when your owner calls you out for being 'soft', and the rest of the league's players do a 'top 100' and not a single Falcon makes the list,and you have new coaches intent on being 'tough'....AND there are 14 HBO cameras at padded practice, you know what you get?

*not saying this is a bad idea. But, something in my gut tells me some of this 'tough stance' conditioning on the first day of padded practice is because of Kard Knocks. :whistle:

lets pray we get out of camp without too many injuries :pray:

Steven Jackson injured his hamstring again? Shocker... Why did we sign this darn guy? I mean, he's been battling hamstring injuries since his 5th year in the dang league. .. Just saying. He was one heck of a running back in his prime, but even when he was on field for us he wasn't anything special.

Toughness Crusade” has extended all the way to the quarterback position.

After tossing an interception to cornerback Robert Alford, quarterback Matt Ryan made the tackle – a form tackle – and took Alford to the ground. :shock:

However, Ryan doesn’t plan to throw his helmet into the ring for the starting free safety position.

“There has been no talk of that (moving to free safety),” Ryan said. “It was just one of those things, first day in pads. (When) we started off with the Oklahoma drill and Smitty kind of made the point that we needed to be a little bit more physical. In good nature, I took Robert to the ground.

“But that was just some of the fun that you have during training camp. He made a great play. … one of the things that gets lost in the shuffle is that I threw a pick. He made a good play, but it was fun.”


this is exactly what I expected when I heard HBO was coming to town. Our 100 million dollar QB formtackling in camp? That is f*cking ridiculous.

If they don't show Smith chewing Ryan's a$$ off on Hard Knocks, Im going with the assumption that
this is a byproduct of it. :whistle:

Yeah............. I will be happy when TD and Smith are out of here. I know that TD drafted Ryan, and that Smith has been our, "best coach ever," but I hope that Ryan gets another chance with a better front office before he gets too old.
