  1. I don't. I would just like to have seen some kind of return on him. So you apparently think we did try to trade him and nobody bit?
  2. Well I'll jump in... Why didn't we try to trade Alford? The Cardinals signed him pretty quickly, and for money not too far from the contract we had him on... Why didn't we hold on to him, offer him up in a trade for anything any other team would give us, and then see what happened. We could have held on to him... We didn't need the freed up cash for another month or so when free agency begins...
  3. He dominated the Shrine Bowl practices, from what I read. And in the Shrine Bowl, he had one carry on a first down for about 8 yards before he was hit by about 3 defenders, and he carried them another four yards for a first down. I like him because 1.) I think we can get him later in the draft... 5th, maybe 6th round, and 2.) I think he can pick up that one yard on fourth and one when we need it.
  4. I liked Daniel Wise from Kansas to be our 5T base DE... He was shoving OLmen around after the play was over... He's got some dog in him, and I like that. There was an Edge rusher from Virginia named Braelford... not sure of the spelling as I'd never heard of him before, but that guy got after the West QB just about every play... I'd love to get him in the later rounds. Thought Odoh had a good game at Tackle, and really liked Ozigbo, the RB from Nebraska as a back who can pick up that one yard on 4th and one for us...
  5. He is incredibly fast! Sounds like a guy Quinn would love to coach...
  6. I found a couple of videos on here that make me agree with you Dawg... Looks like they liked his pass rush skills...
  7. Who is this guy? Was he with us all of preseason? I don't remember seeing him on the field... ever! Best wishes to him on his career as a Falcon though...
  8. With due respect to karma, and the way things balance out in the NFL, I'd rather lose the season opener and beat Philly in the playoffs. And by the way, Philly hasn't always had our number. The year we lost to Dallas when we should have gone to the Super Bowl the first time... 1980? Philly got whipped by the Raiders in the Super Dome in New Orleans... we definitely had Philly's number back in those days... That should have been us vs. the Raiders...
  9. Can somebody post the current roster for watching tonight's game? I'd appreciate it...
  10. Slappy, See you on the streets of gold, beside the Crystal Sea... RIP Brother...
  11. Slappy, I'm another one that doesn't post often, but read regularly... I'm so sorry to hear about your situation... Prayers have gone up for you and your family... Blessings... PS-Always loved your gravatar? Is that what you call those pictures besides your name?
  12. My earlier post came when I'd read the first two pages, and we were up to six pages total then... Now I want to add two more... OG R.C. Thielman who was much more appreciated after he moved on to Washington... He played on some really good Falcon Offensive Lines... LB Don Hansen... I think he was the third linebacker along with Nobis and Brezina... and good in his own right...
  13. Joel Williams, LB with Kuykendall and Al Henderson back in days of the Gritz Blitz... and John Zook, the bookend opposite of Claude Humphrey, and outstanding in his own right...
  14. I don't believe Saubert will be, or is in a battle to be, our #2 Tight End. I think he's our #2 Receiving Tight End right now. Paulsen is our #2 Blocking Tight End. Sure there will be times when Paulsen will get a pass thrown his way, like we did with Toilolo in 2016. Likewise, there will be times when Saubert stays in and blocks as we make some surprise calls to use him differently from what the defense is expecting. But mostly, Saubert will be the second pass catcher and Paulsen will be the second blocker at tight end.
  15. I don't know why Philadelphia and Green Bay are on this list. Other than their fans... Philly's in particular. But we used to always beat the Eagles, especially the year we were on our way to the Super Bowl, and lost to Dallas in the 4th quarter. We'd have played Philly in the NFCCG, and we'd have beaten them pretty badly... we always did back then! And Green Bay, as someone above mentioned, we've whipped them every time we've played them I think...
