  1. Sorry if this has already been posted but I just went on the nfl.com website and they have a HC/GM tracker area. Under the Eagles it shows an interview with Arthur Smith as being "scheduled".
  2. I apologize if this has already been answered. Do the same rules apply to talking with/interviewing potential GM candidates who are currently employed by other NFS teams a they do for HC candidates? In other words, do we have to wait until the season is over to start interviewing GM candidates?
  3. Despite recent developments in the labor battle that are seen as positive by some, the NFL is planning for a regular season as short as eight games, the Sports Business Journal reported Monday. The reported plan essentially means that in order to have a 2011 season a new collective bargaining agreement would need to be reached no later than early November. Under the reported plan, the eight-game season would start in late November and culminate with the Super Bowl in Indianapolis Feb. 12. The NFL has previously cleared the way for the Super Bowl to be played as late as Feb. 12. The league is l
  4. Hi Tandy. I am so sorry you and your family are having to go through this. I became acquainted with this relentless disease 5 years ago when it took away the love of my life. It grieves me that you are having to watch this happen to your beloved Timmy. Thank you for your openness in allowing us to share this. I am glad to hear that the Falcons responded and sent Timmy the package. I hope it lifted his spirits. Your story also reminds us that we are not just Falcon fans with our avatars and sigs, but real people with real struggles in life. I know I speak for myself and many, if not al
  5. I work part time at PGA Superstore in Kennesaw. Mr Blank now owns the company, and we seem to have a good assortment of Falcon related items; jerseys, etc. We also have a lot of college team accessories.
  6. Atlanta Falcons (Last Year: 11-5) 2009 NFL Draft Grade: I bashed Atlanta's draft last year, and I learned my lesson to judge these grades based on needs, as well as positional and draft value. Thomas Dimitroff once again has shown us why he's one of the brightest young general managers in the NFL. The Falcons had needs on the defensive line, so they used two of their first four selections to improve that area. I'm not sure if Peria Jerry can play the nose, but he's a talented prospect. Lawrence Sidbury, meanwhile, was taken at No. 125 even though he was projected to go in the second round.
  7. Thanks Tandy! I'm sure Todd appreciated it. He is a real warrior and team player who does his job in the trenches.
  8. The Brandon Miller release perplexed me a bit. Like Tandy, I remember Coach Smith saying some positive things about Brandon just a few days ago, and now he is released and on a team 3,000 miles away. What a difference a day makes!! I know Brandon has amazing physical skills and was hoping he was going to be one of those "diamonds in the rough" players.
  9. Yea, i keep looking for info on what we did with Foster. That would be huge if he could come back and contribute the rest of the season. When I saw Breaking News yesterday I thought that was going to be it. But that was the Brandon Miller release.
  10. You can now tackle a QB cleanly, not get flagged, but still be fined mega bucks.
  11. Hi Tandy, Just wanted to join the other vets in supporting you and your grand daughter. I served quite a while back (Nam), but I definitely remember boot camp. I know you have to be heart broken and proud at the same time. Heart broken because you miss her so much; and proud because she is living her dream and doing something very honorable. I'm sure I speak for all the vets in saying we want to be there for you and support you in any way we can. Please feel free to message me anytime you want. Just hang in there and feel proud. When she gets out of camp and into her school she wi
  12. In light of what happened last year, I honestly thought we were 2-3 years away from even being where we are now. TD has done an amazing job!! I don't know for sure if there is such a thing as an award for Executive or FO person of the year; but if there is, he's it!!! Props to AB for putting the pieces together for a winning franchise. The chemistry of the entire organization from FO on down is solid, and everyone seems to be on the same page. It seems like AB learned from Mr Kraft to hire a bright GM to run your football operations, and just step aside and let him do his job. If TD and
  13. Apparantly Shockey did not run a correct route or something. i believe one of the announcers said he could read Brees' lips saying "I needed you there".
  14. You are so right. I'm sooo glad TD is calling the shots for real!! I will gladly remain an armchair GM.
  15. Great read Tandy. What a mature young man!! Ryan Purvis (TE from BC) first cousin plays on my tennis team. He has met Matt Ryan several times and I remember him commenting on his maturity and confidence levels being off the chart. A lot of our team members were bummed about picking Ryan over Dorsey last Spring. Purvis told us not to worry; we would not be disappointed with Matt. He turned out to be right on!!
