  1. Didn't you say that about him before or was it somebody else that said the exact same thing? Seem to be trending.
  2. Title is ambiguous. If you like them, good list. If you don't like them, bad list. Matt Ryan doing what he does best... Dan Quinn doing what he does best... New Orleans Saints doing what they do best... Tampa Bay Buccaneers doing what they do best...
  3. "I'll NEVER understand why the Cowboys have jock riders every off season. They have not done anything worthwhile in DECADES!!!! Their playoff record is one of the worst in the league since the 1990's. They have only won 4 playoff games since 1995 (25 years) and not advanced past the Division Playoff game since then either. That is Bengals and Browns level futility in the playoffs during that time." -MAD597
  4. Replace Deion with Humphrey, Tuggle, Van Note or Roddy.
  5. Atlanta Falcons' all-time Mount Rushmore: 4 best players in franchise history By Daniel Canova | Fox News Facebook Twitter Flipboard Comments Print Email Jim Gray on NFL releasing 2020 schedule The National Football League is releasing the 2020 season schedule amid the coronavirus pandemic; Fox News sports contributor Jim Gray tells ‘America’s Newsroom’ what we can expect. The Atlanta Falcons joined the NFL in 1965 as an expansion team. During their existence, the Falcons have appeared in two Super Bowls. The first came back in 1998 during Super Bowl XXXIII when they fell to John Elway and the Denver Broncos, and most recently, 2016 NFL MVP quarterback Matt Ryan led the Falcons into Super Bowl LI against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, where they fell 34-28 in overtime, despite leading 28-3 late in the third quarter. Atlanta has had some Hall of Fame-worthy players since its inception, but who would make a Mount Rushmore of Falcons players? Take a look at the list below. CLICK HERE FOR MORE NFL COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM DEION SANDERS Deion Sanders is arguably the greatest cornerback in NFL history. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images) Deion Sanders, nicknamed "Prime Time," was the No. 5 overall pick in the 1989 NFL Draft by the Falcons. Sanders, who spent five seasons with Atlanta, was a three-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro selection as a cornerback, and a first-team All-Pro honoree as a kick returner with the team. During his time with the Falcons, Sanders had 24 interceptions, which included a career-high seven INTs in 1993, and three were returned for touchdowns. Sanders also had success elsewhere when he played for the San Francisco 49ers (1994) and Dallas Cowboys (1995-1999). Sanders, the 1994 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, was a two-time Super Bowl champion and is a member of the NFL 1990s All-Decade first-team as both a cornerback and punt returner. MATT RYAN Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was the 2016 NFL MVP. (Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports) Matt Ryan, the best quarterback in the history of the franchise, was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. In 2016, Ryan was a first-team All-Pro selection and was awarded the NFL MVP when he threw for 4,944 yards, an NFL record 9.3 passing yards per attempt, 38 touchdowns and a career-low seven interceptions. Ryan has four Pro Bowls under his belt, and he is the Falcons' leader in quarterback wins (109), completions (3,630), passing yards (38,568), passing touchdowns (244), and passer rating (93.7). In 2020, Ryan will enter his 13th season under center for the Falcons. JULIO JONES Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images) Julio Jones, one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, has already cemented himself as the best at the position in the franchise's history. Jones was the No. 6 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, and in nine seasons, he is a seven-time Pro Bowler, two-time first-team All-Pro, and three-time second-team All-Pro selection. In 2015, Jones led the league with 136 receptions and 1,871 yards. He also led the NFL with 1,677 receiving yards in 2018, and his 96.2 receiving yards per game average for his career is the best in league history. Since entering the NFL, Jones has more receiving yards than any other player at the position. TOMMY NOBIS Falcons all-time great linebacker Tommy Nobis was a member of the NFL 1960s All-Decade team. (Photo by Bob Verlin/Getty Images) Tommy Nobis, the No. 1 overall pick in the 1966 NFL Draft, became the first player drafted by the Falcons when they entered the league as an expansion franchise. Also known as "Mr. Falcon," Nobis spent 11 seasons with Atlanta. In 1966, he was honored as the NFL's Rookie of the Year and was voted to his first Pro Bowl. He finished that season with 294 combined tackles, which is the team's all-time single-season record, and it's unofficially the most tackles credited to one player in NFL history. From 1994 to 2001 tackles were statistically recorded, but it didn't become an official stat until 2001. Nobis was a five-time Pro Bowler, first-team All-Pro selection in 1967, and second-team All-Pro choice in 1968. Nobis was a member of the NFL's 1960s All-Decade team. The Falcons retired his No. 60 jersey, and he is a member of the franchise's Ring of Honor. The only honor missing from his resume is "Pro Football Hall of Famer," but the Falcons recently put out a letter making a case for his candidacy. Dan Canova is a Sports Reporter for Fox News.

