enjoyed the best offensive season in franchise history, one with a terrific rushing attack to balance things out. The story was similar in 2012, when the offensive line was stone solid and Ryan was trying to push the ball downfield, though he did not have the advantage of a compelling ground game this year. Otherwise, things went as you’d expect. Ryan was quite good in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2017 (even if the stats didn’t show it) when he was pretty well-protected, and in those early years the Falcons weren’t quite so gung-ho about going downfield and largely had a bruising rushing attack to help out. The real outlier on this list, then, still is 2018, when Ryan’s line was crumbling around him, he took the second-highest number of hits and sacks of his career, and he still put together a campaign that would credibly have been MVP-worthy if not for the team’s poor record and the season Patrick Mahomes put together. The upshot of this is that Ryan is still very good, very durable, and very capable of making plays under duress, which sets the Falcons’ offense up quite well for years to come. But the Falcons would not have been able to pull off their 2016 success without an offensive line that gave them the time to unwind some elaborate machinations and get receiving options into positions for big plays, and with Dirk Koetter coming back on board, it would be a mistake to suggest that Ryan’s relative success in 2018 would be repeatable with poor blocking in front of him again.

    I'm all for bringing him back, just not at the price he had been previous getting. Schaub been around forever, so he has valuable insights for Matt in regards to film and preparation. He does a lot more than just hold a clipboard. That said...not at that 4.5-5m price tag.

    Falcons re-signed LB Bruce Carter to a one-year contract. Carter tallied five special teams tackles and played 78 defensive snaps for Atlanta last year. A failed former second-round pick of the Cowboys, Carter has spent time with four NFL teams. He turns 31 later this month.

    I'm not sure about TATF Banning Procedures and Protocol. Do they PM you and let you know before they pull the plug on your account? if you're on TATF when they ban you, does your screen go black or flash BANNED BANNED BANNED in big red letters? Does a warning siren go off? Does a cold, smarmy electronic voice come on and say, "You're done, bro. Cya." Just curious.

    Baller. I love the kid. He's one of those guys that truly just loves football and has that confidence to ball out every Sunday. I can't wait to see what DQ does with this secondary.

    Yes, the OL couldn't handle those fronts to a degree, but this is what I've been saying is the biggest issue with Tevin. He can't create. He only gets you what the OL blocks for. When sledding gets tough, Tevin can't create yardage to compensate. The running game isn't solely blocking or running, it's a give and take. If the OL is blowing open massive holes, FFS70 can run through them. If they aren't, having a RB who can make up for that by making a man or two miss is essential. That's why losing Freeman hurt this offense drastically. That's why this makes sense as well: "In two fewer games outside of the 6 mentioned, Ito Smith outcarried Tevin Coleman inside opponents territory by a factor of close to 2:1 (despite Coleman’s 6.7 YPC v Smith’s 3.9)." Coleman is a space runner. Get him to space and he's gone. Muddy the blocking and his poor vision and long stride are magnified. Remember when Turner got slower and teams would force him to stop his feet in the backfield and it was immediately a dead play? That's Coleman. He has no stop start ability and very little cut back ability, hence why tosses were called so much. But good run defenses set strong edges and force those runs inside, where they die. Fix the OL, but we also need to add a RB who is physical but can create yardage when it's not necessarily blocked flawlessly. I'm willing to sacrifice Tevin's long speed for a creative back. Look at James White for example. He's not great, but he consistently gets what's blocked and creates when it's not been blocked.

    This is why I was never worried about DQ. He sees his flaws and fixes them with a vengeance if he has the opportunity. He doesn't just sit on his hands. He lost some coaching talent after that SB run and thought he replaced it. He didn't but there is no question right now the Falcons have some of the most experienced coaches in the league and that should pay heavy dividends during the season. And it should also help weather getting coaches poached if that happens again.

    1:23 AM ET Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer ATLANTA -- Atlanta Falcons linebacker Deion Jones couldn't help but notice the flattering words Pro Football Hall of Famer Brian Urlacher used to describe his game. Instead of just marveling over Urlacher's high praise, Jones decided to express his appreciation. He reached out to Urlacher personally via social media. "I reached out to him, and we just kind of exchanged numbers and got to talking a little bit," Jones said. "Just growing up watching him play, it was kind of dope what he said. ... I just thanked him for what he said. It meant a lot coming from him." In November, before Jones returned from early-season foot surgery, Urlacher called Jones a "bad m-----f-----" and a "star" who is the fastest middle linebacker in the game and can cover anybody. Urlacher didn't expect to hear from Jones but appreciated connecting with the 24-year-old, who played in the 2018 Pro Bowl. "It makes me feel good because I've been out of the game for a while," Urlacher said. "It's nice of guys to actually want to even pick my brain a little bit. I don't think I really gave him too much advice. I just said, 'I'm a big fan of yours and whatever you ever need, just give me a holler.' He's such a nice kid." Jones led the Falcons in tackles during the 2016 and 2017 seasons, posting 106 and 138 tackles, respectively. He had 53 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble, a sack and six passes defensed last season despite missing 10 games after breaking his foot. Urlacher, who has established a bond with Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner over the years and made a connection with Dallas Cowboys rookie linebacker Leighton Vander Esch at the Pro Bowl, said his advice to Jones or any young linebacker is rather simple. "The key is just to keep getting better," Urlacher said. "You can't help staying healthy or not, but you can find ways to get better. Yes, it's hard when you get to a certain level to find those ways, but you always have stuff you can improve on." For Jones, listed as 222 pounds, the Falcons would like to see him gain some more weight without compromising his blazing speed. Jones is the central figure of the defense because of his coverage skills and ability to cover up mistakes by others with his speed. He can put a hit on a runner, too, despite being smaller than the other linebackers surrounding him. The Falcons hope to make significant strides on defense with coach Dan Quinn taking over as the defensive coordinator after firing Marquand Manuel. The defense already experienced a minor facelift with starting cornerback Robert Alford and defensive end Brooks Reed being released. Signing defensive tackle Grady Jarrett to a long-term extension is the team's main priority, and the Falcons expect to have Pro Bowl strong safety Keanu Neal (ACL) and free safety Ricardo Allen (Achilles) back in 2019 from their season-ending injuries. So, what is Jones looking forward to the most? "Just to get back on track, getting back to the ball we've been playing," Jones said. "Get back with my boys and playing -- that's it." http://www.espn.com/blog/atlanta-falcons/post/_/id/33975/falcons-deion-jones-makes-a-connection-with-hall-of-famer-brian-urlacher
