  1. Ok, I normally stay out of here because of craziness that goes on in this forum but I can't help but to put my .02 in this thread. The D'quell Jackson deal only has 19 million worth of guaranteed money in it. Yeah that is a lot for a Mike backer which isn't exactly at the top of the positional value totem pole, but it's also not a bank-breaking deal. Lofton is the leader of this defense. Yes, the Falcons haven't had an elite defense in a long time but that isn't Lofton's fault. He has basically made our run defense the respectable unit it is without a lot of help. Van Gorder keeping him
  2. I don't think Davis will be on the outside looking in. That will be Lawerence Sidbury JR.
  3. I watched him very closely during the Dolphins game and I came away very pleased in what I saw from the 7th rounder from South Carolina. He has tremendous hand speed and placement for a late draft pick. Time and time again I saw Matthews keep himself clean from an OT by slapping away his hands. This is something a lot of DEs have trouble with (Lawerence Sidbury) and it's very good sign for the young DE. He got close to the QB on a couple of occasions getting there once for 1 sack and was even a factor on running plays. It was a great showing for such a young player. Now am I saying he is
  4. I haven't been able to go to any of the practices. Has there been any news on Lawerence Sidbury?
  5. So are you taking donations now? I don't post as often as I used to but I'll def make an appearance to donate to the Hickry Stick!
  6. He would probably want to much money. Besides, he has really lost a couple of steps and has character concerns.
  7. I'd be fine with letting Trey Lewis go. Jonathon Babeneaux Brandon Mebane/ Barry Cofield/ Mike Patterson Corey Peters Periah Jerry Vance Walker That is a 5 man rotation that can stand up against anybody. Oh and everyone has injury concerns, superman doesn't exist. Assuming Jerry is going to come back wrecking people is reckless.
  8. I've always felt uneasy about our DT spot. Corey Peters played decently as a rookie but he appears to be physically limited. Peria Jerry might have a bounce back year from his knee injury, but he could just as likely flop. Vance Walker is a rotational role player who rarely makes any plays. Point is, I think the defense could really benefit from a couple of guys that won't break the bank and will add a lot of talent to the DT spot. DT Brandon Mebane The guy is young(26 years old) and is a solid 3-technique. Don't bother checking his stats, he doesn't get many sacks, but he does blow up pl
  9. I agree with this. It's either get bootlegs and buy my season tickets, or buy an expensive *** real jersey and watch it on my tv. I think they had rather me be at the games.
  10. The Falcons will go after Ray Edwards. I doubt Mathias or Charles Johnson leave their teams. Especially Charles Johnson. The dude isn't leaving Carolina.
  11. 192. P/K Matt Bosher, Miami I'm still scratching my head here. What is this guy going to do? Matt Bryant was great last year and we have Koenan who is a solid punter(though a UFA). I'll have to see how this pans out, but I'm not sure where this came from unless they think Koenan will want to much and Bryant is old. Grade: C 209. T/G Andrew Jackson, Fresno State I love this pick. Jackson could've went in the late 3rd and no one would balked at the pick. Jackson could play RT or move inside to Guard. This is the classic Falcons o-line player who can play multiple positions. Solid depth t
  12. 6. WR Julio Jones, Alabama The Falcons needed a playmaker on the offense and they made the move they needed to get their guy. Yes they gave up a lot, but now the Falcons offense is at an elite level. Teams can't simply slide one safety over to Roddy and drop the other in the box to stop Turner. Julio Jones is a perfect fit, plus this will push Roddy to stay on top. BUT if Jones flop this can really hurt the Falcons. Grade:B 89. LB Akeem Dent, UGA I'm not crazy about this pick. Dent is a MLB who is only a two down guy. I think the Falcons drafted him to replace Mike Peterson but I'm not
  13. I had them crossed to. Maybe he drops to the 5th? wishful thinking..
  14. Is it ok if I post this on the Georgia Outdoor Network forum and Walterfootball? I'm not going to take credit I'm just going to flaunt our pick haha.
