With Jones out, are Falcons done?
The hits just keep coming for the Atlanta Falcons. Two days after losing at home to the New York Jets, the worries about receiver Julio Jones' health were confirmed; the Pro Bowler will miss the rest of the season with a foot injury. Suddenly, these Super Bowl-contending birds are 1-4, missing one top WR and about to lose another one for at least a little time. Should the Falcons backtrack on their Tony Gonzalez stance and pack it in for the year?
Commentators seem fond of pointing out how much fun Brett Favre appears to be having when he's on the football field, but for SportsNation's money, no quarterback is more fun to watch than Drew Brees. Lucky for you, he's on ESPN tonight against Matt Ryan's Falcons. But if we're closing in on midnight ET and the Saints and Yankees are both looking to pull out wins, who would you sooner trust with the ball?
I'm a diehard falcons fan always will be but realistically speaking I don't see us winning this game by any stretch of my imagination.....at least after this game we have the redskins to beat up on” -- georgehenries
