There was a sigh of relief across the NFL landscape this weekend as the discussion returned to the field, leaving the courtrooms and news-conference podiums behind.

Gang, it's a monster week, and you guys were money yesterday. Mondays are crazy for us so we didn't respond, but we'll pull a couple of mailbag possibilities out of the dialogue. Oh yeah, remember the mailbag.

It would not be inaccurate to look back at the Atlanta Braves' organization over the past couple of decades and compare it to those Las Vegas tourism ads: What happens inside their inner sanctum stays within that inner sanctum.

It's Monday. Hope you are ready for the week, because the week is ready for you.

That 10-2, stink bomb of a loss the Atlanta Braves suffered against the New York Mets on Sunday? Call it a favor. A big favor.

His Scenic City Youth Football League having taken over Finley Stadium on Saturday, SCYFL president Bobby Dunn stared down from the press box at his undersized scrappers in oversized helmets and said, "I like to think we've been successful because we're about more than football."

It was a no-brainer. With Thursday being a day off work for me and a day without college classes for my son Riley, we decided to drive to Atlanta to watch the Falcons play that night.

To be fair, the last couple of weeks have been tough for Roger Goodell.

Right in the lumber yard.

Welcome back kiddies, it's Thursday and that means the weekend is here.

It didn't take Chattanooga Lookouts president and general manager Rich Mozingo long to put a human touch to Wednesday's announcement that the American League's Minnesota Twins will now be the parent club of the Looks.

Adrian Peterson has been placed on the exempt list, meaning the star running back will be out of football-related activities until all the legal issues after he was indicted on charges of "reckless or negligent injury to a child" are resolved.

Former Tennessee tight end Jason Witten didn't get a chance to watch every minute of his alma mater's 34-10 loss at Oklahoma on Saturday night. Something about his day job with the Dallas Cowboys forced him to hit the pillow early in the third quarter.

We believe the New Orleans Saints are among the cream of the NFL crop. That said, the cream could be a flop.
