  1. Some teams haven’t played starters in any preseason games for years. It’s the new trend. McVay hasn’t played his starters since he got the gig and they’ve made the playoffs every year including a Super Bowl
  2. Remind me again. How many super bowls did he win? Too hard? How about playoff wins?
  3. I don’t think there is very much media access. Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce, San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle and former NFL TE Greg Olsen are set to host over 40 NFL tight ends for the inaugural Tight End University summit in Nashville, Tennessee this week. The summit will run Wednesday through Friday at Lipscomb Academy in Nashville. The mission of the summit is to help unite the tight ends, one of the most diverse positions in the league, under a common goal of improving and advancing the position. It’s similar in theory to Von Miller’s Pass Rush Summit or Lane Johnson’s OL Masterminds Summit. They’re getting some of the best and the brightest players in the league together to collaborate and learn from each other. The players in attendance will have a number of activities taking place over the three-day period. Those activities will range from film study to on-field work. They’ll get a chance to exchange ideas and theories about the position group, covering responsibilities like receiving, route-running, pass-blocking, and run-blocking. They’ll even host a camp for the Boys & Girls Club, giving a number of children a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get active with a group of NFL stars. Both Hurst and Pitts accepted invites and are in attendance. Pitts was the only rookie invited.
  4. I wish you could make a comeback I loved your break downs. I’ll have to check you out on twitch can you give me a link please?
  5. Not too impressed with the video. First 3 sacks were free rushes, next 2 were clean up sacks after the QB was flushed out of the pocket last 2 were decent showed decent speed and bend
  6. Matt is a professional he’s had a friendly relationship with every OC he’s ever had but he hasn’t tied himself to a coach the way the former #11 tied himself to DQ. AS is a professional as well I caught a few titan games and saw him laughing and joking with players on the sideline never seem to prevent him from doing his job unlike past falcon coaches
  7. I’ve said it before I’ll say it again. Julio was fine until Terrell Owens and Chad Johnson got in his ear about money. I blame those two divas for this whole mess and if Karma is real Julio won’t get another big contract. Fans complain about Matt not taking a pay cut but he never attempted to hold the team hostage over his services. I have a million times more respect for Matt than I’ll ever again have for Julio. I sincerely hope he fails in Tennessee
  8. Honestly I don't think Shannon thought about it before making the call. Skip had gotten on his nerves and he wanted to shut him up and show off a lil by calling Julio direct. He probably assumed that Julio knew that he (shannnon) was on air at the time. Shannon does a lot of things for entertainment value but I've never seen him do something at the expense of a player. He's super pro player
  9. Shannon Sharpe is not a sports journalist he is a sports pundit there is a difference.
  10. You sound like the ex girlfriend who calls off the engagement then refuses to return the engagement ring lol. Never try and keep someone who doesn’t want to be kept it never ends well for either party
  11. Should’ve traded Julio 2 seasons ago when his value was the highest. Julio showed us who he was when he was hanging out with T. O. (You are the company you keep) Right before holding out and demanding a pay raise just 2 years into a new contract. We may never know why Julio soured on the team but if I was a betting man I’d put it all on the Super Bowl loss. The off season after the Loss seemed to change the whole organization top to bottom.
  12. TAFT: There are no sacred cows also TAFT: Julio should be a Falcon for life.
  13. Terry never said he wanted to trade Julio just that in this business you have to listen to the offers. For what it's worth I think a 2nd rounder is too low for JJ. I also would not expect a trade to happen before the end of TC. A need is going to develop for some team, it always does, and Julio will fetch multiple draft picks. I love JJ but at this point in his career the draft capital and cap relief are more important to the future of the franchise than JJ being a Falcon for life.
  14. Gotta factor in that our backs won’t face many stacked boxes with the receiving weapons we have
  15. I thought the panthers did a great job and Tampa got a steal with Trask. Buffalo and Cleveland also had solid drafts. Miami started strong but fizzled on day 3.
  16. Our cap situation made a rebuild a very unlikely scenario.
  17. click bait or not we should be trying to move JJ11. we need both the draft capital and the cap relief
  18. Words cannot express what this man’s music meant to me. He will be greatly missed. my favorite part of early DMX albums were his prayers and convos with God. How prophetic was this verse? an except from “The Prayer” by DMX And I fear that what I saying, won't be heard until I'm gone But it's all good, 'cause I really didn't expect to live long So if it takes for me to suffer, for my brother to see the light Give me pain till I die, but please lord treat him right
  19. Nope I think he has to prove to the GM and HC he still has gas in the tank. Maybe next year if he has a good year.
  20. More likely they are sold on Jalen Hurts. Files is just insurance because he’s a proven back up.
  21. Because you can take steps now that will provide sustained success over multiple seasons rather than attempt to put all your eggs in one basket for 1 season. I’m sure blank would rather have a decade of sustained winning vs 1 Sb win and 9 years of average to bad seasons any competent businessman would.
  22. The fact that Matt Ryan has a couple of good years left is exactly why we should draft a QB this year. It doesn’t have to be at 4 though. I think Trask or Mac Jones would be good fits for Arthur Smith’s system and I believe he could develop them into legit starters while we ride out Matt’s contract over the next 2-3 years.
  23. Dude check the tape I called a SB appearance during TC in 2015. This isn’t the same situation not even close. Also we didn’t win the SB after 2015 so I’m not sure what your point is. I acknowledge that we will win games next year. I’d be severely disappointed in anything less than 8 wins. This team has no depth...period that makes winning a Super Bowl or even getting there next to impossible. The front office’s first job should be building the teams depth nobody except delusional fans expect them to change the team into Sb contenders in a single offseason.
  24. Cap can be manipulated but not without consequence. The consistent winning teams are never in win now mode. We are not 1 or 2 pieces away from a super bowl winning squad
