  1. New highlight video my made of our Dline from last year. Hopefully it can get us hype for the line we have now. With the new additions Takk and Vic just might look even better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qq6sx7fznCY
  2. Yes, it's only week one but this puts it into perspective a little better. Sarks play calling was a little vanilla but it was his first game and we're 5th in total offense. I expect as the season progresses the offensive play calling to get more creative with longer shots down the field and more PA. We had to shake off the rust a bit. On the defensive side of the ball, man our DL is stout. Poe and Jarrett were providing a consistant push up the middle which is why Beasley and Reed both had sacks. Our LBs were flying to the ball - Campbell looked especially good. And Keanu Neal abo
  3. I just wanted to acknowledge a bright spot on the defense's 15 point game today: Vic Beasley was credited with a strip sack. He's #2 in the NFL in sacks (pending Seahawks vs Panthers game) When hasn't he stripped the ball when he's sacked the QB? I can't wait to see how the front seven evolves around him because he can play 5 out of 7 of the positions in blitz packages.
  4. I've been thinking about our front 7 options on 1st, 2nd and 3rd down all day while working. Who would you send on the field for three downs (include your choice of first round pick)? 1st Down: Go Big to Stop the Run 2nd Down: Get to Third and Long 3rd Down: Drop the QB Link to PowerPoint on DropBox: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/29015067/New%20Defense.pptx
  5. What is your opinion on Greg Hardy? He has been awfully productive but I know our outlook on off the field issues. Would you risk a long term high $ contract to sign him? I think there is a fair chance he hits FA. Panthers are paying him $13mm for nothing this year. If he hits free agency I am certain some team (Bengals, Patriots, Raiders etc...) will offer him a multi year guaranteed contract. My guess is it would take around ~$10mm per/yr for atleast 3 yrs to get him. Is he worth the risk? I think I would take the risk especially if we could get him at a discount from his market val
  6. The guy definitely needs to work on some things but he was one of the few bright spots on this team last year. He had 3.5 sacks and a few tackles for loss (not sure how many) playing as a 4-3 outside linebacker. I think this guy could shine in the 3-4 with our newly beefed up D line. Spoon could be on the outs, I don't expect much from Osi, Biermann has never really been an effective pass rusher and I don't see any of our rookies making a big impact this year. Does anyone else think Bartu could step up and potentially lead the team (or be one of the leaders) in sacks this year for us?
  7. I posed this question within another thread, but that thread is now on page 1000, so I am asking it this way (plus, I rarely create a thread and figure a few of my fellow Falcons brethren know how contracts work). Can a contract be designed where incentives are based on a per sack basis? I know most are on totals (like over this many sacks or INTs), but I'm thinking of Abe and other older pass rushers who want decent money, but are long in the tooth and would mainly be used as pass-rushers to get the QB on the ground. So, for example...could TD offer Abe (or Freeney or whomever) a contract of
  8. This video gets me pumped about who we just picked up. He really does look a lot like a younger Abe out there. One thing I noticed was his quickness off the line. Check out the 1:00 mark where he just burst across the line and gets to the quarterback. That wasn't help. That was pure speed. There's also one where he takes down Cutler using pure speed around the edge to beat his man. I hope plays like that are indicative of his talent and not the help around him. He's not the defensive player of the year yet, even on paper, but I think he'll do well under Nolan with full time work. We still need
  9. I'm not a lover or a hater of Ray Edwards but just a little amateur research to offer some perspective/hope: In his first 7 starts of each season, since becoming a starter 2007, Edwards amassed 5 sacks in 28 games. In his last 7 starts since 2007 including 2 play-off games, Edwards ammased 17 sacks in 26 games (he missed the last 4 games of the 2007 season). On the down side we have 3 more games of Jamaal Anderson type production. Upside is that according to the trend, he'll step things up down the stretch...
