  1. Ive avoided coming here the last 3 weeks, trying to not go off just one game, but after 3 here are the issues I see that give me reason to not be optimistic. 1. Minny beat us running outside. Dont know why philly didnt. But the colts did, and gashed us good. Quinn is dc. This is an issue. He been here long enough that it shouldnt be an issue. If we get gashed again on outside runs, my belief in quinns ability to call defense will be almost gone. Defending the run aint hard. Contain, gap discipline. Proper spacing on outside pursuit. If quinn dont get that fixed...now...it a
  2. I dont know exactly what to blame for that absolute pathetic showing yesterday, but Dan Quinn as the head coach is soley and completely to blame. He is the head coach. Quinn is to blame for SB 51 debacle. Quinn is to blame for Sark and those wasted two years. Quinn is to blame for ket his defense being gashed in the running game, all of which were the same runs outside, no matter which rb was doing the gashing. Quinn is to blame for a offensive gameplan that played right into the vikes hands(Where were the screens and other pass rush beaters?)( Why was Matt early on standing in the pockebreing
  3. Yep. That's why body shots, I.E. The running game, is so vital to success.
  4. Wow...2 straight 4th and goal stuffs. WTF? I understood the first time, but not this time.
  5. My god...the speed #41 showed chasing down the qb. My god....the uga depth at rb.
  6. I believe dline comes ready to eat. Takk and Grady have a sack each. Jones gets an int. Devonte has 2 tds. Falcs 28 Vikes 13
  7. I been harping this point all week, but I will harp again, IMO the falcons dline will feast against the vikes oline, which consists of a rookie center, a new guy at rg, and meh at the other oline spots. They are just now learning the zone blocking scheme, and none of them are over 300 pounds. I dont think they will be able to run the ball on us as penetration kills zone running plays, and judging from the preseason, the dline balled out. I dont think they can block us up.

  9. Dang....small world. I grew up in Winston...Douglas county high class of 85. Went to what was then Carrol tech for electronics. Youngbloodz...your mom aint one of them Pounds is she?
  10. Same here. My old *** has joined team vape. That kingpen dont play.
  11. Hate it for Gono. He played really well this preseason, he will be back though. I aint sweating the Julio deal. It aint been an issue to this point, whatever is happening behind the scenes, history to this point from both sides says Julio will play. Whatever the issue is, it's none of my or anyone elses business. I trust it will be worked out.
  12. Hate that for Gono. He played his *** off this preseason. No matter what, the future looks bright for the falcons oline.
  13. Exactly. Dled dont come off as a dude that likes sports....at all. He comes off as a dude who was put in the sports section because he didnt make the cut to write news stories.
  14. Thanks. Me too because I fear next weeks match up more than this weeks. The eagles do have one of the best olines in the league. Then there is Fletcher Cox. However, we owe both these teams, especially the eagles.
  15. I agree. They have a rookie center, a new rg, and youth at the other spots. And, they are learning the outside zone scheme. They do not have a pro bowl LT and C like the falcons do to offset the youth.
  16. Fair enough. Maybe I am being a little over optimistic. Been a falcon fan a long time, longer than most here been alive though. I dont get excited easy. Im not basing my opinion on paper only, nor amthe only old timer here that holds this opnion. I Do you remember our first year implementing the outside zone? It wasnt pretty early on. Kubiak is awesome. But they have two brand new olineman. They do not have a pro bowl left tackle or all pro center like the falcons do. If I were in their shoes.....I would be sweating bullets wondering who to double team here. They can only double team
  17. Same here. Against the skins he faced and more than held his own against Loannidis and Kerrigan. Sweat got him on a coupla speed rushes until the next drive when Gono rebounded after having been coached up. Those are not scrubs, and I was impressed.
  18. Agreed. Nobis played in a different era than Deion. It was a different game, it was real football without the flash and fancy. It was a running league then, and Nobis was just as or more dominant against the run than Deion was against the pass. Teams had to gameplan around Nobis vs go through him.
  19. Homerish? The vikings interior oline is manned by a rookie and two meh guards, one of which has 3 years experience and the other is new. This aint the eagles oline. And they running outside zone for the first time together. Two new guys, one a rookie, going against Grady and company. What makes you think different? Please enlighten me. Have you watched the dline play this preseason? If they can't block up the interior of the falcon dline, the birds win. I dont think they can. I stand by my post.
  20. Great stuff. What's next in the evolution of the chess match between offenses and defenses? 3 man backfields and the wing T like we ran in high school?
  21. I am lucky enough to have seen Nobis play in person. Even as a young kid, his dominance on the field was obvious and apparent. His off the field accomplishments mirror his on the field ones. He was larger than life, yet humble. He played the game like it should be played, with respect for the game and his opponent. As Csonka is quoted as saying, he would rather have played against Butkus than Nobis. It's long past time for Nobis to be in the HOF.
  22. Dear Pro Football Hall of Fame voters and football fans everywhere, I’m writing you today because it is time to do the right thing. It is time to rightfully acknowledge, appreciate, and celebrate one of the greatest to ever play the game: the late Tommy Nobis. We can – we should – do that by immortalizing Nobis with a bronze bust at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. And here is why I feel so strongly about it. For the past 30-plus years, Nobis was affectionately known as “Mr. Falcon” because he was the first player ever selected by th
