  1. I would also be in favor of changing the PI to be a standard 15 yard penalty. As someone mentioned here, we assume a receiver would catch the ball and also many games are changed at the end and team end up losing because some deep bomb to the end zone that gets the call.
  2. I am sorry but this is kind of ridiculous for him to be even remotely considered that high in the draft. There is no way I would invest in him at 14th, he is a project and a risk in the NFL, but because of Russell Wilson once in a blue moon success we now think he can be the next version of him. I just do not see it.
  3. The idea of bringing someone who Ryan likes and has a good working relationship has a lot of weight. That will cut down on the adjustment process and Koetter has adjusted before when he came in 2012, he changed some of the terminology to keep the previous OC. I understand there are some reservations about him and the running game and what happened in 2013 and 2014 but a lot of that was outside his control especially the OL disaster. I think that Koetter HC experience will bring also another ingredient that could be helpful for the whole staff. Not of these picks are going to be a homerun on paper, but we only have a small window left of the best of Matt Ryan and Julio Jones as a combo so lets make sure they have input and are comfortable with the direction the offense is going and Koetter may be just that. What are the better options out there? Kubiak is not coming here and even with him, it will be starting all over again from the QB/OC relationship.

  5. I sure hope the Falcons find a way to keep him. He brings a different attitude to the team and has gotten much more pressure on the QB in the last three weeks than what they were getting before.
  6. Well said! I do not understand how people think that players and coaches will tank on purpose affecting their current jobs and jeopardizing their career opportunity. That could potentially affect their track record going forward, plus a lot of players who do not have a secured job spot will want to play to earn one next year, either here or in another team. It is sort of like the 4th game of the preseason scenario for a lot of them, except these games count.
  7. Players and coaches have their job on the line, this is an evaluation period for them. How in the world are you expecting them to "tank" the rest of the season? That is just completely unrealistic and absurd to even discuss or consider. Unless Blank makes a mandate and promises all of them to have job security, it will not happen. It affects their resume also in the event that they need to move on to another opportunity due to changes. I really wish we would stop with these threads about tanking and actually discuss football related things that matter and will benefit the team going forward.
  8. It is crazy to think that Ryan still has 28 TD passes, only 6 INTs, over 4000 yards, a 70 percent completion percentage and a 108 rating as a passer. All these while enduring a bad OL play and a defense that doesn’t help the offense and without a sign of a running game. Why do people have to go to extremes trying to find blame?

  11. I do not understand why some fans are dissing Atlanta United or the achievement. It is good that MLS is growing in popularity and it is great to have a champion and I believe this can be of benefit to the Atlanta Falcons. There are no reasons to pin one against another but root for both and the mutual success.
  12. We started the game on no huddle and then they went away from it. Why not try more of that and let Ryan call plays at the LOS?
  13. Quinn bears responsibility, but letting him go is not the answer. He does need to surround himself with more experienced better coaches so he can be a better HC. I do not think is time to let him go but core changes to the coaching staff need to be made, including the position of OC and DC. The injuries definitely had an effect, but it is not the whole story.
  14. Quinn would not be let go and I believe you do have a point. The players may still like him but be upset with other coaches and it’s time to shake thing up. First order should be OC and let Greg Knapp finish the season and see how the team responds.
  15. Saw on Twitter that the Panthers already let go some position coaches. We may as well have Quinn shake up the Falcons coaching staff to send a signal. Maybe the team will respond better to Knapp to take over at OC for the last 4 games even just to end on a positive note.
