Bobby Petrino Blames Players
Bobby Petrino was quick to point out where the problems in the Atlanta Falcons were. Apparently Joey Harrington holding the ball too long is the cause for the Falcon woes this year. The team is off to a horrid 0-2 start and have only managed to get 1 touchdown on the year. They say you get more bees with honey and I’m not sure if Petrino is laying out any honey.
I do see some things that Joey Harrington can do better, but I also see about 52 other players on this team that could use some touch-ups too. It’s nice to see receivers catching the ball in Atlanta and that wasn’t always the case with Michael Vick in control. He liked the tight end in Alge Crumpler, but finding a receiver that had more than 1 catch in a Falcon’s game was pretty much non-existent in Vick’s era. So let’s give Joey some credit and not all the blame.
The Falcons have acquired Byron Leftwich this week and will add some depth at quarterback for the Falcons. Now if you’re keeping track at home, the Falcon’s now have Warrick Dunn, Joey Harrington, Byron Leftwich, and Joe Horn all on their offensive attack. All of these players were playing on other NFL teams and those teams didn’t think they were worth keeping around. You have to put a strategy like this into play, when your GM Rich McKay isn’t the sharpest GM on draft day. His poor drafting has led the Falcons to take other team’s garbarge because he can’t get solid NFL players to the ATL.
There is plenty of blame to go around. It might be helpful for the coaches and owner to take some of it their self and quit trying to dish it out onto other people. The Falcons problems are not correctable and the team needs to rebuild from the ground up. The sooner they realize this, will be the sooner the good folks in Georgia can root on a winning pro football team. I have the Falcon’s picked to win 1 road game this year and to win 4 at home. That’s a 5 win season, but realisticly I might just be too much of a fan and this team might win fewer games than that. I also might try taking my own advice and quit blaming the lousy coach and GM and look what I as a fan can do for my team. So maybe I need to hold that rabbit’s foot on Sundays the whole game, instead of just having it by my bag of tater chips!Click here for reuse options!
