Matt, Roddy, Julio, TongG, Michael T, Harry Douglas > MJD and a better online thats all he had to work with so the only thing he could do was run and be simple with Blaine Gabbert at QB.

Even with a garbage O-line he still could have did more with us than the Jaguars.

Re: Atlanta game

Last I heard Gonzo was thinking about retirement... If you're already thinking it, you're already there...

Yes but we had one of the best O-Lines in the league to protect Matt and Michael Turner wasnt hot garbage then either. Most of the time we would win by the skin of our teeth do to the conservative play calling. This past season we got Julio and Jacquizz to become more explosive Mike Mularkey isnt a aggressive OC so he held the offense back.

He isnt a big part of our O so it doesnt matter, he didnt even get a ball thrown his way lastnight. Wish he would have retired so we wouldnt have to pay him so much.

I don't understand. So you're saying now that you've got a worse offensive line and Turner is hot garbage, the falcons will be better?

With Dirk we attacked right of the gate with a screen and more vertical routes than we have ever seen before. The conservative Atlanta Falcons are history and thats exactly what we needed because we have the personnel to play aggressive football.
No. You can't.

Gonzales had 875 yards, a 68.9 reception percentage (better than the QB throwing to him) and 7 touchdowns last season. Sure looks like he's a HUGE part of the falcons O.

Dont burst his bubble. Let him go on thinking all this. He has a long fall come regular season.

C'mon man, you know the Falcons don't have too far to fall... They haven't done much to "rise up"
