    http://www.wtoc.com/2019/03/24/hospital-after-armed-robbery-berwick-shopping-center/ ****** is one of our members here. I am unsure of his member name here. but he is one of the people who reached out to staying with me during the playoff games in 2012. He is serving. I do not know how long he has served, but I know he has zero plans of ever getting out. he has been stationed in Savannah for a few years. Last night he was at a sports bar where 2 robbers came in from the back. Someone screamed they were getting robbed and people hit the floor, Except for him. He confronted the guys and took a bullet to his back, that passed thru to his hip. His actions literally saved 5 peoples lives. The 2 robbers ended up running and the he went outside looking for help. Several people were there helping him and being grateful for all that he did. He is not only a hero across seas, not just a hero who served, but also a hero for standing up and saving peoples lives II'm American soil. The last thing I know is that they have taken him of the breathing machine. They removed a piece of his lung. and he is still in ICU. I know with him being a fighter, he will be fine. And with God on his side, there is 100% no doubt in my mind. However still pray for him, his family and friends. Update:he has been released from ICU and has taken a few steps. Uodate 2: they are expecting a full recovery and he is looking to go home within the week As a respect to him. He has asked that no one say his name.

    Let's be honest. That game was very one-sided when it came to officiating. The Rams have every right to be upset. Getting a crew that had screwed them multiple times over, and they again wind up with over double the penalties and penalty yards (7 for 64 yards vs the Saints 3 for 20 yards). Not to mention, the Rams would've won even earlier if not for the Goff no call. Need I mention all the other no calls? And then, the Saints get awarded a make up PI after a previous no call. Truly one sided officiating. The Rams should write in to the NFL about the egregious errors here. It's truly unfair. Thankfully they still won - it would've been heartbreaking if the zebras managed to steal another NFCCG away for the Saints. ... PS - **** the Saints. Sincerely, Every Other Teams Fans

    As the rage throughout Who Dat Nation continues following Sunday's no-call on a pass interference on Rams corner Nickell Robey-Coleman, L.A. prepares for the Super Bowl. The blatant non-call has led to a cavalcade of anger from New Orleans Saints players, fans, and many non-partisan spectators. In an odd twist, the pervasive bitterness now seems poised to morph into a locker-room rallying cry in Los Angeles. Respected veteran left tackle Andrew Whitworthjoined the Rich Eisen Show on Tuesday and noted the call wasn't the only one missed in the game. "You see the arguments from some of the Saints' players about the rule about the commissioner restarting the game over or from that point or whatever," Whitworth told Eisen, via Turf Show Times. "My argument to that would be, Rich, is then Jared Goff got a facemask on the second down on the possession before that was not called. That'd be first-and-goal at the 1 down three points. If you look at our odds from the 1 this season, that's seven points. So, they'd be down four, and a field goal wouldn't matter. They would have had to score in that situation either way. So, the reality is, where is the last foul that you want to argue? Whether it's blatant or not is not a matter. It's whether it's a foul. "So, it's just one of those things that's a slippery slope, and it's an excuse. [However] you cut it. And the reality is they got football after that snap. They played in overtime with the football. New England had the same situation and won the game. They didn't score; we did. "We can argue about it all day, but they had an opportunity to win the game and we won it." Heading to the first Super Bowl of his 13-year NFL career, Whitworth has had his experience with bitterness after playoff losses following referee's decisions. He was part of a Cincinnati Bengals team that fell to the Pittsburgh Steelersafter former assistant coach Joey Porter coaxed a personal foul penalty. "I've played a ton of games. I've had a ton of calls that could have gone one way or the other or should have or whatever that have claimed to have been missed," he said. "But I've lost a playoff game to a coach being on the field getting a personal foul drawn from our players. "So, I've experienced it, man, and I know it's tough. But the reality is, football was played after that snap, and you know what, whatever team tries to win the game from there and wins it won the football game."

    My teammates and I had a very sobering experience that really hit us all today as we watched the news. The Ethiopian Airways plane that crashed was the same plane we had previously flown to South Africa on. Merely hours later a horrible event occurred and many lost their lives and many families are forever heartbroken. Originally our team was scheduled to travel on this plane to Nairobi. I am lucky to write this very post. Do not fret for me, as I live every day to its fullest and am convinced after this bit of luck, divine intervention or whatever cosmic act occurred that there is no other way to live. The moral of the story is simple. Be grateful for every breath, be decent as you can and live and love to the fullest. There is no other way. So kiss your loved one, maybe call an old friend, or better yet warch a Falcona game in a different and more grateful way. I challenge you all to remember just how beautiful the sport of football is, but also remember it’s not everything and there’s no reason to be cruel or petty or spiteful in our discussions. Because in the end it’s a blessing to interact with fellow fans, and to develop friendships in this forum that for me go back two decades.

    Totally fine with it and it makes sense. He was solid when he took over for Schraeder. He's only 27. This keeps him a Falcon until he's 30. At worst you have a solid swing OT.

