  1. Okay, he did not know his comments would be public. I am still disappointed he feels like that about the Falcons, who have bent over backwards to deal with him. And if he told SS that under the impression it was private who else had he been bad mouthing the Falcons to privately? I realize that the Falcons got a lot from JJ. He’s an amazing WR. But I did not see the Falcons wrong him or treat him badly. He should know how to behave and discuss his team and not be so dismissive of the team respectful of him, even privately. Maybe I am old school, but I just had a totally different impression of JJ based on his past behavior. Again, I love watching the dude play. But my impression of him has been altered. Who cares I know. So I will shut up.
  2. Thanks, but I deem it unwise to put in a contract that you can get out if you want more money or want to play for another team. These people are adults. If you sign a contract to play and get paid, honor it unless the team breaches the contract or you have a valid and legal reason. The previous cited reasons are not legal justification in my humble view.
  3. What’s JJ’s contract out if you know?
  4. Didn’t know that. So it’s an unique or unusual business in that respect.
  5. I hear it’s a business all the time. Well in business, if you do not honor your contract or perform, you get sued.
  6. I see some of that. I still love watching him play and wish him the best. But I think how he told SS he was leaving and the language he used was kind of classless in my view. Anyhow, just me.
  7. I listened to the call and it appears to me that JJ meant he was out of Atlanta and did not want to go to Dallas because he did not think they were a winner at this time. If JJ was happy in the ATL, it would have been stupid to say what he said on live tv.
  8. Hash, I’ll take your word for it. We’ll see if it happens.
  9. Matt consistently rolling out—not sure about that, but what do I know.
  10. They could let fans in and not near any a player. COVID would be an excuse in my view.
  11. He would be a cap casualty here too I am afraid.
  12. I know. But responded seriously cause I really liked the non-drama. Just used your post to express my satisfaction.
  13. I hear you but I loved the non-drama. Just me!!!
  14. I admit I did not know anything about him when drafted. His draft speech was weird for me to listen to albeit I understood what he inartfully said. But as a Falcon I pulled for him and wanted him to succeed. He had the physical tools and would scare the **** out of me if lined up in front of him. I trusted the Falcons knew what they were doing. But the weirdness continued and old injury started to become a present nagging injury that affected his play.
  15. I am happy and Falcons did what they told us they would do—went with BPA. I say keep that strategy through at least round 3. After that, I would not mind a blend of BPA at positions of need.
  16. I believe some folks get too invested in their personal opinion of what they think the team should do rather than having an open mind of what the team actually did. Just accept reality rather than setting out to convince others the team was wrong and you were right. That’s a bad road to travel because it pits you against your team’s success with the player it drafted.
  17. I look at upside as potential. A player potential may be realized or unrealized. So if I put it in this context, every drafted football player has some potential—I mean someone thinks so because they drafted them. But not all of that potential will be realized. When and if you realize your potential depends on other intangibles that cannot necessarily be measured in an exact way. Hence, some exceed, meet, or fail to realize that potential. Sorry to interject myself, but found convo intriguing.
  18. I respectfully disagree. It would not necessarily mean that. More than simply taking a QB would need to happen. For instance, they take a QB, but otherwise use several picks to sure up the Defense and get a few other offensive weapons. That would not necessarily signal rebuild, right?
  19. “ bail out”—can you be more specific?
