That’s awesome., I’m jealous.  Were you there for the infamous crossing of the Mara when the crocs take care of business?

Unfortunately the bulk of the wildebeest migration crossed the river 2 weeks before I got there! Words cannot describe what it’s like out there, raw, deadly, brutal, emotional, overwhelming, spiritual.....it runs the gamut of emotion and pulls you into the now.

I saw about 30 yards from my safari van, a pride of 11 lions take down a 3000lb Cape Buffalo. Took them over an hour, it was savage yet beautiful at same time.

For instance, have you ever seen a lake with millions of  flamingos in it? The magnitude of it is utterly mind blowing.

We have had a Super Bowl roster for the last three years.  Nothing has changed outside of adding more quality depth.

Plenty of contenders to represent the NFC in the SB. Rams and Eagles are the two most recent NFC champs and they still have talented rosters; New Orleans has everything Atlanta has and is th

I think we can be a contender once again. Keep the defense healthy but I think this 'upgraded' OL must EXECUTE and show they're an upgraded line. We MUST convert the 3rd/4th downs with less than two yards into first downs and especially in the Red Zone/Goal Line.  IF we can do that, then that tilts the time of possession to our favor and impacts BOTH defenses leaving ours fresh and rested and leaving the opposition's tired and sucking wind in the 4th quarter.  Do that, and we're at least a 12-4 team next season and back into the playoff/SB hunt.

I think we would have possibly won the SB last year if we were healthy. Matt Ryan was on fire!

Cape Buffalo is more dangerous than a lion.  Now I’m really jealous.  Instead of training with Seals or Embracing The Suck, Quinn ought to bring the team for a front row view of the Crossing

What gets a lot of the stupid tourists is the hippos. They see these big fat blobs sunning on the beach, go up to take pictures, and realize hippos are angry, will charge you and  can run much faster than Tyreek Hill or Devin McCourty. 

Hippos kill more tourists than any other animal in the Serengeti, but you are right, Cape Buffalos are just as dangerous. It’s so dangerous out there, an ostrich will chase you down and one peck to the head can kill a human.

That’s natural selection, bro.  The only animal I would fear more than a hippo is a polar bear

Yeah, as deadly as many of the African animals can be, if you upset  a grizzly bear or polar bear in the wild, there is little you can do to not die barbaric death over the ensuing 5 minutes!

Said it all off season it’s not n the field where the Falcons will make the biggest gains it’s off.If these coaches can make the correct decisions he’ll yes the Falcons have the talent no doubt in my mind.

Coaches have to get there **** together and come to the party.

I feel better going into this year than I did last year specifically due to coaching.

Defensively I agree. Offensively I didn’t have any major issues with Sark. He had blips here and there but overall player execution was his biggest downfall imo

Well, Coaching is one of the big reasons for me also.. But add that to one of the best Drafts and FA players picked up and The players coming back that we missed so much last year... that's why I'm all in too.. That is 3 huge reasons.. Coaching change ,, Great Draft .. .FA players picked up... and those who were hurt last year coming back healthy ,,  That is a lot of  improvements.. If Ryan stayes healthy.. It will happen..

  Think about this,, Freeman,, one of my all time favorites,, I was his biggest fan on this board when we drafted him,, you that were here Know I'm telling the truth.. Now we can give Freeman breaks and just use him for a change of pace back,, then let Ollison and Hill pound the opposing D#s ,, wear them down,, then past the ball.. It will now be like a Chess game instead of checkers. We have not only the team,, We have the backups that are as good as the starters.. In every position other than QB,, and that's why I said if Ryan stays healthy and on the field.. He should because of the huge upgrade on the OL..  F.O. knew exactly what to do this year to give us the best chance ever for a huge run NOW.:hurr:
