ATLANTA (AP) -- It took nearly 58 minutes for Michael Vick to break loose.Fortunately for the Atlanta Falcons, the defense showed up right from the start.
|Cardinals-Falcons: Should Green stick with King or go back to McCown? Coach Green should go back to McCown. He's a young quarterback going through the growing pains that all young QBs suffer through. Sunday, he played a defense that seemed to have his number and the situation got away from him, but I think it's too early to pull him. Before the season, Coach Green showed a lot of confidence in McCown. To pull him so early would totally erode McCown's confidence.The Cardinals should be applauded for the strides they've taken already this season. Last year, there was no way this team would've been in this game. But this season, they're fighting tooth and nail every game. This team has a lot of fight and aren't going to lay down this season.Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders. He's a regular contributor to Insider.|
The Falcons are 3-0 for only the third time in their 39-year history. They hope to do better than the other two teams in this position, which both finished with losing records. ... Arizona DT Ross Kolodziej sprained an ankle in the first half and didn't return. ... Atlanta has won five in a row going back to last season.
