  1. Who was New England's $10-$12 million dollar receiver last year? Seattle's $10-$12 million dollar receiver the year before that when they won the SuperBowl? How about Baltimore the year before that? None of these teams spend that kind of dough on receivers? And guess what? They win Lomabardi's. When was last time Minnesota won one? Dallas? Denver? Detroit? name me any NFL team in last 20 years that won a SuperBowl with a high $$$ receiver? Guess what you can't. Because to win a SuperBowl you have to be COMPLETE team not one sided. You don't put that much money into 2 players and expect to win a SuperBowl cause it WONT HAPPEN. HISTORY DONT LIE.
  2. I love Julio but look at the other teams that have signed these receivers to these big contracts Minnesota, Detroit, Dallas, Denver, none of these teams are going anywhere. And when you have that much money committed to your QB and your WR it means you have to cut in other areas. And we already have a patchwork offensive line and defensive line and linebacking corp. We need the cash. The goal is to win the SuperBowl not have two stars and a bunch of scrubs. It is to build a BALANCED team.
  3. Falcons are making big mistake if they sign Julio to that kind of dough. They have too many holes and WRs are expendable. Plus Julios foot is still a lingering question mark. Falcons need to save that cash and shore up their lines and get them a top notch LB that is a playmaker and not a NFL 2nd stringer.
  4. All those receivers nowhere near what Bey Bey, Dez, and Julio are making or looking to make. And again to pay that much money to a wide receiver is stupid. WR is the easiest position in the NFL to fill and the most expendable. If we pay Julio all that money we are going to have to make it up somewhere else. I say let Julio go and spend the money on the o-line where it would be money well spent. Julio is a injury risk and Detroit/Chicago/Dallas etc.. have all shown just having a big receiver aint going to get you where you need to go. You have to have balance. Defense and running the football wins championships not $10 million a year receivers.
  5. Stupid. Wide Receivers are abundant in the NFL and teams like Green Bay, New England, and Baltimore have won multiple Championships with average wide receivers. Stupid to pay that kind of money when you can put that money towards getting a o-line.
  6. I believe Nolan and Smitty had people in what a lot of people perceive as mismatches to disquise their coverages and stunts to make up for the lack of talent on the field. However after 6 or 7 years Smitty should have had better talent on the field. Now whether this was front offices fault or Smitty's we will find out at the end of this season. Because I have to believe if the Falcons don't win at least 9 games this year those PSLs are going be a hard sell in this town.
  7. Tamme is the best of the worst. Cant see how Tolilo is even on our roster when the season starts he is just turrible.
  8. 1. William Andrews 2. Lynn Cain 3. Jamal Anderson 4. Gerald Riggs 5. Ironhead Heyward
  9. I think the mods have done a good job of letting everyone express their opinions.
  10. If Matt Ryan had anything resembling a defense he would have won at least 2 SuperBowls by now.
  11. To further elabote. The following are Shannahans offenses. In rank based on total yards/touchdowns. 2008- 3rd in total yard/18th in touchdowns 2009- 4th in total yards/9th in touchdowns 2010- 18th in total yards/25th in touchdowns 2011- 16th in total yards/27th in touchdowns 2012- 5th in total yards/5th in touchdowns 2013- 9th in total yards/21st in touchdowns 2014- 23rd in total yards/26th in touchdowns What does this tell you? This dude can not get it done in schemeing in the red zone. The numbers dont lie. Touchdowns win football games not yards. He is in the bottom half of the NFL in 5 of his 7 season in producing TOUCHDOWNS. No one cares if you can run between the 20s.
  12. If he has records like this at other NFL teams what makes any NFL front office think he will do better here? It is the Wade Philips syndrome. Driftwood coaches that continue to find jobs and have the same results. Just my opinion but looking at his past record I dont see a CHAMPIONSHIP OC here. I see a 8 to 9 win OC at best just going on his past numbers.
  13. Dont really see how stating facts could get you suspended. Look at his record as offensive coordinator. Awful.
  14. Shannahan's record: 8-8 Houston Texans 9-7 Houston Texans 5-11 Washington Redskins 6-10 Washington Redskins 10-6 Washington Redskins 3-13 Washington Redskins 7-9 Cleveland Browns This dude is a juggernaut. This dude is garbage and is only in the NFL becasue of his dad.
  15. I dont see how someone who has been fired form three other NFL teams can be considered underrated. I can see how he could be considered driftwood but not underrated. Shannahan has NO record of success anywhere in the NFL and was horrible hire. He is not better than the piece of garbage we just got rid of. ESPN has the worst sports reporters in the nation.
  16. I think it would revolve around agent trying to get him longer term deal. If Giants withdrew long term deal and agent knows he could go somewhere else and get long term deal then I am sure he would jockey to get franchise tag lifed. Like HJerry said in earlier post we will see by Juy 15th.
  17. He was at the franchise tender $14.8 million with the Giants. So we got the room. If the Giants rescind the franchise tag. Which again if they withdrew an offer I am sure his agent will be jockeying with the union on that franchise tag being lifted.
  18. Crimson Falcon are you not violating the Code of Conduct for the Board? -Off-topic material that impedes or otherwise prohibits communication disrupts the dicussion including without limitation using fan names. I am reporting you too. This thing where everyone can just take pot shots at some one on every conversation is over. Goes back to if you dont have anything nice to say............
  19. Maybe I'll just report Return of the Gaucho and HJerry for their Clown Shoes and Idiot responses. Since that was their immediate response to a normal conversation.
  20. JPP has minor burns on three middle fingers and may have some nerve damage on middle finger. But nothing that is considered career ending or threatening.
  21. Anyone who goes to UCSB loses any credibility in any conversation.
  22. PSLs will never work in Atlanta. Atlanta does not have the Oil money that Dallas has, the Political money that Washington has, or the winning tradtions that Pittsburg has. Tennessee tried to do PSLs with the Titans and fell flat on their face. Building a new stadium will not help sell PSLs, Atlanta is too transient of a city to try and sell these. And Falcons do not appear to be in a postion to go on a ten year run like the Braves so I think no matter how you try and paint it. There will be plenty of good seats available in the new stadium in about three years.
  23. Yes JPP has been franchised tagged but in being franchise tagged the Giants have to pay him top dollars the fact they just withdrew an offer from the table tells me there is a distinct and strong possibility they will remove the franchise tag on him as well. The Falcons should step up and pay whatever they need to pay to get this dude if this occcurs. IMPACT player Falcons have been looking for.
  24. Even with half a hand he gives the Falcons some sort of manhood on the defensive line. Instead of a bunch of 3rd stringers and a rookie. Giants just withdrew their contract offer so homeboy is a free agent as of today. Falcons front office needs to get of the mountain bike and get moving.
