  1. If Sanu doesn’t retire a Falcon I will be supremely disappointed in this team’s decision making.
  2. I remember a painfully obvious hold on Vic Beasley while Brady was throwing from his own endzone that should’ve resulted in a safety. Nope.
  3. In our Super Bowl the Patriots ran just over 100 offensive plays and were called for offensive holding 0 times. I rest my case.
  4. Man, I could cry right now. So happy for Roddy.
  5. I love Jeff, wouldn’t at all be surprised if he ends up a head coach one day.
  6. I had front row seats on the home side both times I got club seats at the Benz, which were great. It was the game two years ago against the Saints on Thursday night when Debo had that INT in the endzone. I still get chills just thinking about it and the way the Benz erupted, my absolute favorite Falcons memory, and I’ve been to about 10 or so games total. Then last year I saw the Baltimore game. This year I think we’re looking at club seats for the Falcons/Rams game but maybe 15 or so rows up. You’ll have great seats no matter where you’re at on the club level so no need to splurge too mu
  7. I stay at the Ritz and you can see the stadium from your room, but that’s a little bit much/extra for some people and I’m sure an airbnb would be fun. I’d recommend getting the club level seats if you can afford it so you have access to the field-level area. Fun as **** to get to go down onto the field before/during/after the game and be right behind the players. I got a picture with Jeff Ulbrich a few years back down there. When I asked for a photo he goes “I don’t know why anyone would want a picture with me, but sure”
  8. I think part of DQ’s approach to this entire offseason was his own confidence in calling plays on defense. Just look at the coaches he’s brought in on the offensive side of the ball now: Koetter, Mularkey, Greg Knapp, and not to mention guys already here like Raheem. The offensive coaching staff alone is arguably the most “accomplished” we’ve had in Atlanta for a long time. Also the focus of the draft went to making the offense more diverse overall and very talented along the line. Matt Ryan has never had this much depth and potential along his offensive line, ever. I’m defini
  9. Fair enough. And you’re not wrong, I just think saying our defense is “trash” is simply not true. Teams would kill to have an elite young linebacker like Deion and a young tone setter like Keanu. Their combination of youth/experience/talent is second to none. I’m willing to say that this defense with Quinn calling the plays on every single down and acting fully as DC, will be vastly improved to what we’ve seen in awhile. That’s his talent and where he truly shines as a coach. Him having the keys to this D on gamedays calling plays is what he should’ve been doing his entire time here. But
  10. Just counting up injuries does not equal losing guys that are the face of the team. Quality over quantity.
  11. I seriously doubt many defenses in the league could overcome losing their equivalent of Deion, Keanu, and Rico in the first few games of the year. You could count the teams on one hand that could overcome losing those guys. That does not make the unit “trash” which was my entire point.
  12. It’s not ignorance on my part at all that saying this defense is trash is stupid. Because it is stupid. Having holes in the front 7 does not make the entire defense “trash” in the slightest. Saying the defense is trash is dismissive and ignorant. You can say “2 injuries away” from disaster is true with just about any team’s defense. 2018 we lost literally our face of the franchise defensive players in Deion and Keanu. Take away the top talent on any team’s defense and there’s going to be problems. Throw in Rico’s injury, and Grady/Takk missing time as well as Vic Beasley’s continued invi
  13. You are wrong. Calling this defense “trash” is just stupid honestly. The only weak point going into the season as of now is a top tier pass rusher, and more than half the league is searching for one of those type of guys. I’m giving DQ the benefit of the doubt as D coordinator this year. Talk **** on him as a head coach as much as you like, but the guy can call a defense with the best of them. It’s unfortunate he hasn’t always been the DC here, but that decision came with experience of a new head coach.
  14. Bye bye Hooper then. We cannot lose Deion & Keanu. Grady may actually price us out of his perceived range... which would be unfortunate to lose him, but he’s not worth close to Donald money. So if he wants it, bye bye Grady too. And honestly I’d rather cut Freeman and keep Mack & Sanu until they choose to stop playing. Unless Freeman shows he’s actually worth what he’s paid this season, then that decision becomes a little harder to make.
  15. I’d rather make sure we can lock up Julio, Grady, Deion, Keanu, and Hoop. Especially Grady, Deion, and Keanu because we saw how awful our D was last year without the entire spine of the unit intact.
  16. Omg it’s not even close already. Foye is an intimidating dude coming at you down hill, while Riley is busy staying blocked.
  17. I’m hoping they’ll let this kid play DE more now after losing Means for the year.
  18. Not going to click the link because I don’t want to give the ajc my click, but who ranked our draft 30 out of 32? And he just says it like it’s fact, some all knowing rating system that can perfectly grade draft classes before anyone has played a game.... **** D’led, he’s shown time and time again to be a piece of human garbage. This team is beyond moronic for keeping him around.
  19. Hopefully it’ll end up being a draft class we want to commemorate. I like the chances.
  20. **** we’re lucky Matt Ryan is made of rubber with as many hits he takes. Sheesh.
