I guess Moore got hurt on Tuesday practice Falcons on Falcons. Suprised to see that. Rest him hopefully he can play against the giants.

The Falcons should be able to beat the Panthers without Moore or Samuel. They need to blitz Cam all day long and he’ll make mistakes with the football.

I am suprised to see Asante liste as questionable (which means 50/50). Somebody please hide Daba Deuce’s helmet from him. He has suprised me the way he has toughed it out, determined to compete the last couple of weeks. I am equally suprised to see Willy Mo on the injury report at all after the game he played on Thurs. He must have strained his hammy on that last INT when he raced from sideline to sideline. Not sure what to expect from backup SS Chris Hope

A little banged up But it’s all good. Let them heal up. There’s still alot of football left. I’m shorta glad that Ryan is in a slump now & not in the play offs. Is it just me or does Turner look real slow ? Looks like he’s running with a I want to fight you every play. He’s looks like he’s using his upper body more than his legs when he runs. Owens is one of the fastest players on this team !! It just took a coach to show him how to cover. Let’s give Dent some love !! Go dawg One great thing about these Birds They have found that there is all kind of ways to win Without just pound & clock control. Your better teams have been doing this for years !! RISE UP

Even though Smitty may not like or admit it….. he really don’t need to play his injured players. All we need is two more games to lock up home field advantage and if key players aren’t healed in time for the playoffs, that would be a HUGE and coastly mistake!! So Smitty, please rest Samuels, Moore and Turner.
