Re: 2009 1st Round Pick: Quarterback (with Article by Scott Wright)
Falcons probably won't make the playoffs and may fade a tad down the stretch because Sam Baker is out at left tackle, his replacement Todd Weiner is playing on one leg and the defensive interior line is horrible. I look for Falcons to finish at 9-7 or 8-8 - but it has been a great ride and they are definitely "building the foundation" in Hotlanta.
You guys need a really good GM and have that GM make a great coaching hire - have a good draft and a few key free agents - and you could be closer than you think. First thing the GM must do after making the head coach hire is cut a lot of players that are thought of as "good" but are terrible in lockerroom or just don't fit the coaches new scheme. Get rid of older players who are paycheck players as well. You have to change the "culture of losing and selfishness"......and it is a culture
Falcons got rid of:
DeAngelo Hall, CB(trade-this guy was not a "team" player)
Alge Crumpler, TE (good guy, but injury prone and past his prime)
Warrick Dunn, RB (great guy, but not a good scheme fit and older)
Joey Harrington, QB (just a loser- teammates had zero confidence in him)
Rod Coleman, DT(former probowler but was fading & not the best attitude)
So, Falcons "cleaned house" - and the Rams will have to do the same.
