keendaddy, well said.

If the Atlanta media would hold this team's feet to the fire instead of doing fluff interviews/articles filled with softball questions, maybe they would have sense of urgenc in bringing a championship here. Blank has the money and will to do so, but the stooges he's hired to make it happened have maxed out.  TD is not the talent evaluator everyone thought he was.  Matt Ryan fell into his lap, and Julio Jones was a no brainer.  He hasn't brought in a viable starter on th offensive line since he's been here.  Blalock, Dahl, McClure, and Clabo were here when he got here.  To top it off, he let three of them go and replaced them with inferior talent that he hand selected. Same goes for the defensve line. By far, our two best lineman were already here when he arrived (Babs and Abe). Only Peters and Kroy contribute as starters of the guys he chose.

You look taller in your picture!

I see there was little blame on TD for the Epic Collapse we all witnessed. The total fail of our Offensive and Defensive Lines spelled Doom before the year began. 2013 Preseason was painful and little changed through the year. This was the "Crux of the Buscuit"! It was apparent then, but Smitty insisted we were ok! Did Blank tell him to "lie" to the fans, or did he just take it upon himself? Sometimes you Sports Writers seem afraid of grabbing the bull by the horns and stating the obvious. You think they won't allow you access to their inner sanctum? How'd that work out for you? Hope to see some more pointed questions from you this year towards last year's denial by TD&CMS that we were in trouble. A blind man could see it last year, but they couldn't? I find that hard to swallow...
