As if they didn't have enough problems, the Falcons were scrambling to defend a halftime show featuring three rap groups. Bonecrusher, Youngbloodz and Jermaine Dupri performed Sunday during a 23-16 loss to the Eagles. Bonecrusher of Atlanta opened with the hip-hop hit Never Scared, in which he muses about shooting someone in the head.
