Samuels with Grimes on the other side and Dauta playing the nickel. I don't know guys and the master mind SP will be out for the year. The Falcowns got a little better today.

Congrats for not being a Homer, and looking at it from a football standpoint. And to all who said we over reached and paid too much, you need to wake up and smell the coffee! A 7th round pick for a 4 time pro-bowler. If you guys would have made that trade you would be saying it was the trade of the decade! Oh yea, and here you go too!

2011 - 61 targets 4.4 yards per pass (#3 in NFL) 67% success rate (#3 in NFL) 2.0 yac (#2 in NFL)

He's still good, but there's really no one cover corner out there that Brees can't find a way to beat. This may improve the Falcons chances against other teams, but I don't see it as being any real factor against us.

He's only played against us once since Brees has been in N.O. he had 5 tackles no INTs. We did beat them 48-22 but its not a lot to go on cuz that was the only game he played against us. I think he's still good enough to start. I think he'll have some trouble with this division but we just have to see. I see him as more of a great route jumper more than anything. He's a high risk high reward type of CB. I've seen him get burned before because of his risk taking. Its a good pickup for the Falcons can't hate on it, at the same time I don't see Brees really struggling with throwing on his side of the field because I feel confident Colston can out physical & out jump him. He def can't cover Graham.

This is has Blanks stamp written all over it. Falcons are 1-11 vs SP/ Brees Saints era in NFCS. They are trying to find a way of stoping the saints passing game. If Smith loses 2 division games again this season vs the Saints, I would not be surprised to see him replaced next season.

No, not really. Pro baller pass tense, you want the CB during his PB year caddy. I think he's very good, but I also know he comes from weak QB divisions, and Eli is an interception machine.

I think it was a great move. One you have no choice but to do. It explains why probably Blank didn't care about lofton, and the money spent. I think everyone agrees your much better with him. Im just interested to see how he responds to a division only great to elite QB's. He has his work cut out for him. But its a great accusation.

Time to make the DOMENuts !!!!

There was a guy on the Lions site asking why we went after him last year, and let him go by this year. The rest of us listed a whole bunch of reasons. Don't feel bad (for those who do) that you didn't get him either. He is too old, declining performance last year, too big of a contract for only a few 'good' years.
