Also I never said I didn't have concerns about the O-Line, I've made plenty of threads and posts about it. But the lack of talent at RB hurts this offense more than the lack of pro-bowl linemen. You can have the best OL is the world but if you keep relying on a RB who is slow, can't cut, and has no vision because he's a straight line runner, your offense will suffer.
    For one i never said TE was our number 1 priority. Please find me the quote where i said that TE was the number 1 priority. I even said RB was the biggest need earlier in this thread.

    No I was focusing on the fact that Ryan had to throw that often because his RBs are basically worthless. Who on this team really grinds for tough yards on short yardage? Ryan on a sneak? Again, 15 yards in 13 carries for Turner against one of the worst run defenses in the league. How many tackles did you see him break/shake today? No one would put all the blame on the O-Line for that stat line. He limits what they can do, same with Quizz as a runner aside from the occasional big gainer.

    Looked like Roddy misjudged that long pass. Too bad, but Falcons are still in a pretty good position.

    Agreed. I said he sucks. But once again, let me ask again, what running back that was available to us, that would have made a difference? MJD? We would have probably had to give up a 1st for him and the Owner made it known that they wasnt trading him. Getting him would have took too many assets. Idk of any other running backs besides Ivory that could have possibly been had but not by us, a division rival of the Saints.

    Put it this way: Right now, there are maybe a handful of RBs leaguewide who are actually worse than Turner. Some of these posters know me from other teams forums, I'm a believer in pushing all the chips on the table if I have a legit chance to win it all. Even if it means overpaying (via trade) for a player who fills a need, like RB.

    Good game guys. See you in the dome in week 13 (I think), should be good. We got the Raiders next week so we should be up to 5-5 at .500. I think you guys have the division locked up obviously, but we could see each other in the 1st round. Either way, it was a hard fought game, bitter rivals. Good luck the rest of the way. We needed that W a lot more then you guys did anyways.

    Ok i feel that. Well i actually like taking what is available and building on your stregnth if your big need aint available. I never said you was wrong for wanting a RB. I agree with you 100% because i knew from last season that Turner was done. All i was saying if we wasnt going to trade for a RB(which we didnt) We could have traded for something else that would make our strength that much stronger. Would i rather have a RB over a TE? Hell yeah! actually i would like another impact D Lineman, a middle linebacker, and even an O lineman over a TE but if a known impact player is available at any position(just so happened to a TE) I want my team to try and get him more especially when i know that not only will it help us now, it would also help is in the future. But yeah RB would be nice. I would love to have a RB. Maybe they will see they need one and try someone in free agency because TD and Smith i guess felt that the running game was enough bfo the deadline. After this horrible day, hopefully they see different.

    Falcons missing goal-to-go back

    Atlanta passed on nine of its 13 goal-to-go chances against the Saints, including its 4th-and-2 play with 1:46 remaining in the game. The Falcons turned to the pass because Michael Turner gained -2 yards on four goal-to-go rushes against the Saints. On the season, Turner has just three touchdowns on 17 goal-to-go rushes.

    Yeah, Turner is as powerful as a Prius. We should convert some bulky defensive player to HB. IMO Sidbury for HB. 6'3" 265 and ran a 4.64. He could totally do it.

    It seems almost impossible that a guy would only convert 3 of 17 goal line runs.

    Mark Bradley nails it in his postgame write-up:
    That the Falcons’ first play from the 1 was a Matt Ryan pass for Tony Gonzalez tells us they weren’t convinced they could push the Saints backward even three feet. (Malcolm Jenkins knocked the ball down in the end zone.) That the third-and-goal call was a handoff to Turner that became yet another damp squib — of his 13 carries, seven either gained nothing or lost yardage — drove home the point:

    An 8-0 NFL team could not line up and gain a precious yard against the league’s worst rushing defense.

    By losing a yard on third-and-goal, the Falcons had no choice but to pass on fourth down, and again Ryan’s pass was flicked away.
    Couldn't depend on Turner on 4th-and-short at home vs N.O. last year, nor in that playoff loss to NYG.

    They sent Douglas in to replace Franks at punt returner, so it wouldn't surprise me if 'Nique got cut (again) this week.
