    Ain't hard to figure

    The Falcons have been said to be frauds. And even when trying to explain why the Falcons have been struggling the last 3 games to people who seem to know the game, they apparently don't think I know what I'm talking about so it's time to go into repetition mode so the idiots might grasp a simple premise. It gets old repeating myself but obviously it needs to be done.

    Since 2000 the Falcons have ignored ALL the O-line positions,...AND the linebacking corps in the draft and free agency.

    Please allow me to repeat that,...

    Since 2000 the Falcons have ignored ALL the O-line positions,...AND the linebacking corps in the draft and free agency.

    Oh yeah the crows drafted TWO 1st round tackles the last 8 years,...after that? <crickets> One of those picks retired last Spring(Sam Baker), Matthews remains and has played fairly well so far. Baker was chosen cause his daddy is Arthur Blank's buddy and Matthews was chosen cause of his family's name.

    The last LB drafted high was Sean Weatherspoon and he went to Arizona. The Falcons let him go when his contract closed.

    In 2009 the Falcons had the chance to stock the O-line but traded their 2nd round pick to acquire,...Tony Gonzales. Turns out Falcons GM Dimitroff and the Chiefs organisation are close buds. The Chiefs were ready to move on w/o Gonzo so the Falcons waste a pick on a guy who looked like he was running in sand.

    How do the Patriots, Steelers, Cowboys, Cardinals, Panthers and Packers afford spending cap money on O-linemen while the Falcons cite cap reasons as to why that unit has been staffed with less-than-top-talented players. Maybe those top tier teams are better at dealing with the cap or maybe they're cheating like the Niners used to do in the '90's.

    Matt Ryan, according to the media, is an average QB. For years the media never gave the guy credit and now that he's struggling(not if you see his stats), they now are dog piling on Ryan and it's not his damn fault people. The Niners last Sunday should've exposed the line but noooooooooo,...it's Ryan who's the problem? pfffft

    So to repeat it again,...

    Since 2000 the Falcons have ignored ALL the O-line positions,...AND the linebacking corps in the draft and free agency.

    The Falcons usually had a strong running game to back Ryan up in the early season, except for the Giant game. To beat Eli you have to pass. Then come mid-season, the other team usually had better running stats and won on that factor. Ryan has to have a solid running game, then everything works.

    You're correct sir,...in Ryan's 1st game in the NFL he, on the first play of the game against the Lions in 2008, tossed a 70 yard TD pass. Michael Turner rushed for over 200 yards. Ryan had under 200 yards passing that day. But you are wrong that the Falcons didn't run against the Giants effectively. Think the Falcons had around 60 yards rushing but those runs later after the rookie Coleman went down were wonderful quality runs. Guess ya had to see the game but yep,...like most any QB, a run game enhances he chances.

    What I think would be good for the Falcons is to watch for that L.S.U. running back, and when he declares for the draft trade for the No. 1 pick that year. If you can't get him then the F.S.U. RB isn't bad either. He originally wanted to go to U/M but all some kind of alumni scandal involving paying players surfaced and they got sanctioned by the NCAA. That's why the Canes haven't been up to snuff lately, a lot of recruits went elsewhere.

    If...
