  1. It will be a virtual draft!!! Cut all the nonsense and extra nuances, and you can get this draft done in one day. No need for 3 days!!!
  2. No Billy Boy coaching Brady... At the end of the day, we have had Bucs number for the last few years. Don’t expect Brady having similar success like he had in New England. The draft still around the corner and the free agency just started. Some of you just go Into this hyperbole outcries that don’t make sense. Everyone has zero wins so far, and no one knows how the season is going to finish.
  3. If that is the case, the Falcons could franchise tag Hooper and then workout a deal. If not, then trade him to another team for some picks.
  4. Paying Hooper is not a big huge deal because the CAP can be so manipulated. Hooper has a great chemistry with Matt Ryan and he is a hard working guy. You cannot replace players like him who are great team players and great fit for the system. If Matty Ice and the Falcons want him back badly, it will get done. Matty is a big advocate for Hooper- he is going to lobby indirectly to keep him. Restructure Julio and cut Freeman, you are good. If Neal could be cut, then go for it. Restructure Mack contract and maybe Tru....
  5. I can say logically speaking that Neal’s contract will be tweaked... can they also do a settlement for injuries even with the 5th year option in-play? I don’t know that answer... Neal is not worth $6.5 million at this moment, and he has no leverage in the market. It sucks for him, but it is life. He can still make $2-3 million and let him show that he can play without any injuries.
  6. Rework Neal’s 5th year option. He is not worth that amount after 2 major injuries. They should give him a new contract with 2-3 year option based on incentives around how many games played. His market value is about $2-3 million at this moment due to Two major injuries with 2 seasons. He hasn’t played for almost 2 seasons with injuries happening in the beginning of each season. Get him a base contract around $3 million with incentives. He has no open leverage in the open market. This will also give them so cap relieve. Tru’s contract and Julio’s contract can be tweaked and lowering Cap space. Alex Mack will be modified because the cap hit is too high for a player of his age. They can extend him for 2 seasons lowering his cap hit. The Falcons have ways to create space and I’m not really worried about it— they just have to get creative.
  7. He is always injuried— time for him to retire. I would rather have a young TE, than a veteran that misses a few games each season.
  8. You just created more holes for the team. You cannot just replace players via draft—drafts are no guarantees and it is a big time gambling. If you can keep certain veterans on your team, then you find a way to keep them. Im telling you the Cap thing is an imaginary boundary that can be tweaked and manipulated. TD himself said it that they should be okey, but with a few challenges on the roster.
  9. Mack is too important to cut him. They need him him and he is still good. 2021 will be dealt when it becomes an issue a year from now.
  10. Here is my brief take on what will happen with some of main players. I don’t see Cap being an issue when you can manipulate the cap in many ways... Restructures: Alex Mack: This is a no-brainer and he will be retained. We will extend him for 1 or 2 years bringing his cap hit to about $3-4 mil. He will get a signing bonus. He is too important for the line and he is still a top 5 center. He is a leader and a mentor for the OL. He is the anchor of that OL. Hooper: He is too important for the Falcons and Matty Ice. They have worked too hard to just finish the relationship. He is Matty’s 3rd main target and an important asset for the vertical game. We lost Sanu, and Hooper became even more important. They will sign him for 4-5 years and keep his cap hit lower the first 2-3 season. Trufant: He plays an important position and he has been solid when healthy. He will be extended to lower his cap hit. The dead money associated with his contract is too much to just cut him. This also makes trading him much harder. As a business decision and as a player, it doesn’t make sense to cut him. He will be kept. I expect his cap hit will be lowered to about 4-5 mil this year and with slight increases for the upcoming seasons. He will be extended for 1 or 2 more seasons where you could cut him in 2 years without a lot of dead money. Julio Jones new contract could be tweaked and adding more cap relieve this year. They have the flexibility to get some cap relieve. Deion Jones: They could restructure his contract to get some cap relieve. This will allow the Falcons to keep Neal. This is another no-brainer and will get the Falcons another 2-3 mil in cap relieve. Freeman: He will be either traded or cut. He is not the same player, but he is still serviceable. He is a decent player who could help a team that needs a veteran RB that can be effective when healthy. Vic Beasley: They could bring him back with an incentive contract. His base salary could be around 5-6 million, but with incentives for performance. They could sign him for 2-3 years and still cut him without much dead money. He knows the system and Quinn has spent a lot of his time grooming the player. He is a good situational player and someone wants to stay here. He became more effective when they defense made adjustments after the bye week. Otherwise, he will be playing somewhere else. Neal: This is a little bit complicated and an unfortunate situation. But, Neal is a player that the Falcons desire. They could keep him and even sign him with a new contract that lowers his $6 million cap hit for the 5th year option. They could lower his cap hit by another 2-3 million. Neal knows that he has no leverage due to his injuries, but he is a good player and a leader. They will monitor his progress and make a decision. But, I doubt they will just let him walk because he is good when healthy. The Falcons could keep him here for much longer with a cap friendly contract for another 4-5 years. OL: We could see 2-3 cuts here to bring additional cap relieve, but with some dead money. They could draft one OL via the draft and one via free agency. With all of these restructures, extensions or cuts, the Falcons could easily add cap relieve and keep the core intact. Hooper will be kept and it is not even that complicated. We will make some additional cuts around secondary players. Campbell could be added back with a very affordable contract and Clayborn as well. Those contracts are affordable and makes sense. The draft should give the Falcons at least 3-4 players who could be part of the active roster and filling important holes on the roster. Thomas is very good as a GM in keeping the core players and tweaking the contracts. I see the Falcons getting very creative this season.
  11. Mack will be back and he is very important. He will be restructured and extended- meaning he will play for 2 more years before he retires. They could extend him for 2 years as well and really reduce his Cap to about 3-4 million. Im not worried about Mack and his contract.
  12. #WhoChoked!!! #WhoGotBreezed... lol Fabreeze needs to retire!!!
  13. A’aints lost again, Fabreeze got breezed!!! The A’aints could go for a major fallout next season with catastrophic losses in the playoffs for 3 years in a row. Aaints should never make fun of Falcons loss in SuperBowl— they have choked in 3 playoffs.
  14. Because Matt was under constant pressure from the front 4 of Tampa bay and they couldn’t convert on 4th down twice. Matt moved the chains when he had to and threw over 300+ yards to get the field goals. The Redzone issues were amplified by OL not protecting Matt all the time and the pocket kept collapsing. It doesn’t matter, they won the game at Tampa who has been playing well in the last 8 games to go almost 8-8. You have to find a way to win. The defense did it’s part and the offense was efficient enough to tie the game.
  15. Changing coaches is not a good thing!!! Many fans think that by recycling OC, we will achieve more success. The biggest problem area were defense, penalties and OL. What happened towards the end of the season? Everything started to trend in the right direction. The OL issues will be addressed once our two rookies get more reps together and we fix the couple of holes. I do see Mack coming back with an extension and less Cap hit— he is needed and he is still a good player. Freeman looks like he will be cut and the team will focus on their young RBs to take the lead. Tru is a big question mark with that big dead cap money... Trade him if you can, or cut him, or restructure his contract to bring his cap down and extend him for one more year.
