Snelling has been saving himself for the best season of his career. I hope is 100% and gets to show us a little of his stuff in game 1. GO JASON! GO FALCONS!

Snelling is like my favorite falcon. he is so consistent, and a great team player, always comes with his A game, rarely fumbles, hits the whole quick, great hands, can separate, and is clutch in big games.
