Atlanta’s Michael Turner Not Living Up To His Contract

How do you rate the worth of each professional athlete? Is it simply the statistics they produce or does the money they make from merchandizing and everything else come into play? Regardless of the measurements, Michael Turner simply isn’t worth what the Falcons are paying him.



Rising And Falling Falcons

As the only undefeated team left in the NFL this season, Atlanta goes into its bye week with a full-head of steam. With Atlanta at 6-0, who are the players that are contributing the most and who isn’t performing up to expectations?



Falcon’s First Quarter Report Card

As only one of three teams to start the 2012 campaign out 4-0, the Atlanta Falcons are doing very well. Even though their record may currently be perfect, not all aspects of their game has been. This is a quick breakdown of Atlanta’s good, bad and ugly of their first 4 games.

Cam Newton Says Goodbye To Kitty, Still Falls Short To Falcons

Cam Newton may not be Superman, but he certainly put up a heroic effort against the Falcons. Amassing 300+ yards, Newton and the Panthers gave the Falcons everything they could handle leaving the game to be decided in the waning seconds.



Dirty Birds Quickly Becoming Jail Birds

Do football teams really need “bad citizens” to be successful in the league? With three straight wins to start the season and two straight weeks with a player arrested following the game, the Atlanta Falcons may unfortunately be proving that Allen Pinkett knew what he was talking about.



Michael Turner’s Fire Burns Bright For The Falcons

With the NFL depending more and more upon a passing game, it’s refreshing to come across a player who still has the old-school running back “Three yards and a cloud of dust” mentality. Fortunately for the Falcons, their running back Michael Turner exemplifies that state of mind.

Falcons Feel Right At Home In San Diego

While Atlanta has an impressive home record since Matt Ryan became its quarterback, the Falcons may be more comfortable at QUALCOMM Stadium. With Atlanta’s 27-3 beat-down of the San Diego Chargers, Atlanta improved its all-time record in San Diego to an impressive 6-0.

Falcons And Chargers Are Mirror Images Of Each Other

Just as the Falcons did on Monday Night Football game against Denver, Atlanta will be facing a very capable quarterback this week inSan Diego’s Philip Rivers. Both teams hope to leave QUALCOMM Stadium with a perfect 3-0 record.

Turner’s Arrest Biggest Topic During Smith’s Media Report

With the arrest of Turner, several questions about his availability arose. Smith didn’t give any clear response as to whether or not the Falcons plan on having Turner suit up for the San Diego game.
Simply put, Smith said “there are certain parameters that are set in place by the collective bargaining agreement which is between the NFL and the NFLPA. Those guidelines will be followed in terms of what we can and cannot do. If there is going to be any internal discipline, than that it will stay internal.”
