  1. this team has been basically awful to watch over the last couple of years I can't bring myself to watch an entire game--either knowing they will just disappoint with making other teams look great with fantastic comebacks or win against mediocre teams. Something has broken in me as a life long fan and I'm sure in many others. I really don't care if anyone says 'you're not really a fan" as I have been there cheering for years of ups and downs. I just don't care and that's the last thing Blank wants to hear from long time followers so I'm saying excitement needs to be brought back to th
  2. we have already failed winning more now means mediocrity in the future, just look what happened with our meaningless wins at the end of teh season last year. i agree with baptist I don't care about this team if we keep going 8-8 as a matter of fact wins like today just depress me and I can't sit through these wins against mediocre teams and pretending we have any hope at all against the elite teams i want at least a strong chance of making the nfc finals
  3. growing up in atlanta i'm used to primary red. black just doesn't look like the falcons any chance they will change unis next year with new coach?
  4. red with black trim is much better these are boring and generic
  5. what's discouraging is how incredibly hard it is to have a consistent winner and be able to fill in so many holes each year you fill a hole then he gets injured or old a first rounder never lives up to his hype it's exhausting thinking about all the options knowing the best laid plans usually fall apart this is why our super bowl loss was so maddening, a once in a lifetime chance the only hope I have is to get a great GM/coach why can't blank just hire a consistent winner or are those coaches just too rare to find typically?
  6. Please don't yell at me that we can't trade ryan and julio because of dead money--I agree that it may be impossible. This is only a question out of sheer curiosity. What could we get for both players traded to different teams and who would likely take them? On espn, they keep saying the patriots would love to trade for OBJ (but know it's unlikely) to compete against the chiefs and baltimore. That sort of scenario. would be intriguing to have three first rounders next year (including a top ten pick bc we suck) and a new coach. a cause for hope. yeah I know it probably won't (or can't)
  7. yes but is he the best choice we could have gotten? we always seem to barely miss the better choices like kinlaw, delpit etc
  8. a bit discouraging he wasn't in g-dawg's top twenty for second day Justin Madubuike, DT - Texas A&M A.J. Epenesa, DE - Iowa Zach Baun, LB/EDGE - Wisconsin Nevin Gallimore, DT - Oklahoma Ezra Cleveland, OT - Boise State J.K. Dobbins, RB - Ohio State Jeremy Chinn, S - Southern Illinois Jordan Elliott, DT - Missouri Lloyd Cushenberry, C/OG - LSU Ashtyn Davis, S - Cal Matt Hennessy, C - Temple Davon Hamilton, DT - Ohio State Curtis Weaver, EDGE - Boise State Willie Gay, OLB - Miss. State Julian Okwara, E
  9. where was he ranked as a Defensive tackle/DE prospect? is he typically thought as one of the top 5 in the draft, or a reach?
  10. yes there are die hards who want to win despite all consequences. But what I care not at all about is seeing a mediocre team winning meaningless game--or better, many fans just stop watching altogether. I tried but just couldn't watch this team the last half of the season for more than a few minutes here and there. All I care about is getting to a super bowl and to do that we needed very high draft picks given how little money we have for FAs. In my world, that makes me a fan. I'm just not blindly loyal--it hurts too much to see us mediocre year after year. It's a little like the Sou
  11. I won't hide my disgust over what just happened. Months of us all thinking a multitude of creative scenarios for nothing. Anyway,... so who are we picking 2nd and 3rd round? got to have some hope!
  12. AMEN never been so discouraged as a fan, just meh we HAD to bring in talent this year to be anything more than mediocre how is it people on this board figure out such creative scenarios, and our GM can't even think to move back and get picks along with a great safety or the second best DE in the draft? 7-9 next year if we're lucky with so many good teams to play, but hey maybe tickets will be cheaper
  13. kinlaw after trade down and loss of third round pick
  14. so will tampa be! can't wait for those games with them, another chance at Brady!
  15. would it be better to select a cornerback or safety in the first round given our needs? how far off in abilities are the other cornerbacks from henderson?
  16. wouldn't it cost less to go with kinlaw (at around pick 10-12) as opposed to Brown (around pick 8)? We'd lose a 3rd rounder for kinlaw and 2nd rounder for brown, I suspect. is there much difference between them?
  17. just realized that it's not thursday got a little too excited question still remains--one day later thanks
  18. Just wondering about what time the falcons will pick at 16 tonight? IF we trade up to around pick 10, what time will that be approx? Will the actual draft start at 8 or is that just when the commentators begin talking? Same question for picks in second and third rounds on friday of course if we pick Young at pick 2, no picks tomorrow!
  19. a lot better than our new almost monochrome ones. I just don't understand why people don't prefer mainly red with some black. All black just doesn't look very falcon like
  20. wouldn't we have to go down to about #11 to get kinlaw?
  21. sorry I'm confused about the red helmet will that be our helmet for this upcoming season or the year after?
  22. much prefer a predominance of red over almost all black the hybrid red/black looks horrible very disappointing
  23. except we never would have had the 4th pick without tanking! I'd take 1989 Fan's picks any day over what we will end up with. I agree I shouldn't have been so sensitive though, I really didn't mean to make it controversial and was trying something different from "those threads made all the time" A thought experiment with an underlying point--without bold long term thinking (and risk taking) Blank will never produce what we all want. I think it will be a good draft, but we probably need better than good if we want to do more than Blank's attitude of just needing to make the playoff
