  1. DQ running the "D" will shave off milliseconds in the pass rush. You just can't throw the ball if you're running for your life. Plus, I'm guessing there will be a good supply of stunts. I believe it's a good recipe for our aging pocket passer opponents in this division.
  2. Tommy & Family- knew someone that hit stage 4 twice and is now in complete remission. Prayers work! Never give up, never surrender! We love you brother!
  3. SEC players are just so expensive, look what it took to draft JJ.....LOL! ...yes agree there are more SEC players in the NFL than any other conference but the ACC, 12s, & 10, produce some of the all time best gridiron superstars. Why don't more NFL teams scout and draft closer to home? Who knows but outsider speculation may be: A. The Scouts enjoy travelling & want to rack up as many points as possible before summer vacation; B. If your Dad's the former Heavyweight World Champion and beloved by the home city, any final separation,regardless the reason, will be real messy; C. The NFL is a business and each team is under constant pressure to increase the size of it's fan base, drafting within 100 miles when there is comparable talent elsewhere is like kissing your sister; D. All of the above; or E. None of the above.
  4. It's going to be a very competitive preseason and I expect the best 53, possibly in Falcons history. DQ will know well before 1Sep19 whether he can get urgency out of VB. This is a "get that ring" or "see ya" year, IMHO.
  5. Yep, we should definitely improve our 3rd and short chances. I'll miss Matt Bryant but it's going to be great getting 6 pts instead of 3 while giving our D a little more rest.
  6. Great Post! I hope they, and all of our new draftees, have a warm southern welcome to the ATL.
  7. I'm not a "UGA Homer" but your ability to predict a prospects future must be much better than mine because I do think he will end up on some team's final 53 or at least the practice squad. I do have a respect for the "D" talent of the SEC and 6.4 ypc avg for any RB in that battle tested conference negates any 40 yard combine sprint IMHO. Look, I think Green was a good pick and I'm glad we have him...but Holyfield is the "bigger" of the two. Holyfield has a big chip on his shoulder and rookie of not I would rather he play on some AFC team than a NFC South adversary. Who knows he might even become a Falcon some day.
  8. A- The most dire needs were filled- Freeman should have a good year, especially in the redzone ..wish we could have beaten the Panthers to get free agent Holyfield- 6.4ypc in the SEC is no small feat regardless of combine results
  9. Remember all of those times we settled for field goals instead punching it through when in the Red Zone? Those days appear to be gone. It's been a while since our OL imposed it's will on anyone...hopefully this draft fixed that!
  10. I'm glad that TD can ignore the excessive hype by some analyst for certain players and has the courage to pursue those that DQ and the staff can mold into our brand of football. I believe this is one of the best drafts that TD has made in terms of needs, but only time will tell.
  11. Not sexy having top two picks on the OL but very solid draft with emphasis exactly where DQ said we needed it. We might even have a couple of diamonds in the rough. Looking forward to the start of the season.
  12. Very good selections IMO, size & speed...we're going to have good depth in 2019- can't wait!
  13. Hope everyone gets on this train because we have the engine that can make it to Miami. Lofty goals I know but this is an all in season on a number of fronts.
  14. We didn't have the depth nor the right coordinators to make a serious run. I believe the lessons were learned and we're a better team due to the 2018 challenges. Excited to see how far we'll go in 2019!
