  1. Do you agree or disagree of where the NFC south stand in terms of QB ranking? tl;dr afc west nfc west nfc north afc north afc east nfc south afc south nfc east http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001031777/article/ranking-divisions-by-quarterback-afc-west-nfc-west-top-list
  2. He’s the 35th best TE last year according to PFF and their fans are expecting at least a 3rd for return.
  3. Why not just say the top defense
  4. Y’alls might have learn that I love me some PFF. Anyway, here’s their tidbits about this topic; they even have a little bit of our Falcons in it. Enjoy and discuss. After listen, what do you think of rushing 3 and dropping 8? I know we all hated doing this.
  5. Not a specific unit, but cornerbacks! Cornerbacks are one of the top positional value and getting a great one can tremendously help a team. On your example pats, who in their secondary is getting paid?...the corners! The pats can survive w/o having a great pass rush but they make up with great corners; they pay their corner, every other position on D usually just gets rotated to the next man up.
  6. Easy, look at the wins and losses. QB is the most important position when it comes to determining wins and losses. Even with Donald on the team, they had 3 consecutive losing season and didn’t starting winning until they had a competent QB.
  7. I’m not fond of trading up, unless it’s for QB and we don’t need one at the moment. PFF has a stat called war (win above replacement) where it accounts for a players contribution to the teams winning. As transcending as Arnold Donald is at his position he contributed like 2ish wins according to pff. On the other hand I remember listening to a pff podcast where they discussed had baker played at the beginning of the season his war would’ve been like 6-8 win games and Baker is like a top 12 QB. Point is, the #1 DT in league accounted for only like 2 wins. Trading up for a DT even if it was for Q. William ain’t going to drastically push us over the top.
  8. Im indifferent when it comes to drafting Ed, if we draft him cool and if we don’t cool too. I rather we draft the right person. If that’s Ed then so be it. From PFF’s perspective, the Falcons will limit his growth because if we draft Ed it’ll most likely to play the nose and though he good there he’s not elite. The bright side is that Ed has played the nose position probably more than anybody else who will be in contention for our first round pick. Do you want to pick Ed to play the nose if you don’t think he can be elite there?
  9. Here’s a video of what was discussed. Burns comparison, according to Jeremiah, is Vic Beasley. The topic at hands beings around the 20 sec mark.
  10. It may be skewed a little bit by having to play against #2/ #3 corners. Tell a 1st round DT to play against 2nd/3rd string Guard all year, 1st round Tackle to play against 2nd/3rd string DE all year, etc. The majority of the time the 1st rounder will win. Ridley supposed to win the majority of the time, as well as look good doing it. Ridley is well on his way to becoming a great receiver, now we just have to see if he can do it against number 1 corners and that may never happend unless JJ11 leaves or gets hurt.
  11. Can’t trade comp pick
  12. QB free agent this year is weak and some say teddy is the #1 prospect. He’s going to be stop-gap starter somewhere. As well, the saints traded a 3rd round pick for him in a year that they don’t even have a first round. I don’t think they’re just going to let him walk.
  13. i know it’s not the falcons but I just saw this and it makes a lot if sense, on top of being related to OP’s topic.
  14. When TB said Matt Ryan was the first pick...I cringed and stopped right there!
