  1. Came here for the PMT references. Was not disappointed.
  2. We're talkin' bout practice.... We ain't talkin' bout the game! Any pick for a practice violation is too much. </thread>
  3. Cobb county gave them more money and its closer to the fans that go. Sucks, but it was a business decision. Turner field is a great venue (and the Braves didnt pay a dime to build it).
  4. As a resident of ATL, and being forced to watch more falcons games then I ever want, I can confirm he sucks. Do not sign this "beast". his biggest accomplishment was a FF reference on "The League"
  5. did you see the stats last year? I'd say he's doing an admirable job.
  6. Quinn has done a remarkable job with that defense. Talk about a unit of JAG's. Trufant has skill but needs more time to develop. They should have held onto grimes as well. Offense has been a different story, Shannahan is awful, Matt Ryan has looked like a shadow of his former self. I think they were hopping they could get one more year out of roddy white, and that just wasn't going to happen. they never draft OL/DL, and it shows. Dimitrof/pioli needs to go.
  7. Is it unlucky to change my team name to "Glass Jaw Geno"? I figure its only preseason.
  8. Too bad Chad Henne had an exceptional day. Now we can never figure out who is better
  9. In the spirit of being too lazy to look stuff up... Highest score of a jets opening day ever!
  10. I would take the likes of: Lesean Mccoy Chris Johnson Darren Mcfadden Matt Forte over MJD this year. But don't listen to me. I am starting Shonn Green. Clearly I am a dufus.
  11. Dude's got the best passer ratting of anyone one the roster: 158.3 I for one, am excited
  12. If by dirty work you mean always be two steps behind the WR/RB then no, he will make the tackle for a loss on most occasions. I was a huge supporter of Bart Scott until this season, you can tell our LBers are just too slow around the edge, and we 'once upon a time' claimed VG ate up blockers and made the defense more free to run all over the place, this is simply a bad excuse for poor play. Love the fire and intensity he brings to the field, just wish he had more talent to do it with! In Rex's 4th year as HC, we don't really need the old system guys (Scott/JL) to help integrate his 'new' defence...
  13. http://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2012/02/17/ranking-the-2012-free-agents-inside-linebackers/ Ranking the 2012 Free Agents: Inside Linebackers February 17th, 2012 | Author: John Breitenbach While not all of the players scheduled to become unrestricted free agents will hit the open market, this is still a great crop to choose from. There’s a strong mix of young guys entering the prime of their careers and productive veterans, who should come a bit cheaper. The first five players are all defensive leaders; foundation pieces defensive coordinators could build around. Three of them finished in the Top 10 of our overall inside linebacker rankings and six inside the Top 20. Linebacker-needy teams should be salivating over some of the prospects coming onto the market. There are a number of other role players available even if teams miss out on the top guys. Run-stuffing studs Dan Connor and Jovan Belcher (a restricted free agent) would make sense as two-down solutions, while Larry Grant, also restricted, offers a high-risk/high-reward option. 1) Stephen Tulloch, Detroit Lions Age as of September 1st, 2012: 27 2011 Grade: +20.8 Key Stat: Allowed just 8.1 yards per catch, good for second in the league. Behind The Numbers: We were stunned at how small the market was for one of the league’s best inside linebackers in the 2011 offseason. The Lions were able to snag him for a mere $3.25 million, but there’s slim chance they’ll be so lucky again. Tulloch is just a great all-around player, as adept in coverage as he is against the run. While he doesn’t grade out quite as well as some of the top players, it is worth bearing in mind he plays in the very publicized Wide-9 scheme that puts extra pressure on the linebackers. 2) David Hawthorne, Seattle Seahawks Age as of September 1st, 2012: 27 2011 Grade: +8.8 Key Stat: Has a +38.6 run defense grade over the past three years. Behind The Numbers: Hawthorne never quite lived up to his outstanding 2010 season, but was still a very good player for Seattle. His best performance came against Cleveland in Week 7 where he registered 11 tackles including seven stops. Hawthorne possesses more versatility than the other options on the market, having played both outside and inside for the Seahawks, which only adds to his value. If he can improve on some promising performances in coverage in 2011, there’ll be nothing holding him back from entering the elite class. 3) London Fletcher, Washington Redskins Age as of September 1st, 2012: 37 2011 Grade: +19.9 Key Stat: Allowed a QB rating of just 69.2, good for second best in the league. Behind the Numbers: Its remarkable how London Fletcher just keeps getting it done despite his age. While he may be a full decade older than some of the guys around him, he seems to have no trouble keeping up with them. Adding Fletcher would only be a short-term solution but, considering that facts that he still plays at such a high level and brings leadership qualities few possess, his age might not be such a significant turnoff. 