No Week 10 against the Saints.

You only have to be out 8 weeks. He went on IR after week 1 vs the Vikings.

Oh no a rookie tackle getting whooped by a proven veteran. Don’t get mad at Mcgardy get mad at kotter for not helping his young lineman. 

Our OL this year is the worst I’ve seen since 2013-14. Makes last year’s look like a Pro Bowl unit.

TATF: "TD is such a ******* idiot because he refuses to invest in and fix the OL." *TD signs two starting caliber veteran NFL offensive linemen and drafts two more in the first round." TATF:

IR-Return Designation

Not everyone who ends up on IR has to see their season end for good. Players must remain on IR for eight weeks before being eligible to rejoin their teams in Week 9 via the IR-Return Designation. The NFL changed the IR-return designation in 2017 so that teams are allowed to bring two players back from IR. Previously, the rule allowed just one player to return from the list.

This was a great change for teams as most clubs have more than one injured player capable of returning at some point in the season.

In 2016, the Bengals had an unfortunate situation in which running back Cedric Peerman and cornerback William Jackson III were both healthy enough to come off of IR, but Peerman ended up getting the one to get the only nod. Had this new IR-return rule been in place, both players would have been able to come off IR.

Last year, the NFL changed the IR with return designation so that you no longer have to designate the player who will get the designation at the time they are placed on the list. Now, teams can bring back any two players they've placed on IR at any time after the eight week mandate to be on the list has been met.

Previously, if a team wanted to use the one return designation spot, they had to declare it when the player was placed on IR. Now, they can just see who is getting healthy quickly, and take them off IR after they’ve been on the list for eight weeks (or more).

One constraint here is that a player must be on the 53-man roster in Week 1 to be eligible for the IR designation to return. That means, anyone who was placed on IR before roster cuts were made to trim the roster down to 53 players is not eligible.

FYI...the 21 days don't begin until Quinn deem Lindstrom as one of their two designees to return from IR. Once he starts practicing Quinn has 21 day to activate him to the 53 man roster. Until then he can remain on IR.

Kudos for using the search option

it is a combination of a lot of things. Our two studs are not playing at the level they need to be playing at (Mack and Matthews). Combine that with a struggling rookie and two guards who are barely adequate and you have a terrible offensive line. Then, you have a play caller who loves his long developing plays and it is ugly...

Falcons might have the opportunity to get another great OL in this years draft. Andrew Thomas from UGA and Tristan Wirfs, two top tier OL may fall in their lap come draft day, they are NFL plug and play ready. McGary was another example of Falcons poor front office busting a nut over nothing. They reached for a reach. Falcons GOTTA get rid of McKay, Webster, Emry and Sabo they are worthless as boobs on a bull.

It's what you get with years of bad roster building and needing to depend on rooks as saviours. I'd cut Mack, Carpenter and Sombrero next year, move Lindstrom to center, McGary to guard, Bloodline to RT, draft the UGA tackle and add a young mid level vet swing guy.

so you want a Rookie to manage LT... and move 3 players out of position ... so that would make them rookies in that position.. a rookie OL... yeah that is the way to go....

When you are more than desperate for any simulation of a pass rush, drafting the UGA tackle would be a horrible move...

When you are desperate to fill gaping holes with rookies you make picks like Vic Teasley. The draft should be a long term roster building solution. Not a hole plugging solution.

Drafting high, the Falcons need to get a DE or DT.  There are enough guys available that picking one of them would be a "long term roster building solution".  Sorry to break the news to you, but drafting another OL high in the draft is not the right move this year.

Like his plan is worse than our GMs this year?  We signed three free agents (Sambrailo, Carpenter, Brown) then drafted two more OL in the first round only to end up with the worst line in the NFL.  

Now, we get to do it again next year.

Falcons front office aren't football people, they are a silver spoon feed ambulance chasing lawyer, a mountain bike riding preppy, a strength and conditioning coach, a RB coach and a has been from the 1970s and we wonder why we fail drafting linemen? Here's a cheat sheet to help them out. Mack is OLD, Matthews is SOFT, and McGary is Green.  Cut Mack, trade Matthews once his number don't hurt the cap. Get Ben Garland back  in  free agency for center. Draft Andrew Thomas from UGA or Tristan Wirfs from Iowa and get a whole new front office with some scouts that have some manhood. Like Tmodel66 says it is absolutely RIDICULOUS that we picked up three free agents for o-line and then drafted two more and our o-line STILL sucks. And we think changing the COACH will make us win, get real. Come on man. Falcons roster is TURIBLE.  Coach and front office are trash. Whole thing is an embarrassment to the city. Blank should be ashamed, it is a poor reflection on him and his business acumen to have a franchise this poorly assembled.

Not to bad of an idea Refried Beans. But I am not sure about letting Mathews go. He would look way better with a competent guard next to him. But if no defensive player is worth our pick I would select Andrew Thomas, make Mcgary our swing if he couldn’t transition to guard. And see how it played out with Thomas & Mcgary’s development before deciding on Mathews future. Or trade back and get two 1st round draft picks, possibly more.
