I am not a big fan of the Peria Jerry pick. He's older than most prospects, has serious durablility questions, and was just not my favorite prospect on the board.

I also don't get why Dimitroff felt the 2 CB's were worth those picks when everyone else felt they were major reaches.

and I wanted the Falcons to pick an OT earlier.
1 of the 2 CB's didn't even make the roster and Jerry may be lost for the year. Love this Falcon's team, but am still not thrilled with the 09 Draft.

Yea, you're definitely jumping to conclusions.

Jerry has looked solid in regular season play, Moore is giving us much needed depth and competition at S, Owens will eventually contribute at CB, Sidbury was a steal who showed out in preseason, etc etc..

Not every draft is going to be like the one of 2008.

And we won't know for sure about this draft for about three seasons.

That really sucks if Jerry is done. TJ looks like a solid rotational player, but as a full time guy? No thanks.

You call that talent? He runs left and right along the line of scrimmage the whole time he's out there, looking like a damn idiot. He's too focused at trying to beat the OT, that he doesn't even know where the ball is. What's this, him being good against the run? On stewards big run today, he looked pathetic. He had a TE on him, which jamaal is 3 inches taller and 30 pounds heavier. Jamaal actually managed to push him off, but steward runs right by him to the outside. Jamaal was like an inch away from him, but he does some ******** arm swing and and almost falls down completely missing the RB. That was his play!!
There is no hope for this guy, he doesn't have the technique, he doesn't have the instincts. Some things you just can't teach. He's athletic, but doesn't know how to use it. He's not a good football player, period.

An when he does get this "constant pressure", it's called getting run around the QB. It's not pressure at all. Or the tackles let him get up field to allow a running lane. But he's getting penetration! Constant pressure! Just because he's not getting stonewalled at the line doesn't mean he's doing a good job.

So, we now have one capable defensive tackle.

This should be interesting.

I wonder if the Falcons will consider trading for a DT. I wouldn't have a problem with it. They look so good this year that it might be worth giving up something to shore up this year's team.

I don't know if teams are going to be bailing out this early and trading a good DT. Basically, this is big problem. Hopefully Johnson and Walker can step up, but I doubt it. And Jerry is going to be 26 in what his practically his rookie year now.

Dunagan's weekly thoughts...

-Anderson still blows...bad
- Jerry is hurt, ****
- Matt Ryan is a baller and will lead this team to "great success"
-The pass rush this week was embarrassing
- Snelling stepped up when we needed him
- Chris Houston somehow made a big play after an entire afternoon of sucking
- Penalties need to stop, especially the personal fouls
- Very impressed w/ the pass protection
-Love the # of players on O getting the ball
- Booker was a 3rd down machine (2 drive savers)
-The Throwbacks were amazing, and i wish we wore them every week
-Props to Smitty for goin for the 4th downs (pretty easy decisions)
-Mike Peterson and Brian williams are great additions, constantly making plays
-Tony Gonzo, I flat out love you
-Steve Smith, although I respect you as a player, you are a ***** and the biggest baby Ive seen
-although Turner had 105 yards, it took him 28 carries to do so, the run blocking needs to pick up
-lastly, we are 2-0

Our only bright spot is New Orleans is constructed just like we are: offense, bad defense that gets timely turnovers.

I'm a little worried about this one, mainly because it's the pats and we're on the road. I think only way we can win this one is if our pass rush steps up, that's how the jets did it.

You'll be fine.

Seriously.

The only thing the pats are actually good at is stopping the pass. Kinda.

Turner. 200 yards. 2 TDs. 17-10 birds.

Turner and the run blocking OL haven't been themselves lately. Turner isn't getting as many holes and isn't hitting them as quickly as he used to. I am still waiting for a game where he explodes, as he should. Maybe it will be this game (if we get a run game going with the pass, mark it down as a W).

Here are my thoughts on the game:

I have been looking forward to this game for the longest time, as it is a battle between 2 great QBs facing sub par defenses. This game is pretty much for measuring stick purposes only for the Falcons; if the Falcons win in New England, it is a huge statement as to how mature of a team we are and can be a legit Superbowl contender. If we lose, its not not a too big of a deal, as it is a road loss against an AFC team, so it won't affect playoffs too much. Here are the keys to the game in my opinion.

[1.] John Abraham vs. Randy Moss
The Falcons obviously don't have anyone capable of covering a WR of Moss' caliber and will have to rely on the pass rush to get to Brady before he can air it out to #81. If given enough time, Brady will find Moss (and Welker) very easily and it is up to John Abraham and his fellow pass rushers to get in Brady's face; blitzing isn't too great of an option against Brady. Abraham will face off against Light in a good match up that could be key in determing the outcome of the game. Kroy Biermann (08 5th round pick) and Lawrence Sidbury will need to be fresh in order to apply constant pressure. The loss of Peria Jerry in the passing game will hurt, but hopefully Babineaux can step up. I hope for an 'off game' for Moss to help us out a little, because we need it against him.

[2.] ATL's running game vs. NE's running game
This game has all the makings of a shootout with 2 great passing games, 2 weak defenses, and 2 sub-par running games as of now (fantasy owners of Ryan, Brady, Moss, Gonzalez, and White are salivating), but the shootout could be over before it begins if one team is able to establish a run game. If the run game is clicking (the pass game is probably automatic), one team will be able to control the clock and keep the other offense off the field. Michael Turner has been bottled up against MIA and CAR and I only hope he is looking for his huge game. He seems to be a bit slower hitting the hole this season and hopefully he can change that soon. Either way though, he should receive considerable attention from the defense to open up the passing game. I don't know too much about NE's run game, as it has been featured 43 times to 100 passing attempts and looks like a run game that the Falcons might be able to shut down (something that is necessary to limit Brady).

[3.] Brady vs. Ryan
This is what it all comes down to. Both these QBs will be asked to score on a majority percentage of their possessions in order to keep up with each other and it will be a matter of decision making, pocket presence, and accuracy to find the open receivers. With so much pass catching talent on both teams, the QB's don't have any excuses about keeping up with each other. If the game goes the way it 'should' (both run games and defenses don't show up. shootout), whoever performs better (or has the last possesssion) will win the game.

It is really hard to pick the Falcons to win in this one for me. A team as good as the Patriots doesn't lose at home to get a losing record and 2 losses in a row. I think the Patriots win a close game with the Falcons showing a ton of promise and maturity. If the Falcons get blown out, I will be very disappointed in the team's preparation, but I don't think it will happen.

If the Falcons win, then I am going into full fledged Ryan for MVP and Falcons for SB mode.

all in all, this should be a very good game.
