Arthur Blank Mad


Recommended Posts

Falcons owner Arthur Blank said it still bothers him that Atlanta's offensive linemen didn't go after Saints S Kenny Vaccaro when he laid a questionable hit on Matt Ryan in Week 1.

The Falcons have made it a priority to get tougher up front. They inked RG Jon Asamoah, a nasty run blocker with a mean streak, and re-signed C Joe Hawley, who gave the unit a backbone when he was inserted into the starting lineup. Atlanta could get even more ferocious by drafting Auburn OT Greg Robinson next month.

Wow!

What else did Arthur Blank say folks?

He said Matt Ryan should have shown some toughness instead of sliding. And that his sliding sent the wrong message to the rest of the team.

He also said he did not have a problem with Samuel Jackson calling him to the carpet for it. And that Samuel Jackson still has his same role with the team.

Vaccaro is an overrated hack. He's a dirty player on a dirty team, and he will be paid back ten fold for that crap. Garbage players deserve garbage time on the bench, and we will RISE UP to Blank's call and put that dude where he belongs with a much needed cast on his dirty knee

I think he's a great player. I've watched him since his UT days. He's a beast. I was pissed when Saints drafted him tho!

That's because our players don't respect Ryan.

#fact

Gonzalez said Ryan wasn't elite yet. He could have very well just not commented. Any other player would have said their QB was elite whether or not in actuality they were - if asked the quesiton.

Worst part is Ryan said he'd slide again and agian if the same situation arose.

No I agree he is good, and I used to like him. I'm just angry that he has fallen prey to their corrupting ways. Rob Ryan may have replaced Williams, but the dirty tactics still live on.

yeah I thought that was ****** up too. If Harvey Dahl was out there he would have punched Vacarro in the face. **** I know I would have.

I think the O-line was trying to send a message to Ryan. Sometimes o-linemen do that if they feel the QB rubbed them the wrong way.

I've been mad bout that all year, to start the season with your hated rivals, and to let a punk rookie do that with no payback is pitiful, it set the tone of this O-line for the whole year.

That hit may have caused Ryan to slide in the rematch game. Vacarro was in his head.
