Yeah. I am pretty much done for the season. Here are the things I want out of this team

1. Good individual performances by Roddy White, Jeriouos Norwood, Michael Boley, and DeAngelo Hall. Maybe John Abraham and Jamaal Anderson. I could care less how other players do.

2. Darren McFadden

Is it bad for me to kind of want to lose out the rest of our games?

I want to be competitive, games like today are exactly what I want, except for the 50yrd TD run at the end. Losses but games where the spirit can get built up.

Like I've been saying, Jamaal Anderson lacks the innate ability to get to the QB. He needs to get down to 270. It's pathetic not having a sack in 12 games. And don't say he gets pressures, because he doesn't do that much either.

I love White's development. Now if he can lower his drop percentage a bit more, and get a QB that can get it to him deep...

Damn.

And check this out!

Warrick Dunn, Starting RB. 10 carries, 17 yards

Jerious Norwood, Backup RB. 8 carries 94 yards

Exactly. He was looking much more like a DT than a DE on Thanksgiving.

He played DT in the preseason a little bit and did well there too. I think he's just too soft when I see him, he needs to hit the weights really hard and firm up that fat and he'll be fine. I don't think he needs to drop the weight he just needs to firm up.

Like I said about Calais Campbell (and even Mario Williams?), once you get to a certain point/weight you lose that pass rusher twitch.

Just to bring this back to Redman.

He looked good on Sunday. That said, I think there was a clear drop-off in the performance of the Rams defence. They went into prevent mode, and as usual it was ineffective.

I'm interested to see what he can do against the Saints. They are pretty bad against the pass generally, so he'll have a decent opportunity to get things going.

The most important thing for him to do is to keep getting rid of the ball early. If he does that, and gets the ball to our three playmakers - White, Crumpler and Norwood - then we have a chance.

A solid showing over the next four games could make the decision at the top of the draft a lot easier. But both Harrington and Leftwich have had promising moments, and then gone on to fail miserably. Let's hope that Redman makes a better fist of it.

Redman wasn't bad last night. He showed that he could get the ball out early, had the arm strength to make the deep completions to White and Robinson, and was relatively mistake free. The pick was a slightly high throw, but Jenkins should have made the catch.

I think that Redman has already made out a better case than Harrington or Leftwich for being the interim QB next year. Also, he has the benefit of being cheaper than either of them.

The most important thing is his quick release. Our O-line, even with improvements, is still likely to be below average next year. Leftwich has already shown that he's a turnover machine when the D gets pressure.

I think everyone would agree that Redman looked better then Harrington/ Leftwich. One of the QB's needed to step up and at worst be a backup next year.

Nice performances the past couple weeks, my biggest concern would be the NFL mind. Looking at third and fourth down, what is the point to throw it 4 yards when the first down marker is 10 yards away?

It's not ideal, but one might argue that it is better to get it in the hands of your playmakers and give them a chance to break a tackle, than to throw it up for grabs or to hold onto the ball and take the sack, moving even further back.

this season has made me a very cynical fan. harrington had a string of two good games. leftwich looked great before getting hurt.

especially with the coaching situation now disrupting the falcons EVEN more, i wouldnt put so much confidence in redman.

Great. The main thing that made Redman useful was his relationship with Petrino.
