  1. I want the line G/C. I know its not popular but as of now Matt is not safe behind a good line. No running back is going to great without a good line. Another thing, we need to develop the line before Matt retires. We don't want a rookie QB with a unsatisfactory line. That time will be here before you know it.
  2. It isn't over until your replacement is an upgrade. But I do think it was cruel the way he was handled.
  3. I pretty much agree with OP. Any HC has to have a goal.....THE Superbowl>>>>of course.....but reality requires the goal to be achievable. With our players turning into less than high caliber players there is no way we can win. You can plan a system to give what you think is a predictable outcome, just to find the other team knows what you are going to do and how to stop it. Which matchup do you like? Anyone we play against knows our weaknesses on offense and defense. We don't scare any team in the NFL. They all hope to play us and get another W in the column.
  4. The simple answer is our talent is over rated........the rest of the league is whipping us in most positions, scoring, defense, special teams. I don't believe I could stand there and get whipped if I was better than the other guy.
  5. I would have to question the character of a player who does not respond to his coach. I would prefer to get rid of the lazy player and keep the coach. Let another team deal with the player who thinks he knows more than the coach. It is not unreasonable for a coach to expect performance from players, like it or not. Other teams see their behavior too. May not come calling next year.
  6. As a long, long time Falcon Fan, I have enjoyed some good times with family and friends.......usually with a few beers. This year is different. My expectations were tempered by monster contracts and a failure to understand how it is possible to make millions a year playing football. Keep in mind my first job at 16 yrs old paid $1.25 an hour....42.72 take home for 40 hours. It changed things for me. Seeing a lack of performance made it even worse. I got excited by the draft. Then again injuries occurred. I got excited about injured players coming back, but to no avail. The season has simply not been enjoyable. I would love to have the old feeling of watching my Falcons fight hard, win or lose. You can't buy respect, you have to earn it. I miss them like an old friend.
  7. Based on what I saw last night.....we will not win.......Bosa was incredible, Coleman running good, reverses that worked, running game doing just fine thank you, creative use of receivers and even special teams doing their job. It was fun to watch.
  8. Matt Ryan pulled us up and has performed like a Hall of Famer in my opinion. Best QB, and one of the best overall players, ever.
  9. Does our mascot have his costume on backwards?
  10. Could be Shanny was our reason for winning, or whatever. I am curious to know when DQ lost his team and why. What coach can deal with a team that ignores you? No communication on the side line....everyone looking down....no one involved in the game.......strange behavior from people that supposed proffesionals.
  11. not sure if I posted this before, but here goes..... The handsome football hero sat across the desk from a GM wanting to bring him to the team. GM says "We think you have a lot of potential and want you to come grow with our team" Hero says" OK, so far you have not mentioned money." GM says " Oh, not a problem, we will definitely pay you what you are worth". Hero gets up and angrily says "Ain't no way I can live off that"..........
  12. I think any new coach should think long and hard before coming to ATL. If we have talented players, great coaches and (I believe) dedicated ownership, why are we losing? Are players not motivated? Are we outcoached? What if its the dreaded "culture" word. The Falcons have a losing culture. Deeply instilled, acquired over time. It usually takes a massive personnel correction to get rid of the bad culture and then try to develop a new culture, more in line with goals. It also takes a lot of time. Years in Football time. I suggest we keep what we have and FIX IT NOW. I am sure there are football experts that can point out our failures. I don't care if its in the locker room, on the field, coaches, water boy, whoever. Get on the train now or you will not have a ticket next year.
  13. the pants say yoga.....the butt says Krispy Kreme
  14. So I ask you, if our talent is so good, why are they getting beat on Sundays.
  15. I would venture Mr. Blank is looking for some ROI this morning.
