who’s blogged for the last three years for the Falcons, is leaving

I hope he doesn’t mind me sharing this e-mail with you all.

“After three unforgettable seasons with the Falcons, I’ve decided to pursue a new opportunity at Emory University. I’m going to miss interacting daily with the friends and colleagues I’ve made in Atlanta and around the NFL and related businesses. I hope this isn’t the end of our working or personal relationship but a new beginning.

“Thanks to each of you for the help and support you’ve given me over the years.”

Good luck J. Mike!!!!

Thanks for the kind words, D. Led. Going to miss working with you but will always be a loyal reader. To the fans, thanks for your support over the years (and these kind remarks in the blog). I hope you’ve enjoyed my blog and the other work I was involved in on It’s been a blessing for me and my family. Our site is still in fantastic hands and it will continue to push the envelope in order to be the best. And the team, well, we all know they’re rising up to new challenges and ready to take flight to something historic. I look forward to joining the fans celebrating a Super Bowl win! GO FALCONS!

Will miss the work Mike. And the fact that you actually answer blog questions. Hope your replacement is at least as good as you, my man!

Dang J. Mike. I hope it’s a vertical move. I reside in California and don’t get local coverage, so you held me down the last 2 years during Falcons news droughts.

If you apply yourself in the same manner, you will most certainly be successful in your new venture.

My blessings to you and yours.

Thanks man………..
