    Man. I would be ecstatic if he did. Him Pitts and Ridley. Could be a trio of great receiving threats, with Gage still having room to take steps. As well as the other receivers I suppose.

    If it's been rocky for years, why push for more money instead of freeing himself when he could? He could have easily broke the bank with any team

    Geaux_Falcons reacted to falcons007 in Rebuild or Contend? Tale of a 4-12 and 11-5 Division winner.   
    The saying "You are what your record says in NFL" is true for making playoffs or sitting on the couch. This isn't a coulda, shoulda and woulda post. 
    Falcons had top 3 Strength of Schedule compared to TEN with much easier SOS in 2020. 
    Titans were 11-5 and Falcons were 4-12 teams. But how different are these teams to consider one as rebuilding team and another a contender?
    NFL is game of inches and Handful of Plays:
    Titans were 7-1 in games decided by single score. Titans won 4 of those 7 games with 3 points or less margin. Titans won the 5 non OT games with combined point differential of 14 Points. 
    Falcons lost 4 games with 3 points or less, and lost 8 games with combined point differential of 28 points. 
    The difference between wins and loses were Handful of plays, though Falcons were dumpster fire with HC fired after Week 5. 
    Falcons Offense Vs TEN Offense: 
    Falcons had higher Time of Possession(TOP) than Titans with out a run game. (Falcons : 2:49 Titans 2:43). 
    Falcons and Titans had same number of scoring drives, the difference was in TD scored. Falcons RZ TD % at 53 compared to Titans RZ% at 75%.
    Falcons Defense Vs TEN Defense: 
    Falcons defense was bit better than Titans on per drive basis. Falcons D ranked in low 20s for Pts/Drive,yards/Dr and success. Titans were ranked in the range of 27-30 on per drive stats. 
     
    TLDR:
    NFL is game of inches, the difference in a 11-5 and 4-12 team is handful of plays. The Titans needed an Historically efficient offense to win 7 of those games while Falcons had a dysfunctional team with HC fired after week 5. Winning Hides lot of issues and losing can bring out the worst inside the team. AS and TF had many choices but they must have been thrilled to see a team which is much closer to be a Play off contender than a multi year rebuilding team.

    I mean effectively, Ragone is the QB coach since Smith is the OC. This might be a move for later down the road if we decide to go with a more mobile QB. Having a RB essentially coach RB skills for a mobile QB may prove to be effective since you already have your QB coach in place as mentioned before. This still allows for your RB's to have their own coach and London was also an assistant offensive coach, which he may just simply have a good football mind that you want to include in your game plans. If anything, maybe he gets poached for that later and we get to a couple 3rds.

    McCarron is a pure backup at this point. Franks, although he has his flaws, I thought the kid should've been drafted at least. He's got some things to work on for sure, but he was a 4 star recruit, and the arm strength is there to build on. Some work on his mechanics, and pre snap reads could help mold him into a starter at some point. If he takes his time serious, and makes some waves while studying under Matt, he could possibly be our guy once Matt is gone. Helps even more that he's athletic.

    Well the narrative then changes to, "Well why blow draft capitol to move up, when you can get the QB you need now?".

    Geaux_Falcons got a reaction from Herr Doktor in This is terrifying   
    To be fair, I don't think Blank is going to meddle his way into forcing a QB at 4. Before TF and AS were hired, it was known that whoever is the new coach/GM, would be handling Julio and Ryan's future with the team. So if drafting a QB wasn't a part of the plan at 4 already, then we can probably kiss that goodbye in regards to Blank forcing a QB to be picked.
    The only thing that could make that happen, is if TF/AS have taken a liken to one of the QB's recently, and believe it's a must have player at this juncture.

    How is miami, sf, denver, ne and all the other teams even in the conversation? They use draft capital to move up and get who they want. This whole " but we'll never draft this high again" argument is a farce. If we had the 16th pick and definitively needed a qb do you really think we couldn't do what it takes to get one?

    Yeah, on the one hand, if I thought this was true, I'd be furious.
    But on the other hand, he has said he isn't going to meddle.  I think I have to at least give him a shot to live up to that before I assume he is.  And I'm the "Blank needs to stay out of football decisions" guy who was convinced the whole "fire Sark and Manuel" thing was him, mostly because it looked a WHOLE lot like the whole "fire Mularkey and Van Gorder" thing to me, with similar results.
    I grant that was my own speculation.  I'll assume this is just other people's speculation as well.

    Geaux_Falcons got a reaction from PokerSteve in Cornerbacks Falcons Could Have Interest In AFTER Their #4 Pick   
    Sadly Horn got a late surge, and has risen into top 15 territory. Only way to get him is obviously via trade down. Not the biggest Surtain fan. He'll be a good defender, but I don't think he's the best CB in this draft. If Farley didn't have his medical concerns, He'd be my #1.
    2nd round guys. Samuel got the size for Nickel. Campbell/Stokes could go here, or drop into the 3rd due to the heavy OL class. Kelvin Joseph has the ability if he can ever get consistent.
    After the 2nd, it's up in the air where guys could go. Ifeatu Melifonwu has the tools to be effective. Paulson Adeabo was well regarded last year around this time. I think Tay Gowan is a 2nd round corner, but inexperience could push him into the 3rd or so. Elijah Molden is probably being looked at as more Saftey than nickel CB, but he's versatile, and that will be a big plus for him.
    Later in the draft, you start to look at guys who are more depth than top 2 CB types, but many could rise depending on how they progress.
