    Good call. The only old veteran I dont want to lose is Milloy. We need his leadership for the next couple of years while we rebuild, and I think he can still play. Weiner isnt terrible either...I wouldnt mind him staying. Everyone else need to go to be replaced with younger guys.
    Ditto.

    I called the Rod Coleman thing. I think Babs has proven himself.

      Apparently we're not done making cuts...I found this on AFMB too...

      I live in miami, and was listening to to him today and the one thing he was talking about all the cuts today except a couple of guys these moves were made because of injuries. Listen guys i love alge to but his production had dropped alittle because of them and there not getting any better when dealing with knees all the time. people have to understand they are rebuilding and there are going to be some cuts that people wonder about. Hell miami just cut the heart of there team because of injuries in zach thomas.

      He was also saying that they got down to about 17 mil today and that TD wants to be in the range of 23-25 under when free agency starts so expect som more in the coming days.

      Third thing he was saying is the same things we have been hearing that they want to get stronger up the middle and the lines. He said if d-mac is there when we pick we will take him, if not expect one of the d-tackes!
      I was kinda thinking we may end up taking McFadden...but honestly I think it's just a rumor to get Dallas to bite...but I wouldn't be surprised if he was our pick...we're creating a new team, so basically at this point, none of us can really know for sure what's going to happen, and very few players are safe.

        McFadden behind our offensive line would be horrible. Then add in likely no successful passing game.

        Honestly, compared to when the season started we really look like we are in bad shape. I mean, if we had Vick last year I felt we would have been at least .500, but now we don't seem set, both starter and depth wise, at any position really.

          i really agree. expect some bad seasons up ahead but hopefully it will be worth it.

          our needs scream jake long. the general consensus here is that no qb, including matt ryan, or dmac will be efficient behind our line. we have to take jake long if he is there or take the next best one with one of our second rounders.

          and i guess TD will be aggressive in FA. im not completely sold on michael turner however and offensive linemen will ask for the world. i would like colin cole from the packers but he is restricted. we have so many needs!

          do you guys really see us taking a TE in the third or earlier? we need a DT, LT, RB, QB. those positions are quintessential to a franchise and TE just isnt too important right now. i would like the falcons to sign a FA. a guy like stephen alexander or marcus pollard for a few years will be enough imo. when we become more situated regarding our main positions, we can take a prospect in the draft. kevin boss was taken in the fifth and proved very worthy. any steals at TE in this draft?

            Like I've said, if they think Matt Ryan is the guy they should take him. Sure, we have a bad offensive line but three years of growing are going to be needed reguardless for a quarterback. If they do not think he is that guy then Jake Long or Sedrick Ellis is the answer.

            I really hope our class from last year steps up. Jamaal Anderson looked horrible last year, Houston looked horrible most of the time, Blalock was OK, Nicholas was OK, Milner looked alright before injury, Irons was a bonehead but he has potential, Laurent looked good but had some drops and fumbles.

            But I expect Chris Houston to step up, along with Blalock to a lesser extent. Nicholas should be good too, he is a playmaker. I don't think Milner is the answer at TE, and I think Irons should be a dime rather than a nickel.

            We really need that class to be good though.

            Ugh, I can't stand losing.

              I disagree. Might just be me though. If Jerious Norwood can suceed behind our line, I can't see why D-Mac can't. Espically since we are almost surely upgrading it in FA.

                Maybe. I doubt he can turn this franchise around, though. Runningbacks can not do that.

                  I could see were you are coming from though. Personally, I'd like us to build off of our D and become a run it down your throat kind of team, until the opportune time to grab a QB comes up.

                    We need a strength. That is why I wanted Rex Ryan, I believe we could have won some games next year, just by an aggressive, fast defense and a conservative offense.

                    If you have inexperienced, talented and athletic players on defense the way to make up for the deficiencies is by blitzing and making plays, confusing the quarterback, not playing a solid zone with a few blitzes thrown in. We don't have the veteran talent for that. Especially with a lackluster front four pass rush.

                      Not that it is really important, but we are going to be really bad in Madden lol.

                        As long as we have Norwood, Roddy, Boley, and Hall, we won't be too bad in Madden. Plus with Williams and Stone at Safetys...

                          You cant score on me with me controlling Jimmy Williams at FS. I am just too good. I think I had a 14 pick, 100 tackles season controlling him.

                          And how good we are in Madden matters...alot.

                          And if we traded with Dallas...their 2 firsts and Marion Barber...I would go into the bathroom and whack off with nothing but that in mind. No joke.

                            Wont you guys atleast give Mantrez Milner a shot at the starting job this year? As for Davis I doubt they would draft him in the second when hes already like an Alge clone IMO.

                              I agree....The main reason the last coaching staff brought Milner in was because of his blocking ability so right now I think he have a good shot at winning the job if not we will sign a somebody off F/A.

                                Two questions for Falcons fans: is Crumpler any good, and worth being picked up by a team to be a starting TE?
