  1. Well there are only 5 players left on our team from that Super Bowl, so i dont think there is going to be any feed back or locker room material from the Falcons. The rest of the team going to be like, Um..i had nothing to do with that..lol
  2. I understand what your saying, but with having a new coach, a new scheme and a whole lot of new players, i just think there would be a benefit to get the starters a few series' together to at least get somewhat of cohesiveness... think about it..these guys cant even tackle in training camp. You just cant duplicate game reps vs Practice...even a few series in Preseaon as a unit, is better than just what they get in practice...just my opinion...maybe it makes a difference, maybe it dont... other than worrying about injuries, i just dont see the benefit of not playing your first stringers in preseason
  3. Pete Carroll also is not a first year head coach introducing a new scheme to a team with a big rollover of players and rookies
  4. The Texans played their starters in preseason
  5. I would like to see the records today of teams that didnt play their starters in preseason vs the ones who did.... The Saints played their starters in PS and abused the Packers who didnt....not for sure about the other games
  6. My choice would be Rosen. Kid is only 24 years old. He could come in and sit behind Matt for a couple of years (assuming there could be a 2 year plan for MR as people have suggested) then take over for MR and only be 26. AS resurrected Tannehill, would love to see what he could do with Rosen over a couple of years. My only concern would be his love for Football. I remember there were concerns that he didnt have the passion for the game coming out of college...but if he's all in, then i say go for it
  7. Well I'm pretty sure that when someone blows coverage or assignments, this regime is not going to bring them cookies and warm milk after the game to make them feel better..they will not tolerate, unlike the previous regime.
  8. Opps. Didnt see it posted. Didnt think it would be part of the Julio traded. My bad
  9. He totally just ripped the whole organization apart. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/falcons-big-mistake-isnt-trading-julio-jones-its-not-also-dealing-matt-ryan-and-others-for-a-full-rebuild/amp/?__twitter_impression=true
  10. Because they have a lot more options at resstructuring than we do.....apparently their GM keeps them very minimal with dead money....so doing this is kinda out of the ordinary for himn... The only restructure we had left to do would have been Grady... Oh yeah...and their is that whole, Julio didnt want to be here thing...
  11. Not a MR hater at all...Matt's my 2nd favorite falcon of all time actually, and i have been outspoken on here about keeping Matt and not drafting a QB.. Anyway, you obviously didnt read my post or only seen what you wanted to see then hopped in to be the big bad keyboard warrior.... My point of the post was maybe if they would have approached Matt from the get go Matt may have redone his contract, and Make the money back in 2023 when the cap is suppose to make a major jump... i never one time said anything negative or hating about Matt.
  12. I dont know..maybe not sign an extension with a team that has a "weak arm" QB ,,,,, He would have already been a Free Agent and chosen any "strong arm" QB that he wanted to play for....but obviously Matt was good enough for him to take the loot
  13. If my boss gave me some guarantees...as i mentioned in the post, then yes i would be open to it...read the whole post before responding
  14. No..don't have you on ignore at all.... IF two parties are willing to redo a contract, then a contract can be redone....the NFL Union cannot prevent you from doing that..they may not like it, but they cannot stop you...... I believe Dante Fowler just took a paycut to stay with us because if we would have cut him, his guaranteed money would have been less than what we guaranteed
  15. #1 I never said Matt was greedy...if you would read the actual post instead of the title i said Matt's money was deserved...i also said Matt may have been open to it if they would have made dedication to him right off the bat...it was all just hypothesis... #2 If 6 million dollars is no big deal, then why havent we freed it up, already....therefore giving us more levarage in the JJ situation Some of you guys get too wound up...this was all hypothesis...sit down, put your feet up, and have a drink.................****
  16. Yeah...if he would have taken the pay cut initially, then we would not have had to restructure again......i think..lol
  17. I think Reeves being fired was more of a Rich McKay thing...if i remember correctly, McKay was at an owner's meeting or something...still employed by TB...mysteriously stepped out in the middle of a meeting.....and then returned...soon after, Reeves was released ( they told him they wanted to move on but asked that he coach the rest of the year and he refused and asked for his release)....soon after McKay got his release from TB and was hired by us..all of this happend withing like a week
  18. No...they took his base salary and converted it to signing bonus...there was no pay cut...its just going to balloon our cap hit next year No, thats why you put in a no trade clause and increase his base for 2023..he gets the money back in 2023. His base is only 20 million in 2023.. make it 30, which will still be well below market value..and guaranteed....i could be wrong...cap guru's could say if i'm right or not
  19. Desperate people do desperate things... I think if they would have fired DQ a year earlier, we wouldnt be in the cap situation we are in.... DQ and TD were fighting for their jobs so their moves the last couple of years was an all or nothing thing
  20. I like what he has done..I just think maybe he should have not started talking about listening to trades so soon....after Matt's Restructure his cap hit is going to be enormous next year, and with a JJ trade and another 15mill cap hit from him we may be in the same position next year..