    Alford gave me two of my very favorite memories as a Falcons fan. I was 1-2 in the 3 games I was able to make at The Georgia Dome. The “1” was his overtime pick 6 against the Redskins. SO much fun. The other happened exactly two years ago today and had me running around my apartment in utter jubilation, certain we’d just built a lead that would hold until the Lombardi was in our hands. If only ..... Thanks for the memories, Alf.

    From a Packers website discussing FA TEs: Luke Stocker Perhaps one of the more unknown free agent options is Luke Stocker, who spent the 2018 season with the Tennessee Titans, and of course new Packers head coach Matt LaFleur. Having a player who is familiar with LaFleur’s scheme could be quite helpful when the offense is being implemented. Stocker is another free agent who isn’t going to wow anyone with his receiving stats.In 2018, he caught 15 passes for 165 yards, with two touchdown pass, which resulted in one of the better receiving seasons that he has put together. However, with Jimmy Graham and the addition of a potential high draft pick, Stocker won’t be expected to fill that receiving role. Now, where Stocker does excel is as a blocker. He’s a physical player that can lineup in multiple spots, including the backfield in two-back sets. Last season, Pro Football Focus rated Stocker as the fifth best pass blocking tight end and he graded very highly as a run blocker as well.

    Been a fan since 1966 I’ve seen them all from Randy Johnson to Matty Ice. Every single one of them. Nobody is even close to #2. These last ten years have been the best run of Falcons football in history and that is due largely to Matt Ryan. Enjoy what you have. At least 20-25 teams would love to have him lining up behind center.

    Does the name Tom Moore ring a bell? Moore was the Indianapolis Colts OC from 1998-2010. Moore wasn’t seen as any type of offensive genius, but it was his relationship and synergy with Peyton Manning that made him indispensable to the Colts during that time. When Manning went to Denver…his first OC was Mike McCoy. McCoy had been the OC there for 3 seasons prior to Manning’s arrival. When Manning balled out…McCoy became one of those ‘hot head coaching candidates’. He got the SD Chargers HC gig – that didn’t go so well. In 2017 and 2018, McCoy got fired from his NFL OC positions mid-season (DEN & ARI). Adam Gase was the next wunderkind to ‘guide’ Manning. His 3-year run as HC of the Dolphins was the definition of non-descript. In GB…the reason why Mike McCarthy essentially was fired was because he no longer was on the same page as his franchise QB, Aaron Rodgers who notoriously became the ‘Audible King’ when plays were relayed from the sideline. But once upon a time, McCarthy was seen as a great offensive architect. I remember a spot on MNF from a few years back that spotlighted the pre-game preparation of Drew Brees/Sean Payton/Pete Carmichael. Brees pretty much ran the meeting. Yes…there was collaboration. But it was Brees dictating what plays he liked in what situations and what he would like to see called. Anybody know who Philip Rivers OC is? Ken Whisenhunt. Not exactly an innovative offensive whizz (pun potentially intended), but a guy endorsed by Rivers as one he can work with…build an offense together with. Yes…in 2015, Matt Ryan needed to be, for lack of better word ‘saved’. Just completing his Age 29 season, he’d just come off a 2 year stretch where the Falcons deteriorated from NFCCG Host to 10-22. Mike Smith had been fired and a new regime was being installed. And even with regard to the entire body of his work…his career YPA stood at a pedestrian 7.2. Ryan felt like he had a career that had stalled. 4 years later, Ryan is a different player. A different person. Under Shanahan and Sark, he improved his completion rate while adding almost a full yard to his YPA. He won an MVP…took the Falcons within a whisker of their first Championship. Kyle Shanahan was an innovative, young offensive mind that helped open up Ryan’s abilities. It took awhile (a season)…but once it took hold – Wow! Ryan finally exploded. So the Matt Ryan that Dirk Koetter will now work with again, is not the same Ryan he last coached in 2014. When Koetter came on board, Ryan wasn’t a finished product. Now he is. His charge now (vs 2012) won’t be to mold him. Koetter wasn't hired to be an Offensive Coordinator so much as he was an Offensive Collaborator; to assist Ryan in leveraging the weapons at his disposal (personnel, scheme, knowledge) to build a balanced and explosive attack. One that controls the pace and tempo of each game. Ultimately, the hiring of Koetter was a nod to the fact that at this juncture familiarity and trust was a critical competitive advantage for his candidacy. It’s certainly possible that Ryan and a guy like Adam Gase could have worked together. But Ryan is bought into Koetter, he’s said so. Ryan isn’t going to show up and be the pupil in this scenario. In a sense, the offense is now his. He’ll be able to remember some of the specific vertical game concepts that Koetter is known for and be able to work with Koetter (as well as Julio) to integrate that into ‘Ryan’s Offense’. We remember that Sark was brought into to run Shanahan’s offense. The issue with Sark ultimately came down to learning curve. Yes, he was better in 2018 than he was in 2017. But with one year of NFL experience under his belt (2004 as OAK QB Coach) before being hired, ultimately DQ decided he miscalculated - the learning curve was too steep. He also knew that another miscalculation means Arthur Blank will decide he miscalculated as well. The hiring of Dirk Koetter is a nod to the fact that the offense, and perhaps the Falcons as they're now constituted are firmly in Matt Ryan’s hands.

