Well we were one play away from getting to the super bowl. I don't see why not. However most of us don't like this move if it happens jase.

Just a Darelle Revis away from 0 pass rush and cap woes

"But a good secondary will help with our pass rush!!!" yeah just like he helped with the jets nonexistent passrush.

And? What does that have to do with the lack of depth they'll have once gonzo finally hangs it up and they don't have their next few 1st round picks if they trade for Revis?

BUT, who was it that we just read an article on here from recently who said that Hurney's weakness/problem was his dependency on bringing rookies in and expecting them to contribute immediately?

The point is, if you're already good and addressed the positions you needed to address prior to the draft, then you don't NEED your 1st rounders every year. You just better be right in who you spent them on, which the Failcons have as of late.

EDIT: It was Smitty I was referring to in the first sentence.

if the falcons want to trade away the meat of another draft to shoehorn more star power into their secondary while their front four rots into nothing i'm not going to complain

unless my eyes are playing tricks on me falcons fans it looks like your best defensive end right now is kroy biermann

Yeah that's not really helping your point

They already have two cruical FAs they'll need to resign PLUSmanging to stay under cap for both Revis and Matt Ryan next year, PLUS trying to find one or two good DEs, PLUS trying to find a starting HB.

And if they follow your example of not trying to find rookies to contribute immediately (they won't, they're going to draft rookies and expect them to start, just like 31 other teams will) there's zero way they can stay under cap.

Not true. Depending on how steep the price will be on Revis. I'm sure the Falcons are willing to give up this year 1st and 2nd for him. Even tho his coming of ACL tear. It is going to depend how much the Jets want for him. But I'm sure the team that has best chances are the 49ers. They are have 12 picks in this year draft. The already great 49ers will just be even more powerful if they get Revis. So either way the Panthers want see the SB no time soon with 49ers getting stronger. LOL

I just think Revis already wants to go to San Fran and that is going to overpower Atlantas efforts..

Uhh, Smitty is the one who said drafting rookies and expecting them to start immediately was a problem. Looking at our philosophy under Hurney's tenure in which the scales tipped overwhelmingly with prejudice towards drafting rookies over EVER signing FAs to start, I'd say that philosophy is flawed.

Everyone could be right about the Failcons this year because of their front four, but releasing Turner won't hurt them. RB is the easiest position to fill year in and year out. Their offense won't suffer, especially if Gonzo somehow comes back. Defensively? We'll see. All I'm saying is, their way of doing things has produced way more positive results and outcomes than ours have over the last 3-5 years.

Yes, and they improved after each of those signings. What have we done since 2009?

We got a revamped logo that looks meaner

Lol falcons would be idiots to give up the picks it will take to get a DB coming off an ACL injury.. That lack of draft picks will come back to bite them in the ass eventually IMO.

Has not so far. Hurney has done far worse to our team. Than again he traded away our picks as well.
