1 - It is an NFL fans worst nightmare to realize your team is out of the playoff race before Halloween. Well that is where the Falcons fans are now.
2 - The Georgia-Florida winner has some life in the SEC East. The loser will stamp its season as an unbelievable faliure.
3 - Florida St. is the best team in America IMHO
4 - NFL games in London annoy me. Now I see the league wants as many as 8 games a year in London...oy
5 - This World Series while not capturing America has had a little bit of everything and has been really entertaining
I love blackjack. I love craps. I love America
1 - With the Falcons off yesterday I got to watch a ton of NFL games and it is true this league is closer than it has ever been in talent from team to team. A 10 win team and a 6 win team look really similar.
2. I watched Sean Payton go conservative against the Pats and it cost him. He essentially gave Tom Brady 3 chances late in the game to beat his team and Brady took advantage.
3. After watching Georgia dig out of a 28-10 halftime hole to get within 28-26, Todd Grantham's defense couldn't stop a backup QB who was playing for the 1st time. Add to it the freshmen QB was playing in a hostile environment. Now is the time to make the change...I mean today.
4. Georgia Tech dropped their 3rd straight game and once again we are watching the lack of talent catch up to Tech against legitimate competition. The program has been in decline for 3 years and it is not getting better.
5. I saw a rumor that the Falcons are interested in trading for Hakeem Nicks. I would not go there. This team has so many holes and to give up a draft pick for a rental player is not worth it.
1 - The Falcons were supposed to be special on offense. Special means scoring 30+ points a game and so far the offense is average as grits.
2 - The Braves injuries could have derailed the season like injuries derailed the Nats, Yankees, and Phillies seasons. The Braves winning 96 games with all the injuries is incredibly impressive.
3- Mark Richt has beaten Steve Spurrier and Les Miles in back to back SEC games.
4 - Aaon Murray played another huge game in a big spot. He was outstanding again Saturday
5 - Lane Kiffin failures are not his fault. They are the fault of the Raiders, Tennessee and USC. You hired a guy who has not prepared to handle any of those jobs.
1 - Fredi Gonzalez should win NL manager of the year. Overcoming big injuries and some major underachievements on offense.
2 - Freddie Freeman is making a serious run at MVP. His numbers back it up but beyond the numbers he was so clutch all season for this team.
3 - I would start Julio Teheran is game 1 of the postseason. I like his ability to miss bats. Medlen is hotter right now but he is a pitch to contact guy and that is dangerous in the postseason.
4 - The Falcons rushed for 146 yards. Matt Ryan didn't get sacked. The Falcos D came up with 5 sacks and forced 2 turnovers...and they lost??? Doesn't add up or it shoudn't but the offense again didn't finish drives.
5 - The best weekend of the football season locally is upon us. Ga. Tech hosts Va. Tech Thursday night. Georgia welcomes LSU Saturday and the Falcons have Brady and the Pats in the dome Sunday night.
1 - Aaron Murray was sensational on Saturday. He won a big game and was in complete control. Btw this Gurley kid is decent.
2 - The Falcons must be more balanced. 38 pass attempts and only 13 rushes. Can't happen, especially with questions in pass protection
3 - The Braves streaky offense is once again a mess. Honestly the bats haven't been good since Heyward went down. They will be one and done if Heyard is not able to return and be a factor.
4 - Colin Kaepernick is silly good.
5 - Lane Kiffin's coaching clock is ticking and I think it will run out at season's end.
5 - Todd Gurley runs this week. Sit back and enjoy
