Josh Freeman

The Great Radio Controversy

IF YOUR RADIO IS OUT, JUST SHOUT LIKE THIS!!
During the final drive of the Atlanta game, Josh Freeman looked toward the sideline and started tapping his helmet and raising his hands in the universal symbol for “I can’t hear what the fuck you’re saying.” We speculated on the chat that the coach-to-quarterback speaker system had gone out, and it turns out that’s exactly what happened.

“I think they made a mistake,” Morris said. “We’re in Atlanta and somehow our headsets went out in that play. We had to run out there and tell our quarterback and ran out of time. We had to use our timeout because we didn’t have enough time to get to the line of scrimmage and snap the play because our headsets were out.”

At that moment, huh? The most critical drive of the game, Tampa down inside the Atlanta red zone and about to take the lead with very little time left, somehow that’s the moment that the transmitter goes out. Oh, and the home team controls all communications for both sidelines. TOTAL COINCIDENCE. Nope, no shenanigans there. I’m not saying that that’s the reason why the Bucs lost — there were several of those — but it sure would have been nice to have that timeout that they had to burn so Raheem could challenge that spot if he had wanted to. What bullshit. I hope when the Falcons come to Tampa that the Bucs put live, rabid panthers infected with hepatitis in every visitor locker. Home field advantage is a bitch.

They weren’t known as the “Dirty Birds” for nothing.

And their fans.
And their owner, Vincent Price.

manbearpig, don’t disrespect Vincent Price like that.
I still remember Blank rolling Vick around in that wheelchair. He might as well of been blowing the guy right there.

Ever see that commercial the NFL has for their “Play60″ thingey with the Falcons on the bus on their way to a playground? It’s actually a cool commercial, with some kind of catchy music in it. The funny thing is, you see the players kind of bobbing their heads to the music, all in tune, then it switches to their owner and Arthur Blank is nowhere close to being in rhythm. White people.

Awesome. I totally agree. Those birds are fucktards. Fuck them!
