The Real 2013-14 NBA All-Stars

On Thursday the NBA announced it’s 2013-14 NBA All-Star game starters, which made me want to give my All-Star selections. I’m going to give you the players that most deserve it, the players who I thought were best, and completely disregard the fan vote, because I really do not like it. After all, Kobe Bryant was selected as a starter, that’s all that needs to be said. So let’s...

Falcons Pre-Season Game Three Wrap-Up: I Need a Flashy Thingy

The third pre-season game is where you get to see your starters for an extended period of time and you generally start to see the team coming together for better or worse. If that's the case, then after this performance by the Falcons, I'm in desperate need of a Neuralyzer. First the good. The Falcons won the first quarter 6-0 and their first three drives took...

Atlanta Falcons: Lombardi Train Stops This Year in Dirty South

For the Atlanta Falcons, the rise to finishing the puzzle has been one missing piece away for the past few years. They get Matt Ryan and Michael Turner in 2008 and begin their uphill trek.  With the addition of Tony Gonzalez in 2009 to aide veteran wideout, Roddy White, everything was starting to fall into place.  And now, the Falcons from HOT-lanta, who have made the postseason...

NFL Scouting Combine 2013: Day One Recap

If we took anything from the first day of the on-field workouts of the 2013 edition of the NFL Scouting Combine it’s that speed kills. The crazy thing about it is that it was the normally sluggish offensive lineman that were proving that they are fleet-footed. Terron Armstead exploded out of the gate early with a 4.71 40-yard dash time that was not topped by anyone in his group...

Champs & Chumps: Dez Bryant, Tony Romo Put Up Big Numbers in Loss

Unless you’re in some sort of bogus fantasy league that plays Week 17, in which case quit and join a new league, fantasy football for you is over in 2012.Better luck next year… or maybe congratulations. Or maybe a little bit of both (since most of you reading this are probably in 3+ fantasy leagues).For most NFL teams, next week has the significance of a preseason game. Thus...

Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints Game Predictions

What better week for predictions than when the Atlanta Falcons travel down to Louisiana to play the much hated Saints.  How do you think a group of Falcons fans will predict the game? We hope there will be plenty of this. I am a bit disappointed I am the only one who predicted the Saints will be kept under 14 points.   Kevin Offensively these teams are...

Atlanta Falcons: Tony Gonzalez, "The Ageless Wonder"

Tony Gonzalez, "The Ageless Wonder" as I like to call him, has made it clear that the 2012 season will most likely be his last season in the NFL.  However, I am going to make a case for why he should stay with the Falcons for one more year, if not more.Coming into this season, Tony G. was regarded as the best tight end in the history of the game.  His career numbers as...

Kings fire Murray, John Stevens named interim. Granato staying in Pittsburgh

Via TheRoyalHalf: Today, Coach Terry Murray was let go by the Kings after 3 seasons and 29 games of service. He was exactly who we thought he would be... a strong, silent, patient leader that would help re-build this wandering Kings team in a "defense first" mentality. And based on Coach Murray's past... he had taken this team as far as he could. He had helped...
