ESTShareTweetShareShareForgotten Falcons: Brady Smith Welcome to Forgotten Falcons, a 2019 offseason series where we remember some quality players who have been largely forgotten by the fanbase over the years. Today, we’ll continue our series with another defensive lineman who isn’t discussed much today, former defensive end Brady Smith. Time in Atlanta: 2000-2005Stats: 262 tackles, 32 sacks, 10 pass deflections, 2 forced fumbles, 1 defensive touchdownWhy you should remember him John Abraham overshadowed a lot of defensive ends in Atlanta Stitched Ricardo Allen Jersey , and he, Chuck Smith, Patrick Kerney, and then the busts tend to stand out in the memory of fans over time. That means that some quietly good players were overshadowed by guys either much better or much worse than them, and the first name that comes to mind on any list you assemble is one Brady Smith.By dint of playing for the Atlanta Falcons, a team with an embarrassing history of pass rushers in the modern era where they actually tracked sacks, is actually fifth all-time for the franchise with 32. He’s also in the neighborhood of fifth all-time for pass deflections by a defensive lineman, which is exactly the kind of random statistic these profiles were made for. Like the last man on this list Youth Ricardo Allen Jersey , Jumpy Geathers, Smith was a Saint before he was a Falcon. He signed as a free agent in the 2000 offseason after four solid but unspectacular years in New Orleans, including a promising 1999 where he put up six sacks and played all 16 games. As it turns out, solid but unspectacular would be his calling card in Atlanta, too, but I don’t mean that to be disparaging.Smith put up at least six sacks in three of his six seasons in Atlanta, grabbing eight in a very productive 2001 for a lousy Falcons team. He bridged the gap between the Dan Reeves era and the Jim Mora era, to say nothing of the Chris Chandler/grab bag and Michael Vick era Stitched Ryan Schraeder Jersey , and was a full-time starter at defensive end for five of those seasons. He was a also a solid run defender back when that was something that genuinely mattered a lot, and he and Kerney were one of the better tandems the Falcons have managed to put on the field over the last two decades.Perhaps Smith’s best play ever was his brutal soul snatch against Marc Bulger, when he took down the former Rams quarterback in his own end zone, forced a fumble, and recovered it for a touchdown. That’s fun and efficient, and Smith was a key cog in an underrated line filled with players who probably come more readily to mind for Falcons fans.It’s a particularly good time to remember the stability and quality play Smith gave the Falcons for six seasons, given that they face an extremely unsettled offseason at the position in the months ahead. If you have a favorite Smith memory, share it here! The Raiders will continue to host the Chargers on Sunday in spite of concerns over the air quality in North California following wild fires that are still raging across the state. Unless there is a major change in the next hour the Chargers and Raiders will hold to the scheduled 1:05 p.m. PT kickoff time Youth Ryan Schraeder Jersey , despite reports that smoke is heavy in the area. Players experienced some of the smoke on Thursday during practice —but fire conditions will make it even more difficult on Sunday.The Rams cancelled practice on Friday to allow players to spend time with their families andescape smoke affecting the area. The team also released a brief statement.Officials have downgraded air quality in the area and are warning people to stay indoors if they have any health conditions, and to avoid “heavy exertion.”The Raiders were handing out masks to fans arriving at the stadium.Skies over Oakland were blue, but that didn’t tell the story.What is happening right now? Several wildfires are raging in California, the largest of which is the Camp Fire, located just over an hour north of Sacramento. 25 people have died in the fires, with 200,000 forced to evacuate as a result of the fires. Conditions are showing no sign of assistance, with a lack of rain Stitched Andy Levitre Jersey , high winds and dry air continuing to fuel the fires.The Camp Fire is pushing thick smoke over the NorCal area, and remains just 20 percent contained. Strong southwest winds are fueling the fires, and pushing the smoke to the coast as a result — which should continue throughout Sunday and into Monday.Football isn’t important, but hopefully the game’s profile will raise awareness.If you are able to assist and donate to relief efforts there are several organizations working to help people in need in California.The American Red Cross is setting up shelters and food sites across the state.The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation supports first responders. They are currently seeking donations for hydration backpacks for firefighters in the field.The CCF Wildfire Relief Fund is providing immediate assistance, as well as working towards long-term preparedness measures.
