  1. The Eagles always seem to have the Falcons number, but today was sad. Mularkey continued his overly conservative play calling when there was still time to catch up and only started taking shots down field when the game was out of reach. His play calls are hindering the entire offense. He is uncreative, overly conservative, and teams are figuring this out. They don't respect the deep threat at all and cram into the intermediate and short gain areas so no one is getting open. It's what happened last week against the Browns and it's what happened today. The Falcons need to fire him and replace hi
  2. His play calling is completely uncreative and overly conservative. His bread and butter is controlling the clock and even in this situation he continues to try to control the clock and keep the pass plays as short as possible... And who calls a bootleg PA when down this much? You're not going to fool anyone. They need a better OC desperately.
  3. Fire Mularkey. Fire Mularkey. Fire Mularkey. Just let Ryan go no huddle for the rest of the season.
  4. Can they fire Mularkey now? His overly conservative tendencies are holding the offense back... I mean, he's still trying to control the clock even though they're down by 18.
  5. What?! They shut down the Jets #1 rush attack! How did they not earn it?
  6. The all black alternates are the best and I would love to see them be the new home uniforms. I've just never really liked the red ones very much. Making the throwback the new permanent alternate would be better.
  7. You're going to have far more opportunities within 55 yards so naturally you would want the more accurate kicker. That being said, the big leg in question is still very young and is still a raw prospect who just needs polishing by decent coaching.
  8. 56 would have been retired in name until Brooking retired so they could actually retire it if he didn't leave a sour taste in the teams mouth after last year. After that I'm sure the team felt they didn't really owe him anything. It has been retired, though.
  9. Both are good and will become two of the top QBs in the league soon enough, but to be fair to Ryan, Flacco has had a great defense to help him out to keep his team in games and to limit the impact of mistakes while Ryan has had more pressure on him to win games due to a mediocre defense to complement him. In any case, outside of the two games with the Saints I look forward to the game against the Ravens the most next year.
  10. Or, hopefully, he's realized continuing to underperform will cost him his job and he has to step up his game.
  11. But... There is no #13 on the Falcons! But the UDFA kicker we got is #5 and, if the scouting report on him is right, then he can really kick some bombs and accurately as well which is a welcome change from last year.
  12. I don't think Turner will have that drop off. The drop off is usually due to a running back having about a thousand carries, not counting receptions, taking big hits constantly, and getting worn out that way. Remember, Turner was only a sparingly used back up until 2008 so he hasn't had a careers worth of carries yet.
  13. a) What is the point of making a mock draft this early? With a few exceptions it is almost impossible to really know the top needs for a team until the season is under way. b ) I seriously doubt we'd take an OT in the 1st round. We already have Baker and I get the feeling that the coaching staff and FO view Reynolds as the team's long term answer at RT. And with Mark Ingram available that close to our perceived pick I can see us trading up to get him. Smith loves smash mouth football and having a Turner-Ingram combo would be too tempting to pass on. c) That being said, I think it's safe to say
  14. Typically when coaches go to other teams they like bringing in players they have coached before and Henderson has been available for a while yet Smith hasn't bothered getting him. Remember, when Brian Williams was released last year the Falcons got him immediately. This tells me that Smith either doesn't think he fits the system he wants or there is something about his personality that Smith never liked and doesn't want to deal with again.
  15. Bradford just needs to transition into the pro style offense, find a way to make sure he doesn't get injured like he did last year again, and have someone better than Laurent Robinson as his top target. People like to point out that he was on a loaded team and that's the only reason he was good, but to put up the numbers he did even with that talent is still awe inspiring. 88 TDs to 16 interceptions with a completion percentage hovering around 70% over three seasons? You simply don't get that very often, especially in extremely competitive conferences every day. That being said, he has a bette
  16. He was very productive on a bad team in a top conference, was a leader for that team, and has the work ethic and a personal drive to excel at the top level and takes nothing for granted. All those factors tell me he's going to have an exceptional rookie season.
  17. If there is one thing I have learned after being a lifelong fan of Atlanta teams, it's the following: They are choke artists.
  18. Though the Texans are loaded with talent they are constantly overlooked by the Colts, for obvious reasons, and the Titans, since the media loves nothing more than the Vince Young story and overrating him beyond belief. Their defense has been improved somewhat and if their running backs can remember how to hold onto a ball then they'll have a great season. Though a bigger sleepers would be the Chiefs and Raiders. They won't get a Wild Card spot in all likelihood but they can make a run to winning a weak division. The McDaniels led Broncos are comical and I don't see them being much of a threat
  19. All the Hawks really need is a 'big name' player to become dominant and the Falcons just need to stay healthy next season to have a shot. The Braves meanwhile is a franchise that loves nothing more than frustrating its fan base.
  20. He might start over Dahl next season. Achilles tendon injuries tend to haunt you for quite a while.
  21. This entire argument can be derailed with this simple response: The Atlanta Falcons have been in rebuilding mode since 2007. It should be over after this off-season, but the fact that the team has been a threat during this time is telling where it is heading.
