I get these thoughts, I do. But I think we have a number of players that deserve better than wasting a year of their career playing for nothing but a salary. We're 2-3, and while I doubt we have a shot at the playoffs as it stands, especially with RR and JDR until week 18, it's not a lost cause yet. I'd sack them now to give the players a chance to deliver something with a new guy in charge, if not a whole new staff..

Those thoughts are the silver lining, not an alternative to winning.

Im all in favor of shit canning those two losers. I donít think we have the personnel to win with or without them honestly. We need a draft and a free agency period run by real football minds to get some more horses here.

There is only one way to get a fanbase back. Win. Harris isnít magic. Neither is magic. Lol. They need at least one full off season. The fans will be back eventually. Firing Ron now would feel good and i guess you could promote EB and see how the players respond. I just think there is way more to it than that. At least one full off season worth of fixing. He literally was handed shit on a stick and the season started.

Thanks for the numbers. I do think he flashes a lot on the field. He's one of the few brights spots so far IMO. yes he seems to disappear for a while at times, but through 4 games we've seen some obvious progress towards what we know he can be.

Re: FALCONS PRE GAME THREAD

There was one play v Chicago that, to me at least, showed his game maturing. If I recall correctly, it was a draw play and he came rushing with outside contain, saw the run play, switched his leverage and shed his block immediately coming down the line and making the tackle. I don't remember anything like that in year one.

To me it's one of the signs he's developing. Will he stay with the team? I couldn't say at this point. But whether he develops into an all pro or not, I don't think he's a bust and I can see him having a career in the NFL. Maybe he's the next Clowney?

Right now I just hope he and Sweat scare the living daylights out of Ridder.

He's clearly a solid pass rusher. There have already been so many plays where he applied pressure just could not get the sack. Hope he works out long term but understand it's a business.

Re: FALCONS PRE GAME THREAD

With Forrest and Reaves going to IR, it looks like they elevated safety Burgess & linebacker De'Jon "Scoota" Harris from the practice squad. I was really hoping to see Jabril Cox, but there must be something going on there.

problem with those stats is that Young is very undisciplined. It will brink up the pressure stats, but he over pursues giving up big runs a LOT!! when he blew up his knee he was having the same issues and the team defense got a lot better when he went on IR. According to Rivera at the time the rise in the defense was due to playing more disciplined and it sure looked like it. So when does he improve on that front?

Empty stats if you ask me. He never makes any game changing plays. No sack, fumble- change the momentum type of plays. I watched the Ravens and Pittsburgh and Watt is just a menace all game long.

I think a lot of that is sustained success on defense is so difficult in the NFL. I only see 3 sacks not the 4 listed above but that puts him on pace to be in same ball park as Micah Parsons who a lot of people on here feel is a game changer. We are always more critical of own team. Take solace in we have a very good edge rusher that doesn't sexually assault his younger teammates like Parsons.

Watt is the best in the league. Might as well say Josh Allen is no Patrick Mahomes

But that is who Chase is supposed to be. The best or one of the best.

I hear what you are saying and that is a fine expectation with the 2nd overall pick but I will gladly take top ten sack production. Of course I do hope he improves his game.

Well, why not Archuletta or Doughty while we're at it (speaking of painful memories)?

Really bummed about Reeves. I've always thought when he was actually playing D (and not just special teams) he was very effective, and I was hoping that he was going to get a chance for some more playing time. Sounds like he may be out for the season - -a partial ACL tear is not something to sneeze at.
