Where is TAKK?? Our #1 Draft Choice is MIA on the field.


Recommended Posts

The Bust I'm talking about is not about play or stats, it's the broken shoulder he played on for 2 years at UCLA. Then he had surgery, came and played some games getting 40ish snaps and his single sack against the Lions, is now Limited because of that shoulder after only 5 games and down from 40ish snaps to only 19 against NE. He was limited (shoulder) in practice last week and game time.

You really are a one trick pony aren't you?

Yeah, you're right. Takk's shoulder could be a chronic problem. We drafted a great DE from Tennessee once, Will Overstreet. He had a preseason injury where his shoulder dislocated. He tried to come back, but it kept popping out of socket He never started. Ever. So you could be right about Takk.

BUT WHAT F'ING GOOD DOES IT DO FOR YOU TO CONSTANTLY BRING THIS UP IN THREAD AFTER THREAD? Are you WISHING this happens???

I can WISH all I like for things to happen and if I was any good at it I wouldn't be talking to you on this board. I'm looking for an answer to my question, no one talks about, gives an explanation for, or even wants to hear. I want to know if we wasted $10 million on a speed guy that can't play. There were many on this board against trading up to get McKinley. Looks like they were right. Seems no one wants to talk about it though. Sark? Now  you can talk about him all day long, and his 4th and 1 jet sweep call, but bring up Takk and everyone gets all defensive (pun intended). Simple question, is Takk's shoulder a problem again. Yes, No or I don't know would be a fine answer.

Don’t know if his shoulder is a big problem or not. The kid played all last year in college with a bum shoulder and elevated his play. So I doubt the shoulder is that big of an issue.

his issue is he’s a very raw but talented rookie pass rusher, most of whom take some time. See Vic beasley’s  Rookie season.

I don't know. Neither do you. Neither does Takk. Neither does any doctor on the Falcons staff or in the entire universe. You're freaking out and demanding an answer to a question that CAN NOT BE ANSWERED at this point.

What good does that do you or anyone? Unless you're actually a fan of another team trying to create more discontent on AFMB.

The Falcons have plenty to worry about right now. We might as well worry about the things we CAN control (play calling, bad passes, dropped passes) rather than things we can't (injuries).

They took an MRI as part of the drafting process, the Doctor said he couldn't believe he played for two years on that bum shoulder. If you don't like my posts ignore them. There is that feature.

Takk is actually producing good pressure on a per rush basis. Usually that begins to translate in year 2.

Takk took 19 snaps vs NE down from 48 vs Buffalo. Do you hear his name being called during the game or after the game or the morning after the game? He was listed as limited (shoulder) in practice and game last week.

I think he ****** up his shoulder again, getting hit in the NFL isn't like getting hit in College. Let's see if tomorrow he practices or is 'limited' again. For the 10th time I'm not talking about his play. 

I don't care if he goes on IR, acting like someone is a bust because they didn't have a ton of stats as a rookie is ignorant. Let's wait til year 3 to make a final call on whether Takk is a bust or not bud.

Listed as shoulder limited for the Pats game, didn't see him on the field.

Was our #1 pick a bust with a chronic shoulder problem?

We are entering week 7, where is this supposed Pass rushing superstar? Not next to Beasley putting pressure on QB's learning the system. 

Quinn didn't say a word in the presser, and no reporter asked the question. Strange. 

Your question whether you admit it or not is basically you saying "TAKK IS A BUST BECAUSE HE HASN'T BEEN DESTROYING THE OTHER TEAMS QB". 

Your wrong about that, if that's what you actually think, at least it appears that is what you are implying in a nice way to save face without actually saying it. 

Here's the thing you have to remember with Takk, he was hurt before he played his first game, meaning the upside on him is only going to get better as time goes on. Also, he's a rookie meaning the upside on him is going to get better as time goes on. 

AND OH DID I MENTION HE IS ROOKIE?  

Rookies don't come into the NFL regardless of whatever HYPE they have and start dominating the league with their play skills. 

One example would be : Jadeveson Clowney, he was hyped as the unstoppable force coming to the NFL. Yeah, he was hurt coming into the league, just like Takk, but Clowney even though he's played healthy afterwards in several games, he's been less than stellar. That doesn't mean Takk won't be the same way, Takk is a rookie, so the one sack he got a few games back was really a great sign of things to come. 

Just my thoughts.

Woah wait but I've been told by countless others you're just a hating scrub who lives and dies by your analytics and would in no way defend a rookie who everyone says you supposedly hate.

Comparing him to Beasley is nuts. Beasley wasn't as bad as some here said.

The only thing Beasley failed to measure up to is silly high fan expectations with the whole "10 sack" quote. He had a solid year despite the ordinary stat sheet. He grew a lot in his 2nd training camp which is very typical. Wait...maybe I am saying there is a comparison there.  Time will tell.

100% Fair assessment. I said if Takk gets 1.5 he will exceed my expectations.
