Schedule comes out this week then we can see how this shakes up, wouldnt be surprised if we went to Atlanta on Thursday Night again.
Difficult to be the goto guy from the whirlpool which is where Roddy spent most of last season.

Gonzo was there goto guy, has been for years. How many final second Ryan to Gonzo in the endzone have you seen? Vaccaro stopped one last year.

We must have just have a different definition of "goto guy".
Safety blanket = Goto guy. The person you goto when you must get something done.

Yours seems to be the one that they goto the most, for 2013 that was Harry Douglas.

Okay, safety blanket means tightend/stopgap. I remember when someone broke down the falcons-49ers game in NFCCG and a person pointed out Ryan usually throws to Roddy in big situations. Instead he threw to Tony but Tony was somewhat defended as well by SF's scheme. I also remember in 2012 the first drive in game one with us where Ryan threw deep to White that led to the falcons going up 7-0. Also against teams like cardinals, raiders, panthers(the first one), broncos, it was Roddy that outperformed Jone in receiving. Also Roddy had the bigger stats against Oakland and Arizona.

Re: 2014 NFC South Predictions

Saints 13-3
Falcons 12-4
Buccaneers 12-4
Panthers 8-8

Saints are steady
Bucs shock the world
Falclowns are healthy and back

Panthers are the turds of the south and learn a lesson about losing their entire WR corp.

saints sweep the division.

NFC south tops in the NFL.

2. Buccaneers - Lovie has his work cut out for him but he is a formidable coach and I do not seem him not making this team a lot better. He also is very familiar with Rivera and i see the Bucs giving the panthers hell .

3. Panthers
- Losses of Smith, Mitchell, Munnerlyn, Lafel, Ginn. Three of those are receivers and I do not see Cam Newton being able to make something of that in one off season.

4. Falcons - I do not see them recovering much from last year. They have becomes dysfunctional even with their weapons. On paper bringing in Steve Jackson should have rounded them off but it didnt.

For those that like them
I can agree with that. I might swap the Falcons and Panthers as the Panthers have literally no one to throw to. They will get some WR talent in the draft, but they will have their growing pains this year.

Re: 2014 NFC South Predictions

Saints first
Bucs, Panthers and Clowns tied for second.

Lovie has some talent on D, but he has a way to go with his offense. Panthers have a running game, but I don't know that old school'll play in the South these days. The Clowns... well.... I'm gonna miss Mike Smith in '15.

Man I love threads with poles.
