    For an old guy, I stay fairly active. I played football in HS, but frankly
    was just too small to be effective (5'6") at much of anything. So, I
    swam competitively and ran competitively. Played
    intramural ball in college. Today, triathlons, as much as I can. I'm
    a pretty good long distance swimmer, and run fairly well for my age.
    Nobody looks good in those damned spandex biking shorts!!! Well,
    other than this one woman that I tend to follow (not terrible, looking
    up at her *** for 50+ miles)... Yes, that's definitely an interest!

    Also, while I grew up in surburbs of Atlanta and lived there until
    2005, I relocated down to the center of the state on Lake Sinclair.
    Now, lots of swimming, boating, floating, drankin', and watching
    the Falcons on TV...

  1. Also notice that the closer the analysis is to the Falcons, the more they hype-up that we're likely to take a QB. I think this is the set-up for a trade on one of those 7, 8, or 9 teams who otherwise might sit back or not want to give as much for a trade-up deal.
  2. More than anything else I'm reading the tea-leaves of who we're letting go and who we're keeping. We'll never know the details of why, but we can see what. I think we'll look high in the draft for defense backfield and at running back. I dont think there's a chance in hades we select a QB. We might trade with a 7, 8, or 9 team so that they insure they get Fields.
  3. I think this and some other moves give us a hint at what they're thinking in the head office particularly as we head towards the draft. There was a recent mock draft out that had us trading down to 9th and picking Surtain there, then later trading up to pick up Najee Harris. I'm not sure how far off that was...
  4. Many of us tend to over-think a first draft pick and I certainly have fallen victim to the over-analysis sinkhole. I think there's lots of risk drafting the 4th QB especially at a time where he's most likely to be warming the bench most of the year. The simplest approach is to choose the best-overall player, and in this case I'm with the majority of folks thinking Pitts is that guy. Plus, new coaches especially need as many play-makers out on the field as they can get, and Pitts would be on the field and he is a proven play-maker, while a QB pick sits and learns (with any luck). I think
  5. I'm just trying to get the attention of a web site person. Home page and others still reference "NEW UNIFORMS".
  6. You thought of him as a journalist or reporter? That's not his job. He was a PR guy, plain and simple. I thought he did a fairly good job putting lipstick on a pig.
  7. Arguably there's probably 6 QB's who all could be first rounders. I'm thinking we'll pick somewhere else, and if one of those 6+- is still around come our second pic we're more likely to grab someone then.
  8. Please, please, please get Najee. ****, if Etienne is available at 36, grab him too, but I dont think either of these guys will make it past 20.
  9. IMHO we should be 4-1; we have the talent. I've seen years when we had nearly no talent except for maybe 4 players total and yet the team found a way to manage a win or two because they didn't want to lose; they refused to lose, even though they really didnt have the talent... This team is extremely talented and deep with talent. Yet, it's acceptable to be 0-5. And, this isn't H/S or college. These guys are professionals. They make millions of dollars at their chosen profession, and yet losing is acceptable. I like Dan Quinn; who doesn't?!?! But, he, Dirk, McKay, possibly anothe
  10. I'm over here thinking "this is what professionals produce"? REALLY? If I did this, on my job, making a small fraction of what these guys make, I'd be fired in a heartbeat. You see, I AM a professional, highly regarded. If I f'd up like that on-side kick, I could expect my next day at the office would be packing my bags... Seriously; where is the accountability? Do we have coaches whose #1 job is training everyone on the rules of the game? If not, then the responsibility falls on Blank and he needs to admit it, take responsibility for it, and put a few people there and hold them a
  11. I've got nearly $1,000 in jerseys and falcons garb in the closet. I re-arrange every day they play so that I can see the game in its entirity, and I've done this since 1966. I had season tickets for 16 years; ROW 1 when the GA Dome opened up; we'd high-five Dionne Sanders all the time... I will not disown the Falcons, but I'm pretty much done with this season. I'm going to get my Sunday's back. Losing because the guys on the field, and I will say yelling, PROFESSIONALS, dont know the ****ed rules of the very game they are PROFESSIONALS at and play; I'm done. Perhaps next year.
  12. For the last 6 or 8 years I've seen MANY games won or lost because a bone head or two just don't know the rules of the game. In many ways we gave away this game, but none so glaring as about 4 or 5 Atlanta Falcons who dont know the rules of the kick, in particular when the ball is in-play for the receiving team. In that case, jump on the F'ing ball! It doesn't matter who recovers it, if it hasn't gone 10 yards, it's Atlanta ball no matter what. JUMP ON THE ****IN' BALL ALREADY. So, the question is, do we have a game rules coach? If not, why not? I know every team has strength
  13. I'm not sure that Arthur honestly understands what being in the heart of SEC territory and football country really means. I mean, why doesn't the state of Alabama need an NFL team? Because they already ****ed near 2 of 'em; that's why. I'm not here to debate with you, merely to chime in further in that I think your cries will fall upon deaf ears. And, this old hard-core fan will still be a hard-core fan tomorrow, next year, and God willing for many years to come.
  14. Like you, I'm too old to relive this Rankin Smith crap... I like Quinn, but the team as a whole seemed largely ill-prepared and out-manned at nearly every turn. We had some beautiful individual performances, notably Grady and Sanu looked good. I was disappointed in #11, he seems lethargic. And Freeman; great guy but Ito is doing a helluva lot better... And the offense play calling was boring and predictable.
  15. Doug, I think you nailed it. The new guy fetching punts did a pretty good job. Grady was and is a beast. Jones looked really good; glad to have him back. I haven't seen much criticism of Freeman; he's not getting it done. MR2 looks ok, but seems to make ghastly bad decisions from time to time. O play calling; GHASTLY! WTF? Really? My daughter literally calls plays for the O in her H/S, and she does one helluva lot better than what we saw on Sunday; unbelievably predictable and uninspired. Sometimes, when it's an obvious run situation, you need to call a play-act
