    The Falcons pulled their starters 2 series into the games and rested 6 or their best players.

    It is what it is, Rosen looked good.

    Hey, if you're in on the optimistic vector, go all in!

    I sure hope (2 flippers crossed) you're right!

    Adding Nkemdiche former 1st round pick to the lineup is also a huge addition for the pass rush if he can stay out of trouble and healthy!!!

    If Baker has to spy on Lamar that weakens us in other areas. The same if it's Minkah, but it may have to happen that way.

    How tremendous was that hustle to save a touchdown?

    I was about to mention Robert Quinn also. Every year these guys play well in the pre-season only to come up empty in the regular season. We just have to accept the fact that they will not have a great pass rush this year.

    I like the depth of this pass rush, even if the starters are weak on paper.

    Ledbetter, Hendricks, Orchard, and Carradine all got pressure on the QB, even if it wasn't against starters.

    Add Nkemdiche to that group and there's real potential, not to mention Harris and Van Ginkel as well.

    The DT's should be a strength of this team, even if yet again the starters aren't sexy on paper, the group is deep and talented.

    No one knows how this team will perform this year with all the changes, it's probably one of the hardest to project so most just assume we'll suck.

    I'm not buying that s*** though, this team has adequate NFL talent at every positional group except the Oline imo (I think the Dline will surprise), it just comes down to coaching and execution.

    This team can go 8-8 and I'm not scared of the Ravens at all, Lamar can't throw the ball (at an adequate NFL level) and Sizzle is finally f****** gone.

    We beat Baltimore, it sends a message to the league and changes EVERYTHING for this franchise going forward...

    More likely 15-1 based on positivity counting
