  1. Hard to believe they will be very good. It would be almost impossible to be as terrible as they were the first half of last season, but hopefully we get the average secondary play we got in the last 6 games. If defensive line continues to not generate presser, secondary will get ROASTED!
  2. With the way this defense plays? VODKA!
  3. Just wanted to ask this question. Our defense is absolutely terrible, so turnovers are absolutely on a premium. I haven’t checked the stats, but so believe Kazee had more INTs last season than Rico has had in his career. Why isn’t Kazee playing FS?
  4. Cap sites currently projecting us as over the 2020 cap as currently constructed. Players like Hooper, Campbell, Freeman and Sanu probably won’t be back. Trufant could go as well. You can’t pay everyone, and Falcons ready have massive deals in place for Ryan, Julio, Grady and Jones.
  5. Go look up our 2020 cap space on the Internet. We’re currently over.
  6. I don’t see how anyone could think we beat them. Our sorry defensive line can’t take advantage of their weak offensive line, so we’re giving up 40+ again.
  7. You’re not taking into account that Matt Ryan, Julio, Grady & Deion cap number go up next year. You can’t simply take those resining a away and think you have that money available.
  8. Hooper is turning into a very good player, but the Falcons also won’t have the funds to resign him after this year.
  9. Guy is a complete head case. draft night, his weird social media posts, and the Cali incident, the guy is a headcase. Don’t get me started on talking trash to Steelers and following it up with no showing about 4 games after it.
  10. No it’s not. No one else in the world uses the word urgent in that context. It’s the BS TD and Quinn use because they think it’s new and flashy. You’re not outsmarting the room! Use the english language correctly! I don’t care if it grammatically correct, you still sound like an idiot.
  11. I freaking hate that word. Such a BS answer that has no results.
  12. Chris Cooper .... GOAT is Ray Buchanan. I was shocked I would be considered young for these boards.
  13. Hopefully over paying an underperforming DE and have him skip OTA is one.
  14. Bills once got Shaq Lawson + Reggie Ragland. These message boards could not have been more jealous. We drafted Neal and Jones. Bills are probably rather jealous.
  15. I think Matt had 0% say. I would guess Quinn asked for his feedback on Dirk, and considered it when he made a decision, but MR2 had 0 “say”.
  16. Go find me a single opinion that says Lindstrom is a sure fire Pro-Bowler. I can post 100s of snaps where he gets beaten. At #14, I don’t see the value in picking a guard with that much negative tape. Plenty of game tale and Sr. Bowl tape of him being big. Plenty of tape of him playing well. For a Guard at #14, I would expect more. That’s all. Didnt mean to get in your feels.
  17. You’re completely right. I want it to work out. It’s just hard to see right now. So much of the FA signings were OL, it’s just hard to make sense of it. We didn’t pay Sambrailo, Carpenter or Brown backup money.
  18. This is true, and I also know no one traded up after us. TD also was quoted as saying they considered going back, but decided to stay.
  19. So I have been thinking about how the 1st round turned out ever since last Thursday night. Coming into the draft, I figured there was no way trader Thomas wouldn't make a splash. With the way the Falcons were signing veterans just before draft day, all signs pointed to TD using the draft capital of 9 selection to create impact. It's been reported that TD tried to move to #10. I tend to think this was for Jonah Williams and not Wilkins, but we may never know. The entire offseason has been about protecting Matt Ryan, so it just seems logical. Unable to move up from #14, ill be honest, im not sure anyone was left the fan base would be happy with. Montez Sweat was probably the only player available "experts" could have viewed as a "value". The guy has off the field and medical issues. I wouldn't be shocked if he wasn't off TD's board all together. With that said, moving BACK was the obvious play here. For months everyone was talking about how much value was in the top 3 rounds of the 2019 draft. Move out of no value spot, get more draft capital, seems like an easy decision. TD was already quoted saying they discussed moving back, but ultimately decided to make a selection. When they announced Lindstrom, I wasn't mad, I just didn't see ANY value in the pick. You're drafting the #14 overall pick and the first guard in the entire draft. That player is suppose to be a DOMINATING PLAYER. Everything you read about Lindstrom suggests he should be a "solid pro". He "doesn't do anything great, but also doesn't have a major weakness". It is so underwhelming. Here is where it gets UGLY for me .... Pre-Draft Analysis McGary is a tall, well-built right tackle prospect with short arms, especially for his height. He is a very good run-blocker who gets into position and moves defenders off the ball when he keeps his pads down. He has a quick set and a lot of shock in his hands, but he lunges at times, and his arm length is a concern. Post-Draft Analysis Atlanta isn't messing around when it comes to protecting quarterback Matt Ryan. They trade back into Round 1 here to further bolster a run offense that ranked 25th in rushing yards per game last season. McGary has the skill set to push Ty Sambrailo for the starting job at right tackle as a rookie. -- Steve Muench Folks ..... We gave up our 2nd and 3rd round pick for someone that "has the skill set to push Ty Sambrailo for the starting job". If I am giving up extra picks in the top 3 rounds, the guy WITHOUT A DOUBT is better than Ty Sambrilo. How in the earth do we move back into the 1st round for this guy? You have Taylor, Ford, Risner and Little all available to you for less draft capital in early round 2. This draft literally could have been Andre Dillard, Greedy Williams and Jaylon Ferguson. I'm not ready to move on from TD and DQ, but if we don't have a dominate offensive line or continue to have a TERRIBLE pass rush in 2019, sign me up.
  20. Can’t give more than a C. I’m not saying it doesn’t turn out to be a great draft, I just know I have 0 excitement.
  21. If you have the best player at a position available to you, it’s hard to complain. White, Greedy, Williams ...... They are the best players in the draft at their positions. I wouldn’t complain a bit if we pulled the trigger with that mindset.
  22. Interesting story ..... I did want Lee. No doubt. I had also picked Keanu Neal as the player I hoped would be our 2nd round pick. When the day of the draft rolled around and all of ATL media was reporting Neal was going to be our 1st round pick, I immediately started hoping Jones would be our second round pick. Turned out the Falcons did too.
