Matt Stafford for Atlanta's first round pick. There, the Falcons now have a new QB.

Matt Stafford & Detroit's 1st round pick (7) for Matt Ryan & Atlanta's 1st round pick (4)?

As a Falcons fan, I'll sign off on this.

Sarah Fuller Suits Up for Vanderbilt Against Missouri

As I watched, I thought intentional, but of course lots of questioning on Twitter. Coach said postgame it was a designed squib.

I checked her Wiki page, Sarah is headed to North Texas for her Masters next year (Hospital Administration), and plans to play for the women's soccer team.

Sarah Fuller Suits Up for Vanderbilt Against Missouri

Fuller handled the 2nd half kickoff. 30 yards, with no return. One would have to figure nerves played a part, or was that a squib kick?
