Top three things about JSSN's posts below:

3)you need someone who speaks 'psych ward' to translate what he's talking about

2)it really doesn't matter who he's talking to or what you say,he's just gonna mimic back what was just said anyway

1)his anti Falcons rants were all the funnier considering no one was even talking about him in the first place...

Coach Tice did not impress me.  He's been unsuccessful at every stop that he's made in the NFL.  How he does he keep getting jobs?  Must have photos on someone in the NFL Offices.

I enjoyed the show and liked the fighting. It showed heart and attitude! Hopefully Coach Cox & Tice can get the guys to play with that intensity. I hope #45 makes it, I will watch the game this week and look for Smith and Starr and see if they can actually play. Same for Rhump/Cupcake. I was apprehensive going in thinking the team would be watching their P's & Q's. Glad to see them let their hair down. This isn't Miss Manner's it's freaking football. It's about Blood, Sweet & Beers.

Kane... You are right.  He did play at Tennessee.  My old age is beginning to show!

Who the HELL does Steven Jackson think he is? Moving Matt Ryan's gear out of a room Matt had already claimed. This isn't St.Louis in 2006. Jackson is not THE MAN. Hell, Jackson isn't even going to practice.

Jackson needs to put Ryan's gear back in his room, and Jackson needs to go find a motel. If you're not going to practice with the team, you don't need to be with the team.

Oh, and what was with that speech to the running backs? Jackson sounded like a mental patient.

I completely enjoyed the show. It was everything I hoped it would be. Best Falcon show since the Leaman Bennett days on Monday nights at 7:30.

Can't wait till Friday. I have a new tailgate setup and am ready to pregame. Let's go Falcons.....

I fell asleep on this show, but for the part I did see I will say this: It seemed staged and scripted. The only part that seemed genuine was Arthur Blank's comments.

I watched and enjoyed the show.  Definitely looking forward to next week. Not the "clown show" that was predicted by one of the 3 Blind Mice that cover the Falcons. I can't help but wonder if Marvin Lewis and the Bengals staff had to read the Bengals beat writer's tweets calling their Oklahoma drill "staged" immediately after the first show of last season?  No wonder we have such a great relationship between the Falcons and the local media.

@AnsweredTHIS Honestly, I was really bothered by Hawley being upset that a rookie upstaged him.....Why a rookie? Seriously, if he is that unhinged by a rookie, maybe it's time he finds a new vocation.

That Rookie was all in his head! Rookie has nothing to lose and he is going to try to do what he can do to make the team! I noticed that every time Hawley hit him, the rookie did not swing back ( smart, dont want to hurt soft A$$ Hawley and get cut for that).  The defense had to come to him and tell him to not let anyone swing on him! I like #45, can we find a spot for him on this team?

@AnsweredTHIS @SeenThatB4 I did fall asleep, for about 10 to 15 minutes in the middle of it, and  don't care what you believe. Yeah I'll watch next week, but I'll stand by what I said, yesterday,  it wasn't a riveting show.

And this won't be one of these running narratives, I mean it. You and that little pack think that show (I mean the attacks) are emboldening your position, it isn't. No more running off (like someone who needs to find a bathroom), you can continue trying to make it personal, I've seen it too long. I understand why you always have. Considering the reality (which the "Beat writer covers"), if I were so disheartened each Fall I'd attack the messengers too (if I wasn't grounded).

Talk football, if you can't, stop picking fights if you don't want to hear the opposing views!

"Gibberish talking fool."

Good self-analysis, keep it up and you'll finally get to your root issues! How's that go about the Falcons not being in the Top 3 in fudging on injuries go again?

Oh, that is how "mimicking back" actually works! Be careful, you make it easy!

@AnsweredTHIS @Rory_Bellows 

Yeah..  I was listening to the radio; and the commentators were discussing why he took those blows from Hawley.  Apparently coach Smith had just gotten on him (#45) for fighting in a previous drill, and he didnt want to get in more trouble with the head coach.  He showed a lot of restraint...  I couldnt have done that...  I would have wailed on Hawley.

I have watched Dled post three blogs over the last two hours and you have posted on all of them.


Are you that fudging lost that you post on these blogs to down the Falcons?  You got more than a screw loose man and you really don't add anything to the conversation.  You and the yo-yo who cant spell ( heck I don't know what to call him JoeMess, and all of his 30 plus names) have the same mother who was married to her brother in a brothel off of gutter ally ( that's Bourbon Street) in NO.

STB4 come on man why waste your time on something that  is not riveting (as you put it) ?  If it is not riveting why are you watching and wasting your time?  It is almost like why come troll on the ATL Falcons blog?  I just don't get it!

Stop lying troll…Of course you CARE what he believes, because this is your life’s work.

If you didn’t care what he believes, you would not have taken the time to come back to this site and respond to his post.Let alone tell him exactly how long you were sleeping….Oh yes…you definitely care what he believes…LOL.

@JSSN

Look child, you're the one on here always picking fights.  My issue is with you and those like you whose sole purpose is to come on here and convey anything negative about the Falcons, anything.  

Wrong? Tell us right here all the positives about the Falcons Organization...you'd need to be intoxicated to do this.

Cut and paste some quotes, any of your quotes, complimenting anything the Falcon management, coaching staff, or players.  You can't!  And the reason you can't is this childish, embittered, entrenched hate you have for the Atlanta Falcons for some stupid stuff that happened 7-8 freaking years ago.

So, I take it you're in your 50's; don't you think it's past time to grow the f up?

You really like to gravy train! No shame in it, unless they have as miserable record as the Smith era Falcons in the post-season in their picks! See ya clown! Nope, I like just being in my own skin, it works just fine! Go and see more ghosts and create some fantasies to get your little mind working!
