Irvin and Takk bring an attitude that I like in my defensive players...

We need a few more of those...

it's not a popular idea but if TB was to release McCoy and we picked him up, we could probably have, Grady, Crawford, Senat, McCoy, Irvin, Means, and Takk all in the rotation and if Vic is retained at a reasonable rate, with Debo and Campbell, that's a pretty nice jump off point to turn this defense around, and that's not even including draft picks

Suprised that Garland was the #17 guard.....must've been a down year at guard across the league 

that's funny because Garland was bad. there was a reason he got benched but he somehow had a better grade than Wes. maybe they take off a whole lot of points for penalties.

Brooks Reed: 189 snaps, 11 tackles, 4 mistackles, 10 stops, 5.4 % stops. 

Takk : 188 snaps, 10 tackles, 1 mistackle, 8 stops, 4.3 Stop%.

Vic: 209 snaps, 8 tackles , 7 mistackles, 7 stops,  3.3% stops.

Steven Means: 69 snaps, 11 tackles, 0 mistackles, 11 stops, stop%: 14.5 %.

Shelby: 60 snaps, 9 tackles, 0 mistackles, 5 stops, stop%:8.3%.

It’s obvious, Steven Means had more tackles, more stops than all other edge defenders in limited snaps. Why did it take so long for DQ to put Means in the line up?  What happened to DQ playing more young guys over veterans  myth? 

If Falcons are negotiating a new deal with Vic Beasley, they need a discount for having as many mistackles(7) as tackles(8).

Shelby and Means should have played more against the run than Reed. It’s time to cut Reed and give more snaps to Means. 

 

Don't know where you get your info, but your snap counts are way off.

Wes was worse, no Shraeder was. That was one of the WTF decision by DQ. Garland was pretty decent in pass protection.

I don’t pay attention to grades. They all over the place. Give me raw unfiltered stats any day, not some ones opinions.

Just FYI, the grades are developed by PFF by having one expert look at every play that any particular player has and grading it one a -2 to+2 scale.  Then another man grades the same player for every snap.  Then, a third expert watches the same tape and reconciles any differences between the first two graders.  THEN, the tape goes to a group of ex-NFL players and coaches for verification.  Sacks, for example, are not all graded the same.  Some sacks are earned and others are gimmes---tagging a fallen QB, for example.

This method seems to me a much more accurate and objective way of arriving at the worth of any particular player than some guy in his basement with a computer.

Unless they changed it this year. It’s one person grading. I remember a PFF employee who was on TATF explaining how their grading is done. You can dig up that thread, it was pretty informative. I doubt the grades are posted that fast for every play with multiple people reviewing. In any case grades have been head scratchers for a while.

Got buddy in the first edition of my offseason retooling plan. Him and Irvin. Those guys can play the run and pass and can be signed for half of Beasley's cap hit. Put em with Takk and a draft pick and I think we could wreck some QBs. I cut Beasley and Reed and let Shelby walk. It's time to get serious about both lines.

why should we keep an undersized defensive end like Takk?

just looking at the numbers we should only keep Reed and Steven means, Shelby.
