FLOWERY BRANCH — Just got to the Branch today, waiting for the open locker room session at 11:40 a.m.
After the game on Sunday in Philadelphia, the lovely Ashley Fox of ESPN.com asked me when the”Undefeated” talk would start.
I told her to wait until the Falcons get to 10-0, which would be a new franchise mark for most wins in a row. They’ve won nine in a row twice, in 1980 and 1998.
Then, I was working on the laptop on Monday and the wife (Queen Led) brought Mike Freeman’s book in from a stack I had in the garage.
I’m going to wait awhile before I track down Mercury Morrris, Don Shula and the rest of the South Florida crew.
In the meantime, I’ll enjoy Freeman’s book.
But, the schedule doesn’t look too daunting. Both of the Saints games — Nov. 11 and Thursday, Nov. 29– will be tough. Then there’s the matter of facing the defending Super Bowl champs on Dec. 16 and more than a safety will be required.
When should the “Undefeated” chatter start?
