  1. Any and all references to the Superbowl loss makes me sooooooooooooooo sad. I was watching them count down from 5-1 and was hoping " Please....please don't let #1 be his performance in the Superbowl."šŸ˜¢
  2. I'm really glad to hear about Oliver hooking up with Ridley because Ridley is a monster to have to cover especially if he's trying to cover Calvin 1on1.
  3. I don't get bogged down into researching into a huge list of players. I typically just start watching someone closely whenever we draft them. I had no idea who Calvin Ridley was when we drafted him. After watching college tape on him, I knew there would be instances in the NFL as a rookie that he would be absolutely wide open. He was. He came into the league with elite level route running skills, now year three of him honing his craft....AND with a dude in Julio that HAS to be respected whenever he's on the field.....Good luck.
  4. I like them all except for that big *** ATL above the numbers.
  5. Unless Arians changes his offense to fit Brady, I hope they sign him.
  6. The thing that bothers me is that typically the TE for running QB's are a safety valve target for them and put up numbers. Crumpler for Vick, Olsen for Newton, Kelce for Mahomes ect.
  7. I believe it is supposed to be a non conference team but I'm not sure how they select that team.
  8. NO! You don't go on a winning streak, F'n yourself out of having the chance to naturally pick Young. I would be beyond pissed off if our FO wasted picks (when we potentially didn't need to or at least as much) to draft Young. There would be no way I wouldn't be on the FIRE TD/QUINN TODAY train.
  9. Also a good indicator of stamina.
  10. The NFL needs better qb play, I think most people expect the QB's in the XFL to not be that hot or they'd be at least a back up in the NFL. Other position groups are looking decent.
  11. I hope he saved up some dough cause his time in the NFL is no mo.
  12. I love Hoop. I think he's an above-average chain mover with big ol mitts that snares in most everything. That being said, and I've said this in the last few years, us Falcons fans are typically not used to being in this situation with our FA's. For the longest time, our roster has been garbage and often players didn't even see the end of their contract and were cut. We can't pay all of our talent It's just not possible. If the going rate for above-average TE's is 10 mil, he's worth every penny but tough decisions have to be made and I really liked what I saw out of Jaeden Graham last year and is the drop off from Hooper to Graham worth 10 mil? I dunno.
  13. Another similarity between the two games. After both games, I said " FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU KYLE SHANAHAN!!!!!!!"
  14. No, just no. If we were a 1-7 team and in the Chase Young sweepstakes, end up 7-9 AND give up all of whatever amount of picks, I'm not exactly sure the level of pisstivity I'd be at.
  15. I think asking if a DE can get to 10 sacks in a year is a bit strange. I want my DE to be an all-around menace in the passing and run game. Ten sacks in a year is less than 1 per game and often times when there are high sack totals is because they went against a subpar line. As far as I know, I don't believe people put as much emphasis in say a CB making X amount of INT's(even with TRU), we typically want to see solid coverage and an ability to want to make a tackle. I believe a DE's ability to diagnose a play, set the edge, not over pursue, recognize screens, etc are more important than just getting X amount of sacks.
  16. He had an ankle injury and missed six games.
  17. He got us to the Superbowl and blew the Superbowl when we got there. Not too crazy of a concept.
  18. I look at Hooper and I see Greg Olson. He's not going to beat you for an in air 50 yard bomb downfield, but he will beat coverages, find spots in zones and continue to the move the chains. What is he worth $ wise? I don't know but he produces.
  19. I don't think so. Shanahan won't have the advantage of knowing the chiefs offense.
  20. I think Rodgers would have had a lot better game if he wasn't going up against a head coach that knew what they would be seeing from Lafleur's offense. Couple that knowledge with a stout defense and I predicted a 20 point victory. Had Green Bay played any other team in the championship game they would have fared much better.
  21. I said after our Superbowl loss that it was caused by a voodoo princess down in New Orleans and I will not be unconvinced of that. I also said that they would have 3 years of heartbreak because that voodoo was to come back on them. Well, now they should be paid up but those 3 straight years of heartbreak felt great. Still would have rather had the Superbowl victory.
