  1. If he wins the job in training camp and is the best QB on the team then I say start him from now on....The only QB with experience in the NFL is Joey, Redman has just a few games under his belt and was out of football for a while....so throw the experience issue out (unless you want Joey) and let the best man start.

  2. the "experts" see all the changes in personnel and the youth movement and think "expantion team" when in reality most of the change in personnel and coaching staff was due to the fact that those players and or coaches just were not that good to begin with. Look how many released players are still out of work. also there is no other angle to report on. MV is old news, no disgruntled players (other than joe horn wanting out) just a workman like aproach to the work at hand, playing football, geting better as a team, signing draft picks, etc.

  3. I too have asked several of the Mod's to be a member of PF but have never even got a reply either yea come on or we don't want you and here is why.... I have learned how to read post in PF and much to my suprise I find BC there with the same crap he spreads here. If the standard for entry is who you know and who you asked then what is the point. I really haven't seen much over their lately anyway. my 2 cents worth

    can you name 1 veteran OL ...Pro Bowler....that makes what Jake Long signed for this year..........nope, me either
    emt861, what WOW server do you play on?

    I have no idea what you are talking about but if it was meant as a slam, then you missed. It was a genuine question for debate.

  5. I too was surprised by some of our draft picks.......but that was it, surprised. I wanted Dorsey to be the man in the middle but actually I was leaning towards Sedrick Ellis I think he will end up the better player. That being said I too began doing some recon on the picks we made, because some of them I had never heard of. The end result was that most of the players we drafted were highly ranked by most scouting systems....Ryan #1 rated QB in this draft on all boards, Loftin #3 ranked ILB on most boards, Baker no lower than 6th OL this year and 3rd last, Chevis Jackson top 5, DeCloud top 5, and on and on it goes. Player for Player this years draft has more quality than any Falcons draft I can remember. Yes until they face "proven" NFL competion we will not know, but on paper it looks better than in years past. All look to be 1) Smart, 2) Hard Working, 3) Good Citizens, 30 and most important "FOOTBALL PLAYERS".

    Thanks for a Good post

    Here's an easy one:

    This current Falcon is the only player in NFL history whose first 2 touchdown runs covered 69 or more yards.


    also - his first 4 rushing tds where over 50yards :)


    Also, his first NFL carry was for 13 yards.  His second NFL carry was for 16 yards.

    Can someone explain to me why Norwood doesn't get more touches?

    very poor coaching in the past...imo to loyal to starting running back....Dunn

  7. Pessimist's on this board almost always recant something they have heard on the media...ie; Baker has short arms, Ryan not best pick a number 3 overall, Dorsey best pick, didn't address OL and DL lines in the draft...... What I am saying is some people the "attention seekers" just like to pick fights with repeated gems of wisdom. The true fans disagree with passion and reason ie. CF while sometimes very negative he or she is at least consistant and original in his post.

    Thanks for a great post I have enjoyed the discussion.

  8. if you watch the video of Norwood running our line WAS opening some holes mostly on the right side of the line but if you really look there are some holes. I for one don't think that our line was a bad last year as everyone thinks. Yes we gave up sacks but we should have done better running the ball. Some sacks are caused by the QB not always by poor blocking.

  9. Please don't feed the trolls!.

    I have no problem with a "fan" who has a legitimate disagreement with a player, coach, etc...

    but not those that constantly whine and complain. If we do NOT respond in any way the post gets buried in the back pages, if we ignore long enough they will leave all together and this will return to a fan message board.

    Do I agree with all the front office moves, absolutely not. Do I support this team, h__l yes. Do I believe in everybodies rite to bi__h! yes I do but don't just bi__h to get a reaction from the rest of us.
