Falcoholic Fantasy Team Names

Preseason is halfway over, which means the regular season is almost here. Which also means fantasy football is back! The Falcoholic Fantasy Leagues will be nothing but Falcon lovers, but in some of...

Desmond Trufant - Too immature for the NFL?

1

A couple of draft hopefuls trashed their hotel room at the combine. This might have a negative effect on their draft status. One is a potential first round pick who chose not to make himself available to speak at his pro day when front office personnel reportedly had questions regarding the incident. Why does this matter to us? Desmond Trufant did not make himself available to speak after his pro day. Could it be him? Also, do you think this should negatively affect a player's draft stock? Personally, I do because this is one of the first opportunities for a guy to enjoy the glitz and glamour of professional life. If you can't handle it at the combine, how will you handle it during the season. Speculate below if you think it is someone else, or if you have other thoughts regarding how this incident should or should not affect a guy's draft status.

Turner is pessimistic!

Could we finally see the end of Turner dominating the rushing stat sheet? MT doesn't think so. Read on!

Grimes signs his tender

+

With the talks surrounding the Falcons going after Samuel, Brent Grimes has now signed his tender. My thoughts? Damn it. Now we have over ten million dollars going towards a corner who we haven't been able to negotiate well with so far, when there was another corner who was willing to negotiate to help our salary cap situation. Oh well...

Falcon's Preseason Schedule

I know it is the preseason, but that week four game against Mularkey and the Jags should be somewhat entertaining.

Should Falcon's fans cheer for Michael Vick?

2

Interesting segment this morning on First Take. This is clearly a touchy subject, but I'm going to dive on in. Some people will be pissed off, others might support it. Regardless, he we go. My favorite line comes from Dana when she says that you are a fan of a team, not the player. I agree with the statement wholeheartedly. I really like Peyton Manning, but I'm not cheering for the Colts to win against the Falcons. In my opinion, all the "Vick fans" can put on an Eagles jersey. He is no longer our quarterback, he is the quarterback of the enemy. As far as his dismissal from Atlanta, he committed a crime, and it required the Falcons to cut ties with him. Both parties needed a new start. Cheer for him if you want, but please don't put on a Falcons jersey ever again.

Should have picked this guy!

Last year might have been my best year ever for predicting good prospects. I wanted guys like Spoon (check), John Jerry (starter for the dolphins), David Gettis (contributed as a rookie in Carolina), and Ted Larsen. Larsen saved lives! He is a very Falconly player and I wish we would have considered him.
