And he mentioned he was looking at their draft board during the conversation, haha. It was also nice to hear that he'd be willing to move up. We've heard stuff about this (he stated he wanted to get back into the 2nd last year).


As I've calmed down, he seems to be thinking what I'm thinking at that is that we'd be able to expand what we do with more talent. I just question who he's going to be looking at. The marquee guy who'd probably fit us the best is Vincent Jackson, and who knows if he'd pass the "Falcon Filter". I must say that I'm now quite excited to see what happens. FA seems so far away though.


Oh, and get me in contact with TD. He needs to hear my thoughts.

It's a normal interview, but I love listening to TD no matter what it's about.

He's pretty much getting excited for the draft. Then he talks a good deal about the packers game.

What got me excited was the fact that he said we should have applied more pressure on the QB and we need to shore up the pass rush. He said that this defense will get very aggressive and opportunistic.

"Our pass defense was ranked 22nd this year, There is no question, NO QUESTION AT ALL that we Need and WILL continue to focus on our pass defense."

That pretty much spells DE in round one for me.

TD Talking about the offense:

"In this league you have to have explosive plays, you have to have YAC, you have to create."

He keeps talking that the defense needs to get more aggressive and offense needs to be more explosive. Pretty much what we asked for.

Yea we had terrible luck drafting DL. Corey Peters has been the only exception. Kroy Biermann should not be a starter.

We've heard the aggressive stuff before. We need to see it now. Thomas needs to have an incredible off season or we'll continue to be failures.

Really doesn't bother me. Playoffs are just a lot different then the season. They also had the best play of this playoff year and years to come.

Potential QBs coach candidate No. 5: Mike Shula. Shula, the QBs coach in Jacksonville, coached on the same staff with Mike Smith in 2007, when Smith was the Jags’ defensive coordinator.

Potential QBs coach candidate No. 4: Ken Zampese. Zampese may not have direct ties to Atlanta, but he coaches under Falcons coach Mike Smith’s mentor Marvin Lewis at Cincinnati. Zampese, who has tutored QB Carson Palmer, has been the Bengals QBs coach since 2003.

Potential QBs coach candidate No. 3: Jeremy Bates. While there are no Atlanta ties, Bates, the fired former Seattle offensive coordinator, has coached QBs for the Broncos and the Jets. He was also USC’s QBs coach in 2009 under Pete Carroll.

Potential QBs coach candidate No. 2: Tom Clements. It would seem strange for Clements, Green Bay’s QBs coach, to make a lateral move. But Clements was the offensive coordinator under Falcons OC Mike Mularkey in Buffalo, when Mularkey was the head coach in 2004-2005.

Potential QBs coach candidate No. 1: Jeff Jagodzinski. Jagodzinski was QB Matt Ryan’s had coach at Boston College in Ryan’s last season and was an OL coach with Atlanta in 2004-2005. Jagodzinski spent this past season as the UFL’s Omaha Nighthawks’ head coach.

Jag has a horrible personality as far as meshing with fellow coaches.

McCarthy denied a request from the Bears last offseason (link). Granted that was a Division opponent, but I'd be surprised if they allowed him to interview for anything other than an OC position.

Edit: actually 2 offseasons ago

I doubt it as well. Just what CBS Sportsline posted. Personally, I'd like Bates. I think he got a raw deal in Seattle.

The Bears wanted to interview him to be their offensive coordinator.

I don't think you even can interview someone who's under contract unless it's for a promotion.

My understanding is that he technically could, IF the Packers approved the request. I think that rule applies even for promotions. I don't think you would make many friends in the coaching world by refusing to allow your assistants to interview for promotions though. The fact that it was the Bears definitely influenced the decision to deny in this case.

Have we discussed yet that Tony Gonzalez is returning? I'm conflicted on it. A part of me absolutely loves it. He's a great 3rd down target and makes a nice 3rd option for Matt to throw to. My concern is that we are going to continue to try and get him too many balls, rely on him as our 2nd option, and just put too much faith into someone who's really not that special at this point.

All in all, for as much as he's declined, he's still a big red zone and 3rd down threat which is all good by me if we aren't relying on him all that much.

Tony G is a great guy, we can only benefit from having him in the locker room. We should definitely get another TE though. We really have to use Michael Palmer more next season, he is pretty good.

Tony G is at worst, a solid starting NFL tight end. I'm kind of happy, because now we don't have to waste a pick on a tight end this season. We can focus on drafting a pass rusher or explosive offensive player now.

I just hope we actually add a weapon now. And Mularkey doesn't keep counting on Gonzo.

Looking at it, I think we are going to be adding at least one big piece via FA. We aren't going to lock up Dahl and Blalock both unless they come cheap. We'll resign Clabo, then one of those two guards. After that, we've got a ton of room and if we are looking for "explosive players" especially at DE and WR (what the two interviews indicated) then there is some serious talent available.

WR:
Vincent Jackson
Sidney Rice
Santonio Holmes
Braylon Edwards
Malcolm Floyd
Steve Smith (NYG)
James Jones
Steve Breaston

DE:
Charles Johnson
Mattias Kiwianuka
Ray Edwards
Richard Seymour (is a Pro Bowler in the Jamaal Anderson role with OAK)
Lamarr Woodley
Tamba Hali


Obviously some, if not the majority will be resigned. However, we are definitely going to have opportunities to add impact players.
