Falcons Shouldn’t Take Their “Foot Off The Gas”

December 26th, 2012

Will the Falcons rest their starters against the Bucs on Sunday?

Longtime Redskins general manager Charley Casserly, now an analyst on NFL Network, talks about why he believes the Falcons will not and should not go easy on the Bucs, via the WDAE-AM 620 audio below. Casserly gives a historical perspective on the final-game approach when your team has clinched home field through the playoffs as the Falcons have.

Casserly also weighs in on Josh Freeman and lauds Greg Schiano and Mark Dominik for their work this season.

    I hope they don’t take it easy on the Bucs. These Bucs don’t deserve a gimme win like that. They should have to earn it or go home with the six-game losing streak they deserve.

    I agree the Falcons should keep it going, especially given their recent playoff history. I actually hope they win it all.

    Do they need to keep their foot on the gas to beat the bucs?

    Actually they could slam on the brakes, pull the emergency brake, jam the transmission into park, hit a tree and go tumbling into a ravine and still beat the Bucs.
