When Ram Coach John Robinson looks at the Atlanta Falcons, his team's opponent Sunday, all he sees are thoroughbreds.
"They've got a lot of talent," Robinson said. "I think you look at the talent, what is it, 15 first-round draft choices? They've been accumulating, and they've made a couple of really good trades. You start going through the list of some of those guys . . . (Practically) the whole first offense is first-round draft choices."
For the record, the Falcons have 14 first-round picks--eight on offense and six of them starters, and six on defense, three of whom start.
Ram receiver Flipper Anderson doesn't expect his team to be able to take advantage of Falcon cornerback Charles Dimry as much as the San Francisco 49ers did last week. Dimry was beaten by receiver Jerry Rice on four of Rice's five touchdown receptions.
"It was just one of those days," Anderson said of Dimry. "You know he's going to come back this week to try to prove that he's a better DB than that. And I happen to know him personally, and I know he's better than that."
