Well, at least the later start to offseason programs means the summer dead period is slightly shorter…

@Khaos was that you the Moron standing in front of Flowery Branch Falcons complex yesterday with the sign draped over your front & back walkin’ the curb/sidewalk on front read “FIRE Smith & Dimitroff” on the back it read. “Don’t worry Falcons Fans/Players i’m just another IDIOT”

@Khaos please don’t mis-understand me, you have every right to your own opinion. It’s just that i for one would wish that you could remember you’ve already made your post known already. I realize you are on a mission, i am thinking you have a series of many issues between your ears. Maybe you need to consider an appointment with a very good psychiatrist in your area. In fact there is one probably very close to you and you will only need one treatment and it will only take .005 milla seconds to work, the name of the psychiatrist doctor office is “Smith & Wesson” just look in the yellow pages and go to you local pawn shop they will take good care of you, be assured!

Go Falcons!

Let’s see if the we can get extensive coverage on the Falcon’s offseason similar to the overkill job done for the Braves. Is it me or does it seem like the AJC does a better job covering the Braves than the Falcons?

Despite the digs….I appreciate your support for the team. We are both passionate about our Birds and want to see them succeed. I just tend to have a different view of the direction of this team. IMHO this team doesn’t seem poised for a championship run…not by keeping guys like Baker and Decoud around. Replacing guys like Lofton (which I understood due to his price tag) and replacing him with Lofa (seriously) is beyond my comprehension. With all of the holes this team has, these are the type moves you make? Oh by the way, you don’t have a first rounder. Is it better than the 80’s and 90’s? Yes. However just because it’s better doesn’t make it right.

All we can do is, all we can. From that point on we will need a little luck and blind faith.

@Khaos do you have a Radio Shack near you, they sell a neat little device/toy called “The Final Word” just put batteries in it press the button and it gives “YOU” the final word! You need it – you should try very hard to arrange yourself a with meeting Mr. Arthur Blank, maybe he will listen to your fantasy football logics. Hello “spock” you are way too logical “V” you should consider strongly moving back to planet “Vulcan”!

So that was you in front of the Falcons complex yesterday………Hey the bottom-line is you’ll probably get some portion of your wish by 2013 if the playoff record goes 0-4, we shall see. However if the playoff record ends-up 1-3 i am sure you will be posting 3,000 more of the same BS is probably a good bet right?

Go Falcons!

Are any of the sessions open to the public?

Would have liked to see them keep Sanders & Hayden, but if not both at least one of them. So do you thin that means that we now go out & draft a Safety? Since we do have some depth at cb with Franks & Owens.

Khaos, that’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard! Fire the 2 guys who are responsible for our franchises only back to back winning seasons? Back to back to back to back now I might add. You must be a Georgia fan too, delusional!

@khaos…. Why would you get rid of the people who have given more wins than any other coach or Gm in Falcons history? You want to go back to days of one winning season every three or four years? What you the news about the falcons to be the them having a early draft pick in April?

I like them winning more than they lose.

Schedule looks good…. 12 – 4. Nolan will make a difference on defense. Go

I think Khaos is so STUPID and must not really know anything about football. As season ticket hold of 33 years have seen a lot of good bad and ugly. Why I may not agree with every thing Smith and Dimitroff or Blank do, I know they have this team going in the right direction.

Khaos, seriously!?! The Falcons are on the brink. Julio J. is gonna end up worth the investment. Another winning season and play off threat or better this year. 2013 draft, considerably better. Find another blog and hobby.

Go Falcons, Smitty and Dimitroff!

@ Khaos…
You should ask them if they don’t feel stupid for falling for the same set of Wily E. Coyote type traps every off season? If this is your hobby, good job, keep making them miserable! Psssssssssssssst, one heart beat baby (another failure), and they call Khaos repetitive?
