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.

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.

Oh yeah I wasn't saying thier way of doing things is flawed just they havea lot of gaps to fill and doing this would be fugging suicidal to signing key players and future FAs.

And even if they don't plan to sign him next year and they see Revisas THE key missing piece for a SB run (lmao he isn't) are they really willing to give up the picks jsut for a one year player?

That being said obviously thier FO is better than ours the past 5 years.

I still see Revis going to a prove Defensive team like the 49ers.

Yea, two games that we're losing in our division. Yea, two games of shutting down our best receiver (89).

Thats a 0-2 in the NFC South before our season even start. =)

If the Falcons invest this heavily into their secondary rather than improving their aging defensive trenches, it's going to be a grave mistake. The Falcons are looking at literally having one of the worst pash rushes in the league, going into next year. Even Revis can't cover indefinitely, and it's yet to be seen if he's the same coming off injury. Not to mention that the Falcons run defense is going to be fuging atrocious.
