If Falcons can't beat the Browns next week it's time to start Ridder,
this season isn't going to get much easier, you gotta see what you got going forward.

Falcons could low key be 2-2 (Seahawks, then home to CLE) after another couple of wks. Here’s hoping for 0-4 :blessed:

Bro I know you had us going 14-3 but I’m trying to get a top 5 pick and an elite player (QB) at the top of next years draft. Mariota ain’t it and I need to see what Ridder is

But fukk trying to have another 7-10, 8-9 season. This is a tank season, let’s embrace it breh

I feel that, and I know we're rebuilding, but we have so many pieces that could be a part of our next winning team that their positive development should result in wins(or at least "good" losses like these first 2 weeks).

We end up with a top 3 pick(what we'll need to not overdraft a QB) then that means that we'll probably need to re-draft spots we've already tried to cover(C, RB, S, etc). I'd rather the 7-10 season that comes with all our young guys showing enough promise to hold their spots and we only have 1 or 2 spots we "need" to fill and can go BPA everywhere else.

Remember too breh, we gonna have west midtown colonizer money to spend in FA next year. We can damn near sign whoever we want. Hell, who needs Bryce Young when we can sign Lamar Jackson? :mjgrin:

I hear you but I don’t see us signing Lamar (that would be at least 25-30% of the cap minimum and we’d be hamstrung trying to build this roster up). I also don’t think we’d have the team to go after a QB like Lamar…I don’t think we’re a QB away from being a title contender.

I think the play is evaluate the roster, continue to build the team through the draft and draft a QB on a rookie deal to build around a young and developing squad. I don’t want meaningless wins in a rebuilding year. I appreciate being competitive so I can see who needs to be a part of this moving forward but let’s not kid ourselves, this isn’t a good team. It’s has a few players on an overall meh roster

We're saying the same thing: let the young buls work, see what we got, and continue to build. Difference is, I think that if we do that then it will directly translate into victories if the kids we got are worth shyt. Ain't no way that

-we get the Twin Towers the ball
-AJ shows out as a top 5-7 CB
-our young pass rushers get home
-Allgeier runs solid
-OL continues to work as a unit
-our safety duo holds down the back end
-Jake and Grady stay probowl-ish level and don't fall off a cliff
-etc, etc, etc....

and we finish 3-14.

It doesn't work like that. If we've started this rebuild on the right foot, made good picks the past 2 years, and implemented potentially winning schemes, then that means we WONT be picking top 3. If we are, then you minus whale have the pitchforks out for Smith and Fontenot because that means they're not the guys for the job. I just looked over the last 10 drafts and not once was a QB drafted in the top 5 by a coach that wasn't going into his 1st or 2nd year, with very few teams keeping their 3rd+ year coach with a bottom 5 record at all. It just doesn't work like that. We need to see progress, however incremental, starting now.

You can see progress and it not necessarily be reflected in the overall record. Falcons were 7-2 in one score games last year, they already look like a better team than last year and yet are 0-2 in one score games. I think we’ll continue to see young guys contribute on a thin roster and be better for it, I just don’t expect it to result in wins which is a best case scenario long term for the Falcons. If you’re hoping this is a 7-10, 8-9, 9-8 type of season as a Falcons fan I think your priorities are misplaced

I’d rather we be bad and get the draft picks needed to improve to compete for a title not just to be mediocre
