Countdown for the annual Falcon Chokejob

40 posts in this topic

Alright. In the spirit of poo-talking, how will the failcons get raped this time? I need scenarios...

-May be Seahawks defense will put on a clinic. They have a better secondary than us. But the loss of Chris Clemons may slow down the pass-rush. And if Falcons decide to use Turner, they can exploit that

-Marshawn Lynch may go Beastmode and keep Falcons offense off the field

-Sherman will get under the skins of some falcons

-How serious is John Abraham's injury?

Panthers' homerism aside, this will be a tough one for the falcons. But if they get past this team, I think they may do some damage this year.

I approve of this thread.

Trolling/BS aside - if they lose on Sunday is Smith on the hot seat?

I don't think so. They only missed teh playoffs once under Smith, but you never know with today's NFL.

I doubt he's on the hot seat. He's a good coach. He's made some stupid ass moves over the years though. All those 4th and short situations against the G-men come to mind.

Homerism aside, this will also be a tough one for the Seahawks. Let's not be foolish and pretend like the Falcons aren't a good at all. It's going to be a good, close game.

    • Im pretty sure he was white as a ghost in the comics bro
    • They're results, not skillsets.  Too many factors go into those results to get a conclusive evaluation.  For instance, how many times was Howard targeted downfield compared to Njoku?  How was he used in the redzone...as a receiver, blocker, the primary option, and so forth? And yards after contact is a very inconsistent measure since not all contact is the same, nor are the situations in which a player gets the ball.  Not to mention the role the offensive scheme and surrounding talent plays.  Heck, if all we had to do was look at the numbers, there wouldn't be any need for the combine, all-star games, pro days, private workouts, etc.  Teams could just pull out the stat sheet and make their selections.  No, teams look for the skillsets a player possesses to determine how they translate to the NFL.  Stats are only an indicator to use as part of the puzzle.  So, just looking at the actual skills, what does Njoku possess that is superior to Howard?  Has he shown better hands?  Has he shown he can run better routes?  Is he a better athlete?  Is he a better blocker? The answer is no to all of them.  Does that mean Njoku is a bad player?  Absolutely not.  But Howard clearly has the better tools, and is considered the better prospect by virtually every evaluator for a reason.
