Didn't DT have Micro Fracture to fix his foot?

Seems like a quick turnaround from that, I thought that took longer than 6 months.

I don't know if DT did, don't think so, but I always remember TD having it and he never really recovered. Of course they are making great advancements as far as recovery time, especially with ACL, so this may not be as big a deal any longer.

It was lisfranc surgery right? It was still not proven that an athlete could recover from that when DT was picked correct?

I believe it was a 'Jones Fracture' (same as Edelman had), I recall it was Decker who had the lisfranc .

Think Decker had the lisfranc, DT was just a fractured bone in his foot. Normal but not ideal for a first round pick who was 6-3 228 at the time.

That really sucks. He was amazing that year and I loved his drive and the way he turned his career around.

I think Denver would have beat Balt in the playoffs that year had Moreno not been injured that game.

I think so too, mcgahee and Moreno were out and Hillman has never been known for breaking a tackle and with McCoy's martyball type offense it made the potent offense suddenly pedestrian.

Atlanta Falcons fans might encounter sticker shock when they attend their first game in Mercedes-Benz Stadium next year. That's because the team announced Monday that it will offer what will amount to the lowest concession prices at the major-sports-team level.

A bottomless soda, which will come with free and unlimited refills, will cost $2 -- the same cost as a bottle of water, popcorn and a pretzel. A slice of pizza, peanuts and fries will be $3 each, while a cheeseburger will cost $5. A chicken tenders basket will cost $6.

Making Concessions

Atlanta's new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, when it opens in 2017, will offer the lowest-priced concessions at the major sports team level:
ITEMS COST COST
Classic Hot Dog $2 Waffle Fries $3
Pizza Slice $3 Classic Cheeseburger $5
Nachos $3 Chicken Tender Basket $6
Snacks Cost Cost
Pretzel $2 Popcorn $2
Peanuts $3
Beverages Cost Cost
Regular Coca-Cola** $2 Dasani Bottled Water $2
Souvenir Coca-Cola** $4 12 oz. Bud Light $5
** Comes with free/unlimited refills
>> All prices include sales tax
"We'll be able to feed a family of four at our games for $27," said Steve Cannon, CEO of the AMB Group, the family of businesses owned by Arthur Blank that includes the Falcons, Atlanta United and the new stadium that will open in 2017. "That's 60 to 70 percent cheaper than our competitors."

Cannon said the team had a discussion as to how low it could go on the beer, so as not to hurt the fan experience, and arrived at $5 for a 12 ounce cup of a product such as Bud Light.

"In any fan survey, food and beverage is one of the most important drivers of fan experience and the one that is the most broken," Cannon said. "It's either lack of quality, lousy delivery or bloodcurdling pricing."

Cannon said the pricing was arrived at by studying the greater Atlanta marketplace and, at the very least, matching the prices that fans would pay in the area in everyday life.

The Falcons hope to make up some of the money lost on typical margins by doing volume. There will be 670 concession points in the new stadium, which is 65 percent more availability than the team has in the Georgia Dome. Soda refill stations will be separate from lines for those ordering for the first time. Prices, including tax, are right on the dollar, meaning there's no change to be made, thus speeding up the transaction time.

The prices also could serve as an incentive for fans to buy tickets. While Cannon said the concession prices aren't to achieve a greater goal, the Falcons have had a harder time selling seats in the upper bowl for its new stadium. The most expensive seats, $45,000 PSLs on the 50-yard line, are sold out.

Unlike most teams, selling concession rights in exchange for guaranteed cash, Blank -- who had often talked about making concession prices match those offered to patrons at Augusta National for the Masters -- didn't make that deal. Instead, his company forged an operator relationship with Levy Restaurants that comes with a flat management fee. That allowed the team creativity to make the drastic change.

Cannon said the stadium will have premium food items as well, as deals are currently being negotiated with Atlanta's top chefs and restaurateurs. He said that those prices also will match what the items cost in the outside world without additional markup.

The prices will be the same for concerts and other events in the stadium, including the 2018 College Football Playoff Title Game and the 2020 Final Four.

I applaud these prices...overall more expensive that out of the stadium, but a deal compared to most places where you are a captive consumer.
