We can go a little longer today. up to about 12:50 or so.
A contract extension is most likely to be completed in the late-Oct/Nov window. He's not going to get close to free agency.
Injuries are a part of the game. Baker and Jones appear fine. Jackson is a concern because it's the fourth consecutive year that he's had a soft tissue injury and he's 31, which is old for a running back.
Yes, you can't question his work ethic. He's a tireless worker and I think it shows in his ability to read defenses.
OK, back up and connected!!!!
Have to power down. Will be back on in about 10 minutes.
Greetings!!!! On the way to Canton. About to land in Charlotte..
Thanks for dropping by this week. It was a blast.
The H BO folks are professionals. Some of the best in the business. Maybe the cameras will inspire the Falcons to practice harder. Back in the 1960s, Vince Lombardi invited Steve Sabol back to practice after one day because he felt his players went a little harder with the cameras rolling.

Ryan was dynamite behind that line last year. It's miracle he survived. I think they hope to lean more heavily on the rushing attack this year. That should make him more dangerous.
Schultz says I'm pandering for page views with my Cheerleader pics. I just support the program. Mrs. Chato and her girls work hard!!!
I don't really care about uniforms. Just play ball. The old black on blacks were sweet though.
Rick, JSSN, reeves south and lil dirty, thanks for the early questions, but I can't get them off the google doc.
I don't know where it's going to come from. That's one of the great mysteries of training camp. They need Central Gwinnett's Jonathan Massaquoi to develop into pass rushing terror or for Osi Umenyiora to have a flash back.
Not even Aaron Rodgers. I like discount double-check. He's nice. Would want any of these pistol QBs though.
Yeah, they can beat the Saints. It's a MUST WIN season-opener and Steven Jackson needs to atone for the drop in last year's game. He needs to break loose for 163 yards and three touchdowns. They can't go to Cincinnati 0-1. Just can't after last year's 4-12 debackle.
Way too much heat. He's a winner. Embrace the Ice Man. He's the definition of a winner.
I do wonder why they draft so many players with injury histories (Baker, Jerry, Julio's foot, William Moore's ankle)
Ron Wolf used to say if you hit on 30 percent of the picks, you're going to be good. He's batting way over 30 percent and hit big in the QB. Nobody is drafting at a 100 percent clip. It's not an exact science. You have a winning football team. Enjoy it. Before last season, only the Patriots had a better regular season record.
No. They owner said so. Why? He's build this thing up from trash. You don't remember most of the previous 40 years before 2008?
He's got to get Julio Jones signed now and continue to restock in the trenches. That's been his/scouting department weakest area.
I think you can spot-return Hester and get more mileage out of him. I expect a big year from him. Special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong, a future NFL head coach, will come up wth a good plan for him.
Hey, don't hate the Badgers. They know how to play smashmouth in Madison!
