Braves Season Over Without Acuna? – BY BUCK BELUE

June 12, 2021 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – It seems like a crushing blow. Acuna goes down with a torn right ACL. Out in Braves Country, all our hopes for a strong 2nd half run at a fourth consecutive National League East title has suddenly evaporated. Soroka, d’Arnaud, Ozuna, Ynoa and now Acuna. It feels…

Are the Braves buyers or sellers at the trade deadline? – BY BUCK BELUE

June 24, 2021 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – As pen hits paper, the Braves are hovering around .500 and still in the National League East mix. The team has been what some of the old-timers call “treading water.” But the MLB Trade frenzy starts soon. What will the Braves do? Obviously, this team as constructed…

Expanded playoffs are good for Kirby Smart… But how good? – BY DAN MATHEWS

June 16, 2021 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – I’ve had a co-worker here at 680 The Fan who has brought up that extended College Football Playoff fields would have meant a different narrative for Kirby Smart. I’m not sure I completely agree with that.  Yes, 12 teams would have seen the Dawgs in the playoff…

Georgia fans: Nick Saban is staying a little while longer… Good – BY DAN MATHEWS

June 9, 2021 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – Nick Saban isn’t stepping away from the field anytime soon. I’m good with that and Georgia fans should be too.  Saban put his signature on a contract extension that keeps him at Alabama through the 2028 season. Some would say that’s bad news for everyone else in…

The Time Clearly Is Now for UGA: It’s all there – BY DAN MATHEWS

June 2, 2021 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – The wish list coming out of spring practice was pretty simple and Georgia seemed to have gotten good favor with the transfer portal. Cornerback Derion Kendrick and tight end Arik Gilbert are Athens bound. You needed to get older in the secondary and you did that. You…

I’ll remember Julio Jones as a Falcon for what he was: “GREAT”! – BY DAN MATHEWS

May 26, 2021 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – It appears that Julio Jones’ time with the Falcons has come to an end. I’m not sad, mad or disappointed.  Julio clearly wants an opportunity to win a title before his career ends and he’s welcome to feel that way. It’s his career and he gets to…

May 24, 2021 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – That was fun to see Phil Mickelson walking up 18 with all the gallery around him on the way to his PGA Championship win. It was a sight that golf fans haven’t gotten in at least a couple of years.  Phil is still one of the fan…

The Blame Kirby Smart Game: Use of Transfer Portal isn’t one of them – BY DAN MATHEWS

May 20, 2021 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – Kirby Smart is not afraid to use the transfer portal. This has been proven time and time again. I bring this up, after the Outkick.com article a few days ago that highlighted a Kirby Smart “loss” in the transfer portal, with former Tennessee linebacker Henry To’o To’o choosing…

BRAVES HAVE A BAD VIBE GOING ON RIGHT NOW – BY BUCK BELUE

May 18, 2021 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – Braves Country is bummin! The first quarter of the Major League marathon season has been tough to watch in the Deep South. It’s amazing that we’re still in the NL East mix. Soroka lost for the season. D’Arnaud probably not coming back. Ynoa in frustration fractured his…

This Hawks team is already successful, but… – BY DAN MATHEWS

May 18, 2021 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – I said before the season and still maintain that just making the playoffs was a massive success for this team. When you have a core group who has in most cases never experienced postseason success, you can’t get too greedy with expectations.  If I were to tell…

May 12, 2021 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – Tim Tebow is a competitor and wants to play football. Urban Meyer, general manager Trent Baalke and the Jacksonville Jaguars want to give him that chance.  This should be the end of the story. But, it isn’t.  We can’t take things with nuance or for a specific…

May 10, 2021 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – This Braves bullpen needs help! It’s not for ineffectiveness, but for the impending wall if they continued down their current path.  The bullpen ERA is 4.56 and that has them 11th out of 15 teams in the National League. They’ve thrown over 125 innings of pitches through…

Falcons Draft: Mixed bag but mostly positive reaction – BY DAN MATHEWS

May 3 2021 – 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – The Falcons pick up nine players over the three days of the NFL Draft. Overall, I like what they did.  I think they had two goals over the three days. One, they wanted to take the best available player who could also help their strength… The…

Falcons draft weapon Kyle Pitts at #4! – BY BUCK BELUE

April 30, 2021 680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – I’m thrilled with the Falcons first round selection! Bet Matt Ryan is too. Fontenot made the right move. For a minute, I was thinking the best move would be to trade back and accumulate more quality picks in order to rebuild the defense. But obviously, nobody wanted…
