  1. Said it elsewhere: Darnold's age isn't what gets me so much as it is just how little experience he has playing quarterback. You can coach him up like a rookie without having to worry about helping him adjust to the speed of the NFL.
  2. Darnold is only 23 years old. As someone mentioned on Twitter, Sewell is only 20. Just 20 years old...and since he sat out a year, those clips you're watching are of a 19 year old kid throwing people around. We get this kid, I'm gonna be doing the Snoopy dance.
  3. Related Note: Sounds like the proposed change to the jersey numbering system is going to be adopted. DJ Moore could soon be wearing his college #2 again.
  4. One thing I remember about Moore's first season is the insane amount of times he took handoffs on gadget plays rather than catching passes. That struck me as a concern. Wasn't as big a deal in his second season, though there were a lot of questions about his chemistry with Bridgewater. At this point, I still feel pretty positive about Moore, but there are some questions in the back of my head.
  5. I don't want to trade down. I want to stick at 8 and take Penei Sewell or Rashaan Slater. Having teams trade ahead of us for a quarterback helps that happen.
  6. Rapoport lists the Broncos and the Patriots as two big possibilities.
  7. Keeping Marty in place was absolutely Tepper's fault. He has to own that, and from things he's said since the firing I think he knows it. What happens from here forward is what's most important now, though. And one of the biggest criteria to me is his willingness to butt out and let the football people he hired do their jobs. Based on Person's story about the Darnold process, it sounds like he's doing that.
  8. He also never had his own people in charge till this season. I've said elsewhere that I don't count the Jerry Richardson era as having ended until the day Marty Hurney was fired.
  9. Pretty much everything you're citing though came under the prior ownership and braintrust. Tepper is still an incomplete to me.
  10. The thing that gets me about Darnold is his inexperience. The guy really hasn't been playing quarterback all that long. He was only a part-time starter in high school. It's one of the reasons I say to treat him like a rookie, but there's an advantage there. A big part of most rookie transitions is learning the speed of the game. Darnold doesn't have to do that. If he can be properly coached up, there's real potential there .
  11. Per the draft order, the Falcons are currently worse than us.
  12. I'd agree with the caveat that he needs the right system. You don't want Bridgewater running a Coryell.
  13. My answer is that I know of at least one team that took longer to get there than we've been in existence. Are there others? Don't think so but I'd have to look it up.
  14. Which, if I correctly understand the things that we have to account for, means we basically don't have anything left.
  15. The Falcons didn't from 1966 to 2009. That's more years than we've been in existence.
  16. Well, by the time the season rolls around, we might.
  17. That's what I thought this thread would be about.
  18. I think you might need to borrow that picture from the post above you.
