    Each week I bring to you the highlights, and lowlights, of what the fan base of the opposition is saying. This week, the Atlanta Falcons. On beating the Panthers... I mean, it could happen. I am happy that at least one fan is man enough to still cheer for his team despite adversity. Well, sheesh, the guy is being positive. Give him a break. Ok Ok, maybe it is a long shot. But at least he was trying not to be a downer? OK, this is getting morbid. The conversation then devolves into a strange mix of Third Eye Blind and football. Might be true. On trading Matt Ryan for Kirk Cousins? ( WTF? ) When Kirk Cousins looks like the answer... you may just want to give up on football and watch the Hawks from here on out. On the Falcons Draft Selection... Long time Panthers fans can really relate to talking about the draft in December. It is an awful, gut wrenching experience knowing you are a full 10 months away from any hope of a Superbowl. It crushes the soul. That said, I am thoroughly enjoying watching the Falcons fans go through it. The funniest thing is that the second post up there is true. They have won too many games to get a top 10 pick this season. What they have is a worst case scenario. Peaking early in the season when it didn't matter, and now stuck watching a cesspool of anemic football with no hope of a sure thing top tier college player to help cheer them up. View full article

    I will give them credit for being the first crappy team we've played that isn't delusional about how crappy they are.

    The great thing about the NFL draft is the incoming talent pool is typically deep enough that, aside from a need at QB (which they don't have, despite what some on there think) there's no such thing as "no man's land" for a draft pick. Star -14th, Short - 2nd round, Benjamin - 28th, Thompson - 25th, etc. The problem is their drafts from about the 2012 NFCCG season on are reminiscent of the drafts at the end of Hurney's tenure, and once the veterans from those teams left, that drafting got exposed. In many ways it's a carbon copy of the Panthers' post-2008 era, let's just hope that if they move on from Ryan they don't find their Cam, and when they move on from Dimitroff they don't find their Gettleman.

    Wow. I come back to the huddle after 6 years and this thread is still going (no wonder my post count is at a zero!). I don't have anything funny that you probably haven't seen, so I'll submit a picture I took last year at one of my favorite places on earth.

    Wait their new stadium is named after Mercedes Benz? Isn't the superdome using the Mercedes Benz name already?

    What this truly shows is that a great drafting GM does make a world of difference. Where Atlanta is praying they can get 2nd & 3rd rounders to contribute strong but fall short, we have a GM that has picked up 5th rounders and UDFA that START and make solid contributions to this team and are part of the reason we sit where we are today.

    The difference is they're coming off a demoralizing loss as opposed to a big "Maybe we turned a corner!" win. Slip up here and that board looks completely different once Week 16 rolls around.

    Just a great post! That's exactly what I think, just way better said! Julio was a hope and a prayer. While he's a great player, they lack the other pieces. They've missed out on some draft picks in the meantime as well. In order to climb out of their current hole, they are going to have to hit on some draft picks and hit on those FA pick ups. Their front office hasn't had much success in either avenue. I can't say I feel bad, or even sympathetic to the Falcons. I've hated them for so long, I kind of enjoy watching the hope fade from the franchise and fan base right now =) I'm not a good person =)

    It also helps, when you have a good coach-who communicates with the GM-so you have an overall cohesive strategy, and know who you are, what you wanna do.

    I've said that for a while. Ryan is not and will never be in the class of Rodgers/Manning/Brees/Brady/Cam, but he is in the range of guys like Eli, Dalton, Flacco, and Alex Smith. Those guys won't single handedly win you a superbowl, but they also won't cost you a superbowl either. I said when they sold the farm to draft Julio that by doing that, they'd get a quick fix but long term failure because of it. Julio is hitting his prime, but they lack depth, and the hope for 2nd and 3rd rounders is to hopefully be starters and 4+ round guys being second stringers, well they gave up a couple of starters and a lot of second stringers by doing that. When you add that in with the fact they are paying out the ass for Ryan when compared to his skillset, then you realize they don't have the money or talent to prop up a mid tier QB. Ultimately, I wouldn't be surprised in the least to see them run that horse faced asshole outta town, but as much as I hate him, I could see him doing well for someone with a team already there around him like Houston, Denver, or maybe even St Louis with their defense.

    hah yea. I was gonna comment on this photo too. Looks like the cheerleader on the left wants to let Cam do dirty things to her, while the cheerleader on the right looks like a stuck up chick who would never date a guy "like Cam".

    To me, it looks like they try to play a 4-3 defense with 3-4 personnel. It's as confusing as their front office flow chart. The command structure between Blank, GM Dimitroff, Scott Pioli, and HC Quinn makes as much sense as Hitler's command structure of the German Armed Forces. Quinn has some of Dimitroff's power and reports to Blank independently of Dimitroff and Pioli. Meanwhile Dimitroff reports to Pioli about some things while Pioli reports to Dimitroff in others, and both having to defer to Quinn on some things while still having to report to Blank. Hope they keep it up and they probably will. PSLs aren't selling for Arthur's new stadium, so I imagine Blank will want to sign some big money players to bring some excitement, and rev up PSL sales instead of tearing down the front office and doing a real re-build, which would lead to a ghost-town on opening day of the 2017 season.

    Hahahaha. Cousins. If they get rid of Matt Ryan, he is going to land somewhere QB-poor like Houston and take them to the playoffs while Atlanta gets sucked down in the muck of the NFC south to battle New Orleans for the #1 pick year after year. As much as it pains me to dole out complements to Ryan, above-average QBs don't grow on trees.

    Matt Ryan isn't their problem, it's Shanahan.

    The dude in the green jacket has this serious "If I wasn't such a little weasel I'd try to knock Cam out." look
