As the OP I will add to the list of prospects as I get relevant information and list them by grouping on the main post. 2. Any information provided by other posters will be added as long as there is evidence either by LINK or SOURCE posted here 3. Any written post without a LINK or SOURCE will not be added to the LIST 4. Discussion in the Thread is fine when talking about players, but keep it about the players we are meeting / working out 5. No mock drafts in the Thread pls 6. Videos will be posted about the players as I can find the time to do it on my YT or Twitch 7.

  2. GURLEY'S REBIRTH? Don't underestimate the back's dynamic potential in Atlanta Don't let Todd Gurley's recent release from the Los Angeles Rams fool you into believing he's a washed-up player incapable of making a resurgence as the Atlanta Falcons' RB1. The 2017 Offensive Player of the Year will not only enjoy a major bounceback season, but he will re-emerge as an MVP candidate while serving as the centerpiece of an offense that will light up scoreboards across the league. I know those are lofty expectations for a running back coming off a disappointing season on a team that was supposed to be a Super Bowl contender, but Gurley is joining the best offense that he's ever played on. The 2020 Falcons have better personnel at the marquee skill positions, and their offensive line is a significant upgrade over the unit Gurley left in Los Angeles. Don't believe me? Take a look for yourself. Would you rather have Matt Ryan or Jared Goff? How about the combination of Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Hayden Hurst vs. Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Gerald Everett/Tyler Higbee? What about an offensive line in Atlanta that features five former first-round picks? You want that, or L.A.'s patchwork group that struggled for most of 2019 following the departures of Rodger Saffold and John Sullivan? Unless you're a Rams homer, you'd pick the Falcons' nominees in each scenario. The Dirty Birds have premier players on the perimeter, including one of the best receivers in all of football, as well as a former MVP at quarterback. The mere presence of Jones and Ryan will create more opportunities for Gurley to get loose, and he's proven that he's a monster against light boxes in the recent vintage. According to Next Gen Stats, Gurley faced a light box (fewer than seven defenders) on 43.7 percent of the Rams' offensive snaps in 2017 and '18, compiling a robust yards-per-carry average of 5.8 -- most among running backs with a minimum of 100 rushing attempts in this span. Looking at the Falcons' roster and their potential "11" personnel package (1 RB, 1 TE, 3 WR), the offense should face plenty of light boxes. Opponents will be forced to largely concentrate on defending the Ryan-Jones connection, with Ridley serving as a high-end complement on the back side. Atlanta will be able to take advantage of those looks by getting the ball to Gurley on an assortment of runs and passes out of the backfield. Before you @ me regarding Gurley's diminishing production in 2019, I think it is fair to ask if No. 30's talents were maximized by Sean McVay and Co. during his final season in L.A. In 2017 and '18, Gurley averaged 22.7 touches, 88.1 rush yards and 135.3 scrimmage yards with 40 total touchdowns. In 2019, those numbers plummeted to 16.9 touches, 57.1 rush yards and 70.9 scrimmage yards with 14 total touchdowns. In addition, Gurley's playtime percentages (75.8 to 74.6 to 71.5) and touch percentage (45.4 to 40.0 to 33.8) steadily decreased over the past three seasons. Did Gurley's health dictate the reduction, or did McVay forget about his top offensive weapon? Remember, McVay pointed the finger at himself in early December. Asked about what caused an uptick in usage for the back, the coach deadpanned, "Me not being an idiot." "Gurley still has it," I was told by an AFC running backs coach who studied the Pro Bowler after his release. "They didn't use him enough, but his speed, burst and running skills are still there. ... He just needs to be featured like he was in 2017 and 2018. If he gets the rock, he will put up big numbers." And as I mentioned before, the Rams' offensive line did not get the job done last season. At the end of the regular season, Pro Football Focus ranked the unit 31st. Tough to run through holes that don't exist. It's easy to dismiss a running back when he has reached a certain point of his career, but I wouldn't underestimate Gurley's chances of re-emerging as one of the top playmakers in football, especially given his upgraded supporting cast in Atlanta.

