    1st piece of bad news for this one comes out today. A.J. Klein placed on IR. Not good. We're in the playoffs with a win, division champs with a win and Carolina loss, but the defense noticeably misses Klein.

    if the refs don't fuck us like in the first shitty bird game, this won't be close... that game had some of the worse officiating i've seen in a long time and i've see all the recent lsu v bama games... 11 penalties saints to 4 for the pigeons... 8 of 11 led to 1st downs... one took 3 off the board when even the announcers admitted that that usually draws a warning and not a flag... who dat!!!

    We are really hurting at tight end. Hill is the only one who practiced today, and he was limited. The good news is, Julio Jones didn't practice today either. The phuckin phalcons list him with both ankle and thumb injuries.

    lattimore should lock julio down anyway... we have to stop the run first and hope to get pressure on matty melt... if the refs don't let them hold like last time, that shouldn't be a problem... cam jordan should've had 4 or 5 sacks last game by himself... dude was getting mauled by their line...

    Lattimore needs to aim for Julio's bad ankle.

    Heard one of the talking heads say last night that Fleener going on IR after week 10 with a concussion is probably a sign he won't be back next year. I'll guess we'll be in the market next year. Also desparately need to upgrade at WR; huge dropoff after Can'tGuardMike.
