  1. 5 yards, 10 yards, either way, roddy was at the 5 yard line ........................
  2. Lets go back. We HAD a Superbowl Championship team. This is kinda a counterpoint to my " keep Julio Jones" thread. Back in 2012, teams FEARED the falcons offense. Nobody could stop them, and thats even with a run game that was lacking in short yardage situations. We all know the defense wasnt GREAT, but it wasnt as bad as it GOT. All they needed was ONE OR TWO difference makers on defense, and we wouldve been ok. Here is the mistakes, in my opinion, that lead us to where we are today. Dimitroff trading up wasnt the mistake. Here are the mistakes: 1. Not back loading Matt Ryan's contract extension with guaranteed money. That move lead to these mistakes: 2. Not resigning John Abraham. PROVED HE HAD MORE LEFT IN ARIZONA. 3. Not resigning Tyson Clabo. SOLID. DID HIS JOB 4. Bringing in Umenyiora to REPLACE Abraham, instead of bookending him WITH abraham. 5. Not resigning Dunta Robinson. THE PHYSICAL PRESENCE ALONG WITH MOORE. LEGION OF BOOM 6. Not resigning Brent Grimes ( this is effy, but shouldve worked something out) I CAN DREAM OF HIM IN THE SLOT NICKEL WITH TRUFANT AND ROBINSON ON THE OUTSIDE. 7. Not finding a adequate replacement for michael turner 8. Not doing what it took to keep Jason Snelling in the fold. SOLID ALL AROUND RUNNING BACK. THERE was the superbowl right there. We didnt need a complete home makeover. I really feel that Osi, WITH Abraham on the other side, wouldve gave Osi one or two more good years because we know they couldnt have brought the double team on both he and abraham. In max protect, advantage the falcon secondary........ Again, if Quinn doesnt succeed, im blaming Dimitroff and Pioli because Mike Smith, as bad as some of the decisions he made, Dimitroff is the one who let those players go. Dimitroff has the final call on the roster.
  3. Its unbelievable, really. Seems like everyday, a " get rid of julio jones " thread is made. We NEED player (s) like Julio Jones. Scrubs dont win championships. A lot of fans werent upset when the falcons didnt resign Deion Sanders. Julio is THAT caliber of athlete. He CAN DOMINATE....... Its about SUPERBOWLS......nothing else matters. Ask San Fran and Dallas HOW they both notched a extra Superbowl title onto their resumes. They went and got the best player available that could dominate and change a game. We have seen Julio dominate, its not his fault the falcons didnt have a defense that could carry their weight. Deion Sanders SHOULDVE retired a falcon, never should have let him leave, now you got some folks who want Julio out of here............ ITS ABOUT THIS: SHOULDVE NEVER LET HIM LEAVE ATLANTA:

  5. wouldve been interesting to have dunta line up opposite trufant............
  6. Didnt like the move at first. I was looking at the falcons roster, and decided that either Bowles or Austin would fit the personnel better because of their scheming. I saw it as another falcon blunder. When Quinn said " we want to play faster", that changed my perception of him. What he is saying is they are simplifying the schemes so that the players can REACT and not think too much. Nolan/Smith went down that route already. I say all this to say that if Quinn fails, i think it will be more a result of the front office not getting the TALENT into his system, vs what Quinn himself is gonna do. No matter what system you run, you got to have the players ( which is the reason for my uproar about not getting at least Hardy or a next level edge rusher during free agency). We still need a infusion of talent, but i believe Quinn is gonna use players like Hagemann, Shembo, etc. the way they should be used. I seriously see us going about 8-8 this coming season. Dimitroff/Pioli/Banner have to produce during this draft to get that foundation going because, this is a two year project at most. Again, ive bashed the falcons, but the Quinn move was the right move, now its time to step up their game in the front office or the Quinn hire will not matter. Ive always preferred defenses that can react, vs ones who have to think too much. Aint no time for all that:
  7. same ole falcons. excuses not to be a elite team............this the SAME organization that let deion sanders leave.........
  8. i saw him play. the BEST runningback in the league when he played. a lock hall of famer had he not gotten hurt in practice. imagine a slower version of herschel walker, with possibly more power, and thats william andrews:
  9. now, if atlanta had signed a big time free agent edge rusher like they was suppose to...............
  10. tim tebow won a heisman and a national championship, and was part of another national championship.......he is not in the league, so what makes kroy soo special................
  11. these are the best falcon uniforms. The late 70s, early 80s classic joints: if we HAD to go to black, these are the ones to get:
  12. with the falcons, everybody is used to mediocrity, so, he is right, kroy just fits right in with the norm. there is no accountability for what the falcons do. that new billion dollar stadium they were awarded with, when there is a perfectly good georgia dome sitting there for them to use, is PROOF of that....
