  1. That's a definite ban.
  2. I love this. I hated Vick after it happened, but have happily forgiven. He is arguably the epitome of what people think about when it comes to the Atlanta Falcons. Both good and bad.
  3. Had a white one, then gave it away after he went to jail. Just recently bought a black Vick jersey on eBay. One of the most exciting and important Atlanta Falcons of all time. He has been forgiven.
  4. I've had my top players listed since the combine, so now I'll put them all together and mock out our draft. If you don't want to read and would rather immediately skip to who my selections are, just read the last part of the post. They are all recapped at the bottom. For some fun, here are my 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 mock drafts. This is why I'm not an NFL General Manager. 2013: (this sucks) 1st round-Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU 2nd round-Sean Porter, OLB, Texas A&M 3rd round-Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford 4th round-B.W. Webb, CB, William and Mary 4th round-LaVar Edwards, DE, LSU 5th round-Corey Fuller, WR, Virginia Tech 6th round-Denard Robinson, KR, Michigan 7th round-Cooper Taylor, FS, Richmond 7th round-Vince Williams, MLB, Florida State 2014: (this sucks less) 1st round-Taylor Lewan, LT, Michigian 2nd round-Kyle Van Noy, OLB, BYU 3rd round-Dion Bailey, FS, USC 4th round-CJ Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa 5th round-Daniel McCullers, DT, Tennessee 6th round-John Urschel, OG, Penn State 6th round-Max Bullough, ILB, Michigan State 7th round-Marcus Lucas, WR, Mizzou 7th round-Max Hall, OT, Bellhaven 2015 (back to the suckage) 1st round-Randy Gregory, DE, Nebraska 2nd round-Paul Dawson, MLB, TCU 3rd round-David Johnson, RB, Northern Iowa 4th round-Darryl Williams, LT, Oklahoma 5th round-Chris Conley, WR, Georgia 6th round-Alani Fua, OLB, BYU 7th round-Corey Cooper, FS, Nebraska 7th round-David Mahina, TE, BYU 2016 (the jury is out but not looking good) 1st round-Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Oklahoma State 2nd round-Braxton Miller, WR, Ohio State 3rd round-Tyler Matakevich, MLB, Temple 4th round-Jayron Kearse, SS, Clemson 7th round-Sioasi Aiono, OG, Utah Alright! So without further adieu, let's do this. "With the 31st pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Atlanta Falcons select Caleb Brantley. Defensive tackle, University of Florida. Aaron Donald is the comparison that you keep hearing, and while I wouldn't go that far, I think his skill set is very similar to an Aaron Donald type player. Brantley's ceiling is through the roof, and his floor is unfortunately pretty low. With that said, we are now in the position to make those type of boom-or-bust picks. If Brantley pans out, we have our defensive tackle for the next decade. Penetration with a capital P. Funnily enough, CBS Sports' comparison is Jonathan Babineaux. 2nd round (63rd overall): Dan Feeney, OG, Indiana This is absolutely drafting for need and not necessarily best player available. Feeney is certainly not a "sexy" pick, but he absolutely fills a role day 1. Being that interior linemen are scarce in this draft, I wouldn't be surprised to see him get snatched up prior to the end of the 2nd. His medical concerns are valid, but given our draft position, you absolutely take the risk and snatch up an immediate starter at 63. 3rd round (95th overall): Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson Like Brantley, this is another high risk/high reward selection. Luckily, elite teams are often put in the position to take these types of risks. In today's NFL, two receiving tight ends are a great asset, and that's exactly what this gives us alongside Austin Hooper. Athletically, Leggett is arguably the most gifted tight end in this draft. His questionable work ethic is a huge red flag, but his size, speed, and ability to get open are undeniable. 4th round (136th overall): John Johnson, FS, Boston College This may seem like a reach at this point as Johnson is considered a 5th rounder by most sites I browse, but it fills another potential need. Johnson is solid in coverage, which certainly makes him a potential NFL starter sooner rather than later. He's not going to knock anybody out like Keanu Neal, but can certainly hold his own as a tackler. This would be a terrific selection. 5th round (174th overall): T.J. Logan, RB, North Carolina A combine warrior who ran the fastest 40 yard dash at the combine for running backs with a 4.3. Another possible reach being that he's scouted as a 6th rounder, but speed guys tend to go pretty quickly on the 3rd day. Logan certainly doesn't see much playing time in our current stacked backfield, but he could definitely be a special teams gem. 6th round (214th overall): Dylan Cole, OLB, Missouri State I had the privilege of watching Cole play high school football just down the road from me in Rogersville MO, which may cloud my judgment a bit. He provides solid depth for a surprisingly stout linebacker corps. A 4.5 40 yard dash and solid college production does the trick as a day 3 pick. 7th round (249th overall): Conrad Ukropina, K, Stanford Ukropina could possibly be picked up as a UDFA, but he's a top kicking prospect who potentially fills a role next season once Bryant inevitably walks off in the sunset. He holds virtually every school record as a kicker, Converted 4 field goals in his final college game against UNC in the Sun Bowl, and also made a name for himself after a clutch 45 yard game winner against Notre Dame. 2017 Draft in Summary 1st round (31st overall), Caleb Brantley DT, Florida 2nd round (63rd overall), Dan Feeney, OG, Indiana 3rd round (95th overall), Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson 4th round (136th overall), John Johnson, FS, Boston College 5th round (174th overall), TJ Logan, RB, North Carolina 6th round (214th overall), Dylan Cole, OLB, Missouri State 7th round (249th overall), Conrad Ukropina, K, Stanford
  5. Wanting to buy a Poe jersey for the new season but of course I'm a bit intimidated. Give me some hope guys!
  6. Ok for the love of Yahweh no more Panthers talk.
  7. 1,000 percent this. The idea of a 1 year deal kills me. You have one of the best nose tackles in football who's just now entering his prime. Take a risk and lock him up for the long run.
  8. We landed on the moon!
  9. Hoping this doesn't prevent a Poe signing.
  10. "Worst signing since Edwards" hahaha. AFMB rhetoric is what gets me through the offseason.
  11. 3. 98 Falcons 2. 16 Falcons 1. 12 Falcons
  12. I would pay 100 for one easily, assuming it's an original.
  13. From week 1 of the regular season to the Super Bowl: 443 for 632, 5,858 passing yards, 47 passing touchdowns, 7 interceptions, 119.3 QB rating, 137 rushing yards and 1 rushing TD. It's amazing that after having a historic MVP year, he proceeded to somehow be even better in the playoffs. The argument that the guy isn't as clutch as they come is officially dead, and the burial has been completed. When you look at a QB's season wide performance from week 1-19, there's not many that come close historically. You know what's even scarier? Look at Manning's, Brady's, Rodgers' (so far), and Elway's statistics from 32 years old and up. Last season may not have been an anomaly for Matt. It may have become the norm.
  14. For many of us, the Atlanta Falcons are our identity. Even with the heartbreaking Super Bowl loss, we collectively couldn't be more proud of arguably the greatest single season in franchise history. With the help of a few board members, we are wanting to surprise the Falcons with an appreciative thread showing our support for the entire team. It is our hope that this thread can be passed onto the players who may not read the boards or even be familiar with them. There's a ton of negativity going on throughout social media and beyond, but we're here to let our guys know that nothing can ever lead us to stop supporting and loving our team. I'm proud of them more than ever before, and couldn't be more excited for the upcoming 2017 season. This will be pinned here in a few hours once people start to see it, and then closed Sunday night.
