  1. Can the Falcons be the best offensive team in the NFL this season?


    What happened to last yrs ferrari offense? I’m a Saints fan and I hate the Falcons but this has been the story coming out of Atlanta ever since Matt Ryan got there. Best in the NFL? Do something real instead of hype before putting your name with the best. (Pats,GB,Saints)

  2. You gotta love Michael Bidwell, he has changed the Az Cardinals 100%.

    I guess thats what happens when your use to winning. As a federal prosecutor Mike Bidwell won 99% of his cases.


    p.s. I’m glad your father cant hold this franchise back anymore….

  3. Mr. Ross and Dee;
    Instead of gimmicks, new songs, new color schemes, celebrations etc. etc. etc. I have a novel idea. Win more games than you loose and make the playoffs. Then build upon that. Problem solved.

  4. I hope the dolphins celebrate the ’72 team during the Patriots game. can show some highlights of them losing their perfect season to the Giants in the Super Bowl.
