We extended Desmond Trufant, 5 years, 69M, 42M gtd
Seems good, we lock up one of the best young secondaries in the league.
It remains to be seen whether they'll pay Devonta. On one hand I don't want to tie up that much in the cap on a RB, especially when we have a serviceable committee. The cruel, business side of this would say let Freeman play out the last year of his rookie deal, let him walk, keep Tevin, and find a new Devonta Freeman in the 4th round again on a fresh rookie deal.
On the other hand, Freeman is an indispensable part of this offense, and he's definitely earned it.
There's lots I don't like. I don't like early byes (week 5), I think late byes are better.
It's really interesting that we don't play our first divisional game until week 9. That means that basically anything can happen in the first half of the regular season, and our whole divisional standing will come down to the 2nd half.
5 primetime games, so that's pretty cool.
@ Pats Sunday night week 7... I hope we blow their doors off in Foxborough like we did in the first half of the Super Bowl
@ Sea Monday night week 11... Seattle's a tough place to go into, we'll see.
4 straight divisional games to end the season, starting with vs NO on Thursday night week 13. Then @ NO two weeks later.
My manager at work told me I never will. I'm not over exaggerating either, I've considered quitting football. I've never had reliving a moment over and over again nearly make me physically ill to think about. Whether it's someone mentioning the game, a replay from the game, my own thoughts wandering into the abyss about the game. I get it's just a sport it really doesn't affect my life but we as fans invest so much time and emotion into a team. Non sports fans don't understand that bond and laugh at it but it's a real thing. And I acknowledge the very real possibility Atlanta doesn't make it back to the Super Bowl before I die. Last year's ride was hella fun but the way it ended and the thought it may never reach that level of fun again has me asking why even strap up and do it all over again? Time heals all wounds but this one is ripping at the excitement I have about football. Hope it doesn't last.