  3. The fact remains that the Atlanta Falcons are currently strapped for cap space. However, without making any resounding moves they will need to get creative to improve the defensive line. I believe that this offseason will be the perfect test for this team and show they elect to move forward. The following are three defensive line free agents the Falcons should target. Charlotte Observer 1. DT Gerald McCoy After signing a 1-yr deal with the Carolina Panthers Gerald McCoy finds himself in a similar situation. He finished the season with five sacks, seven tackles for loss, and 13 quarterback hits. For example, Grady Jarrett finished the season with 7.5 sacks, 12 tackles for loss, and 16 quarterback hits. Adding another dynamic player to the interior could be the key to unlocking the Falcons pass rush. Link to full article - https://www.overtimeheroics.net/index.php/2020/03/14/3-defensive-line-free-agents-the-falcons-should-target/ Definitely wondering what yall think. Honestly, the TD way has been to sign lower-tier guys and get the most out of them. I'm not sure who those guys are in this year's crop. Who do you think the Falcons should target? Cuts definitely need to be made for moves to happen but I expect those to come soon.
  4. If this is not allowed please feel free to take it down, but I thought maybe I'd do a show for y'all talking draft and and do some mock drafts. Come chat with the Grounders and let us know your thoughts and favored players in the draft class LINK - https://www.twitch.tv/unintentionalgrounding
  5. Here is my brief take on what will happen with some of main players. I don’t see Cap being an issue when you can manipulate the cap in many ways... Restructures: Alex Mack: This is a no-brainer and he will be retained. We will extend him for 1 or 2 years bringing his cap hit to about $3-4 mil. He will get a signing bonus. He is too important for the line and he is still a top 5 center. He is a leader and a mentor for the OL. He is the anchor of that OL. Hooper: He is too important for the Falcons and Matty Ice. They have worked too hard to just finish the relationship. He is Matty’s 3rd main target and an important asset for the vertical game. We lost Sanu, and Hooper became even more important. They will sign him for 4-5 years and keep his cap hit lower the first 2-3 season. Trufant: He plays an important position and he has been solid when healthy. He will be extended to lower his cap hit. The dead money associated with his contract is too much to just cut him. This also makes trading him much harder. As a business decision and as a player, it doesn’t make sense to cut him. He will be kept. I expect his cap hit will be lowered to about 4-5 mil this year and with slight increases for the upcoming seasons. He will be extended for 1 or 2 more seasons where you could cut him in 2 years without a lot of dead money. Julio Jones new contract could be tweaked and adding more cap relieve this year. They have the flexibility to get some cap relieve. Deion Jones: They could restructure his contract to get some cap relieve. This will allow the Falcons to keep Neal. This is another no-brainer and will get the Falcons another 2-3 mil in cap relieve. Freeman: He will be either traded or cut. He is not the same player, but he is still serviceable. He is a decent player who could help a team that needs a veteran RB that can be effective when healthy. Vic Beasley: They could bring him back with an incentive contract. His base salary could be around 5-6 million, but with incentives for performance. They could sign him for 2-3 years and still cut him without much dead money. He knows the system and Quinn has spent a lot of his time grooming the player. He is a good situational player and someone wants to stay here. He became more effective when they defense made adjustments after the bye week. Otherwise, he will be playing somewhere else. Neal: This is a little bit complicated and an unfortunate situation. But, Neal is a player that the Falcons desire. They could keep him and even sign him with a new contract that lowers his $6 million cap hit for the 5th year option. They could lower his cap hit by another 2-3 million. Neal knows that he has no leverage due to his injuries, but he is a good player and a leader. They will monitor his progress and make a decision. But, I doubt they will just let him walk because he is good when healthy. The Falcons could keep him here for much longer with a cap friendly contract for another 4-5 years. OL: We could see 2-3 cuts here to bring additional cap relieve, but with some dead money. They could draft one OL via the draft and one via free agency. With all of these restructures, extensions or cuts, the Falcons could easily add cap relieve and keep the core intact. Hooper will be kept and it is not even that complicated. We will make some additional cuts around secondary players. Campbell could be added back with a very affordable contract and Clayborn as well. Those contracts are affordable and makes sense. The draft should give the Falcons at least 3-4 players who could be part of the active roster and filling important holes on the roster. Thomas is very good as a GM in keeping the core players and tweaking the contracts. I see the Falcons getting very creative this season.
