  1. Poole isn’t anything special but he’s a mile better than any dback behind him. I get it that 4-6 corners aren’t going to be amazing but wow they were so bad in preseason and now in game. Kazee looks lost too. It really makes me feel thankful for Tru and Alford, they are worth every penny. We couldn’t really blitz at all.

  3. I'm done watching non-Falcons games because of this but will I stop watching my birds because of two players who aren't in my top 15? Hellz Nah! I support the 51 who Rise Up during the anthem.
  4. So Duke Riley is a replacement for Worrilow, I get it. He could also play WLB since the Will and Mike are basically interchangeable in our offense but I still think we could use Spoon if healthy. Spoon is slightly bigger and can cover TE's well. We really don't have anyone that would replace what he did last year and I thought he played as well as Campbell early in the year. I know he stays injured but when healthy he's a beast and we signed him for a team friendly deal last year and this year he would probably take the vet minimum(which counts like a rookie minimum towards the cap) this year.. Either way I love his energy and I hope he's healthy and on the field playing for someone this year. He's good for the game.

  6. I hope it works out. Even if it doesn't work out for a high dollar long term contract we get a nice compensatory pick after next year. The Patriots do this all the time.
  7. Thank God we got rid of him? He just led a top 8 offense EVER! I wish we still had him and would have loved to have seen if he could have made another jump like he did from year one to two which obviously there wasn't too much room for improvement. If players don't connect with him then why do they follow him? Even coaches have followed him. I do have high hopes for Sarkisian but unless he puts together the greatest season ever with 0 years of OC NFL experience, you will never hear me say thank God we got rid of Shannahan.
  8. No hate here, he was a great coverage guy even last year. He just wasn't that great at returning. He did have one decent season returning before he went to Chicago and we made the Pro Bowl for it. He rarely if ever fumbled. He was a captain for a reason so thank you for your service. On the flip side, he should not have returned that ball at the end of the fourth in the Super Bowl and wow we are getting younger. I do look forward to improving our return game and hopefully we have a compentent replacement in coverage.
  9. I'm glad everyone seems to be positive about this. I really like the way our secondary has developed so hopefully he can carry that over as a first time play caller. I just know that Quinn is established as elite. Maybe Quinn will override if he needs to until Manuel gets used to it.
  10. I guess but I know we improved significantly after he started calling plays and he led the number one defense two years in a row in Seattle and while still good, they haven't been number one in either year since.
  11. This isn't really anything new. This is what they were already planning to do. We didn't see it as much simply because Collins was suspended to start the year and Tru got injured. However, Alford was always the starter opposite Tru when in base defense. He just slid over when in nickel or dime.
  12. #Falcons DC Marquand Manuel will call the defense, Quinn said. pic.twitter.com/CRSz0F9rqm — D. Orlando Ledbetter (@DOrlandoAJC) March 1, 2017 Hopefully he's great at it but my instant reaction was
  13. He must have been part of the active roster at the end of the year.
  14. If you get the compensation in return, sure. I'd trade Matt Ryan for 8 first round draft picks. Tru won't hurt the cap if traded so it does make a trade ideal but only if the offer is right because he and Beasley are the best defenders we have. I would have to see a top 10 pick or a 1st and a 2nd unless his contract demands are so high that it doesn't make sense to pay that much. Putting Alford at nickel with Collins and Tru on the outside is going to make this pass D sick. Tru and and improved Rocky will also help when in base.
