Raheem Morris says Dante Fowler has been bad; Fowler says he has been injured


The #Falcons have been on the hunt for a pass rusher since foolishly cutting #John #Abraham way back after the 2012 season. They tried and failed with #Osi #Umenyiora, #Ray #Edwards, #Vic #Beasley, #Takkarist #McKinley, and now #Dante #Fowler. #Thomas #Dimitroff restructured some contracts, kicking the cap problems off for another year, and let #Austin #Hooper leave in free agency without so much as offering him a contract, in order to land #Fowler on a three-year, $45 million deal.

#It was a risky move for #Fowler, who only had one good season when playing next to #Aaron #Donald. #After 15 games, #Fowler has done his best #Vic #Beasley impression, disappearing for long stretches entirely while tallying only 2.0 sacks. #He has been easily outperformed by undrafted lineman #Jacob #Tuioti-Mariner. #Fowler is likely a candidate to get cut in the offseason.

#Fowler is a reminder that despite trying for well over a decade, #Dimitroff was absolutely unable to bring in a single competent edge rusher. #It has been bad. #Dan #Quinn would never say it, however, #Morris was upfront with his criticism of #Fowler on #Wednesday. #Asked about #Fowler’s performance this season, #Morris said, “It just wasn’t good enough.”

#How refreshing! #Between #Mike #Smith and #Quinn, #Falcons fans have not seen their head coach say much of anything negative about a player, even one painfully underperforming.

#Fowler, apparently checking #Twitter, posted the following since-deleted #Tweet.

#Fowler, apparently unaware that screenshotting exist, has only been briefly been on the injury report this season. #He left the #Dallas game with an injury, sent 11 days on the COVID list, and was dealing with a hamstring injury ahead of the #Las #Vegas game. #We are not clear what his injury may be, but it has not been severe enough for him to miss time.

#It is unclear if the #Falcons will do anything about yet another underperforming defensive end taking his complaints to #Twitter. #McKinley complained about not being traded after the trade deadline, was fined, then cut, failed multiple physicals, then eventually ended up on injured reserve with thee #Raiders having played exactly zero snaps.
