Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson shipped boxes of shirts featuring the “Mad Chad” character from his iPhone app to Falcons cornerbacks Brent Grimes, Dunta Robinson and Chris Owens and safeties William Moore and Thomas DeCoud.
In 2004, he sent Pepto-Bismol to the Cleveland Browns — insisting they would be sick to their stomachs trying to cover him and last year, Chad sent gift baskets of deodorant to the Baltimore Ravens, so they didn’t sweat the matchup.
The significance of the t-shirts? I have no idea, but I’m sure Chad will come up with something before Sunday…. (source)
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan threw for 187 yards and a go-ahead touchdown, while Kory Biermann returned an interception for a score late in the fourth quarter to seal Atlanta’s 20-10 victory over Cleveland.
Ryan completed 16-of-28 passes, including a 45-yard touchdown to Roddy White, to help the Falcons win their fourth consecutive game.
It is Atlanta’s longest winning streak since 2004. White finished with five receptions for 101 yards, while Michael Turner added 140 yards on 19 carries as the Falcons got their first win over the Browns since 1993.
Spotted tailgating at the Atlanta Falcons game yesterday was a gentleman in “all polyester everything”. Now as hot as it’s been in the “A” recently, he’s got to be either one helluva Falcon’s fan or one helluva fool…
Whatever the case, the Falcons won 41 to 7 against the Arizona Cardinals, in what can only be described as an A-town “A”zz whoopin.
I credit Mr. Murry’s suit for the win…
Get you some… suckas!
Perhaps if more of you ATLiens took as much pride in your team as Mr. Murray, we’d win a lot more games. Therefore, in the near future I expect to see all of you rockin your ruby red polyester to all home games…. *giggle*
Darnell Dockett of the Arizona Cardinals is dedicating this Sunday’s Falcons home game to his slain mother.
According to the AP, Dockett, an Atlanta native, returned to his Decatur, Ga., home that day to find his mother shot to death in the head, a crime that never has been solved. He went to live with his father, who died a few months later of pancreatic cancer. An uncle is credited with saving him, helping him avoid a life of drugs and crime on the street.
Every time I go into that city, even when I was in college (for Florida State) at Georgia Tech, when I went to Atlanta it was a big thing for me to do well in those games. … That’s where my life really started, there’s so much tragedy there.”
