  1. This posting is pretty Obtuse. Nothing needs rebuilt except the coaching staff. You could take this team as-is and make a strong run at the playoffs, with an HC, OC and DC that actually had spines and knew how to coach professional adult men.
  2. I was driving home during the game yesterday and just had the game cast on my phone. At half time my son calls me (he isn't a Falcon's or a Cowboy's fan) and says, "so old man, how long will it take for the Falcons to give this game away?". The sad thing is, that is what I was thinking before he called. We were gifted two touchdowns and should have had at least one more. This coaching staff is straight-up, 100% trash. Does anyone think Dan Quinn would be offered a HC job by any other team in the NFL? We have pretty much wasted one of the top 10 QB's to ever play the game and probably one
  3. I think it's going to happen, but I will say this. I don't think they will let fans in for a while and I bet the NFL owners get a shock at how much they really don't need shinny new stadiums. People are going to realize that watching the game on a big screen, with decent food and drinks is a lot more appealing. The preseason is also going to be real interesting.
  4. I think that what all these QB's moving is telling us is that the QB position is overpaid. At least that is what it looks like to me. Teams are taking a hard look at what their QB is really worth in the team sport environment. They will / should always be the highest paid position, but some of the contracts are getting ridiculous. Mahomes is going to be a really interesting situation when it comes time to extend him. Contracts for quality starting QB's are going to regularly hit and exceed 35 million a year. What else can you do with that money? Does the QB consistently produce enough t
  5. Under 19 and this virus has killed exactly zero people in the US. How many 19 year olds or younger have died in car accidents. This disease isn’t about the virus, it’s about the virus and comorbidity factors. It’s has multi variant causality, as do most disease states. The Thermo Fischer’s testing platform just went from being able to run 16 tests a day to over 10,000. Yes, we are going to see a huge spike in reported cases.
  6. Those numbers do not show comorbidity factors.
  7. all numbers below are from the CDC or WHO databases: 90 people die every day in the us due to car accidents; 1200 die every day due to smoking; 822 due to obesity; 85 due to firearms; There have been between 16,000 and 22,000 seasonal flu deaths in the US this year* as of 9am on 20March2020, there have been 218 Coronavirus deaths in the US *the exact number of flu deaths is hard to determine because many fatalities of the sick and elderly are never confirmed by tests as being caused by the flu
  8. Since it was brought up. The data shows, and I mean the real data and not the garbage the media and moronic governmental officials and publishing, that if you are under 60, have no comorbidity factors such as immune compromised, smoker, obese or have pulmonary disease, COVID-19 is less harmful then the flu. If you don’t believe that go to any site such as the CDC or WHO, where they are now reporting individual cases and find a single healthy 30 - 50 year old that has even been hospitalized. Mass testing has just begun and what the data is showing is that many people are infected, or have be
  9. Coaching was better, overall talent was better, drafting was better.
  10. He is absolutely correct. The best thing this team could do is rebuild. Sorry, but this version of the Falcons is done and there is nothing that is going to fix it. I think we need to keep Grady and DJ, figure out a way to sign Hooper and then start cutting. Freeman and trufant should be first. I hate to say it, but we need to get rid of Julio. No way we could trade him, so a straight up cut might need to be the case. Yes, Julio is the best WR in the game, but no person who touches the ball 12 times a game should get a contract over 12M a year. No team has ever won a Super Bowl h
  11. He should have said this when people asked him about Ryan, Julio and Grady.
  12. Tabeek is a ra-ra guy who is also a football moron. The Falcon's completely cleaned house with their media department a few years ago and this is the only guy they could find who would constantly spin the Falcons in a positive light no matter what was happening on the field or at the branch. He hasn't had one critical evaluation of anything since he has been reporting for the Falcons. I could care less what he says about the draft, even if it mattered. I'm sure it won't be based on any intel he might be able to get (because he doesn't get any) or any true critical evaluation of what th
  13. In another two years the Pats will be a perennial 8 - 8 or 7 - 9 team like they were before '91. They had a really good run and did some incredible things, but their time is over. There will be about six fans in the stands in Foxboro in a couple of years. The past is all they have to hold on to.
  14. You are not wrong, but I will say that an offense that can control the clock and take away opportunities for the other teams offense to be on the field, really helps the defense. The 2016 Falcons are a great example of that. For most of the year, Shanahan's ego was in check and we ran the ball effectively. Helps the offense obviously, but also helped the defense. In the Superbowl the ego took over and not only did we not run three times and kick a field goal, but the Patriots ran something like 90 offensive plays to our 60. If we ran just 5 more times in the second half, we would not have
  15. This is the Falcons. They are going to do exactly the opposite of what they should and what makes good football sense. They will keep Freeman and let Hooper walk. They made their mistake is giving Freeman the contract. Every year since then is just denial at the highest level. We will probably draft another WR and corner back in the first two rounds. That's the logic of this organization (or lack thereof). This team needs to fix the lines and use the fourth or fifth rounds, or FA to get a 220+ pound back that can make one good cut and run hard. Won't happen.
  16. The Super Bowl is going to be the 49ers against the Titans.
  17. That’s not true. The Panthers tried to let him heal natural and put him on IR with the designation to return. He was is such bad shape they shut him down for the year around week 11.
  18. He will run. That is the problem. Cam can’t throw so he has to run. He has been a man ineffective runner the last two years regardless of how much he ran. That is why the coaching staff was pleading with him to stay in the pocket. His foot is not the issue. It’s his knee and hip. The foot injury was caused by all the other problems with his body. It came out of no where this year.
  19. Oh no, he has leg issues too. The foot injury that knocked him out this year was not new.
  20. He did run a bit in 2018 and got ripped apart by it from the coaching staff and local media. Rivera made it clear that for him to be effective and the team to win he had to be a drop back passer. It’s probably what hurt Rivera the most. Cam is a lot more banged up then the national media reports.
  21. I’ve lived in N.C. for 15 years and unfortunately have to listen to Panthers garbage all the time on the radio. Carolina does not want Cam running. 2015 almost ended his career and with the exception of 2015 the panthers do worse when he runs. The last three years have been about trying to make him a pocket passer and not letting him run. There is no way you can consider Cam a running or even mobile QB any more.
  22. Saints playoff record last three years: 2 - 3 Falcons playoff record last three years: 3 - 2 Congrats, I guess.
  23. Brady without Belichick is just a 40 something year old 7th round draft pick. Not too worried.
  24. Played well. What??? He had a 3.6 ypc average and racked up a whopping 656 yards and 2 TD rushing. That is average backup production. He was almost more productive as a receiver with 410 yard and 4 TD's receiving, but those stats are still meh and not top tier. When you average 46 yards a game rushing and 29 receiving you better not be getting top tier money and he is. The Oline is obviously a problem, but there are too many other average backs with better numbers and bad lines. Freeman needs to go, but he probably won't because this coaching staff refusing to make any changes that
  25. He got where he is by borrowing a significant amount of money for his father, a good idea, and being at the right place at the right time. Since then he has been fortunate to have a stellar board of directors. Don’t think Blank is some kind of superstar businessman. He’s not. He is proving not to be a very effective owner either.
