Re: Falcons Shuffle Coaching Staff, Move Raheem to WRs

Based off initial twitter reaction, this move (particularly Morris taking over at WR) wasn't met with great applause. I like the move. Playing WR in the NFL is mostly about route-running and reading coverages (so that you know how to adjust your route-running), so getting a coach with extensive back...

This isn't like players, coaches change jobs because they constantly is job turnover. He left Houston because he took the job in Washington with his dad. He left Washington because his dad got fired.

Re: So what now?

The problem is Waz, you make comparisons between the Falcons offense and his offense as if they're a 1 to 1 comparison. They're not. Like I said, I don't want to be on this pro-Shanahan side of the fence. But if you're going to make good comparisons, compare the 2014 offense to the 2015 offense, whe...

Taking a MLB in Round 1

So there seem to be 3 consensus first-round inside linebacker prospects this year: UCLA Myles Jack, Notre Dame Jaylon Smith and Alabama's Reggie Ragland. Jack suffered a knee injury in September. I don't recall that it was an ACL tear, but rather a torn meniscus. But assuming the usual 9-month recov...

Re: A first-pick.com mock draft

The problem is that few of the centers available this year really fit the zone-blocking scheme we have. Blocking on the 2nd level is very improtant, and based off the preferences shown by the coaching staff when they shuffled their OL roster last summer, they tend to emphasize athleticism and moveme...

NFR: Lovie Smith Fired

Thoughts? 4-win improvement in 2015, but he got axed. Rumor is that everybody's retroactively favorite offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter is going to be hired to replace him. Similar to how they fired Jon Gruden and the hired Raheem Morris (one of the assistants) so he wouldn't leave. Teams are star...

Re: Big Win

We need to start looking and grooming Matt Ryan's successor as well. Ryan is signed through 2018. If you draft a rookie now, then you can sit him for at least three years before you're put in a position to shit or get off the pot. Ryan is fairly safe through 2017 at the least. While he's had a dip ...

Big Win

This week 16 win ove Carolina is arguably the biggest win since the 2012 Seahawks. Hell, you could make the case it's the biggest win since the NFC CHampionship Game in 1998 when you consider the odds the Falcons managed to overcome. Maybe the win in Lambeau eclipses it because that was also a playo...

Re: A tough question

From my count there are only 6-7 players remaining on this years roster that were here in 2012. So am I assume you want to get rid of Ryan, Julio, Roddy, Matt Bryant and William Moore?? Gee, I guess you're right. In my head, it seemed like 10-12. But Roddy and Willy Mo are probably gone, and Bryant...

Re: A tough question

What was the knock on the team when Mike Smith was here? They didn't respond well to adversity. But that was simply dismissed because Mike Smith wasn't a good coach. Now the team is going through the same problems? And now it's once again because the coach isn't good enough. At a certain point you h...

Are you actually buying into the Shanahan just needs his kind of players crap... I'm buying into the Falcons don't have good talent on the offensive side of the ball.

Re: More catches this year?

What "isn't right" is the fact that Shanahan's system needs a competent starting caliber No. 2 WR, a better tight end and a legit starting center to work. He has none of the above. Tamme is trying to pull his weight at TE, but when he and Devonta Freeman are your second most reliable recei...
