Damnit, Finneran! You And Your Knee!

With the Falcons going into next year with exactly two proven quantities in their receiving corps, you knew something would go wrong. It now appears that Brian Finneran has managed to re-injure his knee. There's no word yet as to whether he was going off a ramp on his jet ski when it happened, but let's go with that theory until we know for sure. There's no word on how bad it is yet, but if it's anything severe they'll likely lock him down for the entire season again. If that happens, Fred Gibson is the likeliest candidate to replace him.

And so we face the possibility of starting the season without our starting QB, a reliable receiver, our best defensive tackle, and a speedy outside linebacker. All according to plan!
