Why are we considered “thin” at RB? They don’t think much of Jason Snelling?

@deplane They are most likely gonna be using snelling at fullback since polite is out that leaves only two backs on the active roster besides the fullback

Falcons will destroy those panther clowns tomorrow……55-3 is my prediction and that is being kind. Scam Newton will be pouting early and often….Ha Ha…..Falcons 16-0 all the way to the superbowl. After tomorrow, Falcons will be 4-0 and Aints will be 0-4….can’t beat that…bunch of losers.

You are a clown Michael M. If you doubt the Falcons, get off the wagon now. We don’t need fair-weather fans like you. Falcons all the way to the superbowl. Undefeated season….#1 offense in the league. Julio and Mattie Ice are the bomb.
