    Atlanta Falcons Need To Consider New Offensive Coordinator

    The Atlanta Falcons are just a couple of years removed from playing in the Super Bowl. And while their roster is largely the same as the one who played in that game, the team looks like a shell of its former self, as the Falcons have struggled to find ways to put points on the board. With their playoff hopes all but gone for 2018, the Falcons need to think about their future, and consider a future without current offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. Sarkisian took over for former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, who left the Falcons after their Super Bowl collapse to take the head coaching job of the San…

Both teams couldn’t hit nothing through stretches that saw them hurl 3s left and right. Dewayne Dedmon provided a spark for the Hawks as this was his first game after missing the first four with an injury. Dedmon was everywhere as he finished with 13 points, 13 rebounds and 5…

    Jermaine Dupri Celebrate 25 Years of So So Def

    If you’re from Georgia, you know that a lot of great music coming from the peach state. If you follow hip hop, you probably associate Outkast as being the GOATs in the A.

The newer generation has the likes of Young Thug, Migos, Future, Lil Yachty, 21 Savage and Cyhi the Prynce. What many people don’t know is that Jermaine Dupri put Atlanta on the map before them.

    Veteran Dodgers Blank Braves in Game 1

    The Atlanta Braves first postseason didn’t go as planned against the Dodgers. With the Los Angeles Dodgers having one goal in mind and that’s get back to the World Series, they ran through Atlanta. The Dodgers belted 3 HRs in their 6-0 win over the Atlanta Braves. If that wasn’t enough, the Atlanta Braves pitchers walked eight batters in the game. Atlanta only gave up five hits to the Dodgers, which is a positive thing as they head to Game 2 tonight. The Dodgers will have Clayton Kershaw, arguably the best pitcher of this generation against Aníbal Sánchez, who has pitched to a 2.79 ERA in seven postseason games. Can…

With Aquemini, many people are calling this their best album and one of the best ever in hip hop. A week after the release of the album, they release Rosa Parks as their first single. This was an incredibly dope, up-tempo track that was very successful. Later on, they were sued by…

    In what many considered to be a test for the Georgia defense, they came away with the 43-29 win over Missouri. The QB for Missouri, Drew Lock is considered one of the top QBs in this upcoming draft was held without a passing TD. Jake Fromm tossed 3 TDs to go with an INT, but he was inefficient throughout the game. Of course, the Bulldogs running game is the key as Holyfield and Swift ran for a combined 161 yards. Special teams and the defense came up huge as they both scored. Moving forward, Georgia will need to improve their overall play and discipline if they’re going to make it…

    Atlanta Braves Clinch NL East Crown

    For the first time since 2013, the Atlanta Braves clinched the NL crown. Many thought it would happen, but in a year or two because of their young talent. Coming into spring training, you could see that they were working with some young talent in the organization. Fortunately, my son and I had the opportunity to check them out against the Yankees in Florida at spring training. Earlier today, the Atlanta Braves defeated the Philadelphia Phillies to wrap up the division and head to the playoffs. It seems like the season would be special after their opening day walk-off HR. No matter what happens moving forward in the playoffs, we’re…
