  1. I didn't mention them because 2 of them have played one regular season game and Neal has been injured. I have to see more from them to consider them "promising."
  2. I'm starting to feel like by the time most of these young guys develop Ryan will be on the downside of his career & Julio will be just exiting his prime.. and call me pessimistic but I'm not liking what I'm seeing from the young guys on defense outside of Jarrett & Trufant.
  3. Then demote Dimitroff to "salary-cap manager." Or get a GM that can handle both personnel AND contracts, because, ya know, that's a GM's job and why they are paid millions.
  4. sigh... I just want TD gone. Like I don't care what you think of his drafting ability (or lack thereof) or his salary cap "savvy" - I just want him gone. The dude gave Tyson ******* Jackson a 5 year 25 mil dollar contract.
  5. Can the mods ban these from being posted? They offer literally no points of discussion. Matt Ryan is literally THE most politically correct person on this planet. you will NEVER hear him speak out of turn during a press conference. what you'll hear is cliche after cliche.
  6. If your system relies on top talent you're not a very good coach. What's the point of having a coaching staff if all you have is top level talent? Coaches are there to make the mediocre guys see their full potential. Quinn isn't doing that and neither did Smith.
  7. I would rather get beat by a blitz than get beat because the quarterback had 19 seconds to complete a pass.
  8. That's the joke. Completely different regime but same story. Quinn refuses to accept our front can't get pressure, and also doesn't want to move Tru around even though our #2 corner (whoever it is that week) gets picked on.
  9. The Falcons are running a defensive scheme that doesn't fit the personnel we have. Sound familiar?
  10. Quit staring at the **** stat sheet.If you actually WATCH the games, you'll understand that Ryan is having an extremely down year. It's not hard to complete a high % of passes when most of them travel about 4 yards past the line of scrimmage. The stat sheet doesn't display how many wide open throws he misses, or how many plays he rushes the throw because he THINKS he's gonna get hit when in actuality the pocket is serviceable.
  11. The quicker people come to terms with Ryan never getting better than he is, the better.The dude is 30 years old. He's as good as he'll ever be. What you see with Ryan is what you're gonna get the rest of his career which is: A good, not great QB who will never give you more than 30 TDs, regardless of who lines up at receiver. A QB who suffers from tunnel vision, which leads to a lot of batted passes and defenders squatting on routes. A QB that lacks killer instinct which leads to us getting into the red zone at a tremendous rate but consistently settling for field goals. Arm strength is incredibly overrated, but its clear that none of Matt Ryans coordinators have the confidence for him to throw vertical sideline routes or back shoulder throws. What I'm getting at with all this is, the Julio trade really hurt us, but for reasons people will never accept. Ryan needs a pristine pocket otherwise he gets ghost feet and begins to make errant decisions. There are teams in the NFL chucking it deep as well as throwing back shoulder fades to guys they didn't give up multiple 1st round picks for.
  12. I disagree, you can put a large percentage of this loss on Matt Ryan.He is to the point where not only can he not complete 5 yard out routes, he throws to Julio in triple coverage when Roddy is left alone down the left sideline (most likely BECAUSE defenses now know Ryan has tunnel vision)
  13. No. Without going into specific detail, he is an insult to the word "linebacker" and I don't normally **** talk players by name... but the way he carries himself (like he's the hottest **** on planet Earth) then gets run over by a tight end every week gets on my last nerve.
  14. Flat out, no. The offensive line is just not good enough for Matt Ryan. He's the type of QB that really does become too anxious in the pocket with a bad OL. Some pocket QBs don't let it phase them. Teams like Seattle can get away w/ a ****** o-line because they have a very mobile QB and are atleast serviceable when run blocking. Don't even get me started on the o-line's ability (or lack thereof) to open holes in the run game. People keep saying our RBs suck - NO running back will succeed behind that **** you're seeing. This team is still too reliant on the Ryan to Jones combination, and while it is powerful, you can pretty much guarantee Julio will miss atleast 1 game. He'll be hobbling for 2-3 more. While I do think our defense will improve, at BEST I see them being middle of the road. I think a lot of QBs are gonna target our 2nd and 3rd corners. As far as record is concerned, the schedule is a favorable one, so I could see 8-8 or 9-7 best case scenario, which could be good enough to win the division given how bad our division still is (I have no idea whatsoever why any media analysts consider Saints (entire defense is in the operating room) & Panthers (practice squad targets at WR) actual threats to the Falcons... but I don't see them making it far into the postseason (possibly win a game against a hobbling team) but the o-line won't allow any further progression. That's how I see the 2015 Falcons. Feel free to tell me why I'm wrong.
  15. My only concern is the broken toe. Is that thing fully healed or is he still recovering from it?
  16. The only complaint I have with this is that it's yet another receiver on the roster with meh speed. I would like to see the Falcons eventually get a situational guy that is just fast as **** with a limited route tree. Only bring him in for Go routes. I just don't like Julio being the only fast receiver on the roster.
  17. Why is Landon Collins falling? Is he not as good as scouts are saying? We have a need at FS...?
  18. Funny how most players we cut don't get signed by anyone else.
  19. But which draft pick do you have to give up is the big question... Brandon Marshall (yes, I know, diff. position) at 31 got a 5th round trade, maybe we can give up a 4th?
  20. I have a serious question. I don't like to call people's jobs into question, but I have to ask about Ledbetter. How does he get by at the AJC? Do they like him a lot more than we do? Do they just not want to hire anyone else? In his reporting he makes outright false claims a lot of the time and numerous typos in his articles.
  21. How you cut Blalock before you cut Sam Sack Maker Baker is beyond me.
  22. The sooner you realize how much easier it is to have a good running game under a ZBS the better off you'll be. The ZBS has made some very very average running backs a lot of money. Justin Forsett was a NOBODY until he came to Baltimore and averaged over 5 yards a carry.
  23. Falcons are hiring Kyle Shanahan as their OC, per league source. Shanahan and Dan Quinn planned to be package deal. Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter
  24. Yet another year without a Falcon at the Pro Bowl (yes I know we've had players selected) It's just sad to see no red and black at the game here these past few years. Shows how talentless this roster is outside of our skill positions.
