Turner, Falcons Want To Be 'Nasty'

    Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey offered some incentive to his linemen at the start of training camp. "If you get a stalemate [with a defense], the pile is going to move and you know what could happen to you if Michael Turner comes up behind you," Mularkey said. "It may be better to be pushing than just standing there." Mularkey forgot to mention that Turner most likely would be chauffeured to, and maybe through, the offensive line by bruising fullback Ovie Mughelli. Turner and Mughelli, the Falcons' two big-free agent signings the past two seasons, provide nearly 500 pounds of speed and muscle.

    They won't be nasty unless the offensive line brings their A game day in and day out, and quite frankly, I'm not sure we can dominate with our OLine seeing we have a lot of injury prone and young linemen. It will take time.

    The Falcons O-Line has to show up and perform. They were horrendous last season, so if they can get something on track, Turner could be successful...if not, no one will see the Michael Turner that ran the ball behind that line in San Diego!!

    The O line is getting such a bad rap! LOL! I'm positive that things aren't NEARLY as dismal on the Falcons OL as ANYONE thinks they are.

    falcons oline is not nearly as bad as you make them out to be....joey harrington and chris redman however were that horrible. Having justin blalock and sam baker on the left side are not terrible places to start when your rebuilding

    Has your O line been much improved in the off season?

    Our first round LT has an injured ankle.

    You're right wareagle, they were killed by injuries last season and that's part of the reason they were so bad. I think if they can put it together, under the new offense, they'll put up some good rushing numbers between Norwood and Turner.

    Foster and Clabo were pleasant surprises last year, and we actually addressed the OL in the first couple rounds of the draft for the first time in over a decade last year. If we can avoid the injuries, it could be a pretty good (and deep) unit.
