Never mind how it's been proven that the Falcons offense is clearly superior to the Steelers in every measurable way,

or when you laughed me out of the thread saying Rape > THE MOST VALUABLE PLAYER

Back in October I said:

I think it's the FALCONS
...and hilarity ensued.

Ryan >> Rape is borderline troll level stuff as well.

Re: NFL Off-Season 2017

To be fair though, I'm only cherry-picking these comments now that the Falcons have vindicated me.

After the Vick stuff went down in 2008 or whenever, I said Matt Ryan was "a mediocre ACC quarterback from a loser program," "sure to be a bust," and that I wanted "to hand the keys of the franchise to [UGA product] DJ Shockley," who is now calling high school football games on local Atlanta network TV.

So I don't always get it right.

But I think the STATS and the HARDWARE are going to show me right on this one.

Re: NFL Off-Season 2017

Michael Bennett just as nuts as his brother. Tough loss so yeah he's emotional but then he went into this on a reporter today.

Get out of my face now. Don’t tell me I didn’t do my job (expletive). OK, exactly. Get the (expletive) out of my face. Like I said, get out of my face. Don’t play with me. Don’t play with me. I just put my heart on the (expletive) field. Don’t (expletive) play with me. Get the (expletive) out of my face then. Try me again, see what happens. I ain’t one of these (expletive) out here. Don’t try to tell me what I didn’t do (expletive).”

and the best part
During the tirade, Bennett also asked Wixey, “what adversity you went through?”

Wixey was treated for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2009.

Re: NFL Off-Season 2017

I mean, Leveon is very clearly better than either Falcon RB and Antonio>Julio. But ya, Falcon OL and Matt Ryan were underrated for sure.

I had a quick look through QBR figures for the past 8 years the other day, looking for the closest similarity to Kirk Cousins (because I'm like that) and guess what.....?

it's Matthew Ice.

With the exception of two outlying years....this year and (I think) Matty's second year, young Matthew's QBR is exactly the same as the two years of Captain Kirk's.

Now maybe Kirk doesn't have the outlying good years in him (although I think he might), but given nobody (that I'vee heard) thinks Falcons shouldn't have paid Matthew, the Captain is getting paid for sure and Skins are right to do so

Re: NFL Off-Season 2017

Bell is ridic, he stops and waits for the hole to open or simply wait for a bigger one. Like you really shouldn't be doing that as a NFL RB, because holes tend to close fast but nope, he'll literally stop, then burst through the hole--must be nice to trust his OL. Todd Gurley on the other hand can't do this b/c there's never a hole.

Re: NFL Off-Season 2017

Figuring out a real QB stat that you could rank that isn't AIDS is gonna be very tough to figure out. Any ideas?

I tend to default to some combination of Adjusted Net Yards Per Attempt and DVOA/DYAR

Re: NFL Off-Season 2017

Calling Bell/Williams a "tandem" is pretty lol for the purposes of comparing the two backfields

Jags interviewed Chip for HC. Can't believe we were denied this perfect union.

The point: everyone was extremely wrong about PIT offense >>>>>>>>>> ATL offense. They're basically the same; ATL might be a smidge better.

Re: NFL Off-Season 2017

Random unsupported prediction: Leveon Bell is not one of the top running backs in the league 2 years from now because teams will adjust to his hopping and hole-seeking
