Game #10 VS Tampa Bay Buccaneers Review

I knew I wanted to get this one done before Thanksgiving dinner to ensure that I still had my appetite. I may not have finished this one soon enough. Leftwich was off, the line couldn’t protect long enough for his long delivery, a couple of early horrible calls by the officials, negative plays in general, a defense getting worn down and one of the worst days I’ve ever seen by a single offensive lineman in my lifetime....

Falcons make roster moves

One Falcon rookie will have his season begin, while another one will have his season end. The Falcons promoted running back Jason Snelling from the practice squad, and also placed tight end Martrez Milner on injured reserve.

Mid Season Review

Okay, I should have done this last week instead of this week. But I’m glad I waited a week. Last team after the quarter season review we had just come off a win, and it seemed like things were looking up. Well they weren’t. But now after two wins, it does generally seem like things have gotten better. OFFENSE Quarterback – Harrington has struggled and Leftwich hasn’t done a whole lot in his roughly 4 quarters...
