  1. Zero percent chance that this is true. You don't spend months evaluating countless college players to say "this guy or bust"
  2. I don't mind tough schedules. The reality is that you must beat the best in order to be the best
  3. Let's hope the 15-1 Panthers exude mediocrity next week against the Seahawks
  4. Matty Ice lives for these moments, we're going out guns blazing and will have our first winning record since 2012
  5. Lets not forget that we were competitive in EVERY game this year, besides the first matchup with the Panthers. The reason we lost those games were because of our offense. It looks like Kyle is really letting Matt take the reigns and Matt is looking more and more comfortable--and that shows. Let's upgrade personnel in the offseason and watch what year 2 brings us
  6. Lmao it's the modern day "Get the f*ck off my field"
  7. You're not stupid. So many "experts" are saying different things. I believe we need to win out and Seattle and Minnesota need to lose out. BUT, I also heard that on top of that, we need 3 of the following 4 teams to win: San Fran, Denver, Carolina, Tennessee.
  8. He played his best game of the season against one of the top defenses in the league. Say what you want about him, but he toughed that game out. The stats don't even say how well he played. The guy was abused the entire game, hurting, and his receivers dropped five passes. Might be unpopular opinion, I say we keep Shanahan but upgrade our offensive line personnel. Mike Person is nothing short of awful, and even though Roddy had a nice game today, we need an upgrade at that position obviously. Let's let Shanahan get more of his personnel and see what Ryan does with a full season under his belt.
  9. Because the high draft picks we had over the past two seasons have really helped us out, right? For ****s sake, cheer for your team no matter what the circumstance
  10. I'd keep Shanahan so he can have a chance to get more personnel. Maybe Desean Jackson? Let's be honest. He isn't the one who cannot block nor is he the receivers who can't get open. I agree that his play calling is head scratching at times. But look at Panthers OC Shula. Panthers fans HATED him. Now he's a potential HC candidate. Give Shanahan another year, but keep him on a short leash if things go bad during next season. Dimitroff has had 8 years to get it together. No pass rush in 8 years and he can't draft offensive linemen to block. We have 0 players remaining from the 2012 draft class. The only reason TD is here is because Matt Ryan won all of those games. That's right, Matt Ryan, the man who everyone wants to get rid of. Give KS another year, get rid of TD.
  11. You're acting as if the high picks we've had over the last two seasons actually made a difference for the team
  12. If he blamed anyone other than himself, we'd have an interim OC right now
  13. http://www.thefalcoholic.com/2015/12/14/10158050/report-atlanta-falcons-may-look-to-replace-gm-thomas-dimitroff-with The Atlanta Falcons are an imperfect football team right now. They've got a lot of problems that can't be remedied by a single solution. But there's a growing sentiment that one thing has to happen: current general manager Thomas Dimitroff must be fired. Firing Sir Spiky Hair is just step one. Step two is hiring his replacement. So where do the Falcons start? It's hard to fix a team that's only won 16 games since 2012. Per CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, the Falcons may look to steal away another Seattle Seahawks rising star. It always seemed like a reworking of player personnel was also coming a year ago, when longtime coach Mike Smith was let go, and the other shoe may be about to drop. If you are following the model of Quinn's former team, the Seahawks, then pair him with a personnel man who shares Quinn's vision. There were rumblings about Seattle exec Trent Kirchner possibly headed to Atlanta since before training camp. It would come as no surprise to me should he end up the Falcons' next GM. Kirchner played quarterback at St. John's before joining the Seahawks' front office in 2000 as a college scouting intern. He bounced around a bit, scouting for the Carolina Panthers for 8 years. He then re-joined the Seahawks' front office, garnering several interviews for various GM vacancies since. The issue with Kirchner is that he's primarily focused on player personnel. He's been in NFL front offices for 15 years though, so I'm sure he's plenty capable. Arthur Blank and company will need to think this decision through. The team needs to remedy its personnel issues. Fast.
  14. I wasn't able to catch the entire game but I know Tru and Alford went down (hopefully they are ok!) Would anyone be able to tell me how Collins played?
  15. You have to go with the hot hand. If Freeman continues playing like he did in his first start today, I can't see the coaching staff handing the job back to Coleman. I'm really happy we have these two on our roster... And congrats to Freeman on such a great game. Rise Up!
  16. If we are being completely honest: Even though Hawley was a fan favorite and most of us really liked him, Stone is more suited for the ZBS and while he is a terrible guard, he is serviceable at center. Last year, he was quite serviceable for us, in a scheme that he wasn't even suited for. Assuming he could only improve in the new scheme and with a year under his belt, why not show some optimism? Everyone acts like the world is crashing down when we release Hawley. With that logic, we might as well declare Stone the best center to ever play the game. But seriously, Hawley wasn't a world beater. We wouldn't have released him if something wasn't up.
  17. http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/13520592/atlanta-falcons-owner-arthur-blank-hire-ceo-oversee-all-businesses-including-team Atlanta Falcons owner and chairman Arthur Blank plans to hire a chief executive officer to oversee all of his for-profit businesses, including the Falcons, he said in a statement released to ESPN.com on Wednesday night. Blank, who turns 73 next month, has a list of businesses that includes the Falcons, MLS Atlanta, PGA Tour Superstore, The Arthur Blank Family Foundation, Mountain Sky Guest Ranch and AMB Group. The multibillionaire is the co-founder of Home Depot, from which he retired in 2001. "I have a strong desire to spend more quality time with my family, which now includes four-going-on-five grandchildren, as well as to concentrate more of my time on our philanthropic endeavors," Blank said. "And while I will always be heavily involved in our business strategies, I now feel that the best role I can play in our businesses is one of founder, chairman and most senior cheerleader, spending less time on the day-to-day management oversight. "I think it's a healthy time for somebody else to take the reins in terms of certain responsibilities within our organization. Our businesses are strong and I'm in good health, which makes this a terrific time to make this move and allow me to be able to back away a bit and start putting check marks on my bucket list." The exact timetable for Blank hiring a CEO remains unclear. "We will be thoughtful and deliberate in filling this position, as finding the right person is more important than finding someone soon," Blank said. "This person needs to pass the cultural fit test, and it's also important to me that he or she is capable of retaining, motivating and developing the teams that we have in place in all of our businesses." Rich McKay is in his fourth year as the president and CEO of the Falcons and has been instrumental in the construction of the $1.4 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which is set to open in 2017. Where McKay will stand in the hierarchy of power following Blank's hiring of the new CEO remains unclear. Last year, McKay signed a four-year contract extension through 2019. McKay currently awaits reinstatement to the NFL's competition committee. He was suspended after the league found former director of marketing Roddy White guilty of illegally piping crowd noise into the Georgia Dome the previous two seasons. "He's not reinstated yet, but he has a meeting shortly with the folks in New York," Blank told ESPN.com. "I've spoken to the commissioner and other folks about it. [McKay] has my support. And the league knows how I feel about it." The news of Blank's intention to hire an all-encompassing CEO was first reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
  18. If we do sign him, I think Yates gets canned. However, I personally don't think we sign him
  19. I heard that Matt Ryan is actually not real, but more of something you believe in like the Polar Express. Can anyone confirm if this is true or not
  20. Posts like this make me want to throw waffles at old people
  21. Ha! That's pretty funny lol. But hey, congratulations!!
  22. I'm going! Just have to buy my tickets. I'm also going to the Falcons vs Giants. The things a NY Falcon fan will do to see his team lol
