but that wasnt the point of the signing, its him being salty as usual. it (likely) makes it better than what it was yesterday, which was the point of the signing.

I think it has more to do with the familiarity with Dan Quinn.

This is probably true...

that said, as a player I’d like to get more familiar with Belichick.

So in other words, you agree adding a mediocre guy that will only see the field as a situational player doesn't change much at this time for the struggling Falcons defense?

did you not see my post where I said it likely makes them better today than it did yesterday? its always a little of a guessing game but he prob makes them better, which answers your question.

You’re missing the point entirely.... and now you’re only confirming the first post tyler made that you took offense to by admitting he “probably” makes the team better

youre literally proving his point for him

Dan Quinn, and Irvin is originally from ATL. Turned down more money from NE and PIT to go to ATL. Good luck to him

my post seems to have gone over your head. these are actual people and you never know how they actually respond to new teams/coaches/schemes (despite the familiarity). Theres no 100% certainty, hence once i said probably. If that werent the case, we'd see every mid/high priced fa work out and make teams better, we both know that is far, far from the truth.

Also, while I don't expect Irvin to change the needle too much, you never know. My guess is that there could be several high-scoring playoff games where the deciding factor is what defense can make a single key stop. Irvin coming in as a rotational pass rusher and making a couple key sacks for his hometown team could be the difference.

ATL has some tough games coming up in the RS, though, so they'd have to get to the playoffs first.

As long as he’s not starting and used in situational times and in creative ways, you’ll be ok. 

Just get ready for at least one RTP call on a 4th down with the game on the line.

Depth at pass rusher is never a bad thing. Seems like a solid match between the two.

Irvin going to his hometown to play for his old DC in Seattle in the system he's familiar with and thrived in is about as good of a midseason FA acquisition as possible for Atlanta.

The defense has played well over the last two games with the return of Grady Jarrett. The addition of Irvin and the return of Deion Jones next week will give them a big boost going foward.

they'll make a good push when Jones comes back. Keep that dude away from Kamara though.
