  1. Won't even be a shock really. We have all the pieces on offense and Morris did a great job with the defense in the 2nd half of the season. Anything less than 10 wins would be a major disappointment.
  2. Koetter is who he is, his offensive scheme hasn't changed since he was the OC in 2012. He's the Mike Smith of OC's....refuses to change with the times.
  3. Barring injuries, there's no reason to think we won't be a playoff team. My only area of concern is at the CB position. We are incredibly young there and even if AJT turns out to be great, rookie CBs historically struggle. Oliver is average on his best day, and we won't know until the season starts if Sheff can make a jump from his rookie year. However, if the additions of Fowler and Davidson increase our QB pressures and sack numbers, that will help our young CB group tremendously. I'm also very high on Morris having full control of the defense. I think 8 wins is our floor,
  4. People can dislike them just as much as others like them. People can still love the Falcons and dislike their uniforms. My thoughts on them haven't changed. The helmet is awesome, but the 3D number shading screams high school, and the gigantic ATL is just corny. Rather than looking into an echo chamber of Falcon fans, that either hate them or love them, look at what other fans think. Everyone loved the new Bucs and Chargers uniforms, and the Pats new uniforms were more of a lukewarm reaction. When the Falcons uniform dropped, the majority of reactions from non-Falcon fans were summe
  5. I certainly hope so! Would love for him and Terrell to be bookends at the position.
  6. Not trying to argue, but I'm genuinely curious how you can say he played smarter and stopped making mistakes when he was allowing completions at a higher rate, more yards, and higher passer ratings to opposing QBs.....all while being targeted at nearly the exact same rate. If that target % goes up in the 2nd half of the season, then it makes sense that opposing QB numbers would go up against him. But it didn't, it stayed the same and his coverage numbers got worse. I get that stats don't tell the whole story, but that works more for a QB with a lot of incompletions yet his WRs are droppi
  7. I can give you that. He only played 10 defensive snaps in the first 3 games, so he didn't truly have playing time until week 4. I'll start his stats from there. Games 4-10 (53 snaps per game) Completion % Allowed: 73.91% Passer Rating Allowed: 87.9 Yards Per Target: 7.73 Targets per snap: 45.3% Games 11-16 (54 snaps per game) Completion % Allowed: 82.85% Passer Rating Allowed: 109.43 Yards Per Target: 9.17 Targets per snap: 46.2% He actually had WORSE stats in the second half than in the first half of the season, while being target
  8. Slightly disagree with the first, agree with the second. Our defensive line is improved over last year, even if it's only slightly. Fowler may have been a product of Donald, but I'd take just about any starting DE in the league over Beasley. I think releasing Campbell was addition by subtraction (also note his loss of snaps to Foye during our 6-2 run). The only issues on offense were at RB and G, and regardless of potential injury, Gurley is an immediate improvement over Freeman. As for the secondary, I'm with you there. Our front 7 better come to play. Oliver is average on a good
  9. 7-9 is a pretty safe bet. Given our division history, I always just start with a base 3-3 record. Seattle - W Dallas - L Chicago - W Green Bay - L Minnesota - L Detroit - W Denver - W Las Vegas - W LA Chargers - W Kansas City - L So 9-7 is where I think we end up. But its the NFL, none of us have a clue what could happen.
  10. If anything, this should be to our advantage. We won't be playing in front of majority opposing fans 16 games out of the year like usual.
  11. My reply before that was to someone who said he was the best CB on the team last year, which would imply that they believed he was good.
  12. The large ATL and number font were my only complaints, so this is an automatic upgrade for me. Any gradient is bad though.
  13. I'll level that statistics can be misleading, but PFF (who ignores statistics for the most part in favor of watching film for every player on every snap) had him graded as the lowest rated starter on defense in 2019. So if his film is showing him as bad, and his statistics are showing him as bad.....I'm not sure how one could argue that he was good.
  14. He was one of the worst starting CBs in the NFL last year. He allowed a 75% completion rating, 110.0 passer rating, and 8.1 yards per target (not per completion, per target). He was a rookie and CB has one of the steepest learning curves from college to the pros, so I expect him to make a big jump in 2020. But as for 2019, he was downright bad.
  15. Yep, I have a Ryan authentic black throwback and don't plan on buying or wearing any other. Don't mean to beat a dead horse, but I had the money ready to go to buy one of the new ones until I saw them. Went on a nice date instead.
