    Tandy reacted to JayOzOne in Schultz: Falcons’ Arthur Smith on Julio Jones: ‘I don’t worry about players I never coached’ - The Athletic   
    I told my wife that the ultimate in lazy questions is asking something when you already know what the answer will be. My best example was when Barbara Walters "scooped" a Robert Blake interview when he was still locked up pre-trial. ABC News advertised it with the same thing for a week: "Did you kill your wife?" Nobody who watched the interview thought he would say that he did and true to form, he swore he was innocent in spite of a crapload of evidence to the contrary.
    I loved it when, upon acquittal, he made a point to thank Barbara Walters for helping him convince people he was not a murderer. If you know the answer, either rephrase the question in a way to get a different answer don't ask it. I can't stand lazy journalists.
    Regarding the Falcons, if you follow Falcons Twitter, every day you'll have dozens of questions that you'd like the answers to that never get asked. This is only worse when half the press pool wants to know if Julio is going to be at mini-camp.

    He has unbelievable talent.   With Arthur Smith and his experience using TE in the game - this guy has no limit

    Yeah, it just kills me how they do this over and over.   Like - Oh I'm sorry if this has been asked, I had technical difficulties getting on - or I was late joining.    BS!   They just want to ask the same lame, tired questions that take up the bulk of the interview, leaving us with so many unanswered good questions about those things that actually are going on with the Falcons.
    It's always this way.   Sad, lazy and unprofessional in my mind.   All they want is some juicy tidbit they can twist into a storyline to cause more dissention in the team and the fans - and give them more gossip and crap to write about in the process.

    Man, I'd love it if just once, he'd tell the reporters "We have a lot of fans who are more interested in how the Falcons are shaping up than the Titans. Asking me the same question 10 different ways seems like a lazy way to spend media availability. Especially when you already know the answer".
    Let the national media dig into the trade. If you're a Falcons media writer and you can only ask the same **** question as everybody else (and that you asked at the last press conference), you're doing it wrong.

    Yeah Houston, Grady, Jurrell and Fowler should be able to bring some heat in our 4-2 nickel sets. Can still blitz backers and DBs on 5 or 6 man rushes.

    Tandy reacted to dirtybirds233 in Next Gen Stats - Matt Ryan Under Pressure   
    Passer rating: 82.3
    Completion percentage: 56.1%
    CPOE: +4.5%
     
    Ryan is remarkably consistent in how he operates under pressure. After landing in the seventh spot on this list in 2019, Ryan returns in the same position in 2020 but with slightly better numbers. Ryan's passer rating and CPOE under pressure were both better in 2020 than they were in 2019 (thank you, Calvin Ridley), but Ryan faced more pressures (189; third-most in the NFL) than any other passer on this list. It's worth noting Ryan also attempted more passes under pressure than anyone else here (148; third most in the league), but the latter of those two facts actually makes his production even more impressive. His TD-INT ratio (6:4) could've been better, but those six TDs made him the only quarterback to have at least six scores through the air versus pressure in each season since 2016. The only other quarterbacks to have even three such seasons in that span are Tom Brady and Ryan Tannehill. And Ryan's CPOE (+4.5%; fifth-best in the NFL) and total completions under pressure (83; second-most in the league) tell us most of what we need to know: Everything can be crashing to the ground around him, and Ryan is still going to stand tall amid the chaos and deliver. Falcons fans hope a busy offseason will combine with that fact to produce a better result for their team in 2021. History suggests Ryan will hold up his end of the bargain.
