  1. My bad, i gave bad info. It will be turf in the new stadium. http://www.myajc.com/news/sports/new-falcons-stadium-will-have-artificial-turf/nbbTp/ I know they wanted grass badly, didn't know that they found out it wasn't feasible. That sucks.
  2. Yeah, the open roof allows us to have grass on the field.
  3. Ryan didn't have a great game but he is way better than just average. He is a top 7 QB in the league.
  4. Do not sign old running backs. It would be a horrible signing. Running back is a position you need youth in and a position where players get old stupidly fast. If we signed Lynch we'd have to give him outrageous money which he will guaranteed not be able to live up to given his age. RBs rarely are elite after the age of 30. Lynch will be 29 next season.
  5. These are awesome hirings. It's really too bad Dimitroff is still our GM, though. That is a big mistake IMO.
  6. Quinn isn't a known name. I am not sure who you could think it is a PR hire when the guy isn't well known at all. He isn't a name like Rex Ryan...not even close. If the Falcons wanted a PR move, they would have hired Rex, without a doubt.
  7. I will be pissed if we miss out on Rex. The Jets had the very worst GM in the NFL. That is why they sucked. Rex was the only reason they weren't a 1-15 team this year. The guy is a miracle worker with defenses.
  8. The NBA will not allow the Hawks to be moved out of Atlanta. Atlanta is a very big market and well suited for basketball. The league would block any move to have the team leave this city.
  9. Ah, ok, cool. I am glad they both landed back on their feet and you are right, I heard Chris on some national show up here. Thanks for the update.
  10. Wait, Steak Shapiro has a job again? I moved to NYC a year ago and have been out of the loop. Is Chris Demino working anywhere? Actually, I think he works up here in NYC now, right?
  11. No, our defense really was that god awful. Football Outsiders are the best stat gurus in regards to football and their end of season stats clearly show Atlanta's defense was the very worst defense in the entire NFL: http://www.footballoutsiders.com/dvoa-ratings/2014/final-2014-dvoa-ratings The defensive ranking column 3rd from the right is the column to see the defensive rankings 1 through 32. We came in at 32 by quite a margin, 2.1% lower than the 2nd worst defense, New Orleans. Our offense was ranked 11th so that isn't where the problem obviously is. We need a defensive minded head coach, not some supposed offensive guru like McDaniels or Gise.
  12. He is the absolute last of the potential candidates that I want as our head coach, the absolute last. I'd rather we go after a college head coach than hire McDaniels.
  13. We already have a top 10 offense and easily have the very worst defense in the entire NFL. How stupid would we be to hire an offensive minded head coach? That would be positively asinine.
