With Kerry Meier out, should Falcons go after Vincent Jackson?

FLOWERY BRANCH — On Twitter.com I presented the following question last night:

“With (Michael) Jenkins hurt and Kerry Meier (knee) out for the year, do the Falcons need to make a move at wide receiver? Send along your thoughts.”

Well, more than 50 people did. Here are your thoughts on the wide receiver position. A certain Mr. Jackson’s name was mentioned several times.

The Falcons need to something at WR after missing out on TO , Brandon Marshal , and Boldin , Vincent Jackson is on the block after that performance Thursday Matt Ryan obviously needs help also P. Creaton and Miles Austin who is a RFA but Dallas is not going trade him.

LOTS of potential and talent on the roster that apparently hasn’t been given a chance in the heat of battle – Harvery and Wolfe come to mind.

Bergeron showed some YAC that the Falcons have lacked since HD went down, so he deserves a stronger look as well.

Lets not import a trainwreck waiting to happen (Jackson, drugs questions) without giving the folks in hand a fair shot! If they can’t cut it, THEN look at other options.

Stop over reacting people, really, how many catches did you all expect from Meir this season anyway. I am far more concerned about Corey Peters. It does help us the fact that JA98 is one of the best 4-3 DE in the NFL at STUFFING THE RUN. No, he isn’t a good pass rushing DE, but he is as rock solid a run stuffer that you will find at his position, even better than Julius Peppers.

Meier was not a starter folks. He provided depth so going after Jackson doesn’t make since…unless we’re talking about cutting Jenkins. Then I can go along with it.

While it would be great to seen Vincent Jackson in a Falcons uniform, it’s not gonna happen. If I’m not mistaken, the Falcons would have to give up a first and a third round pick to get him (if that’s incorrect, then please let me know). Also, we know he’s looking for a big payday, and I seriously doubt the Falcons are going to give high dollar contracts to 2 receivers. Now that I think about it, Roddy White got a new deal last season and Micheal Jenkins signed a $20 million dollar extension as well, so the chances of Jackson coming here are slim to none.

Also, you can’t knock the Falcons for not going after Anquan Boldin and Terrell Owens. You see Baltimore had to give up a second and third round(or fourth round, I can’t quite remember) pick to get Boldin, and we had already traded away two picks to get Tony Gonzalez and Tye Hill. As for Owens, I personally like the guy, but given his history, he’s not the type of player that this team needed.

I’m all for giving some of the unproven guys we have now a chance to see what they can do over the next 2 preseason games. A lot has been written about Brandyn Harvey, but I haven’t seen him on the field at all during the first 2 preseason games. Let’s throw him out there and see if he lives up to what’s been said about him. Also, Ryan Wolfe and Troy Bergeron may be able to do something as well.

I honestly don’t know what other receivers are out on the street looking for work, so I can’t really comment about who else we should go after. Damn shame about Meier’s injury. I was really looking forward to seeing what he could do for us this season.

OMG, you guys have gone bonkers, if Vincent Jackson is Championship Caliber, then why hasn’t he won 1 with the highly talented San Diego Chargers, who play in perhaps the WORST DIVISION IN THE NFL. We are going to beat the stuffing out of the Steelers in 3 weeks, and I for one would like for all of you OVERREACTORS to leave the blog and start rooting for the Cleveland Browns.

Sly Ty, I’m with you on the comment about Corey Peters. So far, I’m hearing that he didn’t tear any ligaments in his knee. That’s definitely a good thing, considering that he said he heard something pop. Losing him for the season would be a bigger blow than losing Meier.

DJ Sniper said it all. Believe me, if were were going to pay the huge price VJ will command for a WR, it would NOT be for VJ. True, we are presently weak/untested at Jenk’s position (not to mention the slot position), and Finn is probably not the answer if we want to move to the next level. But VJ/ No.

Kerry’s injury may be a blessing in disguise for the team.

IR accomplishes the same thing and they don’t have to use a roster spot.

YES! I think he’s worth the risk. We have DUI’s in Babineaux and we are dealign with that. It’s not the same baggage as domestic violence issues that someone like Brandon Marshall has. Sometimes a change of scenery and being around a vet like Gonzo can help turn his life around.

mountain_jim

August 21st, 2010
12:27 pm

Well I am sad for Kerry. As Gonzo said during the game, he was really getting noticed and playing well so far. Plus with his brother’s death during draft week, this year has just been awful for him and his family.

I hope some of the other no-names in camp are good, because the Falcons really do appear light at WR. If Roddy were to go down, the situation would be severely bad for this team. They did not spend a lot of draft capital on WR or bring in any big FAs last 2 years, so Jenkins better heal and Roddy better stay well and Harry better be as good as folks are hoping, and over his injury.

Mularkey will have to start going deep when the games get real or the offense is going to continue to stall due to other teams stacking up front to stop the run and the short passes.

Superbird

Hope Meier can have a speedy recovery and contribute next season. Don’t know why most Falcon Fans are over reacting, Meier was going too be added for depth only, not like he’s been a proven receiver with 100 catches a season, maybe he would have had 15 to 20 receptions this year, a starter on special teams.

We should have taken Owens when Jenkins went down, offered him a one year contract packed with perfomance incentives and kept him on a short leech, I know all about the culture the Falcons are trying too build with choir boy Football players, but we need some roughneck hardcore football players with attitudes that will bring some trash talking and energy to this football team.

This team was weak at the receiver position even before Jenkins got hurt,Its beginning to amaze me that some are suggesting we settle with Finneran and the back ups we have, we not only need a bonafide #2 receiver, but we need to aquire a #3 as well. Jenkins injured and may be slowed by this same injury this year, Finneran is injury prone and slow, Douglas coming off serious injury not up to full speed , imagine that, we have nothing after that. Roddy White is the only top notch receiver, he goes down we have nothing.

