Falcons' disturbing attitude toward Ryan playing Sunday?

4

I hope I'm overreacting, but when I saw Smitty's quote, "Our mind-set is to try to get him back as soon as we can", I didn't like it one bit. Judge for yourselves.

If you missed it, here's video of the Panthers' Dante Wesley putting a particularly cheap shot on the Bucs' Clifton Smith. Wesley was suspended for a game, Smith is out at least a week with a concussion.

Harvey Dahl, the NFL's Meanest Player?

Found this enjoyable article from May, all about the ferocious Harvey Dahl. Great read if you haven't caught it already.

Speaking of head injuries...

The problem of head trauma of all types, and its cumulative effects on players, is increasingly at issue in the NFL.  It's now been documented that sudden deceleration of the head, repeated over...

Randy Johnson, first Falcons QB, dead at age 65

Too bad, hope it was painless. He wasn't our greatest QB, but there's a special place in many hearts for our first QB.

Peter King LOVES Matt Ryan & the Falcons

King feels Ryan has the brightest career prospects of any young QB. Lots of positive Falcons karma flowing throughout this lengthy article.

Proliferation of TV blackouts expected this year

4

Hopefully this won't include Falcons fans, but it looks like a lot of people may need (gasp) radios to enjoy all their teams' home games this year. Includes an interesting chart showing the growth in sellouts since the 1970s, and thoughts on how this may affect the new CBA.

Encouraging Matt Ryan article at PFT

Very favorable take on Ryan's outlook by the not-always-charitable Mike Florio. Worth a read.

Falcons pursuing Vick trade

3

At last, the Falcons are finally starting the process of getting some value for Dog-Boy and closing the book on a sad chapter in Falcons history. Let's get it over with, the sooner the better. Personally, I think he's a soulless scumbag of a human being, but that's just my opinion. I'm sure we all share the hope that he experiences all the success he deserves with his new team. Cheers!

Great Mike Smith article

Fine ESPN article about Our Fearless Leader by Elizabeth Merrill. Enjoy!
