  1. Unintentional Grounding liked a post in a topic by cam-marino in 2020 Prospect Review: DE Curtis Weaver   
    HUGE fan of Boise State DE Curtis Weaver (6-3 264). Plays the “STUD” position at BSU. Position essentially calls for an athlete who can rush the passer at the strong side or drop into coverage. Reminds me of what Quinn looks for in a LEO:
    “always lines up on the LOS and blitzes, generally a player that is smaller than a DE but bigger than an OLB (240-250 lbs), pass rush ability, can control his gap and take on other responsibilities (such as coverage) from time-to-time, ‘quinn and carroll have tended towards using lighter, more athletic players at the position in recent years, like bruce irvin’ (6-3, 250. 4.5 40) or vic beasley (6-3, 246. 4.53 40)”
    Ideal Falcons LEO fit who can play with his hand in the dirt. 28 TFL and 20.5 sacks in two seasons. Phenomenal hand usage. Also high in character. 
    If Cominsky plays out the 5 technique, which I imagine he will, the Falcons may want to see Weaver at the LEO (7T/9T). However, his best fit is probably at SDE (5T) because of his ability to do both: pass rush and stop the run. Think Steven Means, who was supposed to start at SDE.

    Unfortunately they threw this responsibility at me. I 'm only one man and for all y'all that know me, between the two homes, the lake house, captaining the boat, the charity work, entertaining at said residence, I just don't have enough minutes in the day.
    ...my bad

    Recently I suggested a few people to come and join the Falcons forums, but I continue to get messages from them saying that they have not been approved. I also recently saw someone write an article for USA today and they try to join the Falcons forums just to say that they wrote the peace and yet cannot even join.
     
    Not sure who are the mods on this site are but could anybody give me some help with this?

    Lindstrom hasn't won a start yet.
     
    OTA's are necessary but not for the contact but to get players in the routine or acclimated to practice life. There's usually a lot of inside work the fans don't get to see.

    Looks like one of the dudes that was talking to me about having trouble getting in just got approved.
     
    Haven't heard from any of the other people. Not getting any texts back at the moment.

    Honestly I would like to keep this about the general post that I made.

    I was taking a shot at the inactive mods in jest.

    That wasn't a shot at the people trying to get in.  It was a shot at the people already here.  99% in jest.

    And well this is one of the reasons why analysts like myself are looking at the Falcons defense and going:
    " What is missing from the 4-3 that the Falcons would need to use it properly and what could they do if that 4-3 doesn't work?"
    Which led to this question:
    "From 2015 until 2019 ( Yet to be played ) the Falcons defense has been a combination of the 43 and 34... But if we look at the evidence on the table is it so hard to believe that Dan Quinn potentially could be using base 34 looks and his 60% nickel looks this coming year?"
     
    There's an obvious need if we want to run more 43 under for defensive ends. There's no debate or questions about that. And the Falcons obviously aren't willing to shovel out money to acquire those types of defensive ends as we can tell from past free agencies and drafts. And while the 43 under is a very unique defense with unique needs there still is the question of: 
     
    " DQ and TD had all the chances in the world to build on top of this 4-3 with excellent draft picks over the past few years at DE... Why didn't they follow through with that plan?"
     
    And thus is the reason why a lot of upstart analysts and guys like myself are questioning whether or not we will see more 3 - 3 - 5 and 3-4 looks to counter the passing teams we see in the NFCS.

    It's funny ,but that's what Dan Quinn's been trying to use for the last couple of years.
    Guys like Jaylen Collins ( Getting cut after the off the field issues) and Robert Alford ( Not the DQ mold CB) unfortunately stunted that back two years. 
    Looking at history you could potentially say that if Dan Quinn had had his prototypical corners starting on the outside that the cover 3/1 with some 3 safety looks could have been implemented sooner.
    You can even go back to 2016 and say that Dan Quinn had most of everything he wanted to run his defense, but a few key injuries set him back.
    but with the guys we have right now with the inexperience on the table I would say cover one it's probably not a great option currently. But cover 3 is going to be optimistic.

    Currently it's probably Sheffield based on tape alone, but here is a Breakdown of the players we have in list form.
     
    Currently we have:
    Rashard Causey 6'0" - R
    Kendall Sheffield 5'10" - R
    Jordan Miller 6'2" - R
    Jayson Stanley 6'2" - R
     
    Taveze Calhoun 6'1" - One Year
    Ryan Neal 6'3" - One Year
     
    Blidi Wreh-Wilson 6'1" - Seven years
    JJ Wilcox 6'0" - Seven Years
     
    Isaiah Oliver 6'0" - Starter
    Desmond Trufant 6'0" - Starter 
     
    This of course is not listing Damontae Kazee as the slot corner because we are primarily talking about outside guys.
    My guess will be that Wilson will make the team as the third outside corner.
    Miller and Sheffield will make the team as developmental rookies.
    That would mean we would have 6 CB listed ( counting Kazee) 
    So theoretically we would have three more DB spots open unless we carried the bare minimum for linebackers.
