    Re: Falcons sign Ray Edwards to 5 year deal

    Week 12 can't come soon enough... Here's to hoping we are contending for a division title/playoff spot and Robison and Load having a huge day.

    Well said.

    Ahhh the ole Right Wrong thing again.

    Are you saying that he won't be lining up with other good DLmen in Atlanta?
    he probably will be, the difference is he now has the mantle of being a large FA acquisition with the $$ to go with that. Time for the body to back up the mouth and promise..somehow I think the Falcons will get short changed on that.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Maybe from a statistical standpoint but not from his mouth :laugh:

    Re: Falcons sign Ray Edwards to 5 year deal

    Ray was a talker, but he was a solid left end. I think the Falcons got a great deal bringing him in. He's making half as much as Charles Johnson got. Ray isn't that much older (26 this season vs. 25). Johnson's year last year was very good, better than any of Ray's. But Ray has been a solid all-around player and seasons of 8 and 8.5 sacks from the left end spot are nothing to scoff at.

    You never know for sure what any player is going to do going forward. But based on past production, it looks to me like Atlanta got a good deal and a good player.

    I won't disagree with you that Edwards is a solid player. However, I won't necessarily agree with you in that they got a good deal. Compared to what the Pnathers overpaid for Johnson, yes. But let's just see how Edwards plays first. He does have a good RDE playing on the line in Abraham. I don't know who their 2 interior lineman are. They aren't the Williams wall. I guess time will tell.

    Going to be interesting to see how well Robison performs & if he can get double-digit sacks playing along side 3 pro bowlers to prove the merits of some posters arguments.

    I can see people STILL can't figure out that it's easier to get a sack attacking from a QB's blind side, than it is trying to get a sack when the QB see's you coming.

    I didn't hear Robison talking about breaking the sack record...

    I didn't hear Robison whining about money...

    Ray gets to step up and PROVE how good he really is now. He got his "big Boy" contract...let's see if he lives up to it.

    Robison gets the same challenge, but doesn't have the big mouth to add pressure to his task.

    I can see people STILL can't figure out that teams put their best pass-blocking tackle on the left side to try and counter that.
