    Good not great signing. IMO Turner could be a FA bust. Reasons for why he got his high yards per carry could have been because defense's were wore down from playing against LT all game and he had Lorenzo Neal as his fullback and running behind a good O-Line. He could pan out but I am just not sold on him yet.

      Both would be GREAT moves by Atlanta...
      I agree with this but at the same time I could see the Falcons target Jake Long with the #3 pick and than hope to land Henne or Flacco in the 2nd.

            I dont think Brohm has fallen much. i still like him more then Ryan but hes not worth #3 money. trading down will cost less and be better in my opinion

              Dunn will be cut most likely, even though I like the guy a lot as a player and a person he has lost more than a step.

              But I believe his blocking and receiving abilities will allow him to catch on with another team. Dallas maybe? I'm not sure how well Barber can block or catch. Dunn should be successful in a Kevin Faulk type role.

                  Barber does it all he just lacks long speed and he needs to adjust his energy output if he's gonna be the starter. He will be tired if he runs like a madman all the time.

                    As do I. It just looks like it is the end for Warrick though. He has always relied on his quickness, and now it's just not there anymore.

                      As for the draft I hope Atlanta takes Jake Long. He and Blalock would be a dominant left side and would plow the way for Turner. Chris Redman would serve as the stop-gap for whomever the team took in round 2.
                      and imagine if we also signed Maurice Williams, we would likely cut Forney and Wiener and be left with this:
                      Long - Blalock - McClure - Clabo - Williams

                        Dunn is all but gone, he will be paid top 5 HB money next year and 3 millions is saved by cutting him.

                          Dunn is an awesome guy. he does so much for his community. I like him alot. But I'm sure glad that Turner is out of my division.

                            Wow. That is pretty exciting.

                            Too bad the chance of Long falling to us at 3 is decreasing and decreasing.

                            So far, I want:

                            1. Jake Long
                            2. Matt Ryan
                            3. Sedrick Ellis
                            4. Glenn Dorsey