  6. https://twitter.com/search?q=Tony Gonzalez%2BNFL&src=typed_query Haven't seen anything on this yet. Tony Gonzalez name a finalist for the all NFL 100 team.
  7. Man, I always love the inside info we get on the Falcons. This article by MMQBSI, as usual, paints a very clear picture on how DQ feels about the coaching staff going forward. Some of us speculated on the positions, roles, etc. on the coaches that have been added. Some were right, some were wrong, but it's clear DQ is no fool and has no ego when it comes to errors he's made and looking for ways to correct them so he doesn't double down on them, making them worse. He's not infallible, but when I tell you he's one of the best coaches in the league, that is one of the reasons why. He's always looking to improve and surround himself with people who feel the same way and aren't above acknowledging they have room to improve as well as holding him accountable. He's not looking for a room full of yes men, and he dam sure got it right from the sound of this article. The part about Koetter and Mularkey got me most excited, because we've all speculated it. But the concerns DQ had about Koetter's propensity to want to go pass happy were clearly considered, which is exactly why he brought Mularkey, who we all know can create a running game out of thin air. That's what I'm talking about. DQ isn't arrogant or some fool. He sees what we see, and more, and works to make sure he can win with it. Koetter and Mularkey should be able to dismantle defenses on a regular basis with their football knowledge and the talent on the team. I can't wait. FOOTBALL IS BACK!!!
  8. After a 1-7 start before the bye week, it looked like this was setting up to be our worse season since 2007 (when we went 4-12) or even 1996 when we went (3-13) with a historically bad defense. We came into the bye week wondering what would happen on the road against our division rivals of the Saints and Panthers, realizing how much worse it could be. We come into the Saints and Panthers games on the road, and we end up winning by shocking scores of 26-9 and 29-3. I didn't see this coming at all. 6 sacks on Drew Brees when we only had like 7 sacks all year coming into the game? All those INT's we forced against Kyle Allen when we only had a few all year? Never in my lifetime I've seen a really bad football team have a turn around like this way too late. So apparently from what I've read, during the bye week we changed our coaching staff. Dan Quinn is no longer handling the defensive side of the ball, Jeff Ulbrich has taken over as the new defensive coordinator and Raheem Morris switched from wide receivers coach to defensive backs coach, and wholy s**t it has made a drastic difference. WHERE THE HECK HAS THIS BEEN ALL SEASON LONG! It's frustrating man. I'm excited to play spoiler on the Saints #1 seed chances and continue to own Panthers, but at the same time, there's a certain way I feel. It's hard for me to not be upset at Dan Quinn for screwing our defense up the 1st half of the year when the potential was there all along. Another year of Matt Ryan and Julio Jones wasted. What if we go 7-1 the rest of the year or 6-2 and get to 7-9 or 8-8? Will this carry onto next season? I honestly don't know because it's not promised we'll have this similar production we've put up the past two games against the Saints and Panthers, ****, we may not have this production against the 49ers in San Fran or the Jags at home. What if it's because we are playing our division rivals? Anyways, I want to bring up some mind blowing stats and streaks the Falcons broke in this past 2 games against the Saints and Panthers, a lot of these are amazing, positive or sad at the same time. 1. We held the Panthers scoreless for the first 3 quarters, only the 2nd time the Panthers have been shut out the first 3 quarters in the Ron Rivera era. 2. Kenjon Barner's 78 yard punt return against the Panthers, was our 1st return of ANYTHING (punt or kickoff) we've had since Devin Hester in 2014. Not surprised. I remember in 2016 we would always have bad starting field position, but it didn't matter because of how high powered our offense was. 3. After the recent Falcons-Saints match up between Matt Ryan & Drew Brees, Matt Ryan & Drew Brees have now surpassed Dan Marino & Jim Kelly for the most match ups between two quarterbacks in the Super Bowl era. This was Matt Ryan & Drew Brees’ 22nd match up. It's amazing how this is overlooked, but they've played so many times since 2008! 4. After our 26-9 victory over the Saints, the Falcons held an opponent WITHOUT a TD for the first time since 2012 against the Giants when we won 34-0. The Falcons had the longest streak of at least 1 TD allowed per/game in NFL history at 106 games. Very sad statistic when you think about it, this tells you how bad the defenses have always been with Matt Ryan as our QB, but hey, at least we finally broke the streak. 