    Matt Shaub will count as $5.5 against the cap this year.  Do you think he could get cut, or do we just stash a qb on the practice squad again this year?

    He’s getting cut. It was always he plan which is why his deal was back loaded. And it’s why we are talking to QBs and sending scouts to multiple games at Wyoming and Louisville. There’s a clear focus on getting a backup QB.

  2. Apparently this UNI receiver Daurice Fountain is blowing up the Shrine game practices. I watched some clips. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.



    They are almost exactly the same size. And it seems like they have similar games from the few clips I’ve seen of the kid.

    My bad UGA's athletic site hasn't updated for the 2017 season and they showed him at guard for 2016. I see he is kind of short at 6'2", officially. Could he potentially play center? 

    I don’t see why he couldn’t play center, but he’s a very good guard prospect. He might be an ideal guy for the falcons day 2. He moves really well and is a very stout run blocker (obviously). I also saw that he didn’t allow a pressure in the National championship playing against a great defense. He’s got a pro bowl ceiling at guard and will probably at least be a good run blocker.

    Maybe, but NT's have been downgraded in recent drafts, with the likes of A'Shawn Robinson & Jarren Reed falling to the 2nd when most had them as sure fire 1st round picks.

    I do think Vea and Payne are special talents though

    You’re right. I expect both to be surprise fallers in draft day just because the past few years have shown teams don’t see NTs as a valuable enough position for a first round pick. I think at least one of the big 2 falls to us in the first with a chance they both slide into the mid second round. I believe that a gap penetrating DT is more valuable, so I’m taking Hurst or Wilkins before Payne or Vea.

    Anyway, what I’m trying to say is, there’s going to be a good DT prospect available at 32. I’m pretty confident in that. 

  5. I’d love to see us get Flower/Samuels (I like Flowers but that’s just because I’ve watched actual tape of him and not Samuels yet) and Troy Fumagalli. Line up with 2 tight ends and a fullback, and you’d have nice blockers who are legit receiving threats for play action out of heavy set. That’s the recipe for a lot of cheap TDs and short yardage conversions .

  6. I like him. I’m not willing to write off Hooper, but we need more at tight end. I need to see him Goedert as a blocker before I anoint him as an option here. I really like Fumagalli right now. He’s a good run blocker and has sure hands. Cheap first downs and TDs as a TE2 in heavy formations seem like a certainty if he were here.

    I hope we get an OG in the FA. Would rather not have to wait for him to develop.

    Unless it’s Quentin Nelson. The kid is as good as I’ve seen. So good that we might have to do a Julio type trade to get up that high. That’s not going to happen, nor do I want it to. But the fact that a guard is that highly regarded says a lot. Tbh, I’m fine rolling with what we have a guard. It worked fine, and there’s only a couple guys I’ve seen so far that I think could set in and do better.

  8. Josh Allen huh? That’s weird. If he falls, it’ll be the best for him to sit for a long time behind a very good QB. I don’t like him, but he’s got the tools. If he is given the keys to a franchise, I have very little doubt he will be a huge bust. But he could be something here. Now if we drafted Lamar Jackson, who we have seen at Louiseville, I’d be over the moon. 

    I really like Fumagalli from Wisconsin. He’s a pretty good blocker and has great hands. He’d let us dump Toilolo’s contract and get a much better receiver.

    Whoa whoa whoa there buddy. Manuel said he is the best at getting the ball carrier down on the ground, other than Earl Thomas. That's a far cry from saying 2nd best FS, LOL.

    You’re right. Tbh I only saw the McClure tweet. But still. I think the falcons are committed 

  10. I hate the saints with every ounce of being. Except Kamara because I played against him all through high school. But it should be Lattimore and Kamara without a doubt. Hunt has a case, by Kamara was more of a game changer down the stretch. Lattimore is one of the best corners in the league unfortunately.

    Don't waste your time. What ya trying to say homie? I will continue to defend Michael Bennett. We need more brothers like him. Kaep too. Now, go to your rally.

    Amen.  The dirty play makes me a bit hesitant, but I’d love to have Bennett on board. I mean I’d rock a Kaep Jersey daily if he were a falcon but that’s neither here nor there. Bennett is a real possibility, and he could make this defense elite. I don’t think he will be that expensive if he’s cut.

    Looking back, I bet the Hens regret the Jimmy Graham trade.  Seattle gave up pro bowl center Max Unger....if memory serves.  Seattles O line has regressed it seems, every year since while (don't know who's fault it was) Jimmy played Casper.

    Go Falcons

    Jimmy Graham has easily been a top 5 tight end outside of his first season there when he was hurt a lot of it. He had almost 1,000 yards last year and had 10 TDs this year. Public perception of him has been weirdly down though. I don’t know why.

  13. This coaching staff is absolutely not moving on from Rico. He’s there guy on defense. He’s the leader, and he’s stepped up to the plate with that role. Our DC said he was the best FS in the league besides Earl Thomas. I’m betting he gets a 5 year extension this offseason.


    I would be stunned if he’s not the long term plan.
