Falcons leaving early, "hope we can land"

With the Bears leaving too late on Friday to beat a major snow event at which our readers in Northern Canada scoff while wrasslin’ with their bare hands a more representative member of the Ursus genus (Dennis Miller gave us that one), another team will be flying into the teeth of the storm, too.

The Falcons play in New York on Sunday.

Per a team source, the Falcons plan to leave Atlanta “a few hours early.”

“I hope we can land,” the source said.

Stay tuned.

    Compare snowfall in Toronto with that of Buffalo/Rocheste, NY.
    There is no comparison- they get up 200 inches of snow a year on the New York side of Lake Ontario, about 4 times or more than they usually get in Toronto per year.
    Those snowstorms in the northeast USA are bigger than those in much of Canada.

    How low has this site dropped that people are dropping weather facts? Time to put down the burrito and go outside Bob.

    Up in a plane is the highest Jonathan Babineaux has been in a few days.
    So RB Jason Snelling will play for Michael Turner while Matt Ryan will sit in lieu of QB Chris Redman (most likely). The Redman had a good day passing against those Saints and yadda yadda yadda last week but Snelling was stymied for under 40 yards rushing. The defense for the Falcons though can’t stop any QB from doing what they want. AAAAAAAWWWWWWWWwwwwwwwww…..

    LOL @ FavreForVicodin. That said, let’s give Bob S a break since most of us here in the Northeast are already suffering cabin fever.

    Atlanta shuts down for 3 days during the “blizzard of 92!” The northeast slowed down for 3 hours for the same storm. BUT Atlanta got 8 inches, Northern NJ got 18.
    Schools are closed for forecasts of flurries. School is delayed because its too cold at the bus stops (the logic of having your kid wear a coat escapes them.)
    Bosses are swarmed with calls from employees stating the cant make it in when a dusting of snow covers the front lawn.
    The local news proclaims seemingly every cold front as “Winter Storm YYYY”
    The source must be a life time Atlanta resident.
    The snow will be handled, the planes will land, the teams will arrive on schedule and the games will be played without a hint of real issue.

    Landings are mandatory. Takeoffs are optional.
