Revisiting the uncool episodes of my childhood sucks, but for the sake of this article, I rummaged through the Moments that Made Me Who I am Today Box to recall that spine-chilling evening in 1995.I lasted six minutes watching the season premiere of Goosebumps: The Haunted Mask. This disturbing scene, in which the main character dons on an evil mask then proceeds to scream for help when it won’t come off, impelled me to sprint upstairs with tears streaming down my cheeks. I’ve despised the horror genre ever since. (Thanks, R.L. Stine.)A fear just as terrifying commences after the 12 Most Wanted (number may vary) is selected. The second round of the fantasy football draft is equally as frightening for us fantasy geeks who don't know which player to pick. For us scaredy-cats, allow Julio Jones to be our Snuggie this season.Prepare or Beware:What keeps defensive coordinators up all night -- the Falcons' offense! Nightmares consist of their offensive unit breaking out of the hud...

ONE MAN'S OPINION
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White tweeted some inflammatory thoughts on the George Zimmerman verdict.
The Falcons are coming off a 13-3 season that ended in the NFC Championship game where they squandered a 17-0 lead in the second half to the San Francisco 49ers. The last time the Falcons came off a 13-3 season, the result was a 2-3 start with an ultimate finish of 10-6 as an NFC Wild Card. The Falcons were once again bounced from the postseason, losing in the first round of playoffs...
The Falcons released team sack leader John Abraham, and replaced him at defensive end with two time Super Bowl Champion, Osi Umnenyiora. Abraham put together another great season last year with 10 sacks, and six forced fumbles despite a supporting cast that didn’t offer much support in helping him attack the quarterback.
Abraham was undisputedly the best player on the defensive...
After last night’s not guilty verdict in the Trayvon Martin case down in Florida, Falcons wide receiver Roddy White tweeted that the jury should go home and kill themselves.
Roughly 12 hours later, White apologized by posting the tweet below.
I understand my tweet last nite was extreme. I never meant for the people to do that. I was shocked and upset about the verdict. I am sorry...
When a team goes 13-3 and is mere yards away from a victory carrying
them to a Super Bowl, the areas that need improvement are much more
specific than on a losing squad. That said, there are some areas of
weakness even on the record-setting squad the Atlanta Falcons fielded in
2012, and with that, there are some players that need to step it up and
bring their A-Game in 2013 to carry this
Last night the United States' legal system sent shockwaves across the country when George Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges arising from the death of Travon Martin. Naturally, there were plenty of angry tweets. Falcons receiver Roddy White was among those outraged that took to Twitter.
******* Zimmerman got away with murder today wow what kind of world do we live...
Similar to Victor Cruz, Roddy White had an opinion on George Zimmerman being found innocent of the murder of Trayvon Martin.
Unlike Cruz, White was a little more graphic in what he wanted to happen.
I am going to assume he was speaking figuratively not literally, but it shows you the anger about the verdict has reached everybody including athletes.
Though Twitter is usually slow on a Saturday night in the middle of July, the George Zimmerman “not guilty” verdict drew the world to social media.
NFL players, in the final two weeks of their summer vacation before training camp starts, seemed to send out the most controversial tweets reacting to the verdict. Victor Cruz and Tyrann Mathieu sent out tweets that they would later...
Three pretty prominent NFL players made some controversial tweets about the George Zimmerman trial and then went on to delete those tweets afterwards. Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has been known for his controversial tweets, and Saturday night was no exception as he suggested the jurors kill themselves.
Someone obviously told Roddy to clean up his Twitter feed because...
