  1. With the stories coming out of Philly after their NFCCG win... punching a police horse. Getting into bloody brawls in the parking lot that needed to be broken up by police. Pelting opposing fans that are walking by with beer cans. Pelting the Vikings team bus with beer cans. Rioting in the street. Walking through the streets of Philly with a sign saying "F(*K Millie", the 99 year old Vikings fan who was at the game. I just can't and won't root for them. I know Eagles fans that won't even go to their games because they're such jerks. One of my friends who is a Philly fan went to his first Eagles game.. and said it was also his last after he witnessed Philly fans ripping an opposing teams jersey off a a 12 year old kid. And, during the Falcons/Eagles game my wife and I were out in northern New Jersey for a funeral and decided to watch the game at a restaurant. It was full of Eagles fans because the Flyers were playing the Devils in Newark. The Philly fans were in our faces, booing us from before the game started until after it was over. They followed us to the door afterward and harassed us all the way out. One of them put a hand my wife's shoulder and almost caused a fight. I hate the Pats but I cannot, will not root for the Eagles.
  2. Favorite Falcons game of all time? Last year's NFC Championship Game. It was one of the most fun games I've ever been to.. and was extra special because I was down on the field during player intros. 2nd favorite that I actually attended is the 2004 47-17 demolition of the Greatest Show on Turf.. in the Playoffs. And of course no Falcons fan's list would be complete without including the 1998 NFCCG. One of the teams greatest moments.
  3. I liked Grace too, but let's be real. He appeared in 11 games this year in his time with the Falcons and Colts. Dude has 3 tackles in those 11 games. He isn't exactly lighting it up. I think he would have been a good Plan D guy, but he wouldn't have been much help this season.. and may not be for another season or two.
  4. I don't think anyone will give up much more than a 6th or 7th for a marginal starter coming off of his second shoulder surgery. Siemien has the look of a good long term NFL backup who can step in and win you a few games if need be.. or maybe a stopgap starter until a better option is found. But you don't give up premium draft picks for a guy like that. If the Broncos won't take a 6th or 7th for him then either move on or wait for him to be cut.
  5. As a lifelong Pennsylvania resident I absolutely hate the Eagles. It's as much about hating their fans as it is the team. I know Eagles fans that won't even go to their games because they're such jerks. Last week during the Falcons Eagles game my wife and I were out in northern New Jersey watching the game. The restaurant was full of Eagles fans because the Flyers were playing the Devils in Newark. The Philly fans were in our faces, booing us from before the game started until after it was over. They followed us to the door afterward and harassed us all the way out. One of them put a hand on my wife's shoulder and almost got his teeth knocked in for it. So f*$# the Eagles and their fans. I hope they get destroyed today. Go Vikings for today and in the Superbowl.
  6. The only question I have is IF Bevell would take the job. Seriously, people need to actually do some research before trashing the guy. If there is one thing he knows how to do, it is how to score points.... which is the one thing we really couldn't do much of this season Bevell's offenses were top 10 in points-per-game (ppg) from 2012-2015 per NFL.com stats: Passing game 2012 - 9th ppg, 5th rated 2013 - 8th ppg, 5th rated 2014 - 10th ppg, 8th rated 2015 - 4th ppg, 1st rated ** Lynch leaves ** 2016 - 18th ppg, 13th rated 2017 - 11th ppg, 9th rated Rushing game 2012 9th ppg, 9th yardage per game 2013 8th ppg, 4th yardage per game 2014 10th ppg, 1st yardage per game 2015 3rd ppg 4th yardage per game ** Lynch leaves ** 2016 18th ppg 25th yardage per game 2917 11th ppg, 23rd yardage per game Overall offense 2012 9th ppg, 17th yardage per game 2013 8th ppg, 18th yardage per game 2014 10th ppg, 9th yardage per game 2015 4th ppg, 4th yardage per game ** Lynch leaves ** 2016 12th ppg, 18th yardage per game 2017 11th ppg, 15th yardage per game Lynch leaving and the absurdly bad o-line the Seahawks fielded in 2016/2017 really messed things up, but the previous 4 years were fantastic. I really believe are looking at a guy like Bevell for 2 reasons. First, he has 17 years of NFL experience as a QB coach/assistant QB coach (5 years with Brett Favre) and another 11 years as an offensive coordinator (Vikings and then Seahawks) so he can offer some real NFL experience for Sark to draw on. And... the reason I think might get him to take a chance on going back to QB coach after 11 years as an OC... is that he would be a safety net in case Sark still struggles next season. Should Sark fail miserably, we would have an experienced, NFL tested OC who could take over on the fly and keep us competitive if we kick him to the curb before the end of the season.
  7. TD just said in the season season ending press conference that they recognize that there is a transition period for O-linemen coming in from college and that teams are starting to realize the value of spending money on established players in free agency and that the Falcons are in line with that thinking. http://www.atlantafalcons.com/media-lounge/live.html I think this is the smart way to go. You know what you're getting with a linemen when you bring in someone who is established in the NFL. Draft picks are a crap shoot that may or may not pan out.. or just may take several years to really get good. We have our stars in the primes of their careers and we don't have another 2-3 years for guys to come around.
  8. If Norwell hits the market and we aren't at least TRYING to sign him, we are doing something wrong. I doubt we can offer what some other teams can so I would be shocked if we got him, but at least give it a shot. He is the best young lineman available and would be an upgrade at either guard spot.
  9. Ragnow is the guy I would shoot for in the 2nd unless by some miracle Nelson falls to us in the 1st.
  10. Why don't we steal Zach Line from the Saints? He did a good job as their lead blocker... help us out while weakening an opponent.
  11. I think it makes sense to bring in some former OCs as offensive staff since Sark isn't going anywhere. Like with TD, the added perspective may really help him. If Lafleur doesn't get the Titan's job... can we offer him Assistant Head Coach to come back?
  12. This was my thought too. What kind of title could we come up with to steal Mike LaFleur back from the 49ers? Or another promising offensive assistant to help Sark with play calling etc?
  13. This game wouldn't even be close if it wasn't for all the slippage. We would have destroyed them. I'm hyped up. Offense would have put up big numbers if our guys hadn't slipped down so **** much. And this D.. THIS D.. WOW... That was a dominant performance. If the offense come alive and the D keeps playing like this.. we can beat anyone left in the Playoffs.
  14. This! I have called annually and gotten discounted or free Sunday ticket.
