  1. Our salary cap problems hurt our leverage with the league knowing we needed to trade Julio or make other some kind of undesirable move. Drafting another WR would have made it even tougher to get value in a JJ trade.
  2. Jesse Tuggle played for my high school, Griffin High. Willie Gault was also from there. In high school, we would send Willie on a fly pattern and the QBs job was just to throw it as far as he could for Willie to go get it. Willie played for the Bears and was on the Olympic relay team, but didn't get to compete because we boycotted the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow. Willie's sister was in my grade. I was told she was fast, but thought "no way a girl is going to beat me" when we were paired off to do a 45 yard sprint in P.E. class. But she did beat me. Bad.
  3. The problem is this tanks his trade value. We NEED to trade him now because of this, and other teams know it. So, if he wanted to force a trade, he probably gets his wish, but it doesn't mean it's a good trade for us or for him.
  4. Why not Ja'Marr Chase AND Jalen Waddle for Julio? If you are going to propose something that will never happen, go big.
  5. Also, having to extend Ryan to create cap space when he is the biggest cap hit on the books. Maybe we even take a QB at 4 if we have the space... The OP is dead on. We are paying now for stupid moves made under the last regime.
  6. It's nice to see the high grades. Hopefully, we'll exceed these, but it's hard to know. I did enjoy watching Kiper's "best available" sit there untouched pick after pick after pick in the middle rounds. These prognosticators aren't all that.
  7. You will never get that kind of trade for Julio, not because of Julio, but because of the cap situation we are under (and the rest of the league knows we are under). The dead money you are talking about belongs to the TD/DQ era and all the fans who thought that funding "the Brotherhood" was the way to go. Now, this regime is forced to pay the bill and effectively forfeit a couple of seasons because we weren't smart when we re-upped Ryan and Julio, not to mention Freeman, Neal, Beasley, Trufant, etc. Right now, we have only $1 million in cap space and still have to sign our draft class.
  8. Two problems I have with this thread: (1) This original post is incorrect. Matt Ryan had the most completions in 2019 and 2020, but not the most in 2018 (Roethlisberger), 2017 (Brees), 2016 (Brees), 2015 (Rivers), 2014 (Brees), 2013 (Manning) or 2012 (Stafford). Your info is wrong, but maybe you have a career in network news... (2) This isn't any of those years. This is 2021, and Ryan has taken a pounding over the last 12 years (especially for a QB not known to be a scrambler). We eventually will need his replacement. If our front office believes we can get the right guy this ye
  9. I would be surprised if TF and AS were not in agreement as to their choice, and even more surprised if they let it out that they were not in disagreement...unless they wanted to create a smoke screen. For what it's worth, I hope they can trade back and get more picks, but you need to have a trading partner to do that. On the other hand, at 4, you are going to have BPA and almost every position - you just have to make the right pick.
  10. There's always a lot of smoke on who team's really want in the draft because they hope other teams will make them an offer they can't refuse AND they still get their first choice, but, for what it's worth, it is bring reported that Terry Fontenot and Arthur Smith now are agreed on who they want. https://heavy.com/sports/atlanta-falcons/falcons-head-coach-general-manager-aligned-on-first-round-pick/?fbclid=IwAR1KVy8KEmDwd4Onx9sov212MLEQr6lSFdlhmPEwqWPG61WdfAG9qxB9vMU On Wednesday Chris Mortensen of ESPN reported that Atlanta Falcons head coach Arthur Smith and general manager Terry Fo
  11. I don't think the Saints would have beaten Green Bay.
