  1. Well, I was mainly talking about defense, and a good point you brought up. My bad for the confusion. I also confused myself.
  2. Next years opponents had a combined 150+ wins this year. It will be tough. The losing mentality needs to end.
  3. In each draft, a team probably drafts 2-3 starters, depending on their draft and how good the players are. It also takes about 2-3 years to develop a player, unless he's a running back. Rookie contracts are normally around 4 years depending on draft position. We need another starting OT, DT, DE or 2, SS, 2 OLBs, and maybe a CB. We also need another decent running back (2nd or 3rd rounder) to complement Turner because Turner is one-dimensional and he is getting too many carries. So it'll be a while before we fill up the positions. However, the thing is, AS we fill our roster up with talent
  4. They also make more money than we do though contracts, jersey sales, etc...
  5. Of course you can improve arm strength, but the difference between the strongest arms and just strong arms is god given. Just like speed, you can get faster, but there is only one Ussain Bolt.
  6. Arm strength (when it comes to throwing a ball) is a god given talent, not an acquired talent. It's just like those with top end speed.
  7. The 'process' has been going on for 42 years. Wonder when it ends...
  8. As of right now I see the organization starting Ryan just because we are paying him $72 million dollars. But we don't know how the QBs will do in training camp or exactly when Vick will be back. We also don't know if we will be picking up another QB or trading for one. We also don't know what injuries players may suffer from now until the start of next season. So your answer: as of now, Matt Ryan. And they have 5 rings, back to back winning seasons for the past couple years, etc... Something's working. -You have to look at how good a player is at the time he is being signed in order to f
  9. Already did, read my posts. This is me saying why we should be wary about the Cardinals game: http://life.atlantafalcons.com/index.php?s...p;#entry4341725 This is me rehashing as to what happened: http://life.atlantafalcons.com/index.php?showtopic=3827743
  10. Except in the business world and sports world, you can't really dwell on what he used to be able to do - you have to focus on what he is doing for us now. And right now he is slumping.
  11. Losses hurt when you become emotionally attached to a team - and the more you invest in high hopes for the team, the more it hurts when it doesn't turn out as expected. But that's a good thing though. All that means is that you are a true fan, and not a fairweather fan. You feel for the team when they do bad, and deservingly, you get to be more excited than others when the team does good. In any competition, there is always a winner and a loser, and unfortunately, we were losers today. But time will pass and with enough work, the losers will become winners.
  12. When you sign a FA, you have to look at his current worth. When we signed Turner, everybody thought he was a decent back, but it was questionable as to how he'd fair at starting RB. Signing him does not constitute signing a superstar, because he was not a superstar at that time. At that time, he was an OK back, that we overpayed for. Yes he turned out well (though one-dimensional), for every decent guy we sign that turns out to be good, we sign 2 or 3 guys that turn out to be poor. What has Von Hutchins done for us except be a Hartwell part 2? Brady is a superstar and was resigned - that'
