The Falcons are in a great position right now, as they are atop in the NFC South and are in control of their own destiny at this point. Atlanta has gotten some great contributions from its ground game, as it ranks No. 2 in the NFL at 148.8 yards per game. Both RB Michael Turner and RB Jason Snelling have been great this year, as the two have combined for 665 yards and three TDs this year. However, it is WR Roddy White that has really made the offense go. He has a number of receptions of at least 25 yards this year, and he has totaled 463 yards and three scores on a team high 37 receptions. Needless to say, QB Matt Ryan has played well, completing 61.6 percent of his passes for 1,165 yards with seven scores and three picks. The secondary is still shoddy in spite of the fact that DB Dunta Robinson is in the fold now, but allowing 223.4 yards per game isn’t acceptable. Still, there’s only one team that has scored more than 15 points against Atlanta this year, something that the team doesn’t want to change any time soon.

Without Vick in the fold, it’ll be up to QB Kevin Kolb once again to make things work for the Philly offense. Kolb has thrown for 478 yards and two scores against just one pick, and though those numbers are reasonable, he just isn’t forcing the ball up the field the way that Vick did. Needless to say, this offense just isn’t as efficient right now with No. 7 out of the lineup. RB LeSean McCoy is averaging 5.4 yards per carry this year, which might be a fantastic average, but it isn’t necessarily leading to a dominating ground game. Twenty seven points were dropped on the board last week against the San Francisco 49ers, but that was the only truly efficient game that Kolb has had offensively this year in his starts. The defense is giving up 124.0 yards per game on the ground, something that the Falcons have to be licking their chops at. Three of the five foes this year have scored at least 24 points against this defense, and the only truly remarkable game was a 28-3 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3.

The Eagles are in a lot of trouble without Vick in the lineup. This Atlanta team is probably significantly better than the Niners, and even though the game is coming at home, we tend to believe that this is going to be a relatively disastrous game where the fans in the City of Brotherly Love are going to get very, very restless.

The reality behind Mr Blair’s bold words.(Column)

Daily Mail (London) December 9, 2006 ROBUST in his language, firm in his warning that minority groups – particularly Muslims – must respect our heritage, Mr Blair strikes a chord with his insistence that Britain is ‘not going to be taken for a ride’.

But compare his words with the reality exposed in the Mail this week of a political and judicial system that has abjectly surrendered control of our borders, pays no heed to the public interest and has totally lost touch with common sense.

Underthe headline ‘Travesty’, werevealed how a Somali asylum seeker who raped a 13-year-old girl at knifepoint and still poses a threat to women is now to be rewarded with [pounds sterling]50,000 of taxpayers’ money.

Every aspect of this case insults justice.

The Somali – whose anonymity is conveniently protected by law – came here illegally on a fake Kenyan passport. But who cares about such niceties nowadays? go to website blocked games at school

Not our immigration authorities, certainly.

Despite breaking the law he was allowed to remain, which gave him the opportunity to attack his victim. Jailed for eight years, he should have been deported as soon as his sentence was served.

But this is Britain, where the rights of criminals always come first. He resisted every attempt to send him back and, as usual in such cases, was allowed to get away with it. Yet he couldn’t be freed here because of fears that he would seek out his victim again or attack other women.

Now for the final twist. Though this childmolesting thug chose to stay in jail instead of going home, that didn’t stop him suing for wrongful imprisonment, (on legal aid, naturally). So the courts compensate him at our expense.

Behind Mr Blair’s powerful words, we see a litany of failure: a Government that massages asylum figures to hide its own incompetence. . . immigration officials who just can’t cope . . . judges who seem to be living on another planet… a compensation culture that affronts all moral principle. . .

This is just one cameo of a system in chaos.

How many others must there be before the politicians start to take a grip?

Children betrayed SO now we are reduced to the counsels of despair on how to address the problems of fat, unfit, couch-potato Britain.

Undernewguidelines tobepublished next week, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellent proposes that overweight children should be prescribed anti-obesity drugs, though they are at present licenced only for adult use.

Even more controversially, NICE will authorise major surgery such as stomachstapling for grossly overweight teenagers, despite the expense and potential risks.

There could hardly be a sadder reflection on what has become of childhood.

Time was when real obesity was relatively rare, because children walked to school, played in the street and took part in competitive sports. Today they travel by car, slump in front of computers and don’t take enough exercise to work off the effect of all those sweets and fizzy drinks. this web site blocked games at school

But why blame them? Most 15 and 16-yearolds don’t play team games at school, because their teachers disapprove of competition. Meanwhile some 2,540 playing fields have disappeared since 1997, despite Labour’s promises to save them.

Is it really surprising that obesity rates are soaring? Or that some overweight children are so desperately unhappy that drugs and surgery seem the only solution?

Bah, humbug!

NO manger. No wise men. No star of Bethlehem. Today we report that only one in 100 Christmas cards contains any reference at all to the real meaning of this great Christian celebration.

What can we say? We can only – somewhat wryly – wish our readers a Merry December and a Happy January!
