  1. After Saints I have to put Bears, Cowboys San Francisco. Chicago is going to make noise this year. Passing offense won’t be great but Mitch will progress and not shoot them in the foot while the defense will kill.
  2. Sir, if you are one on one with the tackle and the coach says “get to the QB” there is absolutely nothing systematic about that. Nothing. Vic has had a bunch of opportunities and the last two years his cumulative sack total doesn’t even surpass 10... I would like to think that if you’re really a pass rushing threat you’ll be able to get more sacks than that or impact the game regardless if you change coaches. Khalil Mack hasn’t missed one step.
  3. There is nothing systematic about beating the tackle in front of you...
  4. Couldn’t he like, plan it for another day or another week? Oh well I’m sure it’s purely coincidental but the stars are aligning for Vic to fail miserably.
  5. Nawwww some players just don’t like to perform.
  6. Best ish I read all day LMAO!
  7. It’s not over-hyped to me. Dude was the only Falcon player close to the locker room. Why would you leave your teammates out there to watch? Just stay out there; y’all came out as a team so leave as a team. To me it’s the little things that give the most insight to a player and Beasley had a BAD game that day. I was already done with him before then but after that I was just COMPLETELY finished with him. Would love for him to prove me wrong about the type of football player he is but he seems like more of an elite athlete than football player and the reason why is because he doesn’t have a competitive edge. I don’t think he will put it together this year. I’ll give him about 7-8 sacks this year, which about half will be “garbage” sacks that won’t impact the game. About 30-35 tackles. Which will probably be enough to warrant a very cheap deal to stay in ATL, which he will be fine with him, because he has more money than he ever imagined having. Which means people will continue to hope for him to become an impact player. Hence.... The Circle of Life
  8. This says everything I need to know about him as a competitor.
  9. *Hits crack pipe* Most certainly sir...
  10. Because he was a rookie.... And Keith Brooking missing his assignment on the Cardinals TE.
  11. As deadly as our passing game was in 2016, if we had an O-Line we would’ve been able to run at will. Our backfield had the talent where we could’ve had about another 3-400 more total rushing yards if they would’ve been effective enough.
  12. I’ve been saying this since forever. Matt with a solid O-Line is a Super Bowl winning QB. If he had anywhere close to the 2008 O-Line he would have two championships lol. We been needed to get back to that.
  13. I would be cool with this... Keep in mind there is job Freeman. If he can’t redeem himself I’m cool letting him go.
  14. Kaleb will be a star right tackle, mark it down. I can’t go into detail about the staff and techniques that UW teaches when it comes to blocking but yeah he will be really good.
  15. This is exactly where I’m going. If he knows the pick then the guy isn’t on anyone’s radar in the first 13 picks... Which means he MAY be a “reach” but if they’re a plug and play type guy then I can’t disagree unless dude sucks.
  16. That game vs. Florida State was sickening too.
  17. When we’ve talked defensive player options in regards to the NFL draft, everyone has brought up defensive tackle in the first round. To me, there are only 2 DT’s that could make an immediate impact on our defense day 1. Quinnen Williams Ed Oliver Both will be gone by the time it gets to #14. Which leaves us with 3 options. Reach for a defensive lineman (Yes, all other defensive linemen options will be a reach in the first round), take an offensive lineman, or trade down. I will definitely be fine with the latter two ONLY if the front office makes it up to us by picking up this player in the draft. Jachai Polite I’ve watched film... Dude has first round-grade talent. But a lot of pundents are saying “But the attitude and piss-poor combine and football IQ”. All smoke... The dude is a competitor and a football player. Combine that with the fastest first step I’ve seen in a while and dude is THE best pure pass rusher in the draft and it’s not even close. I honestly think he screwed himself in the combine on purpose because he actually plays to the measurables Vic Beasley posted in the combine. As a matter of fact, if we pick him, I think he’ll be everything Vic was supposed to be for us and could make an impact day 1. People talk about him falling to the 3rd round.... He absolutely will not lmao mark my words. I would be chomping at the bit if he fell to the late second round. The best chance we would have at getting him will be to trade down. He fits the Dan Quinn mold for sure. I hope we could get him some kind of way. In the right system he could be an absolute pass rushing monster.
  18. I wouldn’t take a first round pick on him and I would strongly debate using our only second rounder. But if we could trade down and get multiple second rounders I would take him in a heartbeat with the earliest 2nd round pick that we have. His first step is seriously something else and he actually does a good job of peeping alignments and pass protections so he’s not a dumb pass rusher he actually rushes with an IQ man I like this dude for our defense.
  19. I’m not saying he did screw himself on purpose but it’s in the realm of possibility and it’s not unprecedented (Priest Holmes). But maybe that’s a lil too conspiracy-like. In any case, I think he will be a star pass rusher; he’s further along than Takk and especially Vic was coming into the draft. Is first-step is his blue chip element that really separates him, he is incredibly special in that regard and in a defense like Quinn’s it will help him make an immediate impact. He seriously reminds me of Dwight Freeney, watch his Florida State tape it’s really good.
  20. It’s either Offensive/Defensive lineman or bust with the first pick. Greedy Williams may fall but I don’t know if he’s worth that high of a pick.
  21. That is one thing that I wish coaches would do more of. If the season is lost get some young guys as much experience as possible. Let them take their lumps then and they’ll have a better perspective of how to prepare for game day.
  22. I’ll have to watch more film on him but I’m still not feeling Oliver due to stature and lack of strength.
  23. Vic Beasley simply doesn’t know how to prepare himself as a pass rusher and as a defensive player. This dude went to a pass rushing summit with the best pass rushers in the league and has Von Miller’s and Khalil Mack’s phone number and still hasn’t developed? I’m sorry but I can’t attribute his lack of development to lack of a veteran presence. To me he is a scarecrow of a defensive player; Has the physical tools but no brain to apply what he’s been taught. It is not easy being a pass rusher and I don’t think they will ever get it, at least not in Atlanta.
  24. My prediction is that we start of very hot for about the first 6 weeks and then it will transition into the defense carrying us the rest of the season. We will be up and down in the middle of the season but hopefully defense will pick up the slack. Julio and Matt will have amazing chemistry but I’m hoping that Dirk Kotter will be able to utilize all the weapons.
  25. Dude dominated in the college and pros. I got misty-eyed when I read he left college early because his mother was on dialysis and she died in 2006. Man that had to be painful.
