He is a good players. But Jared allen had a lot to do with his production and so does the Williams brothers. atlanta front four isnt that good. Johnathan Babineaux and John abraham is only good. But Abraham is getting old.

I mean we praise CJ and his sacks.... J.A. did have 13 last season... He is getting older, but still producing for now.

Meanwhile, on the Falcants board, this same exact thread is going on but about Greg Olsen.

Yea a lot of fans lack objectivity.

Every thing their team does is great, and were the next best thing...

Ever move a opposing team makes is stupid, or the player is overrated, won't work out ect.

Not all, but most.

like you did for julio?

sorry....team that gives up that much for the 2nd best WR of a draft can't talk about other teams overpaying.

Please, the draft and FA are not equal. We had to move up 21 spots, we gave up a 1st, 2, and 2 4ths. You paid 40 million for 3 more sacks.

Bro, I hate the falcons more than any other team, and I am telling you that your team better win this year because Carolina and Tampa are building the right way for the future.

I will say I am one of the only people on the board who actually liked your draft day trade, and I said it then. Very rarely does a solid team only missing a few pieces get to draft a young stud. Essential you gave up a 2nd and 2 4th to move up in the round. That's not bad.... Your 2 4ths you probably didn;t need anyway, and Jones is worth giving up the 2nd so... good aggresive trade to fill a need.

CJ stops the run and pressures the QB more than Ray.

How does it taste?

Settling for a DE that not many Falcon fans wanted..... simply because CJ didn't want anything to do with the Falcons?

Edwards won't top 6 sacks next season. Allen and the Williams wall demanded double teams and attention on every play. Edwards was the weak link and was treated as such.

CJ was the only DL player worth a crap last season. He was double teamed constantly and still had more sacks, tackles, and hurries that Edwards will ever dream of seeing. Our offense was so bad that teams chose to primarily run against us....and he still managed those stats.

Edwards in a good player, but will prove to be nowhjere near as good as people thinks without the supporting cast.

John Abraham is just as good as Jared Allen as a pass rusher.... Babs is just as good as Kevin Williams as a pass rusher... Pat Williams does not even rush the passer on pass rushing downs...

So come on

Dude...you need to put that crack pipe away. The Atlanta DL has no one that would start in Minnesota.

One thing you can count on every year....the Falcons defense will still suck ass.

Sorry, but I think the $72 Million had more to do with re-signing with Carolina than him "not wanting anything to do with the Falcons"

It's hilarious that you Panther's fans are saying Edwards was only good because he was on a good D line. Well, he's going from one good line to another. Babineaux is the best DT in this division. Abraham is the best DE in this division. Jerry has something to prove this year, I admit. But he has the potential. I'm just saying, that's weak reasoning.
