  1. I definitely salute the Falcon's fans that have purchased PSL's especially the ones that cut back elsewhere to do so. The Falcons are in the midst of their best years ever and coming off a Super Bowl and they couldn't sell out, just don't see it happening unless the get a mega free agent and a phenomenal rookie class this year. Having UGA and Atlanta United do so well this year didn't help either.
  2. through the Falcons... only
  3. CALL 470-341-4500 TODAY TO LEARN HOW TO BE A SEASON TICKET HOLDER! https://tickets.atlantafalcons.com/ No mention of a PSL through atlantafalcons.com The Falcons are now offering a priority list for individuals interested in 2018 Season Tickets
  4. There is something about pounding the rock period, even the Falcons OL has had stretches the last 3 years where they are getting on roll and you wonder why they just didn't keep it up. Especially with Freeman he thrives on getting carries, and his game gets better as he can get a feel for the defense etc. Obviously not every game plays this way, but with Teco and Free Birds ought to keep grinding in some games where they are gashing it.
  5. 1973 Minnesota-Atlanta Monday Night football
  6. Atlanta Falcons owner: We want Matt Ryan here for life All that matters is what Arthur thinks,they can still extend Ryan freeing up cap space and take care some of the pressing needs. Because of continuity can't see any QB we could bring in that would give the Falcons a better shot at the Super Bowl next year probably the year after too.. Not to mention it's not like Ryan's been banged up his whole career
  7. Definitely something funky happened Bills still in the playoff hunt bench Tyrod??? and especially for Peterman.
  8. yes it was and how crappy does QB have to play so the coach ya know I think I'll start Peterman... **** I like Tyrod watched all of his VaTech games, he definitely needs to find the right situation to maximize his effectiveness, BUT right now dropping Ryan for him in Atlanta ain't it.
  9. Super Bowl in next year isn't even on my radar yet, Falcons have a few things to take care of in the off season and get into the regular season to see if they made the right moves. Right now they are just one of the pack.
  10. Could have swore I read somewhere that Sarkisian used TE's more than a fullback to block in the running game than Shannahan. Know it aint gonna happen in Atlanta, but it should, Ballage looks legit
  11. I'd love the shot in the arm it would give the defense and would reluctantly give up Rico, but to me its a trade you do when you are a player away. Got to see what they do a OG, DL and LB before I'd start messing with the secondary or big veteran contracts.
  12. I'm not looking back anymore, season's over,Super Bowl is in the books. This is Quinn's team he still deserves to call the shots,by turning the Falcons into NFC champs in 2 years after Smitty got stale . It's his azz on the line, he knows that. H e l l they played like chit most of the year and ended up one Julio catch from making it back to the NFC championship. As long as Dimitroff and Quinn are on the same page they can get better through the draft,free agency and into training camp is where I still think Quinn excels and makes his greatest impact.
  13. **** I dont want Bama to go away, I want the whole SEC to be strong and Georgia beat everybody LOL. Cause they are getting close to where they are going to have the horses to do it. Because then we will see if it's Bama's depth or Little Nicky's coaching that makes them so good. Already know its their superior depth that mostly carries them through a season.
  14. Musings from Swampgas Gator Forum sorry about the duplicates but I've been up all night Who the **** is paying these kids? Im not sure we have 7 five star players in a decade! What the heck... did he borrow Candi Fisher to give them "special" services? Now when Mullen kicks the dogs *** it will feel even better. Jealous of Georgia. They executed the rebuild we've been desperately trying to accomplish for 10 years It's just too fast and looks fishy. Not one of Saban's past assistants been this "good" this fast, and not one of them can coach at a high level. There are some rumors from someone, a Gator insider, that lives in Georgia that has sworn that there's a diner in northern Georgia that is handing out bags of cash.. rumor, but still you have to wonder when we beat UGA two years ago and they ended up losing 5 games, why... how they signed the #3 class in all of college football after that crappy season. It's just too sudden for me to think that it's just luck or skill in their coaching staff. And they now have the #1 recruiting class lined up for 2019 too. Go figure. It's just too sudden for me to think that it's just luck or skill in their coaching staff. And they now have the #1 recruiting class lined up for 2019 too. Go figure. In 2018, UGA will be down some on defense and lost a few offensive skill players they'll have to replace, but after a year to develop this 2018 class, they could be **** near unbeatable in 2019. The state of GA. had an unusually large number of elite in-state talent this year too and that made it a lot easier for the UGA staff to recruit this year. Be interesting to see if they could duplicate another recruiting haul like this one. That said, its well known in recruiting circle about Bama's recruiting "prowess", and now their former top recruiter Kirby Smart goes to UGA and then brings in SEVEN 5*'s after his second year. I get it, they had great success in 2017, but SEVEN 5*'s?! It's just too fast and looks fishy.

