  1. I just hope he's back at 100%
  2. The Patriots do get a freebie entry to the playoffs every year because of their division. That probably won't change this year either. But give them credit, they take advantage of it. Their team is not much better than other playoff teams. They just do all the little things right. That's usually the difference in a close game (which all of their Super Bowl appearances have been) The Falcons just need to be average on defense and be able to pick up a 3rd and short. Hopefully players getting healthy will help the defense. And hopefully there are improvements with the O-line to pick up the tough yards. That and a little luck and Falcons could be headed to Miami!
  3. With Kwon getting that much, Debo will break the bank. Barring injury we will almost certainly make him the highest paid LB in the NFL when his time comes. Add to that, look at the contract Landon Collins just got (6 yr $84M) and that probably gives you a starting point for Keanu Neal. Falcons can pick up his 5th year option next year though to at least have him 2 more seasons. Bottom line others have said Falcons MUST continue to draft well. Hard decisions ahead. Good problem to have (especially during the next 2 year window)
  4. In today's NFL, I just don't see paying a DT that much money. The Rams have maybe the 2 best DTs in the league and they struggled against the run all season. They also only ranked 15th in sacks. Put as much money as you can into the O-line and get some 2nd tier free agents or draft picks for D-line. With a great O-line, you can light up the scoreboard AND get the tough 3rd/4th and 1 to eat the clock or put a team away.
  5. These, but with the red helmets!!
  6. Biggest ********* coach in the NFL.
  7. Most of these interviews were done after we lost to Philly in the first game of the season. And all the criticism was deserved after that game! But not just on Matt Ryan--the whole offense (WRs,RB,OL,OC). That game was pitiful. The arguments about money are pathetic. It's just the market rate for a FRANCHISE QB--and Matt Ryan is definitely that! He's not Aaron Rodgers and never will be. He is and has been a top 10 QB in this league for 10 years now. GMs would kill to draft a guy that they can count on for 10+ years. Why can't we appreciate that we have a great QB on our team?!? Us Falcons fans will most certainly miss Matt Ryan when he is gone. Maybe when we're one of the teams constantly searching for another franchise QB, we'll appreciate him then.
  8. After watching that game, it would be really hard to lose to the Cardinals. They were just plain TERRIBLE. How the h*** they beat a healthy Aaron Rodgers I'll never know.