    Ladies and Gents, I unironically have missed you all while I have been away. Not going to dwell on the past, I felt I had to take a step back and I did and I think I am better for it, but I just wanted to pop back in and say hello...see how everyone was doing...to let you all know just how funny what happened to the Saints still is to me...how at first I was very apprehensive about Koetter's return but have since warmed to it...and how excited I am for our upcoming offseason. This is an important offseason that needs to be trench focused and we should be right back in the thick of things. I hope you are all well.

    https://theathletic.com/777706/2019/01/20/schultz-blank-on-saints-pre-super-bowl-loss-i-am-smiling/ When I moved to Atlanta nearly 30 years ago, the significance of the Falcons-New Orleans Saints rivalry eluded me. Neither franchise had ever played in a Super Bowl to that point, both were largely associated with spectacular failure, and this struck me as important of a rivalry as, say, a fish stick throwdown between Mrs. Paul’s and the Gorton’s fisherman. I came to learn otherwise. It is the closest thing you’re going to find to a college rivalry in the NFL, with each team reveling in the other’s misery. So it should not come as a surprise that in the eyes of many in Atlanta, a Falcons season mostly devoid of joy hit a high note Sunday when the Saints lost. After leading all but the final five minutes of regulation, the Saints fell, 23-20 to the Los Angeles Rams in overtime in the NFC championship game at the Superdome. What this means is the Rams are going to the Super Bowl — and as the key byproduct of this, the Saints are not. They won’t travel to Atlanta. They won’t play at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in two weeks. They won’t practice all week in the Falcons’ training facility in Flowery Branch. The Falcons are relieved. The Falcons are laughing. The Falcons are happy. Let’s start with the owner. “I am smiling,” Arthur Blank said via text message. “It was a hard fought game, and the Saints’ fans made a big difference early on — but the Rams’ defense played strong from the 1st Q on…” From there, Blank held his tongue (or his texting fingers) a bit. When asked if he had dreaded the thought of the Saints practicing at his team’s facility, he responded, “We welcome the best teams — period.” I texted, “Politically correct. Thanks.” He responded, “Correct.” I cannot confirm that a 76-year-old was sliding across a wood floor in his socks on the other end of the phone. In the AFC championship game, New England (Atlanta fans’ second least-favorite team) defeated Kansas City 37-31 in overtime. Had the Chiefs won, Atlanta might’ve thrown a parade Monday. Back to the Falcons-Saints thing. The negative feelings between the two franchises are real. That was never more evident than last month when it was confirmed the NFC champion would practice in Flowery Branch, and Falcons head coach Dan Quinn was asked about the possibility of the Saints being in his building. The question seemed to throw him for a loop, and as relayed by The Athletic’s Jason Butt, Quinn stumbled a bit in his response: “Whoever’s playing for the championship … this is the host … I guess I’m more disappointed that we won’t be playing and practicing at our site.” He then suddenly ended the news conference, walking out of the room. The Saints joyously mocked the Falcons for blowing a 28-3 lead in the Super Bowl two years ago. In last season’s visit to New Orleans, a marching band spelled out, “28-3” during a halftime show. There also was repeated video board lampooning. Return fire was expected Sunday. It may seem a bit juvenile for the official Twitter accounts of NFL franchises to be taking jabs at opponents, but welcome to the middle school world of “professional” social media departments. The Falcons Tweeted, “Hey @RamsNFL” nice win,” with a winking emoji and a clip from a 1986 Rams’ music video, “Ram It.” Carolina, another NFC South team, followed: “We are really, really (…) happy the @RamsNFL won.” If we still lived in an adult world, Lombardi and Halas would be throwing down lightning bolts from the heavens. Falcons players also threw shots in cyberspace. Running back Ito Smith Tweeted a string of laughing/crying emojis, then followed with a quick video of him dancing to Choppa Style (by Darwin “Choppa” Turner), which has been the unofficial soundtrack of this Saints’ season. Carolina, another NFC South team, followed: “We are really, really (…) happy the @RamsNFL won.” If we still lived in an adult world, Lombardi and Halas would be throwing down lightning bolts from the heavens.

Running back Ito Smith Tweeted a string of laughing/crying emojis, then followed with a quick video of him dancing to Choppa Style (by Darwin “Choppa” Turner), which has been the unofficial soundtrack of this Saints’ season. (The video posted by @ItoSmith has been removed.) Jabs ranged from the spiritual (Mohamed Sanu) … To the thankful for a blown non-interference call (Damontae Kazee) … To the endorsing of the Rams (Brian Poole). (I had to consult Urban Dictionary: “No cap” translates to “Not lying.” I would be dead without Urban Dictionary.) To the artistically creative (Matt Bryant): And his wife (Melissa Bryant): The Falcons didn’t make it to the playoffs, but their players, fans and owner were spared further misery.
