So Now Roddy White is out too?

If so im think 2 things.

1). The Saints have clinched the division.

2). The Falcons are thinking of tanking the season for the high draft pick,

Supposedly he's 50/50 as of Today (wendesday) but they have a bye week and then play TB. He may be back but he hasn't really been 100% all season since Week 1.

Sadly, they aren't tanking. They're just not a good meshed team this year and got stung by the injury bug... a lot... this season.

I can't imagine putting a team like that together, dishing out that much cash, to just tank for a high round pick?

Tank the season because your third best receiving options misses one game?

Let them tank!!!

If so they will be making a mistake, this was their one shot to win it all. After this year they are losing TG and most likely Roddy won't resign because after giving Matty-ocrity that fat paycheck they have to address defensive and offensive line issues in the offseason and will no longer be able to afford Roddy.

I wish they would tank but you shouldn't want them to. Not to mention, NFL players don't tank on purpose. This is a business and a paycheck to feed their families.

Also, it wasn't our 'one shot to win it all'. It was a Super Bowl or bust year but Matt Ryan has shown that he can get them to the dance. Everyone outside of Matt Ryan and Julio can get lost though, Mike Smith included.

Just two years ago. Colts for Luck. And if you don't think they tanked you might want to kill yourself.

I don't think the Falcons will miss him the way he's been playing lately. Running lazy routes, dropping passes, jawing his mouth, missing blocks, etc.

They're not tanking. Its the players' careers they're worried about. No one on that team will intentionally lose for a draft pick for a team they may not be on next year. Plus, the eye in the sky never lies. That would be on film and cost those guys future dollars. Doesn't happen.

The Falcons are a testament to how fine of a line there is in the NFL. If they could convert goalline opportunities at the end of the game or would have gotten the 4th down conversions, they're 5-0. If you think about it, they SHOULD be 5-0. This is why and how teams finish last in a division and then jump to first the next year. The talent level in the league is identical, the differences are the QBs and the HCs. And we're lucky to have without argument one of the best of each....hence 5-0. Last year, just one of those, 1-4. That's the league in a nutshell.

Guess I need to go off myself then. Why would NFL players tank for another player? I'd imagine that 85%-plus of the players that were on the team 4 years ago aren't even on the team anymore. This isn't NFL 2k13 on the PS3. Vets may not buy in to what a coach is saying but even then, they're not gonna tank a season.

It may be a "soft tanking." Smith calls even sillier plays, puts in marginal players, etc.

For all intents and purposes he's been out all season. Yeah he's been playing, but he's clearly playing hurt.
