    If Tom Brady really wanted to he could probably play another 3 years. Even if he plays average he knows how to motivate his teammates. 

    Do you think that the Bucs will be a problem for the next few years? Or was last year Tom Brady's last hurrah and he hits the wall this year? I know Father time is undefeated but I think Tom Brady may beat Father Time until he's close to 50. 

    I'd say TB12 will be our nemesis, twice a year, for 2 more years --- if he stays healthy.

    Really curious to see how Smith approaches the RB position. Who will he pound the table for? How much will he emphasize the need to bring in a stalwart asap? How much will he be in Fontenot’s ear?

    I’m excited to getting back to a dominant running game ala Turner to compliment our pass game. Imagine if we had that with our current WR lineup.

    Can’t wait to see what happens!

    I feel confident that Arthur Smith and Terry Fontenot realizes we NEED another RB....who it'll be, is anyone's guess.  I would be happy with Harris, or that type Running Back....maybe even Ettienne.  I guess we have to leave it to the professional talent evaluators!  And I can't wait to see what happens, either!!!

    It was TD, not McKay. McKay got more involved after 2019. TD and DQ were reporting to Blank while McKay was busy with MBS. In 2020, McKay took over and TD DQ reported to him.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me.  I was thinking McKay handled the cap space (or lack thereof), along with TD...

    Tom Brady was $28 million against the Bucs cap - or about 14%

    Matt Ryan is going to eat up $41 million against the Falcons cap - or about 22%.

    As a matter of fact 4 players will eat up over 50% of the Falcons cap next year.

    Tampa had 8 players before it got to 50% of their cap space.

    The Falcons are not going to have anything close to what you saw from the Bucs last night.

    This is EXACTLY why McKay should have been fired, when Quinn and Dummytroff was!!!  He continued to put us further into "Cap ****".  I think, until he's gone, this team will never win a Championship --- :(

    If the Falcons stay at 3 what do you think that they do? Trade up for Trevor Lawrence? Draft a defensive player? 

    I think it's a little too soon to take a QB....maybe stay with MR2 for another year, mainly because the Cap Hit would be too great.  What we REALLY need is a monstrous DE!!!  Of course, it'll totally be up to the new GM and HC, not some poster here on TATF....LOL!

     

  6. I know, this was a meaningless game, at least for us, but I'm not gonna lie, I was pulling for a Victory over the Super Bowl Champs right up until Koo missed the kick to tie the game.  Of course, we could have still lost, and probably would have.  But then I thought, this loss just gives us a better Draft Pick....some consolation, huh?  Now, I just hope we lose to Tampa and not mess up our Draft pick!  Ahhh, the joys of being a Falcon Fan --- 🤪

    I been wanting to start this conversation for a while now but..

     

    Since 2008 we been "rising up"..

    😊i hate it.. actually never liked the phrase but understood it due to the state of the franchise AT THE TIME.

    So I'm asking...

    Am I the only one that's really for sum new?(other than "rise up" and better coaching)

    DQ always had sum cool saying on his shirts.....lets consult with him about a new phrase, he was really good at that...

    I'm just tired of embracing "rise up"..it sucks. 🤔(See what I did there?)

    What should our new motto/phrase/saying be if you had pick?

    I've never been a big fan of the Rise Up phrase, either.  It was alright at first, but just seems to be a worn-out old catch phrase now. 
    When you think about it, you have to be down to Rise Up....and that's the part I don't like! 
    Let's just strive to be a Winner, and the "catch phrase" will take care of itself!!!

    The thought of re-creating Kansas City South sounds very appealing on the surface because we have seen the recipe for the last NFL champion.  I understand this is a copycat league but few copycats actually experience the highs of those they seek to emulate.  See the long list of Belichick disciples that have mostly failed as head coaches.  Insert young offensive guru who will become the next Sean McVay, Kyle Shanahan (see why Adam Gase is still a HC).  The reality is that we will have Matt Ryan as our starting QB for 2020 and likely even 2021 due to his contract.  We need a coach and offensive coordinator that will get the most out of him and provide him with a strong running game.  Any coach should see the talent they have on the roster and put them in the best position to be successful.  This is what Smitty did in his early years.  He had a young and developing talent base and made limiting mistakes and using the run game to aid his young quarterback and also win the time of possession to help an undermanned defense.   Even Quinn hired KS who had a proven track record for the ground game during his time in Washington and Houston.  The explosive plays are important but this offseason should be about getting back to basics.  We can turn this thing around in a year or two but we can't make the mistake of falling for the fantasy that we can just emulate the high powered offense of the Chiefs.

    Not a fan of having a "boring" coach!  I've had enough of that, already....I want a younger guy with "fire in his gut"!!!  Not sure who that might be right now, though.  I guess we'll find out soon enough ---
