  1. Dude, we lost our best player, our best pitcher and our starting left fielder who led the league in home runs last year. We have dealt with more adversity than we have had in the last 3 years and we are up 4.5 games. Stop watching if you can’t enjoy it and just want to ***** about everything you see. Seriously, it’s not worth the blood pressure increase of it’s not enjoyable. This is coming from someone who had a triple bypass in May…
  2. People on here who are complaining are not giving Clemson’s defense enough credit. It was clear the game plans coming in was all quick throws and don’t give their defensive line, which some call the best in the nation a chance to sack JT. They only had one sack, but that’s really because JT never held onto the ball except that one time. We are also missing a ton of pass catchers. We will fix the offense. And that defense has me head over heels! we won’t face a defense as good as clemsons again till the SEC Championship game most likely. Y’all see….
  3. That video was depressing and hard to watch. So many heartbreaks. I really am a masochist to keep watching this team…
  4. Because you have no faith, young Padawan.
  5. Except maybe we wouldn’t have drafted them if we listened to him.
  6. Minter has been tearing AAA up. He had 7 appearances with a 0.00 era.
  7. Mid exception is what, 9 million? I’m sure we can find a decent back up center for 9 million.
  8. This really pisses me off. If I was Trae, I would tell them to get f****d when they come calling unless those two geriatric a****les are gone or stroked out.
  9. So who’s a good back up center for us that is available and would sign a mid exception? What’s that list look like?
  10. Hawks trade Bruno, Dunn and a Second in 2023 for Tristan Thompson. Back up center for Capela while OO is out!
  11. And Sharife was at 19! Wow, how accurate is Tankathon on future projections?
  12. Alabama of the 90’s is not Saban Alabama...
  13. Descartes/Despool, still here since like 2005. The place went downhill after offers to fight at Waffle House got people banned...hahahaha.
  14. I’m really like the no nonsense apzproach to this training camp. This coach seems serious, which is what we need...
  15. Some of y’all put way too much value on a name. Repeat after me...32 year old Skill position player who spent half the season on IR. Everyone thinks we had a Ferrari when in fact that sucker was a Fiero at this point. We made out like bandits getting what we did.
  16. F that...Julio’s crapping on this franchise that has accommodated him every single time he has been disgruntled is destroying the perception of his character.
  17. https://thespun.com/more/top-stories/1-word-used-describe-falcons-price-julio-jones “It seems as though someone will have to bite on the full price if they want to land Jones. Before this year’s draft, the New Orleans Saints reportedly offered a second-round pick and the full acquisition of the receiver’s 2021 salary. That deal was obviously denied.”
  18. I just saw it was the Saints who offered us a 2nd before the draft...wow, it would take triple that to trade with those swamp rats!!
  19. No guilt tripping, I pretty much said go be a fan of another team if you think this one sucks so bad. The fact is, I’ve been a fan since 1980 and there were very few moments of excitement before Arthur Blank took over. We’ve had some lean years the last couple, but this franchise has been worlds better in the 2000’s than it’s previous history since it’s inception. And since Matt Ryan became qb we have had legitimate teams. So while we are not the Patriots, we also haven’t been Cincinnati either. So take that “poverty franchise” and pawn it off on someone else...
  20. “Poverty Franchise???” FU dude, the door is right over there, go ahead and follow Julio right through it, we don’t need “fans” like you. Tampa’s bandwagon I’m sure has room for you...
  21. Atlanta is the 7th highest media market. It’s not small. It’s not New York or LA, but it’s not Wisconsin or Buffalo either...
  22. I’m sure there will be a lot of fans who want Justin in San Fran over Mac Jones, he is looked at as having the higher ceiling/more talented prospect. Now with this latest revelation, San Fran can draft Jones and not worry about the PR of it as much.
  23. So, a couple of things: 1. we don’t know how serious the condition is, but he has played with it for some time. So he manages it. Drugs probably do have negative side effects also. 2. In the high pressure, high stress job of being an NFL starting qb, this is a red flag and could affect his draft status. Any thing, and I mean any thing that can affect job performance will be scrutinized. Teams will say all the right words, but where he goes in the draft will be the ultimate decider. 3. This is probably why San Fran is going Mac Jones and why those rumors started. They are prepping against potential backlash. 4. I still say trade down with Denver, they can get Trey Lance and at their spot we will see if Justin is still there. Im not in favor of taking a QB, but if he is there, get him.
  24. What I was able to read before it hit the paywall...it’s a tearjerker.
  25. There was a big article on him in the Athletic today. Looks like he has been training with Marquis Grissom over his off time, and was at the alternate site last year going against pitchers who were rehabbing and others who were there like Ian Anderson and Sean Newcomb and such. He really impressed down there, so much that Markakis was raving about him when he came up and told Snit all about him. Marquis was also raving about him, saying that he was basically better than the 4 that marquis was training and just got drafted last year. He said Harris had the same quality as Sheffield and Bonds and other hall of famers he had been around. Nothing seems to rattle him and he doesn’t look outmatched going against the Braves best pitchers. He could have been drafted as a pitcher with a 93 mph fastball, but his speed and hitting means he will be outfield. Marquis said he is ready for the big leagues now, even though he has only done A ball. Snitker is really high on him also, and people in the organization are thinking he will be the next big outfielder, not Waters. He rarely strikes out and has a better hitting profile apparently. His defense is really good and many think an outfield of him, Acuna and Pache will be the best defensive outfield in the majors. Lots of promise, and if he is still a prospect next year he should be in the top ten in baseball.
