  1. Yes, this article defies logic in every aspect. We have a GARBAGE defense and have no reason to think it’ll be in the top half of the NFL. Sure, it’ll be improved but an improvement I’m sure we’d all love would be within the top 20 as were usually hovering between 28-32. We just have too many question marks, we’re relying on a crew of young DBs, injury prone safeties and an entirely new nucleus of defensive players. This isn’t Madden, we can’t bring in 3-4 new players, then rely on another 3-4 that are either rookies or in their second year to gel and be the ‘85 Bears. Be realistic. If it’s anything that will kill us, it’s going to be Dirk K having a one dimensional offense and not developing long and sustained drives where we tire the opposing D out. It’ll be more of “throwing 65-70%” and having a completely gassed defense on the field trying to stop two first ballad HOF’ers. I hope I’m wrong but let’s face it, Falcons need to PROVE they can do this consistently before any of us start believing some BS homer article. Actions will speak louder than words and it’s what we deserve at this point.
  2. Worst collapse in the history of sports - nothing, literally NOTHING was worse than this. Glad we could be a part of history 🥴
  3. I love it how whenever we bring in an absolute NFL bust our homer fans come out of the woodwork and make this pie in the sky predictions. This guys never had more than 302 yards in a season, but sure he’ll go for 800 in a Falcons jersey behind three other WRs, a TE we gave up a second rounder for and Gurley outta the backfield haha. Whatever you’re smokin, I’ll take two.
  4. Right, trade down 15 picks and then get the “need”. You don’t “need” to pick someone 35 picks before they’re projected. Take the BPA if you have too. Goodness what a bonehead pick
  5. I give up on this team. We just bypassed 3 of the “top 20” best available to draft the 6th ranked CB, the 50th overall at 16. We could of traded back 10-15 spots and picked up another second rounder and still got our pick. WE ARE TERRIBLE
  6. You’re 100% right! We could of traded back 10-15 spots and got him. We draft CBs and whiff all the time, nothing new. McKinney was the pick.
  7. Sure, you can speak your goals but your sack production since entering the league has been LESS than Vic Beasley. Maybe his first goal should be “double digit sacks two years in a row”. That’s all I’m saying.
  8. I want to make a billion dollars and marry a Victoria Secret super model. words are just words....
  9. Whoever is picking at #17 will be lucky then, because we will definitely pass on the “awesome” player that falls haha.
  10. Could of just played our backups for the last 6 games of the season after we were eliminated from the playoffs and we’d be in the Chase Young sweepstakes. But in true Falcons fashion, we devastate our draft position for a second year in a row. SMH.
  11. If by “technically” you mean we have a human that can wear pads and provide a police escort directly into Matt Ryan then you’re absolutely correct.
  12. Pretty sure “cheap average talent” is the exact reason for the defense since Quinn has been the coach. Agree to disagree here.
  13. I’m chill, but let’s say we get an impact player on D at 16 (because of course we rattle off a few meaningless wins to go from top 10 to 16). We traded a 2nd rounder for a backup TE (who I think will be a stud) but that in reality puts us in a position to have one day 1 defensive starter and we still need a LG. I’m just being realistic.
  14. Hey y’all, long time Falcons fan here! Super optimistic about this year, LOVE the Gurley signing - GO DAWGS! Love the Hayden signing. Like the Fowler signing, hopefully he’s the guy he was last year and not the 4 years prior. My head scratching question is this: So we all know how horrendous the D has been under Quinn, however, outside of Fowler we’re resigning an entire defense of Falcons backups that haven’t been able to crack the consistent starting lineup of one of the worst defenses in the NFL. As I mentioned previously, I’m optimistic, but is that the homer in me talking and am I not seeing reality? If we think the likes of LaRoy Reynolds, Wreh-Wilson, Tyeler Davison who’ve been backups on our disastrous defenses will step up and take this D to the next level, it’s beyond me. Sure, it would be amazing to see a top 10 performance but it’s looking like another 30th ranked D if you asked me. Not trying to be negative, just trying to understand TD & Quinn’s logic and prepare myself for the reality of what’ll happen. Convince me otherwise.... #Insanity
  15. No tackling you say? He’ll fit right in with this defense!
  16. We will draft a CB with one of our first 3 picks, guaranteed.
  17. Nobody is calling Grady a slouch, he’s just not at Aaron Donald’s level, no other DT in the NFL is either.
  18. Agreed - he’s a stud! He’s no AD, but that’s not an insult to anyone because AD is a freak! We need to find our “Calais Campbell” next to Little Tuggle
  19. Wow, well that’s a phenomenal stat. Guess we will see how good he is not lined up next to Campbell and Aaron Donald
  20. I understand the hype and excitement but let’s be realistic here with what we’re getting in Dante Fowler. Fowler and Beasley have been in the league the same amount of years, however Beasley has 37.5 total sacks to Fowler’s 27.5. Sure, Fowler has had some injury issues but he also lined up next to Aaron Donald and Calais Campbell his entire career allowing him to run free. I hope I’m wrong but this signing reeks of desperation - we’re paying a guy $16mm a year and we let Beasley sign elsewhere for $9mm year despite having better production. My only assumption would be he’s a better locker room guy and a better leader than Beasley, being that Quinn coached him at Florida. We’ve seen these “splashes before” where we drastically overpay and it hamstrings us - I hope I’m wrong, I Hope last years Fowler is who we got, but if this ends up being another Ray Edwards, I’m going to lose my ish! I LOVE Hayden Hurst (I live in Baltimore) but I’m pretty sure this is the first time in NFL history a team has traded their second round pick for a backup tight-end. Going to be an interesting year! GO FALCONS!
  21. https://www.google.com/amp/s/sports.yahoo.com/amphtml/reports-dante-fowler-gets-48-million-deal-from-falcons-after-career-year-with-rams-192429695.html
  22. Our special teams have been garbage for the last 4-5 years. I have zero reason to believe they’ll be our “secret weapon”, we probably just need to work on being average to above average and that’s a win.
  23. Yeah, losing a 10 point lead was really nothing compared to what we experienced but it’s good to know Kyle goes “full tard” in all big game situations.
