1-2 Win teams and who they play the rest of the season (pick scenarios)

91 posts in this topic

Im sure at some point the planets will align a team will have significant injuries and have a fumble or interception getting the Falcons a win,but don't see it happening twice likely one ofthe Bucs games or the Jaguar.

After Saturday heard a few Gator fans would take him back as DC

And look how things turned out this year.

Just goes to show any wins will mean absolutely nothing.

Everyone is still getting fired. People are still getting cut.

Falcons will still have no cap space.

The Falcons need every pick they can get and picking higher in every round would not hurt

Falcons probably need to trade picks for established players a la TonyG, Asante, Foxy and Levitre. Let the trading team eat the dead money and bring in NFL players that can play on day one. Not rooks that will take two or three years to get up to speed. Yall Tanker Boys will be disappointed because nobody at the Branch will be tankin. Tank on.

They need to tank because TD is likely to be the one picking and the higher he picks the less likely we are going to get Troffed again not only that my restless friend this franchise needs the shot in the arm a top pick may bring. A top 3 pick also brings the possibility of trading down for more picks, which lowers the Troffed equation as well. They need picks for the defense and likely need an RB that can carry the load among a plethora of other positions. But they can't miss on those first 3 picks again and TD needs all the help he can get.

OK then hold your breath and wait for them to tank.

The higher you go in the draft the better the historical success rate for just about every position. Realize you are hoping for meaningless wins, and justifying it just because no prospect under the sun is a sure thing.

Look at where Danielle Hunter was selected, and tell me how other third round defensive ends compare historically to those who were chosen at the top of the first round.

By your thought pattern, a higher pick should still be more desirable than a lower pick because you can always trade down and amass more picks, meaning you have more opportunities to hit on a draft pick.

And criticizing Quinnen for not dominating as a rookie is still absurd because you don't lose your draft pick after their rookie season, and they are there as a foundation to build on for the years after.

We are in no way expecting this team to get anywhere near close to a Superbowl even if our draft knocks it out of the park, given how many holes we have, a brand new head coach, and likely a brand new system on offense and defense.

Having the one of the first few picks in any sort of sports draft is desirable to the point of being self-evident. It's hard believe I'm having to waste digital ink defending it....

 

 

OK wait for them to tank for Young. Good luck bro.

So..... How's our momentum in 2019 going after winning those important last two games in 18?

That's only one of probably eight reasons you never tank.

The only clowns that tank are TATF Tanker Boys, Mocker Fockers, DraftGeeks and losers.

And there’s the rub.

Tanking insinuates that a team is better than that but choose to lose.

This is not the Falcons.  They will not choose to lose they will fight.  They’ve been doing this the whole time.

But with Quinn game planning and calling the defense they have one of the worst defenses in the league.  
 

There is a very real chance they may win 3 games total this year.

Would you rather see them win 3 or 6 games?

Are you Dense?

Yes you are.

Go tell that to coaches, players and execs playing for their jobs. Or playing for incentives. Or just playin for pure pride when rival teams come in and slap em in the mouth. That matters way more than them useless mocks you wanna mocker fock this board up with. Trust me. Tank on tanker. You will be disappointed.

You are a MORON.  A broken record.   I am tired of your schtick.  Wake me up when you have something original and thought provoking to say.

You are good for three things:  1) bash TD, 2) give every player an insulting nickname and 3) argue about “fans” opinions of tanking (which isn’t even a thing).

You are a joke- a cartoon character on TATF - if that is what you are going for - congratulations!  You have achieved your goal.

And you are good for one. Tanking and flooding the board with useless mocks. Tank on tanker.

You're one to talk about flooding the boards. You've literally ruined this thread. You made it about tanking when it had absolutely nothing to do with tanking. You're a **** cancer to these boards.

3 wins 6 wins doesn’t matter.  Results will be the same.

People fired.  Jobs lost.  

You’re right.  The team isn’t tanking.  Never argued that.

They’ve been really trying.  They’re just terrible.

I cringe when I think of what the Saints are going to do to them.  Quinn will have them replicate the Hopkins defense where they pay so much attention to Thomas and/or Kamara the 2nd and 3rd option for Brees will be wide open again and again.

No tanking.  Just good old fashioned honest losing.  Unfortunately this team is really good at that.

That’s right.  Any good players the Falcons trade for will basically cost nothing.

Because that’s what teams do.  They trade good players in the prime of their careers and make sure they take all the financial burden.

The Falcons have the same record as Miami after 8 games. Have fun watching these losses.

newsflash. This team ain't winning more than two more games this year. I'm not sure why you're caught up in this tanking mess. If this team reels off four useless wins at the end of the year, softy Artie will have incentive to keep TD and DQ, blame the season on new coordinators and you'll come to the board to complain about TD's moves. A weird cycle that you yourself don't even want to break.

2019 is definitely top 3 worst seasons in Atlanta Falcons franchise history, without question. Just everything about how bad this season is going not only for us, but for what's going on outside of us as well. The insult to injury or cherry on top of this bad season would be the Saints winning their 2nd Super Bowl to our none, to make this officially, the worst season, in Falcons history.

Nah, we caught a huge break avoiding them playing that SB in Atlanta. We would have never heard the end of that.

Yep like Abe, Rison, TonyG, Levitre, Foxy and Asante. Any questions?
