Dr. Quinn’s Offseason Prescription Plan

By Kirk Whitmire

Thomas Dimitroff sits patiently in the conference room awaiting Dan Quinn’s return. The burnt smell of O-Zone emanates from the projector above him. He sips his kombucha tea and stretches his legs. He had just seen the film himself. The X-Ray of the 2017 performance.

Trust.” He said with a sigh, “I have to trust the process.” Continue reading

After Falcons’ Seattle Win, the Buc Stops Here

By Mike Lederle

The Atlanta Falcons were able to put a stop to the Seahawks and Russell Wilson’s undefeated streak on Monday Night Football with a 34-31 road victory this week.
