  1. smith considered top 5 blocking te in nfl He is huge
  2. Gono! Proud of him!! He once told me he was never worried about ever making an NFL team. He knew he would if given the chance. This year, I encouraged him to bulk back up because he can move at any size. He looked way too thin this year. As for guard, he has never had a chance to focus on it. Only practiced LG the week of the Chiefs game. He never practiced it during the LG competition. All smoke. He's mean on the field. Great teammate!! He did solid against Bucs in 1st matchup. Struggled against Mack in 1st half, then adjusted well in the 2nd. Dominated Bosa and the Cowboys. Dominated the Panthers at RG in 2019 in his only start. I believe the last 2 years Atlanta's highest rushing game yardage totals have been Gono starts. Gonobeast!!!
  3. If Gono is going to be a true contender at LG he needs to actually practice the position and also bulk back up. Titans like their guards avg about 320lbs. Gono was 335 1st year then he was turned into a pencil for some reason. Man can move at 300 and 320 the same. No need to ever have him at 300
  4. If not drafting a qb ..... accumulate picks. Atlanta needs better players and depth.
  5. Agree ...... I do not think Atlanta will pay more for McGary. Gono is just as good at RT and more versatile across the line. I think Atlanta should see what they can get for McGary. Line will not do any worse without him. Already been proven.
  6. I predicted this back as soon as he was benched. He would be a Colt this year. Ryan needs a dome to play in, warm weather. Arm has regressed. But Brady's suddenly got stronger this year. Maybe Ryan needs to take or do whatever Brady is doing.
  7. Julio jones too much $. Randy Moss couldn't win a superbowl with 23 TDs, so 80% Jones and 6TDs is not winning it.
  8. 29 passes & 29 runs / Leftwich was brilliant / Chiefs can't tackle so run and play short pass game
  9. Matt had a mixed season. He looked really good at RT against the Cowboys and Chargers. Against the Bears in the 1st half he struggled against Mack but I think it was the scheme some as well. Against the Chiefs, I know for a fact he did not practice LG since the start of training until the week against the Chiefs. He has spent maybe a week learning LG in his Falcons career. Atlanta needs to beef him back up to play G. He can move well at 335lbs. He looks 300 now. He came to Atlanta at 320 and went up to 335. He's did show good push in the run game. I don't know if he is or is not better than McGary but he's just as good. Sign him then will not need to resign McGary to bigger deal down the road.
  10. Put some weight back on these guys. Gono looks 20-30 pounds lighter right now. Broaden the body. Takes up more space across the line.
  11. Exactly. Atlanta runs the ball well each time Gono plays. Everytime!! He practiced LG for 4 days going into Chiefs game .... that's it. And it's a fact. Teach him it and let him go.
  12. Atlanta shrunk his weight for no reason. He was 330 first year in Atlanta. He can move at 330. He could move very well at 320. Looks to be 300 right now. Looks like a pencil. Bulk the man back up and let him settle in a position and try mastering it. Yes he can help in a variety of ways but that's not helping him become the player he can be. Let others try doing what he has been training to do in Atlanta each year. Nobody on the team can do it. That's why let him settle in a spot. He's obviously the best athlete on the line.
  13. McGary played 75 percent of year. Lucky for him Kaleel Mack he didn’t face. Bosa would be too quick as well. I thought McGary improved some this year. It seemed watching games though players got through Lindstrom more than the pff rankings indicated.
  14. Cain Madden - Guard - Marshall Josh Ball - T - Marshall late round picks. Madden not declared yet but just named AP All American PFF - highest rated guard in nation
  15. 39 sacks allowed in 2 years!!! No way!!!! That's insane. He lucked out this year not having to face 2 out of the 3 best DE's on the schedule. Gono beaten by Mack but destroyed Bosa. Settle the man in a position and let him perfect his craft. And if it's at G actually let him learn the position not throw him out there not knowing the footwork and 4 days of practice against Chris Jones. And if it's Guard bulk him up. He looks like a pencil right now. He's a 330lb guy naturally not a 300lb dude. Sad
  16. Gono needs to be allowed to settle in and master his craft.
  17. I think his pocket awareness and mobility are a problem. But I think a masking offensive scheme can cover his problems. One would be to commit to the run. I think the Falcons D is up and down. I do not feel they create enough of game changing turnovers from the DL. I think they are weak in the secondary and at DE. I think McGary has limited potential unless he gets laterally quicker and hips loose. I think the ol are too slim, not wide enough especially at guard. Coaching or S&C philosophy (both maybe). I'd give Gono more than 4 days to learn the guard position before judging him as a failure at it. He doesn't even know the footwork for it. Then, I would let him bulk up to 320-325 like he should be at. He looks like a pencil right now. I think Ryan has problems but there are many more bigger problems. There is 0 ball control in this offense. I think OG can be found in a later rounds. Fields looks good. But Clemson Db's have been bad all year (Sam Howell). Fields has a big upside though. But so might a qb in the 2nd. Maybe consider drafting the LT and trade Matthews or McGary (picks). Truthfully, I like bloodlines and Surtain has that. And I think he could play S as well. Allow Atlanta a lot more versatility in the back. Better offensive scheme, improved pass D, more defensive sacks and turnovers = Ryan a winning QB (run the ball). Shut down opponents passing consistently.
  18. Ryan wins a lot more games if the Falcons commit to running the ball. Forget about padding Ryan's passing stats for the HoF and try winning close football games.
  19. Coincidence? 2020- falcons best look in run game - Gono started at LG with hardly practicing it 2019 - falcons best look in run game - Gono started at RG with hardly practicing it Gono playing helps run game Bulk him up to his natural 325-335 and let him learn the guard position hard to judge him as a guard after Only 4 days of practice but Atlanta might
  20. If Sewell is drafted Matthews - LT Lindstrom - LG Henne - C Gono - RG Sewell - RT mcgary - swing / mc Gary needs to be cross trained too
