On the playoffs at least. The Falcons are beat up and inconsistent. I don't know how you fix his steaming pile of crap that is the 2013 Falcons. :oops:

My thoughts exactly, yeah we are 1-3 but we have not looked overmatched or like we didnt belong on the field and have had a chance to win every game. The Falcons will get it together and this might be good for Matt since he has to do so much right now for the team to succeed, when everyone gets healthy and can help him out he should look even better.

The thing I'm worried about with Matt is that he does not look comfortable. He's rushing throws, making bad throws because he's not setting his feet, etc. I believe that this is because he has happy feet at this point, and rightfully so. In order for Matt Ryan to play his best, he needs to feel confident in his line. You can see that if his first read isn't there, he starts looking for an escape route. If the offensive line does develop over the year and can give him a pocket to work in, the Falcons will really come on strong when they get healthy. If the offensive line cannot give him a consistent pocket, I think that we'll still finish with a winning record, but we might not make the playoffs, and even if we do, I don't like our chances.

That's what I see also. The OL is not giving the QB time for multiple reads and he is getting hit too often after the pass. Big mistake by TD to decimate the OL without sufficient depth. Trie Clabo had dropped some but he sure looked better against us in Miami than anything we had except Blalock. Add the lack of pass rush and the young secondary is at risk througout the game. IMHO it's all TD fault. :beef:

Here's hoping that Trueblood can make a magic transformation into an above average tackle and Baker/Holmes can get their s*** together at the other tackle spot.

Hopefully getting S-Jax back will bring some balance back to the Falcon offense as well. At least defenses respect him vs. the Quizz/Snelling show.

I think Thomas D. made a calculated move to get out the older players and
take the hit this year to be able to come back next year.

We just had too many holes to fill, and he's just hoping for ...500

It could take more than a year but I doubt it. If we draft 1 and 2 on defense, maybe
get a free agent; with the experience our rookie corners are getting we could get good on defense quick. I like a good defense more then a good offense.

If that's true, why bring back Tony? Why bring in Jackson and Umenyiora?
