Oh, and Turner's hot garbage and Gonzales is too slow now.
No because their schemes are a better fit they just didnt have the talent like we do and it showed last night.

Ask yourself when was the last time you guys feared Michael Turner? He isnt the same thats why his reps are getting cut and he is one dimensional.

TonyG has been slow for the last 2/3 seasons so why is that even a question? I didnt say he sucked

Re: Atlanta game

I think Turner is declining, too. He got stuck in the backfield way too much last season.

Question is: When's the last time we feared the Falcons? we have won 10 of the last 12 if I recall correctly...

But wasn't that from the bad offensive line that Saintkiller was talking about?

Thats been the reason behind their success with a 13 win and 10 win campaign as of the recent years.


I think the Falcons need to watch footage of their 2008 season because they had more of an identity that season than they ever had under Mike Smith and co, at least they stuck to doing what they do best that season. Thats truly been a more successful year for the Falcons than any other year under Matt Ryan/Mike smith.
Thats when Turners was "The Burner" as in speed, do you think he is fast and explosive now?

He thinks one quarter of preseason does mean something. The Falcons also showed their hand in opening the playbook while most teams go vanilla their first couple of pre season games. They keep it up and they are going to give opposing teams a ton of tape before the season even starts.

... gee, I don't know.. 3rd downs? Last year Gonzalez had 53 catches resulting in a 1st down, according to Yahoo Sports. You don't want the Falcons to utilize that, fine.

I guess you really think an "aggressive" scheme is just bombs away, and you are envisioning 50-70 yd bombs to J. Jones every offensive possession. Chances are, that's not going to happen.

The question wasn't whether he was slow. You said he wasn't part of the falcons offense anymore. I just pointed out that he was a big part of the falcons offense just last season.

Probably, but the best running backs are able to make big gains out of absolutely nothing all the time.
