  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. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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............

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
