Re: Falcons Extreme Makeover

Sounds like it's house cleaning time in ATL.

Crumpler is good but he seems to always be battling injuries.

I'm surprised Crumpler was the only good player on the offensive side of the ball, or at least the only one that I recall from the top of my head. I can't believe they did this all for a coordinator thats going to be there for a year or two. It's day like these where I'm glad DS is my owner.
There is no way in Hades that a former all pro tight end will sign for the Vet minimum.

He would be great here, but some other team that needs tight end may sign him, like the Bengals, Seahawks, or Carolina.

Absolutely! I would rather go after Joey Harrington. He is still young, but most importantly he has experience in the NFL and playing in the WCO.

Re: Falcons Extreme Makeover

Crumpler is probably headed to Seattle... that would make the most sense IMO... former coach Jim Mora Jr.. and then you'd be giving Matt Hasselbeck a good TE, something which I believe they lack.

The Skins should look into Rod Coleman though. He's on the older side at 31, however I still think he can be a valuable player in the DT position.

Re: Falcons Extreme Makeover

Crumpler is a great TE and would be great for the Redskins' situation, but the Redskins wouldn't be a good fit for him. He's just too good to play second fiddle to one of the 7 or so TEs in this league who are better than him.

Re: Falcons Extreme Makeover

No way Crumpler would work out here, too many guys that want the ball. Don't take away any of Cooley's action.

I like Leftwich & he grew up in DC as a Skins fan, but that's the ONLY thing that fits about him coming here. He has a ridiculous wind up & is already a big man, which makes his long wind up longer. The WCO is just not a good fit for him.

Lol, read the first part again I was kidding during the start of that post. Then I transitioned to how I feel about the situation. I personally despise the Veteran Minimum suggestion due to the fact that it is one of the most over-suggested solutions to bringing in players over the age of 30.

The veteran minimum usually goes through when you have a player that

1. Your not sure about
2. Usually over the age to 35
3. Feels your a contender and/or would like a chance to play for their childhood team.
4. Has strong ties to your coach and qualifies for point 1.

Re: Falcons Extreme Makeover

All I wanna know is WHY in the HELL you cut Algae? He's like, one of the only 3 bright spots on your offense, much less your whole frickin team. The Falcons I think are taking after Bill Parcells recent doings in Miami and following suit.

But, Crumpler though? Why not trade and try to get a pick or re-sign him or something! ANYTHING! I guarantee you next year all the analysts are gonna rag em for doing it when they've got 13 points through 10 games. Lol@ Falcons...Man, Vick really boned 'em.

Maybe, they tried shopping Algae around and couldn't get anything worthwhile. It doesn't make much sense.

The party line is that OC Mike Mularky favors blocking TE's over recieving ones so Crumpler would have little use in the offense. However I disagree with the move myself.

As I stated before I don't know how long Mularky is going to be the OC, especially on a team thats going to suck for the next five years. Personally I see him either being fired or taking a better job on a team that has a chance to score a TD or two. In the mean time Mularky is just trying to give himself something to do. So in my opinon, cutting your best offensive player just because the OC for the time being doesn't favor recieving TE's is a mistake. It's times like this where I'm glad I'm not a Falcons fan. Hail!!!

Coleman and Leftwich are decent possibilities (and I supppose to a smaller extent-Crocker). Overall though nothing that really impresses me.
Pat Yasinskas was speculating in an article yesterday that they may be looking to trade Dunn for picks so he still may be on the way out.

I agree with you on the Falcons cuts, nothing impresses.

Re: Falcons Extreme Makeover

I've been a leftwich fan since marshall, and would love to see him here, but i think he's still got some left in the tank. I think he goes somewhere where he gets an opportunity to start. He's got heart and a gunslinger's mentality, which can lead to turnovers... that's his drawback... but he's a lot like brett favre.

Actually, he's a lot like a young QB (who shall remain nameless) who played for the Redskins some time ago. Lots of heart, strong arm, intincts of a blind rhino and just as mobile.
