falconidae Posted August 24, 2011 Share Posted August 24, 2011 Great time to be a Falcons fan. Anybody complaining about this team must not remember the days in the NFCW with the clampetts owning the team.It starts with the owner wanting to win, don't think it was ever a priority for the Smiths, it is for Blank.Blank made a few mistakes early- signed Vick to a huge extension a year too early, was too involved in football decisions, didn't hire the right people- Mora, Petrino, but once he turned the football decisions over to a football person, this team has been on a run.TD has been amazing, not because he's perfect by any means, but because so many of his decisions have been good ones. If Jerry becomes the beast they thought they drafted and the Oline improves over the next 2-3 years because of players like Reynolds, Valdez, Hawley and Jackson, then he deserves another exec of the year.This is an important year for several players, and, by extension, TD. Can Ryan take his game up another notch? Can Spoon, Moore and Jerry become the playmakers the D needs? Is Franks a nickel? Edwards, Drob, Reynolds, Baker and Jone all have things to prove this year.
