it makes perfect sense. crumpler is getting older and coming off an injury-plagued season. as a fan of the league i want the falcons to get that "dirty bird" swagger back. getting some fresh faces and playmakers will make a big difference.

Leftwich tried out with the Orlando Mighty Mites today for the 3rd string Quarterback spot left open by the departure of little Johnny Bowman after he was removed from the team by his mom for bad grades. Leftwich, although tecnically too old for the 12 and under league , was granted an emergency waiver by the Orlando Pee-wee football organization.

What is Arthur Blank doing down there ? GOD DAMN !!!

That whole organization is falling apart. Getting rid of Crumpler, Coleman and Leftwich are going to be hurt pieces. Blank must be doing a major rebuild with his team or he's on something.

Now that Alge Crumpler got the axe from Atlanta i think the Buffalo Bills would be smart to bring him in and give him a look at cause they need a big tight end who can catch and block. Buffalo hasnt had a good TE since Pete Metzelars.

Leftwich is a hell of a quarterback but he does not move around well. He must have a line but if he does there are not many with a stronger arm. It is hard for any quarterback to throw from his back every snap. Atlanta is terrible and they won't be any better with a new quarterback. Try getting a line first
