FLOWERY BRANCH – Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel (shoulder) and defensive tackle Peria Jerry (quadriceps) would not have practiced if the team held a full workout on Monday.

The Falcons, because they play on Thursday, were required to release the injury information even though they only held a walk-through practice in the team’s indoor facility.

Wide receiver Harry Douglas (ankle), safety Charles Mitchell (calf), linebacker Stephen Nicholas (knee), tackle Sam Baker (groin), wide receiver Kevin Cone (groin), tight end Michael Palmer (back), defensive tackle Vance Walker (ribs) and linebacker Sean Weatherspoon (ankle) were all limited in practice.

I’m new to the area and in Baltimore when the Ravens played on Thursday night, it was blacked out locally. You had to have NFL Network. Is it the same here?

SCFalcon…I figured as much, but I noticed that on Comcast they are showing that on channel 810 it will be on. Comcast wouldn’t even have it scheduled on a local channel. I was just thinking it may actually be shown on 810 bc of that

I hope that Mr. Brees can break the record, for the most PICK-6s thrown by a QB in a game,
this coming Thursday night.

I’m pretty sure Thursday night games are available in local markets if there is a sellout. For everyone else, you need NFL Network

Here locally, to get the holy NFL Network, you also have to but 13 other… mostly useless channels in a package. Personally, I think it violates antitrust laws but… nobody in Washington really cares.

Peria has had a pretty good year. When he’s on, we stuff the run. Asante should be fine. NO surprised us in the last few games by running it and they will continue to try this. If we stuff the run as we did vs Tampa Bay, and force Breezy to play our game, we need to limit big plays and get a few turnovers. On offense, be efficient, run first, move the ball. We got this.

No doubt they will try and injury our players…hell, they have a history of this right?
Makes no difference, your team isnt seeing the playoffs and Drew Brees isnt getting any younger is he?
Sean Payton will prbably do wonders with Tony Romo next year though.
I hear paper bags will make the runway at the Nola 2013 fashion shows though.

Falcons defense ranks 22nd in the league against the run. Conversely, the Falcons offense ranks 28th in the league in rushing. Its a good thing NOLA can’t run. Please draft OL.

Glad to know that you ain’t trolls are so aware of THE PAST.

Prior to THE BAG-WEARING ERA, that is.

What memories of wearing those bags, HUH?

So proud you must have been.

Thursday night we are going to introduce you to THE FUTURE!

And ironically your future will remind you of your past…

Eagles just released Jason Babin!! D Led is there ANY way we go after him to replace the garbage Ray Edwards gave us? He’s had about 24 sacks over the past two seasons and he could really help us in our playoff run.
