      Hey, gt - my wife and I are big football fans - both college (being from Texas one has to be) and NFL. My favorites are Texas and Texas A&M on the collegiate side and the Cowboys (of course) who had their summer camp here at the Alamodome.

      Hi Jay, same here, I enjoy both college and pro. Georgia Bulldog fan here and to a lesser extent, I'm also a Georgia Tech fan as well. What I really like about the Bulldogs is that each year, we seem to be playing a team out of the SEC. Two years ago, we played Boise State, last year, I think it was Colorado, and this year, our first game will be against one of your rivals...Oklahoma State.

      Some of my Georgia buddies don't wanna see this game take place, they think we'll get our butts kicked, but I welcome the challenge. I wanna see what my team is made of right out of the gate. That way, I know whether or not I can hold my head high, talk my trash, or just humbly bow out of any conversation about college football.
      Stay thirsty my friends.

      You never can tell, gt - there are always upsets in any game. Your game against the Cowboys might just be one of them.

      Jay, I felt the same way 2 years ago when we had to play Boise State. Everybody was bragging about that high powered offense that they had and I was like, oh heck, we ain't got no business playing those guys and look what happened. We annihilated them. Me personally, and I know others will disagree with me here, but IMO, the SEC is the toughest conference to be in. I mean, just look at the teams that are here. Florida (national champs) Tennessee, LSU, Auburn, South Carolina (with the ol' ball coach) and of course my Georgia Bulldogs. So now I no longer dread those games because I think we're as good as any other team out there and I can't wait for that game.

      Well, for us Falcon fans, things just keep going from bad to worse. Vick has his problems so there goes our starting QB, now I guess I'll hafta support Harrington and now Shockley is out for the year so as far as I know, we only have 2 QB's to start the season with. Maybe I'll just stick with college football for one year.

      If Harrington does what he did when he was a Lion you guys are in big trouble. As a Viking fan we always looked forward to playing the Lions when he was the QB.

      Come to think of it we look forward to playing the Falcons cause he is now your QB!!! hehehehe!! We shall see on Sept. 9th.......

      Yeah, for some reason a running QB has always given the Vikes a hard time. I remember a game against the 49er's when Steve Young played for them and they had him almost sacked liked 3 times and almost tackled like 5 times and he made it to the endzone after runnign 70 yards, maybe more!!

      Its too bad about Vick, but hey, you have that much money and you are that stupid. You deserve to be caught, convicted and put it jail. What a idiot. I feel worse for the Falcon fans, the owner and Roger Goodell because he lied to all of them at first. Now you guys get to pick up the pieces and what's worse is I guarantee he will be back in the NFL within 2 years.

      Not to mess with you Viper, but perhaps the best game I have ever seen was the championship game between the Falcons and the Vikings. Now that was a nail biter all the way through. If anyone had told me that we would win that game with all the firepower you guys had, I would have just laughed. I think I cussed my Falcons to win in that game!!!!:tooth: Yup, had to clean out my mouth after that game.

    • Re: Any football fans here?

      Aww man you had to bring that game up!!

      That was a game that the team didn't lose, it was Denny Green, the coach who lost that one.

      That moron had the guys playing loose all year and just airing the ball out every game then he gets to the championship game and does the direct opposite from what got the team there. That was the beginning of the end for him. What sealed Denny's fate was the 41-0 drubbing by the Giants in the playoffs a couple years later.

    • Re: Any football fans here?

      I happen to agree with you. Cris Carter, Randy Moss, Jake Reed. Cunningham had his choice of receivers to go to and I also thought that Green played it just a bit too conservative, but if Gary Anderson hadn't missed that field goal at the end of the game (he had not missed one all year if my memory serves me correct) you guys would have faced the Broncos. BTW, you think your team could've beat that Bronco team?
      Stay thirsty my friends.
    • Re: Any football fans here?

      Yes you were correct about Anderson's miss. I guess he choked, but it should have never got to that point. Green should have been calling the big play all afternoon.

      And no, I don't think it would have mattered who played them, Denver would have won. Elway was a man on a mission.