It's just too sudden for me to think that it's just luck or skill in their coaching staff. And they now have the #1 recruiting class lined up for 2019 too. Go figure. It does reek of Ole Piss when they were raking.... and we know the rest of that story. In 2018, UGA will be down some on defense and lost a few offensive skill players they'll have to replace, but after a year to develop this 2018 class, they could be **** near unbeatable in 2019. Still not convinced Kirb is a great coach. He choked on the big stage getting tight in the second half instead of putting his foot on the throat of the opponent like elite coaches do and cost his team a national championship. Just don’t think X’s and O’s wise he’s that great. He’s somewhere between a Ron Zook and an Urban Meyer in my opinion. Say maybe a....Mark Richt? Richt almost made and would have actually won a natty if they beat Bama that one year with Aaron Murray so it’s not like Kirby has done so much better than his predecessor. Let’s be real, he took advantage of a garbage SEC East with him having a very senior laden Richt left star filled team. They beat what turned out to be an average Norte dame team. Got curb stomped by auburn and then won a rematch when auburn was coming off an emotional hard fought win against their biggest rival which saw them lose their best player to injury and he was a shell of himself trying to play the next week in Atlanta. That same auburn team lost to ucf so they weren’t world beaters. They played Bama close and chocked. If that game kept going on Bama only would have separated further. Saban figured them out and adjusted at halftime. Big deal they were a close loser. I do not believe they are paying recruits. I bet even Saban is surprised and a bit dismayed. I do not believe they are paying recruits. I bet even Saban is surprised and a bit dismayed. I don't believe so either. It's like when any school (except us) cleans up on top recruits it's super fishy and they must be cheating lol. Ole Miss did it and they were clearly up to something funny, but Georgia has been reeling in great classes since the days of Richt in the early 2000s and puts plenty of players in the NFL, and now they've got a young coach who was mentored by Nick Saban. Kids are all about trends and the current hot program that's the cool place to be, and right now that's Georgia and Alabama by far in the SEC. but still you have to wonder when we beat UGA two years ago and they ended up losing 5 games, why... how they signed the #3 class in all of college football after that crappy season.

And they signed the #6 class in the country with three 5-stars in Kirby's "transistion" class. A coach that had been a career assistant up until that time. Like it or not folks, UGa has jumped into the big boy CFL pool with both feet, and with the NCAA asleep at the switch who is to say that isn't the "Smart" move. I don't believe so either.

Kids are all about trends and the current hot program that's the cool place to be, and right now that's Georgia and Alabama by far in the SEC. Yes and no. Kids are trendy but its not like there hasn't been documented pay or other crooked schemes to lure recruits in the past. We all know about the obvious ones who were caught but how many gwt away with it? Wasnt there an oklahoma quarterback some years ago who was caught in a car owned by a dealership? Rhett bomar i think among others? Yet oklahoma played us for a title a few years later. The sport is filthy. Id say anyone who thinks recruit buying isnt happening is naive The more i think about it the crazier it sounds. People will link the trail of evidence against Winston as an example and reason that the dude did something wrong or at the least the TPD conspired to sabotage the investigation. Or pick casey Anthony, OJ etc But talk about football and recruiting and 1+1 doesn't equal 2. Bama has tons of smoke but gets away with it. Their main coordinator goes to another team and has the #3 ranked class in a transition year? That alone isn't proof but as a part of a number of issues it sure does. The NCAA is a joke and the schools are now cheating at all time record levels because the threat of the death penalty is off the table. Also, the rewards of cheating are so big and the risk of punishment so low. If you are not paying you are not going to be competitive.
