AtlantaFanatic Posted April 13, 2015 Share Posted April 13, 2015 I love this time of the year on the message boards. The polarization of the posts from everyone here is fascinating. It almost seems like nobody can agree on anything. A lot of people make some really good points and a lot of people make some pretty dumb points and both are equally as entertaining. On to my opinion:My biggest concern for my fellow Falcon fans here is the expectation of what our team will be this year. A lot of us are mad at what we did in FA because we didn't fill all the holes we have on the team. Now we are concerned with the draft because it seems impossible to fill those needs in the draft with studs, and we are correct. TD's poor drafting and the lack of development of our later round players with the previous regime has left this team with quite a few gaping holes. In fact, there are too many "holes" to fill in one offseason. We are currently lacking at LG, FS, ILB, LEO, RB, and TE. The good news is that because of better coaching or players exceeding our expectations, we may already have a couple of these positions filled if some players surprise us. Even if they don't we cannot expect us to draft those positions I mentioned with the 1st-6th round picks and have all those pics be studs. No GM is that good!This isn't a complete overhaul of our team but it's pretty close. WE WILL GO INTO THIS SEASON WITH REMAINING HOLES. There is no way around it. We cannot expect Quinn to come in here with the roster he was left and make us a deep playoff team year 1. I expect this team to go into the season with big ??? at several of those positions I mentioned. The fun part of this season for me will be going into it watching our new players at these positions and seeing how they do and if Quinn really makes that much of a difference. I'm not predicting a record this year. In fact, I'm prepared for us to suck again this season and that will be ok as long as I see some improvement in the way we play. Every new move this FO makes now, I look at as "How is this going to improve our team over the next few years?" I know it's tough guys and gals but try to be patient. This isn't our year to win a SB but if we handle the next couple of offseasons better than we have in the past, I think we could be sniffing the door to the SB again very soon.
