Highest Tackle Rate

69 posts in this topic

I don't know if this has already been discussed, but Olukun had the third highest tackle rate in the NFL last year behind only Vander Esch and Leonard per NFL Network.   I am pretty excited about how good this defense could be if they can stay healthy.

Nice. Just more evidence TD and co are slaying it. 

And I recall when we drafted Gage and Foye posters bemoaning the notion TD was yet again wasting late round picks on what could only ever be special teams players. 

I pushed back on that, asking how they are concluding such nonsense. To be sure, I  had no idea Foye would play like this, and Gage is even showing he might be able to play snaps at receiver. I’m surprised they are both looking so good.

Late round picks becoming contributors. Just more shine. More icing on the cake. We need those guys. Solid all around.

I’m still shocked fans are still trying to escort TD to the stateline.

Only thing he hasn’t done is win it all he’s pretty much done everything else as a GM.

I’d be worried about these fans that doubt the guys ability to do this job considering he’s been light years ahead of anyone else we’ve had.

Hasn't he won GM of the year twice?

Let’s hope TD can carry on without Scott Pioli....that’s my only concern. 

Foye will only get better

I was thinking the same thing. Let’s hope. This coming draft will tell

If he starts (i dont see why he wouldn't) this defense is going to be so fast. We will have some really smart players on the field as well. Foye showed he was worth picking up last year.

Mike Mayock had Gage listed as one of his top (100) draft prospects for 2018. He has all the measurables to be a really good WR. 

The 2018 draft will wind-up producing more Starters, than the 2016 Draft (did not say it was better yet, but will produce higher number of starting players).

Given what we already saw of rookie Foye, which to me is astounding given him playing at Yale,  and what we are hearing about Russell Gage out of OTAs, the 2018 draft is starting to shape up as a phenomenal haul for talent. 

No question Ridley is the real deal, Senat has already proven to be at very  least a rotational DL, Ito Smith I freaking LOVE, so it Oliver can prove himself a starter wow what a draft

Lol at people who think this. TD was good before Pioli and will be good after Pioli. Who hired Pioli away?

Sure has and has adapted well to change not many will dare mention that.In a league where the environment is always changing our GM has done a pretty decent job adapting and keeping this team competitive.There are far more ups than downs.But for a bit of better decision making on the field I’d be escorting a few of these doubters to the state line before TD lol.

Sick I think he was pretty decent before Pioli was here and that’s not saying he won’t be a loss.As long as DQ is clear and the message doesn’t change to what sought of players he wants I think he’ll be ok.

Just think of Piolis farewell gift is loading up this Oline for the next decade fingers crossed.I mean we lost Caldwell and Snead in a short time and managed to stay a float.We still have plenty of experience in that scouting room even though Pioli has left.

See this is where the naysayers have to eat it when it comes to signing our premier talent.Who gives a flying F**k about the salary cap if we keep drafting guys like you mention.

This too me is the key for the Falcons so called lack or size of a SB window.Stack the roster with developed talent,pay the cornerstones of it,make some tough decisions.Yes good players will be let go and keep moving foward.

All these dumb *** threads about the cap and we can’t hold this who cares if we keep drafting well.
