    After all the "edgy" naysayers piled on the hate wagon, I was curious as to whether or not day 2 would reveal any of the magnified negative perspective after such an exhaustive critique on day one.
    Nope. Still FIYAHHH!!!!!

    Upstate NY Falcon reacted to Libid21 in Does anyone have any N95 masks?   
    I figured I would try on here. If anyone just happens to have any N95 masks I would appreciate if you sent me a message and I would pay you for it (and pay you to ship it to me). Our hospital has just run out and the county I happen to be working in is right next to NY and is the hardest hit county in CT. Just a random plea in case anyone happened to know of anywhere that had some lying around! Thank you!

    Upstate NY Falcon reacted to FenixFalcon in Antonio Brown says Julio Jones not the best receiver   
    Found this fun tidbit with Brown running his big mouth. The article writer sums it up nicely, but there's no comparison. Brown is an embarrassment. Give it up for our guy Julio, the best reciever in football and possibly, the best receiver to ever play the game.

    Falcons: Jobless Antonio Brown takes a jab at Julio Jones
    Leave a Comment / Falcons / By Chase Irle / March 29, 2020 These days, if Antonio Brown is in the headline, it’s a safe bet it’s because he is doing something insane. And while this is far less outlandish than some of the other things he’s done over the past year, it still shows the part of his brain that controls logic is missing. On Instagram live, Brown had this to say in regards to who the best receiver in the world is today and specifically took a shot at Julio Jones.
      1,823 people are talking about this
      Of course, it’s challenging to be the best receiver in the game, when you’re technically not even in the game. Who knows if Brown will ever return to the NFL, but the stats (outside of touchdowns, which is the only thing Brown conveniently mentions) do not agree with his claim. He has played in five more games than Jones over their careers and has nearly 1,000 fewer yards. Jones averages over ten more yards per game played and nearly two more yards per reception.
    And Pro Football Focus agrees. Not only do they have Jones as a better receiver than Brown, but they have him as the best receiver in the game since 2006:
    Look, I have nothing against Antonio Brown, the player. He is a bonafide stud, and at his peak, he’s probably the only receiver in the league that could compare to Julio Jones (they were indisputably the two best receivers in football from 2014-2018). The difference is Jones is still doing it while nobody wants Brown anywhere near their franchise. Julio is a leader by example that every organization dreams of having, and at 31 years old, he’s just getting started. Brown may never touch an NFL football field again. If I were him, I’d worry about working my way back into the league rather than calling out a true professional — and the best wide receiver in football.

