  1. Let’s not pretend that Sark was some sort of master play caller. No he wasn’t bad. But he wasn’t great either. I don’t think anyone will rue the day we let Sark go.
  2. This article is a joke. Let's break this down - shall we? "South Division rivals: Carolina lost guard Andrew Norwell (Jacksonville) but added Poe, who helped the Falcons significantly improve their run defense in 2017" So let me get this straight.......they lost Norwell to an offensive line that already struggled and they added Poe and lost Lotulelei - so how much did they improve? "New Orleans signed cornerback Patrick Robinson, convinced Drew Brees to stay in town (he had more lucrative offers elsewhere) and free-agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is scheduled for a visit" Classic overreation. Suh didn't sign - Brees is STAYING in NO (Ryan will also be STAYING in ATL), and they signed a 30 year DB with 14 career picks in 10 years. Better? "Tampa Bay added defensive tackle Beau Allen from Philadelphia." .....yeah...those 20 tackles and 1 sack will make up the difference for the Bucs.... "Philadelphia: The team that ended the Falcons’ season and won the Super Bowl acquired defensive end Michael Bennett from Seattle and signed Haloti Ngata to make up for Allen’s loss." OH - and they also cut Vinny Curry and are currently OVER the cap and have to cut/trade players to be compliant. OH - and also both Ngata and Bennett are older and in their twilight of their career's. They may also have to park with Kendrick as a result...better? "Minnesota: The Vikings filled their biggest need by signing quarterback Kirk Cousins after taking a run at Brees. They’re also talking to free-agent interior lineman Sheldon Richardson. They should be contenders again." Yep - they did get substantially better. But that's what happens when you don't have a QB signed on the roster after all 3 became free agents. "Los Angeles: The Rams had the league’s new hip offense under coach Sean McVay last season and they’ve strengthened their defense, trading for cornerbacks Marcus Peters (19 interceptions in three years with Kansas City) and Aqib Talib (five-time Pro Bowler). Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is giddy." This one has me scratching my head. Yes they traded for Peters and Talib - but they also got rid of Quinn and Ogletree - oh and boy wonder LaFleur left to go to the Titans. I know McVay called plays but LaFleur has been doing something right with game planning..... "San Francisco: The 49ers had a ton of cap space and may have overpaid for players, but they’ve made the team significantly better. Former Minnesota running back Jerick McKinnon (four years, $30 million), an Atlanta native and former Georgia Southern quarterback/tailback, will flourish in Kyle Shanahan’s offense. Ex-New York Giants center Weston Richburg (five years, $47.5 million) will stabilize the offensive line. Richard Sherman (three years, $27.5 million, but only $7 million guaranteed) provides some leadership, although it’s uncertain how he’ll rebound from a ruptured Achilles that ended his 2017 season." Uh dude......if you think these moves will move the 49ers past the Falcons - I want some of what you are smoking. Jerick McKinnon? I mean the guy's decent - but come on. Sherman? 2 achilles procedures within a few months of each other? Yep - that will give them another 7-8 wins alright. "Green Bay: The Packers surprisingly let wide receiver Jordy Nelson go, but signed tight end Jimmy Graham and defensive tackle Muhammad Wilkerson." This one is hilarious. They subbed one 10mm contract with Nelson with another in Graham and I will tell you I'm much more concerned when Nelson is on the field. This is a really stupid tradeoff in my opinion - they would've been scarier keeping Nelson and drafting a TE in my view. I like the Wilkerson signing however. Still don't think these move vault them past us - they will be tough with these moves or without. The only team in my view who may have valuted past the Falcons are the Vikings - who beat us last year anyway. This article is complete garbage and it's an example of a old tired sports beat writer with no new stories to write about. It's clear to see through this garbage. Just my 2 cents!
