Interesting perspective from Don Banks - Paulitik - 10-19-2010 12:40 AM
Quote: When the Falcons play the Eagles, it's pretty apparent that Atlanta's offense features no explosive playmakers in the mold of Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. And no matter how far Atlanta goes this season, that lack of game-breakers might just be the Falcons' downfall.
Not sure I agree, I think we have playmakers, Mularkey has just neutered them.

Roddy used to be that guy, but we turned him into a possession receiver.

If Ryan has time we'll throw the ball deep to Roddy but it's hard to throw deep when the QB has 2-3 seconds before he's going to get hit.

I'm just going to answer one part of your question above, cause I'm getting ready to go to work. But I honestly think Palmer is a good answer at the TE question you posed. So far, I've seen nothing but good things from him. And he's going to get to study under TG for what I hope will be a couple more years. TE is the least of my worries positionally speaking, @ the moment.

Palmer looks okay ..I really dont see a huge upgrade in talent over Peele..That is what boggles my mind now about the trade for Tony G ...Yea a young QB best friend is a premier TE but it wasnt like Peele was a hot mess out there in 08' if you remember the SD game that guy had a heck of a game...He is also reliable as they come and Mularkey scheme was never to get a TE involved ...Just to pas sprotect then make a play her or there once in awhile
Im hoping Tony G calls it quits after this season or we dont offer contract
1st round ...best wr or best rb
2nd round ...oline
3rd round ....TE or what we missed out first round
this needs to be a heavy influenced offensive draft ... and go out in Free agency and look for a young DE

No real name-calling there, but let's leave the bashing off the public domain, dude.

There are PLENTY of playmakers on this team.
The QB does not have enough time to let plays develop because he's on the run.
Don Bank's doesn't know sh*t! I bet he doesn't even watch the games.
The problem is the patchwork, over matched, offensive line.

We have playmakers. You might not have 2 speed guys on the edge (although Jenkins is pretty fast...I'm not going to say he's a gamebreaker by any stretch).
They run their offense completely different in Philly. While it's easy to say they have a great playcaller now, the Eagles offense has been chastised in the past for being too pass heavy, etc. Everyone who watches this team knows we want to run the ball. We've got enough talent to produce more on offense, the line and playcalling are big issues though.
That, and I just think the Eagles (for whatever reason) have our number. Only team in the league I can really say that about.

We have playmakers we just need an offensive line to give them the chance to make plays.
