Our ongoing podcast series reviewing the Thomas Dimitroff years for the Falcons continues today with his efforts in the 2011 season. This season featured a team that would go 10-6 but ultimately get bounced by the New York Giants in an embarassing loss in the first round.
To examine this season, I was joined by Dave Choate himself. We talked about the moves made by the GM and why this season was actually much better than people realized.
- Letting Harvey Dahl walk and why it was actually a sensible move
- Quality extensions given to players like Matt Bryant, Brent Grimes and Stephen Nicholas
- The infamous signing of Ray Edwards and why it was also a good move at the time
- The incredible trade for Julio Jones and whether we’d make that move again
- So much more
