    Clowney has been pretty steady and healthy since his rookie year.  My issue is 29 sacks in 5 years

    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.

    We need to understand that BB is an alltime great. Quinn, McVay, Sean Payton, Doug Pederson, all these coaches are good coaches but arent BB. 

    Melo, Harden, Dirk, Parker, Kyrie. All good basketball players. They aren't Lebron.

    Sometimes in sports there are just alltime greats that are simply going to be better than the field and everyone will try to compare and compete but you just can't. It doesn't happen all the time but its happening now with BB and we kind of just have to accept it. 

    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?

    I'm so tired of this board's infatuation with the ******* Patriots.

    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.

    Not to jump on Quinn again, but I noticed that article talking about the culture... how hard it is on the practice field at times, there is a way you are expected to practice, etc. We've also all heard talk about BB being a perfectionist, so I am sure they go over every little detail again and again and again...

    So how does that compare to the Atlanta Falcons concern with their "practice music playlist"? For some strange reason I'm not imagining BB spending a lot of time on the need to choose appropriate music to raise the enthusiasm level for practice.

    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.

    If all it took was reading an article on why the pats are so good at what they do then every team would do it. You can't copy what the pats do. Stop thinking you can. 

    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.

    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?

    Schraeder and Reed can go. Beasley still has trade value to some team - maybe a draft day trade for us to move up with our 2nd rounder. Pittsburgh makes a ton of sense.

    On the topic of other team's cuts though - Malik Jackson got buried on the Jags depth chart, but he'd be a fantastic pickup.

    I agree Schrader and Reed.

    Who do you think we should cut to get ready for free agency? Give me:

    • Bustley - $12.8M - on the fence but think we can do much better
    • Alf - $7.9M - good bye bro. Grab asser. Totally let us down in 2018
    • Shredder - $6.5M - June 1 cut. Sombrero is better. Buddy looks hurt
    • Reed - $4.5M - we can draft somebody to do better. Young edge guy
    • ButtaFusco - $3.3M - Beadles played better. Against tougher DLines
    • Ice Bryant - $2.8M - on the fence here too but I think Giorgio is ready
    • Bosher - $2.6M - major drop off on punts and kicks the last two years

    Yeah give me that $40.4M and we can go to work.Young 24-29 year old trench players that can come in and anchor the NT, LG, RG and RT positions on day one. Then go BPA in the draft in every round, at every position, even if it's QB. Get stacked. Only depend on one rookie starter in 2019. Try to draft four rookie starters. 

    Who do you think we should cut?

    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.

    Wasn't there a Captain Marvel commercial?  


    On a side note, Maroon 5 halftime show wasn't that  bad.  I think it's just the political climate more than any thing.  

    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?
