FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons know they have
all the necessary ingredients: the hotshot young quarterback, the
go-to running back, a receiver who puts up big numbers and a Hall
of Famer-to-be at tight end.
So far, it hasn't added up to much.
The Falcons' first-team offense produced one touchdown in 13
possessions during the preseason. It went 0-for-13 in the season
opener against Pittsburgh, a 15-9 overtime loss that puts plenty of
pressure on Atlanta (0-1) heading into Sunday's home opener against
Not exactly what was expected from a team that has Matt Ryan,
Michael Turner, Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez.
