This week's movie, Lion, is another one nominated for six academy awards and is considered a biographical drama. It is one hour and 58 minutes long and rated PG-13 for thematic material.

In 1986, Saroo was a five-year-old child livening in India, part of a poor but happy family. On a trip with his brother, Saroo soon finds himself alone and trapped in a moving decommissioned passenger train that takes him to Calcutta, 1,500 miles from home.
0 of Boldin. Guys like that, you love when they have success because theyre such good people, too.

As a member of Baltimores staff, Harman also coached the AFC squad in the Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

SUPER BOWL 52

Sometimes Im the last to know about those things, Harman said of rumors Atlanta is considering trading for shutdown corner Richard Sherman of Seattle. Dan Quinn was Shermans defensive coordinator before taking the head coaching position for the Falcons. You cant get enough of those guys. The NFL is a passing league anymore.

When Atlanta lost to New England in Super Bowl 51, they were playing without their best cornerback, Desmond Trufant, which did not help when Brady was picking their secondary apart in the second half. On April 8, the Falcons locked in Trufant for another five years. Jordan Schultz of 'The Huffington Post' calls Trufant "one of the league's brightest young defensive stars."

Any time you lose a guy [it hurts], Harman said of the impact of Trufants absence. But thats the NFLyou always get guys knocked out and coming back in. It happens. Better years, when you keep everybody healthy, you have a better shot. [Trufant] should be back and ready to go.

One of the players Harman had a say in drafting last year was Stanford rookie Austin Hooper, who caught a touchdown pass against the Patriots.

You just never know whos going to be left when you pick, especially down the line a little bit, Harman said of the NFL draft. Because of this seasons success, the Falcons must wait until the 31st slot in the first round.

Though the Atlanta players were distraught after allowing a championship to slip through their fingertips, this is the most important time for a coach to be there for the young men he mentors. Just like growing up in Iowa, when the blizzard hits, that is when a farmer must trudge through the drifts. The wind is now calm. And Harman is carrying a Tommy Gun.

I still enjoy getting up and going to work, Harman said. Its not work for me. I still have a passion for it.

Even after the heartbreaking loss in Februarys Super Bowl, life goes on for Harman and for the Atlanta Falcons.

Every loss is heartbreaking, Harman said. But weve got a process we go through to try and get better. We stay with it. Were competitors, and thats what we do. All losses are hard. Thats what makes it special when you win it.

Weve got some strong character guysIll take this group. Weve already looked at some things in the offseasonhow do we change our process, what things do we want to do a bit different, and well crank it up again. It was a great year. It was a fun year. If thats the worse thing that happens, you lose a Super Bowl, thats a pretty good life.
