Cardinals optimistic Sean Weatherspoon can practice on Tuesday

The beginning of Sean Weatherspoon's tenure in Arizona hasn't quite gone as planned. Weatherspoon signed a one-year deal in the offseason, but has essentially missed all of training camp and the preseason due to a hamstring injury he suffered the first day of camp.  The veteran linebacker could miss Week 1, if he is not able to recover and get back on the field, according to head...

I hate that Sean Weatherspoon will be lost for the season

Coming in to his contract year, Falcons fans were expecting Sean Weatherspoon to have a standout season. However, his torn Achilles came as a devastating blow to the Falcons’ defense. Many are skeptical at the Falcons’ ability to replace such a vocal player on this defense, and rightfully so. Sure, Spoon never really lived up to his potential, but it is hard to do that when you...

How do the Atlanta Falcons replace Sean Weatherspoon?

As much as it was a emotional blow for me, I can’t imagine the toll the news of Sean Weatherspoon’s season season ending injury took on his teammates. Spoon has been one of my favorite Falcons since he was drafted, but he has been the the vocal and emotional leader of the defense for the last few years. Losing his presence on the field and in the locker room is a massive blow...

Who are the top Free Agent Linebackers?

There is a lot of attention around Atlanta’s questionable Linebacker core. Outside of Sean Weatherspoon, there is nobody that screams “superstar”. Atlanta survived the season with two un-drafted rookies in the starting rotation. As surprising as Worrilow and Bartu’s play on the field was, the reality is that they did not help Atlanta win. They both can build on their rookie...

His three sacks, interception, and 70 tackles definitely make him a prolific linebacker in the NFL and definitely on his team, which explains why his long departure due to an injury cost the Falcons’ defense so much.  Akeem Dent was supposed to fill in for Weatherspoon, but also got hurt and left the coaches...
