    CMarinoNFL got a reaction from JDaveG in Falcons HC Arthur Smith on why he drafted Kyle Pitts   
    Really good interview and thanks for sharing that. 
     
    Arthur mentioning the Andy Reid tree and the Mahomes trade up as well as the Falcons drafting Matt with Todd McClure, TG and Roddy White in place makes me think that he wants to build the foundation before drafting a QB and doesn't believe a formidable foundation is in place currently. "We believe in our strategy"
    Just by the comments I'm hearing.. sounds like the Falcons have a plan built around making the OL strong. In 2015, according to FO analytics, the Chiefs had the 5th ranked OL per OL DVOA. Two years later, in 2017, they moved up for Mahomes. Needless to say that they had strong offensive weapons in place already.
    In 2020, the Falcons were ranked 26th as far as OL DVOA. It adds up. The foundation was built more towards a quarterback getting eaten alive.
     
    BUT.. in 2007, before they drafted MR2, they had the worst OL DVOA in the league, so idk. 17th ranked two years prior to his selection in 2008.
     
    Who's on the OL hot seat?
    LT: Matthews... as safe as it gets
    LG: wide open
    C; wide open
    RG: Lindstrom... as safe as it gets
    RT: McGary... room temp
     
    Just my 2c. Feel free to butcher my takes 🙂

    No doubt....they are not going to just give him away.
     
    One guy who may be interesting if we could make the numbers work is Foles.
    He has experience with some of the staff here and he is going to be the odd man out in Chicago.

    CMarinoNFL got a reaction from PokerSteve in Cornerbacks Falcons Could Have Interest In AFTER Their #4 Pick   
    Ive done quite a bit of research on CB connections to Falcons staff because I think connections this year are going to be huge. Some mid-round guys with connections:
    Shakur Brown (4), Michigan State: Jon Hoke, our DBs coach worked with Mel Tucker in 2013 with the Bears when Tucker was the DC and Hoke was DB coach. Tucker is now the MSU head coach and speaks highly of Shak. (Interviews on google by searching "Mel Tucker Shakur Brown"
    Shaun Wade (3), Ohio State: Dean Pees hired Kerry Coombs as his DB coach in 2018 for TEN. Coombs is now at OSU as their DC. Wade is a *solid* OCB.
    Ifeatu Melifonwu (1.9/2), Syracuse: Pees was highly interested in his older brother a couple years ago in his first year as Titans DC. Also, a less-important and lowkey stretch is that Syracuse defensive quality control coach Bryan Shepherd played for WashingtonFootball when current Falcons Vice President of player personnel, Kyle Smith was a regional Southeast scout and likely briefly scouted Shep as a CB at Nebraska-Omaha.
    Obviously connections arent the end-all-be-all, but its certainly interesting to see how much they rely on certain connections.

    CMarinoNFL got a reaction from papachaz in Flipside: Lance over Fields   
    Fields is going 3 imho. A high ranking coach from NDSU told me that "the GM and HC certainly seemed like they liked him (Lance)" at his pro. Definitely some interesting dots being connected. I think the draft falls:
    Jags: Lawrence
    Jets: Wilson
    49ers: Fields
    Falcons: Lance
    Bengals: Chase
    Falcons are in too good of a position to pass up on a QB. Bad bet to pass on one and say you'll get one later. Never the right move. Adding Pitts doesnt move the needle for us. Darren Waller was a 6th rounder. Kelce was a third. Kittle a fifth. Gronk, a second. Waller didn't move the needle for the Raiders despite being elite in his own right. Neither did Kittle. 6-10 with a lackadaisical QB but a stud weapon. Regression is regression and having a regressive QB defeats the purpose of adding weapons. Weapons can only get you so far if you cant support THEM. Lance makes sense for us from a pro-ready/offensive similarity standpoint where his playcaller has been on NFL rosters before. Team clearly likes him and his fit in Arthur's scheme. The truth is simple: The Falcons will have a ton of talent with Pitts on roster and will have a ton of talent without him. They need a hybrid-flex TE, but other than that, I question Pitts' opportunity in the system. Him being the replacement for Julio is DUMB. He'll be an injury machine if thats the case. Think they settle with Lance who fits to a T and add a guy like Hunter Long in early day 3..

    What's generic is comparing every old QB to Brady (the best ever)
    It's like comparing young guys w/ Mahomes. The logic is the same.
    A QB with lacking arm strength and consequentially poor decision making doesn't scream to me somebody who's guaranteed a job for the next 2 years.

    Gladly. Beyond intermediates, Matt typically struggled to not only lead his receivers, but even reach their hip levels on balls. Dude even struggled in intermediates at time. Watch the LAC game. The duck on a 15 yard out to Ridley was a regressive throw. His arm velo has depreciated like crazy. IDK how it's even possible, but his decision making has gotten worse. Too many foolish decisions cost games (see LAC again).
