  1. No, first we need to fire Arthur Blank...
  2. A team that was considered to be a Super Bowl contender, is now 1-5... But hasn't fired the coach!!! Amazing!! Only in Atlanta...
  3. A lot of careless attitudes coming from this team, including ownership. HUGE red flag going forward...
  4. That may be true... but its a well known fact Pioli knows a Pro Bowl-caliber player when he sees one. The guy has drafted Pro Bowl talent with every team he's been with. He is one of the best talent evaluators in football. If you don't believe me, just ask most people with common sense... They'll tell you the same thing...
  5. So were just gonna sit here & pretend like things didn't improve under Pioli?? What do you have against the guy? That was the main reason TD hired him. Because TD's talent evaluating skills were below average... and he was looking for someone to help bail him out...
  6. Before Pioli, 90% of TD's draft picks were busts dude. (Sam Baker, Curtis Lofton, Peria Jerry, Chris Owens, Lawrence Sidbury, Sean Weatherspoon, Corey Peters, Akeem Dent, Peter Konz, Lamar Holmes, etc...) Not mentioning free agent signings like Dunta Robinson & Ray Edwards... When Pioli came, a lot of things turned around... (Jake Matthews, Devonta Freeman, Ricardo Allen, Grady Jarrett, Alex Mack, Mo Sanu, Deion Jones, Tevin Coleman, Neal, Hooper, Campbell, Kazee, Calvin Ridley, Ito Smith)... None of those names would be here without Scott Pioli helping TD in the scouting dept...
  7. Talent wise, the o-line isn't bad... The o-line just doesn't have the same toughness it had with Kyle Shanahan. I think its more of a technique issue than a personnel issue. Someone please tell me why Chris Morgan is still the o-line coach?? And about the defensive line... the d-line lacks true talent & size. We don't have any consistent play-makers, & our d-line isn't strong enough to compete with big, mean o-lines. We get dominated at the line of scrimmage too often...
  8. Thomas Dimitroff is an overrated talent evaluator. He should only get credit for Matt Ryan & Julio Jones. Scott Pioli deserves credit for most of this roster from the last 4 years...
  9. Besides the bust Vic Beasley, and injury prone Keanu Neal & Takk McKinley... What other 1st rd. picks do we have on defense? Everyone else are mid-round picks Scott Pioli nailed...
  10. This reminds me of the Mike Smith era... When we went years of blaming everything on players & coordinators, but not the head coach & GM...
  11. OMG! Our Super Bowl odds have just increased!!
  12. Can someone tell me why we fired Steve Sarkisian?? Wasn't our offense in the top 15 last year?
  13. Every since that Kyle Shanahan guy left, this team has been VERY mediocre.... I'm starting to think Shanny was really the head coach back in 2016-17...
  14. The Vikings are losing 21-0 to the Packers in the 2nd quarter... We made them look like the defending champs last week...
