  1. He was listed as FS on the depth chart that got put out on the Falcons website long before those pics came out, hence why the person captioned him as FS The people who run the Falcons website do not get inside knowledge on the team’s plans. We’re not moving him to FS
  2. Gono is a very solid backup tackle. Ideal depth. But his level of play took a dip at guard I agree Andrews is the favorite to start. Seems unlikely Mayfield sees the field in starting capacity this season. Mayfield has been practicing some at T but I think that’s more to due with Gono’s injury, the plan for Mayfield is eventually LG I really hope Arthur and Ledford can work some magic at LG and C, because if not things will go downhill in a hurry
  3. Embiid is truly a freak. Bootleg Curry was on fire all series. Major props to our guys for beating them that was impressive I didn’t realize Philly was 62-9 at home their last 71 games there. Dominant. And then we beat them 3 times out of 4 games there this series wow Also I think Shaq really likes us lol
  4. What a win!! Trae gotta clean up his shots asap if we’re gonna have a chance against the Bucks but I have faith
  5. McGary is our RT cornerstone as well, we have 3/5 of the line in a really good place for at least the next few years
  6. Stopped when he said he ranked Kyle as #4 in the draft and I’m a guy who thinks we wanted Lance (yes even after that draft room video was released)
  7. Our regression to the mean for one-score games may be offset by the expected regression to the mean for injuries.
  8. Good start to the season. Can’t afford Jake or Kaleb to miss any time whatsoever now
  9. Walmart Curry looks like the real thing against us
  10. I think this is just them taking 2020 grades and then they have their tiers from replaceable to elite that they’re slotting guys into They had a list the other day of the best 10 Lb’s in football and had Debo like #6. He just had a meh season, his effort wasn’t consistent but with some competency in the coaching staff I expect he’ll be giving his all again
  11. I usually lean towards signing talented guys who have had trouble staying healthy. I like that kind of gamble. As long as you don’t try to fill too many spots with them obviously lol. May view it differently over the next 10 years watching football but that’s how I feel rn
  12. NFL turnarounds can be in a snap especially if the QB spot is taken care of. If you have a good QB in the NFL then making a run always has the ability to be dependent on as little as one offseason
  13. Ian Rapoport said today that Julio approached the team about a trade in late February
  14. Gotcha. I thought it had been done before. Thanks
  15. Hoard all the OT’s 5 starting caliber OT’s let’s get it
  16. Why not? Agree to trade in principle and make the move post June 1st
  17. I will say we should’ve dealt Julio when we had a 2nd on the table for the ‘21 draft. That was a bad gamble by Terry to think you could drum up interest and get a team to give up a 1st for a 32 yr old injured WR, even if it’s one of the best to do it Assuming the report about a firm 2nd rounder is true, I’m a bit disappointed
  18. They’re both great pass catchers. But Pitts is a great pass catcher at 6’6 245 lbs with 4.4 speed and as I heard somebody put it, he earns his reps at TE. Which is fair. He’s not an unwilling blocker like Jimmy G was. And there’s a large amount of value being able to genuinely line a guy up inline in terms of mismatches put a corner on him - can line up and bully him in run game. Put a LBer/safety and it’s gonna be a mismatch in the passing game whether Pitts is inline or you split him out wide. But what makes Pitts worth #4 overall is he’s a mismatch in the passing game regardless.
  19. So Shannon says he talked to Julio and followed it up by saying Julio’s pride was damaged when he heard he would be available to be traded for.. but another report that came out yesterday said Julio wasn’t even responding to Smith reaching out when he first became coach and reached out to the players. And then the report above about it being 2 years in the making etc.. Guess we may never know the true story of how this all went down
  20. Dam bro idk what to say Julio.. the organization did what he asked but because they didn’t essentially give him a blank check on the spot he started to have a problem with the team Also interesting that Quinn getting fired further fractured his relationship with the team, given that he said he wants to win.. maybe there is some truth to Julio not wanting to be held to the same standard as everyone else and having to practice etc
  21. To be fair I think it was confirmed we were offered a 2nd for the 2021 draft. Hard to blame Font since he was thrown into the fire in this situation, but we did lose some value there. Whatever, least we have a team of guys who want to be here now
