DARRYL BIG SCREEN DAVIS -- Can you please tell me...Why don't we use Antone Smith more as our running back. Seems like for the past few years, he always play good. He get's in and scores, drives the ball, big runs. Why don't we utilize him more??!?
D. LED -- See above. They’ll have a package for him again this week. He needs more than a “package.”
INJURY REPORT: Cornerback Desmond Trufant (thigh) fully participated in practice and is probable for the game. Linebacker Akeem Dent (ankle), tight end Tony Gonzalez (toe), defensive end Malliciah Goodman (calf), safety Zeke Motta (hand) and linebacker Sean Weatherspoon (shoulder/knee) were all limited practice and were listed as questionable for Sunday's game.
Falcons are off the field.
BILL HALLISEY -- The Falcons should call their OL and DL the "AL". Why?! Because they are both "SOFT IN THE MIDDLE".
LEDBETTER – I don’t get that joke.
BRANDON -- Can our O-line compete with their D-line?
LEDBETTER – It’s going to be a battle. The offensive line will have to step up their level of play quite a bit.
C. DUKE -- Can't we just call this game off due to the ineptitude of both teams?
LEDBETTER – The Bills are still in the playoff hut.
KENNETH HAYES -- "When Andy Reid took over in KC they added over 20 new players with an overhaul of the roster. Do you think the Falcons are going to do something this drastic at the end of the season? "
LEDBETTER – They overhauled the roster this season with 36 percent of the opening day roster rom 2012 to 2013. Only overhaul areas will be along both lines.
Yes, there will be some cap casualties.
He signed a very modest five-year, $17 million contract in 2012. Yeah, at that price, you keep him and coach him up!
NEW ENGLAND COACH BILL BELICHICK ON HALFTIME ADJUSTMENTS: “I think that there’s a lot that happens before halftime. As I said, I think the fourth quarter, a lot of that is situational depending on whether you’re ahead or behind. The game at that point can be dictated by just the situation that you’re in, therefore you have the first three quarters. If you wait to halftime, a lot of football has gone by the boards before you make any adjustments, but I think in the NFL you see teams making adjustments after each series. …One team does something, the other team adjusts to it. That teams counters their adjustment and it goes back and forth. It goes on all game. I don’t think the halftime adjustment thing is that big of a deal because it goes on continuously from the first series of the game until really the game becomes a situational game based on a score and the time remaining.”
Yes, according to the Great Bill Belichick. --->>>http://www.ajc.com/weblogs/atlanta-falcons/2013/sep/25/belichick-says-halftime-adjustments-are-overrated/
Grimes just signed a 1-year deal with Miami, I believe.
Bartu, Worrilow and Spoon.
Tony T -- Speed is important! I think more of a POWER upgrade is needed.
Let's give him another year in the weight room before we go there.
Chous -- No! There is no heir apparent to the greatest TE ever. You find the best one you can and keep it moving.
Nobody said "NO ONE" will lose their jobs. There will be changes, just not at the top.
Yes, that is true. That happens when the blocking is not present and your two main weapons are injured.
