RE: Horn is a Falcon

After 5 years trying to catch errant passes from noodle-arm Brooks he should be fine trying to track down passes 10 yards off from Vick. He may make Vick look like a better QB than he is. If he stays healthy it's a good move by Atlanta. I hope he does well versus his other opponents.

RE: Horn is a Falcon

I wish him the best, he won't be much of a factor though because of Vick..
The NFL is a business, same goes for the players, they come and go due to FA.
I can't and won't say anything negitive towards Horn just because he's not a Saints anymore, he gave the team and fans of the Saints a lot of good years, it was fun watching him play for the Saints..

It is a business, but Horn didn't ttreat this whole thing as a business.
1.- He wouldn't have beaten Colston for #1
2.- Maybe even fallen to #3, behind Colston and Reggie - although Reggie mostly catches screens.
2.- He failed his physical.
With those mitigating factors, the Saints still offered him a spot, but with a pay cut, obviously
Instead of seeing it like a business, Horn was the one who asked to be released and bit his nose to spite his face going to Atlanta. If you are going to treat it like a business, then do so. Go out there and see how much you can get, not just go directly to Atlanta and nowhere else to "stick it" to the Saints in his feeble lil' mind, and on your way out, bad-mouthing the organization, and lauding yourself as the key to keeping the Saints in New Orleans.

Personally, I don't thiink Horn is going to break the Falcons, nor the Saints.
Hope he enjoys a couple of chicken dances at the Dome on his way to a 4-12 season with Vick's team.

Um...if Atlanta is going to pay him the money he wants and make him the #1 guy, then by your logic above wouldn't he have incentive to go there? Seriously, if this guy isn't even good enough to be our #2 option, then shouldn't you be glad he's the #1 guy on a divisional rival?

Logic aside, Joe gave his best to the Saints and once the Saints passed him by, he went elsewhere. When he retires, he'll be a Saint again in my eyes. Good luck to him for 14 games a year, thanks for the memories and I hope that Fujita dosen't hurt him too bad on that first crossing route in the Dome.
