Tandy Posted March 3, 2008 Share Posted March 3, 2008 I read this morning that Warrick Dunn has asked to be released after the signing of Turner. I understand why, but it really broke my heart, and I wanted to put it out there even though I know he will probably never see this.Warrick Dunn should retire a Falcon. He has given his heart and soul in every play. He has exhibited the character and class that Mr. Blank says he wants to be associated with the Falcon organization. He is certainly by no means a "has-been".Last year was hard for Falcon fans. We saw so many losses and changes and heart-wrenching turns and twists for our team. There were some bright moments though and I, as a season ticket holder went to every home game I possibly could and traveled to Tampa and Carolina for those games.My heart was wrenched with the whole Michael Vick incident last year. I was devastated when Patrick Kerney left. I was frustrated when Grady Jackson was cut. I was hurt when Alge Crumpler was released. I am frantic that DeAngelo Hall stays - I just love him - his passion - his game - even his overly active mouth. But PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE - don't let this happen. Warrick Dunn is my knight in shining armor - my hero in a day and time when heroes are few and far between. His off-field activities - the heart he brings to every game. He is so important to me as a fan. Even though he started his career in Tampa, he will always be a Falcon to me and represents everything the Falcons should be.In a year when so many changes, moves, defeats and betrayals are supposed to be turned around - please convince my hero to stay - to contribute, help us become a winning team again and to someday retire a Falcon. Warrick - Please Stay. Falcons Powers-That-Be, please make it work out.I suppose I'll get flamed for this and I don't care - I didn't have any other way to get it off my chest and so here it is.Thank you,From a Falcons Fan since 1971 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
