  1. Does AS run a lot of hurry up or no huddle in his play calling? I really think Matt thrives in those situations. It would be great to see us wearing down defenses like that again. I didn’t watch many Titans games besides the highlights so just curious.
  2. Harry should stop shopping at Gap kids.
  3. "Julio Jones will always be part of the Falcons story, having set numerous records and creating many great memories for all our fans, including me, since the day we drafted him," Falcons owner Arthur Blank said in a statement. "He has been a fixture on our team for almost half the time I have owned the Falcons. As we both move in another direction, I'm deeply grateful for what Julio has done for our team and what he has meant to our city and, in my mind, he will always be part of the Falcons family. I wish him nothing but the best in Tennessee and throughout his life." I feel like Arthur was probably a little irked at Julio’s stance after the last negotiation. Probably even more so after the interview. I know sometimes it feels like he meddles a little too much w football operations but I still appreciate his maturity and steadfast resolve to winning one for Atlanta. This was a gentleman’s response in a situation where one could easily have handled it differently. I wish Julio the best, besides winning one if it against us, but I really hope we can win one for Arthur because he’s one of the best owners in the league.
  4. Curious. Is that a function of the scheme or do you think tannehill chose the check down or short throws more often than not? I find it hard to believe that AS simply doesn’t have routes built into his play calling that spreads the field.
  5. Looks interesting. His interview was more entertaining. Let’s see what the coaches can do with him.
  6. Stupid topics I can deal with but the off season shouldn’t excuse blatant stupidity.
  7. Trade Jarrett?? Are you serious? WTH is going on with this place.
  8. This is what all those whining about his contract forget.
  9. So. Many. Sacks. So. Many. Fumbles. ✌️👀✌️👀
  10. I thought Roddy was a terrible pick and for the first couple of years I felt vindicated because he didn’t perform. I’m happy to say that Roddy is to this day one of my all time favorite Falcons. I was totally wrong about him and his physical abilities, albeit ring of honor worthy, pales in comparison with his overall personality and persona as a true Falcon, aints hate and all.
  11. We’ve all seen what Ryan can do in a good scheme and just another second or two of protection. Even a remotely decently running game can give Matt exactly what he needs to show up again. If we go Sewell (which I’m all for), I can see Matt playing a while longer in the red and black.
  12. 😂 now there’s a name I haven’t heard in a while.
  13. Really wanted to watch this but didn’t have time. Now it’s gone
  14. Agree completely. A lot of times sacks are caused by someone other than the one who actually got the sack as their stat. Like Grady creating so much pressure that someone else is able to get home.
  15. Smitty? Is that you? 😂 jk
  16. Sheesh that boy looks like a problem. Would love that sort of push from our front 4.
  17. This isn’t the morality football league. Players who leave some money on the table deserve success? That’s moronic. The only time I’ve heard of someone taking less money than what the market is for them is someone who is on the back leg of their career and just looking to fulfill the desire to win once. You don’t deserve to win a super bowl because you’re willing to take less money. You deserve to win because you played better than the other team. The notion that Matt or Julio should request a pay cut to have more room for other players is asinine. Teams that have had success lately manage their cap well because they draft well.
  18. This argument carries ZERO weight. You said there’s no guarantee that it brings you a ring. Of course all players want to win a ring and be a champion, but at what cost? Literally, what cost? Tens of millions of dollars out of their own pocket? FOH. You’re talking about tens of millions of dollars out of your pocket and it’s not even a sure thing. They could end up paying someone like Steven Jackson, Ray Edwards, Peerless Price with that money that you insist the team keeps for more help. Ain’t none of those guys helping you to get a ring. This is such a dumb argument.
  19. Of course he does but exactly like you said, not at the expense of him and his own family. There’s enough money to go around and unless the QB or your other top 5 player at his skill position is still on a rookie contract this is the way of the NFL.
  20. FYI for those who say Ryan has never restructured his deal to help the team..... https://thefalconswire.usatoday.com/2020/03/25/atlanta-falcons-create-space-by-restructuring-with-matt-ryan-jake-matthews-nfl-news/ https://www.lindyssports.com/nfl/atlanta-falcons/article/headline/report-falcons-rework-ryan-jarrett-deals-for-cap-space/502495/ https://www.sportstalkatl.com/falcons-save-7m-in-cap-by-restructuring-ryans-deal/ Also, all of the complaints about the last contract we signed with him. Guess who had the largest contract up until that time. Kirk f’in cousins. So you really think Ryan, his agent or even the Falcons were crazy to pay him more than Kirk Cousins? So much stupidity in here sometimes.
