  1. True and sad for Luke Ford. Usually you need a few outrages to affect change in the NCAA - this is one of them added to the pile. In other news, this transfer portal will hurt the best recruiting teams with depth.
  2. Michael Bennett is 104 years old (Actually 34). He is about 1/2 the player he was in 2015 - his best year statistically. Unless you are getting Bennett for peanuts on a 1 year deal, hard pass.
  3. Still cannot believe the Falcons didn't trade Hoop before the deadline - he was healthy and could have been traded before the deadline. Now that rumor is we let him walk and if we sign Fowler, we likely won't get any comp pick for him as those two contracts will offset somewhat. Stupid mistake by Dimi.
  4. Tried to tell all that re-signing Hooper wasn’t a good move given personnel on team, the salary cap issues, the defense and too much money in contracts and cap to the offensive side of the ball. That and Hooper simply isn’t worth the contract he will receive.
  5. I just have this feeling that Matt won’t play much past 40 - not because he cannot, he just won’t desire to. His two boys are like 2 yrs old now. I know the other QBs have kids as well.
  6. Falcons are gonna have to make a lot of great moves to be a SB contender again - this roster isn't close right now.
  7. at some point both Matt and Julio will be overpaid - let's hope that won't be for another 4 years! I know AB won't be too unhappy if he can get 3-4 more great years out of both these guys.
  8. yeah possibly but wanted to be conservative on number of years and the level of production - conservatively they are both "Top 5" players of all-time in yards at their positions if Matt plays 4 more years and Julio 3 more years - if they play more years or with no dropoff, it goes up from there. Bottom-Line, both these guys are likely to be somewhere in the Top 5 all-time - which is unbelievable - just wish they had the SuperBowl Victory to go with it - at this point, not confident that will ever happen.
  9. I like Andy and Randy a lot. Liked them individually before and even better together. Hard to believe the same program directors that give us Dukes&Bell and Andy&Randy also give us the trainwreck of a morning show with John&Hugh - maybe the worst sportstalk show I have ever heard - and I have heard some bad ones. John Fricke is probably the worst host I have ever heard. His thoughts and takes are so wrong as to be laughable - He believes he is a really good interviewer but asks the stupidest questions and has no insight on anything.
  10. I remember the 2015 NFL Draft the Falcons were linked heavily to Dante' Fowler. I believe there is even a connection from Dan Quinn to Fowler from his time in Florida - until Fowler started rising up the boards, Falcons were heavily linked to Fowler. Anyone else remember this?
  11. never liked the number "5" before but those uni's fonting even make "5" look cool.

If he averages 4,000yds/season over the next 4 years, that would put him at 5th all-time and within sniffing distance of 4th all-time of Brett Favre. At 35yrs old to start the season, reasonable to believe he would play for at least 4 more years with continued health.

Assuming Julio averages 1,200yds/season over next three years that would put him at 4th overall in the history of the game. While it is natural to assume there will be dropoff over the next three years, I assumed an "average" off 1,200yds and would expect he could exceed that number in 2020 and 2021 - obviously injuries could factor as well. Both Matt Ryan and Julio Jones figure to be Top 5 at their positions in total passing and receiving yardage collectively before they hang it up. Fairly incredible considering the 54 year history of the franchise and no players even close to historic numbers before and now we have two - of course they help each other get to these new heights. Hope both can stay healthy!
  13. I kind of like these - would their be an alternate black helmet/black jersey as well? or just use the historical alternate jerseys we have now black - to go with the above. Also, would they be wearing pants? I could get behind these - like the stripes on top of the shoulder instead of the clown show going down the shoulder we have now. I like that color off red as well.
  14. will be hard pressed to improve upon this - back to the future!
  15. we didn't even franchise Deion Sanders - and YES the franchise tag existed then, it was in its infancy. Think about that, one of the only Hall of Famers in Falcons history - and the idiot Smiths don't even franchise him.
