Falcon Fantom

? Robert Mcclain ?

In my opinion, a back field of Samuels, Grimes, Robinson, Moore, and DeCoud great, any team would love to have that, but how are we going to keep them all, especially with the help and depth we need at LB, DE and DT especially. Moore and Grimes will want more money. Robinson's contract is ridiculous and he already restructured last year I believe. What are we to do? IDK, I do know that I liked how fearless and gutsy McClain played starting with the MNF game against the Broncos. Was he perfect the whole year, no, but he was soild and could be plugged in in case we lose Robinson or Grimes. JS.

Could not find any highlights on the guy. Discuss

He is a better cornerback than Robinson and makes a fraction of his pay. Its a no brainer to me. Cut Dunta loose. I can live without his 1 int, 8 pd, and 3 self knockouts a season.

Dunta isnt a bad football player but we will never run the kind of scheme he needs to be successful. He is a press corner stuck on a soft zone defense. Bvg, Nolan, Smitty, it doesnt matter, when we play the best teams we will never press. Love his swagger and hits but he is the other teams go to guy when they need a first down.

McClain has the goods, he is our next Grimes. We can keep him for cheap for most of his prime

I like McClain and I definitely like Robinson. I would seperate with Robinson, only if the money saved was used on the D-line. The Falcons could afford to have McClain or Owens at NB if we keep, Grimes, Samuels, and a nasty pass rush and run stuffers emerges. Not enough time for QBs to get it off and no more pulling LBs and DBs in for run support and pass rush as often.

I'd take McClain over RobbinUs any day.

McClain - 3 starts, 676 snaps, +7.5 PFF coverage rating, 61 tackles, 0 FF, 1 FR, 0 sacks, 1 hit, 2 hurries, 1 INT, 10 PDs, 64.8% completion% allowed, 422 pass yards allowed, 0 TDs allowed, 75.0 passer rating allowed, $500K cap hit

Numbers dont lie. Plus Grimes would be on the outside anyway.

Bobby Mac is a beast. Great find by TD. I honestly think our secondary would be fine with him playing on the outside along with Asante. It might even be better to let Grimes walk, cut Dunta and draft a good corner like Trufant or Alford. Grimes and Dunta are expendable at this point.

I dont think i could trust a nickle package of samuel, mcclain, and a rookie.

what about owens at the nickel, owens has gotten much better and looks really good when playing in the nickle. I wouldnt be too opposed to seeing asante mcclain and owens playing the nickle package

Falcons got 11 picks and free agency. The combine is showing lots of talent on the defense. Falcons are **** close to squared away at offense outside of mr2. Hopefully we get lucky and get the hall of famer draft.
