  1. So Fontenot and Smith are starting their relationship off in disagreement over the existing QB? I thought they were on the same page according to their interviews? Now Mort knows what's supposedly going on in the organization? I don't believe this for a moment. Pure conjecture
  2. Looks like a very good passer, but he wouldn't get away with most of those throws (in coverage) in the NFL. I still think he could be very good with the right coaching staff and scheme.
  3. We need players who can not only play tight coverage, but can also make plays on the ball.
  4. Love his hitting and ball hawking ability
  5. Like I've said...you don't get rid of a former MVP, franchise QB for an unproven rookie QB. Why do you think everyone is trying to trade for one? They don't come along that often.
  6. Why in the world would the Falcons trade Matt Ryan (a veteran, former MVP, franchise QB) for a rookie who has zero experience against NFL defenses? Does this seem like something Fontenot and Smith would do??? If they draft a QB, it will be as a future replacement to Ryan.
  7. Should be good for the Rams if Stafford can stay healthy.
  8. Just about every team has a passing game coordinator these days. Shanny had one when he was here.
  9. Some of the players do play hesitant like they are scared. That's a problem the new coaches will have to deal with.
  10. I know there are times when a defense has to run the zone scheme, but why do our guys seem to be unaware of a guy who sits down right in front of them AND doesn't attack the opponent while the ball is in the air? It bugs me when they'll watch the player catch the ball and then try and tackle them? They should always have an attacking mindset.
  11. Man I love this guy's yards after contact, catches like a receiver, and overall patience running the ball.
  12. From what my sources tell me, Smith chose Fontenot and then Fontenot chose Smith. They hugged each other and became one. Now they're one Falcon leading us to the big 🏆. And everyone lived happily ever after.
  13. Oh I see, you authored this thread. I guess that makes it ok.
  14. Any HC with an ounce of sense won't hand the keys to a rookie QB over a successful franchise QB. IMO, Matt has at least five good years left in his career. Matt's up and down play has been due to the Falcons hiring OCs (exception of Shanny) who aren't creative and struggled to make in game adjustments on the fly. If Matt performs at a high level this upcoming season (which I suspect he will) with a creative OC, then his decline is delayed and he'll have more time to play.
  15. "...these players are hybrids who straddle the line between linebacker and safety and they’re absolutely critical to defending modern offenses. These are guys that can cover an athletic tight end or wide receiver and also thump in the box on run plays." Maybe DQ was on to something with the hybrid players, but ran the wrong defensive scheme. Based on this article the Falcons may hold on to Neal or draft a younger, cheaper hybrid safety/LB.
  16. I know. That's why you got the thumbs up.
