  1. No offense taken, but at the end of the day Rogers was not playing, regardless of the situation. You can stop with the salary cap stuff, teams seem to be able to make the money work when they really want to. Just to clarify, I am in no way advocating drafting a QB at 4 to sit behind MR, just saying you never know what creative thinking will lead to.
  2. What all those QBs have in common is that they were playing. How long did Rogers sit behind Favre?
  3. Is it really dumb though? Is the 5th year option a reason not to pick a QB and sit him if TF really believes he's the future? (Regardless of what some think, the Falcons are in a situation where they don't have to start a rookie QB). What if TF picks Trey Lance at 4? (I have seen where some think he may be the best QB in the draft eventually.) Now imagine our new OL coach actually does his job and MR puts up all pro numbers for the next couple of years while TL learns the system and develops into an awesome QB. Is that a bad situation to be in?
  4. Thanks. Don't post much. This was actually a response in another post. As soon as I submitted it, I thought "Man this would be a great topic." LOL
  5. I think people are dealing in absolutes too much. "A first round pick should be a season 1 starter." "A top 5 pick should not be a back up." I think this limits your options on what's best for the team. Realistically, the Falcons are in a "win now/rebuild" situation. They literally have to rebuild while winning. This is a concept that cannot be accomplished using absolute thinking, you need to be flexible. You may have to draft a first rounder and sit them. You may draft a late rounder or sign and UDFA and start them. Just look at the Beasley situation. If he had not been a 1st round pick,

  7. Really? He has no control over who's on the field when he plays. He goes out and he performs no matter who's on the field, that's what players do. What bothers me is the fact that the good play against the "scrubs" didn't earn him any time against better competition. Just another strike against the old coaching staff.
  8. Other than quarterbacks, who do you guys think would make a justifiable pick at #4? It seems like most of the suggestions on the board (I probably missed some) get the "he's a good pick, but not at 4, I would trade down." response. Is there anyone y'all would be excited about at 4?
  9. The decision to run the same offense wasn't because Ryan was familiar with it. It was because it was the most prolific offense in Falcon's history. Where numbnuts DQ/TD messed up was letting everyone who had knowledge of the offense walk out the door. No way I would have let Lefluer out of Atlanta. Spent the next two years trying to fit a round peg in a square hole. It blew up in their faces.
  10. Do you ever wonder how good Benkert might be? He's been protected every offseason. The few times he played looked good to me. Of course, I am not an NFL coach.
  11. You guys ever wonder how good Benkert might be? The team's protected him from being poached every offseason. The little play that I have seen from him looked good to me. Of course, I am not an NFL coach.
  12. 3+ quarters of football where he did not allow even a pressure on a day MR2 was running for his life. That's great isn't it? He is a rookie isn't he?
  13. Guys are overreacting to the Oline play, we saw what to Oline was going to look like in our next to last preseason game when we didn't go up against a vanilla defense. They looked terrible and lost. Guys said it was a learning experience. You have to realize that replacing 60% of your starting Oline requires time for them to gel. IIRC some guys were saying it may take up to game 6 to see consistently good line play. What did you expect to see when our Oline's (5 guys playing their 1st NFL game together) first game is against the best defense in the NFL? So step back, take a breath, and chill.
  14. You guys so caught up on writing style didn't notice the actual content of the article. He makes some very good points.
  15. Man, ya'll killing me with "projected rounds." These guys have been scouted all year for how they fit the Falcons scheme. We targeted our guys and we got our guys, period. Anybody outside the team is just giving a generic evaluation of talent. When are you guys gonna get it. Outside of a few picks all these draft experts are wrong every year! But you guys want to give their opinion more credence than a management team that has been essentially killing our most recent drafts.
