The Falcons regular season schedule was released on Thursday, and while there are still a lot of unknowns about how NFL rosters will look with the draft approaching, it is never too early to start predicting how the season will pan out. Let’s take a look at the 2018 schedule which begins in Philadelphia: WK1 Sept. 6 at Philadelphia 8:20pm NBC WK2 Sept. 16 vs. Carolina 1:00pm FOX WK3 Sept. 23 vs. New Orleans 1:00pm FOX WK4 Sept. 30 vs. Cincinnati 1:00pm CBS WK5  Oct. 7 at Pittsburgh 1:00pm FOX WK6  Oct. 14 vs. Tampa Bay 1:00pm FOX WK7  Oct....Continue reading »

D.J. Chark– WR, LSU Chark was arguably the best player on LSU’s football team last season and sort of flew under the radar in terms of the draft process. That is until he dominated the Senior Bowl and ran a ridiculous 4.34 40-yard dash at the combine. There is a good shot Chark is taken late in the first round or early in the second round, but if he somehow slips to the Falcons in the second, they would be fools not to select him. The 6′ 3″ receiver would add yet another explosive piece to the Atlanta offense and also could help in the return...Continue reading »

Going into this offseason, the Hawks are in a pretty good situation on paper. They have some of the best draft assets in a loaded class and have more than double the cap space of any other team. But do not expect them to be contenders in NBA free agency this summer by any stretch. Following the crazy spending that followed the NBA salary cap spike, with cap holds intact only five teams are projected to have cap space available this offseason. The Hawks will have $18,325,439 to operate with, and teams across the NBA will be desperate to pawn off their bad contracts...Continue reading »

Round 1, Pick 26: Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State The Falcons finally go get “the guy” that they have needed at tight end ever since Tony Gonzalez left town. Dallas Goedert is simply the best tight end in this class. Though he has had the advantage of feasting on weaker defenses than the other prospects, his production is just absurd for a tight end. In his last two seasons at South Dakota State, Goedert caught 164 balls for 2,404 yards and 18 touchdowns. The popular player comparison for Goedert has been Zach Ertz, and for good reason. Like Ertz, Goedert...Continue reading »

Braves fans can stop laughing at the Jose Bautista rumors from the offseason. It has actually come to fruition. New general manager Alex Anthopolous has given his former star from above the border one more crack at the big leagues. However, it does come with a catch: he must prove he can play third base. The six-time all-star came up as a third baseman. He is a notable late bloomer, not coming into his own until his age 29 season. He has primarily played outfield ever since. Bautista is coming off his worst season in a decade and is now 37-years old. He struck out...Continue reading »

Round 1, Pick 26: Maurice Hurst, DT/DE, Michigan Several experts have coined Hurst as one of the steals of the NFL draft. The Falcons have shown no problem since the arrival of Dan Quinn in selecting the player they believe fits best in their scheme. Hurst is a big athlete that can play on the inside or the outside. His quickness off the ball and speed allowed him to constantly disrupt backfields during his time at Michigan. This would be a nice pick for Atlanta, especially if many of the top d-line prospects are off the board by the time they select at pick 26. Round...Continue reading »

  Prior to the 2015 season, the Braves traded the likes of Jason Heyward, Justin Upton and Craig Kimbrel, committing to their first major rebuild since the late 80s. The unfamiliarity of the situation has made this process seem like decades for Braves fans. While it is still way too early to really gauge just how good this Braves team can be, their performance thus far along with the astonishing amount of talent on the cusp of the majors has produced a shining light at the end of the tunnel. The Braves vastly improved from 2016 to 2017 and their second half offensive...Continue reading »

The Braves offense has been electric this season, and the pitching has been much improved. However, it is clear that the Braves will need to upgrade their pitching staff to become a contender in the future. The Braves have four arms in AAA Gwinnett that will likely get a shot to contribute to the big league roster at some point this season. The team has been shuffling to fill out the last spot in the bullpen. Luke Jackson got his chance, and now Lucas Sims will get his crack at finding a role on the big league club. If Sims is not effective, expect the Braves to cycle...Continue reading »

Whether you are a fan of the team or a sports bettor looking for an edge, you may be wondering what are the betting odds for the Atlanta Braves this season. Currently, the Braves are labeled by Vegas as the second-to-worst team in the entire National League. Only the rebuilding Miami Marlins are considered less likely to win a league pennant. You can currently get 45 to 1 for your money if you back the Braves to win their league. This lack of faith by the experts favors those bold enough to place money on Atlanta as the numbers indicate the Braves are a value as a...Continue reading »

As the 2018 season has begun, it’s apparent that Major League Baseball is evolving in several areas. From the front office to the dugout, clubs are beginning to experiment with new-age tactics that can be referred to in a general sense as just “analytics”. It gets more complicated from there, but my main concern is the fact that how the game of baseball is perceived is evolving. The game itself isn’t exactly evolving, per se, but rather people are finding new ways to use data that’s always been around, and...Continue reading »
