  1. I honestly don't care who we take at 4 or if we trade down. We can't go far wrong (on draft night) in my eyes, of course who we take may not turn out how we hoped, but that's for a different day. Without doubt the biggest problems with this team is we cannot run the ball (Matt had the most 1st down passes I believe) and we cannot get off the field on 3rd down. Over the timespan of the past 3 years we must be bottom 5 in both? Or at least it seems like it 🙂 If we can get a middle of the pack running attack and a middle of the pack defence, then I believe that we make the play-offs this year. We
  2. Whilst it does hurt us a little, it still only takes one team to decide that is the player we must have. For this discussion let’s say that we want to move down and Denver wants QB4. Even though Denver doesn’t have to jump Carolina anymore they still have to watch out for someone jumping them. Reports are Det wants to move down and I wouldn’t be shocked if Car are now open to that idea to get a pick or 2 back, so teams like NE, Chi, Wash etc have landing spots above Denver. If Denver truly wants QB4 then I feel that they still have to move up to get him and going to 4 is the only place th
  3. Of course there are a lot of unknowns but my best guess is if they don’t take a QB this year then they probably won’t take one next year either unless Matt drops off a cliff and we are picking top 5 again or they just don’t like the QBs this year after the first 3 are (probably) taken? I don’t think that you pass on the QB for the sake of 1 year if you like him and I don’t think that you take a QB if you believe the guy you have is good for 2 years plus, unless there’s a plan to trade him. If they don’t take the QB then I’d expect them to plan ahead and I’d be looking for them to get extra dra
  4. The question to me was never do they like these QBs, it's do they like Matt. Do they think Matt can lead the offense for the next 3 years or so. Right now we have no idea if Matt can play for another 3 years at a high level in the AS scheme. If AS thinks he can then we don't take a QB at 4. If they take a QB then to me AS is basically saying I'm stuck with Matt because of the cap and I'll move on from him as soon as I can. This isn't a NE situation where their starting QB is on a 1 year deal, so someone could sit for a year and everyone knows who's starting in 2022.
  5. I watch the highlight vids and a few games. During the games I follow the ball, not once have I watched all 58 snaps of the middle linebacker to see if he read the play and was in position had the ball come his way. But like most fans, I do have the `this is what I would do' button in my brain. I can tell everyone that 90% of the time, they don't do what I would do and not once I have gotten sad or angry. However I do shower in gold the other 10% of the time 😁😁
  6. Or we could have told them our price and SF just chose Miami, or we thought 12 is too far a drop and our trade back players are top 10, or we only trade on Tuesdays? the only thing that is clear right now is that nothing is clear.
  7. Honestly not a clue 😁 however talking QB trade, teams like Car or Den (if they want a QB) might have been thinking there's a chance no QBs get taken by teams 3 to 7, so there's a chance one of top 4 might fall to us, so we'll see how it pans out on draft night, which means they'd might not have made a move at the 4 spot? Now if QBs do go 1,2,3 then I'd guess that the 4th doesn't make it to 8 or 9, so their trigger finger might just be itching to go quicker?
  8. The only think this proves is there are 3 players in this draft who they think is worth making this move for!!! They have zero control of who goes 1st and 2nd. They have zero control of any team 4 to 32 trading up into the top 2. You might have one guy in mind but you have to have 3 that you would be delighted to take. This move has nothing to do with us.
  9. At the moment we are a 4-12 team that blew 3 games when we had a 95%+ chance of winning. 0-16 takes on a completely new face. I believe that If you go 0-16 then there's probably not a lot you like about your team unless you were losing 42-38 or 6-3 each week, then you might be happy with one side of the ball?? However chances are the team is just bad all round, so I wouldn't argue too much if the new front office went into full reboot mode.
