I thought for sure we would get a 1st rounder...I guess not.

This is sad day. Give me a moment to pick myself up again.

Must be a contract situation between D-Hall and the Giants.

apparently the giants were to agree to a first rounder but the contract dhall wanted was too steep for them and they therefore declined.

trying to be optimistic, with the 34, i really hope we can get brohm.

I hope Al Davis has a life changing experience where he becomes money conscious and says no to the deal. Then the giants trade for Hall with their first and Hall takes a little off of his money requests. Makes both teams happier.

You know as fans we feel like were getting rob by the Raiders but on the flip side if Deangelo Hall would shut his mouth and just go out and play instead of acting like a Deva then maybe we wouldnt be put in this situation to make a trade...by the way screw Meangelo Hall you would think he would consider the fans but its all about the money....Im glad that were trading him because we need charactor guys and if Meangelo would stop trying to be the real #21 (Deion Sanders) maybe things would have work out...Screw Meangelo Hall!!!

I don't understand why you guys seem to be so upset that the Giants trade didn't go through. The difference between the picks is minimal. The Giants have the last pick in the 1st Round and the Raiders have the third pick in the 2nd Round. There is a good chance that the same player the Falcons would target with the Giants pick is still around when the Raiders pick. He would come cheaper too.

Cover 2 is not a scheme. It is a play. A tampa 2 is a system of play, a style of play, an attitude. We are not running a tampa 2 from all indications. In Jacksonville Mike Smith ran a lot of cover 2, not tampa 2. He also apparently ran cover 3, and man to man as well. So I would say a prominantly zone system with man incorperated.

Coverages will be constantly mixed up as they are on any good team no doubt You can't run simply a cover 2 every play and expect QBs not to find holes in it. But we can expect to see a lot of it, as a base coverage.

I seriously can not believe we are trading DeAngelo Hall. Our best player. A twenty-four year old player. A two-time probowler (in four years). We might be in worse shape than any franchise in the NFL and we are shipping off our best player for a second round pick.

The Falcons are complete dumbasses. I agree with some of these signings, but cleaning out house like this is ludacris. The chances of grabbing a CB, or player, the caliber of DeAngelo Hall with our newly aquired second round pick are extremely thin. Odds are the player we pick at number three won't even be as good as him.

Does this mean you're going to be 'rooting' for another team now?

Sit back and realize the team isn't going to be winning right away, so investing in a big ticket player (even one as great as Hall) could really set us back as far as a team goes, especially since we're looking to kinda change DB schemes anyway apparently. I love Hall, really, he's one of my favorite to watch and I love his passion on the field, even if he gets hosed with dumb penalties.

The TEAM can be better running a different scheme, you can have 1 elite player in the other scheme with others struggling to keep up making that 1 elite player look even better, while making the overall defense worse. If you can take 3 of the 4 DBs and put them in a scheme that is better for them then you can make the team better overall. Change can be good, and if by losing Hall it means we can make players fit better in a different scheme to make the team better then so be it.

I know that there is an entertainment side of the game, but putting butts in seats is only part of it, and if you're losing there's only so much fans will put up with, if you're winning you can count on the fans to be there no doubt. Overall the TEAM will be better without Hall, but it will miss him as well.
