  1. Which is interesting because lately, the thought was "Ryan can't beat Rodgers" and he put that to rest. Would love to see Ryan go up there and smoke the eagles... btw, Ryan in Philly's average game is 22/37 (58%) for 264 yards, 2 TDs and an INT in the regular season. And this past year was his only game in the postseason vs. the Eagles and it was basically the same. So there might be something to it because those #s are all below his road career average.
  2. I'd love to see the Falcons just smash the Eagles week 1.
  3. Potential Surprise Cuts?

    I could see Dan Quinn and THomas Dimitroff bringing him in here for a late round pick before he'd be cut.
  4. 4 Fantasy Football Questions: Please Help

    Because it's his third year in the NFL and he's shown improvement each year. He also spent all offseason with MAtt Ryan trying to improve their chemistry to near Ryan-Gonzalez levels.
  5. 4 Fantasy Football Questions: Please Help

    1) yes. 2) Sanu 3) 2016 is much closer to this year. 4) Austin Hooper 70 catches, 750 yards, 8 TD
  6. Atlanta Falcons extend GM and HC Dimitroff and Quinn

    They had 2 bad seasons. 2012, they were in the NFCCG. In 2013, they went 4-12, in 2014 6-10. fired Mike Smith, broguht in Quinn. Went 8-8 in 2015. (which is a fine season for what it is. Sports radio stations out here? Are you in Atlanta? Also, sports radio has no clue what's actually going on with the team. Especailly in Atlanta where half of sports radio was calling for Julio to be traded just yesterday.
  7. Atlanta Falcons extend GM and HC Dimitroff and Quinn

    Atlanta is 95 -65 (59.4%) in the regular season under Dimitroff. Playoffs, they are 4-6 with a SB appearance. They are 256-378-6 (40.4%) in the regular season before Dimitroff. Playoffs, they are 6-8 with a SB appearance. So they're a better team with Dimitroff.
  8. Atlanta Falcons extend GM and HC Dimitroff and Quinn

    Dimitroff was never going to be let go.
  9. Giants sign OLB Connor Barwin to 2-year deal

    He's basically a faster Brooks Reed at this point in his career.
  10. Relationship Advice Thread

    Because @tyty's maturity peaked at 14? (I keed I keed)
  11. Yup. Devonta Freeman makes that block. Matt Ryan fires it down field to Aldrick Robinson and Atlanta goes up 35-11.
  12. Where Does Atlanta Finish in NFC South?

    1) Julio will be there for Training camp. This is a non-story. 2) Ryan is a good-to-great QB. Not a "Solid to good" QB. Sarkisian should be better with Greg Knapp helping him gameplan and after a year in the offense after having never coached a WCO before. 3) the players adore Quinn. If the Rah rah runs off. It won't be this year. Especially not with the defense continuing to take strides over the past three seasons.
  13. Where Does Atlanta Finish in NFC South?

    There's the 2000-2006 group which has Brees, Brady, Palmer, Eli, Roethlisberger, Rivers, etc, then Ryan's generation (because he's 7 years younger than that group) is the 2007-2011 drafts with Stafford, Flacco, Bradford, Cam. It's not as good as the 2000-2006 group, but he's still one of the best QBs of his generation.
  14. Where Does Atlanta Finish in NFC South?

    Week 1, that was luck Week 2, Falcons dominated them from start to finish. Week 3, wanna bring up the 2 tipped INTs that the Lions defense had that bounced off receivers hands? Falcons won in spite of an unlucky day.
  15. Where Does Atlanta Finish in NFC South?

    Matt Ryan is one of the best QBs of this generation. But keep hating on him for no reason. The fact of the matter is that the games they lost this past year weren’t his fault. 8 INTs that we’re just unlucky (dropped by WR or wrong route by receiver and highest total for any QB since 2010). The Falcons also were 3rd in the league in drop percentages. That didn’t help either. But keep hating on Ryan. On the other thing, you’re totally making my point. Sarkisian was so used to running his scheme that he had to learn the Falcons scheme last year. He should be better in year two just from that. The Falcons improves at certain weaknesses (RG and Defensive inexperience) that should help them improve in 2018. They also improved upon strengths at corner and wide receiver that should only pay dividends now and in the future. There’s a reason why a lot of people see them winning the division again.
