    For an old guy, I stay fairly active. I played football in HS, but frankly
    was just too small to be effective (5'6") at much of anything. So, I
    swam competitively and ran competitively. Played
    intramural ball in college. Today, triathlons, as much as I can. I'm
    a pretty good long distance swimmer, and run fairly well for my age.
    Nobody looks good in those damned spandex biking shorts!!! Well,
    other than this one woman that I tend to follow (not terrible, looking
    up at her *** for 50+ miles)... Yes, that's definitely an interest!

    Also, while I grew up in surburbs of Atlanta and lived there until
    2005, I relocated down to the center of the state on Lake Sinclair.
    Now, lots of swimming, boating, floating, drankin', and watching
    the Falcons on TV...
  1. Like you, I'm too old to relive this Rankin Smith crap... I like Quinn, but the team as a whole seemed largely ill-prepared and out-manned at nearly every turn. We had some beautiful individual performances, notably Grady and Sanu looked good. I was disappointed in #11, he seems lethargic. And Freeman; great guy but Ito is doing a helluva lot better... And the offense play calling was boring and predictable.
  2. Doug, I think you nailed it. The new guy fetching punts did a pretty good job. Grady was and is a beast. Jones looked really good; glad to have him back. I haven't seen much criticism of Freeman; he's not getting it done. MR2 looks ok, but seems to make ghastly bad decisions from time to time. O play calling; GHASTLY! WTF? Really? My daughter literally calls plays for the O in her H/S, and she does one helluva lot better than what we saw on Sunday; unbelievably predictable and uninspired. Sometimes, when it's an obvious run situation, you need to call a play-action pass. Sometimes, when it's 3rd and fairly long, we need the deep drop draw play with the meat up front paving the way for a stud RB. Nope. Doesn't happen.
  3. I dont know about DQ being a "fuvkin idiot", but the team as a whole looks BAD. O play calling is predictive. O line isn't showing why we drafted O line... D isn't jelling at all. Run D seems to be non-existant. Ryan is frustrated and forcing the ball; he doesn't force it well; never has. Then, he's throwing late or looking at the receiver the whole time. Did I mention that Freeman looks like he should've been cut? It's bad. I didnt necessarily expect a win, but this is flat out embarrassing.
  4. Tim was more than a good player; he was simply great. He is and was extremely smart, and he quite literally have it (the game, and therefor us) his all. It's just how he is. He IS very strong; even when his body leaves him, he is strong in mind and spirit. Please, lets debate the merits and risks of playing football in another place. I'm glad he's had a chance to see his kids grow and mature. I wish his kids could've seen him 30 years ago... He, truly, is a LIFE mentor for us all.
  5. Props also to the team. Starting this season they seem to loaf around, almost lethargic. Not the last 2 games, particularly this one. Everyone was scrapping, both early and late. It's like (for a nice change) they actually WANTED to win the danged game vs. felt like it was owed to them.
