I haven't read one inkling of a rumor about Gordon or Shorts. That pretty much means the towel has been thrown. Unless Kevin Cone or Drew Davis are the next out of nowhere superstars, this is going to be painful. As good as Ryan is, he's no miracle worker. He can play with horrendous offensive lines, but now you are asking him to throw to receivers that can't get open? Terrible I think I may jump on the anti Dimitroff bandwagon, because I thought he was smarter than this. He knows damn well the receiving corps is in dire need of a playmaker right now, especially with Roddy potentially out for a few weeks. Brian Robiskie has been a flop his entire career, there is a reason why he was unemployed.
I was thinking the same thing especially since the bye week would have been the perfect time to get a new WR indoctrinated in the offense. I don't think they are tanking on purpose because I truly believe that if they don't at least make it respectable neither TD or Mike Smith will be here to reap the "benefits" of tanking.
The acquisition of Robiskie a guy who the Lions cut, a team with no WR depth behind Megatron is a joke. I didn't really expect them to go after Gordon but you mean to tell me that Robiskie is the best you could do? Emmit you say that Matt Ryan is not a miracle worker well thats what he has to be if the Falcons are not going to be a 6-10 football team.
