Isn't Beatty the starting LT? Also Diehl's father-in-law is the HC...

1: Yes he is, Diehl is the RT, 2: No, thats Chris Snee, 3: Diehl is terrible, but hes the only back up tackle we have, if he had some not completely worthless Id be all for cutting him.

Wow - massive over reaction? I mean yea its terrible but cutting him? Where's Jared Allen Cut comments? David Diehl? Heck Stallworth killed a dude - whys he in the league?

Point being he made a mistake and will pay the price - don't see why he should lose his job as well


I think a lot of it has to do with his production as well. Sounds like a lot of Falcon fans are wanting to look towards the future anyways.


Fair enough but Diehl was apparently terrible too


Nah Madd you know we have loved Turner for awhile but he just can't get it done anymore. Against any real defense he is just a no show at this point. Alot of us have been calling for his head before last season much less this season.

Then you add in he is not the type of RB we need for the type pf offense we want to run now and he makes like 5+ million for this kind of production and off the field problems.

He has also had a big problem of showing up to camp out of shape and over weight not being ready for the beginning of the season. Has done that multiple times actually.

True he has been good for us and helped us turn it around but it is now time to move on and move forward to a RB that can help us more.

Makes me remember our FFMD trade of Turner for Felix - not sure who actually won
that but I'm leaning towards Dallas - Haha

Who was his back up? Was it a viable option to cut him?

I know a lot of people are pretty high on Jaquizz


They shouldnt be to be quote honest, at least not to replace turner in 2012.

Wait...What?

Totally bogus.

So the NFL is more focused on bounty scandals, and PEDs, and less focused on DUIs, and killing people behind the wheel?

It got something to do with first offense, which it was in Turner's case.

I believe a fine is the maximum a first time offender can get. I'm not 100% sure on that though.

Whereas Lynch is running around with 2 DUIs, a gun charge, and hit a pedestrian while intoxicated

Isn't the first offense for a positive PED test an automatic 4 game suspension?

I get people make mistakes, and the players are human like all of us, but I think their priorities in terms of suspensions are laughable.