5. First time since 2003 a team with a record of 1-7 or worse defeats a team with a record of 7-1 or better. I'd like to know if the match up in 2003 were division rivals or not, but bottom line is, I think it has more to do with how talented the Falcons were, but we've been coached up so badly all year. We have way too much talent to had been 1-7 or now 3-7. 6. We also ended the Saints' streak of 110 consecutive home games in which they reached double-digits in scoring. First time since 2005 a team holds the Saints under 10 points in the Super Dome. That was the year before the Drew Brees & Sean Payton era, which means that was the first time we ever held them without a TD in the Super Dome! Hey strange things can happen in a heated rivalry right? I'm just scratching my head. After all of these streaks, and how our defense has had this amazing turnaround. Just unbelievable. I still have every reason to be upset at Dan Quinn tho. The question will be, can we have a similar DEFENSIVE performance against a non-division rival like the 49ers. Can we do this against the Jaguars, an AFC team? Can we snap our 8 game losing streak to AFC teams at home? Haven't won an AFC home game since the Texans in 2015. Would love to do that against the Jaguars so it'll set up next season for us on a positive note.
  9. I haven't been on here in a while; so I was thinking about fans like SacFalcFan, BEllis24, Shay56, NLF, Capologist, CHRISB, Samman, Blackwave, Parrothead, Amillenium, MWJR, CindyMac, BobChristian44, Clownorg, Jstammer, all the incarnations of Falconmania, and even the one who would be my double in the Bizarro world--Judas Yeast.
  10. And to think, the Texans were ready to run fuller out of town.
  11. UNBELIEVABLE! We are currently the Dolphins hidden by the success of Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. We are a complete joke of an organization right now! I will not watch anymore Falcons games until Dan Quinn leaves now! I'm sick and tired of this BS! Year after year after year!
  12. With a ton more talent on this roster. The 2007 team was the weird post-Vick and pre-Ryan year. This current team is much worse. For the 2nd week in a row, our offense shows up but our defense can’t do ANYTHING! Tony Gonzalez just said it on FOX. Only the Miami Dolphins have a worse defense than us! The offensive side of the ball deserves much better than this BS Dan Quinn has done to the defense. Fire Quinn now! Sick of it!!!!!
  13. Or are we really aren't as talented as we think we are? There's multiple former pro bowlers on this team. The Falcons have so many flaws and problems right now the list is too long to make. Some of these problems, such as bad special teams coverage, horrible starting field position, our offensive line/running back not getting a yard, our defense being mediocre as usual, have been problems with the Falcons for several years now, even in the Mike Smith years. The difference is when we had good teams, we got away with these problems but it always came back to hunt us somewhere in the postseason. Now we have a s**t ton more problems than ever before. Matt Ryan is old. Julio Jones is getting old. Alex Mack is old now. Matt Bryant as great as he is we have to draft a new quality kicker ASAP. Devonta Freeman was built perfectly for Shanahan's offense but with Koetter (including 2014) and Sarkisian, what has Freeman really done? Trufant, nothing more than an average corner, he's never been elite, always been average and good enough to be a solid starter, but in Trufant's 7 seasons with the Falcons, he's only been in the postseason with us ONCE, that was in 2017. He was injured in our Super Bowl run, and we missed the playoffs in 2013-2015, 2018, and now it's going to be 2019. The Falcons need a more physical offensive line, we're working on that, but the overhaul of the O-line may have come at a worse time. Maybe it'll benefit us the next few years, but we don't know for sure yet. Along with our offensive line, we need a bigger workhorse back who weighs more and can help us run out clock better to help the defense, not light weighted guys like Freeman or Ito. Freeman and Ito are good, but we need to draft a fresh big workhorse back, like another Turner, or a Blunt, a Chubb, a Henry, behind a big physical O-line. Freeman was mostly built for Shanahan's offense like I said previously. A bigger workhorse back is built more for the current offense we have now. Last but not least, I don't care what QB we draft, if we don't have the previous I mentioned along with an ELITE DEFENSE or a TOP 10 DEFENSE for once who has a lot of fire lit up on them with great leadership. We will never win the big one. Defense wins championships. Enough of the mediocre sorry defenses in Atlanta with no leadership at all and a lot of sorry players who can't tackle or make good plays consistently. We're not getting anywhere with this current defense. We need to draft better, bigger and more physical guys up front and in the secondary. Just having Grady Jarrett, Deion Jones, and Ricardo Allen is not enough.
