1:24:10 pm Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez made it clear - winning a Super Bowl is his No. 1 objective. "That's the only reason I left Kansas City," he said. "The window's closing. I can't play too much longer, and I want a shot at it."

1:20:22 pm Against Miami, Falcons RB Michael Turner was bottled up as the Dolphins focused on stopping the run game. However, if the passing game continues to find success, Turner said he should find more room to run. "Eventually this year, well, logically that's supposed to happen," Turner said, laughing.

1:18:12 pm Falcons DT Johnathan Babineaux isn't reading too much into Carolina QB Jake Delhomme's poor, 73-yards and four interceptions performance on Sunday. "Everyone has bad weeks in this league," Babineaux said. "But I'm sure he'll bounce back and give us his best."

1:16:40 pm With the run game not very productive against Miami, Falcons QB Matt Ryan said it's important to find several ways to attack opponents. "Week in and week out, we're going to have to find ways to win," Ryan said. "Whether it's the pass, the run or special teams, we just have to find ways."

1:15:29 pm Atlanta's schedule is significantly tougher than last year, making Sunday's divisional game at home against Carolina that much more important. "If you win the division you're in the playoffs," WR Brian Finneran said. "...When you get a divisional opponent at home you really try to take care of business."

1:14:51 pm With Ron Meeks as the new defensive coordinator for Carolina this season, the Falcons figure to see a different look than in recent previous seasons. "Last year they flew around more," Falcons WR Brian Finneran said. "But now they play more cover 2, with some 3. But those guys are physical ball hawks."

1:06:42 pm The Falcons put up 19 points on a Miami defense that loaded the box and took away the run. TE Tony Gonzalez said they'll have to do much better against Carolina. "If you ask this offense, they'll tell you we left some plays out there."

1:04:42 pm Everyone knows Carolina QB Jake Delhomme had a terrible week this past Sunday, even Falcons S Erik Coleman. "It's tough for us, Jake Delhomme is a Pro Bowl QB," Coleman said. "You can't get caught up in what happened (in Carolina's) last game because we know we're different from our last game."

1:03:56 pm The Falcons know Carolina will try to run the ball with DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. "We have to do a good job and control the run game," Falcons DE Jamaal Anderson said. "And after that we need to stop the big play downfield."

1:02:33 pm Falcons DE Jamaal Anderson said the key to Sunday's game against Carolina will be "ball disruption," something the team preaches each practice.

So far NO mention of Jerry... I think we would find out more around 5pm

Man, I hope the guy who came up with this rapid reports idea got a promotion. Great idea!

Glad to hear it...definitely should have put at least 30 up on them.
