    Because one things for sure, as long as cam is here - Joe will never reach his potential.
    The only time you can get away with firing your OC mid season is when your defense is the best defensive unit in the history of football.

    We are not the 2000 Ravens.

    I just wish we had the Falcons receivers. Ryan might have the best tandem in the NFL with Roddy White and Julio Jones. The Ravens don't have a receiver on that level.

    And that's why the Falcons traded up that far to get Julio Jones, everyone was laughing when they did that, look at how it's paid off now.

    It sure has. The Falcons gambled but all their scouting was dead on. Julio Jones was the impact player that they promised he would be. It's halfway through the season and Jones is on pace for 80 catches, 1300 yards and double digit touchdowns as their #2 receiver. That's worth the extra draft picks. It's tough to know that though in the draft. The Falcons front office did a hell of a job in getting it right.

    Re: So what exactly has this organization/coaching staff done in order to improve this offense?

    Yup, I don't like John Harbaugh as a head coach. Having Cam as our offensive coordinator is damnation enough.

    I'm tired of the dropped ball excuse, we should have rolled the Patriots, it never should have come down to that catch. The continued support of the Moeller and the crap job he has done is additional evidence.

    Mike Smith hasn't won crap, I'll admit, but under achieving isn't his M.O., where Reid and Harbaugh are going to be perennial, comes up short.

    And GOTA, the nailed Julio Jones, that was one of the ballsiest and best moves an FO has ever made.

    Reid has touched the Lombardi. 1997 when he was with the Packers.

    This is a good point.

    The Falcons don't look so dumb now for giving up what they did to move up and take Julio Jones.

    They really did. They've done a nice job on their OL as well.

    Yeah, hind sight its pretty much exactly what they needed to help take Ryan to the next level. I still think their record is better than they are as a team. Couple close calls against teams they shouldnt have had issues with. I have a feeling come playoff time they might end up choking again against a hot team.

    Maybe one of these post-seasons he will prove you right.

    It's yet to be seen how it plays out, but I have to admire the Falcons for the ballsy moves to get Julio Jones, and then after making the playoffs last year they weren't content. Fired and replaced both coordinators. It's risky but so far it sure has paid off. Playoffs will be the real test

    I didn't know they got rid of the D coordinator. I knew they let the O coordinator go. You're right. Ballsy moves. I don't see them getting past Green Bay, San Fran or Chicago but it's all about matchups. Going to be interesting.

    Very, very true. I'll admit it was off the cuff, but 14 years later the experiment is over.

    Bet the Falcons win a playoff game.

    I think it was ballsy to replace the coordinators. Sorry, 5 years of Cam is without excuse. We have no identity or creativity... wait, end arounds....
