I don’t like this idea (at least not for this year). We practice against them, we play a pre-season game against them, and then we play a regular season game against them. I know we should look at it both ways, but how much can you hide during practice and the preseason game that they won’t be able to pick up during the regular season.

It sounds like the makings of very chippy encounters.

Steve, what the hell does obama have to do with this, if he was involved it would go something like this; well we have a strike, on second thaught we do not have a strike, let me be clear we have a strike and it is bush’s fault.

Falco,

Are you suggesting that a community organizer isn’t qualified to run the the greatest industrialized nation in history and hasn’t the business experience to keep us from our continued economic downward spiral?

The nerve of you!

Wow, is that an actual picture of Robert James playing? I thought he was just a myth.

Only a true rabble rouser would try to turn this blog into a political forum. They are ALL idiots in Washington D.C. so please take those discussions to the many blog sites on here for politics. Here it is Falcons football 24/7. Glad to be talking football instead of C.B.A.’s and I can’t wait to get up to the Branch for a practice or two. Thanks for the schedule D.O.L. I have been looking for it’s release.

The Falcon’s do training camp right. I believe the public sessions this Friday, Saturday and Sunday are kid days where they’ll have extra kid oriented stuff. If you’ve never been there plan for the heat because there’s no shade.
