Good day, Falcoholc. Hope everybody's Thanksgiving was fun and filling. And non-violent. Speaking of violent, Ndamukong Suh is a trip, isn't he? I saw his little "action" and was sickened. That dude has issues. It's a real shame because he is a phenomenal talent, but he has the self control of a -- you guessed it -- a typical college student. I wouldn't necessarily label him as a "dirty" player in that he doesn't use unfair tactics/techniques to gain an advantage (that's what I consider a dirty player to be. In my book, Suh would be words that can't be put on the front page), but I will say he has no self-control and is only harming his reputation at this point. That's for another time. I'm here to deliver news.
AJC: Couple quick reads from the AJC for ya this fine day. First, UGA and the Falcons ride the Energy Bus. Both UGA Coach Mark Richt and Falcons Coach Mike Smith credit the Energy Bus as a key ingredient to maintaining a positive attitude in the locker room? Sound strange? Check it out! Next, a quick story about former QB Coach Bill Musgrave facing off against good old Matty Ice. Nice little story attached to that one.
SBN Atlanta: Our good friend Alexander Shirkey writes about the Falcons playoff hopes, combined with their easy schedule. Good stuff, you should definitely check it out.
Blogging Dirty: I actually wasn't sure if this blog was even going or not anymore, but I happened to come across this article by Jamie Kelly which raises some questions about the Falcons pass rush. I'll leave it at that.
Pioneer Press: I believe this is a local paper out in Minnesota somewhere, but this article basically says "no way, no how" to Adrian Peterson playing on Sunday. That's good for us, because that dude can still run wild with the best of them.
Kansas City Star: Scott Garbarini writes a lengthy preview of the game on Sunday. It's long, but it's a good read. It's a pretty detailed description of the game that breaks down a lot of stuff but is worth checking out!
Random Funny: Here's an interesting sign for you. I found it to be pretty amusing!
