  1. I’ve told the story a bunch of times, but I went to Purdue with Rico and his wife (she was a graduate assistant at the time). Salts of the earth people and wish him and his family the ABSOLUTE best in the future. Grateful for his commitment to the Falcons and will always root for him
  2. I’m in the same boat. I trust this new regime until they give me reason not to. If they take BPA @ 4 I’m good with it. If they take QB @ 4 I’m good with it. If they trade back I’m good with it. only thing that would shock me in a bad way would be a trade up
  3. At this point it’s hard to take any possibility off the table, but I’m still gonna file this one under “things that will never happen”. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/news/2021-nfl-mock-draft-falcons-trade-up-for-zach-wilson-49ers-find-jimmy-garoppolo-replacement/
  4. 9 WRs total got votes. Ridley, Metcalf, and Beasley all got a single vote. It looks like all that got votes got in EDIT: 8 got votes, not 9. 1-3 got first-team, 4-6 got second-team, with Ridley Metcalf and Beasley in a three-way tie for 6th
  5. Don’t forget Grady Debo Foye AJ I’m counting Neal
  6. For the record: I’m taking a glass half full approach with this. We have a number of pieces who are recognized as among the best at their position. That’s something that we can take pride in as fans, and something that should be built upon to help propel us back into relevancy sooner, rather than later.
  7. For clarity purposes, there are 50 voters total with one vote each per position. WR: Ridley - 1 vote RG: Lindstrom - 3 votes DT: Jarrett - 2 votes LB: Jones - 1 vote K: Koo - 10 votes Source: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/01/08/full-vote-totals-for-2020-nfl-all-pro-team/amp/
  8. I think the Falcons handled this exactly how they should have. The biggest frustration fans had about TD and DQ was their willingness to give “their guys” 3rd, 4th, and 5th chances. Cutting bait now instead of stashing him for a MAYBE 6th round comp pick sends a clear message to everyone on this team. No more golden gooses. As a number of others have also pointed out, a new GM and head coach are more than likely going to turn over the roster a fair bit more, so I don’t realistically see us getting comp picks next year, or at the very least not for a player like Takk. At th
  9. Sorry, this wasn’t the best link, I don’t know why it doesn’t show Mack. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001108338/article/tom-brady-aaron-donald-headline-nfls-2010s-alldecade-team this one is better
  10. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001108338/article/tom-brady-aaron-donald-headline-nfls-2010s-alldecade-team Two Falcons made the all-decade team: Julio Jones Alex Mack Interesting to see who made the cut, and more importantly, who didn’t (only two QBs were Brady and Rodgers)
  11. The main reason Collins gets crap is because he played awful during the SB. People forget about his play during our run, such as the forced fumble against GB that started to break the game open
  12. He always had the physical tools, the knock on him out of college was play recognition. For a 4th round pick he exceeded most expectations for us. Never fully understood the hate for him here. Glad he’s making his money and wish him the best
  13. Sad, he was one of my favorites but his knees just aren’t the same. Hope he lands somewhere quickly. on a side note, I’m glad the Falcons waited until AFTER his birthday to cut him
  14. Best of luck Vic in your future endeavors! Thanks for the sack title in ‘16. Thinking this move benefits both parties
  15. Just because it was a meaningless victory to you, does not mean it was meaningless to our players, our organization, and other fans. no one knows what will happen to DQ after the season, but just because we are out of the playoffs does not undermine this victory, just like it didn’t undermine our victory vs the panthers in their otherwise undefeated season. this pic says it all: you think it was a meaningless win for MR2?
  16. Just to be clear, Cam Jordan was called for a block in the back for pushing Ryan to the ground. It was a nice stiff arm but it’s pretty clear that Cam was the reason Ryan ended on the turf
  17. The defense played PHENOMENAL football until midway through the 3rd qtr. they just ran out of gas - as any team would - after playing 90+ snaps. Freeney mentioned it how the Pats were cycling receivers and backs the second half. Debo Rocky Collins and Poole didn’t come off the field. Vic Grady Clay and Freeney hardly came off. When the offense went three and out repeatedly those guys got no time to catch their breath. SO many things went wrong that game, but the offensive playcalling compounded the defensive collapse.
  18. For as much as this year has sucked, #2 has me eternally optimistic. This year is beyond shot, but I’m hopeful for next year. Our window is open as long as this guy is in a Falcons uniform. Obviously just my opinion, and many on here want to move on from the ice man, but that’s my quarterback
