  1. Those fans need corrective surgery to their perception. Falcons are are in the middle of an injury riddled season after b2b seasons with playoff wins and a SB berth. It’s wrong to blame coaching so soon. Its a knee-jerk reaction & lacks imagination. Personnel issues due to injury & talent deficiencies have prevented this team from playing to it’s strengths. All the weaknesses are glaringly apparent to opponents and there is no way to mask them right now. There is nothing the coaches can do until they have the players. It’s frustrating for everyone on the team to be pushed to do the impossible, the team game plan & philosophy can’t be followed through right now. Let’s talk about what adding two NFL starting caliber OG’s would correct: 1. MR2 would be able to climb in the pocket away from talented edge rushers, step up to plant his feet for intermediate & deep throws. 2. Give MR2 time to complete his timing throws, a staple of this offense. 3. Allow stretch run plays to make it to the edge and gain yards. 4. Open lanes to rush up the middle consistently, & set up a competent play-action that pulls defenders out of coverage. What about a big competent DT to play with Jarrett: 1. LB’s can fly around & edge rushers get more 1on1 matchups. 2. More sacks & pressures. 3. Less overcompensating in the secondary leading to penalties & blown coverages. Three players would totally change this team. You could get away with adding just one OG & a DT & make this team a contender. Falcons will not win without these corrections. Coaching is not the issue.
  2. Didn’t see it posted but Jacksonville’s #1 WR was just put on IR from the hit receive in Saturday nights game against Atlanta. I didn’t see Kazee’s hit but it at least tore his ACL. The preseason is glorified practice but with less control since there are a bunch of guys doing anything (playing hard) to make the team. Starters just want to shake off the rust. This is just one example of why no one should be complaining about our starters during preseason.
  3. There apparently are growing concerns with the field turf at the new stadium in regards to injuries. There seems to have been a slew of leg injuries that have occured in both college and NFL games. That is something to keep an eye on from here on out. I really hope its just a bunch of smoke and it doesn't ruin our season.
  4. http://gnb.247sports.com/Bolt/Report-Packers-work-out-three-free-agent-linebackers--107358988 Just saw this... I can see Coleman and Freeman licking their chops right now. Also, on a more pleasant note... that second guy reminds me of a girl I dated at church camp when I was a kid. The Green Bay Packers need more depth at the linebacker position due to Ahmad Brooks suffering a concussion in the season opener vs. the Seattle Seahawks. And it looks like they are paying close attention to three free-agent linebackers. According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, the Packers worked out three linebackers this week - Donnie Baggs, Brooks Ellis and Christian Kuntz. There has been no word yet of one of them being signed by the Packers. Baggs played college football at Texas A&M and spent time with the Dallas Cowboys in 2015. Last year, he played in the Canadian Football League and recorded four tackles for the Edmonton Eskimos. The Packers will face the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday night in their first road game of the year. Make sure you’re in the loop – take five seconds to Sign up for our FREE Packers newsletter now! Ellis played college football at Arkansas and signed with the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent back in May. At Arkansas, Ellis played in 49 games and recorded 290 tackles, 3.5 sacks two forced fumbles and 13 passes defended. Kuntz played college football at Duquesne and he originally signed with the Patriots in August. He was a two-time All-American while attending Duquesne. The Packers currently have eight linebackers on the active roster. If the Packers sign one of the three linebackers, he will likely be put on the practice squad.

  5. Haven't seen this posted here yet...but Ricardo's out and Brooks is back in this week. Therezie's getting the start at FS! I think DQ rly likes him and he may have a huge game. He was good at Auburn and definitely brings the heat. In preseason he was blowing guys up in limited playing time...imagine a full 4 qrts. Could be a big-time playmaker. Reed back means more rotation on the DL and can only mean a fresher, stronger pass rush. OScho and Beas are gonna have a game. sorry...see it now posted below now..refreshed 5 times and nothing...I post and then all these new posts appear...not on me!
  6. http://www.ajc.com/n...eff-fish/nT4W2/ Jeff Fish, the Falcons director of athletic performance, was released on Tuesday, the team confirmed. The move is surprising because several players credited Fish with improving their strength, speed and agility. Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez credited Fish's kettle bell workouts with helping him to continue to play at a high level at age 36. He also oversaw quarterback Matt Ryan's offseason workouts last season that were credited for his improve strength down the stretch. Except for the 2009 season, the team has not been beset with a great deal of serious injuries on Fish's watch. During the 2008 season, he was fined $2,500 by the league for his role in a sideline skirmish that involved Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall.
  7. If I remember correctly the 2010 Packers had at least a 20% of their starters on IR. On both sides of the football. What did they do? They won a Super Bowl. I know that's not the norm, but I feel that with a veteran QB like Matt Ryan and solid Vets at other positions, along with a good infusion of young talent (Love our young corners btw) we have run out of excuses. No more. Good veteran teams find a way. I am looking forward to seeing just how we respond to these challenges. Now, if we lose Matt due to our porous O-line this discussion is moot.
  8. On our last injury report it listed both Mcclain and Owens as questionable. Is there any more info on that? I just don't want to even think about the possibility of Franks being our starting nickle corner. **** I don't even want to think of Owens being our nickle.
