Thanks for stopping by. I have to go to open locker from from 11:45 to 12:30 so we couldn't go 12 noon to 1 today.
Thanks for stopping by. See y'all next Friday.
It's a collective effort.
Moses -- That would be a double steal. Help yourself and hurt the enemy.
Last time I checked they had 48 players under contract for 2014, including Tony. Ray Edwards falls off. There's a little room. They can create some more with restructures. Probably enough for 1 big signing or three moderate FA. They have to decide on Babineaux, Jerry and Peters (Sunday story).
MOSES -- If you get a stud in the top 5, a good Coach can get him ready. Also, spend some cash in FA on the line.
Cold! In the teens, but the key is that there won't be any snow!
Haven't heard from my Green Bay guys McGinn/Spoon/Dunne today.
Rippin -- There haven't been open receivers at times this year. Also, there hasn't been much time to find them. Other than the slide vs. New Orleans, I have no issues with the Ice Man.
Goal is to stay in the back of the first round.
Mr. -- Matlock was the man!
MOSES -- Hard to find them. The Reggie Whites, Bruce Smiths and Lawrence Taylor's don't come around often.
Mr. -- Never in football. Unfortunately, it has happened in the NBA.
SUPERIOS -- If the Falcons are in a position to draft either DE, LB, or OL with their first pick, which direction do you think they go? Assuming their OL is bringing back some injured players next year, will they go DE? Or is the obvious lack of a strong OL a bigger need considering Matt Ryan and is fondness of turf in his helmet?
D. LED --- I’d go OT. I can find LBs and DEs. Would consider Clowney and Barr, though. I would overstock the OL and get some competition going there.
DAVID DONNERLSON -- "Im a Big Guy,and I love to EAT!!!
What was your favorite dish this year? And did you cook anything for thanksgiving 2013?
D. LED – I’m like to eat, too!!!! Nothing special for Thanksgiving. Looking for to having a Brat (anther further clogging my heart arteries) in Green Bay.
RIPPIN -- "Good Afternoon DLed...Frequent visitor on Friday here...What do you think of this assessment of our cause of 3-9 this year? No particular order.
4) Ryan unable to read coverages w/88 double/triple coverage this year & find open receiver. "
D. LED – Agree with 1, 2, 3. Ryan’s a masterful reader of defenses. I absolve him of any of the blame for this. Rightly or wrongly. Sometimes, like in cards, you just have a bad hand. He’s had a bad hand with no pass protection, RB and WRS going down and teams catching up to their screen/draw quick game tactics.
SRUSHIN -- Will we see Antone Smith get any xtra carries? I assume he is in the backup role for a good reason but at some point you have to go with what looks to be a hot guy I would think. I know you have to work the guys you are paying the most money but that can be corrected in the offseason.
D. LED – See above. They may not want to much too much on Tone’s plate right now.
DAVID DONERLSON -- If the Falcons won't fire Dimitrov(like many sports radio callers are asking for), will they at least look into him cleaning house on both the Pro Personnel as well as College Scouting teams?
D. LED – I’m not sure, but whoever was over the revamping of the offensive line will have to explaining to Mr. Blank.
TOM SHOUPE -- I will get back to you next season when I have something positive to say.
D. LED – OK, Tom! Thanks for dropping by.
DAVID DONERLSON -- Will we see more of Antone Smith versus the Packers on Sunday?
D. LED – I don’t think so. He’ll have a package.
GEORGE THAMES -- The Falcon O Line and Defensive front 7 both need talent upgrades, which do they see as the most pressing and impactuful to success in 2014?
D. LED – Both lines will be address and three DTs are free agent. (Sunday story coming on those guys).
LEE -- what has changed so much from last year performance wise
D. LED – Perfect storm of change (36 percent of the roster), injuries (Julio, Biermann et al)and inexperience.
GA NATIVE -- Can the Falcons PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE stop running the same dang play as they did under Rankin Smith, up the middle to the goal line; oops, cant make the play; oops again, they wont let the lineman in!!! WHY do we repeatedly run this play game after game, season after season everyone knows what we will do!! .Good Grief--and PLEASE get an offensive line (coach); And I'm thinking too, Arthur should have held off on signing those checks to get the new stadium....not a good move at this time....
D. LED – That’s a football tradition. Something about the straightest path to no where or something like that.
