    If this crisis were a game, Matt’s thrown for 375 and 4 TDs.

    Quite possibly the most underrated and under appreciated future HOF QB of all time

    Ghosts of Glanville got a reaction from A Pimp Named Slickback™ in Takk's 5th Year Declined!   
    These rules are all we needed to know.   The Falcons can 1). Guarantee the 5th year to a guy that, while he plays hard, has an underlying injury, or 2) see how this year plays out and franchise him if he produces.   Basically the organization is chancing a risk premium that is the difference between the current 5th year cost vs the tag, which under these new rules sounds like it wouldn’t be that big of a number.   Actually a shrewd move by the FO. 
     
    But this is the Falcons, and we know how it will play out:  Takk will blow up this year with 18 sacks, we’ll be a surprise 11-5 and win in the Wild Card round.  Then Quinn will blow the Divisional game while Takk reinjures himself in the 2nd half.   The FO will feel compelled to tag him despite the injury concerns, Takk will get about 4 sacks, we fall to 7-9, the fans run him out of town, and the next year he goes to Dallas or Miami and becomes a regular Pro Bowler, and the same fans who ran Takk off yell about TD not re-signing him.   Par for the course.

    The CBA changes likely influenced the decision some. Here are the changes to 5th year under new CBA. I think we will see less teams using it moving forward, as they can just ride it out and franchise the player if needed. Also should lead to less teams trading up to the end of round one to get the 5th year option year. No more benefit to 5th year as they all get the same whether drafted 2 or 32!
     
    There will be no more distinction, when calculating fifth-year option prices for first-round picks, between players picked in the top 10 and players picked between 11 and 32. Under the new deal, everyone's fifth-year option will be based on performance and can be as high as the franchise tag number for his position.
    If a team exercises the fifth-year option on its first-round pick, that option is fully guaranteed. As of now, a fifth-year option is guaranteed for injury only at the time it's exercised and doesn't convert to a full guarantee until the start of the league year in which the fifth-year option applies. Teams have to decide on fifth-year options in advance of the player's fourth season (which is not a change from the previous deal), so having to fully guarantee it at that time could affect some teams' decisions.

    I've always liked Takk & pulled for him & been a fan of how powerfully he can push within a few feet of the QB.  He's been very unlucky on quite a number of rushes too.  Having said that,  if he doesn't want to be in Atlanta, then his heart will begin to leave anyways.
    He too cryptic with everything.  That's what bugs me.  Just fkg say what's up.  All the bullchit twitter crap is so lame.  If you got something to say, say it!  Don't mope around with little cryptic tweets all the time.

    Bartkowski had 3 great seasons.  Ryan has 10+ to date.  Ryan’s historic comparable is Fouts, and Fouts was waaay better than Bart over their full careers.

    Never fails. Every year the mandatory Bulldog's homer thread during the draft gets made and the false narrative that it's the path to success gets pushed. SMDH.

    Each week every player is out there with his future on the line.   You’re going to tell an average level guy to play at half speed so the team can draft someone that will take his paycheck?   Good luck with that
    its the same logic that leads people to think TD has a big “Trade Back” button on his desk at the draft.  Simple answers to very complex problems.

    Agree, but here we are.   This franchise is stuck in no man’s land.  Too much talent to crash and burn, but not enough depth to get over the top.   Bad planning, bad timing and bad luck are all to blame.  
     
    Ryan and Julio are becoming the Stockton and Malone of the NFL.  
    This is why I’ve crossed “see the Falcons win the Super Bowl” off my bucket list and will replace it with something more realistic, like “build my own moon rocket” or “buy Quebec”.
