Falcons TWESTOTE (Tweet, Stat, or Quote) of the Day

Really dislike wonder about AJC sports writers sometimes.

It's a little dated (article was published Monday), but here's a gem from Mark Bradley:

I was inundated by various forms of electronic missives, all wanting to know: Should the Falcons pursue Bob Sanders?

And my answer — and I stress this is just my answer — is no.

I realize he’s a safety of high caliber when healthy, and the Falcons could still use help in the secondary. But those two words — "when healthy" — are the reason the Indianapolis Colts, who have defensive issues of their own, cut a safety of such high quality.

Let me be clear: I'm glad he's opposed to signing Sanders. But I'm lost re: his rationale. Does he even follow Falcons football? We just cut Erik Coleman because (1) he was too costly as a backup and (2) TD/Smitty have (justifiably and very publicly) put their faith in Moore/Decoud. It's not that Sanders is injury prone; it all comes down to cost.

I actually laughed out loud while reading this. Chocolate milk flew out my nose. For serious.
