The NFL season is here!!! It is just preseason, but it’s a start. The Falcons start it off against the Dolphins in South Beach, Miami at 7 p.m. ET at Hard Rock Stadium. The Brotherhood is back and looking better than ever. Falcons fans received great news Wednesday morning when the front office resigned Devonta Freeman to a five-year extension, making him the highest-paid running back in the NFL. The Falcons enter the game without a few key pieces but only because it is the preseason. Dan Quinn announced on Tuesday that Julio Jones and Taylor Gabriel would miss...Continue reading »

The Braves have been linked to frontline starters non-stop for the past calendar year, but those who were expecting John Coppolella to finally make that blockbuster trade at the trade deadline were disappointed. They should not be. The Braves have a bright future, but it makes no sense to trade away the wide pool of talent they have worked so hard to create when they have not reached their window yet. Instead, Coppy made just one minor trade before the non-waiver deadline, and two more in the past week. But if you look at the big picture of what Coppolella has done...Continue reading »

  Atlanta Falcons Some terrific news broke early this morning out of Falcons camp. Devonta Freeman and the team finally came to terms on a contract extension that will keep the star running back in Atlanta through the 2020 season. The contract is a five-year extension worth $41.25 million, making Freeman the highest paid running back in the NFL today. For more on the extension, click here. Atlanta Braves The Braves lost another game to the MLB worst Phillies last night, 5-2. Julio Teheran made another horrific start, but we got to see another prospect make his...Continue reading »

The contract discussions between the Falcons and Devonta Freeman have been publicly discussed even prior to last year’s Super Bowl, when Devonta Freeman’s agent basically demanded Freeman be paid more money. Freeman, with still a year remaining on his rookie contract, was not the biggest concern for the Falcons front office, as Thomas Dimitrioff indicated that no deal would be happening this offseason. But somewhere, between Freeman’s patience and the Falcons willingness to get a deal done with the star running back, things changed. About a month ago,...Continue reading »

In one of the most bizarre events in the MLB this season, Johan Camargo went down with what appeared to be a serious knee injury before the game even began. Just as the team was trotting on the field to begin the ballgame, Camargo appeared to miss a step, and the result looked detrimental. "That is unbelievable." A freak accident forces the @Braves to take Johan Camargo out of the game before the 1st pitch. Stay tuned for more. pic.twitter.com/vq7chWx7VV — FOX Sports: Braves (@FOXSportsBraves) August 8, 2017 Camargo can be seen in excruciating pain...Continue reading »

According to Steven Goff, Atlanta United is close to bringing in veteran center back Bobby Boswell from DC United. Sources: D.C. United trading Bobby Boswell to Atlanta https://t.co/V7E2xro0D8 #dcu #mls #atlutd — Steven Goff (@SoccerInsider) August 8, 2017 Boswell obviously has some years of experience to his name, but how has he faired in MLS play in his later years? The 34-year-old has played at DC United for most of his career, with a five-year stint in Houston as well. He has appeared in 355 MLS matches and has scored 18 times since 2005. He has played...Continue reading »

Atlanta Falcons Vs. Miami Dolphins Chase Irle: This game might have just gotten a lot easier to pick, as the Dolphins fear at this moment that they could be without their starting QB, Ryan Tannehill, for the entire season. The Dolphins had to go through this last year, when Tannehill went down with a knee injury late in the season, and losing him again would just be a horrific blow to the organization. Without Tannehill, it looks like Miami will turn to Jay Cutler as the starting QB. While Cutler is probably better than their alternative, Matt Moore, the Dolphins have...Continue reading »

The bad boys of MLS were still in form last night as a 91′ goal from Jacob Peterson leveled the game and allowed Atlanta United to leave Kansas City with a point. It’s the third game in a row where Atlanta United were able to score past the 85th minute and earn a result. And while that’s all fun, we kind of miss watching the team give their opponents no chance early on. After all, the road point was very valuable and extended United’s unbeaten streak to six games (4-0-2) and puts the Five Stripes in second place with 16 road points earned –...Continue reading »

The Braves signed R.A Dickey last winter to a one-year deal with a club option in the second year worth $8 million. They were hoping the combination of Jaime Garcia, Bartolo Colon and Dickey could provide enough quality starts to keep the team competitive, but Colon was horrendous and Garcia is now wearing pinstripes. Dickey is the only one that remains, and for good reason, he has been the best of the bunch. Age has not slowed down the knuckleballer, who has just gotten better as the year has gone on. After a gaudy May, Dickey posted a 3-1 record in June and a 2.45...Continue reading »

Atlanta Falcons It usually is not a great sign when giant news breaks during training camp. That was the case on Sunday, when the Falcons announced their former second-round pick, Jalen Collins, will be suspended for the first ten games of the 2017 season. This is his second PED violation and the second year in a row Collins will start the season on a suspension. For more on the Collins suspension and what is next for the Falcons click here.  Atlanta United The United looked to continue their fantastic form on the road against Sporting Kansas City, who sported the best...Continue reading »
