That wasn't the assertion I was making.

I was saying that they are making moves and will continue to make moves to plug in at the spots that they lost production from through those veteran releases. We have yet to do anything of significance and the top-tier guys are going quickly, many for much cheaper than what was expected.


that's not what i got out of this:

My guess is, if Gross was playing for ATL, he already would've been released if they had a options like Campbell behind him and the draft to choose from - just as they did with Abraham, Robinson, and Turner.


my exact point is that they have no quality starters at DE right now and they're going to be hard pressed to replace abraham's production regardless of what they do in the draft or free agency. is it really that hard to swallow? "just like they did with abraham" implies that there's depth there when there's demonstrably not.

I lost a TON of faith in Marty, Fox, and JR after the ass beating to the Cards in the playoffs a few years ago.

Marty, during the offseason, said something along the lines of: "we'll we are returning 20 of 22 starters from a division winner"

Lol. This is not college football. We don't have returning seniors. You HAVE to get better because everyone else will.

Needless to say the franchise has not been the same since that loss.

That was our year man

Is Jackson at this point in his career any better than Turner was last year? More of a big name than a big impact. It's about time we get off our asses and make some type of move.

Yeah the Falcons are not doing much if they dont improve their pass rush, really that goes for every team in our divsion. They are all signing skill position players but no trench guys. Saints and Falcons defensive lines make our O Line look Top 5.

Paper champions... where have I seen this before?

You could almost say the Falcons were assembling a "DREAM TEAM".

Too bad this isn't the NBA and it doesn't work like that.

"just like they did with abraham" implies that there's depth there when there's demonstrably not.

I was stating that with the implication being that they will be replacing Abraham with a FA signing or draft pick and equating that to Gross being released to free up room to sign other players (like they did) and replacing him with OUR depth in OUR situation in a worst case scenario. I didn't make that clear in my original post, but my point is that they didn't release Abraham without a plan. Meanwhile, we still have money tied up in guys that don't produce like they used to and have only added Drayton Florence. Superbowl.

I don't find any solace that they don't have DE depth. They have proven to make the right decisions in Dimitroff's tenure and they will replace Abraham.

He isn't washed up, but assuming a guy can change teams and pick right up where he left off is a foolish assumption.

We'll just have to see how this plays out.
