For those of you not in the ATL

Things are getting really nasty down here with the floods.

Peter King LOVES Matt Ryan & the Falcons

King feels Ryan has the brightest career prospects of any young QB. Lots of positive Falcons karma flowing throughout this lengthy article.

Jacksonville Jaguars Swipe CB William Middleton

William Middleton, a sleeper pick at cornerback in this year's draft, is heading to the Jaguars and may actually move up the ranks there pretty quickly. What a rotten day.

Peria Jerry Out for the Year With Knee Injury

Obviously, this hurts very very badly...

Matt Ryan as the sculpting team at McFarlane toys sees him. Good job. Some jersey mistakes (where the mesh goes under the collar, it actually runs up to the mid collar on shoulder) but other than that, good stuff. Comes out in December. 6" tall. Retails 11.99 USD. Linky

Proliferation of TV blackouts expected this year

Hopefully this won't include Falcons fans, but it looks like a lot of people may need (gasp) radios to enjoy all their teams' home games this year. Includes an interesting chart showing the growth in sellouts since the 1970s, and thoughts on how this may affect the new CBA.

Atlanta's stock is high because it trounced a potentially lousy Miami team in Week 1. (Red Flag No. 1.) Carolina's stock is low ONLY because it stunk in Week 1. (Red Flag No. 2.) This game means infinitely more to Carolina than Atlanta. (Red Flag No. 3.) Atlanta is battling secondary problems that Miami's pathetic passing game failed to exploit … but those problems still exist. (Red Flag No. 4.) Nobody -- repeat: nobody -- believes in the Panthers right now. (Red Flag No. 5.) Every gambler alive will be putting the Falcons in a 6-point teaser on Sunday. (Red Flag No. 6.) And you're laughing as you read this paragraph because you can't believe Simmons is dumb enough to back Jake Delhomme. (Red Flag No. 7.)

ESPN's Bill Simmons Sure, the Panthers could and might win on Sunday. Granted. But I strongly disagree with the reasoning.

Against Miami, Atlanta's top three tacklers were linebackers, a change from the safeties making most of the tackles in 2008. "Well, we want tackles to happen in front of the safeties," coach Mike Smith said.

Smarter Stats: The Bart Scott All-Stars

Cool little Washington Post article from Doug Farrar (Football Outsiders) describing how raw tackle totals are over-rated. The article then lists the top defenders in percentage of Defeats per Play. FYI - Jonathan Babineaux ended up the #1 DT in the league last year in that category.
