  1. I am literally just watching for great individual effort by any player. The team defense is awful, and I cannot take another announcer saying Julio had an uncharacteristic drop. Somebody please play with awareness and explosion.
  2. We continue to see total lack of awareness from several players. “Guarding grass” is correct. As if they are told to run to an area, then ignore the potential receivers. No one moves until after the catch. Never saw anything like it.
  3. Not saying they have so far defended the deep ball, but Watson may be forced to scramble for 50 or 60 yards when he has Beez and Takk run past him with “pressure”.
  4. Dink and dunk QB’s kill them because the Falcons pretty much concede 6 yards in every pass play. That is part of the reason for few sacks. They get rid of the ball very quickly. Not sure why there is no adjustment to that flaw in the design of this D.
  5. At this point I have to believe this is being taught. It is maddening. It makes them passive and give the edge to the offensive player to gain extra yards before and after contact.
  6. I absolutely despise the idea that someone is guilty until proven innocent. It is not good in any way. With that said, AB is crazy to harass his accuser in social media or anywhere else. That severe error in judgment is what will get him suspended. That is totally on him. Cannot blame the Pats for cutting ties now. It probably won’t get better for him any time soon. Now he is wide open to criticism from all sides. If he matures, he can have a job someday. Up to him.
  7. 50% chance “major” is referring to the toe, not the injury. If the source is DLed, he might not take the time to look up the medical term (1st Hallux). Instead he called it the Major Toe, ha. I could happen.
  8. In scientific terms it is called Confirmation bias, the tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms one's preexisting beliefs or hypotheses. You will likely confirm exactly what you thought you would find.
  9. Some camp goers are more informed than others. Thanks for the breakdown.
  10. OS, I trust the coaches and talent evaluators know what they have more than any of us outsiders. Many players will be cut between now and the season. It is entirely possible the LG is already in the team, but if he is not, there will be dozens of transactions before the roster is set. Relax and enjoy the Spring my friend.
  11. Why oh why doesn't the head coach spend more time on this message board instead of wasting time evaluating film and talking to friends that have coached players. I'm sure he has also been wasting time talking to doctors and trainers about health and rehab progress. Gosh, I sure hope Dan Quinn realizes he needs a starting LG. I bet that slipped his mind... Won't someone direct the coach to the wisdom of this message board?? My goodness, the season is almost over.
  12. Hi ballfan,

    Are you looking forward to tomorrow's season opening game? How do you think the Falcons will fare tomorrow?
