Mandatory Monday: Hometown Hero

Despite the title, this is not a long "I knew Flacco when he was 15" piece; I just start with a bit about the excitement here in my corner of Camden County. Then, it is off to a frame-by-frame rundown of the Patriots during their line-up drill before halftime, and making fun of the Falcons. Enjoy!

I briefly misread the trailing double quote as "I knew Flacco when he was 15 inches."

Great piece as always, Mike, thanks.

Not to rain our your parade, but the Atlanta pass on the 3rd down rollout was going to Roddy White, not Harry Douglas.

Also, Turner was injured earlier in the second half, I think, so I believe the run play you reference was for Jacquizz Rodgers.