  6. Dude, that was so intoxicating to watch. Knowing we have only added to that offense is insane.

  8. Man, your avatar pic is perfect. Don't change it.
  9. And? I'm not afraid to have confidence in someone and possibly be wrong about them. How about you? Or do you get people right 100% of the time?
  10. That what I think I'm struggling with the most. This guy got hurt in college right? Came into the league and freaking BEASTED! Then, for some reason, his team cut his carries. When he did carry...BEAST! So, to your statement "established player in the league", I'm tripping on how he's being handled by folks. Like he a journeyman back who had a good season. Like he Peyton Hillis or some ****. Like he Devonte' Freeman or some ****. This is Todd Gurley!!!
  11. Best part of the article right here: "Luckily for Atlanta, the Cowboys have a track record of playing down to their competition."
  12. I was blown away at the how well thought out and punctuated this blog is. Makes me wanna call up this fine *** chick I know who's into tarot cards, crystals and star signs. Ask her if she wanna show me what the cards say about the Falcons......"and chill". You know whutum sayin!!! Strange times my friends!! To me, in a good way. But for real though, read this. It's pretty OK. Cover 9@9: A look at last year’s mandatory minicamp
  13. How do the Atlanta Falcons match up against Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys? Brady Pfister 18 hours ago It's hard to find a more talented team in the NFL than the Dallas Cowboys. Dak Prescott is on the cusp of becoming the highest paid quarterback in football. Ezekiel Elliott just may be the best running back in the NFL playing behind an incredible offensive line. That's not even mentioning wide receiver Amari Cooper, linebacker Jaylon Smith and rookie phenom CeeDee Lamb. To put it plainly, the Cowboys are stacked, but, like the Falcons, haven't been able to break through even though plenty of necessary pieces are in place for a deep playoff run. Despite an impressive amount of ability on both sides of the football, Dallas missed the playoffs in 2019, finishing 8-8 while the Eagles won the NFC East and moved on to the playoffs out of the division. The Falcons have top-tier players all over the field, but finished 7-9 the past two seasons. When the Falcons and Cowboys clash Week 2 at AT&T Stadium, the two most disappointing football teams from the past couple of years will be duking it out to get their franchises back on track. A season ago, the Cowboys boasted the most explosive offense in football, averaging an NFL-best 431 total yards per game while putting up just over 27 points on average. Behind the likes of Prescott, Elliott and Cooper, Dallas shredded opposing defenses in a variety of ways. Prescott ranked second in the league with 4,902 passing yards while Elliott finished fourth in the league with over 1,300 yards on the ground. On the defensive side of the football, the Cowboys finished ninth in the NFL, allowing just 327 total yards per game while keeping opposing offenses to just over 20 points per contest. Though Dallas clearly underachieved a year ago, the Cowboys return a team that has shown few defined weak links and the ability to win any sort of game. Against Atlanta, they will likely choose to lean more on the arm of Prescott than the legs of Elliott to test the unproven Falcons' secondary. Atlanta, unlike Dallas, struggled on defense in 2019, specifically against the pass, allowing just under 250 passing yards per game. The team's top corner, Desmond Trufant, is now gone, leaving man coverage duties to Kendall Sheffield, Isaiah Oliver and rookie A.J. Terrell. The Falcons' most questionable position group will be tasked with shutting down one of the most potent aerial attacks from 2019, meaning Dallas will likely be favored heading into this game. With a schedule featuring double headers against the Saints and Buccaneers along with a trip to Kansas City in the back part of the Falcons' 2020 schedule, stealing an early season road game would significantly assist the prospect of earning a postseason berth. Luckily for Atlanta, the Cowboys have a track record of playing down to their competition. Sports Illustrated
  14. Everything you listed got us to the SuperBpowl in 1998 and 2016. In fact, it’s the same things that get every team to the SuperBowl that go.
  15. Understood. Sorry. On TATF, I try to steer clear of religion, politics and X’s & O’s.
  16. Backed into a corner!? I simply asked a yes or no question. He can expound on the issue as much as he likes. No harm in that at all. Also, you have every freedom to interpret whatever you want from his explanation. I still never got him to give a 1 syllabled answer. But, in the end, you're both smarter than me in this instance. I have to remember the times we are living in. People use turn signals as a demand, not as a request. Why? Because they drive based on how they feel. Not how the rules of the road are laid out. I wanna get over in your lane and my turn signal says so. It's whole new world my friend. Plaese be patient with me while i try to catch up.
  17. Because it's a whole new season. Because I'm a fan of the team and I enjoy cheering for their success. Because I'm not pulling for the team I like to fail. Because we have new players up front and in back. Because we are healthy and due to the massive injury hits we took in the last 2 seasons, odds are in our favor that it won't happen 3 years in a row. Because"Rise Up". Because I will also hijack a post too!!!
