Atlanta Whiffed With Vic Beasley.


Recommended Posts

When I talked to Atlanta coach Dan Quinn on SiriusXM this week, it was pretty clear he wanted to improve the defense and the run game. Personally, I thought he should've addressed the latter -- not the former -- at No. 8.

Vic Beasley struck me as a major stretch there. Yes, he put on a show at the "Underwear Olympics" (also known as the NFL Scouting Combine), but I thought he was a mid-first-round talent. While Quinn can coach him up, Todd Gurley should've been the pick. The Georgia running back would've been the perfect guy to complement Matt Ryan and keep the Falcons' defense fresh -- akin to what DeMarco Murray did for Dallas last year. Atlanta does not employ a legit starting NFL running back.

This was odd. And a blown opportunity

LOL, like this fool has every watched a game or gametape of Beasley and can speak to anything about his play other then his combine and the obvious response to hate the guy who has ungodly combine results as a workout wonder

Uh.........last time I checked your home boy Hero, Gurley couldn't even perform at the Underwear Olympics.

Real durable.

When the real bullets start flying in Sept. Mr. Girlie will be on the sidelines where he'll probably spend 80% 0f his brief 2-3 yr. NFL career.

A real warrior.

I love the Beasley pick BUT I'm still scratching my head at why TD didn't move up 2 spots @6 and take Williams (then a OLB/DE in the 2nd). Maybe the Jets couldn't believe he fell to them and wasn't giving him up for anything.

Man these bum hurt analysts and their weird infatuation with us taking Gurley are cracking me up. Its like we automatically fail unless we take Gurley and that's the absolute only thing we could have done right. Freaking weirdos man. 30 other teams didn't get him either but for some reason it is u forgiveable that we didn't. lol

The underwear olympics thing that gets thrown out about freak athletes doesn't apply when a dude leads has massive TFL stats. In fact, Clemson's team totals in this category over the last two years were the best in the NCAA. By 31 tackles for loss. That's how much of a disruptive factor Beasley is.

Bucs should have taken Gurley 1st overall....

From what we've heard the Jets were asking too much. They knew Williams' value so they were probably demanding our 2nd or next year's 1st or more.

That's what I'm thinking too. That kind of price is like moving from 8th to 3rd.

I didn't see ANY highlights (NFLN) on him when we selected him as they did the others...or did I miss that?

Nope. They went right to trashing Beasley and blasting that false outrage we didn't draft Gurley after our pick. Which was pretty much the only one to get it period. This whole media hating on Atlanta thing is strange.

It would have been a better pick than the one they made. laugh.png

I seen that he's already acting immature by post a pic of himself with crab legs, 5 min after he got drafted. Then took it down. What a dumb@ss. I think I hate him more than Cam now, if that's possible.

Holy $hit. Who was it that put into everyone's head we were gonna get Gurley. We needed a pass rusher more than a RB and that's what we got. I'm so sick of everyone crying over Gurley's nuts lol. We don't even know how he'll hold up because of his knee! Anyone remember Marcus Lattimore? People are so dumb.
