Notes: Falcons left tackle Sam Baker, who missed the Dolphins game with foot and knee injuries, and wide receiver Roddy Jones (ankle) returned to limited practice. Running back Stephen Jackson (hamstring) was the only player who did not participate. . . . Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez explained why he left the Dolphins game briefly. "I got my bell rung, like when you're in a fight and you get hit in the sweet spot. It was not a concussion."
No matter who else suits up, the Falcons know better than to take the 14-year veteran Brady lightly.
New England beat the Falcons 31-28 on Oct. 9, 2005 on a 29-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri with 17 seconds left. Brady put on a clinic,Cheap Air Max 720, completing 22 of 27 passes for 350 yards, three touchdowns and an interception.
The Falcons cornerback has a tendency to intercept. After the Patriots drafted him in the fourth round in 2003, he started a streak that saw him become the only player in NFL history to return at least one interception for a touchdown in his first six seasons. His four postseason interception returns for touchdowns also are an NFL record.
"Some quarterbacks may need a yard or a half yard of separation to feel comfortable throwing the ball," said Falcons safety Thomas DeCoud. "You could be draped all over (a receiver), and if he feels there's enough space . . . the ball is coming.
"We had a lot of battles,Raiders Jerseys Cheap," Samuel said of Brady. "He loves to try to be perfect as possible, and the way he prepares every day is true professionalism. He has the total package."
New England's beleaguered receiving corps may offer Atlanta defensive coordinator Mike Nolan opportunities to call more man-to-man and press coverages, although Smith said Thursday he anticipates the return of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
"He's very efficient. He's very up-tempo. He'll catch you on your heels. People are still lining up or getting the calls in, and he's running a play,Air Max 720 UK," Trufant said of Brady. "He's seen it all . . . You've got to be on your Ps and Qs because he'll expose you."
Samuel spent his first five NFL seasons with the Patriots and won two Super Bowls with New England from 2003-'07.
"He's a dynamic playmaker; you still see it now," Brady said in a Wednesday teleconference. "I've thrown more interceptions to Asante than probably anybody. He lets you know when he intercepts it,Wholesale Shoes Clearance Uk, too."
"He reads coverages,Wholesale Shoes Nike, he makes the right plays, he positions the balls correctly, he throws the deep ball," Samuel said. "You just got to prepare, be ready for a guy . . . you're going to play against one of the best,Cheap Shoes China, and the execution and tempo is going to be unbelievable so don't be shocked."
Thursday was the first time since training camp Samuel spoke with media. He had  plenty of good things to say about Brady, and he's offered young teammates advice.
The Falcons start rookie cornerback Desmond Trufant, and undrafted rookie linebackers Paul Worrilow and Joplu Bartu also were on the field as Miami marched to victory.
"I'm kind of used to not getting too many balls my way," Samuel said Thursday. "I'm sure my boy Brady will come at me."
"He puts it in the right place, and with his accuracy his confidence in his arm is incredible. You're really not going to trick him very much."
They're going to need to grow up fast.
Samuel has 50 career interceptions, a lot more if you count practice.
But the Patriots and Brady have been less potent than usual. He's completing a career-low 57.5 percent of his passes for a modest 232.7 yards per game.
Still, Falcons head coach Mike Smith also is concerned about his team's issues. On Monday, Smith lamented the soft pass coverage his defense played as the Dolphins put together a 13-play, 75-yard, game-winning drive.
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Atlanta's Asante Samuel expects more balls to be thrown his way Sunday night when the Falcons host the New England Patriots and the cornerback's former teammate Tom Brady.
Hopefully, Samuel has some inside secrets, although when asked about that Thursday he said that Brady, "has no tendencies."

Many thought Atlanta had the total package entering the season, but the Falcons (1-2) are in unexpected territory after entering the season among Super Bowl favorites in the NFC. If they're going to even their record, the secondary is going to have to play better than when last the Pats (3-0) visited.
