How Do You Feel About This Upcoming Season?


Recommended Posts

I know we go through this every season but I really feel good about this year. Quinn looks like a coach, acts like a coach and talks like a coach. Plus we know he's a SUPERBOWL WINNING COACH. I like the coaches he brought with him. I don't know about y'all but this feels good to me. What do you think?

I'm optimistic, but it's weird. With all the good news out of TC sometimes I feel like everyone's getting their **** together and we're gonna dominate the league. But then other times I think that, even thought we're playing well against each other, we're still dog **** relative to the rest of the league. We won't know until preseason games I suppose.

Also, another thing that I read negatively was Quinn's most recent press conference when one of the reporters asked how our defense stacked up against the Seahawks defense. Quinn declined to answer, and I think I saw in his eyes that he knew we weren't near as good as them but he had to be diplomatic about it. Glad he believes in the team though.

No o-line, no LBs, TEs are all former back-ups, RBs already hurt, and outside of Julio our other WRs are a rookie and two over the hill vets..........But we do have a new coaching staff AGAIN, Yea I'm thinking Superbowl. When your front office cant draft and all else fails fire the coaches and do the same thing all over again. The Home Depot/Arthur Blank way.

I can understand the concern on the OL, That is my only concern, even thou I think they will be much better than last year. But for you to say no LBs. I have no idea how you can say that. This is going to be the best group of LBs we've maybe ever had. huh.png

11-5..

.Freeman,Coleman get the running on track, the OL gel's by week 4. Hageman is going to blow up,Beasly and Claiborne combine for 15 sacks.

Scho and Beer combine for 10 sacks ,no ones going to throw @Trufant ,Worr,Reed and Durant stop the TE from gaining 15 yards on third down.

Roddy becomes a true threat again, Hardy and Hank,make a great #3-4. Jones leads all Wr's in yards, Ryan has 4800 yards and 32 TD's...with handfull to the TE's, and a couple to the FB's.

So yeah...I'm pumped!

I've said it numerous times in here throughout the preseason: this is the dawning of a new era in Falcons football. We finally have the nucleus of a SB organization, from the top down through the coaching staff. The players are a great group, and we have youth and talent in key positions. There's always the possibility of some more additions during this pre-season, but the players we have right now can make the play-offs.

The OL is a concern sure, but it's not like the unit is completely devoid of talent and the ZBS is going to be a big boost to the running game once the guys get in synch. I'm thinking 11-5 and a couple of play-off wins as a reasonable prediction. But whatever the won-loss record ends up this season, I now believe we've got a SB in our future and that's one heck of a great feeling.

I think the greatest determinant of success or failure this year will be the same as every year during the Smith era. Injuries. During Smitty's first five seasons the Falcons were among the league leaders in fewest player-games lost to injury. During the last two seasons, the Falcons were among the leagues most injury plagued teams.

Football Outsiders has some pretty compelling stats on this stuff.

I'm excited.

It is a division we went 5-1 in last year. I feel we should put a better product out there this year.

Not a fan of a handful of our out of conference games.

Worried about the OL. Was hoping it would be addressed in draft but it was not.

The first four games will be huge if they want to make a legit postseason run.

I'm honestly waiting will I see Quinn's team on the field, before I forge much of an opinion. I tend to be more of an optimist by trade, but I'm kinda reserved, until I can really get a feel for "his team."

As far as season predictions go, I make a habit of never doing them. I simply go into each game, believing and hoping that we can win. Whatever the outcome, I try to move on to the next game, with the same mindset.

I'm more excited about how I think we are going to play.

I think we will finally play a physical style of football on offense and defense that I have always wanted us to play.

I also feel that this team will have will have an identity for a change. For the past couple of years, you never knew what team was going to show up week in and week out or what we were trying to be.

I like the hire (I was pulling for Quinn even before the team was) I like the new personnel especially on defense. I am optimistic that the ZBS will hide some OL deficiencies and the running game will be improved (but will the OL protect?) all in all I could see 10 wins as realistic, but happy as a clam if we get above that!

I was just wondering who the two "over the hill vets" are Roddy can still play and maybe you are also referring to 26 year old Hankerson.

I'm optimistic during preseason but when it's game time during the regular season I get pessimistic as hale. Thats when you find out oh chit SJax really doesn't have anything left in the tank, OLine is still like a turnstile, we still don't have a pass rush, Worrilow is just a feel good UDFA story, you really need 2 good DB's in today's NFL, that 2nd round draft really isn't going to contribute this year, there was a reason KC let Jackson go, etc etc.

They will have some growing pains, easy schedule helps but think it takes 4-6 weeks of the regular season for them to find themselves....
