  1. I am pulling for this guy.
  2. Just watched the clip he hit 20!! Dude is too fast for a TE. He’s got real potential to be a game changer.
  3. I'd do it. He's got talent. If this thread asked if you would trade a 3rd for him, people would be up in arms and say a 4th. Instead it asks about a 4th, and people say a 5th. It's the barter mentality. A 4th for him, let Hooper walk, and we don't miss a beat. He would contribute this year more than any 4th round pick we draft more than likely.
  4. I've been saying this for the last two years. We(fans/media) romanticize the QB at the end of his career. It's been that way since I was a kid in the 90's. We're not far from Ryan being the active leader in almost every category and then in his final years he will be a media darling.
  5. It's going to take an incredibly well written piece in the Athletic or something at this point.
  6. Just want us to get rid of the all white uniforms and those stupid sleeves.
  7. Man, at this point I'm just here for @ya_boi_j's videos in his sig.
  8. The only one I hate to see go is Neal. It's emotion and not rational though.
  9. This is what I'm starting to think too. Let's say Matt Ryan has a 4 year window. We spend 1-2 years getting acclimated to something else, letting them build the team to have a shot. At this point the cards are on the table, lets see if this staff, and this roster can make it happen. If not, their jobs(Quinn, TD, Mckay) all expire with Matt Ryan's.
  10. Never understood this mentality.
  11. Look at our first play of the game Thursday. Start with 1 back who goes in motion leaving an empty backfield and IIRC, no tight end on the end. We went clear pass with no help to the line. We know we have a weak line that gives no time to make more than 2 progressions. Why are we sending 5 players out on routes?
  12. Until something changes, we need to draft running backs in the 3rd and 4th rounds and run them into the ground and move on. If they do what Freeman did and look like they're about to be top 5 paid at the end of the rookie contract, trade em and move on.
  13. Also, sure we can attribute Ryan's 2016 success to the system of Shanahan, but he excelled in the system. Much better than any other QB KS has had. So what do we do? Do we try to keep LaFleur and promote from within for consistency? No. We go all the way to left field to bring in Sarkisian, and then follow that up with DK. Matt Ryan has his faults, no question about that. But if you look at the decisions that have been made by this franchise, what success we've had has been in spite of them, not because of them. From Dan Quinn to Dimitroff(Or McKay), the decision making has been poor.
  14. 2 of his 4 seasons have been statistically fantastic. His "subpar" seasons have both been first years with new coordinators(2017 with Sark, and 2019 with Dirk). Let's not forget that that prior to getting injured in week 7 against the Rams, he was leading the league in touchdowns and yards. Meanwhile we continually to field bottom 5 defenses( the defense in 2 of 3 seasons since 2016 have been statistically subpar ).
