NFC South programming notes

Posted by ESPN.com’s Pat Yasinskas

A few programming notes as we wait for Thursday’s practices and interview sessions to provide a fresh round of news around the NFC South.

I’ll be talking with Atlanta coach Mike Smith on the phone this afternoon for a column I’m doing on the Falcons for Friday. Can’t reveal the topic here, but I do also plan to ask him why the Falcons rarely were using the no-huddle offense and the shotgun formation before turning to both and having success with them against the Bears.

Stay tuned for an exact time for tonight’s NFC South segment of Blogger’s Blitz. As soon as I get the time from ESPNEWS, I’ll post an alert.

The weekly NFC South chat is scheduled for Friday at 1 p.m. ET. Here’s the link.

I’m scheduled to cover the Falcons at Cowboys on Sunday and very much looking forward to seeing the Cowboys’ new stadium for the first time.
