  1. Yeah, we threw out all the guys who we didn't think would make it to see who could do the job, and they found Celestin. Well done, I say. If we lay an egg against Philly, I'll be dropping an F bomb.
  2. Well, you I understood, and almost always take to be sarcastic. But those after you is harder.
  3. I can't tell who is being sarcastic and who is totally over reacting to a preseason game. There is NOTHING to be read into that game.
  4. I THINK it must have been this one... it's a very fuzzy memory. I think it must have been for my 4th birthday, which was just a few days before. 10/07/1979 Green Bay Packers7@Atlanta Falcons25 W Box
  5. Does anyone have anything from PFF on J'Terius Jones or Zimmer?
  6. I really don't care WHO wins, but it clearly should not be Duke. And it would be nice to have Duke's replacement on the roster and ready to roll. I really do like what Oluokun could bring in terms of his athletic measurables and versatility. I also like the kind of underdog background he brings also.
  7. The more I thought about it, it was hard to narrow down. I want to see all the guys with very little data on them... D: Senat, J. Jones, Crawford, Riley, Foye, Oliver O: Fusco/Schweitzer, Gono, Ridley, both TEs, Ito, Gage I'm really interested in seeing how our ST & Return game looks. I think the ST game is usually the most interesting phase in Preseason, since those are where bubble guys can make the team.
  8. He's done a ton of good stuff in the community with the Alzheimer's Association. I think you have a good grasp on his attention grabbing. I don't like that about him at all, and therefore I don't really like him around the Falcons. But as a person, he seems to be a decent guy.
  9. I'd love to see him have like 3 amazing (unscouted) games in the middle of the season, and then trade him for a couple of high picks, and see him never really do much again. But that's a typical pipe dream of mine.
  10. I got goosebumps on my goosebumps, and my nipples got hard. This it so inspiring that I'm turned on. I'm pumped.
  11. Dude, I hadn't heard about this, but I hope the Falcons have clauses releasing them from contracts if our players do stupid **** and get hurt. A pro athlete should not be driving around an ATV. If they like that kind of stuff, it's fine, but wait until the health of your body isn't your living.
  12. I really don't see Roethlisberger as a top tier QB. Really not ever, with the consistency that they describe as being needed in that top tier. His teams won a couple of Super Bowls, but I don't think he carried those teams.
  13. Julio wanted his guaranteed money up front. The Falcons, being the accommodating organization that they are, gave it to him. If that's his gripe, he needs to do a little self reflection. I liked Julio just fine before this, but I'm of the opinion that a team should be built in the trenches and on defense to be successful for the long term. That means not giving record setting contracts to wide receivers, when those types of contracts are given out. For that reason, at this point, I'd rather have picks than Julio.
  14. All right. Trade this ****** now. You just can't disregard a contract with 3 years left on it. Maybe he is worth more, but it really is moot. HE signed the contract, and yeah some guys got paid more than him who don't deserve it - that's one reason why those franchises suck.
