NorthGaBoy Posted December 5, 2022 Share Posted December 5, 2022 (edited) I hope this thread does not get moved or deleted. It is only tangentially about the Falcons. As well, I hope I do not get banned for making this plea. So, here goes. I see a lot of agendas on TATF. The latest is about Arthur Smith's press conference. AS hinted that a QB change is under consideration. He also stated that we lost this last game in part because the defense could not get the Falcons offense more time on the field. A poster commented that AS is a coward for not addressing the QB situation. I don't get it. Did he need to say he was considering benching Marcus Mariota to make fans happy? That is effectively what he hinted was under consideration. And, the comment about the defense is accurate. Another poster said AS was stupid for not pulling Mariota in game one of this season and putting Ridder in. Stupid? Ridder had some bad habits that needed correcting. And, because he is very talented and capable, I think it was wise to protect him for a while as he learns and makes corrections. After all, the 2022 Falcons were never going to win a SB. And, I think Ridder could be the QB of the future. Time will tell. The fact that AS is now hinting the QB position is under consideration makes me believe that the issues Ridder showed in preseason have been corrected. As well, the OL, with all their limitations and weaknesses, have demonstrated they can give the QB adequate protection. That does not mean they are a good OL, but are unlikely to get a QB seriously injured. So why would anyone on TAFT have an agenda? We have no influence on this coaching staff. They do not care what we think or demand. Calling them insulting names will not persuade them to do what we want. AS is going to do what is good for this team in the long term. He is not interested in what fans want right now. He is continuing to work his plan. I believe Ridder will take the field soon and it has nothing to do with what anyone on this site has to say. I would like to talk about the Falcons as a fan. We all have perceptions, opinions, and knowledge. We should share those. I know I have learned much on TATF from posters who are willing to share their knowledge and answer my dumb questions. Rampaging this message board with agendas, demands, insults, and threats does nothing but discourage other posters from attempting to have the right kind of discourse. Agendas will do nothing to the Falcons. It will only impact fans on TAFT in a negative way. I know many times I wanted to express an opinion, but because the thread turned agenda driven, I just left it alone. I don't think I am the only poster on here who has experienced this. Please, stop projecting agendas and making demands. We are not in control of the Falcons. This is just my opinion. I am not a moderator, an administrator, and have no association with the Falcons except as a MB member and loyal fan. Please feel free to tar and feather me.
