PLAYERS: Corey Peters
TEAMS: Atlanta Falcons
Hear Falcons DT Corey Peters LIVE on "The Sports Craze" Atlanta Falcons defensive Tackle Corey Peters will be joining me on my BlogTalkRadio show, "The Sports Craze".  We'll be talking to Corey about the NFL documentary film "Late Rounders" which he is featured in. Late Rounders follows graduating college football players as they attempt to take the next step in their careers and make the 53-man roster on an NFL football team. Corey Peters was one of the featured players in this 2010 film. Peters played college football at Kentucky. While he only started in two games during his freshman year, he started 12 games as a sophomore. As a junior he stepped up and made 36 tackles, 10 of them for a loss,  and four quarterback sacks.   He continued his sucess in his senior year when he was named 2nd team All-SEC.

Have The Falcons Peaked Under Mike Smith?

I was browsing google "news" for the Atlanta Falcons and came across an interesting article from a website called ThePigskinReport.com.

Falcons still counting on tackle Baker

Why It’s So Hard to Humble a Guy Like Bobby Petrino

I might be the only Atlanta Falcons fan on earth that still has somewhat of a soft spot for Bobby Petrino. Yes, I think his cowardly ditch of the Falcons when Michael Vick was carted off to face dogfighting charges was epically wrong. But Petrino entertains me with his slick (slimy?) ways–even his press conferences can be things to remember. You know, the kinda things that get...

Bobby Petrino Gets What He Deserves

Up until last week's car crash, most people had forgotten about how Bobby Petrino left the Atlanta Falcons unceremoniously following just 13 games with the team back in 2007. The recent revelations that Petrino was having an illicit affair with a 25-year-old assistant caused every Falcons fan (like myself) to have the same reaction... "I'm not suprised, Petrino is...
