  1. I think our one big splash in FA will be safety Michael Griffin. We gotta upgrade. I wanted a FA LT at first but the best two IMO are Gaither and Bell and they have had injury problems in the past and are older. I would take my chances with Datko in the 2nd. He's had injuries also but he's a little younger. I think we gotta keep Abe to get that pass rush we need to help out the secondary. Hopefully Edwards steps it up too and Sid should definitely be ready next year after Abe is gone. Just think of Griffin and Moore at safety with a good pass rush.
  2. I would like to have Zimmer as DC but since they didn't keep him when they first took over, I think Tucker would be a good choice. He's been a good DC before. And I really hope we don't promote Tim Lewis to DC. I would also like Hue Jackson as OC but the same applies to him as Zimmer. But I would definitely get Tucker for DC.
  3. Another guy I would like to have is Mario Fannin.
  4. If the league does impose the 2010 system, it will be interesting to see if it brings back the "Final Eight" plan. In an uncapped year, the top eight finishers from the previous season are handcuffed in free agency: The four teams that played in the title games can sign a free agent only if they lose a free agent, and the four teams that lost in the divisional round of the playoffs can sign a player at a modest cost, roughly $3.8 million in the first year. Look at the impact on teams in search of pass-rushers. The Falcons went into the draft without free agency or trades and felt they needed t
  5. On NFL Live, an ESPN program, analyst Cris Carter thinks that the Atlanta Falcons would be the best fit for free-agent corner Nnamdi Asomugha. This is a big statement, because if it were to happen it would create all sorts of problems on the depth chart. I look for the Atlanta Falcons. They traded most of their draft picks to move up in the draft because they had a player they targeted in Julio Jones. Now they need to address their defensive needs, especially their secondary. He [Asomugha] would give them the ability to play zone coverage and man, which most teams don't have because they don'
  6. The Falcons traded their first, second and fourth-round picks in 2011 and a first and fourth in 2012 to Cleveland to move up from the #27 pick to the #6 pick to select Georgia WR Julio Jones. “I know they have great defense with (Brian) Urlacher and everybody,’’ Jones said during Game 3 of the Bulls-Hawks series in Atlanta. “It’s going to be great task for me and my teammates to see what kind of team we’re going to have. “Growing up, that was a defense I always looked up to. Even when I was little, the Chicago Bears always had a strong defense.’’ “No, I don’t feel pressure at all,’’ Jones said
  7. Yep exactly. He is better up at the LOS IMO.
  8. He played better his rookie year on the outside but didn't look good at the NB. Should we switch him and Grimes or just let Owens, Franks, and whoever else they bring in battle for the NB? Check the video from 09. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leeodGyR958&feature=related
  9. NFL | Will not shut down business if lockout lifted Thu, 12 May 2011 08:29:54 -0700 Contrary to speculation, the National Football League will not shut down business if the lockout is lifted, according to a prominent league man. Such a strategy would be considered corporate suicide. 0 Comments | Share: | Source: ESPN - Chris Mortensen

  11. Cleveland coach Pat Shurmur has every right to refer to the draft-day trade between the Browns and Falcons that netted his team five picks in exchange for the No. 6 overall selection as “probably one of the greatest trades in draft history.” Many view the trade similarly. No question the Falcons paid a high price in shipping the No. 27 overall pick, plus their fourth- and seventh-round picks this year and first- and fourth-round picks next year, to move up 21 spots to get WR Julio Jones. Ignoring snap-judgments for a moment, every trade has two sides. NFL Network analyst Daryl Johnston sees it
  12. Yep. I thought we would play that way the rest of the season. It worked good against NO.
  13. The only corner we have that really "jams" a receiver at the line is Owens. Franks wasn't a press corner at OU. Dunta has always been a press and bail corner. He doesn't "jam" the receiver either.
