  1. F.U it was. Joe Horn was a ****. Not a mentor. It was Finn And Coach Robieski calling his mom and riding his *** that did it. Horn may have implanted some ideas ethics, but he was not around long enough to change White.
  2. REALLY? Id rather have him back on the team than 90% of what we have now. Dude has game. Who do think it was who pushed Roddy W. to be who he is today? Roddy hated him at first and after a while acknowledged Finn was the one who pushed him. GTFO.
  3. HD whatever. The Browns would give king bling to have one guy able to catch a ball and get a cpl yards after.

  5. I was being a smart-azz. Seems like we whiffed there.
  6. The Texans have A LB named Akeem Dent. I wonder if they would be interested in doing a trade. Seems like a fair trade.
  7. F-Yeah Miko! The fan base you love to abuse. Yo booty is back!
  8. Whatever. Can he keep Matt Ryan upright? That's all that matters.
  9. Wait a min. Is it me or should this dude be assaulting a frozen wall and fighting the Black Watch right now?
  10. Thankyew. But as funky fresh and fly as I am, I have no idea what that means. I don't keep up with squat.
  11. Thing is, I don't think Matthews will struggle at LT. RT I can't even guess about right now.
  12. Jake Matthews open to left tackle By Vaughn McClure | ESPN.com With the strong possibility the Atlanta Falcons have lost starting left tackle Sam Baker for the season with a patella-related injury, rookie right tackle Jake Matthews said he is ready to switch to left tackle. Baker injured his right knee during the second quarter of Saturday's 32-7 preseason loss to the Houston Texans. A source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Baker ruptured his patella tendon; the injury is likely to end his season. The former first-round pick underwent season-ending patella surgery on his left knee last season and missed a total of 12 games. AP Photo/David GoldmanJake Matthews is willing to move to left tackle if the Falcons ask him. Matthews, this year's sixth-overall pick, came to the Falcons as a right tackle but was anticipated to be the left tackle of the future. The future seems to be now. "I'll do it," Matthews told ESPN.com of moving to left tackle. "That's what they drafted me for: to come here and play wherever. And something I take a lot of pride in is my versatility and being able to play on either side. If they ask me to move over, I'll be happy to do it." Matthews wasn't immediately aware of Baker's status but expressed his feelings about the injury. "I don't really know what happened, but he was definitely one of the vocal leaders and leaders of the offensive line," Matthews said of Baker. "The guy has been around doing it for a long time. He's definitely one of the crucial pieces of the offensive line." Matthews played left tackle at Texas A&M last season so any transition should be natural. He felt like he matured from Week 1 to Week 2 in the preseason. "I thought I got better," Matthews said of facing the Texans. "I thought I did good things. I definitely did better than the first game. I felt more comfortable. I've just got to keep working. I've got to check that tape and keep getting better." Coach Mike Smith was hesitant to "speculate" about moving Matthews. "We would have a number of options," Smith said. "Again, our No. 1 goal would be to put the five best offensive linemen out there. We obviously know that he is one of the five best because he is a starter. Is he our best left tackle, our best option? That is something that we will have to determine if we have to address that." If the Falcons indeed move Matthews to left tackle, as expected, then either Lamar Holmes or Ryan Schraeder will take his place on the right side, at least in the interim. The best option at right tackle might be veteran newcomer Gabe Carimi, but Carimi is nursing an ankle injury that kept him out of the first two preseason games. Carimi impressed the coaches throughout camp with his ability to play right tackle and both guard spots. As for Holmes, he started 15 games last season and played both tackle spots following Baker's injury. Holmes had a bad offseason but has improved daily in training camp. "Ever since we got Coach [Mike] Tice, Coach Tice has brought different elements to my game," Holmes said. "He's showed me a couple of different things that I can do with my pass sets. He's helping me add tools to my toolbox." It remains unclear if the Falcons plan to add another veteran tackle to the mix. As for Baker, a medical source said a significant injury to the patellofemoral mechanism typically is just as challenging as rehabbing from an ACL tear. Baker's future with the Falcons is in serious doubt. He signed a six-year, $41.1 million deal in 2013 that included $18.25 million guaranteed. His cap figures for the next five seasons are $6.05 million (2014), $7.3 million, $8.05 million, $9.3 million, and $6.6 million.
  13. Agreed. Howsoever you'd like to interpret that, is, of course, up to you.
  14. Smith doesn’t rule out moving Matthews to left tackle By D. Orlando Ledbetter The Atlanta Journal-Constitution HOUSTON — With left tackle Sam Baker going down with what appeared to be a serious knee injury, the Falcons will consider moving prized rookie Jake Matthews to left tackle. In the 32-7 loss to the Texans, Baker, who was coming back from right knee surgery, was taken off the field when his right knee buckled. Several veteran onlookers said the injury appeared to be hyper-extension with possible ligament damage. The Falcons who had access state of the art medical equipment in the stadium and had an initial diagnosis, wouldn’t reveal the extent or nature of Baker’s injury. “In terms of Sam Baker, I don’t have an update,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “We’ll have more information in the next 24 hours and as soon as we do, we’ll let you guys know.” Normally, if a player is out for the season, Smith will announce the injury. If the player has a chance to return, Smith will minimally report to comply with the league’s injury reporting rules. Left guard Justin Blalock talked to Baker after the game and seem to give hope that the team would know more later in the week about Baker’s status. “It was tough,” Blalock said. “Obviously, I can’t discuss the injury. I’m not a doctor. I guess we’ll see sometimes later this week about what his status is.” The Falcons sent in Lamar Holmes to replace Baker. Holmes started 15 games last season, most of them at left tackle after Baker went down. Smith seemed open to moving Matthews to left tackle if Baker is out of the season. “I don’t want to speculate in terms of what we would do,” Smith said. “We’d have a number of options. Again, our number one goal would be to put the five best offensive linemen out there. We obviously know that he’s one of the five best because he’s a starter. Is he our best left tackle? Is he our best option? That’s something we’ll have to determine if we have to address that.” Matthews had a strong outing after having two penalties in his NFL debut against Miami. “I thought Jake did some good things,” Smith said. “He had some tough battles, but I thought he did a nice job. He’s going to be a good player in this league.” Several players took their helmets off and watched on one-knee as Baker was helped and driven off the field. “It’s tough,” quarterback Matt Ryan said. “I don’t know the severity of Sam’s injury. We’ll have to see how that shakes out. You don’t want to see anybody go down, especially in the (exhibition) season. It’s part of the deal, buy it’s not one of the things you like seeing as a player.”
  15. See, that's where yer fooked. I want my team to be successful and I don't accept failure. I'm also not a blind homer if that's what yer thinking. I'll be the first to blame ****** if they ain't up to par. But I refuse to go into a season not having faith in my team. I back them every day that ends in Y. If you don't, STFU and don't talk to me. You ain't worth arguing with.
