  2. So much for all the pundits and the parrots in here claiming Atlanta was not in the running for the top tier coaching/GM candidates, eh?

  6. Shanahan certainly disputes that notion. The idea is to be committed to running the ball, not necessarily good at it. Committing to run plays means the linebackers can't just sit back. The safeties can't just sink deep. It keeps both on the balls of their feet and makes them hesitate, which of course opens up both the run and the pass. I think it's nonsense. You commit to running the football and you do it win lose or draw. And you design your offense around the blocking and spacing assignments in the run game. Shanahan does it. La Fleur does it. Stefanski does it. The elder Sha

    The case for THE QB.

    Oh good, another draft a QB thread. I look forward to 500 more of these over the next three months.

  12. By all indications both hires were impressed with the franchise stability and management commitment. Then throw in our top notch facilities, and its almost a no Brainer. The whole cap thing was overblown. We got this. Welcome aboard Terry and Arthur. FONTED.

  13. Just hear me out everyone. Would you trade for a crappy QB just because I don't like Matt Ryan. I know it sounds crazy but imagine this. The Falcons get a new QB and some draft picks that probably won't work out, but at least we get rid of the franchise's greatest player. Who's in?

    Personally, contrary to what peeps in here were projecting just a week or so ago.... I think Ryan and Julio were a big reason Smith took this job over others out there.

  21. Gurley's signing was literally for one reason, to put Ga Homer's in the dome. Then covid hit, wiping out that thought. He was busted prior to coming here.

  24. Keep in mind there numerous people and groups that would have to sign off on this for it to happen. The NFL had to make many concessions in order for the season to occur. Without knowing all the backdoor conversations, it's hard for me to place blame on any one group or one person.

  26. Sean Payton deserves so much more credit than he gets. And I absolutely despise his sorry, dirty ***. Brees worked that system his entire career to perfection & their org put the perfect pieces together to protect him & have quick release targets while fielding good defenses for the most part. Just like Tom Brady & BB. I have no doubt in my mind that MR would be top 3 with that sort of consistent support every year.

    I am in favor of keeping Matt and Julio another year, but this is a business. A winning product is what the fans truly want. Emotions aside.

  29. Let's get some stuff out of the way first. This boils down to two players. Zach Wilson and Justin Fields. If both are gone, then plan C is a trade back. Plan D, take the offensive lineman. I'm okay with both of those approaches. "You dont sit a top 5 pick". Maybe you do this time. Let a rookie QB sit and learn, from our best, and surround him with talent with all our picks this year, FA next year, and one more draft. Before he even takes the field, everything becomes focused on his success. Build the team while he watches and learns. Matt's jersey is going in the rafters no mat

  31. Something I was thinking about this year, was how much of the running game garbo was really Koetter's fault, i.e., he just hates running the ball and/or can't scheme it effectively. What made this conflicting for me, is that I kept reading that Koetter was basically told to run outside zone...forcing an ex-OC's scheme on the new one seems an awful idea to begin with, but that's a different conversation. That said, if we were supposed to run outside zone, why was so much of it between the tackles? I feel like the FA signing of Gurley hamstrung this situation...I feel like for what flaws Ko

  33. There were other backs on the roster that could run outside zone so I don’t buy that excuse. Koetter was a below average OC.

  35. If we get enough picks and we keep his as our backup, I’m good with it. If we do this with the intention of him being our future starter I’m not. Not sure why they would want to dump a guy making as little as he is, gonna be very cheap the next two years.

  37. And this may be a draft that puts the Falcons in a strong bargaining position to do just that - if 2 of the 3 QBs (Lawrence/Fields/Wilson) have been picked, QB-hungry teams may feel they have to trade into the 4th spot to avoid missing their chance. Wouldn't surprise me to hear some talk out Falcons camp about them being open to selecting a QB, to help grease the wheels.

  42. I don't know that it will. If we take a QB, then I'm assuming the owner is going to be patient and understand Rome is not built in a day. Taking a QB is not a "win now" move. The only people who think it is are those who blame Matt Ryan for everything that goes wrong with this team. And those people are stupid.
