I can't see Anderson sticking. The guy didn't do anything with Atlanta, ZIP, and here he's going to compete with better talent. Is our DE #1 pick from last year going to get any shot?

Hughes is not a DT... Anderson has the ability and a real chance to be not only a starter but a difference maker in how far we go this year

I think this was said in the other Anderson post, but Anderson will fit our d-line perfectly. He can give Mathis or Freeney a breather on 1st and 10s because he is a RUN STUFFER. Once the run is stuffed, he can transition to DT and let Mathis and Freeney back in there. He will apply preasure up the gut, collapse the pocket, and either let Frathis sack him, or force a quick ball that the QB did not want to throw. I see him as being the CJ on the d-line because he's so versatile.

I got news for ya, Anderson's not a DT either. You have high hopes for a guy that has sucked for 4 straight yrs..

This has me stoked. I already liked the combo of Moala, Mookie, Nevis, Foster and Matthews at DT, and I love the Freeney, Mathis, Key, and Hughes combo at DE.

Basically I'm saying this guy could slide up and down the line, but I think he should probably rotate in at DT, but he'll probably end up starting due to injuries later in the season... *knock on wood*

Really like this move. Another yes-name player (the opposite of a no-name player?) to stick on our D.

And how exactly does those numbers inspire confidence? He was NEVER a DT and isn't now. He was a DE out of college and a DE in the pro's. He was moved into the middle when the Falcons knew they weren't getting crap from their #1 pick investment. I doubt he lasts.

I couldn't care less about the first three season, it was last year were he didn't start hardly at all, didn't play many minutes, and still had 20 tackles and 2 sacks with a forced fumble. You gotta understand that those numbers are going to automatically go up by playing with Freeney and Mathis.. and the last two seasons he was always moving from DT and DE, but on our line he could esily play DT.

We've gone 3 DE before in our defense, you really think a 6'6" 290 guy is a down-grade in the middle?

And he wasn't moved to the middle because of low production, it was due to massive injuries for their guys at DT

Actually watch some Falcon games before you make up random statements.

I watched ALL the Falcon games, the guy wasn't shown the door just for cap reasons, it was because there were too many better options available. I hope he works out, but I doubt he makes the first cut let alone the final roster. BTW, he WAS moved to the middle in hopes he could develop into a DT worth something, because as a DE he was horrible.

He is slow off the line, doesn't play to the whistle, and has practically no technique in shedding his blocker. He actually did play quite a bit last year on the edge and in the middle. By the end of the year the middle experiment had failed and he was back on the end only. Falcons fans have gone back 20 years and couldn't find a starting DE that was worse.

Last year was the first year we were stout against the run during his tenure so while he may be "good" against the run he is not as big of a difference maker as he is being sold. He sets his edge.

Oh and yeah, he has the size, just not the talent.

Now maybe in your system with your coaches he will finally blossom as a player. We never saw any indication that he was going to improve.

ETA: Super nice and sturdy character guy though. He would be a good role model for young people if he had enough talent to be noticeable.

    • Positive - now we can finally get rid of Reich unless the plan is to tank. Then he stays…
    • I’m not sure if this is gonna be a very good QB class,I’m not seeing it with Bryce Young or CJ Stroud.If Colts get a top 10 pick maybe defense or OT instead.
    • Anyone who says Nelson is elite anymore is not looking at tape.  
    • Good:   Defense played good in the second half and decently all game for the most part. Titans barely had to go that much distance due to the turnovers in the first half. I don't have much beef with anyone on the D today. They could have done better against Henry, but it's Henry... They gave the offense a few chances to win the game.   The WRs and TE were used better this week, but the pass game isn't going to carry this team if the run game is as pathetic as it currently is. The run game has to be this teams strength.   Garbage:   Going from the best running attack in the NFL to the worst with JT still back there is a testimony on how terrible the OL and the coaching is. It's just pathetic and the OL coach deserves to get fired.   Taylor had a horrible fumble, but if people start saying he's the problem with the run game, I'm going to go mad. Please use your eyeballs and common sense and notice the OL getting destroyed on the line of scrimmage. Please. Thanks.   Ryan behind this horrible OL isn't going to look good. I honestly don't think any QB outside a Manning/Brady type could do much with this OL. Nelson played badly today, as did pretty much the whole OL as a whole.   The AFC South opponents know how to handle the Colts handedly and Frank makes no adjustments. That's a death sentence in the NFL.   It's just an undisciplined and terribly managed team atm. Despite what others say, I still think they get their crap together later on in the season. But that's the thing... It won't matter at that point. We did the exact same thing last year and the Colts did excellent in the second half of the season. But, the damage was already done since we were playing catch up.   And Leonard is probably out for longer now. He shouldn't have been playing to begin with, regardless of what some *ic fans on social media that like to imagine they would be tough enough to play in a NFL game after a surgery think. Stupid decision.     
    • the colts can go get sean payton tomorrow and they would still not win more than 6 games .  the team stinks no talent
