Normally on Saturday mornings I’m out at some youth football field with the Smyrna Spartans. But with two evening playoff games today, I found myself with nothing to do and ended up in my own little Falcons’ tweetfest!

(BTW, Good Luck to Coach Bill Harris and the 7-year Spartans and to Coach Broderick Archie and the 8-year old Spartans in the semifinals. Both of them do it the “right way” and are  one win away from the NWGYFL Super Bowl!!!)

Here are some of the tweets:

#Falcons will be without their leading tackler (52) in LB @SeanWSpoon56 (ankle injury).

D. Orlando Ledbetter@AJCFalcons

#Falcons S Thomas DeCoud is the only NFC player with 4 INTs & sack.

D. Orlando Ledbetter@AJCFalcons

#Falcons DE John Abraham has 119 sacks, most by active player. But can he get to Brees?

D. Orlando Ledbetter@AJCFalcons

#Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez has 99 rec. TDs & needs 1 to become 1st TE & 8th player with 100.

D. Orlando Ledbetter@AJCFalcons

#Falcons @RoddyWhiteTV had 7 catches for 118 yards last wk. Had 11 catches for 127 yards in last game at NO. #atlno12

D. Orlando Ledbetter@AJCFalcons

#Falcons RB Michael Turner rushed TD last week. Has 60 career rush TDs & needs 1 to equal totals of OJ Simpson & Herschel Walker. #atlno12

D. Orlando Ledbetter@AJCFalcons

Is John Madden right about the Falcons? Are they just a “Solid” 8-0 football team.

D. Orland Ledbetter@AJCFalcons

NFL Network: National media flocking to Falcons WR Roddy White for quips, sound bites.

D. Orlando Ledbetter@AJCFalcons

When Ryan has 3+TD passes, team is 15-0 (4-0 n 2012). Only Daryle Lamonica (19-0) has better record n games with 3+ TDs.

In career, #Falcons are 29-0 when quarterback Matt Ryan has 100+ rating (6-0 in 2012).

D. Orlando Ledbetter@AJCFalcons

#Falcons QB Matt Ryan ranks 3rd in NFL with 103 rating. #atlno12

Under head coach Mike Smith, #Falcons are 27-10 (.730) in games decided by 1 score. #atlno12

D. Orlando Ledbetter@AJCFalcons

#Falcons are 8-0 for 1st time in team history & 15th team since 1978 (16-game schedule) to start 8-0.#atlno12

Go BSknees…really, go. Gonzo#88 and Rowdy#84 always come up huge in the swamp. I look for 175 yrds and 2 TDs between the two tomorrow against that sorry a$$ Taint D. Turner ties OJ (although he might would rather be associated with Herschel). Coons bust it open in the 2nd half 37-31 and effectively end the Aints season. RISE UP! (Sure would enjoy seeing Spoon#56 put one of them slobberknockers on Breese…oh well in a few weeks then)

They mentioned it ONCE and only ONCE. The Great and Exalted Peyton Manning LOST his first 3 Playoff Games. I don’t remember anyone speaking of him or his teams not being taken seriously.
