Inside The Locker Room

Monday in The Locker Room:

  • ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure joined us to talk about Arthur Blank's improptu meeting with reporters after yesterday's loss to Tampa Bay, and he told Crump and JP about the owner's continued support for both Mike Smith and Thomas Dimitroff.
  • Vaughn also told the guys that Mr. Blank re-iterated that Mike Smith's job is safe with the Falcons.
  • Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas joined us as he does each and every Monday, and he told the guys that the team has collectively put themselves in the position they're in at the moment.
  • And HD also said that any thoughts of quitting or 'tanking' are the furthest things from his and his teammates minds as they prepare for Thursday night's game against New Orleans.
  • Tony Barnhart checked in to wrap up Saturday's all-timer between Georgia and Auburn and he also addressed Florida Head Coach Will Muschamp's postgame comments directed toward the Gator faithful, for what he felt was negativity directed toward his players. While Tony agrees with the Coach's sentiments, he told the guys that Muschamp may have been better served keeping his thoughts in-house.
