Mike Smith after the win over Jacksonville 

By D. Orlando Ledbetter

Falcons coach Mike Smith was pleased with the play of quarterback T.J. Yates, but wasn’t looking forward to making the roster cuts.

C'mon you all played JACKSONVILLE!!!  I wouldn't count that because they were what? #32 last season and you all were #31?  They are a pitiful team.  The New Orleans Saints will wipe the GA Dome with the Fluncants on Sept. 7th!  Who Dat???

Still not sold on Yates. Jacksonville wasn't a test in my judgement.

Hope that the right decisions are made on who to let go.

First cut should be Peter Knoz #66. Dude is not an NFL lineman at any position as a starter nor backup. If teams kept 3rd string centers then maybe or 4th string guards.
