  1. Benito Jones will play in the NFL and he was on the board when we picked the punter.
  2. Here is hoping they get it right. Our old uniforms from the early days would do but I don't see that happening.
  3. A dynasty is built over an extended period of time. In 5 yrs. who will be our QB? Our center, our WR tandem, etc. If Matt Ryan can lead us to a Super Bowl win during his tenure it will be enough for me! Still, not the stuff of a dynasty.
  4. It is widely thought that these games are meaningless but if I have choice between winning and losing, I pick winning! It is not stupid to try to win.
  5. So far so good. This makes the draft exciting because there is a place on the team for fresh blood with upside.
  6. We played like losers against Philly. We need to put that behind us and remember who we are.
  7. On his drop he was so wide open that anybody coming up on him was going to be coming at high speed. Then the ball is high and he has to extend to catch it and it is floating in like a cloud. The soft throw caused him to slightly mistime his jump so he is coming down as the ball gets there and he has had to spin around. It was a bad drop but it could have happened to anybody. I would like to see more targets for him on the move and thrown at Ryan's normal throwing velocity. Then we start to see what we have.
  8. I think this is the guy the DC at Philly was talking about when he said we run "back yard" routes. When you think about it a receiver can do just about anything he wants to on a deep route as long as he shows up at the spot where the ball comes down and when it comes down. The juke move he put on that Philly defender is not something you can draw up. Go deep and I will hit you!
  9. We are easy around here. Just play better and win and all is soon forgiven. It has always been that way.
  10. You may want him to be better. He is clearly clueless and is not a sound tackler at this point. Maybe in a year or two he will get better and stronger. Worrilow has made more tackles the last 3 yrs. than 90% of the MLB's in the league. He gets no credit around here. He makes tackles on special teams because he is on the field not so he can back somebody up.
  11. The only problem with feelings is that they can fool you as you age. I think I am hitting my Driver the best I ever hit it in my life. When I do the math it doesn't add up. I am for him, so I hope he is just awesome and we get to wind up in the winners circle more this year.
  12. If this is the Mississippi State Matt Wells then it is a good pickup. He can cover and has speed to do anything else. He is just a top-notch athlete who might even be converted to safety.
  13. I think that sums it up pretty well. We will be able to tell by looking at the score board in the final analysis. Things look all around better going in to camp. I would prefer to have retained Jake Long but other than that I am good.
  14. I erased all the teams under 60/40. I think these remaining teams are pass happy. Some do it successfully. They score in the red zone. They win games. It is only a bad thing when you throw it incomplete and complete to the other team. When that happens you need to correct it or eliminate it by running more. It is not a crime to be pass happy.
  15. 60/40 is pass happy, but if your point is that we are not the most pass happy team in the league I guess you are right. All I want us to do is score more and if Matt Ryan starts patting the ball and being indecisive in the red zone we need to run it in.
  16. If Matt Ryan doesn't play well, we will have a bad season. He is our QB and we are pass happy, so without throwing him under the bus for anything he has failed on in the past his best days need to be ahead of him for this team to do anything much. I think things are in place for him to succeed in a big way and I am just going to watch with an open mind. It is a new year for me too.
  17. Spoon needs a crash course in rugby style tackling.
  18. QB's are getting the ball out too quick to be sacked unless the coverage is good and they decide to pat the ball like Matt Ryan does. Clayborn was coming for the QB about as fast as it can be done with nothing to show for it at the end of last season. For Brees we need inside pressure so he can't side step our outside guys. Babs and Jarret fit the bill and our 2 free agents are that type player.
  19. Turner was a featured back but when Norwood was here we were smoking! It didn't last long enough but it did work.
  20. Strong Safety is where I thought our biggest need was. I thought they would pick up a safety in round two or later. So, it is a strong needs based pick. We addressed an important area of weakness.
  21. He was playing out of position. He was a fine RB at USC.
  22. I thought my identity had been stolen when I saw this thread then i realized it was an oldie. This may well have been a turning point in how he was managing games because he was having a lot of fun up until that point. Somewhere about then he started overworking the notebook.
  23. but at least you are "the great american" while you learn! Treadwell is great. There are things we could do along the o-line. A guy like Jake Long would look mighty good at center. Get a couple good pulling guards and let him be more or less stationary. He could last 3 or 4 more years. I remember E. J. Holub on the Kansas City Chiefs. He was a great MLB with multiple knee operations and they made a center out of him and he finished out a long career there. An all time Ladbaby favorite!
  24. Petrino came in and had us set up to win and Mike Vick was the key to it all. The money and Mike Vick is why Petrino was here. So his plan B was Arkansas when Mike Vick was out of the equation. Jackson and Zimmer were good coaches for us and that has proven out over the years. If Petrino hadn't been Petrino all would have been well.
