Random Thoughts for 10/20

Quick Fix? Falcons Fail.

Lots of talk this off-season centered around the deniers claiming that the 2013 season was just a blip on the radar. The Falcons 4-12 collapse was just a symptom of the injuries and they were talented enough to rebound quickly. If you see those folks today, smack them.

It is one thing to be a fan, another to be blindly loyal. There was no depth on the Falcons roster even after the draft and free agency. It had appeared that they had filled a few holes and would rebound, but back in the playoff mix was nothing but a pipe dream.

Atlanta now must wake up and come to the realization that the window has closed. Period. This is not going to be a quick fix. We can't be suckered in to another off-season with talk of how they are just a few players away.

At 2-5, the Falcons are now 6-17 since they hosted the NFC Title Game in January of 2013. They have won just 26% of their games. Atrocious.

The discussion should now focus on the future and you should keep your hands clear of the window. It is slamming shut!

Georgia Alive in CF Playoff Hunt

There are 20 teams that are sitting with no losses or just one loss. Georgia is thrilled to be one of them! They deserve to be very proud.

At 6-1 the season goals are still in front of them. They can win the SEC East and advance to the Championship Game. They get Auburn at home in November. If they defeat Auburn, then Championship dreams will be worthy of some serious discussion. If not, they can still dream of an SEC Title.

Mark Richt and the Georgia program chose to do what was right in the Todd Gurley situation. Sometimes good things happen to good people. Integrity has ben rewarded.
