  1. Anyone else find it strange there's DE's and DT's, but then just OL instead of Center, Guard, and Tackle? It's funny how WR's and CB's get paid more than most of the trenches even though it all starts on the lines.
  2. With all the success the Patriots have without diva WR #1's I don't see why they would pursue one. It just makes no sense to me.
  3. Less than 6 a year, yeah he's not exactly setting the world on fire. For all the hype he sure hasn't lived up to it. I remember when it seemed everyone here wanted him on the Falcons and was willing to give up everything to have him.

  5. I get what you're saying but it's not like they're unbeatable. One of BB's keys to success is to study his opponents through and through. If everyone just decides the Patriots are the best and there's nothing that can be done about it then what is everyone else striving for?
  6. Haha all good man. I get it. I hate them too.
  7. I guess we could talk about what the Browns have done to put all the Lombardi's they have in their trophy case.... oh wait.
  8. Sometimes it's like the Falcons in the 4th quarter of a Super Bowl. It just decided to not show up.
  9. Good point. While Quinn is trying to find the right 2 Pac song BB and company are cross training to play multiple positions and studying opponents inside and out.
  10. Obviously not everything mentioned can be duplicated. However there are things that can be. For example cross training players for multiple positions, place more value on intelligence, get tougher mentally/physically, everyone be about the team.
  11. You're probably right. Nobody else will put in the work that they do. Most if not all of this is foreign to the Falcons. We expect the Falcons to be them or beat them. How without the effort or work?
  12. Look no further than this to see why NE is so great. Can the Falcons start doing this stuff please?

  14. I'm just going to hope that with Quinn running the defense Vic can be successful. I believe the best way to use a player like him is to be aggressive. Blitz, use stunts. You know, the things we always see other teams doing in big games.
  15. I wish all the Falcons players were as dedicated as Matt Ryan.
  16. I'm down for trading for Gurley. After the Super Bowl performance I'd give a 7th rounder for him.
  17. I'm disappointed by this move. Wish Bryant the best. Someone will sign him for sure. As for the replacement he's got some big shoes to fill.
  18. I agree Schrader and Reed. I think it was already mentioned around here that Quinn wants Beasley back right? We know Alford is gone so that goes without saying. I'd keep Bryant. He's consistent and gets the job done. What more can you ask for out of a kicker? Besides, the savings isn't even that much. It's never known how valuable a reliable veteran kicker is until you don't have one. As for the others I don't really care either way. One thing to consider is even when change is needed it's careful to make sure you don't change so much there's a regression. Sometimes doing too much can be counter productive.
  19. My wife loves Maroon 5 and even though it's not my ideal music to listen to I think they're ok. That said we both thought the halftime show was terrible. On a side note the commercials have been going downhill for quite some time. It's disappointing. So there goes all the non football fans who would watch. As for the game itself, very boring. I love a defensive game myself. However, I feel like it wasn't as much the defenses were good as it was the offenses just sucked. It appeared the Patriots knew exactly what the Rams were going to do all night. It felt like watching a 2nd half Falcons game where no adjustments were ever made. Except, it was for the entire game. If there's one thing coaches and players should learn from this super bowl is you better drastically change things up before you face BB and the Patriots. Then on the only TD drive of the game the Patriots pulled a page from a madden game and cheesed their way down the field using the exact same play 3 times in a row. Why didn't the Rams ever double Edelman?
  20. I'm so silly. I thought AB was Arthur Blank at first.....
  21. Don't forget all the rule changes. I get player safety. Really I do. But football is not a safe sport. Nor is it supposed to be.
  22. Who knows. Maybe he's injured and not playing in this hypothetical. I still can't believe Freeman didn't take more heat for it though. One of two things happened on that play. Either Freeman had no idea what was going on. Or he purposely let him go to prove a point the Falcons should be running the ball. Either way it's unacceptable.
  23. As much as I hate seeing the Patriots win it at least I can find some comfort in the fact that you have the Patriots, then you have everyone else.
  24. The Gurley/Beasley comparison is flat out ridiculous at this point. You could have given the Falcons both of them and almost certainly they still don't win a Super Bowl to this point.
  25. Shouldn't everyone be like the Patriots?
