  1. One time for this great suffering city. Focus. Make it happen. Who cares if this season will likely end up with an asterisk. The heck with 2016 and LI. That’s long over. Get it together as one mind and get it done! One time Falcons!!!
  2. Yeah, the Patriots just LOVE signing locker room distractions lol. How the heck are you blaming our pi** poor defense on a high-caliber vet who never played defense?
  3. Once again, I think it comes to balance. When you throw at a 2/1 ratio, you are off balance. But it's not a 0 or 1 decision. When you ask your OL to hold to long, you're asking for turnovers. But OTOH, when it seems you are only throwing "dig/stick" routes like under Mularkey, you're not going to get the YAC you need to be explosive. I LOVE deep balls. But they work WAY better in tandem with play action. So if you haven't earned the right to throw deep by having a legitimate threat in the running game, you're not going to be very successful. So, to point out a few things about o
  4. You don't need all those stats. The guy generally has a 2/1 pass run ratio. That is out of balance. Period.
  5. I'm thinking he's been a 2-time NFL OC and an NFL Head coach and he sounds like he's just now figuring this out?
  6. I think considering the deal as a whole and what we lost for a backup, it was not good. Likely Pro Bowl player leaves AND we lose our 2nd round pick? Makes no sense whatsoever to me. I hope Graham is ready.
  7. Yeah, nobody can cover that guy. He darn near ran Trufant off the field that game when he got injured in 2016.
  8. Some people can't leave well enough alone. They get impatient. Or maybe because of cap restrictions and having to let players walk, they try to fit a square peg in a round hole. It's weird too because with Quinn his defense is based on simplicity, familiarity, and reaction time. The better you know something the faster you play. But he did the exact opposite at the start of this season.
  9. fwiw, I posted a topic here that Shanny was the best OC we ever had 5 games into his FIRST season (look it up if you don't believe). That being said, he's gone. He ain't coming back. And after he botched the end of 51, most were ready to run him out on a rail anyway. It's best to move on.
  10. Eugene Vick Shanny Man...this franchise just has bad luck or karma or something when we start to get close to the pie.
  11. He totally understands situational football. His mindset is to IGNORE it. That is both his strength and weakness. It's why he is so unpredictable as a play caller. And it's also why he botched the end of 51.
  12. He's gonna be asked this question so many times the next two weeks he won't be able to HELP himself thinking back about it. The media is relentless when they see a chink in the armor.
  13. 22.4% rushing percentage? Can that possibly be correct? That's less than 1 in 4. TERRIBLE.
  14. I'm seeing this as a repeating problem with Quinn. Asking people to do things they simply aren't good at. Person/Garland flip flopped, Beasley in drop zone, Kazee at nickel, Rashid Morris coaching WRs while our DBs are horrendous, guys at nose that are simply too small, trying to run a 3-4 type look with 4-3 talent. He tinkers and not often in a good way.
  15. That bears out what I was thinking. I'd take Hooper over and TE with a name not starting with a "K".
  16. It does if they don't stop it. How many plays IN A ROW did San Fran run it on that drive that put the game away Saturday. 10 or 11? Have we EVER run the ball 11 times in a row since Jam was here? There have been games where Belichek ran the ball 40 times.
  17. I agree. I thought so when he was here.
  18. Yeah, scheme. Like a team that actually RUNS the football and goes to the NFCCG. Unlike our sit at home in January, 2/1 pass/run ratio BS. There was nothing wrong at all with Garland's run blocking. He was kind of a mauler and played to the echo of the whistle. He was tenacious. I'm glad he found a team that appreciates that. Sorry, I'm just a little testy right now that our ex OC and ex QB coach (who was too "inexperienced" to keep as OC) are facing off in the NFCCG and we're stuck with "7 step drop Dirk". Gross mismanagement top to bottom.
  19. If it came down to Hooper or Mack, I'd let Mack walk and look to grab a C/G in the draft or move someone. Mack is on the way down (or out), Hooper on the way up. You don't get better by losing your soon to be pro-bowlers. I absolutely would look to trade/cut Beasley, Campbell, and Trufant.
  20. I remember saying this exact thing to my father in 1983 when Bartkowski was in his twilight and sacked for the umpteenth time. His exact quote was "You think so, huh"? Nearly 40 years later this still has not proven true. The fact is, great pocket QBs always have SOME mobility. There is a big difference in mobile and scrambling/running. Scrambling QBs have NEVER been successful consistently at the highest level in the NFL. NEVER. Tarkenton, Flutie, Cunningham, Vick, Newton. ZERO Lombardis. Only Steve Young has one, albeit with a great support cast. Whereas, QBs who always look to th
  21. Good teams don't let go of homegrown players still on the rise. If Hooper had peaked and was on the decline, or had injury issues, or if we even had a capable replacement, it'd be different. But the answer to all those "ifs" is a clear NO. He's top 5 at the position, getting better every year, and actually Matt's favorite target. We'd be fools to let him go.
