  1. In all fairness, most draft people had him going in the 2nd round. Shows how dumb NFL teams can be.
  2. Still waiting for the Giants to start their single game tickets sale...as it stands, the seats I want are gonna be $400+ but I don't get many opportunities to see the Falcons play in person so it'll be worth it.
  3. Yea, and if we know that, much of the league must also. Thus Irvin is telling the Seahawks they can't trade him unless it's to Atlanta. Wonder how long this will take to develop
  4. Part of me also wonders if this is something of an admission that he won't fetch as much on the open market as he might've anticipated. He was drafted to be a great pass rusher but just turned into a pretty good linebacker (can rush the passer, but hasn't excelled at it). Seattle has a lot of checks to sign and given that Irvin's output, just makes sense for them to let him go and if he realizes what his realistic future contract could be. Or as BayFalcon said, this is his tactic to avoid a trade to anywhere but Atlanta.
  5. Very true. And most of our LB depth are late round picks/UDFA that have yet to show much. All that said, just know I definitely want to add guys like Irvin to this team -- fit the scheme, great complimentary players, versatile. Let's hope he's as serious about coming to the Falcons as he says he is.
  6. Oh, I wholeheartedly agree that just because we have guys at the position Irvin plays doesn't mean we shouldn't get him (I said I would love to have him), but that our roster & contract situations may be prohibitive in pursuing him relative to what he is seeking in compensation. If he is willing to take a lesser contract to play in Atlanta, I absolutely say go for it. From a personnel standpoint, it makes guys expendable, but have to unfortunately consider cap and financial implications.
  7. So is he saying he will take a "hometown" discount to play in Atlanta? Because that's the only way signing him would really work with the current roster makeup. That said, I would love to have him
  8. Just based on the schedule, this was the same record I predicted. Of course time will tell, but it seems realistic.
  9. These are really cool. Crazy to think a person goes from being able to fit in the helmet to just wearing it on their head.
  10. It's not Harry's fault the FO waited for him to not be on the team before finally drafting a WR, I'll give him that. but the complacency was a major problem marring the Smith-TD regime and HD is basically the posterboy for that.
  11. I will defend most any player readily, but HD simply was the bare minimum of what you want at slot receiver, imo.
  12. Has him listed as 426 for his weight. Probably meant 246
  13. Gotta love that Vic Beasley typo
