Ray Edwards Ain't Going Nowhere

Fact: the fauxhawk makes you more aerodynamic

Oh no he ain't! Don't believe me? Then ready this Daniel Cox-written gem.

"I don't think Ray's role has been decreased at all," Smith said. "In terms of substitution patterns that we had in the game last week, we weren't able to make changes during our drives when they're in no-huddle. If you do that, you're going to get Peyton at the line of scrimmage."

To be frank, I didn't really notice Ray's absence. Not sure if that's a good thing. I was just too busy drooling over the new-look defense - seeing 11 guys in a 3 point stance will do that to ya. In any case, he didn't see the field as often as he normally does. Yet that said, it seems the drop in snaps was unintentional. When you're playing Peyton Manning, personnel changes can be difficult, if not impossible.

Look, I know we all expected a lot from Ray after he signed with the Falcons. I'm thinking he can still wow us, and to be honest, I think it will happen sooner, rather than later. So, if you read into his playing time last week, please take a deep breath, admit you jumped the gun, and move on.
