  1. This man is serious as a heart attack about DEFENSE! He is precise and articulate about what he expects out of his players, his coaches, and himself. I sincerely hope that Quinn and Dimitroff and Pioli are on same line of thought in player selection in the draft and in ddfree agency especially. With that being said, in the draft they should get ( although it may a longshot sese)Leonard Williams or Donte Fowler or Vic Beasley. In free agency, two names on defense are on my wish list, Ndamokung Suh and Jean Pierre-Paul, Wishful thinking on my part. GO FALCONS and welcome to Atlanta Dan Quinn.
  2. I offer my sincerest condolences to you. Keep your faith, maintain your focus, and firmly maintain your determination to be a great offensive tackle in the NFL Stay hungry my friend!
  3. Let's not forget about Terren Jones. Where does he fit? Or is he just good enough to make the PS?
  4. What about Baylor guard Cyril Richardson? I didn't see his name on the draftboards. Does anyone know?
  5. You know, Imho, in certain situations I'd like to see both of them start at both LCB and RCB. Trufant is more of a technician at cornerback, while Alford is a bit more athletic. Both of them bring a great deal to the table and will greatly help this year's defense.Enough said.
  6. Deacon Jones was the prototype DE. Always a relentless pass rusher with a nonstop motor. He was an everydown DE who never took plays off. He will be greatly missed. Enough said.
  7. I believe the TO was in reference to the turnovers that Osi would create against opposing offenses. Enough said.
  8. Alford has a great work ethic and a willingness to do whatever it takes to help the Falcons win. He has a positive mindset which is the most important component that a professional athlete must maintain if he is to be successful. An athlete can have all the physical and athletic ability in the world, but without a good work ethic and a cooperative spirit, such an athlete will not succeed and the team that he plays for will not keep him. Enough said.
  9. The both of them have the speed and the athleticism to be dominant, premier cornerbacks in the NFL. If they use their abilities and skills to their full potential and are coached properly, then the Falcons will certainly along with Falcons fans will be getting their money's worth for years to come. Enough said.
  10. 88, thanks for clearing that up for me. I didn't realize that Alford was projected to go that early. I hope you are right about Massaquoi and Matthews. They will have to step it up come this season. Enough said,.
  11. The Falcons need pressure up front from DE's & DT's. That will go a long way in helping the secondary to create turnovers. I like that we have Trufant and Alford, but wqe need an impact DE along with Umenyiora and pressure from the LB's and some good pass coverage from the LB's to make this D solid. Enough said.
  12. I'm trying to figure this out. Somebody help me to understand this, Please. Now, I like this Robert Alford,but, couldn't we have gotten him in the later rounds? Four (4) DE's were sitting out there; Lemonier, Montgomery, Okafor, Washington and the Falcons couldn't grab one of these guys? With all of this talk about getting a pass rush, why didn't the Falcons address this as an immediate need? These aforementioned DE's will not be around in the later rounds. WHY? WHY? WHY? The Falcons have Umenyiora, Massaquoi,& Matthews I know, but, wasn't an impact player at DE needed? Well, we definitely have addressed the CB situation. I hope the Falcons do better in these later rounds. Enough said.
  13. .Welcome Desmond Trufant. Make your family proud by playing like a champion for the Falcons. Welcome to the ATL. Enough said.
  14. He will probably wear #23 keeping that number in the family like his older brother Marcus. Enough said.
