  1. I'm just personally on the Dexter Lawrence bandwagon...340+ pounds and great speed for his size and will solidfy the middle against the run while still be able to collaspe pocket very much Poe like we did see that Poe presence made everyone better on the D-line and he had a similar role at Clemson...OL in FA and DL in Draft primarly I hope Lawrence
  2. I'll play the game with some add-ons Trufant stays Alford goes as they both last season played at about the same level last year and finincal Alford contract adds more to the pot and is designed to be a lot more cut friendly. Resign Beasley 4 year extension on top of 5th year and my cap # for next year for him would be around 6.5-7 Million still thinking he's capable of averaging 8 sacks a year and impact player with proper handling Rush Ends of him, Irvin, and Mckinnley is solid Resign Jarrett of Course and Resign B.Irvin something along the 5-7 million per year for 2-3 years Resign Sambrillo on a 1-2 year deal let him come into camp with opportunity to win th RT job outright risky but your hoping that he maybe is finally maximuming talent to be decent RT Sucks but cut Bryant tough decision but other kicker looked pretty good and that money would help greatly in other areas Extend Julio 2 more years on top of existing 2 year maybe this saves a million or so off of 2019 cap depending on structure. Cut Schareder, Reed, Alfords, Bryant & Extending Beasley adds about 28.75 Million to the Cap next year overall that give us about 51 Million to play with which would be plenty to do all mentioned plus still have enough to target a Guard in FA, and some depth pieces and draft while retaining a rainy day fund
  3. Good outlook definitely believe both Koetter and Ryan have had some discussion and probably some excitement there to work together again and it is true that Ryan is a different QB then his previous tenure and is now fully more comfortable being directly involved in all aspects. We still got to touchy up the O-line and hope for a healthy freeman. I'm most excited about Quinn handing off some of the overall involvement and getting be primarly focused on Defense with it's planning, development, and game-day I believe with Quinn being in charge and a healthy Jones, Neal, Allen back and a few tweaks this Defense can be up there next year.
  4. People losing their minds over Koetter going to be end of the running attack and need to temper themselves just a little bit such a over-reaction...Provided some stats to compare and then please do yourselve some extra leg work and compare the Offensive line/Running back talent between these groups comparatively. The Post Falcons RB stable for one is better then any running back at the time Koetter had with Atlanta/TB. D.Martin is the closest in talent and the one year he had him healthy/not suspended D.Martin put up 1400+ yards and the next year probably finishes around 1000+ if played all season and no issues. The O-lines during Koetter tenure here were be all accounts pretty trash and makes our O-line this year just eyeball wise still more talented then most of his lines he head except maybe for 2012. No doubt Koetter likes his vertical passing and it's safe to say running attack won't be exactly the same but with Freeman,I.Smith, Hill and a little tweaking on the O-line still should easily be middle of the pack and we know Koetter and Ryan have a great relationship and with the current offensive talent and both with knowledge learned it a recipe for success together once again plus the main excitement I gather from this is because Quinn is fully taking over the Defense,Gameplanning, scheming and that 2016 second half of the year makes me have hope that with healthy players coming back and Quinn running it and not having to be so deeply wrapped into the whole package that this D can be top 10 again next year with a very good offense as well and get back to playoffs. Post Koetter Rushing Stats 2018 27th - 98.3 (Coleman, I.Smith) 2017 13th - 115.4 (Freeman, Coleman) 2016 5th - 120.5 (Freeman, Coleman) 2015 19th - 100.4 (Freeman, Coleman) Koetter Tenure Falcons/TB 2012 29th - 87.3 (M.Turner, JRodgers) 2013 32nd - 77.9 (Stephen Jackson, JRodgers) 2014 24th - 93.6 (Stephen Jackson, JRodgers,Asmith, Freeman) 2015 OC (TB) 5th 135.1 (D.Martin, C.Sims) 2016 HC (TB) 24th 101.0 (D.Martin**, C.Sim, JRodgers) by way this is still better #s then 2 of our past 4 years hmmm **In Trouble/Injuries after his 1400 yard season only played 8 games.
