    Eep! A new Falcons forum! We're all back to an even playingfield! lol...but...I'm STOKED about us picking up Schulters...he's going to help this team out a LOT.

      Jason Webster injured his groin in Wednesday's practice, out indefinitely. Jimmy Williams to start.

        Glad to see Jimmy can shone his skills. iloxygenil and I where discussing this the other day, but who are some of the guys you want in the draft?

        Assuming we get 2 firsts, I'd like to see us get either Lynch, Ginn or Landry

          I can't wait to see it...I don't care if he gets beat a few times...a young guy with loads of potential, learning what to do at the Pro level and how to adapt, vs a vet getting beat...I'll take it. I wanna see Jimmy do well, I wanna see him adapt to the pro game. I also wonder if with Schulters coming in if MAYBE he'll steal some snaps from Crocker...or if he'll play nickel...I hate to see Webster hurt for depth reasons. Who are we going to have step up? Rossy? no thanks...not unless Jennings is full time return guy...because last year Allen wasn't up to both.

          I am thinkin Jimmy on the field is a big time positive for us. Especially since he'll be out there every snap. I know he's going to be able to make some plays...I hope he makes the coaching staff look stupid for waiting this long to play him. Here's to Jimmy and Deangelo's first of MANY starts together over the next few years

            Oh yeah...and in the draft...I REALLY would be so happy to see Ginn here...I know we don't need to spend another first round pick on a wideout...especially not one with bust potential...but could you imagine having 4 guys who run legit 4.3 or better? Vick + Norwood + Lelie + Ginn...WOW...just imagine...and Jenkins isn't slow at 4.41...that'd be exciting to see =) Unleash the Vick!

            But in all honesty...If we can get Samardja (sp?) to slip into the 2nd round to us...that'd be the best value prolly...simply because he is a Finneran type guy...goes out makes tough catches...but he's faster than Brian...I dunno...

            I am really worried about defense as well...and now with Webster getting hurt AGAIN...could we look to a pick of a guy like Antoine Cason from Arizona? I know we'd have a lot of money tied up in DBs...but man...I'd sure love to see another quality corner for depth...also could let us be flexible (if we get a DC with some imagination) with Jimmy's skill set. Let him play corner, but sometimes allow him to flow into a Safety role and put Cason opposite Hall with Jimmy and Crocker back...letting Milloy take a breather. Then again...a Saftey would be a novel idea for us to draft...since we beat ourselves by not picking one up this season. Imagine Pat Watkins in the 4th instead of Crocker...man that would have been brilliant.

            Or who knows...if we had passed on Jimmy and let Detroit take him we'd have gotten Bullocks...that'd have been cool too. I am just hoping defense starts to step up...DE is also a HUGE concern especially if we don't get Kerney back in here for CHEAP. Could look to trade up for a guy like Gaines Adams maybe...or wait and see if a Lamarr Woodley type falls to us...and with 2 firsts...who knows what could happen. Especially since we don't have any pressing NEEDS...other than WR coach and DC...

              Right now I'm just really interested to see how well Jimmy Williams will play in his first start, the man has a ton of potential and we could have the next deadly duo of CB's in him and DeAngelo.

                Yes it would be one heck of a deadly duo. I just hope he can pan out, but i think he will. the potential is without a doubt there

                  Those 2 playing up to their potential could definately put us atop all of the CB combos in the league. But...who knows...maybe we like Jimmy at Safety...that could be fun too...and draft a guy like Cason...

                  I'm hoping we leave Webster and Mathis off the 53 man roster next season...if that means we have to draft a couple more DBs early on...I'm fine with that...I'm sick of people who don't belong in the NFL being on our roster. I would be much happier with our depth chart looking like this next season

                  LCB: Deangelo / Cole
                  RCB: Jimmy / Cason
                  SS: Milloy / Rouse
                  FS: Schulters / Lowe

                  I mean...lets cut the crap...we have an almost elite team...lets seperate the wheat from the chaff...if that means Mora is let go so he can get over his crushes on 49ers that suck at the game of football...then so be it.

                      That's fine as well...Landry is cool...I just am not sold on any player from the SEC.

                      Jimmy hurt his ankle...didn't practice today...that's no good. I want him 100% for the game...but he needs as many reps in practice as possible.

                        Landry is more than cool.

                          Hopefully we don't get caught with 2 trap games in a row. Crocker has been real bad lately, but hopefully playing against his old team motivates him, and brings his game up.

                            We need an upgrade at Safety. Last year we had Safeties that couldn't tackle, now we have Safeties that cannot cover. For once I wish we had an elite Safety that can do both.

                            Defensive End is another; Kerney may or may not be resigned, and Abraham clearly isn't reliable.

                            Offensive Line depending on if Gibbs is still in Atlanta. If not, McKay will likely add someone early.

                            Running Back; Dunn is wearing down, and Norwood doesn't seem to be more than a Tatum Bell/RBBC back.

                              Shiver, Landry is that saftey, and also, I feel Norwood can be a fulltime back. He just needs a decent backup. But I'd love to see Marshawn Lynch here
