I'd give up Beasley and a cup of coffee for nothing in return.
Or Jarvis Jones
He was middle -late 1st round. Steelers don’t draft top 10 like the Falcons
Quinn is a good head coach. He has not been a good one for Atlanta since the Super Bowl fiasco, and he won’t be. Falcons should let him know they would be happy for him to find a new team; excusing any buyouts. We can either blow this thing up or we can let it continue to disintegrate.
I think most of you guys are forgetting half the team is injured. Most of the guys playing right now shouldn't even sniff the field once the team is back to full health.
The remaining guys seem uncompetitive. Injuries happen every year. It should be better than this.
You sure as öööö cant spend half your cap on a QB and have money left for quality backups. Maybe with a cheap QB you would have money for that...
What was the alternative? Ryan is a top 8 QB in the league. His numbers are still solid this season and he has been hit more than any other QB. He was unwilling to take a lesser deal, so he can live with the consequences of a subpar supporting cast I suppose. Brees and NO went through this same thing just a few years back.
All of these great teams with QBs still on their rookie deals will have the same decision to make in a few years...and they almost all will make the same one that the Falcons made. They will pay their franchise QB...until one day when one doesn't and finds success via that route. There is a path of drafting and grooming the next wave of controllable young QB to replace more expensive players coming off their rookie deal. It just historically has not been attempted.
I was thinking about this as well the other day. Conventional wisdom has always been that stability at the QB position is vital, and given how strongly entwined QB play and team success are, it's easy to understand why. But I'm wondering if there will come a point in which teams will make that bold decision to let a franchise QB walk, and if that happens, it would seem like the agents of these QBs will lose some leverage and some of the ballooning of contracts will subside a bit.
Or maybe the NFL will go the route of the NBA and just inflate the salary cap so much that ridiculously large contracts just become the norm, and you have teams just looking for ööööty free agents to throw money at.
In the next couple of years the Falcons might have to start thinking about drafting the possible successor to Matt Ryan
Quinn is a good DC. Guy is ööööing awful as a head coach. Tired of coach bro selling sunshine and brotherhood.
They are at least 3 years away from that. His arm strength isn't great, but he can still play QB in this league for several more years. The scheme might need to change over time, but QB is the least of this team's worries. The team needs to get healthy and fix the D. I think fully healthy, the D wouldn't be bad. I would focus on the lines in the draft. Get a big guy up the middle on the DL in the 1st round and look for OL depth/upgrades in the draft.
Dude we were a brain fart away from winning the Super Bowl 2 years ago. Doesn’t that count for something?
Yeah but that's going to work itself out. His deal was front loaded so the team will have less and less commitment (financially) to him. Will open up more for others.
I would like Quinn to just once lose his temper on the sideline .. just once. Having said that I think he deserves one more year at least. Sark and Manuel on the other hand....
That is interesting. But still, nobody wins if they have a crapton of injuries. A team has gotta stay healthy to win the super bowl.
time to join the rest of the league with a multi threat qb. ryan's lack of mobility is killing the falcons. zero mobility. all a defense has to do is pin their ears back and meet in the middle 7 yards behind the line.
Geeze this color guy sounds drunk. He's struggling to form a sentence.
Byron Leftwich moved up the coaching ranks fast.
