  1. No, that is because Brees was traded out and Leftwich was injury prone. However, Brees did pretty well until everything else could get going, as did the others I mentioned. QBs take time to get fully devoloped, and having them before everything else is set up is a plan that has worked many times over. Contrary to what your OP states. Quarterbacks also fail when the missing pieces are not there. Take Joey Harrington and David Carr for example. Part of the reason they failed was because of a missing offensive line. Now that the Texans have finally started building a foundation, their team is f

  3. Or does the rookie who has the 72 mil 34 mil bonus? One that has TONS of questions about him too. Goes back to what I originally said, had we traded to the 10th spot for a 1st and 2nd and next yrs 1st. Then we could have EASILY traded back up to the 7th spot for a 1st and 3rd and either taken him or Ellis. This is what happens when you have King Arthur controlling the draft. Exactly. King Arthurism involves paying huge amounts of money to a quarterback while leaving the rest of team depleted of money. Why don't we ever pay money to our key defensive players? Patrick Kerney anybody? DeAng
  4. I care about us winning games too. But just finding a QB and not having supporting won't change much. Thanks for adding to the discussion. There is no discussion. There is only you posting your same old negative "Blank can't do anything right" crap. What is there to talk about? You have been on here forever posting this same diatribe for the last year. No one really cares what you have to say, so the best thing to say is: GO AWAY! If King Arthur could do something, wouldn't you think we would have won a Superbowl by now? Or maybe even experienced back to back winning seasons. Oh, and did
  5. Again, I haven't insulted you guys in any way. I happen to like the Falcons. Did Brees lead them anywhere? Did Leftwich? Only when both teams got a good defense and line did they start winning. Quarterbacks can't succeed if they don't have the right supporting cast.
  6. There's many things one can discuss about. One can discuss what he or she thinks about King Arthurism. One could also compare and contrast King Arthurism with the philosophy of other organizations. Well then you have to wonder, does King Arthur want to win games or does he just want to make a few dollars? Why do you have over 3000 posts?
  7. Falcons agreed to terms with No. 3 pick Matt Ryan. NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports it's a six-year deal worth a maximum value of $72 million. $34.75 million is guaranteed. - - - With Matt Ryan signed to a deal that makes JaMarcus Russell's deal look like pocket change, King Arthur has effectively made himself and Matt Ryan marked men. Not only is Ryan now bound to this team, but with this amount of money flowing into his bank account, he has little room for failure. Actually he has no room for failure. Any wrong step and die hard fans would cry for his head. While it's good and all to p
  8. I wouldn't be so sure about that. Once he sees that games are blacked-out, he might have to put in Matt Ryan just to attract more fans. Winning secures tickets and attracts fans but so do players. If Matt Ryan were to play, I'm sure more people would attend the games just to see how Ryan does. There are also Matt Ryan fans, who come to the game just to see their player play.
  9. So you rather have me make a new thread each time I want to respond? This just makes less threads for the boards.
  10. What are you talking about? This is the only name I have. Awesome, another guy that knows what arguement I was making! Thanks Yes, and I am John Kincade. :w00t: This just makes no sense at all. Why would I have two accounts if one can do the job? It just wastes time, effort, and energy.
  11. boy thats funny. i didn't see vick mentioned in his opinion. to put it short, he thinks until we prove we are a better team we shouldn't break the shiny new toy just out the box till the pieces around it are better. Dude, I can't believe it! You are the first guy that ever gets my posts! Thanks man! Good summary too.
  12. King Arthur may be rich, but that doesn't me that he couldn't use a few extra dollars. As a businessman, he's always looking to make more. My post had nothing to do with Vick and was more about if King Arthur and Matt Ryan and how King Arthur may choose to start Ryan for a few extra bucks.
  13. With Matt Ryan soon to be committed on paper, the only thing left to decide is who will start at the quarterback position at the beginning of the season? While the obvious choice may be to allow Matt Ryan to learn from the sidelines and permit Chris Redman to continue his success from last year, King Arthur may have different notions. The signs our blatant, King Arthur wants his riches and jewels and he wants them now. Matt Ryan was not drafted with the sole intention of bettering the troubled franchise, but rather he was picked as a 'quick face-lift' to a franchise marred by the departure o
  14. He never outright stated that because that would be bad for his PR, but the hiring of Smith and TD, the recent signings, the draftees, other roster moves, and the numerous interviews all point at King Arthur wanting to create a 'clean' image for his team. And how do you create a clean team? You get rid of 'thugs', malcontents, and trouble-makers. Ohhhhhhhh. So these are just assumptions that you are making. Well now, that does make quite a difference in what we are talking about here. Again, I think you are upset because Vick and Hall are no longer here and you want to throw a blanket over any
  15. In this thread, I'm pointing out the fact that if King Arthur keeps Boley, it'll go against his goal of creating a clean image for his team, thus being irrational. It's irrational because what type of message what that send to everybody else? It's ok to commit small crimes because I'll still be on the team? In my other thread, I'm criticizing the fact that he became too involved in the draft and not allowing the coach and GM to pick their players. If King Arthur wanted to have long-term success, then he needs to not be rash and draft a player to become the 'face' of the franchise. He needs

  17. Read what I wrote and read what you wrote again. I'm saying that it will be irrational for King Arthur to go back on his word when he wants to rid the team of 'thugs.' I'm also saying that you must be a rational owner to have a successful business. I'm criticizing his irrational decisions because I want him to be rational. If that makes any sense.
  18. How so? I'm just using allusions. And even if I were using hyperboles, what's wrong with that? It's part of the English language for a reason.
  19. Privately or publicly owned, it's still a business, which is still bound to the customers. If King Arthur loses support because of his decisions, then the business may collapse. We all know that numerous black outs is a very real possibility next year. That is a distinct possibility, and I won't disagree with that. What I'm saying is that no one will be able to at any time bring a lawsuit against Blank for having a crappy football team, which you seemed to have implied in your earlier post. If people could have done that, the Smiths would have been broke long ago. You are wrong again. He CAN d
  20. Sadistic crap? Am I preaching about the devil now on these boards? All I'm doing is stating my opinion. Oh, and in case you didn't notice, you used a little too much of 's.