  5. Sark wasn't great it's been stated over and over with stats that Sark while seemingly better this year still had no answer for above average defenses and shrink against them and Manuel while young and seemingly okay guy probably solid defensive mind was odd-man out because his firing probably had more to do with the internal decision made to let Quinn take full control over the defense and game day calling(WHICH we all should be happy about based on 2016 second half alone) and returning healthy players and getting someone they felt could truly handle the Executive role of managing the offense without much involvement required of HC that's why they brought back Koetter, Muluraky, and have Knapp in tow for their overall experience apparently based of feelings must have felt Sark couldn't handle that full role and pressure... ohh and Armstrong been bad for years so he needed to go
  6. As stated earlier, I'm a Tech fan you will never hear me say I hope that team from east of ATL wins... but I'll say I hope Alabama loses hate them.... Pats of the NCAA #stillangry
  7. I'm a GT fan and I'm just catching up to this chat but geez is this what it's like for Alabama you don't have to worry whatsoever about calls, the fake offsides blocked punt, the shot clock facemask, and pushing QB neck hilarious... with that said I've always hated Alabama so my opinion is I would like to see them lose... even if it's Georgia
  8. Well we've all grown to appreciate Allen roll in the D but most everyone was excited for Kazee because all the tools if he's the future he's gonna have a game or 2 to proof his worth don't recall a anything negative last week when was In
  9. The Coleman pass was out in front of him and he did have his head turned looking at ball and while rushed pass and had lol pepper still a pro catches 9 out of 10 times
  10. My talking head says screw you Sanu and Coleman get your heads right both those ints on them ball right in your hands and you pop it up in air.... Coaching nor Defense didn't almost cost us game
  11. So Carolina already got a QB who is notrious for holding onto the ball too long and now they have a guy seemingly causing him to hold onto the ball longer while he poop-plops downfield...I see nothing wrong with this from my vantage point
  12. It was after Freddie getting hit and before the one guy called Motte a F****t and bat flip.... That's the stuff that probably got this even more heated imagine being hit like 7-8 times in 3 games and then one of them seriously hurting your star player having is best year ever and then they yell obscenities at you and show boat with bat flips....PISSED
  13. He played like a mad man in the GB playoff game so much so late in the game I believe on the Rodgers scramble that Alford performed the greatest flop ever on, Shede started to pursue and just fall over apparently dead cause he was gassed from going all out I truly thought the guy knocked out haha...
  14. Sanu has done what was asked of him in this offense and I would rather has a good talented #2 that see limited usage and fits a role then a crap #2 that sees limited use and when does is crap at it... Sanu is a heck of a blocker, made clutch catches last year when needed, helps keep teams from just putting all the size against Julio cause he's a big boy too and when he catches and gets up-field he's a finisher and lays into defenders.
  15. Hageman has the proper tools to be a regular Solid DT who can wow you with his athleticism at times... but his ability is all tempered by the role he is assigned and his attitude. He's very much like the Hulk...he's most effective it seems when he's just pissed and angry which is contrary to nature of a professional player you got to execute play in control etc but for him the attitude leads to just less effort for whatever reason but when he's seemingly angry that meanness just makes him 2 inches taller and 2X times stronger
  16. I have no opinion of this I like the guy hope he wins the job and balls out but every time I hear the short arms discussion this always comes to mind and gives me a good laugh
  17. The Eric Saubert kid I bet... Definitely not Poe guy had like 44-45 reps on bench
  18. I would be shocked if this guy is wasn't working at FS in OTA/Training camp if you read his scouting report compared to one Earl Thomas the strengths are very good matches Earl is slightly faster but both guys in college were recognized for their ability to recognize pass routes and where the ball was going and react to it... the only downsides to Kazee is points related to him playing at Corner-back and not key in regards to if played at Safety... We had talks in the Draft of Falcons needing to target a Safety at some point and we know we are have seemingly 5 spots at corner which are probably locked down, I think they picked this guy to convert to FS and build that depth with guys who can play that role
  19. I like Rico too and definitely seen growth in him last season in his role at FS and communication improve as year went on... I have no doubts Rico is the guy next year and he's got contract discussions ahead etc so this seems very much a future/insurance policy pickup for Falcons a guy that has the proper skills to excel at spot and can learn to eventually take-over job if it came to that
  20. Yeah remember the true job of the FS in Quinn's Defense is to the be deep guy and diagnose plays make call outs to D and make plays in front of him... The guy's got decent speed lil better then Rico coming out of College and sounds like his strong set will allow him to fit perfectly into a FS spot here... I'm not saying he's replacing Rico next year but it's a safety net no pun intended for them to groom a guy who could eventually replace him if Rico goes elsewhere or has significant injury
  21. If you watch Beasley highlight reel and look to pick out that move the one that he truly excels in.... I mean you can't beat his speed but he burnt many a ol it seems with that Juke that speed he get's going full tilt has a Lineman back pedal or get stuck in tracks and just pops a Juke and the lineman is completely off balance and easy then to get a arm/body into the OL and turn corner to get to the QB... it seems one thing he really made a jump with is his decisiveness he done alot of dancing his rookie year it seemed and truly just didn't attack the lineman and that changed in year 2
  22. We've built the starts of one of the better pass rushes in the league along with getting athletic LBs that when they started getting experience and settled in have showed a big improvement on covering those short dump offs that killed us for years... we've greatly improved in that game and are cutting off one of the main tactics against a very good pass rush which is short passing game teams can't even get away with that now...
  23. Quote I picked up from a interview of Duke around Combine the one thing all these guys share thru and thru is a competitive work ethic and toughness... all these guys just seem to love football and understand that for themselves to succeed it will be continually hard work "the Combine was a grind, but my advice to someone if they were going is to stay away from negativity, negative thoughts. You hear guys talking about it saying, ‘Man they’re killing us throughout the process. Why are they waking us up so early? Why are they making us wait so long?’ Every time I heard somebody say something like that I tried to separate myself from them.”
