I think a lot of people forget Matt Ryan played for BC so it is not like the kid is not used to playing in the cold.

Ryan is also from PA, so he grew up in the cold. You can't ignore the facts though, he is not as good away from the dome.

College is not the same as Pro
Defenses will make you pay if throws aren't as on target

Not our secondary lol

And yeah that's simple football 101 referring to the difference between college and pros, and the Birds coming to our place is a definite advantage rather than us at the Georgia Dome, but I just think some people or atleast certain ones I have talked to make a bigger deal about it than it really is.

Has Ryan ever played in the stadium? That's a good question if it is windy --- hope it is.

I am also interested to see how the big WR from Alabama does if it is cold. A good crack from a large player early on might be in order.

Looks like the Falcons played the jets in the old stadium in 2009. I don't think the Giants have played them in the new stadium.

I like #7.

A dome team that played 3 extra indoor road games, nice. Let's hope they look that way this week and that the forecast holds up! Low temp, wind and rain on tap.

If the weather is like last weekend we should be ready to kill two birds with one football(ryan and white) we are due to knock a QB out this year.

I didnt know tim lewis still coached in the pros. I thought for sure he was demoted back to high school football after being our D coordintor.
