4:57:30 pm Falcons official injury report: K Jason Elam (hamstring, limited participation), S William Moore (hamstring, limited participation), DT Peria Jerry (chest, full participation).

4:41:25 pm With the addition of CB Brian Williams, CB Chevis Jackson has seen his playing time diminish. "Anytime there's lineup changes, individually they're tough on certain people," Falcons coach Mike Smith said. "But all the decisions we make are based on what gives us the best opportunity to win."

4:40:34 pm Falcons LT Sam Baker sat out both games against Carolina last season, and will be tested when he has to face Carolina DE Julius Peppers. "Sam, our entire O-line and our backs are involved in protection schemes," coach Mike Smith said. "When you got a guy that can rush the passer like Julius you have to know where he is."

4:40:06 pm Falcons coach Mike Smith on the problems Carolina's defense pose: "Defensively they create a lot of issues, starting with their DE (Julius) Peppers. And their LB corps is very fast and effective."

4:39:39 pm Coach Mike Smith said everyone participated in practice today, including S William Moore (hamstring). Moore said on Monday he is expecting to play against Carolina on Sunday.

2:51:01 pm Carolina coach John Fox was asked how his team would try to contain Falcons DE John Abraham. Fox said Abraham has had some great games against the Panthers, but that he's just one person: "Unless he changes his number [we] should know where he is," Fox said.

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

DeCoud better play a good game cause Moore is breathing down his back. If White doesn't overthrow the WildCat play DeCoud is a topic of conversation after that awful FS play. If Moore can play a good SS we can move Coleman back to FS.

Told you guys two weeks ago that Chevis Regal was in trouble. We probably won't keep six CBs and Owens ain't gettin cut. Chevy will be gone next week.
2:51:01 pm Carolina coach John Fox was asked how his team would try to contain Falcons DE John Abraham. Fox said Abraham has had some great games against the Panthers, but that he's just one person: "Unless he changes his number [we] should know where he is," Fox said.
Abe has 5 sacks on De Homo in three seasons. They might want to check that number again.

A vet that knows what you have to do. To win a Lombardi you have to at least go 10-6 overall, 8-4 in the conference and 4-2 in the South. We need to start out 1-0 in the conference and 1-0 in the South.

Yeah we did. Ryan missed Roddy and Wildwood. Elam choked on seven points. The score could have easily been 33-0.
