Umhm...eye test.....might help if the eyes could process what was actually happening...just a hunch

I bet the eye test just missed the second holding call forced by Vic huh??

Eye test showed that Vic was stopped dead in his tracks until Takk forced Smith to scramble in that direction.

"When a team exercises the option, it becomes guaranteed for injury only. If the player is on the team’s roster at the start of the League Year in his option season, his salary becomes fully guaranteed for skill, cap and injury."

They can still dump him. 5th years are for the teams benefit. Not the players. 

 If they were not planning on keeping him....they probably would had traded him when teams asked about him.

 

he is going to be a falcon next year

Apparently the eye test needs an actual eye test

Cool. Play the Condescending *** hole card. 

God this place has gotten so unbearably pissy. 

Beasley was the player I wanted in that draft and was one of his biggest defenders until this season. At a certain point you just need to accept when a player did not pan out the way you expected or wanted.

Or the offers weren't enough to punt on having another potential pass rusher this season.

I think falcons fans should get to kick every media member who makes a "Julio has no TDs" joke, square in the nuts. 

We have one of the best offenses in the league. Clearly we know what we're doing...

Or just having him in a position of no depth for the rest of the season is more valuable than a 5th or whatever:shrug:

Or they have no backup right now, no real way to get one, and didn't want to take away a starting player while they're trying to make the playoffs.

Theh didn't trade Duke Riley either. Bet they'd love to pay him 10 mill next year.

Like hate him or not we don't have a replacement for what Vic does on the roster. Unless some team lost thier minds and offered something way more than he's worth he was never going to be traded.

No one (as far as we know)  tried to trade for Riley....and Riley is not due 10 million

I'd be interested to know what they might have done if Bruce Irvin was cut pre deadline.

:doh: cause that's the point.....

They wouldnt have traded Riley in that situation because they need him. Just like with Beasley.... 

Does that mean Duke is good? That Duke is worth 10 million? No... 

But for some reason, it does for vic.

Cool so he forced a double team.... Good job vic

Crawford dropped back into coverage so the G that would have blocked him went to the closest pass rusher, who just happened to be Beasley. It was also unnecessary since he was already blocked and not going anywhere.
