    Atlanta Falcons RB Jerious Norwood showed more than a few flashes of brilliance as a rookie. And he's wasting little time showing what he can do as he heads into his sophomore season. "Jerious is a guy that you look at, you watch him on video and you say: Wow, this guy has a chance to really make some big plays for us," HC Bobby Petrino said. "He can accelerate and cut very quickly and he has home run speed. Hes a very good receiver out of the backfield so were looking forward to seeing how we utilize him catching the ball out of the backfield. He just needs to continually work on his blitz pickup and protecting the quarterback."
