I picked up the aforementioned publication today and wanted to post some of what I found interesting in the rag.

Per USA Today Sports Weekly, Volume VIII, No. 1

TV: FOX, Direct TV 711 (lucky?)

TV announcers: **** Stockton, Charles Davis, Jim Mora, Laura Okmin.

"Keys to the game: Third-year man Dennis Dixon will start.....Dixon, who (sic) is mobile, trumped veteran Charlie Batch, 35, who has limited arm strength and old legs, but also owns 13 years in the league and 50 starts. The running game, led by RB Rashard Mendenhall is essential. The Falcons are preaching a predatory mentality on offense. QB Matt Ryan has struggled against 3-4 defenses, but if the Falcons push the ball down the field more and RB Michael Turner returns to his 2008 form, Atlanta will be difficult to handle for a Pittsburg defense that wore down in several games last season."

Ok, what do you think? I found it refreshing to read "predatory offense".

I can understand them being worn down at times because several key players are well into their 30's on offense and defense. In the second half, with our d-line constant rotation, I expect a lot of pressure on Dixon or Batch if he comes in.
