Cigarette butts pose litter problems

Cigarette litter may be small but it is really nasty to me. In my mind, no litter is "good" litter, but there is nothing messier than seeing sidewalks and curbs "decorated" with cigarette butts, disposable lighters, matches and cigarette packaging.

Atlanta's edge is on the perimeter with wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White, who had 12 catches in his last game against the Ravens. Quarterback Matt Ryan makes too many throws eye-to-eye with pass rushers and more horizontal patterns and dump-offs to running backs Antone Smith and Steven Jackson spreads Baltimore's attacking linebackers.
