  1. First, he has the measurements of a quick pass rusher, but his biggest strength is being stout/penetrating in the run game. Then, it depends on what we have in Senat, because if Senat is actually good, we already have that big body, so our back-up 1-Tech/NT doesn't have to be our 1st round/#14 pick in the draft. At that point, we can try to add another potential Grady (smaller frame, but very powerful, stout, and quick) to the DL for situations where we're going for penetration more than space-eating. In the end, if Oliver works out similar to Grady, we'll have a great rotation and a lot of versatility. That said; I'm definitely not opposed to looking at Wilkins/Lawrence/Simmons, I just think Oliver's height/weight doesn't matter that much, what matters is that he's good and makes plays when he's in the game.
  2. It's not real, it's a parody account.
  3. I feel for you, KOG, I didn't like Koetter much when he was here. I can't speak on how we'll play and if it will entertain you or not, but I think something underrated about these hires on offense is that all of our coaches are in their core competencies and/or at their proper level within the organization. Mularkey seems to be an outstanding TE coach, which is why he got promoted in the first place, but I think OC and HC are a stretch. Same thing with Knapp, he should just be a QB coach, that's what he's best at. Koetter, same thing, although I do think he's an NFL-level OC and he's just out of his depth at HC. Raheem Morris has been an HC, and perhaps he'd be better suited to DB coach, but he's a positional coach on the offense, and that's about where he should be. We now have a solid, deep staff with tons of NFL experience. Nothing shiny, no sweet young hire, but four guys that have been around and have seen success in what they're currently being asked to do. Our offense might not be the best offense of all time, but I do think we will be good, and if you can't enjoy Koetter's style, let's hope you find joy in watching what I hope is a good to great defensive unit next year. EDIT - Also, what the person above me said. Due to the offensive staff, I don't think Quinn even really has to pay attention to the offense, so he can focus on making the defense the best unit possible. I see our defense improving a lot next year, and if not, Quinn will be gone along with his new hires, so you should come out satisfied in one way or another.
  4. Good Lord, Dan Quinn will have to pay literally zero attention to the offense. At least, that seems to be the goal.
  5. Jeez, we're getting the whole band back together, eh? What's next, Mike Smith for defensive assistant, too?
  6. Welp, not exciting, but not devastating. Very Falcons choice, but I think we'll have a good offense next year, somewhere between Shanahan and Sark.
  7. The player you're probably thinking of is Christian Wilkins at DT. Him and Clelin Ferrell at DE played well, I thought.
  8. My issue with Raekwon Davis is that he went for 1 sack his freshman year playing in 4 games, had 8.5 last year playing in all 13, then he plummeted to 1.5 this year even though he played all 13 games. Why? It makes me uneasy to draft somebody on a downward trend.
  9. I've been thinking this for a while; I think if everyone on the DL just went down one spot on the depth chart, to be replaced by legitimate #1s, our DL would be pretty amazing. Say we get Quinnen Williams/Ed Oliver/Christian Wilkins/Jeffery Simmons/Derrick Brown, having Grady be our 2nd best DT means we're in fantastic shape there. If we get another passrusher opposite Takk, and have Beasley be a situational edge rusher, those two players are a pretty solid #2 and #3 at DE. If we hit on our first two picks or a FA, we could be in a great spot next year (assuming Beasley comes back at a much cheaper rate).
  10. Seriously. Yeah, Dimi has missed on some early 1sts, but that doesn't mean we want a later draft pick. With a high pick and a 2nd rounder that's basically a late first, I'm somewhat optimistic we can get another draft like 2016 where we get two really good players (Deion Jones, Keanu Neal) and two pretty good players (Devondre Campbell, Austin Hooper). We are projected to have what, 8 or 9 picks? I don't think that's too tall a task, and getting a higher draft pick increases the likelihood we hit on the picks, or still have our guy on the board. Yeah, there's the possibility we blow the 5th pick, but that doesn't mean you want the 15th. That said, I don't want players playing to lose, I want the staff to be trying out young guys and backups in places where the status quo isn't working, like the OL, DL, and DBs. I think we can use the rest of the season to see who belongs on the team and who doesn't, while trying our best but losing the games. Have a good draft, switch up the staff if needed, come back strong next year with some actual depth, hopefully. If we suck again next year, heads roll. Seems reasonable. @FFS1970 - Trying to add Calvin into your bust list is a stretch and a half.
  11. This is, by far, the worst take I've seen on this board.
  12. Nope, just someone tired of the horrible takes on this forum. Seems like responding to them is self-defeating though, since as I respond to you, you make more posts, and your posts get dumber.
  13. Once again, yes and no. Would people say Shanny is better than Sark? Sure. But in 2016 we had five guys on the OL play literally every game of the season. That's special and very rare. Then Chester retired, then Levitre started to get injured. Then the backups get injured, or they're just not as good. Freeman has been out the whole season, basically. Pat Dimarco is no longer here. We DO NOT have the same personnel, specifically the personnel to adequately pass protect and run block.
  14. If you don't feel you're getting your money's worth buying Season Tickets, don't buy them. It's sports, though. Only Belichick never has a bad season. If you call for a coaches head after every time you don't make the playoffs, your team will be trash forever. I'll just be happy you and your reactionary ilk aren't the FO, because you would actually take a good roster and run it into the ground with horrible decisions. Shanny wasn't the be-all-end-all of the 2015 and 2016 squads. The defense played great ball in 2016 with, what, 6 rookies starting? They totally overperformed. The defense looked great last year. The defense has improved linearly every year since Quinn got here, except this year, for very obvious reasons. Our team has one of the (if not THE) most talented roster in its history, because Quinn has worked well with Dimitroff. Shanny in no way built this team, except for his influence on bringing in a few guys like Mack and Gabriel, and running a great offense (in one out of his two years, mind you). People attributing everything good that happened to this team since Quinn arrived to Shanny are nuts, honestly.
  15. He created the good team in the first place. You people need to calm down, it's one bad season.
