Should the Falcons take a QB with the #4 pick?
Matt had a shite game. It happens. I do not believe he is the problem on this team.

With that said, should the Falcons take a QB at pick 8ish? I am in the yes category. Draft the future with a top 10 pick. Let them learn behind Matt for a year, and then move on.

How bout you other GMs on the board?
What say you?

Edit: to reflect better draft position than anticipated

re: Should the Falcons take a QB with the #4 pick?
Agreed on your first point. The problem is more Koetter and shitty play design and the deep dropbacks. That and asking him to do too much. At his age he needs to be asked to do less, the Saints did it w/Brees and it worked up till this year when age finally got him.

Zach Wilson out of BYU. That's my guy. Sit behind Matt for a year or two then its time.

No.

It was a shite game, but it’s literally the only time I can point to the offense and say, “yup. Matt’s fault.”

Dirk Koetter is an absolute atom bomb. There’s visible frustration with the play calling in the players.

I’d be OK with a QB in round 2 if we seem to be high on Mac Jones or someone in the range, but, I think with the contracts and the cap woes we have, we’re better off riding out Matt and Julio for the next 2 years for better for worse.

It's not an easy call. I wonder who we hire to make it as well.

If surtain Jr was still there at 8. That would interest me.

I do like Zach Wilson. A lot. Not sold on Mac or Trask for that matter.

And Mike Bell is gonna be screaming at the top of his fat arse tomorrow to trade Matt. He absolutely hates the guy and the agenda has been obvious for years.

Hopefully its an offensive guy, preferably w/a WCO background.

And rumors are Blank wants John Dorsey, the former GM of the Browns and Chiefs.

But I don't trust Blank to get this right. He has no idea what he's doing and needs to sell the team.

He is the reason you'd go in round 1. I agree completely. He will likely be there at pick 6-8 too.

He's going 1.

Can't pay the price they'll ask for that spot.

He will, but I almost wonder if he is gonna pull an Elway/Eli and refuse to play for the Jets.

They are garbage. But I think he ends up a Jet.

I think so too, but I wouldn't blame him if he did do it.

There's still more 1st rd qb busts than winners so be prepared to get the next Jake Locker, Paxton Lynch, Carson Wentz, Trabisky, EJ Emanual, RG III, Deshon Kizer, Jameis WInston and so forth

Qb is definitely the hardest position to scout.

Downvote away, and I deserve it, but I'm taking Devonta at 8.

That’s... absurd.

We need defense. Honestly.

Above all, just need a coach.

I think we can all agree that if we had Sean Payton, Kyle Shanahan, or Sean McVay leading the team this is an entirely different season.

It’s not worth blowing up, especially with the cap hell that comes with it.

There is no reason not to ride out Julio and Matt the next 2 years when we have to take the contract punishment anyways.
