    Maybe most talented by not the best player.  That would be Matt.

    Man...........here is where you know you were in your feelings. 
     
    The number one receiver in YPG, literally the best ever in NFL history in gaining yards per game, was mediocre in your opinion. 
     
     
     
    Once again.....I'm sorry he hurt your feelings and that you weren't able to appreciate what he was doing as just a football fan. It's gonna be a while before you see it again.

    We watched a player break record after record. He still has the highest average ypg of any receiver ever.......EVER.
     
    Some of y'all are in your feelings. Recency bias at it's extreme. What you saw........you'll never see it again in a Falcons jersey. That is as good as it is gonna be here. Somebody will do it better sooner or later but the chances of it happening in a Falcons jersey are pretty slim.
    What he did as a wide receiver here is as good as we will ever see in an Alanta Falcons jersey. Whatever it is that they do as a team he will absolutely deserve it 1000%.

    The team doesn’t retire numbers. Only ring of honor. And for that, yes. He’s ROH all the way. But for retired number? Ryan should be the first they ever do that for.

    I was just thinking that since Tennessee got Julio for a second rounder, maybe we could send them a first to get him back. They'd be crazy to turn it down.

    That was ...well terribly written.
    The falcons have not suffered from a "decade of poor drafting and cap mismanagement"
    Evaluations of TD drafts have been going on here for a decade and a half but realistically if you look at the number of players that he drafted who are either still in League or who have had long careers.....That number is as good as anybody else that you can compare them to.
    I mean if we dumped Matthews, Debo, Grady, Ridley, Lindstrom, McGary Terrell and some others today.... nearly all of them would have contracts by tomorrow because Matthews, Grady,Debo, and Lindstrom would be improvements over more than half the league for their position.
    And atlanta has not been in any worse cap shape than anyone else over that time either.
    We are not at a crossroads anymore than any other team in the league is.
    Every team is at a crossroads every year.
    It never ceases to amaze me how somehow the situation in Atlanta is always more dire than everybody else in the league no matter the situation.
    Oh Atlanta can't sign their picks without clearing space.....no mention of the other 24 or 25 teams that have to do the exact same thing.

    Captain Falcon reacted to PriMeTiiMe in How are you feeling about the Falcons secondary going into 2021?   
    Harmon/Neal is a wash. Not great, not terrible. Somewhere inbetween. Grant is hopefully >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Allen Terrell Year 2 should be better than year 1. Oliver showed down towards the end he can play effective as the Nickel and hopefully continues to improve The only thing we really need is a #2 which I would assume currently will be a training camp/preseason competition between Moreau, Sheffield and Hall if we don't sign anyone between now and then.
    Add Pees system and I would say I am about a 5 out of 10 right now. Add a solid veteran #2 CB and I'd go up to about a 7.

    Captain Falcon reacted to TheUsualStuff in Kyle Pitts said   
    I think we will be fine if we find another WR to take Julio's spot and just let Pitts abuse defenses from the TE spot in ways no other TE can do.
    We don't need to have him running Julio's routes and doing Julio things. Our offense no longer has to have that out of the Julio spot. We need to move on from our 2017 offense and embrace a new identity where we have different expectations from different positions.

    Sanu's best days were as a Falcon.
    Say what you want about Matt Ryan, dude sure does make receivers look good.  Name a receiver who looked worse in a Ryan-led offense.

    He might be. Probably our 3rd best wideout. But probably not the highest ceiling. I like the signing though.
