  1. I hate to hear that man. It's hard but death comes for us all eventually. At 56 I've lost both parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles. Worse, I've also lost a number of close friends to many things. A massive heart attack got two of my hunting budfies 10 years apart. The best man at my wedding committed suicide 6 years ago. A friend of 35 years lost his battle with liver cancer just 3 months ago. No ... it's not just you. Life can just be hard. But you learn to find joy over time and through the hardships. 

    On the school thing. Dont give up dude. Take a short break, get your head on straight and get back in there.

    This isn't true anymore. This is an old narrative. Our Oline is NOT undersized at all.

    You could argue that Quit Beasley is undersized. One could also say Jarrett is short, but he's not undersized. The rest of our dline is nowhere near undersized.

    I disagree but am at work and just don't have time to look up the Stats. I think I saw somewhere that our Average O-line weight in 2019 is 319lbs which is improved but I think no where near where it needs to be. Quinn has always wanted the D to be lighter and faster.

    I’m not as concerned over obtaining solid players & more picks as much as I am finding gifted coaches.

    The more I watch the NFL, the more obvious it becomes that great coaching propels a team above all.

    The attention to detail, out scheming the opposition, discipline, etc.  It becomes a battle between two staffs strategizing to blunt the other’s strengths & exploit their weaknesses.

    Great coaching earns respect.  It fills in the talent gaps & puts good players in position to win.  Talk is cheap.  We desperately need brilliant coaches or the agony will continue.  

    That is spot on! Adding to that, a great coach would be more objective in who they have and know "where to fill gaps". Mediocre coaches believe their own hype and think player Talent is enough.

    The trenches are undersized on both sides. Every team knows this and literally overpowers everyone on our line. Our D has been a joke for almost a decade and until we have a top 10 D, we are looking at mediocrity for years to come.

  4. Its a shame because there IS so much talent on this team. But its underachieving talent. You would think that the executives for the Falcons would have learned from other teams that have faced the same thing. The Falcons bought into their own hype and thought they were a few moves from a SB when they were actually locking themselves into mediocrity for 4 to 5 years. All too often players get that big contract and the "Will to overachieve" disappears. I knew the year that we went to the SB that we had a 3 to 5 year window to get back in. I'm sad to say that we ended up on the lower end of that spectrum.

    This season is over. The team and the front office knows it. They just don't want to say it out loud. Trading Sanu sends the signal that its rebuild time. Time to offload, get some picks for what you have today. Picks for this coming season and even some picks for 2021. A full rebuild could get the Falcons to a 8 - 8 (or slightly better) year within two seasons and some really good picks could get the Falcons back into the mix in 3 to 4 years.

    I would also get away from the idea that we need smaller faster guys in the trenches. Nope... we gotta beef up on both sides but also get some guys that you could substitute in when you want to run a play where faster guys get you there.
