    The team is diseased. This needs more than a few amputations - it needs an exorcism.

    Changed the GM, changed the coach. Same problems today. Only leader left is the QB and that's where it all starts. Andy Reid was pretty good in Philadelphia because McNabb was pretty good. He's been amazing in Kansas City because Mahomes is amazing. Open your eyes.

    I hate that there is talk about Matt moving on from the Falcons but this about rebuilding and a different approach to winning. I think he has 5-6 years left in the tank.

    Falcons Throwback Thursday: Remembering former DE Claude Humphrey
    Reminisce about the Falcons of old, this time with a Hall of Famer.
    By Evan Birchfield@EvanBirchfield Apr 18, 2019, 3:00pm EDT Hey Falcoholics, I’m back with another edition of The Falcoholic’s Throwback Thursday series. This weekly segment highlights a former Atlanta Falcons player and discusses their life and what they did for the franchise.
    Whether you’ve been a fan since the inaugural season, or just became a fan recently, this series will give insight on players from the past. This week we will be focusing on defensive end Claude Humphrey.
    Claude B. Humphrey was born on June 29, 1944 in Memphis, Tennessee. Humphrey attended Lester High School where he excelled at both football and basketball. He had the opportunity to attend such schools as Nebraska and Illinois, but felt more comfortable at a predominately black university, and attended Tennessee State University.
    At Tennessee State, Claude Humphrey was on the 1965 and 1966 teams that went undefeated. He was named an All-American and also attended the Senior Bowl.
    With the 3rd overall pick in the 1968 AFL/NFL Draft, the Atlanta Falcons selected Claude Humphrey. He joined the Falcons during their 3rd season in franchise history, and the team went 2-12. Regardless, Humphrey had a solid season which earned him the honor of being the league’s Rookie of the Year.
    His career with the Falcons was an impressive one, as he was named a First-team All-Pro five times, and a Second-team All-Pro three times. From 1970-1974, and in 1977 he was named to the NFL Pro Bowl. In 1976, he was named to the Second-Team All-NFC for having an unofficial 15 sacks. Humphrey anchored the Falcons legendary “Gritz Blitz” which set a 14-game record in 1977 for allowing only 129 total points. He made the Pro Bowl six times in his career,
    After spending 10 seasons in Atlanta, the Falcons traded Claude Humphrey to the Philadelphia Eagles for two 4th round picks. In 1980, the Philadelphia Eagles earned a spot in Super Bowl XV, with the help of Humphrey’s 14 ½ sacks. In 1981, Claude Humphrey retired from the NFL, with an unofficial 126 ½ career sacks. A year later, the NFL officially started recording sacks in 1982.
    In his post football life, Claude Humphrey was inducted into the Georgia Hall of Fame and the Tennessee Hall of Fame. His jersey number has also been retired at both Lester High School and Tennessee State University. In 2008, Humphrey joined fellow Falcons’ great Mike Kenn in entering the Atlanta Falcons Ring of Honor.
    After being a finalist in 2003, 2005, 2006 and a senior finalist in 2009, Claude Humphrey was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2014.
    “I was aggressive, very aggressive. I tried to play the game to the point where when I walked off the field, there was nothing that I didn’t cover. I tried to play all out. I didn’t take any prisoners. I just tried to do my job.” — Claude Humphrey
    Aside from the three seasons he spent with the Philadelphia Eagles, Humphrey was a Falcon for a decade. He is one of the best defensive ends in Atlanta Falcons history, and one of the better defensive linemen to ever play the game. Fans that are old enough to have watched him, know his impact on the franchise. He’s one of the few Falcons representing in Canton, hopefully he’s joined in the future by other Falcons’ legends.
    Let me know in the comments below some of your favorite Claude Humphrey memories. As always, you can find me on Twitter @EvanBirchfield. Additionally, make sure to follow @The_Falcoholic on Instagram for up-to-date news and information. Thanks for reading, Falcoholics.

    Yea, it's almost like if you give Matt Ryan a pocket to step into to, he can deliver the ball downfield with little difficulty. Witchcraft!

    What most people talk about is Ryan's lack of arm strength.  They seem to forget that Ryan has consistently been one of the league's most efficient deep ball passers.  That might be because Ryan puts a lot of air under his throws to make it easier for his receivers to find the ball.

    A lot of people talk about those super high passes that Matt throws. On the post game show, Harry Douglas said that Matt throws those passes high because they’re thrown before the WR makes the dig for the post pattern and he just aims for a spot. Harry said Matt told him dig hard then look up. I’ll put the ball high enough to buy you time to locate It. I am messing up the wording but it’s pretty close to what he said. 
     
    Whats amazing is Matt said that’s the first time he’s thrown that route to OZ.

    He can never take back what he did. That is the truth.
    That said he paid his debt to society, and by all things I can tell he's doing things right and living on the straight and narrow. I have no problem with him being able to participate in the Pro Bowl.

    Isn't an investment something that offers a return in the form of interest or dividends? To me PSL's are a sinkhole. Being charged an additional fee for the "priviledge" of being able to then purchase that seats ticket price is well, just plain stupid when I can take my "investment" and save it and earn a real dividend or use it for any of these---but good to the bow-tie and wine crowd that will fill the new dome in 2017

    Saw today where the is another $100 million being tacked on to the cost of the stadium, I'd imagine PSL cost will stay where they are at if this is true. LOL whats another $100 million between friends?
    Wonder how much the guy got paid that missed the projected costs by that much.
    TPTB had better remember the birth of spectator sports back in the Roman era, was to give the masses something to do instead of plotting an overthrow of the emperor LOL.
