    Good move to the Falcons. Will meet the Saints twice a year. I wonder if it would be the same kind of welcome as when Randy Moss played the Vikings. The fans congratulated him and were happy.

    Horn made Vicks cousin look like a probowler.

    Vick is a probowler.

    I see good things happening in Atlanta.

    IMHO, Joe Horn is another one of those guys you're better off not betting against.

    I think Horn is a better receiver than Lelie, nothing against Lelie he got talent, it will be interesting to see how Vick will do, will he finally break the 3,000 yards barrier next season?

    If you want to be an all-pro receiver, ATL is not the place you want to be...

    he'd only be sticking it to the Saints if he was able to do anything. but his QB is michael vick, so....no.

    Like I said, he made Aaron Brooks look like a ProBowler... He'll be fine with Vick.

    Horn is so much more than just a WR. He's the guy that makes everyone around him want to play better. He's a real leader at the WR position, and he'll get the best out of everybody on the field.

    He's the WR version of Vince Young.

    ..when he's on the field himself. He's played one full season in the last 4 years. Personally I think 4 years 19 million is way too long and way too much.

    aaron brooks never looked like a pro bowler. brooks just had a few good years, thanks to horn, as well as the other quality receivers and the good running game. he also sucked a lot with horn.

    there's no comparisons at all to vince young.

    I could have sworn he was a PRoBowl Aternate one year.

    Most proBowl QBs can thank a probowl reciever and a potent running game.

    & I did make the comparison.

    It doesn't matter what reciever goes to Atlanta, until Shaub takes over, they will underachieve.

    Horn doesn't seem to be the same WR he was in past years. I think he's better than anything ATL which isn't saying alot honestly.

    Maybe he can teach the young wr's in ATL a thing or two or three. Of course it might help if he shows Vick how to throw a touch pass as well. Yea I'm not sure how much this is goin to help.

    The Falcons could have Calvin Johnson, Andre Johnson, Chad Johnson, and Don Johnson and they still would be a below average passing offense because of Vick. :neener:
