  1. Good pickup. Our offense is looking pretty good right now, just need the defense to make some improvements and we should be pretty decent this year. Geaux Saints!
  2. Hopefully you were able to get tickets in the Cowboys section of the GA dome. The Steelers section can get pretty rowdy - you don't want to sit there week after week.
  3. Falcons. Historically, presently, futurely. I realize the South's been around awhile now, but the Panthers and Bucs are still too new on the schedule for me really to give a crap about them. Honestly, I wish the 49ers were still in the division - got years of payback coming to them.
  4. No rain here. I think you misread what I wrote - I am not saying Grant did or did not do anything, all I was responding to was some guy saying that Vick had 'allegedly' killed dogs and that Vick and Grant's situations were exactly the same at this point. If Grant is guilty of anything, I hope the judge or jury finds him that way and he pays the consequences. I would say this about anybody.
  5. Actually, it's not even close to the same thing. Charles Grant has been indicted for involuntary manslaughter. That means a grand jury wants to question him on suspicion of being involved in a matter. That's as far as we are right now. He has allegedly been involved in something - someone has indicated him in a crime. Vick is in jail. He was indicted by a grand jury and then agreed to plead guilty in return for the DA's suggestion of leniency to the court. There is nothing alleged about Vick's legal situation right now. By the way, the Falcons' fans were rougher on Vick than any rival ever was. Well, maybe not ANY rival, but the vast, vast majority. Just calling him "YKW" or "Voldemort" or whatever instead of Micheal Vick is indictment enough of the Falcons' fanbase.
  6. That's good advice considering all the rivals who come on hear and attack YKW for allegedly killing dogs! Vick pled guilty. Vick. Pled. Guilty. This means he admits to doing it. Most of TATF has accepted that he did it, time to get on board WFW. Nonetheless, I am amazed at how restrained the RC crowd is so far on this topic.
  7. Oh well - was hoping he might be able to suit up for us, but I think most of us realized what we were getting in Morgan. No one was counting on Morgan to start or even contribute on many snaps. Our LBs are still an improved bunch with the addition of Vilma and the upgrades on the line.
  8. Pure football is full of elitist and snobs, TAFT is whacked out, RC is the place to be. Talk some football and put your rivals in their place...where would you rather be than right here, right now? Nearly 2,000 places spring to mind, but as far as the Falcon's messageboard goes, this is the place to be. By the way - anyone playing Goal Line Blitz? That site is addictive as ****.
  9. Finally, a new topic to discuss. /sarcasm
  10. So what QB are you guys targeting in 09'? None, besides with the 32nd pick in the draft we'll end up waiting until the later rounds. Another little note: Guess what SEC school has had a player selected in the NFL draft every year since 1970 but DID NOT have one selected this year?
  11. Nice game - congrats on the win. As a Saints' fan, I am accustomed to pulling for the underdog Awesome to see Goliath staggered, hope to see him slain. Even if the part of David is played by Atlanta
  12. The Saints gave up a lot? How so? The seventh pick was worth 1500 points on the draft trade chart. The tenth pick was worth 1300 points. Our 3rd round pick, #78 was worth exactly 200 points. So, an even trade would have been our #10 and #78 for the Patriots #7. But WE GOT an extra pick from the Patriots, #164. So, we gave up less than their pick was worth. And with that pick from NE, we took Carl Nicks, a huge steal by all accounts. I think the Saints did the right thing getting Ellis at #7 and they screwed the Bengals who wanted him dearly! I wish the Saints would've jumped to #2 and taken Dorsey who we were not going to take all along...and that would've been our buyout clause if Ryan fails since dorsey would've been no longer available! You are incredibly concerned about looking silly when/if this Ryan thing doesn't pan out, and with reason. IF he doesn't pan out, your fanbase is going to absolutely implode. He has until Vick gets out of jail to win a superbowl. I figured the Falcons were going to take Dorsey but had my fingers crossed that Ryan was going to be the pick. Honestly, I almost cheered as loud for the Falcons' pick of Ryan as I did for the Saints jumping up for Ellis. I think all 4 teams had decent drafts. The Panthers' moves puzzled me a lot - for the same reasons that have been mentioned already. The Falcons did a little too much trading around for my tastes as well. How many picks did you have when the draft started? How many guys did you end up with? 5th round and up "steals" don't impress me until they actually make the team and get into the game. The Saints had a couple of those "steals" this year I am your team did as well. I'll wait til midseason to start patting the Saints' FO's back on those picks. Did anyone see the ESPN coverage of the draft? (I flipped between both) Berman, Young and the whole crew looked positively forlorn when the Saints actually picked at #40. I wonder if they didn't want the Shockey trade to occur more than the Saints and Giants did. Was a really weird reaction by the crew.
  13. Not A Falcon fan SO I want them to pick Ryan... Fixed it for you. Same sentiments here.
  14. I spit my beer out the first time I saw "Tampon Gay #####inqueer." What a brilliant bastardization of every single syllable.
  15. This has been the most boring offseason in quite some time. At least on our end. I imagine that getting a new coach and a potential star running back has the Falcon faithful at least somewhat excited.
  16. I will end up being surprised if the Saints don't jump to 2, 5 or 7 in the draft. I just hope we don't pay too much. Not that we have a history of making bad decisions in trading up in the draft. *cough* Sullivan *cough* Williams *cough*
  17. Yeah, I noticed that when I was writing it. Either you are disagreeing or checking your eyesight - which is it? Both... I hope we dont go O-line, I'm still prayin for Mike Jenkins. But that jus me thou:D Jenkins would be a good pick as well. I have him going much higher - cornerbacks and DTs are going to be in higher demand after the contracts they have been demanding and receiving lately. Better to grab one in the draft and lock them up for 4-6 years than to have to find one in the open market three years from now and have to make the decision "cover corner, or pay the electric bill this month?" In my opinion, of course. What are your other picks? Looking for a 1st round draft board like the one I laid out. Give us something to compare later on while we laugh at each other and call each others' draft picks "busts," "huge disappointments," and "incredible reaches" while trumpeting the inevitable pro-bowl caliber FB we picked up in the 6th. The day after the draft ends is the beginning of the Homeristic Season. Everybody has something to say about something they won't know anything about for years to come. Just trying to add something that we can look at immediately and objectively and tell who was right or wrong without having to wait 3 years (or whattever the waiting period is these days) for a draft pick to pan out.
  18. I ended up as the Panthers' GM in a mock draft recently - Ryan Clady was available at 12, so was Williams. Would you prefer Clady over Williams? Why or why not? -I chose Clady in the draft, almost came down to a coin flip though. (grabbed Flacco for you in the second)
  19. Yeah, I noticed that when I was writing it. Either you are disagreeing or checking your eyesight - which is it?
  20. Dolphins - Jake Long, OT - Michigan Rams - Vernon Gholston, DE - tOSU Falcons - Glenn Dorsey, DT - LSU Raiders - Chris Long, LB - Virginia Chiefs - Ryan Clady, OT - Boise State Jets - Darren McFadden, RB - Arkansas Pats (from 49ers) - Leodis McKelvin, CB - Troy State Ravens - Matt Ryan, QB - Boston College Bengals - Sedrick Ellis, DT - USC Saints - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB - Tennessee State Bills - Mike Jenkins, CB - USF Broncos - Chris Williams, OT - Vanderbilt Panthers - Derrick Harvey, DE - Florida Bears - Rashard Mendenhall, RB - Illinois Lions - Jeff Otah, OT - Pittsburgh Cardinals - Jonathan Stewart, RB - Oregon Vikings - Phillip Merling, DE - Clemson Texans - Keith Rivers, LB - USC Eagles - Limas Sweed, WR - Tejas Bucs - Branden Albert, G - Virginia Redskins - Kenny Phillips, S - Miami Cowboys (from Browns) - Kentwan Balmer, DT - UNC Steelers - Malcolm Kelly, WR, Oklahoma Titans - James Hardy, WR - Indiana Seahawks - Gosder Cherilus, OT - Boston College Jaguars - DeSean Jackson, WR - California Chargers - Aqib Talib, CB - Kansas Cowboys - Reggie Smith, S, Oklahoma 49ers (from Colts) - Quentin Groves, DE - Auburn Packers - Devin Thomas, WR - Michigan State Giants - Dan Conner, LB - Penn State In a perfect world, Atlanta will skip Dorsey and grab Matt Ryan. Fingers crossed that Dimitroff has never seen Ryan play and mkaes that move.
  21. For the RC crowd - pick the first round of the NFL draft. Show everyone you're not a total window licker and can cut and paste the latest Kiper dream draft board into the Falcons messageboard. Extra points for correctly predicting the NFC South. Points are not redeemable, transferrable, or even worthwhile.
  22. The other half don't have computer's 2 read it on. As usual hardly any Saints fans around in the offseason...the only come around when they win a couple of games!:hehe: I lurk here every day. Between the normal idiocy and the brand new apostrophe wielding #####, this forum has become unreadable. I refuse to wade through a page and a half of worthless bumps and "Don't bump" bumps to see if I have missed anything worth talking about. I generally assume I haven't missed anything. Having said that, I will start a draft thread in 3...2....1
  23. Do you work in the media? LSU won the BCS Championship, therefore - national champs. (dollar says if GA had "split" with USC, you'd have had Georgia Champs written there... ) And, as for the original poster - it is obvious that he gets off on offense - and that's cool. Defense wins championships though and the SEC has defense in spades. SEC >>> your conference. Even Brent Musberger is starting to agree.
  24. Looks like they banned a guy for trying to make sure he had the last post in every thread.
  25. Sucks to see that "reading the whole post" has not really caught on yet. Good post Daniel Chosen. Too bad 50% of the respondents missed the joke.
