Bobby Petrino appreciates the Falcons hard work. Geez, thanks.

As if slipping out the back door just a day after coaching the Falcons in a Monday Night Football contest wasn’t pathetic enough for Bobby Petrino, the new Arkansas Razorbacks coach doesn’t even have the guts to talk to his old team like a man. Instead of facing his former squad to explain his sudden change of heart, possibly for fear of having snarling pit bulls released on him, Petrino decided to let his fingers do the talking and wrote his ex-players a letter that was posted in the locker room on Wednesday.

Atlanta Falcons players;

Out of my respect for you, I am letting you know, with a heavy heart, I resigned today as the Head Coach of the Atlanta Falcons. This decision was not easy but was made in the best interest of me and my family. While my desire would have been to finish out what has been a difficult season for us all, circumstances did not allow me to do so. I appreciate your hard work and wish the best.


Bobby Petrino”

The letter was hand signed.

Now that’s classy. Arkansas should be proud to have such a stand up guy leading their charge to the top of the SEC.

Unfortunately, while Michael Vick can be put in the slammer for his stupidity and cowardly behavior, Petrino gets a sweet office and a plump paycheck. Personally, we don’t know how the guy is going to live with himself after this act of gutless betrayal and his half-hearted, callous and insulting attempt at an apology. Guess he’ll be spending a lot of time with fellow Judas and notable NFL back stabber, conference colleague Nick Saban.

Falcons get the shaft from Bobby Petrino

The big news today revolves around Bobby Petrino’s controversial, middle of the night, bolt from Atlanta to Arkansas. While we could talk about just how embarrassing it is for the coach to stab his former team in the back before the season even concluded, it is so much easier to let Petrino’s press conference pig call do the humiliating for us.

Oh, and coach, don’t let DeAngelo Hall see you doing that on the street. He’s not a big fan of yours at the moment.

C’mon, DeAngelo; it’s nothing personal. His heart just wasn’t in the pros. If you’re going to criticize him for anything it should be because he simply loves the college kids too much. The fact that Atlanta is currently swirling around the NFL toilet bowl with a 3-10 record while constantly living out the Michael Vick saga on a day-to-day basis had absolutely nothing to do with the jump.

Joey Harrington is not gay, but his fans are

People having been calling Joey Harrington `gay’ for years now; not because of his sexual orientation, but because of his limp wrist release and a tendency to go down in flames. Well, the often ridiculed Harrington’s odyssey has landed him in Atlanta where he will have a chance to become the metrosexual face of a now faceless franchise. And according to, Harrington has a whole slew of new fans in Hotlanta that are more than willing to accept him into their backfield for years to come, if you know what we mean. (wink, wink) Here are a couple of their comments:

Mike Horton, a gay football fan in Atlanta who roots for the New England Patriots, says Harrington may change his perspective and prompt him to give the Falcons a second look: “It’s interesting what an extreme opposite Harrington is to our previous quarterback. I like the fact that he’s suave and polished, but boy, is he pretty. I think I might try to make a few more games this year.

Brian Johnson, a gay University of Georgia graduate who lives in Atlanta, is “primarily a college football fan – 99%,” but the “other 1% is saved for Joey Harrington and the Falcons. … “I’m a Falcons fan only because I was born and raised here,” he said. “But I wouldn’t say I get upset when they lose. Harrington is hot. He is much better looking than Michael Vick, much easier on the eyes and the dogs.

Uh, Mr. Johnson (if that is your real name), we really hope your talking about pit bulls and not making reference to the ol’ twig and berries (hey, callin’ `em “dogs” in our office is pretty tame). Not only would that be really disgusting, but we don’t think his new wife would like to hear about how Joey makes your dogs bark.
