  1. The draft started getting better once MIke Smith and the confusing evolution of his hybrid-amoeba defensive cluster**** thing got out of here. DQ does a great job of deciding what he wants from the grocery store. TD does a great job of shopping.
  2. I'd be really interested in this if it meant getting DeVondre more snaps as a pass rusher. We keep hearing about him having trained with Chuck Smith and having worthwhile tools as a pass rusher, but rarely see him any actually being tasked with going after the QB
  3. We **** near beat equal or superior teams (Eagles, Saints, Bengals) while still getting new guys acclimated to the system. We don't need to re-invent the wheel now that guys have stabilized in there positions and roles in order to beat the Skins or Browns. Against Washington, we need to make sure we tackle. There is no one player that is gonna change that formula for us. Against Cleveland, we need to handle their front 4 and not let Baker be super fast-agile-break tackles- guy.....no one we could add in a trade is gonna change that. Guys doing there effing jobs is plenty sufficient.
  4. I feel like if most of you knew how to differentiate between man coverage and a "3 look" you all would have a better opinion of Tru. Also if you all had an appreciation for how virtually impossible for a single guy to cover a drag route, that would help also. Tru can definitely be more consistent as a tackler. And he definitely needs to learn how to catch....but he is not nearly a problem for our defense.
  5. The key is us building momentum and getting back to .500 with Deion. 6-4 is a real possibility by Thanksgiving. Every team has adversity on some level every year. Every team has not really dealt with whatever adversity is coming for them as of yet. Other teams will fall back to the pack, we just have to catch up to it. I'll add this.. If we do the impossible and get to 11 wins, Matty Ice gets his 2nd MVP, ala the "run the table" argument that the media tried to push in '16 for Rodgers
  6. I'm optimistic....Ito has sufficiently replaced Free, he just needs more touches. And I think Tevin will eventually come back around to his normal self. Kazee has kept the secondary organized enough to not get gashed by the long ball regularly, which is the foundation of our defensive philosophy, and he adds a bigger threat of forcing a turnover. So i think we're in position to weather Rico's injury pretty well, too. Deion is coming back. And so is Grady. And Shelby, who has value in being a steady presence in the rotation If we can some how get a ticket to the dance and all we really are missing is Free and Keanu, then I think we stand as good a chance as anyone to come out of the NFC. The only world beater out there is LA, and our D actually matches up decently with them
  7. Matt Ryan needs to take responsibility for taking over calls in the red-zone? This gentleman ain't watched the game. We've EXCELLED in the redzone of late. This man doesn't know what he's talking about.
  8. The most interesting thing to me is that it seems to imply that Schweitzer has won backup center....if he’s first up off the bench, maybe Garland is at risk. Especially if Gono is deemed to valuable to risk going to PS. Gono can play G/T Schweitzer is a C/G Sambrailo is a T And Harlow arguably is being groomed to compete for Levitre’s spot next year and is a big risk to try and sneak on PS again this season
  9. Writer didn't name the Falcons because by the time he got around to naming the weaknesses and flaws of the other contenders, he couldn't come up with a reasonable one. QB? No, we know what Ice did the last time he was in year two with a coordinator. RB? Before the Saints last year, DeVonta and Tevin were the undisputed best tandem in the NFL WR? Can Marshon Lattimore hold 3 receivers at one time? TE? At best, he can say Hoop is a middle of the road starter. But not only us that probably an inaccurate statement.....but he's better than what the Saints are trotting out and a "meh" tight end is hardly a reason to discount a teams super bowl chances. OL- We upgraded what possibly could have been the only weak spot on the line at RG with Fusco DL- If he's giving Alex Okafor and Davenport props based on POTENTIAL, then he would have to gargle and swallow all that a Beasley/McKinley combo would offer LB? Demario Davis is impressive/ Debo is a top 3 MLB in the league. And DeVondre is beyond useful. Is Duke as a 3rd LB a biggest enough weakness to disregard the Falcons,lol? CB? C'mon. Assuming we concede Lattimore as legitimate (which we don't), who is covering the other receiver? Meanwhile, we can go 5 deep with guys that can confidently play man to man once Oliver gets up to speed Safety? Marcus Williams is cool....but cmon. Keanu Neal and Rico are both better in their respective roles We Literally are better at every position on defense.We are better at WR and TE. Reasonable debates can be had with QB and OL, maaaaaybe even HB. But honestly. The fact that there is a chance that we are LITERALLY BETTER AT EVERY SINGLE POSITION GROUP says something. Plus we don't have health issues. What they have a distinct advantage at is Brees/ Payton playcalling/chemistry. Can argue with a pairing that has been together 10+ years. But even that playcalling on one-side of the ball doesn't make up for the overall talent level on the rosters.
  10. I think Shelby's initial cutting was more of a cap management move than anything else....needed to try an save money this year and next.....signing him back, we really didn't save money this season. But he is off the books for next year, which is huge in keeping our young core together. Also of benefit, we get another shot at both Shelby and Ishmael signing FA contracts that may benefit of us in the 2020 compensatory pick calculations. With all the big money we are going to be throwing around in the near future, it makes sense that we accrue as much viable cheap talent as possible.
  11. I agree. To take it a step further, I think Shelby/Crawford take over a chunk of Reed’s snaps so that Reed is available for more if Takk’s #3 DE/Pass rush snaps Someone posted a metric on it a while ago, but Brooks was surprisingly effective rushing the passer the past two years
  12. Either one is probably better than a year one Taven Bryan.
  13. This!!! This is exactly why it’s asinine for people to panic early in the offseason..... got to give plans a chance to play out.
  14. I'd assumer Brooks Reed would continue to get a similar number of snaps as last year....
