  1. I'm not sure. I seem to remember Ryan struggling trying to integrate Gonzalez into the mix when he arrived. And I think it's that way with Julio, he's trying to hard to integrate him that he's missing a lot of opportunities elsewhere. I could be mis-remembering. And I think Julio being out is going to refocus White. I had this suspicion that a lot of his drops stem from no longer feeling like "the man."
  2. Hue was the one guy on that coaching staff I wanted to keep. And we kept BVG.
  3. What idiot builds a team that can only win if it's sitting on a lead?
  4. Let's be honest. You can't compare Ryan to Manning. One of them is elite, the other serviceable, even with pro bowl targets. Ryan couldn't even break the 200 yard mark when we needed him. Hard work will get you far. But this team will need talent to get to the next level.
  5. Each week, the fans will choose the player with the softest, must cuddly tackle in the game! We'll get Mr. Rogers to deliver a pink teddy-bear to that player! Cause' gosh darn it, we gosh golly love those other guys!
  6. The old site communicated well, actually had hierarchy and decent scanabilty. It had presence, elegance, and I've seen it show up several times as an example of great web design, so it also had respect. It blew almost every other sports franchise out of the water in terms of aesthetics. It was on brand, and presented the organization in a good light. This one is cluttered, has AWFUL readability. And it just seems off brand. I was really looking forward to seeing how the "Rise Up" campaign would evolve the site, but that's just not going to happen now. It's not a news site, but is masquerading
  7. Really? Dude, don't know who you work for, or if you just need a tin foil hat. OMG, everybody's out to get him... it's a conspiracy! Some people don't like the fact that the Falcons beat writer sounds like a complete moron on camera. It's not our fault he sounds like that. Maybe he's nervous and eating too much xanax, I don't know. But he just doesn't broadcast intelligence at all. Not our fault. And if he hasn't sought speech therapy despite failing miserably in this capacity, then it IS his fault. Every beat writer has to defend himself. Some people judge how good a writer is by whether the
  8. yeah, the only time i've seen A LOT of falcons fans in a bar is after a game near the dome. but there has to be somewhere
  9. Well, I usually just... nah... Had fun at the Taco Mac in Decatur, but didnt really consider it a 'falcon crowd'. Havn't seen that anywhere yet. But at least TMac didn't seem to have large numbers of any other fan there.
  10. Sounds like the type of strategy that keeps teams from having sustained success.
  11. Julius Peppers is 30 years old. I won't pretend to know how many top level years he has in him, but if we sign him, we'll be paying big money for several. What are the chance we'll get our money's worth? John Abraham is 31 years old. He was a beast last year, and below average this one (or two years ago, versus this past year if you want to be a dbag about it). This is a young team. What would be the effect of having aging bookends at Defensive end? What will we get? A good pass rush for one, two years? Fantastic, I'll take it, but... We'll be setting ourselves up to lose both at the same tim
  12. Watching that dBag in the next cubical get a promotion to partner. I hate that guy. But he's the flavor of the month because he burned his house down and didn't have insurance.
  13. Dude, don't get me wrong. I love this team. But thinking nostalgically isn't something a Falcons fan should be good at. There's not a whole lot to be nostalgic, unless it's "remember how good we were supposed to be that year?" I'm just saying that since the Saints have won it all, that's one less team that has has a more pathetic history as the Falcons. I like our chances the next few years, but I'm a realist. Last time I liked our chances, we went 8-8, then 7-9. No matter how bad the Falcons were, at least we could point at the Saints and say "hey, there's a real stinker." But the Rome/US
