We've caught listmania from the rest of the NFL and we are counting down the best Atlanta Falcons on the 2012 roster. So far we've featured Tyson Clabo (#10), Michael Turner (#9), Asante Samuel (#8) and Tony Gonzalez (#7). Now it's time to talk about the man who received the franchise tag this year. Grimes shows off his vertical against the Panthers   Brent Grimes is a great success story. He was undrafted out of Shippensburg University in 2006 and worked his way into a Pro Bowl berth in 2010. Grimes really developed into a play-maker in 2009 and from 2009 to 2010 he had 11 interceptions. Despite being banged up last year, Grimes still places highly on our list as he looks to help the Falcons, along with Asante Samuel, William Moore, Thomas DeCoud and Dunta Robinson, take their secondary to the next level in 2012. Here is what the guys had to say about Grimey: Eric: The best pure athlete on defense. Speed, leaping ability, and fearless in the face of men he's ...

Samuel makes big impression in Falcons OTAs

Asante Samuel was impossible to ignore during the Atlanta Falcons' first full-squad practice this offseason on Tuesday. Atlanta's new No. 22 showed he likes to talk, pose and make plays. ''Can I get some action out here?'' Samuel called out on the field during the practice as he became impatient for a pass to be thrown in his direction. ''Am I out...

Is Kim Zolciak “So Damn Sexy” In A Body Painted Jersey?

Ok, so I’ll admit I’ve watched some of Bravo’s Real Housewives shows.  Mostly the New Jersey one because I like watching people fight over “respect” and “family” over and over…and over…and over again. So I was pleasantly surprised to see the pictures of Kim Zolciak, who is a cast member on Real Housewives on Atlanta, doing a body paint photo shoot for her new...

2012 key player: Michael Turner

It’s not a secret that I don’t think too highly of Michael Turner’s future with the Falcons. All off-season long, I’ve advocated that I think the team will be better off without him than with him. But it’s clear at this point that the Falcons brass disagree with me. And because of that, Turner’s production in 2012 will be a key to the team’s success. Turner’s production...
