  1. What is Khalil Mack’s win rate? If he ain’t first, that stat is garbage bc he has been the most dominant defensive player this year
  2. No. At some point this team needs to make hard business decisions to win... That includes no Neal and Hooper...not worth the money
  3. I’m assuming win rate isn’t one guy...I’m assuming it’s a calculation. If 4 guys rush and the team win rate is 50% or greater....then two guys are “winning” or beating their man... they aren’t getting sacks though, so either they are missing tackles, the blitz scheme isn’t good or coverage isn’t holding up on backend NE and CAR aren’t even on the list and they lead the league in sacks...
  4. The win rate they calculating is weak...with that win rate, you’d think it would translate into more than 5 sacks...31st in the NFL
  5. Look at Mahomes years with Kingsbury at TT. I think it’s like BB and TB12...Can’t have one without the other and expect similar results...
  6. Exactly. McCarthy is the best candidtate in 2020...Period. 9 winning seasons in 13, 1 SB... better than Falcons during same time period.
  7. Football is football regardless of level. Sarks numbers are better than every offense in CFB for the most part when most teams are playing cupcake schedules to this point... And his numbers were nearly equal if not better than Shannys in year 1 and way better than DKs right now... Peoples problem is they view the 2016 season as a norm when in fact it was historic and the top end of the spectrum. Anything short of it is seen as a failure... Meanwhile the defensive side of the ball expectation is to have 11 guys on the field...
  8. Nope, but they putting up numbers... TEN, IND ain’t exactly world beaters and MIN team that struggled in secondary last year shouldn’t have been difficult..
  9. Meanwhile, Sarks ability is so awful he’s back ALA as the OC calling plays for the #2 scoring offense, #3 ypg offense in the nation... Go figure... Falcons gonna Falcon...
  10. Boo-hoo.... Andrew Luck retired two weeks before the season started...they are 2-2 and beat said Falcons... How many teams with backup QBs have similar or better records than Falcons? You won’t like the answer... How many OL injuries have the Pats stealth with this year? Excuses...that protect an inept HC, poor defensive game planning, and poor offensive adjustments. Lastly, injuries don’t explain the penalties and turnovers...blocked punt, missed FGs...
  11. Just to toss another tidbit at you as to why its more than MR2... Just in 2018 and 2019...obviously poor years for Falcons... the Falcons have 3 out of the 19 total punts blocked...out of 319 NFL football games... Death by 1000 paper cuts should be Dan Quinn's new catch phrase, slogan for the team! Other reasons...this new DQ defense so far... 5 teams sacks through 4 games...that is 31st in the NFL...look at what CHI just did to the ViQueens, also that is agst Mariota and Brisett...come-on... For reference on this issue: FOr the same time period (2014-2019 seasons), the Falcons ahve 156 sacks (1.85 sacks/gm) versus a random team in the Steelers who ahve 241 sacks during the same time period (2.86 sacks/gm)...that one sack difference could easily be a 3rd down play that gets the defense off the field and stops a TD scoring d The difference in those cumulative numbers 241-156 = 85 sacks...if you split that up into two seasons (42 adn 43) that diferrence would put the falcons in the Top 5 in the NFL in the last two seasons in sacks...and thts the difference!!!!!! The problem is no Matt Ryan.... And that fact that we quadrupled down on OL this off season at the expense of the defense and Dan Quinn's supposed briliance was a huge mistake and it will cost him his job, this season, and another year of Ryan dn Julio in their aging prime years...
  12. Here's the reality... Matt Ryan's supporting cast on defense and/or ST along with HC decisions has not won games when he doesn't have his best day. Furthermore, when he does have his best day, the same also holds true and its even a larger dependency than his counterparts. In your time span (since 2013, thus 2014-2019 seasons), the W-L records for 100+ QB Rating games and QB Rating less than 80 games in comparison to several other NFL QBs.... Matt Ryan 100+ QB Rating Games = 42 games out of 84 (50%) with a record of 29-13 (.690 win %) <80 QB Rating Games = 15 games out of 84 (17.9%) with a record of 5-10 (.333 win %) Drew Brees 100+ QB Rating Games = 46 games out of 82 (56.1%) with a record of 33-13 (.717 win %) <80 QB Rating Games = 14 games out of 82 (17.1%) with a record 7-7 (.500 win %) Tom Brady - 37-4 (100+) and 6-7 (<80) 100+ QB Rating Games = 41 games out of 80 (51.3%) with a record of 37-4 (.902 win %) <80 QB Rating Games = 14 games out of 80 (17.5%) with a record of 6-7 (.429 win %) Aaron Rodgers 100+ QB Rating Games = 36 games out of 77 (46.8%) with a record of 31-5 (.861 win %) <80 QB Rating Games = 14 games out of 77 (18.2%) with a record of 3-11 (.214 win %)
  13. McCarthy might be a good one and on the short list...
  14. I live in Indy and watch them too... I still think he is a viable candidate depending on OC and DC he would bring... The problem the Falcons will ahve is who is out there? The year to get a coach was this year...there are no re-treads outside of 1-2 guys... Maybe a college guy? Would AB really take a chance on say Kellen Moore or someone young?
  15. Underachieved? Explain... Tell me who was on his defenses.... Ty Hilton and a 35 year old Reggie Wayne isnt exactly talent... RBs???? The OL was so good, Andrew Luck retired before 30... Pagano didnt draft the talent, but he actually overachieved...until the bad drafting caught up to him... His 4-12 year was without Luck... Outside of that, he had no losing seasons...went 11-5 with a rookie QB... 3-3 career playoff record... He would fit what AB will want in a HC... People will want flash hires, but that is not AB... Look at that defense in CHI right now...yea they've got studs, but they also play with a swagger in them...and there is good scheme with blitzing, multiple fronts, etc.
  16. Chase Young...tank for CHase Young...b/c there wont be Beasly back adn Takk will be in his last year...
  17. Yep...21 games under DQ where the Falcons havent hit the 20 point mark...Birds are 1-20 in those games...the defense cant win a game when the offense doesnt have it, but too often the offense is inept...during that same time period, the Pats have had 8 such games...
  18. Pay Kyle Shanahan whatever it takes...JK... My top list: Eric Beinemy (KC OC...he's gotta be on anyone's list regardless if Andy is the man) Chuck Pagano (did well in Indy, never got the OL talent needed, look at that Bears D?) Honestly, I don't really like anyone else out there...Maybe Josh McDaniels b/c he's seen how to do things so well, but he went back to NE after getting the IND job, so not sure there College Guys - Lincoln Riley, David Shaw, Chris Peterson
  19. 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...
  20. Troffed!!! JK...on the surface looks good, I’m sure we get cap relief in2020 and probably and out after 2021 season
  21. https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/1150839587964633088?s=20
  22. 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...
  23. 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...
  24. 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....
  25. You betting on Ty to be a Pro Bowl player? C'mon man!
