  1. 18 regular season games and going down to 2 preseason games would be simpler, why IMHO, because then that's 6 games from your division as always, 4 games from another division in your conference, 4 games from another division in your conference, then 4 games from a division from the other conference. You wouldn't have to worry about drawing games from the teams you placed in from the divisions the previous year. There would have to be 2 bye weeks of course, but it would be worth it. For example, let's say in year 1, the Falcons play the AFC South (vs Jaguars, at Colts, vs Titans, at Texans), the NFC East (vs Eagles, at Giants, vs Redskins, at Cowboys), the NFC North (vs Packers, at Lions, vs Vikings, at Bears), and our entire division as always which is 6 more games. Then in year 2, the Falcons play the AFC West (vs Raiders, at Chargers, vs Broncos, at Chiefs), the NFC North (vs Lions, at Packers, vs Bears, at Vikings), the NFC West (vs 49ers, at Seahawks, vs Cardinals, at Rams), and our entire division as always which is 6 games. Then in year 3, the Falcons play the AFC East (vs Jets, at Dolphins, vs Patriots, at Bills), the NFC East (vs Giants, at Eagles, vs Cowboys, at Redskins), the NFC West (vs Seahawks, at 49ers, vs Rams, at Cardinals), and our entire division as always which is 6 games. and so forth I actually prefer this rotation over the current one honestly.

  3. http://espn.go.com/blog/atlanta-falcons/post/_/id/3877/strength-of-schedule-falcons http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/115715/2014-nfl-strength-of-schedule Scanning the Atlanta Falcons' strength of schedule for 2014 tells me one thing: Let's just wait and see. Although the Falcons head in with the league's 11th-toughest schedule, based on the winning percentage of opponents from this past season, there are some factors that have yet to be accounted for in this equation. For starters, no one knows which of the teams on the Falcons' schedule will make significant upgrades via free agency. Adding an impact player such as defensive end Greg Hardy could help change one team's entire outlook. Also, certain teams could strike gold in the draft. Preseason injuries could come into play. Such was the case with the Falcons last season, as Roddy White suffered a high-ankle sprain in the preseason and wasn't the same for most of the season. The Falcons face new coaches in Tampa Bay (Lovie Smith), Detroit (Jim Caldwell), Minnesota (Mike Zimmer) and Cleveland (Mike Pettine). The wild-card game for the Falcons will be facing the Lions midseason in London. It could throw them off their rhythm if they are rolling, depending on how they respond to the long trip. Whatever happens, the Falcons definitely have to rebound from this past season's 4-12 failure. Getting Julio Jones back should be a good start.
  4. So let's get past the entire who we should have drafted, who we did draft etc.. If the current draftees were to all make the team and contribute, how do you see us matching up in the first 4 games? At New Orleans Rams at home At Miami New England at home. Keep in mind, I'm interested in how you see us matching up with our picks/scheme vs. the teams we play the first month. I think the first (4) games will be indicative how we adjust to the different types of offenses. I don't study/watch much of Miami/St. Louis so I'm curious how we'll stack up against them. Tavon Austin will be a match-up that will be interesting. Miami has a slew of new contributors and a mobile quarterback. New Orleans is New Orleans - how will we defend Graham etc., with our new CBs. Anyway, I'm over the draft, FA etc., and want to talk about who we see as interesting match ups, strengths/weaknesses. I know it is premature and early but....I like to hear from the gallery. I don't pretend to know the intracacies of our system but always like to learn. The floor is yours..... Go Falcons.
  5. A lot of the talking heads are pointing out that the Falcons have beaten teams with a poor record thus far in the season. The Falcons could have played these teams instead of one of the games these teams won and if they won them all, the record would still be against teams with a poor record: Packers Saints Giants (would be .500) SF (would be .500) Cowboys Eagles Would it make any difference?
  6. Does anybody have a tv schedule for any of the spring training yet? I am itching for a few games and moved up here to NC and that hurts me a bit getting coverage every now and again, although the baseball team here is the braves, followed by Cincinnati and Washington.(ugh, I know)
