Yesterday, every team in the NFL had to cut their rosters down to 53 players.  While this was a tough day for many players who didn't make their respective teams, some of them got a consolation prize: a spot on the practice squad.  

Unfortunately for fan favorite Brian Banks, he did not make the team.

These players are the lucky few who made it to the Falcons practice squad roster:

WR Darius Johnson, WR James Rodgers, FB Patrick DiMarco, QB Seth Doege, CB Jordan Mabin, G Phillipkeith Manley, TE Mickey Shuler and DT Adam Replogle.

It was good to see Darius Johnson make the practice squad after he was snubbed from the 53-man roster after putting up arguably the best preseason stats out of the back up WRs.

The roster and the practice squad is set.  The first game is one week from today on September 8th against the much loved loathed New Orleans Saints in the friendly hostile confines of the Super Dome.  

It's one of the most underrated rivalries in the NFL, and it kicks off the season next week in grand style.  Stay tuned for our season predictions and full analysis of this coming week's anticipated action.  Are you ready Falcons fans?
