It's been lacking for a while now and Roby was part of those lackluster ST units, though he was an above average gunner.

McM needs to rework his methods or be gone.

Believe it or not we just drafted 3 players who'll upgrade our special teams.

Dramatically.

Disagree. I hope he makes the team by some miracle. He was out of the game last year. He has no ties to the Saints, nor their current playbook. He was a really solid guy and if he has a little left then good for him.

Re: Falcons Sign Courtney Roby

Did they sign Vilma and will he be the starter week 1?

No. And there is no way they will. He couldn't pass their tryout. I love the man, but he is past his playing days.

Solid player. Hopes he makes their cut and earns some more coin. There was a point where I thought he could break into the WR role but it never materialized. As long as we keep greasing the skids and they keep skid britches we will continue to roll on em.

...if they are able to stay on the field.

Still, it can't be all about the players - I'd put much of the responsibility on the coach. Especially since there's been changes to the ST roster along the years but the results have pretty much stayed the same.

+1 and no doubt. McM is on a very short leash this season.

Improve or bye, bye.

He must've started with a leash the length of I-70 as long as they've kept him around.