4) Curtis Lofton, Atlanta Falcons Age as of September 1st, 2012: 26 2011 Grade: +12.8 Key Stat: Made 60 defensive stops, good for fifth in the league. Behind the Numbers: Lofton, just like Hawthorne, is a fantastic run defender. He possesses the instincts needed to identify the play and then the necessary strength to fill the hole and make the tackle. Its almost unbelievable he’s all the way down at fourth on this list, considering the impact he’s already had on the league. While not bad in coverage by any means, he does need to improve on the league-leading (among ILBs) five touchdowns he allowed last year. Still, he’s only entering his fifth year and has a lot of space to grow. 5) D’Qwell Jackson, Cleveland Browns Age as of September 1st, 2012: 28 2011 Grade: +18.3 Key Stat: His +18.0 grade against the run in 2011 was bested only by the 49ers’ duo, and the man below him on this list. Behind the Numbers: I feel a little like I’m repeating myself here as Jackson’s strengths and weaknesses mirror those just outlined for Lofton and Hawthorne; there are few better when it comes to filling running lanes and his work in coverage leaves a little to be desired. What sets Jackson behind the other two is probably his injury history, which might scare a few teams off come March 13th. 6) E.J. Henderson, Minnesota Vikings Age as of September 1st, 2012: 32 2011 Grade: +5.4 Key Stat: Was third in the league with a +18.1 grade against the run, and played 100 fewer snaps than Patrick Willis and Navarro Bowman. Behind the Numbers: Henderson has suffered through a number of injuries of late, and he’s certainly not an every-down player at this stage of his career, but he does bring almost a ridiculous level of physicality to the middle of a defense. He’s made shedding offensive lineman look like only a minor hindrance for so long that it’s difficult to see him ever not being good at it. PFF’s Sam Monson put it perfectly in his recent Shopping for Experience article. 7) Joe Mays, Denver Broncos Age as of September 1st, 2012: 27 2011 Grade: +10.8 Key Stat: Tied atop the league with a run stop percentage of 14.3. Behind the Numbers: Its amazing how far Mays has come since entering the league in 2008 as a sixth round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles. He showed some potential in the 2009 preseason before being traded to Denver for running back JJ Arrington or a sixth-round pick. At the time, it looked like a good deal for the Eagles, but this is another Josh McDaniels move that turned out to favor the Broncos. Mays became an integral part of Denver’s defense this year and put more heralded teammate DJ Williams to shame with his play against the run. Just as promising, he wasn’t a liability in coverage, grading out right about average. 8) Jameel McClain, Baltimore Ravens Age as of September 1st, 2012: 27 2011 Grade: +2.7 Key Stat: Graded above +1.0 on eight occasions in 2011. Behind the Numbers: The “other” inside linebacker in Baltimore may not be Ray Lewis, but he does a pretty good impression a lot of the time. The Ravens recognized he was better served as only a two-down player (he played just over 500 snaps) and excelled in that role. He is somewhat untested as a MLB in the 4-3 (and so would be better served either in a 3-4 or outside in a four-man front), but certainly has the tools to play anywhere. Playing in a Hall of Famer’s shadow will probably make him undervalued on the open market, so someone may find themselves a bargain. 9) Channing Crowder, NA Age as of September 1st, 2012: 28 2011 Grade: NA Key Stat: Had a +14.0 grade against the run in 2010. Behind the Numbers: A year off might have been exactly what Crowder needed to allow his body to heal. The former Dolphin had a pretty darn good year in 2010 and will be able to contribute for somebody if he’s anywhere close to that level again. It might be a good thing that Crowder fits best in only a limited role, seeing as that will give him more time to heal and adjust in his return to the NFL. 10. Jonathan Goff, New York Giants Age as of September 1st, 2012: 26 2011 Grade: NA Key Stat: Missed just two tackles in all of 2010. Behind the Numbers: Goff was quietly becoming a very good player before injury stole his 2011 season. He’s almost a copycat of Crowder, with the exception that he’s hitting free agency a year later. Some team will likely take a gamble that he can return to 2010 form where he was one of the better run defending inside linebackers. Goff is the most obvious low-risk, high-reward free agent in this class. I personally would love to see Curtis Lofton in a Jets jersey, but we all know Rex is going to go after any cast off's from A) Ravens or Steelers, so the point is probably lost here.
  14. The jets would have two Superbowl MVP Steelers on the team.... </thread>
