Thus Far, Our Free Agency Has Been A Big Zero.


Recommended Posts

I find it funny how you bitched all last offseason that we needed to draft a center and now you want someone to beat out the center we drafted last year.

You complain for the sake of complaining.

You're just too stupid to understand my comment.

Jesus Christ big rob.

He might fix our offensive line woes.

Since you seem unable to follow more than one post at a time, here is my opinion of Konz.

C is wholly reliant upon Konz playing up to his potential. In order to do that, he needs to play lower, less upright, and with more leverage. He got away with stand-up muggings in college against relatively weaker, smaller defensive linemen. Even the ones he played that are now in the NFL are bigger, stronger, more well-trained and coached than they were. Konz CAN be a pro bowl caliber C. I just didn't see much indication last season that some bad and sloppy habits absolutely will be overcome.

I think you are wrong. I think we were blowing holes in the line last season but Turner took too long to get there and they closed up. We will see how S-Jax does. Also, McClure was done. I think Konz, having that first year under his belt, will play much better. Guess we'll see.

Did Rodgers also take too long to hit the hole? What about Snelling? Because every single back was getting slammed like a porn star in the backfield, especially in short yardage.

Does he play RG? Can he beat Konz at C? Clabo at RT?

Answer those, and you'll have my answer.

Can he help secure the pocket - Yes

Does he provide yet ANOTHER receiving threat - Yes

Does he aid the rushing attack - Yes

We have a good O-Line, other key pieces such as Jackson, Ewing maximise the O-Line potential, you can't simply overlook every other piece on offense, just because we dont have THE BEST line in the league.

If it's 3rd and 1 and Turner is lined up in the backfield, you know exactly what is coming. If it's 3rd and 1 and Sjax is lined up in the backfield you can't just stack the middle of the box for a Turner blow right into the middle of the line. You have to be aware that Sjax can also catch the ball. This will take some of the pressure off of our line in short yardage situations.

I bet you're just a pleasure in real life.

You weaselly little rat. Answer the question I asked if you're going to quote it.

Yes, Turner was washed up and one-dimensional. I wanted to cut him last off-season.

But Turner's run-in with father time does not explain Jaquizz and Snelling--- both also threats in the receiving game--- also being stuffed behind the line of scrimmage. So if the line is fine, why were they also getting hit behind the line? Why were they also unable to find holes?

Answer the question or STFU and GTFO.

How many 3rd and 1's did you see Quizz or Snelling line up for? Because they were few and very far between.

Again, you didn't answer the question. Answer the question. And I didn't say anything about exclusively short yardage. Look in the post you quoted. Where did I say one freaking word about only this being a short yardage issue. No matter the down/distance, there were very few holes for any back.

Once again: answer the question or STFU and GTFO you filthy detestable worm.

Yes, I definetly saw the back hitting the wall on the line, but I also saw Turner and Quizz bust some huge runs off. You can't just discount them and say they didn't happen. I think it's possible with McClure retiring and us shuffleing our line around, we are going to be a better O line. Just my opinion but we'll have to wait and see. Also, I trust TD to build this team right. So far he's done better that anyone I've see in my 32 years of being a Falcons fan.

Thanks for giving me the ammo to get rid of you for a little while.

Koetter's offense doesn't even use a FB on most plays.

Koetter couldn't be more clear, he uses the strengths of the players he has. Last season he didn't have a very good FB, hence the lack of use of one.

As another point, Jackson hasn't ever had a good O-Line when he was in St. Louis, yet has been stellar... care to explain?

Is this the same "Raider Ball" offense that you claimed would never work with Matt Ryan?

Moron.

Show me a quote where I said "it would never work". I said that Ryan was a good enough QB to do well in any system, but that he would be dominant in a true WCO. Of course, a brainless moron like you can't really understand any concept that requires actual thought.
