  1. Nah, the first and third DPI's he had very good physical coverage. The only one he got torched on was the 2nd one due to a terrific head fake from Ridley and even then he still had the opportunity to make a play on the ball if he got his head around (my biggest knock on him) because Ryan grossly underthrew it. The first two are on this video at 2:04 and 3:00. Can't find a clip of the 3rd one on Blake but it's at 9:42 left in 4th quarter and Apple is in his hip pocket as he jumps the slant Blake is running.
  2. Same site as always, Pro Football Reference, these are under the "Advanced Defense & Fumbles" heading on Apple and Trufant's respective pages. But wait a minute, I thought you said Apple had a 101 (100.9) passer rating when targeted? Now it's 119? That's a mighty large discrepancy, LOL. 🤔 And Trufant's 4 INT's were very nice, I can't knock that. But he still gave up 4 TD's in 8-1/3rd games. That's a TD every 2.1 games while Apple gave up a TD every 7.1 games (going by my 2 TD number) or 4.7 games (by your 3 TD number). I don't mind giving up yards in bunches, but not points; same reason I really don't look at yards allowed for defenses I suppose. And even though it seems more geared to fantasy football, that is a pretty neat site so I appreciate you posting it. 😄
  3. Last year Trufant gave up the same passer rating (both was actually a 100.9), twice as many TD’s (4 to Apple’s 2), a higher completion % (65.8% to Apple’s 63.2%), and a higher yards/completion (17.7 to Apple’s 14.2) despite only having half the number of targets (38 to Apple’s 76). Meanwhile Sheffield surrendered a 110.0 passer rating, 74.5 completion %, 10.9 yards/completion, and 2 TD’s on 55 targets. So I’d say Apple arguably edges both of them out. 😊 I know I’m laughing! 😂
  4. And he was still better than any CB y’all trotted out there in that year and a half. 😉
  5. That boy got some wheels and the perfect amount of wiggle. Been a minute since we had a punt returner of his caliber and I missed it.
  6. Meh, not sure why, neither one of them really torched Apple repeatedly. At least when he was with us that is.
  7. It wasn’t, but losing a key cog of the offensive line in the middle of any divisional game is a recipe for disaster. It’s no coincidence that 4 of those 6 sacks came after Peat exited the game, and 2 of those were given up by Clapp, his replacement. When you don’t have a backup lineman coming in cold during the middle of the game and that player has adequate practice time with the 1’s, it makes an immense difference. Hence why y’all never got to Brees even once in our meeting 3 weeks later despite still having a backup at LG.
  8. 🥰 LOOOOOL, I like to think Cam is peering into the souls of every poster here that see my posts. 😂😂
  9. I like to think I have a pretty good sense of humor so much appreciated. 😄
  10. So I see they give just anyone a degree at Kennesaw State. I wouldn’t count on one of our linemen breaking an arm every game against y’all. 😉
  11. 😏 I was at a concert the night he was traded and I couldn’t stop laughing at what the Rams gave up for him. They’re really letting Snead run that team into the ground with those personnel decisions.
  12. Ramsey is a chump. He didn’t want any of Michael Thomas in our game last year either, hiding behind his “back injury” only to get traded 3 days later and then suit up against y’all the next week. 🙄
  13. Yeah, it's definitely you that can't read because I didn't "disappear a couple days" after the first game, I was posting here that night. If you don't believe me... Example 1, Example 2, Example 3, Example 4 4 posts in 4 different threads between 2:35 a.m. and 3:36 a.m. after the game so before you try to get all about the semantics of "tHoSe PoStS aRe FrOm nOvEmBeR 11tH tHo!" It was still "today" for me since I hadn't gone to bed yet that night. And for comparison, I only posted twice after we dragged y'all 3 weeks later on Thanksgiving. But please continue living in your delusional fantasy land where facts don't exist because you truly are as clueless as your posting history suggests. Bless your heart, child. Why would we need a new stadium when we come throw our feet up on your couch whenever we want? And watch y'all do absolutely nothing about it. We have a new stadium, it's at 1 AMB Dr NW, Atlanta, GA 30313. He was hurt as a child. He's still grieving. OHHHHHHHHHH, you actually think Tom Segura is funny. That explains a whole lot about your intelligence. I apologize for making fun of you, it's not nice to pick on the developmentally delayed. I'll leave you to watch your Jeff Dunham specials again.
