Hey DOL…does this seem like a trap game to you? I do think the Falcons will win though,with this coaching staff…

DLed, A little light hearted criticism…Atlanta is in GA. A vast majority understand Flowery Branch ergo is also
in GA. How about a simple “reporting from FB”. Love your work brother.

Day One Fan,

That’s why D-Led, as great a beat writer as he is, NEEDS Tara Petrolino to help him out. haha

D-Led; MORE Tara, LESS Noah Coslov. Make it happen!

Must we hear someone every single week mention this is a “trap game?”

In the NFL, any team on any given Sunday (or Monday, or Tuesday or Saturday now) can rise up and defeat the other team. All have NFL talent; all don’t have NFL coaching.

Just play your best one game at a time and at the end of the regular season hopefully your work will result in: the playoffs, division title, and even home field advantage throughout the playoffs…this would be the 2nd time in three years–not bad!

Raiders are 25th on offense and 25th on defemse but with Palmer and McFadden they should be able to put up points. We need to score early and often. I know the Dome will ne amking some noise.