    Upstate NY Falcon reacted to Francis York Morgan in For the Gurley Signing Haters: 10 Reasons   
    First off, know this much - I get you. At least on a surface level, it looks like we traded Free, a guy who a lot of TATF liked, for a guy with similar injury issues, a guy who had a down year, and we did it with money that could've been dedicated to the defense. But let me point out a few things that have me high as Khalifa on this Gurley signing.
    1) Contract conditional on physical: Gurley's deal with us is conditional on him passing a physical, which means if his knee is really as bad as everyone's making it out to be, he won't count a penny against our cap. Plain and simple.
    2) Low risk: This contract is for just one year. And his injury isn't ligament damage - it's arthritis. I have yet to hear about someone with an ACL injury that doesn't have some form of arthritis. It's incredibly manageable at 25. Again, this guy is just 25. The people worried about this are mostly going off what others say. Sure, I wouldn't give Gurley 30 carries every game, but he's not this fragile butterfly you have to tiptoe around. And again - if he fails the physical, we're not on the hook for a dime.
    3) The money's right: This move doesn't just mean we get Gurley for a year on 5 mil. It also means we can move on from Hill if no one bites on the 5th round tender (it isn't likely) and save another 2.3 mil or so. Then, we either sign him back or draft a RB in a loaded draft. And we don't even know the breakdown - there could easily be incentives and injury stipulation in the contract. It's such a win-win I can barely understand the gripes.
    4) Post June 1st workings: I was annoyed with Tru being designated a Post June 1st cut because it didn't help us with signings at the beginning of FA and it didn't help us with the draft class signings since it wouldn't come free until all our draftees were signed. Well, Gurley was a Post June 1st cut too. What does that mean? His money doesn't even hit the cap till June 2nd. In other words, the money we freed up from Tru (10.75 mil) is going to great use when it likely would have sat for months otherwise. Those saying we should have signed defensive players with it, what D guys are you even talking about? I don't see a single guy with a June 1st designation that was released that interests me. It'll only help with the guys still chillin once June 2nd hits, and the Gurley signing doesn't impact that at all imho.
    5) Insanely high reward: This can't be overstated. People saying Gurley had his "worst year," were you around in 2016? He averaged 3.2 ypc and had less yards and TDs than 2019. And that year, it wasn't because he was barely being used. He was just worse. They stacked the box against him, forcing Goff to beat them, and he just couldn't. Why? Because Goff ******* blows. When McVay leaned on Gurley this year, it largely worked, except that OL...oof. Go back and watch All 22 of Gurley, it's free. That trash OL is getting him hit behind the line every play. He gets even one step and it's a first down, if not more. There were so many plays Free hesitated or was too slow on that Gurley makes a big gain in his place. Also, in 2017 and 2018, the offense was marginally better, and they couldn't stack the box against Gurley as well. Here? See my next point.
    6) Gurley won't be the focus of the defense: And if he is, defenses will get punished. Holy ****, we have SO many weapons compared to the Rams. Our play action game is going to be lethal if Koetter's dumb *** even begins to get into a groove. He has an obscene amount of weapons at his disposal. I'd love to see teams leave 6 or 7 in the box against Gurley like we faced so often last year. He's going to make them pay, especially if our OL takes the next step like I believe they will.
    7) Fan turnout: Sure, this is kinda cheating since it's for AB more than anyone, but I bet sales are gonna pop off with Gurley here. It's a fairweather fanbase. Just the way things are. But if we get a legitimate homefield advantage, games are going to be so much more fun to watch. I'm hopeful.
    8) McVay is arrogant: And not in the same way Shanny was. Call it rumor and hearsay if you like, but I've heard that there were issues on McVay's part where he didn't like that Gurley got so much credit for the team's success compared to him and Goff. He was a team captain every year minus 2019. Wonder why? And so much of the creativity with Gurley died in 2019 compared to years past. Then there are the games where he was killing it (Pittsburgh, Carolina, both with 6+ YPC) and he only got 12 and 14 carries in each game (respectively). Both were one score games and they were 1-1 in them. There was no reason not to lean on Gurley. Trust me - there were issues there, and a lot of Rams fans have been saying similar things about McVay either not using Gurley or using him poorly.
    9) The draft opened up: I like the RBs in this draft a lot. But it sucks when you're hemmed into taking a position. As is, we were practically locked into taking a RB and CB with two of our first three picks, and arguably a LB in those first three two. That's all needs-based drafting. I hate strictly needs based drafting. This move means we have so much more flexibility. Can we still draft a RB? Sure. I'd love it tbh. But now we don't have to. And we can have more BPA drafting in general. This is all good news, folks. Not to mention, if he balls out, we get a comp next year if he walks.
    10) Something to prove: People might hate this reason, but to that, I'll say - these players are HUMAN. Gurley was just recently considered the best RB in the NFL. Over the course of a single season where he was horrendously underutilized, he became "washed," "damaged goods," whatever you want to call it. He was cut. That stings. And now, here he is, headed back to the home of his alma mater, where the most raving of Gurley fans reside, and you want me to believe he isn't going to be working his butt off to show everyone he's still got it. Ha. If it doesn't pan out, the reason won't be Gurley not having something to prove. He's going to be putting his all into this offseason and season itself, guaranteed. It's his last chance at a big contract, and more than that (knowing his competitiveness), it's his last chance to ensure he has a chance to cement his NFL legacy.
    Anyway, that's 10 reasons. Feel free to add your own. I just can't find any big downsides to this. I'm pumped.
