Seen is like those has been, or never were, high school athletes that go sit on the visitor side at high school games just to “stir it up”, be able to have some kind of fake pride, and soon disappear when their team stops winning…….very sad, I wonder where they go and do after their run is through?……..change their name and get on another band wagon I guess?

Chris Owens better rehab his hammy. This is his chance … show us what he’s got. And if he ain’t got it, put him on the practice squad.

I was really hoping that Flowers won’t play, w/o him, Tamba Hali is suspended too, those are 2 of their best 3 defenders, I sure hope we get off to a good start either way, we need to come out swinging for the fence on offense and defensely, we need to shut it down this year.

Go Falcons!

Could this be why Franks is back? More upside than Owens anyways!
