    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.

    To those that hope the Falcons will win a Super Bowl, we never have.
    1966 we finished 3-11 (My Dad told me to give them a few years to build a good team)
    1967 we finished 1-12-1 (Dad said maybe next year)
    1968 we finished 2-12 (Started to realize Dad wasn't always right)
    etc.

    Since Thomas Dimitroff has been the Falcons GM, he has never traded-down in the first-round of the NFL Draft.  However, he has traded-up in the first-round on five different occasions:
    2008 traded-up for Sam Baker
    2011 traded-up for Julio Jones
    2013 traded-up for Desmond Trufant
    2017 traded-up for Tak McKinley
    2019 traded-up for Kaleb McGary
    This certainly doesn't mean that Dimi will never trade-down in the first-round, but it does indicate that he seems more likely to trade-up, rather than trade-down in the first round.

    It’s actually a smart business move because UGA fans love Gurley. He won’t be the focal point of this offense so it has zero downside

    I haven’t been a homer in a long time but I be damm if this didn’t make me happy to see a Dawg back home . Glad it’s a one year deal , hopefully we use him in a good manner considering his knee is bad & more so than anything else I hope he helps win games !! This off-season is going much better than the last .

    thamill reacted to matty72780 in Beasley vs Fowler and our new TE   
    I understand the hype and excitement but let’s be realistic here with what we’re getting in Dante Fowler. Fowler and Beasley have been in the league the same amount of years, however Beasley has 37.5 total sacks to Fowler’s 27.5.  Sure, Fowler has had some injury issues but he also lined up next to Aaron Donald and Calais Campbell his entire career allowing him to run free. I hope I’m wrong but this signing reeks of desperation - we’re paying a guy $16mm a year and we let Beasley sign elsewhere for $9mm year despite having better production. 
     
    My only assumption would be he’s a better locker room guy and a better leader than Beasley, being that Quinn coached him at Florida.  We’ve seen these “splashes before” where we drastically overpay and it hamstrings us - I hope I’m wrong, I Hope last years Fowler is who we got, but if this ends up being another Ray Edwards, I’m going to lose my ish! 
     
    I LOVE Hayden Hurst (I live in Baltimore) but I’m pretty sure this is the first time in NFL history a team has traded their second round pick for a backup tight-end. 
     
    Going to be an interesting year! GO FALCONS!

    Under-performing, injury history DE who had a contract year season playing beside the best DT in the league and DQ overpaid because he played at UF.
    Not a fan of the signing.

    Cmon man, Hageman ain’t ****...can’t believe people still clamor for this bum.
    also, Fowler got his sacks in LAR on a “mid size line”...Grady got a solid 20 on Donald even. Brockers was also at 305. Argument doesn’t carry any weight (get it..weight )

    Totally get it.  They have to hit gold on who they pay.  They are in a tough spot.  It's generally a good idea not to go grocery shopping when you're hungry but that's exactly what TD and DQ have to do.

    thamill got a reaction from federicofalcon2 in Pauline: Fowler will chose between Rams and Falcons(No Jets)   
    I agree with this.  Brockers and Suh paired with their CBs was a recipe for success.  I'm just not sold that Dante Fowler is the solution for us.  Grady undoubtedly has the ability to be the next AD.  Love that guys play. 
    As Summerhill brought up he's 25 and has a history with Quinn so maybe he will flourish here.  It's just a big question mark. 
    Fiscally speaking, it's probably not a good idea to throw a lot of money when we have cap problems already at a question mark.  If he signs a big deal with us, his success or lack thereof will ultimately be the deciding factor if TD and DQ are here next year.  Given that, it seems pretty risky.

    We'll Grady has that ability to get there, but Rams have at least given him pieces such as Brockers and Fowler and better CB/S personnel to give Donald chances to get to the QB, but also to have his teammates eat as well.  Donald is above everyone else I agree, but Grady could get there too if teams didn't feel he was the only pass rushing player on that line that had any real threat to them.
    Beasley never got past his "duke riley" syndrome.  and HE performed better due to players like Freeney, Jarrett, and Clayborn performing better keeping teams from giving him attention.
    Grady is coming along just fine, and if we add pieces next to him on either side, I have great faith he'll meet those top 5 expectations and be considered "our Aaron Donald"
