I find that funny. Atl is still soft along the lines and now have to adjust to an entirely new staff and system. In Nawlins Loomis missed big on huge signings and now has a team with less talent and way more debt.
You can't really count either out, especially in this division but to call them favorites is a slap in the face.
I really hope this guy makes the roster. Tolbert is a good runner and catcher, but lacks in the lead blocking role. Ward could fill that gap and learn from Tolbert about the other stuff and become a well rounded and valuable FB.
