No! Joe Panos, former NFL Lineman and his agent, won't let that happen. Big 'Shede looked good at minicamp. Hope he's not a tease.
Yeah, a lot of people were whispering that last weekend. "Seems like TD is blaming Smitty for the downfall."
The scheme doesn't make the player. It just doesn't. So, I don't think Dan Quinn has a magical scheme wand to change them from last in the league. The players have to play. I think Ra'Shede Hageman has the biggest upside of the returning players. I want to see more of Dezmen Southward. He flashed once got healthy. If Clayborn can play, that would also be helpful.
Not sure they are strong enough up front on the offensive line. I like how the defensive front is shaping up. The key is Ra'Shede Hageman turning into a force. He has to come through. Whatever Beasley does as a rookie will be gravy if Hageman is stomping around opponent's backfields.

Jmincy --- .love your veiws and insights regarding the team ! How do you think we will match up with top teams . Win the division or nah?
Vic Beasley is from Adairsville. Big Grady Jarrett is from Conyers. Auburn's Jon Mincy is getting a tryout and he's from Southwest DeKalb. The music is much better at Quinn's stretching sessions. He hasn't let us watch practice yet, so we just have what the players are saying. Julio Jones, whom I trust, is digging the practices.
He would have been brought back by now. He was not re-signed.
Bell is off to a good start. He's beating the Big 10 Curse right now. You know, other than that drug suspension.
He is the major concern. If they hit on him that will be great. But there are some bust factors that they can't ignore.
I concur. The idea is to get the best players you can. They pass on too many guys who can actually play the game. Signing Collins would be like having two first-round picks!!! I'd get him and put him at left guard immediately. He can move out to tackle later. I'd play him like Dallas played Zach Martin last season.
Yes, they'll get the Julio deal done. Dezmen Southward or Godrey at FS. Don't see a trade for a tackle. They may sign Joe Barksdale.
Dezmen Southward was drafted for that position last year. He'll get the first shot. He's why they didn't re-sign Dwight Lowery.
He has to overcome "The NFL Curse of the Big 10 Running Back". A lot of the big-time Big Ten backs have flopped in the NFL. Archie Griffin, Ron Dayne and Darrell Thompson come to mind. Eddie George was pretty decent though.
Doubt it. He'd love to play here. All players love the ATL. He worked out before the draft in Duluth.
I'm not sure. :The blocking is still suspect to me.
I saw him at the minicamp, but didn't get to check in with him. I don't think so. He broke his leg.
They kicked the tires on Joe Barksdale after the draft, but he's a tackle. Yes, the offensive line is a concern.
He'll be in the OLB rotation. He didn't make the two-deep at OLB.
Why are you concerned about the balls, though? Just play. #SpiritOfShadiness
He would be a major upgrade. The defense still needs more playmakers. I know he wants to come here. He may even take a hometown discount.
Can't wait to see if Robert Kraft takes back that strong opening statement he made at the Super Bowl. Also, Brady should get at least six games. This goes to the integrity of the game. OK, that's over. Send along those questions.
Let's just briefly address Tom Brady, Deflategate and what I'm calling "The Spirit of Shadiness" in New England.
Take care everybody. We'll see ya next week.
They talked to Collins at the combine.

@DOrlandoAJC @ChefZay Is their a safety that sticks out in the draft that the falcons may have their eyes on?
