  1. Don’t know why anyone would expect anything different when the HC is still here. Its a mentality. Give me the name of the last soft spoken, unmotivational HC to win anything football...
  2. Troffed!!! JK...on the surface looks good, I’m sure we get cap relief in2020 and probably and out after 2021 season
  3. https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/1150839587964633088?s=20
  4. What folks need to realize is this: 2018 McCoy: 28 tackles, 6 sacks, 6 TFL, 21 QB hits 2018 Grady: 52 tackles, 6 sacks, 8 TFL, 16 QB hits 2018 was McCoys worst year in the last 6 years...he's a better DT than Grady, even at 31...
  5. I think its a very slim chance...but both of those dudes are at a rate below $1million....its not like they are heavily invested in them...so I wouldn't rule out yet...but McCoy would really have to want to play for us, b/c I think other teams will ahve more money available and just as good a cahnce at winning if not better (ie Colts)... But, playing next to Grady and with Senat, Crawford, and Davison as rotational guys...along with VB44, Takk, Clayborn on the edge....with DQ as DC....that could be enticing....and the opportunity to beat TB twice a year (ie sack Jamies)....and still hit Brees and Cam?? Who knows... CHances are less than 5% though...
  6. I don't think so.... GJ is a 50/50...that's a huge chunk of money that is in play for 2020 Keanu is the most likely candidate to not remain with the team. Box SS are dime a dozen...especially ones that can't catch and run 4.6 post ACL Deion Jones is the most important defender on the roster and he will get his extension Julio's extension won't hurt the team...and Sanu won't be on the team in 2020...thats another $7 million that will most likely be replaced with an early to mid round WR We also will either extend Mack or cut him...giving us another $5-10 million in cap space...and to that point, we wont have Ty or Wes under contract...but our other three (3) starters will be under contract for 4 years together... Matt Ryan can easily transfer his money to signing bonus and kick deferred "cap amounts" down the curb, but then he could do another extension that would make up for it to even it out... Devonta Freeman will be off the books in 2021 and we will never pay more than mid draft pick rookie salaries for RBs....thats another huge chunck of change... Plenty of money for FAs and have all of our draft capital... This team goes as Matt Ryan and the offense goes...not whether we have a premier DT or DE....that's reality....
  7. You betting on Ty to be a Pro Bowl player? C'mon man!
  8. McGary started 47 collegiate games at RT...he is NOT playing OG in the NFL... Best Case: Matthews, Carpenter, Mack, Lindstrom, McGary That puts 4 OL under contract for the next 4 years with Mack being the only player, who is a Pro Bowler and as long as his play doesnt decline, he will probably get an extension next season to spread out his money and reduce cap hits...
  9. No signs of issues with either of them... Brady 4300 yards 29 TDs 97 QB Rating Brees 4000 yards 32 TDs 115 QB Rating Both their coaches have adjusted scheme around them as they age. NO led league in rushing last year...Brees will play another 3-5 years of Thats how they want their offense to go and they are successful in it...
  10. The x factor is the improvement on the OL....giving MR2 time to read through progressions...any of the three (3) guys should go off and the others will take coverage away for this to happen...we talk a lot about Ridley as an outside WR...so was there an impact on Sanu inside? Well....what about Hooper? What were the rushing totals in games, since teams felt the "Ridley/Julio" effect...did this open up more rushing lanes, etc? I like the analysis...but I think these numbers will go back to the OL... 6 WOW games...15 sacks (2.5/gm) 10 low games....27 sacks (2.7/gm) There's a potential correlation between pressure and Ridley getting the ball more...no? I'd argue that also correlates with MR2's yds/attempt numbers being lower, thus more check downs, which also correlate with this: Hooper - 19 rec in the 6 WOW games (3.2 rec/gm) vs 52 rec in 10 other games (5.2 rec/gm)...there is a massive dependency there...you can also look up teh same for Coleman/Ito checkdowns in those games... It clearly evident that more time leads to more vertical routes and outside routes (ie to Ridley and thats also why there isnt much of a change in Julio's numbers), however when there is more pressure...MR2 clearly checks down to Hooper and RBs more frequently... Lastly, MR2s numbers are the worst (not bad), but the worst on 3rd down...20 sacks this past year in 168 dropbacks vs 14 sacks on 1st down in 281 dropbacks and 6 sacks on 2nd down in 184 dropbacks...QB rating correlates in those situations as well...He was sacked 27 times in the first half of games last year...thats crazy...and 32 times out of the shotgun....Something we all know is MR2 excels in No Huddle...127QB rating this past year There isnt anything Ridley is gonna do that will change the protection for MR2 in those critical 3rd down situations when defenders are revving their engines...
  11. The value prop on this is astronomical in comparison to say a DT on the line??? But one would wonder...what is the Falcons record when they give up less than 100 yards rushing? or say when they sack the QB 3+ times in a game? Falcons are the following in the last two (2) seasons: 11-3 when give up less than 100 yards rushing 8-2 when getting 3+ sacks in a game 5-1 when less than 100yds rushing and 3+ sacks 15 sacks given up in 4 games vs Saints.... 6-8 in games in which MR2 throws an INT 2-8 when MR2 is sacked 3+ times 5-0 when MR2 throws 2+ TDs and is sacked 1 or less times 6-0 when Falcons rush for 150+ yards 5-0 when 250+ passing and 100+ rushing on offense 8-3 when + TO margin All areas are highly important for NFL success, but I still think keeping Matt upright is most important....
  12. Probably right, but I will put the Falcons offensive total yards over/under at 6400 yards... We were at 5800 and 6200 the last two years...6600 in 16’ SB year...
  13. What I see here is that Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson are really good... And have probably over performed with sub par line play not just in 2018 but throughout their careers... It takes a team...That includes not just OL, but an entire defense, ST, and don’t forget coaching... BB and Brady don’t have the success without one another... Although is lean my argument more towards BB bc at some point he could get a QB that would win at least 1 Lombardi... If TB12 on another team, not sure if he’d have one... I digress...different subject, different, day... Glad we upgraded the OL for Matt...could we see 5000+ yards?
  14. 6’1 205 is about the same size as 6’2 230 By that relative weight logic, these boards should never complain about DL size... Thats a 12% difference... I guess 285 and 320 are about the same size....
  15. Where did you get this Tableau graph? And the data source?
