  1. You are welcome. I can see your concerns. I use to be one of those Fans that could see no wrong with our players or strategies. Being a season ticket holder, you kinda got skin in the game. .... . Forget about Tom Brady and the Bucs, D. Brees and the "aints" or even Bridgewater and the Panthers. Let's just look at an aging M.Ryan, Ridley coming off an injury, J. Jones having only 7 gears(used to be 10), Hurst not bad but Hooper a little better, Gurley is better than the recent Freeman but not a 3 down back and may not be very durable. Lastly, you are good with having to resign about half the team if we have success this year. Well your opinion is welcome.
  2. We are in deep CAP trouble. If this current team can not make the play-off. Next year will be the beginning of a total rebuild. And some well knowns will be traded or let go. .... . Just one fan opinion, what's yours.
  3. This is just "POOR" management. If you are letting the player go just do it. Don't let it play out in the media. He is as good as gone now. No need to try to negotiate anything. Don't think that other players around the league will overlook how this is being handled. .... . I'm certain Tampa Bay or Carolina will make him an offer if released. ..... . And no, I'm not saying we should keep him. I'm just saying this is NOT the way to handle this issue.
  4. The truth must be told. This new stadium was just a scam to get soccer to Atlanta. They rode the backs of soooo many loyal football fans. ..... . I was a season ticket holder at the old Dome and got duked into "Club seats" at the NEW stadium. The football experience is the equivalent of watching the "Lawrence Welk show(1955-1982) vs Alabama Crimson Tide in the Iron Bowl". Going to the "Old Dome" was a real football environment. At the new stadium I can honestly say that I have more fun sitting in the lounge. ... . And yes, I tried to sale my PSL dirt cheap with NO takers. AB may know "BIG BOX" stores but that's not football. However I personally don't blame the complete failure on AB. I have followed the Falcons even prior to the "MV" experience and before "MV" I could go to the stadium the day of the game and buy great seats in any location. Those days are back and will NOT get better until "MR" leave.
  5. SOOO WHAT ! The only thing that really counts is. Can he bring home a Super Bowl trophy? So far you have the answer.
  6. All that being said though, what exactly has his tenure in Atlanta produced? In 12 seasons the Falcons are 109-83 in the regular season. That’s really good. However, they have just four playoff wins to show for it. And two of those came in 2016 when they made it to the Super Bowl (and blew the infamous 28-3 lead to the New England Patriots). It just does not really feel like the Falcons are going anywhere with this team. And that includes Ryan at quarterback. However, moving on is hard. Really ! But the stats are HOF ?
  7. Yea, I feel Winston football career is a backup at best. However Hebert or Tua is not the answer. I think "Bridgewater" will be a heavy favorite for Leftwich. And Philip Rivers is next in line. Arians is not building. With receivers like Evans, Godwin and Perriman and a tough defensive line. They just need to add a corner and running back. McKay is not an answer for the Falcons. House cleaning after the 2020 season.
  8. That is my view also. With a new HC and staff. And possibly a new GM the best case scenario is 2 maybe 3 years to turn this mess around. I just can not see MR being that guy. At the end of the day, BUTTS in the seat will make the different. Blank will have to make a positive move after the coming season.
  9. I think so too. Rebuild is rebuild, and Burrows is special. MR is not getting younger and if we get a replacement for Quinn this team is looking at 2 - 3 years to rebuild.
  10. For the most part these players were on a team build and coached by DQ that played in the SB LI. There is NO true leader amongst the players. Julio speaks up sometimes. The NFC championship in 2012 yielded similar results. ... . It's simply time to clean house or face an empty house.
  11. I wish somehow your dumb idea could come true. Julio deserves to have a team with a real QB and a worthy fan base. As long as MR is the starting QB this team will always be an "also ran". ... . Thank goodness horse racings and casinos are on its way to Atlanta. That stadium was build for soccer. I don't see things getting much better for this team anytime soon.
  12. There is not one team in the NFL that give the Falcons a 1st round pick for MR. And his salary has nothing to do with it.
  13. Wow ! I wish I could see the video version of this. You really did your homework. What is NO surprise to me anymore is that Matt Ryan own 6 out of the 10 examples given here. At some point you must call it like it is.
  14. Well said. From what we have seen so far this season the Falcons will have a low pick. Possibly top "5" pick. There are some great QB's coming in this years draft. Let that QB push MR the 1st year. I would love to see another QB throwing to JJ, Hooper, Sanu and Ridley.
