  1. The thoughts are actually good.. the execution is just bad...
  2. It would have been hard not to have a 7-9 basement with a highly paid Franchise QB.
  3. Actually both of those guys are swing guys because neither is a pure “speed” EDGE.
  4. Fine draft... we definitely don’t have spots for 9 drafted guys!
  5. Happy Birthday Sir!
  6. To be fair he was Cheeks last year, but he moved to RT to accommodate the overdraft of the league’s worst LT. I am not interested, but he could definitely be a good backup for somebody!
  7. We need a full time 1T part time 3T. I will take Oliver if he is there, but Dexter Lawrence would have a bigger impact on our defense next year and could be had lower. #teamtradedown
  8. More realistic than Ford being available!
  9. Translation: Does not fit your Superfriends Unite Magical Unicorn draft scenario theory? I agree we need improved line play and some new faces, but we were never drafting 3 OL and running them out there and to ignore the fact that the relationship between backs and OL’s is symbiotic will leave you inevitably disappointed in our offseason.
  10. Actually... 1. Gus Edwards BAL 2. Adrian Peterson WAS 3. Zeke Elliott DAL 4. LeGarrette Blount DET 5. Joe Mixon CIN Highest Rated OL’s 1. Pittsburgh 2. Cleveland 3. Indianápolis 4. New England 5. Philadelphia You need more evidence than this?
  11. This what some who plays Madden says... you can’t lament the loss of Freeman AND think you can win with “Any Back” this pipe dream some of you guys have of picking 7 OL and magically being better in the run game is just not gonna happen and in fact has NEVER happened!!!
  12. Why are some backs statistically better with statistically worse run blocking lines. This board has become sooooo OL obsessed that we are now functioning on this “great line cures all” myth. RB’s still matter (I would never overpay nor overdraft one, because they can be found), how was Dallas’ running game without Zeke behind the highest paid/highest accoladed line in the NFL? Cheeks...
  13. We need another back whether Free is healthy or not. We already have a Free sized clone in Ito. I would prefer the back be a bigger more dynamic RB who could be a better inside runner. If Free doesn’t come back are we “hoping” that Ito steps up like we “hoped” the backups stepped up last year?
  14. You are correct @delaigle: Look at Grady’s rookie season, Payne’s season last year, Fletcher Cox’s rookie season, etc. Even Aaron Donald (who might be the best DT ever when he is done and had an incredible rookie season) “only” had 22 Sacks + QB Hits his rookie season compared to 61.5 this year. We need a veteran run stuffing DT like Snacks Harrison or Atibah Rubin. Crawford and Senat can rush from the Nickel. Our list at DT includes: 1. David Irving (only can afford with a VB cut) 2. Mo Wilkerson (will be on another “prove it” deal. 3. Christian Covington 4. Henry Anderson 5. Bennie Logan 6. Zach Kerr 7. Olsen Pierre 8. Gabe Wright 9. Trent Thompson (AAF) 10. Jordan Phillips
  15. I am in and out. I will post more! How are you?
  16. While I certainly believe that the Falcons OL MUST be improved, this post calls out TWO missing elements that may be a Chicken vs. Egg situation: 1. We have not had a Short Yardage back in years. 2. The playcallers knew that every short yardage run play had to be perfect because we lacked a back that can grab those extra or hidden yards. The best RB’s against 8 plus men in the box/short yardage situations, are not necessarily from the highest rated run game lines: 1. Gus Edwards BAL 2. Adrian Peterson WAS 3. Zeke Elliott DAL 4. LeGarrette Blount DET 5. Joe Mixon CIN Highest Rated OL’s 1. Pittsburgh 2. Cleveland 3. Indianápolis 4. New England 5. Philadelphia We NEED a Short Yardage back. We also need a resolute playcaller, because even the best RB’/teams convert at 78%. A shaky playcaller allows stuffs more influence over succeeding short yardage calls than they should have. That’s how you end up in a 50/50 split. Numbers are from PFF and FBO.
  17. Preston Smith is wayyyy off the realistic list. We are shopping from the bargain bin and the reclamation project aisle Curry is realistic and an upgrade from Beasley, but unless we rescind Beasley’s contract our shopping will be limited to the draft.
  18. Pink Elephant in the room: Bosher is not elite at anything and has the most blocked punts since he entered the league. We also don’t have a single returner of any type on the roster. We need some talent upgrades to go along with our coaching upgrade!
  19. If you look back, he hasn’t been the same since he suffered the concussion.
  20. Eagles had an OC = Frank Reich (Pedersen called the plays. Saints and Chiefs both have OC's, the HC just calls the plays!
  21. Peyton ALWAYS has an OC and he calls the plays!
  22. I couldn’t agree more...
  23. When people say this what do they mean? So fire the entire staff except Quinn because he is doing such a great job picking, hiring and holding the staff accountable???
  24. Vic Beasley... you ain’t foolin nobody with this alias!!!
