Atlanta Falcons adjusted roster gives hope

A pessimist might consider last minute roster moves to be merely putting lipstick on a pig. An optimist would say that that is a pretty good looking pig. The Falcons continue to work hard to fix the problems made evident in the preseason. The worst being the state of the offensive line. In a trade with the Tennessee Titans, the Atlanta Falcons picked up Andy Levitre. This appears...

Saints Offensive Player Grades vs. Falcons

This was a shocking performance by the offense. It was worse than expected beyond my wildest imaginations. Five sacks and four turnovers is all that really needs to be said. The Saints didn’t block, they didn’t really run the ball, they didn’t sustain drives and they didn’t take care of the football. Top to bottom it was a horrific offensive performance despite decent play...

Five things to look for in 49ers at Saints

The 4-4 49ers are coming to town to face the 4-4 Saints. Who saw that one coming? Don’t all speak up at once. In theory these are two teams much better than their record struggling to consistently play their best football.

But for now I’ll...
