I will because I am not a blind follower of anyone, and this team has been a part of my life for 36 years and I want them to do well. The whole division is stocking up on playmakers and we are drafting nobody's. The rest of the league is laughing at us right now, and that's not just me talking, go to any other message board aside from this one.They are asking if Al Davis is making our pics.

Run for the hills, fans of the Saints, Panthers and Bucs are critical of our draft picks! In other news the sky is blue.

Honestly, there's a fine line between "blind following" and "blind hate". There is nothing wrong with disliking a pick and giving valid reasons why. However, you have offered no rationale at all beyond a) some ephemeral draft board that isn't Atlanta's had these players rated at x position and b ) some morons on a message board are mocking us (oh the humanity).

I'm not saying anything of the sort, but we could have gotten better players at the positions we picked. I have no problem with taking Spoon or even Johnson, but the other two picks were terrible values. There were much higher rated players available at those spots in those positions.

ok one of the guys you refer to is peters? don't get me wrong I would love to see atkins on the falcons. (but thats just cause I watch georgia) but peters hits more solid plan and simple......tkae this with a grain of salt geogia fans "but what did georgia D do last year?" the only thing I see thats worthy of being a name in NFL is maybe atkins but I more so say that rashaad johnson will be.

so peters what a very good very good pick. and if we waited for a position we need would have not be pretty. even though peters was a late 4 or 5, but the draft is going after D, so he could have been gone before our pick in the fourth

Somehow this doesn't really surprise me the way we've been going so far in the draft. I knew we had to address issues in the defense and we've done that for the most part so far in getting a better CB (Robinson), drafting a really good linebacker (Spoon), and drafting depth to DT (Peters). We added key players on our O-line in Mike Johnson (who should be a lock starter on our O-line by next year), and our future center (Joseph Hawley) once McClure retires.

These aren't flashy picks, but they are necessary. Our main needs this year was to strengthen the defense and the O-line, and we need a TE to replace Gonzalez once he retires. I think we still may take a WR and or TE still, but I think we're pretty much set on offense now for next year. I would say probably next year with our 1st round pick we'll go WR and TE in the 1st and 2nd round or visa-versa.

I'm not a blind follower either, but at least I can be objective enough not to let other team's message boards dictate how I think about our teams needs. You could be listening to a bunch of 12 year olds for all you know.
