    Well Sunday was the first time this year the holder has been Matt Schaub.

    That's why I said it should be something to watch for going forward with Bosher being gone.

    I'm trying to say both Kyler Murray and Ryan had good games but one team won and the other didnt 

    Then say that instead of "what were Ryans stats??" :lol::lol:

    Though to be fair, his stats were posted several times after the game because of how stupid it was to lose for the first time in NFL history with that kind of QB performance!

    I mean if you want to blame not keeping up with them on the offense, it obviously couldn’t be on the QB.

    At the same time, it was good to see the defense show up and let the team complete the come back.

    Of course, we immediately give it back and yet again immediately come back to tie, but miss XP.

    Only the Falcons can falcon up new ways to lose so well! 

    I only watched highlights but I want to see a close up of that hold on the missed XP. I've seen on twitter that it wasn't on Bryant. Immediately I thought about all the bad holds that were shown during pre season. I'm not advocating that they were the reason that Gio **** the bed but I think it's something that should be looked into, especially if the holder isn't the regular holder. Bryant missed a field goal last week as well with a different holder than Bosher. I could be wrong though but it's something to think about going forward with Bosher gone

    A Superbowl appearance without a Lombardi is like being the tallest midget -No moral victories. We made an appearance and should have won without giving away multiple picks- 

    I was actually being sarcastic. I figured "but hey" would have made that known

    True, but you know Stan Kroenke gonna have to fill up that multi-billion dollar new stadium and entertainment/business complex around it starting next year.


    The Rams have to pull off a SB title before the bill comes due. Which could be as soon as 2 years. They don't look so good now already lol.

    they aren't going to win anything without a consistent run game. Goff is decent but they have nothing but track stars on the team. That recipe isn't always built for success.

    I can't remember. I think Chris Mortensen might have reported that. 

    Exactly. There is no quote. No one can prove if Mortenson even had a conversation with him or not. When has Blank ever been the type to say that to someone outside of the organization behind closed doors. Not saying it won’t happen because i said it’s very possible going in at 1-7 but I won’t buy anything from someone outside the organization. Mortenson stated what most of us have stated

    All I know is, I bought Madden jsut to re-build the falcons (it's how I cope with seasons like 2019). I dumped VB44, Sanu, let Hooper walk, traded Campbell and then once the season was over unloaded Rico (moved Kazee back to starting FS) and Devonta Freeman... Started off with a clean slate drafting Chase Young, Trevon Diggs, Najee Harris and brought in Kyle Van Noy, Mark Barron and switched to a 3-4 making Takk bulk up getting Arik Armstead in FA, then in year 2 of the "re-tooling" I'll get a true NT to move Grady to the Aaron Donald 3-4 RE role. So got a LB core of Van Noy - Deion - Moses - Chase Young (rush LB), Takk, Grady, Armstead.

    I know it's Madden and ridiculous, but the point is, unload the dudes that are gone next year anyway.

    I agree it starts with the head coach, the guy who doesn't sign replaceable players to big contracts, and focuses on defense instead of paying big money for skill positions. He does have the distinct advantage of having an offense that doesn't require high dollar help at every skill position so there's that too. If that's your argument, that our offense can't get by without them, I have no rebuttal because it's likely true.

    Like I said, the Patriots staff is like no other. Bringing them up in a conversation is moot and pointless because there’s not a single staff on their level. Not 1. They spend money where they need to spend it. They pay who needs to be paid. The rest is players taking less to play for a ring and great coaching. I don’t even care that they play in a bad conference. No one will be able to duplicate what they’ve done any time soon

    I don't think he would be difficult to maintain. 

    I think there is going to be significant roster churn.  Nothing crazy but I think we agree the dline and pass rush needs help.

    Do they try to keep Davidson & Allen?  There's Beasley's replacement which is hopefully a very high draft pick.  All 3 could be gone and need to be replaced in draft and FA.

    I could see a scenario where a new front office has to make a choice between the dline and Hooper or some other position group.... like corner if they did decide to get rid of Trufant.

    Not saying it's a good idea.  Just saying I could see it happen.

    You keep the guys that are doing their jobs. Granted IF there is a new regime come next season, that regime isn’t obligated to keep a single player that can free up cap space so we gotta keep that in mind. I would hope that they at least do a thorough evaluation of every single current player on the roster before hand though

    I don't think he's difficult to maintain, I just don't think he's worth top dollar, especially when we have such big holes on defense. Hooper is replaceable in the draft like Freeman was, but instead he's going to cash in on his contract year and we get to complain about how bad our defense is yet again. This is why teams like the Pats are contenders every year and we aren't. They don't sign replaceable players to big money.

    Who cares what New England does. There’s a reason for their success and it starts with the head coach. There is no other coaching staff like theirs in the league and no one can duplicate it. No sense in people always bringing up what New England does.

    The theory was you can be aggressive with your resources when your QB is on a rookie contract. To varying degrees teams did that with Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck, Dak Prescott, Carson Wentz, and a few others and had a lot of success. 

    Goff isn't on his rookie contract anymore. In normal circumstances, you would want more low cost draft picks to fill out your depth behind such an expensive lead player. 

    Everyone knows that. But hey, they got a super bowl appearance out of it

    It’s easy to sign hooper. The TE don’t get paid much and I don’t think Falcons need him to make the highest paid TE. I would go for 5/38 with 20 guaranteed. That’s like 7 mil for 3 years and get out after 3rd year if needed.

    Honestly, at 24(soon to be 25), he stays the entire deal IMO unless Ryan retires and whoever the OC comes in and he's not a scheme fit.

    Question,  what do you think it's going to take to re-sign Hooper?

    He's a FA next season so his trade value isn't going to be that great but the Falcons are already over the cap and I get the impression Hooper isn't going to be cheap.

    Talked about this yesterday.

    Zach Ertz just got a 5 year, $42.5 million deal. That's around the benchmark for a top tier tight end *considering* Travis Kelce signed a 5 year $46 million contract just a couple years before. Retaining Hooper shouldn't hurt at all unless they decide to make him the highest paid TE. Even then it won't be a killer with the cap rising 10% yearly and a few contracts should be off the books starting next season. There's no reason to let a proven young TE go. Period

    You guys are outsmarting yourselves. The Jags have been “a QB away” for a while now. They’ve got the ammo to easily move up if they think they have finally found their franchise QB. I highly doubt they are perfectly fine with rolling the dice on Rico.

    We have seen much crazier things happen in the past.


    yeah and now they're a couple of playmakers away. Minschew is better now than Bortles ever was
