Pre-Season Open Thread: Atlanta Falcons vs. San Diego Chargers



Look at Michael Turner running over those helpless people. Never has an image of men being crushed beneath the wheels of a mighty train amused me so.

We're back for the third week of pre-season games, this time against our hated disliked corpulent erstwhile foes in San Diego. The Chargers are a very good team and are likely to be the class of the AFC West this season, so this is a very good chance for us to see how we match up against an upper echelon squad. My guess: Pretty darn well.

And since there ain't no party like a Georgia Dome party, let's kick this off.

Who? Atlanta Falcons vs. San Diego Chargers, 8 p.m. EST

Where? Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia

Weather? Dome equipped with solid roof = no concerns about weather.

Fun Fact? Our very own Michael Turner once played second fiddle to LaDanian Tomlinson in San Diego. In turn, they signed Kynan Forney, who used to start for us at guard. No offense to Forney, but I think I'm happier with the guy we grabbed from San Diego.

Odds? Never tell me the odds!
