    ...I just wanted to give a big congrats to former Bolt, Turner the Burner. He sure had a nice coming out party in front of his home crowd. I'm very happy for him.

    Now that i think about it, I'm scared as hell at the thought of MT running against our front 7. he may break AP's rushing record. :icon_eek:

    He seems to have been bit of a fantasy sleeper. Those who drafted him are happy as clams. I have him in my brother's league.

    agree congrats to the Burner!

    I knew he would shine when he got the chance, I only wish I had got him in my FFdraft

    Well deserved....He is deserving of the attention he is getting. Nothing but love for the guy. I will be cheering for his intro when the Falcons come to town. But when the game is on...IT'S ON!!

    Props to “The Burner”, I knew that he would do well in “the ATL”….he’s an NFL proven RB who will take a ton of pressure off rookie QB Matt Ryan by providing him with what few new QBs are fortunate enough to have at their disposal - a credible running game.

    The only question mark now is if Turner is able to take the pounding as the #1 guy for an entire NFL season….if he can, he may just compete for the rushing title! :tup:

    Could you imagine LT and Turner as the top two RBs? Everyone would just have to admit that SD is the **** when it come to drafting running backs, cornerbacks, and any other position for that matter.

    ... When Mr. A.J. Smith, in his infinite wisdom, drafted the Burner in the late rounds. It will turn out to be every bit as good a selection if not better, than the Donks snagging Terrell Davis years ago. I'll always be grateful for his "nail in the coffin" 83 yarder to snap the Colts unbeaten streak a few years ago. I only wish that he could have been ours long enough to step in after LT hung it up. Not a realistic wish, of course :no:

    I really don't think that MT will have a problem carrying the load.

    Nope,

    I got Chris Johnson, the next LT, and your NFL Rookie of the Year (if he stays healthy) :lol:!

    Seriously, I love Turner, but RB's have about a five year shelf life typically, and you can get by with a decent one.