  14. Cheeky *******! 😏 LMAO, suuuuuure you have, friend. You’re the one crying about “tWo PaGeS iS tO mUcH tO rEaD!” Go sit down while the adults are talking. I’m not sure why you’re so caught up about what name is on the side of the building. We’ll still beat you here, we’ll beat you there, we’ll beat you everywhere. I figure you’d like some Dr. Seuss. 😉 Complacency seems to be a running theme in the Falcons organization, from the owner all the way down to the message boards I see. 😋
  15. They better eat their Cheerios those mornings! And wonderful! So 24 sacks or less and I'll be the victor, 25 or more and you'll be victorious. Nowhere did I say Mercedes-Benz is a ****ty company, quite the opposite in fact, but you didn't pick that up due to your poor reading comprehension where I stated and I quote, "enjoy y'all corporate sponsor, it's definitely a good one." Well that and you apparently think 2 pages is long, LOLOL. Besides my posts, the longest thing you've probably tried to read in your life is the back of a cereal box. You're out of your element, friend. And obviously it has lasted just fine without a naming sponsor, unlike another certain unnamed dome in Georgia that barely made it to its 26th birthday before getting demolished. 7 Super Bowls in that "dump" (will make it 8 in 2024) and the NFL keeps coming back for more. I'd bet Mercedes-Benz Stadium doesn't even get to 4, which would be two more than that previously aforementioned unnamed dome had. I guess Mercedes-Benz Stadium has what? Another ~23 years before Blank wants to knock it down too and put another mall in its place? Hopefully the MARTA bus doesn't botch the demolition of that one too.
  16. I'm only teasing, I don't have any ill will towards Foxworthy. He's a good dude, haha. I'm ashamed to admit it but I caught a couple of his specials a few times or 17... 👀 And holy crap, I don't think we did! I bookmarked it but I think the new emojis distracted us from agreeing on a line, LOLOLOL. I'm still good with 24.5 if we're going to use our sack total of 25 from last year as the baseline.
  17. I mean it is. It looks just like every mall I've ever gone to. 🤷‍♂️ And it's quiet like the Sears stores in those malls too. 😴 Also, you can quote me next time, I don't bite... unless you ask me to. 😉 All of 'em but my top wisdom teeth, but nah. I enjoy terrorizing y'all far too much to join y'all side. Well even though they had a home here, neither are technically from here, but we accept them since they're great philanthropists. 😁 Also I really enjoyed that article, thanks for sharing. And speaking of outdated 2000's references, Jesus H. Christ. I wonder how Xzibit is doing these days. I hope he saved his money. Or what? Don't make me file a law suit on you.
  18. This isn't actually new information as a poster previously pointed out. But despite what the facade on the building said, it was never the "Mercedes-Benz Superdome" anyway. It always has, and always will be simply, "the Superdome". Much like Lambeau Field, Soldier Field, and Arrowhead, the Superdome doesn't need any corporate naming rights because it's already cultivated its own identity through its longevity. Mercedes-Benz has no use in retaining the name rights to both venues in the same division when one is colloquially referred to as something else anyway. Mercedes-Benz Stadium however, due to its relatively new status and cookie cutter design, has never had another name and has no identity of its own. That's the easy, and smart, route to go for Mercedes-Benz because even when decide to not renew their naming rights on Mercedes-Benz Stadium in whatever year and another corporation assumes its spot, people will still more than likely call it "Mercedes Benz Stadium" and as a corporation, that's what you want: brand recognition. Same reason Microsoft gets bent out of shape when broadcasters call the on-field Surface tablets "iPads". Mercedes-Benz will never get that with the Superdome even if they stay another 20-30 years. So please, go ahead and enjoy y'all corporate sponsor, it's definitely a good one. Just remember we still had it first. 😜 So much like every dome stadium that has come before it, the Superdome name will outlast any corporate naming they try to stick in front of or behind it. The Superdome went its first 36 years of existence without any corporate naming entity, it can easily go another 36+ years without one too and we're fine with that. There's a reason that every fan base that has a heavy presence traveling goes and circles the "@Saints" game on their calendar when the schedule comes out and it isn't because of the name on the side of the building. They drop big money on game tickets and hotels to come to that game because of the atmosphere, something that can't be bought. P.S. And are these really the best name puns y'all can come up with? I assumed y'all were a more creative bunch than this, but y'all still tossing out the same stale jokes from the early-2000's. Then again I shouldn't be too surprised considering this is a state that made Jeff Foxworthy into a multi-millionaire.
  19. Well we can't be having that now, can we? 😜 Nah, Peat is better than Warford at run blocking; Peat is a mauling run blocker. Warford has/had an edge in pass blocking, but Peat is also far more versatile being able to play every position but center while I only believe Warford can only play OG and maybe center. In 2017 and 2018, I'd agree that Peat would've been the "weak link" on our line, but not last year. Peat's also two and a half years younger while Warford is nearing 30. At 30 years old, the organization probably felt he wouldn't garner significant big money offers in free agency next year to possibly set up a 2022 compensatory pick if we retained him this year to finish out his contract, so when no teams bit on trading for him, they probably just saw it a better option to free up a little extra money on the books to setup another move by letting him go.