Why does everybody think Meier was going to do so much, he’s a rookie. We should have been went after Jackson. He would be a great fit opposite Roddy.

People calm down on the Jackson “Whoa Nelly” train. As has been said before Kerry was only going to be a backup this yr with promise for the future. The Falcons are committed to Jenks for this 1 last yr. All this means is that we will probably be drafting a WR with our no. 1 or 2 in next yrs draft. I do think it’s time, though, that the Falcons (and we fans too) understand that the purge is over and we have a very strong core of players so that we can take on a V Jackson as a player to put us over the top, if that’s what Smitty and TD think we need, without fear of said player undoing the tragectory of the team. Aka. As the patriots have done with Moss and others. In this instance though I don’t think TD sees as one of those times. If it was Jenks out for the yr though…….

Chop Buster

August 21st, 2010
12:55 pm

You took words out of my mouth…Vincent Jackson. They needed an experience WR to go with Roddy anyway. Finn is a still serviceable…but not a starter; Jenkins is injured but he was never a number 2 to begin with. With White, Gonzalez, Douglas and Jackson we could have a formidable passing core this year. Stop playing around TD and bring the damn man in for a work out.

torgo

August 21st, 2010
12:59 pm

Just to clarify, no, the Falcons would not have to give up a first and third round pick as part of acquiring a former RFA. The restricted free agency period is over. The former RFAs have all signed their tenders or are holding out – with the current team holding their rights. Either way, it’s a pure trade situation and the price is entirely negotiable.

As for whether the Falcons should get another WR, it depends – is Matt Ryan actually going to start looking to throw to the WRs anytime soon? If he keeps throwing only to Gonzalez and the RBs, we might as well just line Keith Zinger out wide and let him have fun pancake blocking CBs.

The Dallas Cowboys have players to give away at the wide receiver position and need a offensive lineman (going through injuries). How about Patrick Clayton for Blaylock? Ojinnaka can probrably play a number of position. And I don’t see the Falcons resigning Blaylock anyway.

To me the Falcons get complacent at certain position like wide receiver rather than improving the team because of character issues I thought they should of signed T.O. but know we sit there and act like Michael.J is the best # 2 receiver in the league rather than get a good #2 receiver or move him down on the dept chart I think Jenkins is a #3 at best go get someone dont get Jackson he does us no good sitting the first three gms unless thats the only option dont get any washed up player.

I still say they should have picked a wr with 1st pick, because our defense will be no better than last year. Dimitroff knew wr is one our weakest spot on the roster even with Roddy ( he is more of hands guy not a deep threat ). People are going to load the box against us until we prove we can stretch the field. Yeah we are picking up nice chunks of yardage, but we cannot punch it in. Everyone was laughing when they talked about TO, but who’s laughing now. Whether Jackson or not we better get another set of hands with some speed in here, because seems like New Orleans never has trouble finding young hands. Is it just me or were we singing this same tune about our receiving corp last year about this time ???

Will the Falcons finally go after a receiver now? Lets face it, Jenkins is not the #2 guy. I know I will get grief for this, but I honestly believe Roddy White is a strong #2 receiver. Vincent Jackson is out there, pipe dream. Javon Walker is out there; two #2’s are better than a true #2 in Roddy and a #3 in Jenkins. I was very excited about Meier this year. Seems we are jinxed when it comes to slot receivers (Finneran two years ago, Douglas last year, and now Meier, whom I thought would get ample playing time this year). For this offense to compete with the pass happy teams that dominate, (Saints, Vikings, Colts, Pats, Green Bay, Cinci, Chargers, Texans, etc.) we need some more pop out there for Ryan to fully emerge as an elite. The best QB’s ever always have legit #1’s with very compitent #2’s and 3’s. We do not have this. Javon Walker would garner more attention than Jenkins. This would free up Roddy, Douglas, and TOGO (Tony Gonzalez) in the passing game. Use Jenkins in a rotation. We need to get the ball down field more, obviously. We throw way to many 5 yard passes, and I’m over it. Mularky is possibly, the most boring OC out there. I feel, I have been watching the exact same plays, for two seasons and through this preseason. Frankly, I’m sick of it and bored. So predictable. Lets face it, Roddy gets doubled amd Jenkins is way to easy to defend one on one. So, for Ryan, it’s too easy to go with the sure thing, TOGO across middle and into the flats. These are the only options 90% of the time. Snooze fest. Our defense will be sub-par again this year, don’t kid yourself. We need to score. We need to sign the best option at receiver immediately. Ryan is a stud QB but will never get there with this receiving corp. Never. Plus Jenkins and White drop too many passes, I know not statistically, but when it matters. I have watched every game since these two came on board and dare someone to challenge me. Jenkins would not be starting for any of the other top 20 teams in the league.

No way, that guy Jackson sounds like bad news and a headache we don’t need. Finn is still Finn, do you see that catch during the game against the Patriots?

Michael Jenkins is a decent #2 WR, and he is an excellent blocking WR. Name for me please some of the great #2 WR in the league at the moment. Somebody please list them for me.

The problem with getting Jackson. First-He wants no 1 money to be a no. 2 WR. Second. After Roddy and TG get 80-100 catches, will Jackson be happy with the same 50 that Jenkins gets, uh-NO Third- we are a run first-throw second offensive mentality and I don’t see Smitty changing so with Jackson coming from pass happy San Diego he would not be happy. Let’s see how the WR’s shake out this yr and draft a WR with our No 1 next yr
