  1. Definitely, Debo didn’t get enough play time at LSU till the last year. He probably would have been top picks if he played more at LSU.
  2. Ask Saint Ray or Aints trolls here to post.
  3. How many top 5 defenses did other QB have in their careers? GB has been winning well before Rodgers became starter. At this point Brees over Rodgers. He may be talented but not yet in conversation for all time great QB.
  4. If Ryan threw that pick in OT, many would be vocal about sending him out of town.
  5. Debo did more in first 3 weeks of his NFL career than Duke Riley in 2 years. He had some stuff to learn but pick 6 against Brees in first 3 games of his career showed what Debo was capable of in nfl.
  6. Not DQ era. Duke Riley was trade down to top 3rd round. He is underwhelming.
  7. Falcons DL stats through first 4 seasons. 1. Vic Beasley: 62 games, 29.5 Sacks ( most sacks), 28 TFL. 9 FF 2. Patrick Kerney: 64 games, 27.5 sacks, 34 TFL. 9 FF 3. Mike Pitts: 62 Games, 25 sacks 4 Chuck Smith: 60 games, 22 Sacks 5. Travis Hall : 45 games, 21 Sacks 6. Rick Bryan: 57 games, 19 sacks 7. Aundray Bruce: 63 games, 16 sacks. 8. Mike Gann : 60 games, 15 sacks. Biggest busts: Jamaal Anderson 4.5 sacks. There are many DB who had more sacks than him. End of busts: Special mention: Kroy Biermann. Had 12.5 sacks in first 4 years in limited playing time. Rounds up the top 10. Edit: First 4 years, All time top 10 picks in first round DE/OLB sacks: Vic is 11th In sacks and 13 in TFL for loss compared to other top 10 picks.
  8. Anonymous donor who didn’t want saints to play in his brand new stadium.
  9. Some times he gets too carried away by prototypical size and measurements. Then you get Lamar Holmes, Peter Konz, Jallen Collins, Duke Riley and Hagman
  10. This board has never recovered from calling Vic a bust from rookie year. Even in 2016, people weren’t ready to accept they were wrong. The way I see it, Vic will have a very productive career in NFL with right fit. He is gonna get paid.
  11. He should have taken a vacation after the SB disaster. Better than embrace the suck, come back fresh and recharged.
  12. That myth has been debunked. You won’t say them for at least another season.
  13. This keeps getting better. Almost makes me forget crappy 2018 season.
  14. And who are Falcons gonna replace him with? You can’t have enough pass rushers if coaches know how to use them in a game.
  15. You can’t say outlier based on a rookie season, one season he played out of position. I will wait for some one not named Marquand Manuel using Vic before calling outliers. Richards and Freeney coaches up Vic in 2016.
  16. I think MM didn’t know how to use him or they were compensating for Duke Riley with Vic playing out of position. Also, Beasley had great year with some one like Freeney coaching him up. At this point I would bet coaching is bigger issue than Vic. Hopefully DQ the DL expert takes over and fixes.
  17. While Jones is often credited with great ability to use his size and speed to get himself in position to catch passes that many other receivers cannot, Ryan’s precision should also be lauded. The former MVP’s 69.4 completion percentage was 4.6 percentage points higher than expected (64.8), giving him the fifth-best differential between expected and actual completion percentage in the NFL. This highlights Ryan’s ability to put the ball in places where his receivers can make plays. This reminds me of the Great throw and catch in SB. If the ball was off by couple of inches, it would have been incomplete. All they had to do was run run run kick.
  18. Falcons in Smitty Era had good contributors in second round, may be except couple of years. 2008: Lofton. 2009: Willy Mo 2010: 2nd traded for TG, Corey Peters was solid pick in 3rd. 2011: 1-2 Julio. 2012: Konz. Bad pick but at least he stepped up in 2012. 2013: Alford 2014: Hageman. A project pick and waste.
  19. They are sore losers. Falcons got some terrible calls in SB but we blame the coaches and not refs.
  20. No doubt the Falcons are very thin and one injury away from crapping the bed. OT/ OG can be addressed in FA. It all depends who is available.
  21. You can pretty much upgrade every player on the roster except for may be few handful. I would start with Average and below average players then move up the chain. Duke Riley should have been that upgrade pick but DQ and company missed out. Campbell is good And Debo is great. The rest are average or below. I like Devin white but Falcons should look at all options available at LB and sign a good veteran in FA.
  22. I would upgrade Foye first and then Campbell next year when he is gone. Foye is great story for a 6th round pick but great stories don’t win football games. Foye will get his reps in rotation and if he can step up and be a high level starter , it’s gonna be great.
  23. I always liked Foye from the day he was drafted. He over achieved in the LB group. TBH I was disappointed with Campbell this year. Foye’s better games of the season were Cleveland, Washington and GB. Foye is slow at game speed, too many Yards after catch or too many missed tackles. He is a good rotational piece and I wouldn’t mind if Falcons bring in a starter at LB. Duke Riley should be on the bubble for roster spot going in to camp.
  24. No. I am enjoying that spoiled fan base crying over bad calls .no need to make them feel better for getting good calls over the years.
