PFT: Osi, Falcons to Make it Official by Monday

Osi Umenyiora will finally get the love he’s been longing for. According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Osi is expected to put his name on contract to play for the Atlanta Falcons either today or tomorrow:

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Umenyiora is expected to join the Falcons on Sunday or, at the latest, on Monday.

“Atlanta is the place,” the source said.

The move will end Osi’s decade with the Giants.  He became a full-time starter in 2005.  By 2012, he was mainly a part-time player, appearing in every game but starting only four.

In Atlanta, he’ll step into the spot created by the departure of John Abraham.

And with that Donovan is not ready. He will be just not now. He's up because of injuries

No way that's no goal he never kicked it it just went off his skate. Get real NHL. If that was Pitt it would be a good goal. Hickey was real good today. He just a steady guy back there. Always ready to go. I'll say that we really miss Hamonic big time. And it was noticeable today. And viz as well. Put those two back and healthy. Our d is solid

Hamonic dehaan

Viz hickey

Amac strait

Cappy's mother probably taught  him  'if you can't say something nice about somebody, don't say anything at all.

Vanek probably seeing the misfortunes of this team may sway him into leaving, there is noting positive to look forward to with this team.

should not have had to go to OT their tiny defense can't stop anyone plain and simple and it is not going to change until they get big people on the roster to play d

But the season IS over, so it probably doesn't even matter except to rile some of us up

Wow another 2 goal lead washed out, I didn't see the 1st period, that happens way to frequently, and it falls on Cappy's head.

Sickening beyond sickening. But they had most of the third. We were back on our heels. And that can't happen. Drive them out of the rink in the third. Ot was ours got ripped off. But it never should have made it to ot. Should have had 3 of 4 points only got 1. This hurts. I'm silent Now

Screw this league and all the officials, but the Isles front office has brought all these problems upon themselves.

Not only that but it's a known fact that good teams get the benefit of the doubt, and bad teams get Screwed, it happens in all sports.

When hiring a neutered lapdog as coach, complacent timidity is considered a leadership trait.

Why? Toronto screwing us twice this year has nothing to do with owner or management

Explain...

Are you saying the NHL hates us because of our front office?

"I will be resigning effective immediately. I never should have been considered or hired to this position to begin with. Sorry i rused and subterfuged all of the people of Long Island with the idea this organization was rebuilding. Haha. Just a small joke. I am such a kidder.

Now my former boss will be exposed trying to find anyone not currently playing to replace my post."

Thank you, Garf!

Well, I don't know about you, but that certainly made ME feel better!

Matt, yes it does. At the owners' meetings Wang is the pink elephant in the room - it is commonly known throughout hockey circles (making suggestions like having every team making the playoffs and signing 15 year contracts to marginally good players will do that).

Sports leagues are political, just like hockey franchises and message boards! Of course, this team suffers from general incompetence stemming from the scumbag.

@isles23 because some how the leauges bias has everything to do with our owner and gm

The last thing a criminal boss wants is autonomous behavior on the part of underlings...

Lapdogs, yes men, fall guys, propagandists, fools and knaves - now that's Chuck Wang's idea of how to organize an operational hierarchy.
