Spoon is the heart of this new defense! He and Abraham are the ones we can least afford to lose.

@Dr.Falcon: I love your commentary on SIRIUS XM RADIO. Sir, please ask Jim Miller why he feels the Falcons could lose the next 5 games in a row. Well 4 now, he counted us for a loss against the Eagles. Thanks Dr. Falcon.

Get well Spoon….It didn’t look bad by watching Spoon riding on the cart but with an outstanding performance and some treatment he should be eager to return.

By the way checkout Asante on csnphilly.com Andy really didn’t want to speak to him but like Asante said “Nothing personal it was only Business!!!!!!”

RISEUP LET’S GO F.A.L.C.O.N.S!!!!!

“WITHERSPOON is a Hoss.” That’s bad spelling and “grammer”(oops). You need to correct this now,Mr “LITERACY NOW”. it’s important. When you get “grammer” cleaned up you can work on drinking beer and cussing during games

A little nugget on ESPN stats. Ryan has a 117 qb rating with a clean pocket and a 74 qb rating when under pressure like teams with horrible lines. Yesterday he had a clean pocket. However comes playoff time, teams like the Giants, Niners will create a messy pocket.

Just Sayin that is a perfect name for you because you just say anything and it makes me think that you are a lonely soul who just sit around and GOOGLE stats about players. Can you do us all a favor and find out what the QB rating for Ryan is on a cloudy day with the possibility of rain while playing in a dome or outside against a team that has a mascot. I am pretty sure we are all interested in that you hater. Get a life clown. I’m JUST SAYIN
