Does anyone here know if Darren Howard will be back for the Atlants game? How good do you think he will be after missing half the season?

To answer your first question, he should be back this week. To answer your second question, if he can stay healthy he\'ll be as good as ever I think. Maybe some rust but that will be gone after the first quarter.

Yeah, I\'m a little interested to see what is going to happen with our run defense. The good news is that we should be able to put all kinds of pressure on opposing QBs. Grant, Sullivan, Whitehead (will get moved back inside to DT), and Howard. Wow. That sounds good to me. Still, while those guys are fierce, I\'m not sure they\'re real run stuffers. We\'ll need Hodge/Smith, Ruff, and Rodgers to really step up.

Dunn scares me a lot next week. He\'s made a living playing the Saints. He torched us for 220 and a couple of scores in the second game last season (if I remember correctly), and he had 70 and a TD on one carry against us this year (although I don\'t know what his final numbers were). He ran for 180 and a touch today against the Giants. Yikes. Let\'s hope our front four can be as dominating as they should be.

It is just like the damn birds to start getting it together just in time to face us. Tweekys upset special sure is getting some legs after this weeks performance aginst the Giants. Yea, WhoDat we are going to have to bring it up front , the ground game is the game. Christ I don\'t want to lose to these guys!

Speaking of having guys back for the Atlanta game......What\'s the status of Stallworth?

Doesn\'t matter. If he comes back he\'ll break a big 60 yarder and then pull a calf this time around. I really believe that he has everything it takes to be the real deal in this league, but the scouts have been absolutely right about him so far in his career. He cannot stay healthy for a full season.
