Light up the scoreboard on offense! Have the defense keep the ball in front of them and rally to the ball. It's real simple. Catch a break or two along the way.
He also had Lawrence Taylor and some pretty good players along the way. He hasn't all of sudden forgot how to call a game.
Not true. He's out of his boot. Roby or Weems.
He'd probably be a great defensive end.
Falcons guard Justin Blalock (back) and wide receiver Harry Douglas (foot) will not play against the New York Giants on Sunday, head coach Mike Smith announced on Friday.
Blalock's streak of 102 consecutive starts will be snapped. Neither player practiced this week.
Blalock has never missed a game because of injury during his eight-year career and has made 102 consecutive starts in the regular season.
Harland Gunn is set to replace him in the lineup. The Falcons signed Gunn off the practice squad on Tuesday after center Joe Hawley (knee) and tackle Lamar Holmes (foot) were placed on season-ending injured reserve.
Douglas did not play against the Vikings. He was a full participant for two practices leading up to the game before being listed as limited on Friday.
Four Falcons players were upgraded to full in practice Friday: wide receiver Devin Hester (ankle), safety Kemal Ishmael (ankle), wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle) and linebacker Prince Shembo (knee).
They've drafted SEC players. Mike Johnson, Akeem Dent, Thomas Brown, Julio Jones, Corey Peters et al.
#Falcons coach Mike Smith just said Justin Blalock and Harry Douglas are OUT for Sunday's game against the New York #Giants.
No. That would be a major NCAA violation. They can scout him, but they have to follow NCAA rules until his eligibility has expired or he declares for the draft.
Cloudy, chance of sunshine.
He looks the same to me. Spent too much time getting knocked around in the preseason. But there is a sense of urgency that is different. Having his Wisconsin buddy Gabe Carimi here should help him.
That's have be drafting pretty high to get a shot Gurley! He's a wonderful looking prospect.
I don't know yet. Will get with my digital people and see if we can pull one off. That would be fun.
I think 9-7 gets you the trophy and a wildcard ticket.
See Billick comments. He said he's been using smoke and mirrors and is out of mirrors.
Yes, I do have a ticket and I will be blogging from London!!!
No, he said they "mis-assesed" the offensive line situation. Publicly admitted to the mistakes. So, no. He's not above criticism. It is a collaborative effort and the coaches, who help with the scouting for scheme fit, share some of the blame.
No. Trades are rare in the NFL.
No sure. We'll ask him today.
Sidbury, Maponga, Massaquoi were all good college pass rushers.
No, he seemed sincere. I listened to the whole interview a couple of times this morning.
