  1. Well I'm a grandfather. I came on this board when she was a toddler, she made me a grandpa this year. I'm excited.

  2. First off, know this much - I get you. At least on a surface level, it looks like we traded Free, a guy who a lot of TATF liked, for a guy with similar injury issues, a guy who had a down year, and we did it with money that could've been dedicated to the defense. But let me point out a few things that have me high as Khalifa on this Gurley signing. 1) Contract conditional on physical: Gurley's deal with us is conditional on him passing a physical, which means if his knee is really as bad as everyone's making it out to be, he won't count a penny against our cap. Plain and simple. 2) L

    Pray For Gritz

    Everyone please say a small prayer for @GhostofGritz. I'm not gonna post the details on here, he's welcome to if he wishes. But let's just remember him and his family right now as they deal with a family tradegy. I know we all get on each other's nerves at times on here and we last out sometimes but at the end of the day we're one big family and we all lift each other up in times of hardship. I've experienced it and I've seen it happen with others on here. Gritz, we're praying for you brother!!

  5. 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

  6. Matt Ryan - Let's get this out of the way first - I want Ryan next year, and I think he's a good quarterback. That being said, he was not very good this year. This was easily his worst year since 2015. He missed a lot of reads, he missed a lot of throws, and he was just generally "off," mostly early on, but also later, he just cleaned up the interceptions comparatively. I was a big DK hater before going back and rewatching games while keying in, but after...Ryan and Freeman were the biggest issues by far. Ryan for missing throws, Freeman for missing holes. If they're less off and making the mo

  8. Since it's completely dead here I figured I would revisit this thread I made 5 years ago. There have been more people join the board and new lurkers. Come in and tell everyone about yourself. Here's the link to the original thread below if you want to take time and revisit https://boards.atlantafalcons.com/topic/4023102-meet-the-poster/ And please no one be weirdos and use other people's photos from that thread or this thread if someone chooses to post. That very thing happened in that thread. But here's an update of my family. And it was hot that day at Disney. kma

  11. We cant run the ball, Ryan has no "get out of jail free" receiver, we only get a good pass rush when we blitz, the secondary is weak. It doesnt look like we have a QB problem, he got us a lead. The run game and defense holds the lead. The defense need the run game and overall clock management. I dont think we have clock management plays.

  15. Good afternoon beautiful people. It's been too long. I've been meaning to do one of these for the longest buuttt... you know, 2020 and all. But the Falcons left me in a good mood Sunday so here we go. Let me just start off by saying, the first five games or so -- and I don't want to be too hyperbolic about this, but this was some of the sh**iest defense I have ever seen in my life. I don't wanna say they were the worst defense I had ever seen, but I can't think of too many worse off-hand. And the defensive play calling (whoever was doing it) was atrocious. It was a total repeat of l

  16. *DISCLAIMER: religious post* As most know, I've been one of the residential Vic Beasley homers since he was drafted. I badly wanted him prior to the draft, and purchased his jersey from NFLShop at 9 AM the following morning of the draft. Even though I loved Vic's athletic abilities and college production, I was admittedly blinded by Vic Beasley the person. A good friend of mine who was a student at Clemson had told me stories about Vic's ability to communicate with everyone he met and a persistent attitude when it came to sharing his faith. This is something that has continued into Vic's

    Tremendous Off Season

    There are a lot of TD haters on this board, but honestly, I don't understand that logic. This offseason has been tremendous. Look at the improvement in personnel. We have upgraded several positions: Trufant is replaced by Terrell (a better press CB). Freeman is replaced by Gurley. Beasley is replaced by Fowler. Hooper is replaced by Hurst. Davison is replaced by Davidson (a better pass rusher) The Falcons have also acquired depth behind Mack and Neal. Seriously, this has been a very successful offseason.

  21. A first, I was like “meh”. He’s a good back up. I was underwhelmed by his highlights and a few other loose objects here and there. While sitting here recovering, I was on the phone with a buddy of mine and he knows way more than I ever will. He’s telling me we got one of those sleepers. Was a WR coming out of college Runs a sub 4.5 (colleges have field day) Is very physical, hits like Neal Is a film guy, loves the game and loves to study His best trait is his football IQ, second best trait is his incredible range. Possibly top five in this draft as far as range, lik

  22. I shouldn’t do this, but it seems only those that know more about me and can actually read know this. There is a going, thread derailing, myth that I’m super negative. No, I have very high standards in everything I am and do. It’s my way. No one has to like it, but if we’re friends, it’s likely to irk but we’re still cool. I don’t dislike ANYONE on our offense. I am and will always be so-so on Matt Ryan, but I love the receivers, TEs (wanted Hurst out of college), the OL I’m so-so. RBs I love except Hill. He’s so-so. I hate Koetter. Always have, always will. On Defens

    Pass Happy Shanny

    It’s REMARKABLE that Shanny is throwing the ball on 1st-3rd down, up by 10, with 8 minutes to go. Didn’t he learn ANYTHING from the Falcons game!? God I hope this guy losses.

  29. 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

  31. Our defense played lights out today, let's get that out of the way. A few mistakes by the Raiders but they played really well. We did what this defense was designed for: Took away the deep passes, forced the underneath throws, and then tackled for little gain, all while getting pressure without the need to blitz. Great game. Please don't look at the score and think Koetter has figured anything out. We were handed great field position all game with possession after possession, and we still managed to go 3-and-out and kick FG's multiple times. Running game was bad besides a few good Ito pla

  32. Hey my Falcons family. Ol' Goober needs your prayers, good thoughts, and just some good, positive vibes....more importantly, Mrs. Goober needs them. Today is the BIG surgery day, her reconstruction. It's a 10-12 hour surgery, with a 3 day hospital stay afterwards...including a night (possibly 2) in the ICU. I know she's in good hands...both the Father's and, by extension, the surgeon's as well. Never hurts to have prayers and positivity flowing your way, though. Thanks in advance! I'll update once I have the info.... Love to all!! Goober

  35. ok Mods, if this is in the wrong place, feel free to move it where ever. I built me a new set of corn hole boards. Found some of the old school logos. I bought a cheaper vinyl cutter we play around with here at the house, so I did my own lettering. I love how these turned out. Might put another coat of polyurethene on them, depending on how they play..... so what do y'all think? I already showed them to @Knight of God I know his opinion

    I'm still here. I lost the love of my life last year on July 1. I'm learning to live my new reality, taking it one day at a time. Some days are better than others and some, I just get through and work on the next one. I have a strong support system, my kids, grandkids and extended family and my friends have all been here during this time. I am still a Falcon fan and if the fans are able to go to the games this year and it's safe enough, I'll try to go to the games this year alone or with my kids/grandkids.
