Allen and I are back this week to do another commentary of a 2012 Atlanta Falcons game, but before we do, we talk to former Falcons great running back Jamal Anderson. In talking to Jamal, I get his thoughts and memories of the 1998-99 playoffs and the highs and lows of the team’s wins over the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings, size and durability of today’s running backs, Michael Turner and the Falcons running backs of today, the benefits of running behind zone-blocking scheme and running back-by-committee systems, who will win in a competition between Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman in training camp, the “Dirty Bird” dance and who would win in a best-of-seven series between the 1998 and 2012 Falcons teams.
When Allen and I get back to the commentary, this time we’re watching the Week 2 Monday Night contest against the Denver Broncos from 2012. During the game, we discuss Peria Jerry’s butt tackle, Peyton Manning’s arm strength, Michael Turner’s running, Roddy White’s decline, replacement refs, Dominique Franks, avoiding Von Miller, Asante Samuel’s tackling and how ready Willy Mo was.
Duration: 1 hours, 13 minutes
