  1. Thankfully, I think he's going to the AFC if he's not going to us. If Miami doesn't trade out of the pick, I think they grab him and we're left with a decision on the #3 QB or the best non-QB that isn't Chase. If he falls to us and we don't take him, how is the Cincinnati front office going to pass up on reuniting Chase and Burrow?
  2. Imagine someone says, "You can draft Ja'Marr Chase and have an All-Pro WR for two contract cycles, but I'm warning you, it comes with a tough decision." "What's the decision?" you ask. "If you draft Ja'Marr Chase.... you have to cut... *gulp*.. Christian Blake." I'd laugh at that person.
  3. This sort of posting is totally obnoxious. You've probably "wasted" the most words on this board of any poster of all time, with 52K posts, countless mocks and only the rare bit of accuracy to show for it (not that anyone's draft predictions on here are particularly accurate). You're here pounding the table for another UGA guy like that's god's gift to posting, great. I don't see Fields being that great in the NFL, but he has the arm and the athleticism, and I wanted him to start over Fromm before he transferred; I wouldn't be upset if we took him. That said, to say we're essentially set
  4. I agree with this; maybe he won't be a top 5 QB, but I think the offense will be miles better. I've been begging for a competent OC and/or an offensive head coach for Matt's whole career. I prefer the Sean Payton route, where your head coach calls the plays and, if he's good, the offense is stable for your QB their whole career. We at least got a good OC for two years, but when you have a good young OC, they get hired away, so we began to suck again. If we improve in the red zone and become average on defense, we're a wildcard. That's not undoable, and I think we can do more than that.
  5. Big Ben, Rivers, and Brees were completely beaten up and broken, all having major injuries recently or at some point in their career. Matt Ryan has never had a serious injury in his entire career. If you were genuinely trying to compare Matt Ryan vs. Brady vs. Roethlisberger you would easily see Matt Ryan is much closer to Brady in terms of health and potential longevity than Roethlisberger. This is mostly due to the fact that both Brady and Ryan don't fight their way out of sacks, they just fall over, and neither of them run. In this new era of football, unless Matt tears the rotator cuff on
  6. This is exactly the sort of draft I envision after drafting Chase. Trading Julio allows us to sign free agents to fill out the roster (which probably includes a guard in this scenario) without gutting the entire team, just some of the team. Then, we can draft BPA defensive players to help make this defense non-terrible for once. Hit on some picks and clear out some bad contracts and we don't look like that bad of a team. I want to stress that Julio is my favorite player and my favorite Falcon of all time, and his jersey is the only player's jersey in any sport that I own. He's the best Fa
  7. I'm starting to think this makes the most sense. Trade Julio for a 2nd and a 4th, or a 1st and a 3rd, or whatever his value is (amazing player, big contract/nagging injuries), draft Chase. In that scenario we have an All-Pro and a future All-Pro on rookie deals and just shed Julio's contract. Re-sign Ridley when the time comes, and if Chase gets so good by the time we need to extend him that he demands to be paid like Julio, you can trade Calvin for a 1st rounder (Calvin would be 29 or 30 at that point, probably coming off four straight pro-bowls/all-pro seasons) and sign Chase because he's th
  8. I'm not sure this is what I want exactly because I think Sewell would be a great addition, but I have been thinking about trading Julio and drafting Ja'Marr Chase if the Dolphins don't grab him. I'm not sure what Julio's value is (amazing player, large contract/nagging injuries), but let's say we can trade him for a 2nd rounder. Suppose the logic is that we pass on Sewell because we have an OL full of first rounders already and Arthur Smith's area of expertise is supposed to be OL; we could draft this: 1st: Ja'Marr Chase 2nd: DE 2nd (trade): OG/RB etc. This means that we
  9. Of course, but he came out, got a bunch of pressure in his face, and has thrown for 10/14 for 118 yards, and two of those incompletions were perfect TD passes. He'll be ready.
  10. At least we know Matt is prepared to drop dimes all season again.
  11. 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 ve
  12. 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
  13. Good Lord, Dan Quinn will have to pay literally zero attention to the offense. At least, that seems to be the goal.
  14. Jeez, we're getting the whole band back together, eh? What's next, Mike Smith for defensive assistant, too?
  15. https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/1082767454391156736 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.
  16. The player you're probably thinking of is Christian Wilkins at DT. Him and Clelin Ferrell at DE played well, I thought.
  17. 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.
  18. 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 ch
  19. 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 pi
  20. This is, by far, the worst take I've seen on this board.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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 defens
  24. He created the good team in the first place. You people need to calm down, it's one bad season.
