Gimmee some of what you smokin’, you seem to be enjoying the hallucinations. The first NFCS Division Champion to repeat? Well that doesn’t abode well for your unbeatable filly lilly fleur de lis. By the way, Falcons have had more playoff berths than any other team in the NFC South. What they do with that is about to change.

Sorry Mike P. You have had a great career. I should never compare you to Sammy Baked.

Interesting:
“If Turner can rush for 638 yards before he catches four more passes he will pass George Rogers as the most one-dimensional prominent running back NFL history.”

For something fun to do, it might pay to go see some practice sessions of the Birds and get a feel of what they are all about……………..I plan to go.

I’m so excited that football is about to start. Go Tucker Tigers, Georgia Dawgs, and Rise Up Atlanta Falcons! (Special shout out to the Georgia State Panthers, they got the team after I left)

Training camp is kind of like appetizers in that it just gets you hungry for the real thing. I am so ready for football season that it doesn’t take all that much to whet my appetite.

Can we please start the 2012 season in agreement that SeenthisB4 is a mental deficient and just IGNORE what he says and not get into arguments with him? The poor guy’s team is the scourge of the NFL and has been severely crippled with sanctions so if he is delusional then let the poor boy wallow in the grandeur of his delusion.

Esquire Turner wishes he was half as good as George Rogers.
