  1. I dont trust this front office to draft O-linemen
  2. Do you believe in empty stats? Like today. Ryan was awful in the first half. The Packers got a comfortable lead and went into prevent mode and gave up alot of yardage. We are also DEAD LAST in run yardage. We are usually playing from behind which forces us to abandon the run and turn into a passing only team. I would rather have a 220 yard, 2 td game and a win than a 275 yard game with 3 tds and 2 turnovers and a loss. I think we get so caught up in numbers that we dont even believe what our eyes are telling us. Im not saying he is a bad qb. Just not a QB that i would say can carry us. He has been blessed with weapons his entire career.
  3. Where do you guys get these stats from? Is there some kind of Matt Ryan Apologist Almanac?
  4. Rodgers has been bad this season. He still has a better record than Captain Checkdown. I dont care how many stats you pull out of your ***. Nobody outside of the homers on this board are picking Ryan over Rodgers.......even in a down year
  5. I want TD and DQ gone. Pacifist Falcon Fan: WELL QUINN LED US TO A SUPERBOWL! TD DRAFTED MATT RYAN!!! Well Nick Foles actually WON a Superbowl and he is riding the **** bench. Im sick of the Falcons holding on to ppl for sentimental reasons. I hate moral victories.
  6. Ive been saying this for years. People just throw a bunch of empty stats at you that dont mean much. He came into the NFL at just the right time. Offensive record books will be rewritten every single year. His stats will be meaningless. "YOUNGEST IRISH QB TO THROW FOR OVER 6000 PASSING YARDS WHILE CHEWING GUM" Who cares?
  7. Everytime a Matt Ryan lover defends him its always about stats. Stats sometime don't tell the entire story. Matt has games where he looks great and others where he looks like dog doo-doo. On the games where Matt has WR's make EXCEPTIONAL plays on bad throws, Matt gets the credit. When Matt plays lousy his supporting cast gets ALL of the blame. Just be fair. He had one exceptional season. Other than that he has been Andy Dalton.
  8. Its always interesting to see the general public's perception vs this forums opinion on Matt Ryan. It is night and day. Matt Ryan can do no wrong with some posters here. Its always someone elses fault. As if other QB's have 5 future hall of famers on their OLine at all times. MR has to have perfection to have SUSTAINED high production. Others just make something out of nothing
  9. I think TD has nude pics of Arthur Blank. The Teflon GM. He has been here 12 seasons and the SAME weaknesses still exist.
  10. That stuff that Kirby and Saban do wouldn't fly in the pros. Saban was an failure in Miami. DQ and Pete are players coaches so they have to do some of that catch phrase crap. I mean i get it, its just annoying and i wish it was backed up with better results for my team. At least pete has a **** ring, he can chew gum and prance up the sidelines for another 5 years.
  11. Are we talking about passion or game managing?
  12. I have doubts that 9-7 even gets you in the playoffs. Even if we make it, our defense sucks which means a first round exit
  13. If thats the case, Quinn should have it. He worked under Saban. Pete Carroll is passionate. I dont think passion is something that is passed on like a cold. DQ's fake enthusiasm and cliches are starting to grind my gears. Players tone all of that stuff out after a while, Next Man up, and in Brotherhood blah blah
  14. Who is the actual GM. Someone has to make the final decisions besides our meathead coach
  15. We mostly play them close no matter the record
  16. How many more YEARS of TD do we have. The man had one great draft and a second really good one (with a million former GM's helping him), and he seemingly has a lifetime contract? The only other GMs with longer tenures have RINGS. How many more years should we give the man for the sake of continuity? 20? 30? He has had 11 years to get it right. BTW, not every team that has this "continuity" theme is a success. Look at the Bengals. They are average to poor every year but hey at least they have the same coach! Change is good
  17. I dont think you can start attaching picks to players and NOT count the ones like the ball that Julio literally had to spear a defender like Sean Taylor (RIP). Ryan has alot of balls that our WR's do a good job of "playing DB" on, yet we can never count his INTs because some one else is always to blame. He has bad two game stretch. He has had 3/10 really bad games (Philly, Cle, Dallas).
  18. First of all RIP to the victims. Al Sharpton just stays on people's minds 24/7. I saw plenty of people online not even say RIP to the victims but they are just more concerned with Al and Jesse showing up. 10 people were shot during bible study and their first and foremost thought is "that **** Al he is gonna MAKE it racial" I mean the guy said "im here to kill black people" its already racial! Its so much easier to focus on AL and Jesse rather than the root of the problem. Nobody wants to address the roots, just the branches. See what the root is, and when u kill the root the whole tree dies. Its so much easier to deflect though.
  19. Your making it personal for some reason sir. Condescension and name calling has never been my thing. Be blessed.
  20. You need players that fit your system. He hasn't drafted all future hall of famers recently (save Gronk) but he drafts solid no name players that gel with his team. The bar is so low that TD gets props for drafting starters occasionally. Most of his high round picks (pre Pioli) are no longer even on the team. Compare the so called poor drafts recently of NE and the recent ones of TD (2008-2013 http://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/atl/draft.htm http://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/nwe/draft.htm The Falcons classes from 2008-2012 we only have 8 players remaining that are on the active roster, 4-5 are starters. 3 have been pro bowlers. 5 full drafts! Pitiful.
  21. Yea, its downright awful, he doesn't know what he is doing at all up there. You would think this guy has won multiple Superbowls, and just got a ring last year. Im glad we Falcons fans have our ONE playoff win since 2008 to hang our hats on! We just came off winning 10 games in the last 2 seasons dude. Coach Hoodie is doing something right.
  22. Not many picks that Boy Genius Tommy drafted on his own without Daddy Pioli are still left on the roster. He is making Rich McKay look like Bill Belichick.
  23. Kroy is just the kind of person i feel i can take my kids to see and say "Junior you see number 71 who cant shed a blocker or get to the QB? He is the one leading us to 5 wins this season". I can hold my head high throughout the losses and the 100 dollar tickets because we have upstanding citizens on this team!
  24. Peerless Price can still be converted to Tight End?
  25. The **** are we gonna get some starters? All of the signings so far would be 'depth" for most decent teams in the NFL.
