Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White thinks his team is going to outscore everyone in 2011 after the team added receiver Julio Jones in the draft. My first reaction: oooooooooh, we’re real scared! The Falcons are not going to outscore the Green Bay Packers, the team that whipped them 48-21 in the playoffs.
Yeah, the Atlanta Falcons and their nondescript, no-personality, never-won-a-playoff-game quarterback are a decent team. They still looked like a naked, drunken whore when the Green Bay Packers showed up and bent them over the kitchen table in the playoffs, though. After the Packers were done pounding away, the Falcons were sent home with a sore ass and the numbers 48-21 tattooed on their brains. So what do the Falcons do when the NFL Draft rolls around?
There are a lot of curses in sports, several of them relate to covers. There’s the curse of the Sports Illustrated cover and the curse of the Madden cover. Actually, I think if you’re on the cover of anything other than GQ or Esquire, you’re probably going to be cursed in some way. That’s because […]

Okay, let’s move past the obvious har-har headline and just get to the point. This is Aaron Rodgers. Suck on my fucking nuts, Colin Cowherd! Hahahahahaha! The Green Bay Packers rolled into Atlanta with all the expectations and in a game you’d think they’d lay an egg because they believed their own hype, they flat-out […]
The Green Bay Packers play the Atlanta Falcons this week and everyone wants to compare Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers with Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. There’s good reason for such nonsense — they’re both young, they’ve both been called the next so-and-so, they’ve both enjoyed success early in their career, etc. In fact, if you take […]
I’ve never had an issue with ESPN Radio and television personality Colin Cowherd until recently, but that’s mostly because I stopped listening to anything he had to say several years ago. Back then, I often listened to his morning radio show and I sometimes found him insightful and always felt he called it as he […]
If you remember the first time the Green Bay Packers played the Atlanta Falcons this season, you’ll remember coach Mike McCarthy not challenging a fourth-and-3 catch by Falcons tight end Tony Gonzales. The replay showed Gonzales didn’t make the catch, but the televisions in the Georgia Dome were delayed at least 15 seconds and the […]
There was a point in the season when everyone thought the answer to the question was a foregone conclusion. Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews. Then, a series of injuries and near constant double and triple teams started to slow Matthews. That isn’t to say his presence wasn’t felt. Matthews opens things up for his […]

We were ready to chalk this one of up to another case of Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy being a moron. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case. In the second quarter, the Falcons converted a fourth-and-3 when Matt Ryan passed to tight end Tony Gonzales for six yards. The replay showed that […]
