As if a Game 2 loss wasn’t enough of a blow to Hawks fans, the news that broke Saturday afternoon killed their hopes and dreams. Kyle Korver will reportedly miss the remainder of the playoffs with the right ankle sprain he suffered in Game 2 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. This is a huge blow to the Hawks, whose offense relies heavily on the sharpshooter. Korver made his first All-Star game this season and his three point shooting makes him an X-Factor for Atlanta, as he opens up lanes for his teammates. Korver had a great regular season, shooting 49% from 3-point...Continue reading »

With so many personnel changes in Atlanta, Dan Quinn has gotten most of the attention. However, the Falcons made another great coaching hire in Kyle Shanahan. Son of Mike Shanahan, Kyle set the record for being the youngest offensive coordinator in NFL history. Shanahan left the Browns in early January due to a disagreement with the front office regarding Johnny Manziel being the team’s starter. Shanahan has a similar offensive philosophy to Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak, and his father Mike Shanahan who coached in the NFL for nearly 30 years. Never before has Shanahan...Continue reading »

Though they did not emerge victorious in Game 1 of the series, Atlanta held their own against the Cavs. Many felt that if not for a huge night from beyond the arc for J.R. Smith that the Hawks could have won that game. Game 2 was a different story. The Hawks came out in the old-school uniforms and had the city fired up representing them, but left their crowd disappointed. The 12-point loss was never that close. Lebron James led the way with 30 points, 11 assists and 9 rebounds. Even without Kyrie Irving, the Hawks just had no answer. They simply could not score. Dennis...Continue reading »

1) Jeff Teague Staying Aggressive One of the bright spots for Atlanta in Game 1 was their starting Point Guard. Jeff Teague played like a man on a mission. He had 27 points (11-24 shooting) and kept aggressively driving to the basket. Teague has had his struggles for most of the postseason, but Game 1 in the Eastern Conference Finals was an exception. I usually mention that if Teague plays well, the team does well. He is the engine that can fire up Atlanta, and the Hawks better hope their starting point guard can bring it in Game 2. If Teague can keep up the intensity,...Continue reading »

  Starter: Patrick DiMarco Earlier this offseason, the Falcons signed fullback Collin Mooney. While Mooney did not play last season, DiMarco did and had an up and down season as the fullback. In Week 17, the Falcons fullback could not catch a pass to save his life. Mooney, on the other hand, could fit better in Kyle Shanahan’s offense, as Mooney is more of a hybrid fullback and halfback. I give the nod to DiMarco for several reasons. First, I think getting rid of players that are talented and somehow do not “fit” a coach’s scheme is...Continue reading »

  Shortly after being designated by assignment by the Braves to make room for Nick Masset on the 40-Man Roster, RHP John Cornely has been traded to the Red Sox for cash considerations. Cornely saw a very short stint in Atlanta, in which he gave up 4 earned runs in a single inning. Cornely has fared better in the minors, and has posted a 4.42 ERA in AAA this year. He did pitch well in Mississippi last season, which maybe sparked Boston’s interest. Cornely will head to AAA Pawtucket. ...

Starter: Tevin Coleman The starter could go either way, and I’m leaning on Tevin Coleman on being the starting halfback. I am a big fan of Devonta Freeman and love his work ethic, but Coleman’s potential is undeniable. While I think both Coleman and Freeman will see the field plenty in 2015, only one gets the start. We have yet to see the rookie running back actually play a down in the NFL, but we saw a glimpse of his talent in college. Running for 2000 yards last year showed off how durable, tough, elusive, and the top-notch vision and speed in his arsenal....Continue reading »

    The NFL has chosen the city of Atlanta to be one of the four final cities to host the 2019 and 2020 Super Bowl. It will likely be found out who will host the Super Bowls in the league owners meeting, which is in next May (2016). Owner Arthur Blank plans to have the new stadium ready by 2017, and it will attract many people to come see it in person. The other three finalists are New Orleans, Miami, and Tampa. New Orleans and Miami have hosted 10 Super Bowls each, Tampa has hosted four, and Atlanta has only hosted two. With the new stadium to be up and ready...Continue reading »

Jeff Teague Must be the Jeff Teague of Old Jeff Teague was a masterful tactician during the regular season. He was constantly attacking the paint and making plays for him and his teammates. He made timely decisions without making many mistakes. When it was crunch time, Jeff Teague was the guy selected to get it done, and he did a terrific job of it. This is why many critics and fans have begged to see the same guy in the playoffs. Teague is shooting under 40 percent in the playoffs and has looked tentative when on the court. In Game 5 against the Wizards, Teague reportedly...Continue reading »
