  2. Falcons coach Mike Smith attributes DE John Abraham’s 2009 struggles to a porous Atlanta secondary.
    Stop using anything D. Orlando Whatever puts out for the AJC for these one-liners, it’s all garbage. There isn’t a quote from coach Mike Smith, he has previously several times stated the struggles of John Abraham were a result of the lack of pressure up the middle from the absence of 1st round pick DT Peria Jerry and no consistent pressure from the opposite side where Jamaal Anderson resides. So many QB’s last year had all day to throw, no secondary would be able to hold up that long. No more “D.” stuff, please.

  3. Talking about former Eagles on the Rams does not count as an Eagles article you sly dog

  4. “The Raiders have put themselves in the running for the team with the least cost-effective player in the history of football.”
    This is a quote from that Raiders article. For as terrible as JaMarcus Russell is, I think this particular title could go to someone else the Raiders employ. Javon Walker. He signed a 6 year, $55 million contract a couple of years ago and the Raiders have 15 catches to show for it.
    Regardless of how flat-out bad Russell is, the production they’ve received from Walker is much worse. Maybe they just ought to stay away from guys whose first names begin with “Ja”.

  5. Really, thats what you have for the 49ers? You already posted that article? Slow news day? Why not refer to the will james signing at least.
