  1. If you've been following this team for 46 years, why do you talk like a 13 year old?
  2. Yeah, that was the lasting impression most are going to take away from this game. Matt came up small when we needed him to come up big. Over the course of the game he just seemed off. He wasn't comfortable in part because of the pressure, but also in part because of something that seemed to exist between his ears. I am not going to make some grand conclusion on Matt Ryan's place in history off of this one game, but the offense as a whole needs to step it up going forward and he is the leader of the offense.
  3. OP started this same thread on Thursday during the game. Seems like he just needs some attention. Funny thing is, he never posts when the team actually does well. Go figure.
  4. Well, I don't know what I expected opening this thread, but somehow I am still disappointed...
  5. Kidding right?
  6. The rule is dumb. Crowell clearly lowered his head in the 1st quarter and missed the initial contact, but got the second guy in. No call. Skrine does the same thing on kick off and gets called. The refs are calling how a play feels, not the actual rule. It’s pants on head stupid.
  7. Why do people act like this is some either or thing? TD budgets extensions into his contracts so we don't become the Saints and have to cut starters every other year to stay under the cap. Julio tried to upset the apple cart and they found a happy medium. It is what it is.
  8. Hopefully we will never break the old record for longest drought of back to back winning seasons...
  9. Yeah, honestly my bad on the tone, it wasn't called for. Not sure where you getting half of your claims of things I said though. Still, most here are saying "we don't know" whereas you seem to be taking issue with a player because of a couple IG posts without any knowledge of anything. He had a midsection in the pic from last season too. Ever take a bad pic? He doesn't look like some drastic change, but you do you. I can't change your opinion, which you seem to hold onto and be absolutely certain is getting worked up over.
  10. But he looks basically the same as he did last season... You and others are making up some narrative in your own minds about him sitting around taking bong rips and eating cheetos and packing on the weight. Then you're getting mad at your own narrative? Would it suck if he showed up to camp out of shape? Sure. But you have no facts to base your theory on so you're essentially Nancy Grace railing against hypothetical situations. He likes eating fried chicken, the horror. A dude his side is probably eating nearly 4K in calories to maintain. Go play outside or something.
  11. Might as well call this thread Sack Lives Matter... As for the actual point of thread, the team seems to have improved this offseason. Even if there is some regression in the defense, the offense and special teams improved, so that can be made up. Personally, I don't think the D regresses. The Takk and Beasley edge duo with Grady/Crawford/McClain/Senat rotation inside should at the very least maintain the DL production of last year, with a chance to improve if Takk keeps progressing and finishes more of those pressures. The only problem I have is with the LB corps. If Riley stays healthy, did he improve enough for that to matter? He wasn't lighting it up before his injury, and he wasn't stellar in his return (though who knows if that is being only 4 weeks post-op on a meniscus surgery). You would hope he would be coached up, but the last thing this D needs is him to falter out of the gate and get Beasley rotating back into the LB corps more than planned. I do think we will see more coverage sacks this year than in years past. I am pretty interested in seeing Alford more in the nickle if that is the plan. He seems great at reading QB's eyes, and letting him roam a bit more could be dangerous.
  12. I wish I didn't do the math first, then read the thread to make sure I wasn't posting something already posted... This post is all that needs to be said. His last contract didn't hamstring us, and his current one won't either. The problem we have with the cap now is that we have too much roster talent to keep it all. Matt taking a couple million dollar a year discount isn't likely to change that. The problem was caused by good drafting and good coaching these past few years. You know what also fixes that problem? The same **** thing. We'll be fine, and the best QB in Falcons history will be here til he retires...
  13. But great route running is. Precision over raw athleticism every time.
  14. Yes, and one that did criminal defense in Santa Clara County for a hot minute. I try not to argue when not being paid to do so... so thanks! Also, I find the lawyers who speak in certainties about cases they aren't handling are usually the most incompetent. I generally try not to do it unless I have a drink in my hand.
  15. I’d be more surprised if there weren’t at least 90 days. Like I said, this county is unique. I could very well be wrong, but Santa Clara volunteered for a pilot program to ramp up criminal penalties in California when all other participating counties were chosen by the legislature. Nothing is ever concrete in court, but I’m not expecting leniency here, even for a 1st timer.
