Bucs and Panthers are actually a much tougher out than the Falcons. They just don't talk as much meaningless shite as Falcon's fans.




The saints and falcons are head and shoulders above these teams.

The saints and falcons are a few moves away from being serious contenders

I agree with that, but the Saints have a much tougher time with the Panthers and Bucs. We always seem to take care of the Falcons

6-6 against both teams under Payton while 10-2 against the Falcons

re: Sean Payton reinstated - how it affects the NFC South


so the Bucs and Panthers have better game plans for the Saints than the Falcons do. It's just a shame that the Bucs can't parlay those wins into wins against any other team in the NFL.

Falcons need a pass rush and a running game. They get that and they will be a very though team to beat. Their secondary is sick, need to resign Moore though. They have above average backers. Their running game is why they blew those leads in the playoffs IMO

Not sure I agree with this. We moved the ball fine in the second half, Ryan dropped a snapon the SF 29, threw a bad INT and we were still 15 yards away from winning. I'm not sure how much a better run game changes that.

The pass rush I absolutely agree with. Our pass rush was non-existent all year. ATL will draft DE/DL in rds 1-2 IMO.

I actually see us cutting Turner to get some more cap space, and then turning around and using that money to sign some veteran presence at those positions. Then we can use the draft to get a LB in the 1st, and a replacement RB in the 2nd if there is one good enough there. If not, then we need to go CB with the 2nd round pick.

Turner is definitely gone. I would have to look at FAs to see who we could possibly sign on the DL.

Honestly, just about any RB in the league will be an improvement over Turner. We don't need a stud RB just someone who can move the chains on short yardage situations.

TE is obviously going to be huge for us but I'll be damned if we draft one early over a DE. Tony coming back would be the biggest offseason move our team would make IMO. That would be so huge for us.

this was actually turning into a decent thread with relevant discussion, way to bring nothing to the table.

I'm thinking MJ might be out of our price range, he is about to get paid. I've seen his name thrown around tho. Osi lives in Huntcliffe in sandy springs but I don't really want him.

Really don't know enough about the rest of the list.
