Sorry for the sparse updates last week. Business travel, more work stuff, and some family time equaled no time for updates. Actually on the plane to San Antonio I put in some time with Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection for the PSP. This one or The Gottlieb Collection are mainstays for my PSP; pretty much nothing else these days. I always take a bagful of PSP games on the plane, but usually do not get to most of them.
I have put my Falcons season tickets to good use. I have been lucky enough to take my two oldest boys to the two home preseason games. Friday night was special because my oldest son turned 10. So we got a nice birthday game, tailgate, father son(s) throw around in the parking lot, a Falcons win, some beer, and other good stuff.
A week ago against the Colts, Matt Ryan looked shaky at best, going 8-16, 62 yards, and 1 really bad looking interception. Last Friday night against the Titans, Ryan look fairly comfortable. While Ryan missed a couple of reads that could have resulted in TDs (over throws), Ryan was 15-21, 102 yards, 1 TD, and 0 INTs. Most Falcons fans missed Ryan’s debut as a starter, even if it was still the preseason; no way there was more than 30K at the Dome.
Matt Ryan – starting QB
It was nice to see Ryan get plenty of cheers when the offense was introduced. The end result? Ryan is now “officially” our starting QB. The Vick era can be officially dead and buried.
I sound be back to a regular rotation this week. Good gaming!
