    How do you know that? Maybe new England picks mcgary at 32.

    This isn't what I would have done, but there's a very clear strategy to it.
    The Falcons have quality skill positions on O and D, and subpar lines.  They've invested multiple first round picks in the DL lately.
    They've wanted to draft OL early, but have commented on how difficult it is to project OL, and how it takes awhile for them to transition to the pro game.  They decided they needed to take the steps to make a better OL now.  Without the FA money to "buy" great guys, they put a development plan in place.  They'd go out and get 2 to 3 OL who should be current upgrades and sign them to short contracts.  They'd then be able to get early OL and not have to throw them to the wolves.  They can slot them in as they're ready and have an upgraded OL throughout.
    This is the type of thing that happens when a new coach comes in...hire stopgap FA's and double up in the draft.  They decided it was time to remake the OL as if they were starting new after last year's debacle.  Throughout his tenure, Ryan has shown if you give him time, he'll shred you.  And just as clearly, last year we showed we couldn't pick up a 3rd and 1 to save our lives.
    So this was the plan it seems.
     
    Personally I would have doubled up on DL and taken one OL.  But at least you have to say this...the Falcons dedicated themselves to fixing the OL now and over the long haul.

    Bottom line is the Falcons need to crush this draft.

    $7 mil in cap space for a non playoff team...
    Sounds like a bunch of overpaid, underperforming losers...

    yup, TWO penalties NOT called on Saints OL on THAT play, and you can tell the pass was tipped because you can see its rotation was effected from that point as well.

    Some of these cuts don't make any sense.  Alford does not cost a lot this season for a starting CB.  He had a down year, but you can't replace him for $7.9m.  Same goes for Brooks Reed.  A backup DE for $4.5m?  People see the rookie NFL contracts or the guys that are having great seasons on deals they signed a few years back.  That's not the going rate for FA's at those respective positions.  Cutting Schraeder for $3.9m?  Unless he's really checked out and not wanting to play anymore, you're not signing a backup RT with starting experience for that amount of money.  
    I'd start by not panicking and not cutting any of the people you want to cut.  There would be an open competition at each of their respective positions.  I would try to renegotiate Beasley and try to save at least $4m off of that $12m he's due, but if he's unwilling, then I do agree with cutting him to save the $12m in cap space.  So let's assume Beasley stays for $4m less with a new contract.
    Now I am left with $30m in cap space.  I don't have to replace a backup DE, an edge rusher, a starting CB (possibly moved to Nickel if Oliver can step up), a backup RT, and a backup swing OG.  My expectation is filling at least 2 starting positions in the draft, a starting OG or RT and a LB.  I'm adding 5 other players in the draft for depth, along with the depth we have and getting Pro Bowl starters back from injury.  
    I'm left with $25m in cap space looking for 2 new starters on the OL, a starter at DE, and possibly a starting NT depending on how Senat is developing in the offseason.

    If only there were a way to watch this game from the comfort of one’s home, or another location. 
    Someone should create a device where people could watch a game remotely via a screen.
    Or perhaps a device that could capture the game for viewing at a later date.

    I think it’s a valid observation by OP.  If a team’s best kick returner isn’t returning kicks, something is wrong

  12. TheeTKOBeatz liked a post in a topic by vel in Thomas Dimitroff on the sense of urgency to win now: ‘We know that it is about this year’   
    I disagree. Again, Julio is already under contract. It's easy to create cap space with an extension. If anything, his cap hit will be neutral before it goes up by any considerable amount. 
    Same with Grady. Give him a 5yr $75MM deal, which is about where I think he lands. That's a $10-13MM year one hit. After that, there are no major FAs to re-sign that would kill the cap. Also, TD already said this:
    Players will be cut and contracts will be reworked to create space. There are plenty of FAs that will be available, as are every year. This is not a broken roster. The DL doesn't need anchor pieces. The OL already has the two most important positions locked down at LT and C. Take the Colts for example. They had Castonzo and Kelly. That's it. Added Nelson in the first and Smith in the second. Took a chance on Glowinski and now suddenly have one of the best OLs. It's not farfetched.

    -Experience coach
    -Experience within the divison
    -Ryan’s favorite OC
    -As a HC, always gave the Saints fits
    We’ll be fine with Koetter as the OC
  14. TheeTKOBeatz liked a post in a topic by atljbo in As long as the Falcons put more money into the skill positions than the trenches they will be mediocre   
    Yup
    3rd highest paid LT
    5th highest paid Center
    11th highest paid RT 
    13th highest paid LG
     
    We had one of the highest paid lines if I'm not mistaken ... 
     
    To me it's not about putting more money into the O-Line... but just as important we should be investing higher picks in the O-Line.... 
    You are developing more talented players at a lower cost ... That allows you money to invest in the defense...  If a talented D-Lineman gets released.. You can go after him

    Armstrong needs to be fired. We've had horrible starting field position for a long time due to our terrible PR/KR game and one of our discarded PR/KR Andre Roberts is currently one of the league's best at it.
