    MarkMc44 reacted to Dirtybird56 in The Falcons could make a deep playoff run in 2021.   
    NFL turnarounds can be in a snap especially if the QB spot is taken care of. If you have a good QB in the NFL then making a run always has the ability to be dependent on as little as one offseason

    To this day, when the Falcons play the Iggles, the first thing that comes to mind is William Andrews vs Wilbert Montgomery in the playoffs. That was ~40 years ago.

    We were looking at being $11mill under the cap next year with Julio. We're much better off next year cap-wise, especially post Julio. We're looking to win now. The days of shedding players and rebuilding by starting over are gone by the wayside. 
    We still have several million now to add additional free agents and sign the draft class.
    With what looks like a really soft schedule, and a tremendously higher IQ coaching staff, I think we're much better off than even most Falcon fans think we are.
    We'll be fine.

    Yep. People are expecting the 2020 Atlanta Clown Show. What they're going to get is the AS version of the 2016 Buzz Saw that dissected the vaunted Green Bay Pukers.
    It's going to be so much fun to watch the shock and bewilderment in the stands and on the field amidst all the Falcon asz-kickings to come.

    Hard to loose a Hall of Famer, but there's only one football. This strategic move was made possible by a good decision
    made in 2018. May the good decisions continue!

    Maybe true, but if that's the case I don't give a flying flip about what Julio wants. Everyone knew 2 years ago when he started working out with Terrell Owens it was going to be a problem. That was the first time he whined about his contract. Now in the first year of his extension he's whining again, and wants to be traded. 
    I might be petty, but if he's acting a fool and trying to screw us on compensation in a trade. I would waste the next 3 years of his career, since we've got to pay him any way. 
    If Julio is not traded by mandatory camp reporting date next week he will be at camp, otherwise he will not get an accrued season which means we'll still have a 3 year contract after this year plus all the fines.
    This is from the CBA that was just voted on last year and is in effect as of this year. The hold out rules have changed.
    A player shall not receive an Accrued Season for any League Year in which the player is under contract to a Club and in which (i) he failed to report to the Club's preseason training camp on that player's mandatory reporting date; or (ii) the player thereafter failed to perform his contract services for the Club for a material period of time, unless he demonstrates to the Impartial Arbitrator extreme personal hardship causing such failure to report or perform, such as severe illness or death in the family.

    MarkMc44 reacted to HASHBROWN3 in Arthur Smith on progress with players during OTAs, prepping for minicamp   
    I also liked the fact that they don’t make assumptions about how much a player may or may not know.  So the approach is to begin from the ground up with fundamentals as if nobody there understands anything.  This is smart cuz people, especially vets, would be hard pressed to ask a question if they thought to themselves that they should have already learned it.  Given the previous regime’s failure to teach, it’s probably a wise move to start from scratch.

    Been a falcon fan since 66'. Used to watch on b&w tv when cannonball butler and nobis were there. My point is that my expectations will always be high going into the season. And I will never accept the "falcons being the falcons" analogy. We've seen good and extremely bad over the years. But, we do have a good owner who has taken knocks over the years and has learned from them. I think he has organized the best fo and coaching staff that I have ever seen in "red and black". This 4-12 team last year was much better than their record would indicate. So, my expectations this year, as with any other, are high. We are presently tied in first place with a 0-0 record. Nothing fairweather nor bandwagon about me.

    I keep forgetting about this guy man.  So far he hasn't been able to make his debut.  I sure hope he can pan out for this team.  We've sorely missed on Dline draft picks not named Grady Jarrett.  If we can hit on Marlon, it would be a nice boost.

    Lmao the accolades for his defenses are so ridiculous. He's gotta be one of the best defensive coordinators of the last decade or so.
    His team got 3 shutouts in one season? That is so crazy.
    Top 10 scoring defense for 4 consecutive seasons with the Patriots. Same defense allowed less than 20 PPG for the same 4 years. Best defense they've had under Belichick.
    I think there's a very good chance he's the best DC the Falcons have ever had.
    Boys, we might finally have a legit defense.

    I think you're right. Actually, we had success with 3 tight end sets, 13 personnel, in 2016. Hit some big plays in obvious running situations. I can think of one obvious running situation that we should have gone 13......

    The falcons have given Julio every thing he has ever asked for. The guaranteed 15 million of his money and a new contract.  They let him practice if and when he felt like it , which was seldom.  He also came out of a game any time he felt like it, which was often.   I think someone in the new regime took a look at Julio's actions and told him those efforts were no longer satisfactory.  That's when the mule lip came out. Frankly , Julio became spoiled because he is an exceptional athlete, but like Aaron Rodgers and Deshaun Watson, he became , "Unhappy" when he was asked to behave the same way as most players.  He signed a contract, but in spite of that ,  he demanded a new one , and the Falcons obliged. He was obligated to come to OTAS AND TC, but he didn't have to do much of that, after all, he was Julio.  He is showing his behind now like a spoiled brat.  IMO , he KNEW he was on the air with Sterling and was just tring to spur the Falcons along.  Hey Julio, eat your dang Broccoli or you get no dessert.....BRAT !

    I don't know why everyone here is ****ting on Quinn.  He took us to a Superbowl and the very next year was the only team from the NFC to be in the playoffs and was one Julio (ball went through his hands) catch from being in the NFC Championship game.  I think he tried to do to much to find that magic he had but lets not act like we didn't have any good teams/years under Quinn.  AS hasn't done a single thing yet with the Falcons to make me think he's the right man for the job of head coach.
