its not like he was a player that we CODUL NOT PASS ON. u know he played DE one year in college

watever, its not like we can do anything about it but i was just looking thru te 2007 year draft and the first round was stacked

jesus. if we got ANYONE besdies 98, theres like a 80 percent chance we ended up with a pretty good player.

ugh how i long for darrelle revis. ahh patrick willis. oooh dwayne bowe. eee jon beason.

why couldnt TD come a year sooner!!! we wouldve been int he superbowl last year and thats no lie

I don't follow college closely, so I had not heard of Adrian Peterson until he lit up the NFL in his rookie season. Those of you who saw him in college ... was it obvious he was going to rock the NFL world like he has, or has it been a surprise? (Tell the truth now :) )

He was good. Had a few injury concerns. Plus (as shown by last year) he had issues holding onto the ball.

Had he fell to another team he wouldn't be as good, but what RB would behind a terrible line?

I was very high on Peterson ever since he was a freshman at Oklahoma, he was one of the best pure runners I've seen in college. When Adrian Peterson was available I was getting very excited that the Falcons were going to draft him... then the Vikings selected him. As for Jamaal Anderson I didn't know much about him but I thought maybe he could turn out to be decent... I was pretty high on Patrick Willis as well, but didn't know he was going to be this good this fast.

It is disappointing that JA 98 hasn't lived up to his draft billing but it happens. Lets keep in mind that we were all calling for McKay's head for drafting Roddy and Jenkins and they came on after a few years in the league. Sometimes it just takes more time for that light to come on.

The same can be said for Erik Flowers then?

What if.....

What if the Falcons hadn't traded a 1st round pick that turned out to be Jamal Lewis in order to draft Reggie Kelly.

What if the Falcons hasn't traded Brett Favre for a pick used on a running back that never had a carry after his rookie season.

What if the Falcons hadn't traded two first rounders that were eventually used on future HOF candidates (Bryant Young and Marvin Harrison) in order to get Jeff George.

This is a good football team, i think it's funner to look forward.

What if JA98 does break out this season? :o

The draft is an absolute crapshoot. You can look back on every draft and say that. If you couldn't, the draft would be three rounds.
Dam good post. I tell you bro. You, Ghost and Falcon Lord are some pretty dam good posters. I tend to resonate to posters that are realists. The ones that tell it like it I.S. is. You are one of em. Good post.

Fact is, you can go back and second guess half the league in any year.

With that said, Busterson was a mistake on day one.

I think he is going to do OK. I don't know if he will be a 10 sack guy, but I think he is improving. The Falcons have 5 DEs that each bring something. That's pretty cool, and I don't know when that's been the case.

Honestly, if we get 7 or 8 sacks with pressures and solid run defense, I'd be okay with that (at least this year). With 5 DE's do you think we'll carry all 5? That thought has been in the back of my mind. Would we carry 9 DL???

I don't see how you can cut any of them. Because he doesn't have the big name, I guess Bierman could be most likely to get cut, but Smith is a fan of keeping the best 53 football players, and Bierman, quite frankly, is in the top 20 football players on the team in my opinion. I can't see him getting cut.

They can't cut Sid, so that just leaves JA and Davis. The Falcons could potentially trade Chauncey or Jamaal, I would not be shocked.

Yeah it was. The man was a beast in college. He was great. He had some injuries. But he had All-Pro written all over him

Barry Sanders

the LOL LIONS were awful and he still destroyed people by breaking tackles and juking like he never juked before
