The Falcons Are Going to Have a Scary-Good Offense This Season

When the Saints acquired Jeremy Shockey last offseason I didn’t like the move. Many people felt it was a great addition to their team and that it would give Drew Brees another weapon. Instead, I saw a guy who was coming off a broken leg and nowhere near worth the second and fifth-round picks they…Read More

Falcons Owner Arthur Blank Doesn’t Understand Which Team to Cheer For

I spent Monday praising the Falcons for their turnaround and Matt Ryan for his amazing display of maturity despite being a rookie quarterback. You would ordinarily figure that if anyone would be pleased by the team’s display it would be the team’s owner, Arthur Blank. While Blank might be pleased with the team’s success, he…Read More

Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons: Biggest Surprises in the NFL

Through six weeks of the NFL season, the Atlanta Falcons are far and away the biggest surprise of the NFL. They’re tied for first at 4-2 and they’re doing it with a rookie quarterback as their starter. I’d guess that 90% of all prognosticators didn’t think the Falcons would win more than four games all…Read More

Michael Vick’s Pit Bulls to Star in Reality TV Show

Anyway, pressing along, apparently these dogs are heading to Hollywood for the big time,…Read More

You Can Adopt Michael Vick’s Pitbulls

Skeetsie over at Deadspin linked to this over the weekend (his farewell tour at Deadspin), and I would like the chance to elaborate on it here. A few months ago I was worried that Michael Vick’s pitbulls were going to get the axe since they were originally raised to fight. Now word has come out…Read More

Alge Crumpler Rips on Falcons, Petrino

Really, I don’t care much about the Falcons. But they are a disaster, and as one of the train wrecks in the NFL, it’s kinda fun to see the collision happen before our eyes. This week, Alge Crumpler, who’s been a good tight end his entire career (even with Vick throwing to him!), went off…Read More

Morten Andersen Will Not Die

A few weeks ago, I lamented the loss of the single-bar helmet in the NFL when the Cardinals tragically cut punter Scott Player. Well, it appears as if my prayers have nearly been answered, and answered in the form of 47-year-old place kicker, Morten Andersen. For the second year in a row, the Atlanta Falcons…Read More
