  2. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001032433/article/49ers-rb-coleman-kyle-shanahan-more-creative-now At the bottom of the article, there is an interview with our very own Austin "Hooooop"er. Talks about Shanahan's greatness during his rookie year and ability to predict plays and pick on the defense. That's great and all...but what I take from this is how bad Sarkisian must have been...man, that was disheartening when he was calling the game.

  6. http://www.ajc.com/n...-trufant/nXYPF/ By D. Orlando Ledbetter The Atlanta Journal-Constitution FLOWERY BRANCH — Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff targeted a player and made a trade to land him in theNFL draft Thursday night. It wasn’t the mega-deal, but the Falcons moved up eight spots from 30th to 22nd in a deal with the St. Louis Rams to select Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant. “It’s who we had focused on all throughout the offseason,” Dimitroff said. “We were very fortunate because it was a very eventful middle of the first round. It was very, very active with a lot of trade discussions.” The Falcons knew they had to get in front of Minnesota to select Trufant. The Vikings had the 23rd and 25th picks. They ended up selecting Florida State cornerback Xavier Rhodes. Falcons coach Mike Smith said that Trufant, who was a team captain for the Huskies, will compete for a starting position. “I’m very excited about the pick,” Smith said. They gave up a third- and a sixth-round pick and will get a seventh-rounder next season from the Rams. The Falcons had a need a cornerback. Three of the top five cornerbacks from last season are no longer with the team. Brent Grimes (Miami) and Christopher Owens (Cleveland) left during free agency. Dunta Robinson was released and has signed with Kansas City. Trufant, who’s 6-foot, 190 pounds, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.38 seconds at the NFL scouting combine. He will become the third Trufant to make it to the NFL. His brothers Marcus (Seattle) and Isaiah (Jets) are already in the NFL. “They told me that it’s time to grind and try to make a name for myself.,” Trufant said. The youngest Trufant is a big corner. “I don’t know the last time when there’s been three brothers in the NFL,” Trufant said during his interview at the combine. “It’s definitely a milestone. It’s big for our family, and our city. And so I’m just going to (keep) it going.” Marcus Trufant played at Washington State and was selected in the first round (11th overall) of the 2003 draft. He made Sporting News’ Pro Bowl team in 2007. Isaiah Trufant played at Eastern Washington and made the Jets’ roster after spending time in the Arena Football League and the United Football League. The Trufants all play cornerback and are from Tacoma, Wash. Desmond wants to eventually make a name for himself. “I have been waiting for this opportunity my whole life,” he said. “All the workouts, all of the season work, all the games — everything is coming down to this moment. I’m very excited.” Trufant draws some inspiration from Isaiah’s climb up the rough side of the football mountain into the NFL. “I think my brother Isaiah, he definitely took the long road,” Trufant said. “He’s a very resilient person. It just shows that you never give up on your dream. People might say that you can’t do this or you can’t do that, or you’re too short or you’re not big enough. He just kept working.” Isaiah and Marcus joined Trufant at the Senior Bowl. We hadn’t been together for a while, so that was cool to just spend some time and talk,” Trufant said. “I love my brothers, love my family. And I’m just going to keep the legacy going.” He considers his instincts, quick feet and his breaks on the ball to be strengths. At Washington, he played in 50 games and had six interceptions and 33 pass breakups. He was named to the All-Pac-12 first-team last season. This is the guy they had their eyes on throughout the off-season. I'm 100% behind this pick. Let's get to work Trufant.
  7. Just saw this video that's posted on the website. Sounds like man I'd want with a great deal of control in my war room. LINK NOTES -Might trade up, down or around our pick -Character isn't as big of an issue with certain positions. -Happy to have a full draft. Not just to pick, but maybe to deal picks. -Has good relationships around the league so conducive for trades. -Likes our pick at 30 because teams might want to make a run on a QB late in the first round. -After making a deal for Julio, teams now contact us to see if we are interested in trading up or down. They know we're willing make moves. -Has already spoken to various teams about potential moves. Doesn't think it's smart to go in without a plan. -TD and Smitty are always concerned about the future. -Really excited about 11 picks, but stressed that it doesn't mean we come out with 11. All in all, we're lucky to have a GM like this. He's proactive and willing to take risks.
  8. 1. He has achieved everything in the NFL except win a championship. 2. Played last two years to get to Big game. 3. 5% was for scenario like this for a NFCG or a SB loss. 4. Would like to go out with a ring and needs to work hard for couple more games. 5. Looking for challenge with all pro LB and pro bowl safeties. 6. Its not just me but its also for big dogs outside in RW and JJ to play at highlevel. 7. Key for his career, surround yourself with no people not yes people. My Mom and my Brother call me jerk plenty of times and correct me or give a different perspective. 8. Game is more than regular be physical and tough all rah rah but like Smitty coaches its about playing loose and have fun while being tough and hard nosed.
  9. http://www.nfl.com/v...defense-rise-up I didn't know how funny DeCoud was until this year. With his 'Meow' game on SC, his locker room and sideline antics, and now this, he's starting to become one of my favorite players. And he balls out every Sunday!
  10. I know some panther fans will never forgive him for the 2008 playoffs and the 2009 season. But I still have love for the player and leader he was for our team. Here is the interview for the fans who didn't get to hear him. http://charlotte.cbslocal.com/?podcast_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.podtrac.com%2Fpts%2Fredirect.mp3%2Fnyc.podcast.play.it%2Fmedia%2Fd0%2Fd0%2Fd1%2Fd0%2FdZ%2FdJ%2FdE%2F10ZJE_3.MP3&podcast_name=The+Drive&podcast_artist=Jay+Weezie&station_id=61&audio_link=true&config_file=config.xml&dcid=CBS.CHARLOTTE
  11. http://www.atlantafalcons.com/ If anyone hasn't heard it yet. The interview talks about a bunch of things. Not a bad interview.
  12. I watched the highlights on the NFL network Sunday night. I couldn't believe there was no highlight of HD stiff arming the Viking LB Henderson on his way to the endzone. I checked online and still there's no video. Of all the plays they showed this should be the first. What's going on in the booth over there at the NFL network?
