  1. I've loved that name since I was very small. Good interview. Seems like a very nice man.
  2. Any time a team scores a touchdown in the 4th quarter, the head coach should ask if it makes sense to go for two. The coach should at least ask himself the question, and hey, that's what those little point tables are for. (You can extend this to a TD in late 3rd, if you like, but not before in my opinion.)
  3. Anyone remember these games? November 2010 against Ravens. https://www.pro-football-reference.com/boxscores/201011110atl.htm January 2013 in Divisional Playoffs against Seahawks. https://www.pro-football-reference.com/boxscores/201301130atl.htm In each of those games we scored a touchdown around the beginning of the 4th quarter and chose to go for 1 instead of 2. In both games, the opponent came back in the 4th quarter to take the lead by a single point.
  4. Is this amateur hour? I want our new head coach showing up at the Branch with a Super Bowl ring on each hand. Those are the kind of credentials that bring instant credibility. If the Seahawks get rolled, I know many of you rooting for the Patriots will be complaining that Quinn's defense couldn't get it done and we should have hired Bowles. Boggle.
  5. It is an annoyance, but the most important thing is to hire the right head coach, the guy you think will be a great coach here for the next 15 years. Good coordinators come and go, great head coaches stay. I'd hate it if the Falcons compromised at this point.
  6. I was rooting for the Seahawks to win the Super Bowl even before Quinn was indicated as our #1 target. (What Schefter says, I believe.) I'm hoping that Quinn shows up at the Branch on Feb 2nd or 3rd with the credibility and winning experience that comes with two Super Bowl rings. And as soon as the press conference is over, he can start telling Dimitroff and Pioli what defenders on the roster actually belong in the NFL.
  7. I had no problem with kicking a FG at the end of the first half. Doesn't anyone here remember what happened to the Saints and the Seahawks at the end of the first halves last year? Both teams weren't able to kick a field goal because the clock was running and they had no timeouts. And doesn't anyone here remember what happened when we got aggressive against the Packers in the 2010 playoffs by passing the ball instead of playing for field goals? Two picks by Tramon Williams, one for a touchback (thanks Jenkins) and one for a crushing pick-six. BTW, we were at the 21 yard line (for a 38 yard
  8. OK, here's the scenario, straight from the gamebook. We're down 23-17 and we start the drive at our 20 with 3:12 left and two timeouts. The Saints have one timeout. Four straight completions and we have 1st and 10 at the Saints 27 at the two-minute warning (actually 1:58). I'll paste the gamebook entries in here... 1-10-NO 27 (1:58) J.Rodgers left guard to NO 27 for no gain (C.Lofton). 2-10-NO 27 (1:34) (Shotgun) M.Ryan pass short left to H.Douglas to NO 7 for 20 yards (K.Vaccaro). P18 1-7-NO 7 (1:09) (Shotgun) M.Ryan pass incomplete short left to H.Douglas. 2-7-NO 7 (1:05) (Shotgun) M.Ryan pa
  9. Konz got abused on that final play. Three-man rush and five OL plus Rodgers in protection, and Ryan was pressured heavily. The guy came up the middle from two yards off the line of scrimmage and whipped Konz with a swim move. Blalock and Reynolds had to come back inside to help but the damage was already done. Baker and Holmes were both reeling too. I knew before the game that the OL was an area of concern. Now we're just finding out exactly how concerned we should be.
  10. If we win the Super Bowl, Dimitroff can trade away our first rounders for the next 10 years and draft my six-year-old nephew. I will not complain.
  11. Fox wants the most appealing matchup for that Saturday night primetime game. And so they'll put San Fran at Green Bay in that slot if that's the matchup. Huge ratings for them.
  12. My best guess right now, assuming the seeds stay as they are, is Saturday, January 12 at 4 p.m. I believe the divisional round telecasts are a 4 p.m. and an 8 p.m. game on Saturday and 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. (or whatever) on Sunday. And I believe there's usually one game for each conference on each day. Well if it ends up being #3 New England at #2 Denver, that would almost certainly be the Saturday night primetime game, and I bet Fox would love San Fran / Green Bay for the late game on Sunday. That puts us into the early game on Saturday, whenever that is. Again, just a guess. But let's bea
  13. If you recall, the Schaub trade happened in late March 2007. A few days before the draft in April 2007, the dog-killer's cousin takes the cops to the house with the dogs out back. If that incident happened a couple months earlier, there's a good chance Schaub is our QB right now.