  10. Not a great answer I know, but because I have zero idea where they want to take the team, It would take something completely stupid for me to complain with this draft. I'm intrigued more than anything. However if I'm running things with the little real info that I have, then I'm taking Pitts at 4 or Surtain if we can trade down and Pitts is gone, of course being a month out, my mind will change 10 or 15 times. When's the next Pro day 🙂
  11. Nobody should be safe, but teams give contracts on people who they believe at the time will be a productive player for the team. They've made the decision that they expect Matt to be good enough for the next couple of seasons, As with all players, time will tell if they've made the correct decision. I think that this was the best way forward out of a difficult COVID Cap situation but I'm happy to admit I know 20% of what AS/TF know, so even if I disagreed with them on some things and I'm sure that I will, I'm happy to see how it plays out 🙂
  12. To me the only way we move up in this draft to get a QB is if they take the hit and trade Matt. Otherwise it's just madness
  13. I'm sure come draft time teams will have a decent idea of what we want to do QB or not. I'm sure phone calls will happen before the draft to see how keen we are to move out of 4, either up or down. As for showing interest, we should, whether that's because we want to take one now or we want to take one in the next couple of years and are using these to compare future draft classes. Maybe they want someone to jump us so that QBs go 1,2,3 and we can have the pick of the non QB class? So many unknowns at this stage, but I'm sure it'll become a little clearer closer to the draft???? They have said
  14. Arthur Blank: So what are your plans to win now and make that winning sustainable? AS/TF: We’re going to take a QB at 4 and let him sit for 2 years AB: What if Matt does well in your scheme and we don’t need a QB to step in in 2023? Don’t you think that a playmaker at 4 or maybe moving down to get extra talent might help us in a playoff run? I’m sure Green Bay could have used that 1st rounder this season??? AS/TF: We don’t anticipate getting anywhere close to the Playoffs, so we are not concerned about that. AB: Well, if you are sure that we can’t win with Matt, then can’t
  15. Maybe???? The real person who Matt Ryan made the Falcons job so attractive for was Dean Pees? Maybe????
  16. Well I guess that's one way of getting the team moved to London. Jax fans will run them out of town
  17. Yeah, I'm happy to admit that I have no clue what happens down at FB but I can almost guarantee that AS/TF didn't get the job by saying we'll take a QB at 4 and win 6 or 7 games with Matt this year.
  18. I just don't understand the take a QB at 4 and let him sit. What's the plan with that? Win 5 games this year, so he can take over in 2022 or if we do win waste his rookie contract? To me neither of those is a good plan!! If they take a QB at 4 that is telling me that they don't believe that they can be a Playoff team with Matt under centre and if they don't believe they can win with Matt then get him out of here ASAP for as much as possible. Just take the hit. Otherwise, like others have said, I'm looking to get draft ammunition for the future, so that I can move around the board to get a
  19. I'd like to have Denver call and take 9, 40 and next years 2nd and then take a top tier CB
  20. First of all, I hope that it is a late 1st round pick.. A very late 1st rd pick. But if it's me and I decide that I don't need a QB for a couple of years then I'd try to make sure that the year I did need to draft one then I'd have gotten myself a little extra draft ammunition to be able to move around the board. I'd plan for now and the future.
  21. AS/TF either think They can win with Matt under centre or they don't. If they do then you use the 4th pick to help the team win and address the QB somewhere down the line. If they don't then you take a QB and figure out how best to get Matt out of here. To me you don't have a plan to win with Matt and then take a QB to sit.
  22. Completely agree with this If we take a QB at 4 then AS is telling Matt, the locker room, the world that he doesn’t have a scheme to win with Matt and from Matts point of view, he’s seeing that the 4th pick isn’t being used to help him win a Superbowl, it's just to replace him. That’s not the start of a great HC/QB relationship and a sure locker room divider. You don’t take a QB and then plan to win with Matt over the next couple of years. That’s just wasting the 4 pick. To sit a new QB to learn for a year then surely you're planning to go 5-11, not 11-5, or should I say 12-5. 17 gam
  23. Sorry but I can't take these click bait stories seriously. Who knows what Arthur is thinking? I don't But from the quotes, The headline could have easily read. Arthur Blank looking forward to the draft, encouraged by the tremendous amount of work done by Thomas and Dan and is pleased that the Two of them share the same sense of needs and players. But I guess that isn't sexy?
  24. My head says I don't believe so, but I'm voting Yes, just because if you would have asked me before the 2008 draft if we would have 5 winning seasons I would have asked you to put the pipe down :-) Things can change quickly in the NFL.
