Enough With The Jj Trade Depth Connections.

Seriously what are the odds the 2nd, 1st, and two FOURTH rounders would have been the solid replacements for the guys who went down last year.

Especially considering td is a bust machine and smith won't give anyone opportunity because he doesn't want to interfere with his special teams.

Here's what caused our problems

1. **** load of injuries

2. Awful game planning

3. Soft players due to Smith babying everyone

4. Questionable play calling

5. Steven Jackson dropped easy td pass.

The correlation between jj trade and depth is coincidence. The fact is, if we had those four extra players, they'd be soft and/or injured too.

No jj would be on another team never having missed a game breaking bookoos of records and shred would be trying to convince everyone Johnathan Baldwin was just as good

Well if the tires flew off or something, I'd be glad I traded it Away for the yugo

that's the wrong way to look at it. you all didn't give Cleveland a piece of garbage that self destructed on its own....the GM ruined a great thing

so the wrecking analogy is far more accurate

But then again would you consider julio a yugo and random draft picks a mercedes?

true enough.

but saying that the trade was good with the reasoning that the Browns ****** up the picks they received is wrong because the Browns **** everything up

I think to say the draft didn't have an effect on depth is short sighted.

These days you can get quality players through the 4th round.

And if you think the falcons would've picked the same flops the browns chose how can you assume the falcons are gonna get anyone to help the team going forward in this draft.

Might as well trade the whole draft for clowney.

TD has never picked good depth anyway. Picks were toss-ups.

What if two of those five picks turned out to be starting oline players, one a stud running back, one a decent tight end or pass rusher and one a flop? Do you think you guys would have won more than four games last year or made those 10 yards the year before?

you're approaching this wrong.

look at the pics cleveland made with what we gave up?

our 1 beat their 4,

it was a good trade.

Flawed logic. The Falcons needs would have been different and so would each and every selection. There is no way to know who the Falcons would have picked.

knowing td's picks thats wishful thinking especially since julio was the reason we had such a big lead against SF in the first place.....180 yards 2 td's....we didnt lose that game because of a lack of talent.....the matt ryan fumble was a crucial mistake.

Team depth is everything in the NFL. Injuries are going to happen. Depth comes from later round draft choices. It's why teams don't easily part with them, especially before draft day trades. You get young talent at bargain prices, and that is crucial when working your cap. The idea its OK to trade away 4 picks for one stud player isn't something teams can do unless they are "that close" to a SB. Either that or they need excitement to fill the stadium. Not saying you shouldn't do it, but I believe the Falcons have needs in the defensive backfield, defensive front 7, offensive line (maybe twice) tight end and RB depth. Clowney will solve one of those issues.

Just playing devil's advocate a bit with the 'what ifs', but I didn't know about the lack of trust in TD's draft picking ability; last year was decent.

Exactly! I was just going to post the very same sentiment.
