Falcons Quote(s) of the Day: The Falcons Draft Leaders


Several Falcons took some time to talk to the media today. Spoon and Ryan both fielded questions.

Our talented young backer had this to say:

"[Without Curtis] I have to be a little more verbal with the defense. I look forward to it."

Our icey-veined QB had this to say:

"I'm certainly in a 'win now' mode. That's the only way to approach the NFL."

"[Getting hit] is part of playing the position. My focus is getting the ball out and getting up after getting hit."

For the fans of all but one NFL team, the three months between the end of the season and the draft are unbearable. When your team takes a low key approach to free agency, the pre-draft doldrums drag on and on. And now football is back! Hooray!

For serious though, comments like these are fanfreakingtastic. We have some true leaders on this team, and even if that Lombardi is still out of reach, I'm confident we're headed in the right direction. Dimitroff and company have filled our roster with capable leaders.

The draft is only a few days away. If you're not excited about the future, then you should be. So quit lamenting our deficiencies. Or don't.
