Allen and I are back to finish up our commentary of the second half of the Atlanta Falcons’ overtime battle with the New Orleans Saints in 2011. Towards the end we are joined by podcast favorite, Tom Melton, as a third wheel. Before we jump into the game, we of course have to discuss some more current Falcons topics including how the Falcons defensive line rotation might utilize Adrian Clayborn and Jonathan Babineaux, along with thoughts on rookie impacts of Vic Beasley and Joey Mbu. We also discuss what we think of the recent reports that former Falcons head coach Mike Smith might be writing a book. During our second-half commentary, Allen expresses his love of Mark Ingram but also his disdain for my bad jokes about short people. We discuss Smith’s bad challenges, Jason Snelling’s greatness, Thomas DeCoud’s dancing, Joe Hawley’s epic flops and whether we bear witness to Ray Edwards’ best play in a Falcons uniform. Brian VanGorder’s questionable defensive calls, Tyson Jackson’s weight-loss program, Curtis Lofton’s blitzing, Roman Harper’s hands, Mike Mularkey’s screens and the illustrious football alumni of the University of Pittsburgh are also all topics of discussion. We finish by asking Tom to pull some strings on Facebook to try and get Jurrell Casey in Atlanta and rank Mike Peterson among Falcons historical free-agent signings.
