  1. Michael Vick, one of my earliest football memories was his run against the Vikings. Magical stuff. Lol Honorable mention Marshall Faulk ppl don’t talk about him a lot nowadays but he was a beast.
  2. Not only does the lack of discipline reflect bad on Quinn, I think it’s a indictment on TD as well. Ultimately the players are the once who have to be disciplined and execute, no matter how much a coach edifies and inspires at the end of the day it’s up to the players to play. With that being said personnel decisions have to be put under scrutiny, they supposedly draft and sign high character, high intellect guys but it rarely shows up on tape. So maybe they need to take a strong look at how they evaluate as well
  3. Wow, so much for our rebuilt line..
  4. The real issue that most are refusing to admit is the lack of attention to detail and the mantra “preseason isn’t important” has consistently hurt this team and prevented them from getting off to fast starts. Mental mistakes, lack of rhythm lack of intensity are all signs of a team that just isn’t prepared to play. This is a team who carries itself as if it’s already won a super bowl, thinking that their talent will just overwhelm teams so attention to detail is unimportant. That’s a reflection of the leadership in the locker room and it’s inexcusable
  5. Defense still soft, this is shaping up to be a bad day
  6. Yeah this isn’t looking good, doesn’t seem to be any protection. No sense of urgency, we may get blown out of the water today
  7. Team doesn’t seem prepared. Missed assignment on the blitz, blocked punt. Basic execution
  8. I’m happy for Andrew playing in the NFL you can’t be halfway in and if his heart was saying he needed to leave the game then that’s what he should do. I heard he has a child on the way and I’m sure with all the injuries he’s endured throughout his career it must have crept into his head that he wanted to be as healthy as possible for his family. I hope he has a prosperous post career, I really enjoyed watching him play, he was one of my favs Side note about my number one favorite player, Matt Ryan, he’s amazing and my appreciation for him and what he’s done for this city and team grows by the day. Here’s a guy who doesn’t miss time, was blessed with the physicality and willpower to withstand punishment, he’s grinded through bad o-lines, bad defenses, playoff losses which included the toughest SB loss anyone has ever suffered but no matter what he always, ALWAYS gets up off the mat, Matt is just made of the right stuff.
  9. 10-6 to 12-4, I don't see us not winning double digit games this season, I say up to 12 wins because I'm sure they'll be a couple that could go either way during the season, closing those games will be the difference between 10 wins and wildcard birth and 12 wins with a first round bye.
  10. I actually didn't, I gist was that there's a difference between playing fast and playing out of control. The article says there's a clear difference between play speed and raw athletic ability. Alford has raw athletic ability for sure, I agree with the article that there's a difference between play speed and raw athletic ability, I disagree that Alford has good play speed, because he uses his athletic ability but wasn't cerebral or had the cognition skills needed to not get beat on a consistent basis or to avoid costly errors. Actually read my full post next time friend.
  11. I did, the article compliments his play speed, its important to play fast sure, but when you're playing so fast that you're making mental errors at important points in the game, it offsets any good you've done. How many times has Alford bailed a team out in the redzone or on a third down? Where was he "combining mental triggers and physical attributes" then?
  12. This post hyped me up, . The front office did a good job of revamping the offensive line which was a major weakness for us last season. The offensive line will be the X Factor this season, because one thing is for certain when you give Matt Ryan time he's too good. We saw it in 2016, when you give him a clean pocket he'll carve any team up. With these weapons, Hooper, Freeman, Julio, Ridley and Sanu we'd be virtually unstoppable and with the defense being healthy another SB birth would be in reach. I'm excited.
  13. Is this a joke? This is a joke right... Only thing Robert Alford combines well is PI and Defensive holding..at pivotal points in the game. So glad he's gone.
  14. Matt Ryan is and has been the most underrated QB in the NFL for a long time. Saying "oh he has Julio" is a lazy argument. But how about the media darling that is Aaron Rodgers, I think the guy is supremely gifted but he had Jordy Nelson & Devonte Adams ( Not saying either is Julio) but they are very very good players and gave him elite production for years. Not to mention Aaron has played in the same system for basically his whole career. Ryan on the other hand has adapted to so many different OC's and systems while still maintaining elite production. He's played behind terrible O-Lines for the majority of his career, and the one time he did have a good line he made it to a Super Bowl. Not once has he played with an elite defense either. He understands the cerebral aspects of the game, he's deadly accurate and despite taking a pounding he's never injured. Even his down year in 2017 wasn't really a down year, a lot of his interceptions happened because the weapons he so religiously get penalized for having dropped and tipped their way into a lot on INTs. Put some respect on his name.
  15. I can see Ridley taking a big step forward this season, to have him and Julio balling on the outside will only free up Sanu and Hooper more in the intermediate passing game. This offense could be really scary.