  14. What's so special about the AFC? What's so special about that conference to the point where the Falcons can't beat them anymore? I know since the Chargers in 2016, we've lost 11 of our last 12 AFC games overall (including the Super Bowl), but you want to know what's even worse, since 2013, we've lost 11 of our last 12 AFC home games. How could the Falcons have the worst non-conference home record in the NFL the past 6 seasons? I don't understand why this has been the case the past several seasons. This has included mediocre losses to the Chargers, Bills, Dolphins, Bengals, and so forth. In 2015, we beat the Houston Texans by a final score of 48-21. That was Dan Quinn's 1st AFC home game, and it's Dan Quinn's only AFC home win to this very day. Not only that, but it's the Falcons only AFC home win since the 2013 season. We better get over it today, because I was really upset after that Colts loss on the road last weekend. I still want Quinn out after that loss, but if he loses to the Titans today and it's yet another AFC home loss for the Falcons, the writing on the wall will be clear, and the Falcons will have to wait until the Jaguars to get another chance.
  15. Just curious about something. For the first time in a long time free looked like himself and it was awesome. Are we really so pass happy that we can't use the running game? It was the hottest thing we had smoking and even the refs on the first drive said the Atlanta Falcons massive line just swallows up the colts smaller (Defence). The box didn't seem loaded and eve. If the were free was averaging 10 yards a rush attempt well into the game. Just curious about your thoughts on the playcalling and execution. Playing from behind doesn't really mean for e the pass. Enforce your will on O and let the defense rest.
  16. RISEEEEEEE UP FALCONS FANS!!!! We are now approaching our first game in just a couple of short weeks and I could not be more excited! We are in need of 50+ reliable, friendly,upbeat volunteers to assist working the stands during the Falcons home games throughout the season.

All volunteers must be 18+ and have a valid state ID. If you are a falcons fan, a college student that needs volunteer hours, just someone looking for something to do or know anyone that fits those descriptions... CONTACT ME! Please email me at glvolunteersquad@gmail.com if interested. LET'S GET READY FOR A KICKASS SEASON!
  17. You know what I'm worried about the most at this point? Since our loss to the Chargers in 2016, we've literally lost every AFC game in the preseason and regular season except for the Jets on the road in 2017. Seriously. Since the 2016 Chargers, that's 10 AFC losses out of our last 11 AFC games, and if you throw in our 11 straight preseason losses (only one of those was against a NFC team) so that's 10 AFC preseason losses added on. We've lost a total of 20 of our last 21 games to AFC opponents in the preseason and regular season combined. YIKES, and the 2019 version of the AFC South will be tougher than the 2011 and 2015 AFC South divisions we faced. You already know it. Road games against the Colts and Texans will be brutal, but the Titans and Jaguars shouldn't be hard right? Oh wait, we've lost all of our home games vs AFC opponents since 2013 except for the 2015 Texans. In order for the Falcons to win the Super Bowl they have to beat an AFC opponent right?
