Week 16: Atlanta @ New Orleans: A funeral with music

Ed Wyatt calls for a “jazz funeral” for the New Orleans Saints, who instead of dancing into the playoffs, bumbled and stumbled their way out of the NFL post-season.

About Ed Wyatt

Ed Wyatt grew up in Halfway, Maryland, following the Baltimore Colts like his football coach father. When he lost his Bert Jones #7 jersey at the Lincolnshire Elementary School playground, he should have taken it as an omen, since the Colts left Baltimore for Indianapolis. Ed has managed to avoid full time work by talking on the radio, smiling on the television and tapping on the keyboard of his computer. He won a number of local Emmy awards with the Seattle-based comedy show Almost Live! and hosted the Super Bowl live on Australian television for nine years. He is a graduate of Stanford University.

Week 11 – Atlanta @ Carolina: Cue the playoff controversy

After Atlanta’s ugly win over Carolina, Ed Wyatt writes that the 4-6 Falcons are now tied with 4-6 New Orleans atop the NFC South, a situation that may help force the NFL to change its rules about which teams host playoff games.

Week 5 – Atlanta @ NY Giants: Becks steals the show

It takes a big man to admit he was wrong and Giants’ fan Cody Royle does just that after his Week 1 criticism of Big Blue. He’s thrilled with the team’s new offense and its three game winning streak.

Week 4 – Atlanta @ Minnesota: Teddy arrives

Tony Reed thought the Falcons could win one on the road, but the Minnesota Vikings, led by rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and third-year man Matt Asiata, had other ideas.
