What do this team need?


Recommended Posts

Going thru the mock drafts and looking at the team needs? Like if we could have an:

Left Guard : Passing game specialist with improving run game skills or a Mauler with improving pass game skills

Running Back: A Speedster, Bruiser or a 3 Down Back

FB: yes or no its a fullback

Tight Ends: Really comes down to how we handle Hooper and Stocker....period

Edge: With Takk Cominsky and Larkin in the mix what type of edge guy would you like to see on this team a Leo or 5 Tech

IDL With Grady Davison and Senat... Is it time for a big DT 6'4 or better

Lbs : Do we need another debo which we have in Foye or do we need a true Wlb to cover tight ends and rbs.

Corner Backs: A true outside guy or a inside guy

Safety: A ballhawk or a big thumper

now I didn't list QB WR Tackle Center because as for starters we are good. 

Please all give your insight.. see where we all have invisioned for our team

Firm believer on giving Grady a productive running mate either interior (preferred) or edge ( needed) would be best for growth of team. The choices at 16 for either is weak tho IMO. Been focusing on how to improve this part of team through draft for months, thinking must be done in FA. Some how? Yeesh

The cooki

Murray Chaison or Xavier McKinney at 16 would be upgrade for whom they would bring, and certainly would have playmaking resume for each.

FA is a big must figure out for this team. Specifically no Hooper re sign to do so.

After watching the Super Bowl maybe what the team really needs is some luck. I'm not talking about the retired QB either. Not to take anything away from Mahomes because he is one of the best. Last night he wasn't at his best. Basically for the majority of the game. The two INTs were on him. His inaccuracy caused them. Yet, at the end of the day he still won a Super Bowl. Would this ever be possible for Matt Ryan?

1.  A better HC.  Quinn is a slow learner.  He does not get his team ready to play for the first few weeks of every season.  He is a poor game manager and he certainly does not live up to his reputation as a defensive guru.  

2.  A better rush blocking scheme and a better OL coach.  We do not see much improvement from our depth OL players.  A good coach would have both of them playing much better.  

3.  Full scale upgrades along the DL.  I believe we need an interior DL more than an edge guy.  If by some miracle, Kinlaw falls to #16, he should be our pick.  Jarrett is amazing, but he needs a partner to turn the defense around.  

4.  A work horse RB to make play action a real threat.  

5.  We need for Brown or Carpenter to step up and play to their contracts.  Forget signing another FA OL, we simply can not afford it. 

6.  We need another Safety that can cover.  Neal is a nice head banger, but that does us very little good.  We need a smart and savvy cover guy that can create turn overs.  

7.  We need to shut down the Slogan machine that is Flowery Branch.  Enough with the cute phrases and let's see some real football.

  1. A true power back who can covert those tough third downs
  2. Better edge defenders - we have not had a legit pass rush since Abe and even then he was a one man show
  3. Another DT, we have no one outside Grady
  4. We need better DBs, specifically CBs. Trufant is grossly overpaid, and has never been the same since the pec injury. Oliver is very raw.  Neal may never return to full form. Allen is overrated. Our whole secandary needs revamped
  5. LG and C. The FA OL we signed last year look like wasted signings. Mack is getting older. 

Basically, we need a ton. Definitely can't fill these holes in one offseason. 

Plan of action needs to be a 3 year rebuild: focus on pass rush and build the defense based upon that rush and load with some good cover corners who can also play man when need be. This soft zone cover 3 s*** is stale. Get a great running game going, and by that we NEED a better, more powerful RB. 

In three years, we should have a solid pass rush and running game. We will be  in contention again if we can build this team right. The thing is, I have zero hope that TD will build this team right. If we have a solid draft, that tone will change. If not, then next year could be the last year of Quinn/Td...
