  1. A summer of Dynamic Tension will work wonders.
  2. Dan Dakich is Bobby Knight's former assistant. The Hoosiers aren't doing too well this season, so I guess he needs to talk more football.
  3. Ryan and Julio are being paid for the Super Bowl they had won before a short-circuit in the coaching brain trust.
  4. Positive news for the Falcons is rare this year.
  5. That last minute may be the minute that prevents a run to a Super Bowl win.
  6. Dan still has his fans out west. Seattle is only 5-0. Bring him home Pete. https://www.seahawks.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=167168
  7. Dimitroff did draft Peria Jerry from Ole Miss. TD looked everywhere for urgent athleticism.
  8. Dan Quinn has achieved a consistency of results that most coaches fail to ever achieve.
  9. This is the place where our team is #1. http://www.tankathon.com/nfl
  10. Maybe the root of the problem is having a head coach more concerned with embracing the suck than embracing the ball.
  11. Firing Quinn is needed but is not enough. For the good of the progrqm, Blank cannot get involved in hiring the next coach. The team needs a strong GM with experience and stature enough to hire a solid coach and sweep away the Falcon Way of gimmicks since Dan Reeves left. Otherwise, we get the same process that got us the likes of Petrino and Quinn.
  12. Like Pat Pepler in 1976, make Dimitroff coach the team.
  13. Firing Quinn is not getting at the root of the problem. Unless changes are made at the top Quinn's replacement will be more of the same . Mora, Smith and Quinn, the next guy is liable to be worse. Blank needs to fire himself from meddling and influencing foptball descions and the football operations need a new brain trust from Dimitroff on down..
  14. A cornerback? Deion Sanders in his prime couldn't help this team until the pass rush gets fixed.
  15. Aint loss today means the Falcons' 2nd round pick from the Pats for Sanu is going to be 23rd. As far as draft position, that trade is a whole lot better than the 31st or 32nd that looked likely at the time.
  16. I am no expert on comedy, but for pure slapstick it's hard to beat the laughs from this:
  17. I think the Falcons might be helped by a new NFL rule not allowing in-game drug use by the referees.
  18. Here is a quote on the play on the Ringer site: "Adding to the mess—are we sure it touched the ground and not Hooper’s foot? Usually with these types of messy replays, officials will stick with the call on the field, as the rules state. Not this time: The NFL overturned the call, giving the Falcons a third down with five seconds left to try again." https://www.theringer.com/nfl/2019/12/15/21023655/falcons-49ers-wild-finish-nfc-playoff-race Of course what the NFL usually does will not apply to rhe Falcons.
  19. Al Riveron, the NY replay official explains the logic of overturning Hooper's catch: “The ball actually takes him to the ground. This is the one remaining situation where you have two steps, but if you don’t have a football move, you’re going to the ground, you must survive the ground," Riveron told a pool reporter. “In this situation, he takes the ball, it hits the ground and then he loses control of the football when he comes back up. Therefore, it’s an incomplete pass.” ---------------------------- For one thing, it appears the ball hit the shoe, not the ground. And on the next play, if somebody had been on the line blocking the goal line camera on Julio's catch, the Falcons would have been cheated out of a game they should have won.
  20. Logic and fair play suggests that the NFL would not dare do that even if they would like to. But I am reminded of Jerry Tarkanian's quote: "The NCAA is so mad at Kentucky they're going to give Cleveland State another year of probation."
  21. The Patriots apparantly violated league rules by taping the Bengals sidelines. What is the chance the league punishes the Patriots by taking away their second round pick they sent to the Falcons for Sanu so the Falcons, not the Pats, lose the pick. Somebody could get a reward from the commissioner for suggesting this remedy for the NFL's dilemma with regard to misdeeds from their designated dynasty.
