  1. I tell ya the Falcoholic often has interesting information regarding the Falcons. But reading it this morning it's very TMZ quality, and if that's what it's becoming they've lost me. I don't care about their sensationalizing or speculating BS. I only want the real news regarding the Falcons.
  2. 2002 - I found the boards when I was looking for information on the division realignments and I've been here ever since.
  3. I know that it's doubtful we sign anyone else until it will no longer affect comp picks next year, and it would be stupid for us to do so.
  4. Yeah we've just had to many guys that we made the wrong call and signed them and then cut them a year or 2 later. I hope to see the team make the right call as the player is becoming a free agent going forward. I think we are trending that way but we'll see over the next few years. We have to identify our core players and pay them, then identify our role players that other teams will over pay. I want it all, keep our best players and recoup draft capital on our role players.
  5. No what we need to do instead of cutting players with contracts creating dead cap space, is to make the determination as they are coming up on free agency if we are going to keep them long term or let them walk. Letting them become free agents signing big deals gets us comp picks, cutting players with contracts gets us lost cap space. I choose the path that gets us gains in the draft.
  6. I only watched the Maryland - Michigan video, but that QB at Maryland looked like a big steaming pile. Moore moving to Carolina shouldn't be a big adjustment for him.
  7. Or we could find out now... http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/atlanta-falcons/matt-ryan-3983/ Current Contract Matt Ryan signed a 5 year, $150,000,000 contract with the Atlanta Falcons, including a $46,500,000 signing bonus, $100,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $30,000,000. In 2018, Ryan will earn a base salary of $6,000,000 and a signing bonus of $46,500,000, while carrying a cap hit of $17,700,000 and a dead cap value of $96,900,000.

  8. We might keep 3 QB's this year or roll the dice by cutting Schaub and hope Ryan can play 100 percent of snaps. Let Benkert, and Grayson battled it out for #2.
  9. I had no idea this series existed, I just found it by happenstance, but watch all 4 episodes about 5 minute each. I like this young mans attitude and physical skills. I look forward to seeing if he can put it all together.
  10. It makes perfect sense in context. Everyone expected him to go in the top 15 or 20 picks. It's a blessing in disguise that he fell to the Falcons at 26. He comes to a team with a good friend and mentor in Julio as the primary WR weapon, a good QB and 2 years removed from playing in a Super Bowl. As opposed to going in that top 20 range to a team like the Cowboys that would expect him to be THE MAN from day 1, or the Bengals that never win anything. It's also a blessing in disguise that he wasn't the 1st WR taken in this draft as most expected he would be or he would have been a stinkin' Panther. He wasn't tongue tied or misspoken, just misunderstood. I mean think about it from his perspective, he's been expecting to be drafted in the mid 1st round range, and now he's falling, but there still hasn't been a WR selected, then the Panthers select Moore. He's probably having doubts, what happened, why am I falling, and then after the Titans pick he gets a call from the best place he can imagine going but should have never had a shot at drafting him. Hence a "blessing in disguise".
  11. I hear a lot of the same names thrown around as free agent DT, Hankins would be great but expensive. What about a 1 year deal on Jay Bromley another former Giant DT. Still only 25 and kind of got pushed out with the change in coaching staff. He would certainly fit in with the rotation.
  12. It would not surprise me if we sign a DT after May 8th, if signed after that date it won't effect our comp picks for next year. Bennie Logan and Johnathan Hankins are both still available. EDIT: Bennie Logan has been signed, but Hankins is still out there.
  13. Beasley is here at least 2 more years. This will be the Roth year of his rookie deal and I guarantee we'll exercise our 5th year option.
  14. You say that but I'm not sure Gallup makes it to our pick in the 3rd. He's better than you think.
  15. I hope any player drafted by a rival is a complete and total bust.
