What Will Be Quinn's First Big Mistake?


Recommended Posts

FFS70.

You are right on the money with this and TDs obsession with JJ

is alarming to say the least.

We got lucky on a Coin toss by getting Ryan.

With that said, a megatron Contract with Jones will

train wreck the team worse than YKW7.

Yeah I don't get it bro.

Assuming Beasley's first year cap hit will be around $2.6M when he signs, Our Top 51 cap split will still be too imbalanced:

2015 Falcon Projected Top 51 Cap Splits

Offense (23) - 62%

Defense (25) - 33%

Specialists (3) - 5%

Signing Julio to a Megatron type contract will further exacerbate this imbalance. And the Juliottes still wonder why our defense sucked monkey balls. Let dude play out his rookie contract and go from there.

Do you have the splits for other teams? I'm sure almost every team pays more for offense since QBs generally make more than any other player.

You have to calculate them manually. I'm gonna let you do that.

The last time I did it, I calculated it for the last four remaining playoff teams (NE, SEA, GB, IND). Theres were nowhere near as imbalanced as ours. In fact I think I remember a couple of those teams being weighted heavier on the defensive side of the roster. We'll be waiting on your report. Please deliver it in the next hour. Thanks in advance.

There's a breakdown with OFF vs DEF

TOP 5 Offensive Caps:

1 Philadelphia Eagles (76mil / 58mil)

2 Washington Redskins (75mil / 58mil)

3 Denver Broncos (73mil / 59mil)

4 Atlanta Falcons (73mil / 41mil)

5 Minnesota Vikings (73mil / 58mil)

And before they get Russell signed, the Seahawks have spent the least amount on their offense with a 44mil / 75mil split

And we're dead last in defensive cap by 5 mil, behind the Patriots with their 46mil in Defensive spending.

It's interesting that the two Super Bowl teams last year are also the most imbalanced in terms of cap spending on each side of the ball so far this year.

Easy to do that when two of the four have rookie-deal QB's.

He already made his first mistske....to think he's better than coach smith.

He may not think it, But I can tell you right now, He is ! And you And every other Falcon Fan will know this by the end of His first year to coach this team.. And when you do,, just remember , Quinn told him what kind of players he wanted in this draft. We will win more than twice as many games as Smith did last year.. I like Smith as a person and a man,, But I would not want him as a Coach, Never did , and never will. He just did not have a plan and is not a natural teacher as Quinn is,, Plus the players will take Quinn seriously.

TD is still the best in Drafting players. If he was the one who wanted Smith as HC here, Yes , that was a huge mistake... But when it comes to the draft, TD is awesome... Tell him exactly what type player we need and he will find those players... TD is tops in drafting ,, That's why he is still here,,,, Thankfully. Blank is not stupid,, And if TD was the person you guys think he is,, Trust me,, He'd been fired 5 years ago.

What are you basing this on Nut?

Buddy has missed on Sackmaker, Jelly and Featherspoon in the first. Maybe even Jake. Passed on better players in every round and never hit on a low round gem. He's also traded about 15 picks for eight players. Many who were meh. I think Dimi was awful at drafting. His drafting authority was delegated to his boss Pioli this year. Sad thing is he had similar free agency gaffes.

His drafting authority was not handed down to Pioli. All Pioli did was do the pre-draft research. The actual draft was handled by TD, who has the final say over which name gets written on the card.

One thing to consider on your playoff team comparison is the Seattle and Indianapolis QB's are still on their rookie contracts. When Wilson and Luck get their 2nd contract then it would be a better statistic.
