    Brain Dawkins played at 6 foot and 210.  He was pretty intimidating.

    ^^ This.  He is a Brian Dawkins type that makes WR's and TE's think twice.  He's also very good in run support.

    Neal brings intimidation. Offensive players get nervous whenever Neal is in the area. That alone has caused some dropped passes and some turnovers.
     
    Neal's intimidating presence has been missed on the defense because he can't stay healthy. He was a tone setter despite not being all that great in coverage.

    I would rather take my chance with Neal or the combo of Allen/Kazee than draft a Safety in the top 3 rounds.
    LB, DT and CB are all much bigger holes to fill.

    Gurley had 12 rushing TDs last season and was out significantly.  All Falcons RBs totaled 9 last year.  Devonta 2, Hill 2, Ito 1, Ollison 4.  If Gurley is bottom feeding, then our RB core was lower than that.  They were buried.

    It's a DK offense.  Turner went from 300+ carries in 2011 to around 220 in 2012 when we switched to DK.  I don't foresee that being an issue.  Considering how pass happy DK is and how Gurley has great hands, I think its an excellent fit.

    Well, I was a TD fan when being a TD fan wasn't cool...  Because I could see he was a huge upgrade from what we had to put up with for years .  And This year,, It looks like Blank has given him the ok to do what he thinks is best ,, along with DQ they got their heads together and as we all can see,, This is a epic off season and we haven't even had the draft.. Can you imagine what this team may be if we just hit on our picks ?? I've got confidence because of their many years of gathering knowledge on when to draft positions and where the best place in the draft to gather the rest of the team... I'm going to go ahead and say.. We will have a very good draft.. Gathering info on who to draft and when to draft.. and what positions to draft and what positions to get in FAcy.. Add all that up to what we already have.  I'd say we at the very least make the playoffs. If Ryan stays healthy.

    Fowler is the only big signing, most of the rest are one year deals.
    Yeah, TDQ is on the hot seat, not sure the signings prove it.

    Under TD the falcons  have almost always been aggressive in FA and in trades.
     
    in 08 his first year we had a FA haul and added guys like Erik Coleman and Turner among others.
    in 09 he traded for the GOAT   TE.
    in 10 We  signed the best FA  corner  on the market in Robinson to a big deal.
    in 11 we got   Edwards who at the time  was considered one of the 2 best pass rushers available
    in 2012 we swung deal for Asante Samuel
    in 13 we  got Steven Jackson and Osi.
    in 14 we hit FA hard again with  Soliai,  Jackson, and Asoamoah.
    In 16 we  went big on Mack, Sanu, and others.
    in 17 we got Poe.
    So we have hit FA  pretty hard through out TD's tenure.
    Some of the signings/trades were great, some  not so much ( as it is with every GM)

    thamill reacted to jlrfalcon in For the Gurley Signing Haters: 10 Reasons   
    Reasons to dislike the Gurley Signing:
    1) You are a Yellow Jacket fan and you like that the Falcons never seem to want to draft/sign ex-Bulldogs
    2) You loved Freeman and will miss his spectacular play, especially last year
    3) You figure this money could have been used to resign Campbell or Hooper or Schweitzer
    4) You always preferred Beasley since the 2015 draft and still think he was the better pick
    5) You want Quinn/TD/Koetter to go after next season and figure Gurley's success might prevent this
    6) You have zero faith in this OL improving and think Gurley and Ryan will be in ER by end of season
    7) You are really a Saints fan transplanted in Atlanta and don't want the Falcons to win the NFC South
    8) You actually wanted the Falcons to draft former Bulldog Swift and figure that is unlikely now
    9) You cannot get the Stephen Jackson mess out of your mind and think this is too similar
    10) You think Melvin Gordon, Carlos Hyde, or another great FA RB existed that could have been better/cheaper
    11) You are absolutely convinced Gurley's knee will give out week 1 and he will not play $5m worth of football
     
    I do actually support the signing but struggle to find any significant reason to dislike it.  I truly believe that the Rams wish they were in our shoes with a cheap 1-year deal but just could not afford to risk the full deal they negotiated with Gurley in 2018.

    Gurley has good hands too.  I can see him catching a lot of balls out of the backfield as well.  I think he actually fits pretty well (if that's possible as a RB) in a DK offense.
