Secondly, the Atlanta Hawks are getting set to face the Eastern Conference favorite in the Boston Celtics. The Hawks added Dejounte Murray in the offseason to help defensively, but the Hawks have become better as a team defensively. Jon Chuckery talked about how there are multiple guys stepping up their game defensively for Nate McMillan. Lastly, the Atlanta Falcons fired Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff after the 2020 season. Quinn was not only judged by performance on the field, but he was also judged by the people who were drafted to this team.

    The “quarterback controversy” for the Atlanta Falcons has made fans and media forget about the litany of other problems with the Falcons. The Falcons' defense is one of the worst in the league by several metrics. The pass rush that this city has longed for is still missing. There are questions at several other positions. It also seems that even though the Falcons can run the ball really well, the offensive line is awful in pass protection and that also has to change. Secondly, Aaron Freeman of Locked on Falcons joined the show to discuss why Desmond Ridder should get his shot this year. As well, when Justin Fields shows up to Atlanta this weekend, how much of a hit it will be that the Atlanta Falcons passed on him in the 2021 NFL Draft. Finally, the College Football Playoff rankings have told us that it is only possible that four of the current top seven teams have any shot to get in the playoff.

    Arthur Smith and Dean Pees have a very interesting task at hand when the Chicago Bears come into town. Pees hasn't faced a mobile quarterback like Justin Fields all season.

Jarvis Davis and Tenitra Batiste talked about what the Falcons will have to do to stop Fields on Sunday at Mercedes Benz stadium. Also, they discussed Michael Harris and Spencer Strider finishing 1-2 for National League Rookie of the Year. An award named after the late Jackie Robinson. Secondly, the Atlanta Hawks went into Milwaukee and spanked the Milwaukee Bucks last night 121-106. Trae Young and Dejounte Murray did their usual biddings helping the team win, but De'Andre Hunter was the story leading the way with 24 points.

Ken Rosenthal reported that the Atlanta Braves are NOT trading Ronald Acuna Jr. Jon Chuckery talked about how ridiculous it is that Rosenthal, who's part of the blue check mark media, has to report on the obvious.

    Arthur Smith has made it abundantly clear that he's not changing quarterbacks. At least, not now. He's also made it clear that if it were as simple as changing one player to win games, he would do it. Smith is a good coach and he's well aware of the limitations of Marcus Mariota, but he's also aware of the limitations of Desmond Ridder and that's also part of the equation. Next, the Atlanta Hawks got a good win last night in Milwaukee and DeAndre Hunter was the leading scorer. This leads me to think that Hunter is a key part of taking the Hawks to the next level. Finally, the College Football Playoff Committee will put out their latest rankings tonight and all signs point to no major changes coming.

Also, they discussed Michael Harris and Spencer Strider both vying for the National League Rookie of the Year award. Secondly, when putting together this roster for the Atlanta Falcons, Terry Fontenot brought in veterans to help balance out the roster that he knew would feature a lot of young players. Marcus Mariota and Lorenzo Carter were part of the veteran movement. Jarvis Davis and Tenitra Batiste talked about whether or not it's time for Dean Pees and Arthur Smith to welcome a much-needed youth movement. Lastly, as we get close to the Holiday season, the crime rate tends to go up along with said season in Atlanta.

Lastly, the Atlanta Hawks will try to bounce back from their loss to the Philadelphia 76ers when they take on the Milwaukee Bucks. De'Andre Hunter has been relatively healthy in 2022.

    The Atlanta Falcons will get set to take on the Chicago Bears this week and while it will be tempting for many fans and media members to try and re-write the history of the 2021 draft and how the Falcons should have taken Justin Fields, don't do that. If you want to make the argument that Atlanta shouldn't have taken Kyle Pitts, that's fine. But don't make it about taking Justin Fields because if you look at the players that were taken after Pitts, Fields isn't remotely close to the one they should have taken. Next, the Tennessee Volunteers and the LSU Tigers are the two most overrated teams in the country right now. They are hanging onto one game each - their win over Alabama. I don't think there's a case for either of them to belong in the College Football Playoff. Lastly, the Atlanta Braves will collect some hardware today as either Spencer Strider or Michael Harris will win the NL Rookie of the Year award.

I know people want to see Desmond Ridder, but that's not going to happen as long as the Falcons have a shot at the playoffs. Ridder's ceiling is no higher than Mariota's but his floor is much lower. The Atlanta Hawks got a win over the depleted Philadelphia Sixers.

    The Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Dean Pees got very defensive when he was questioned about the team's third down conversion issues. Pees took a poor tact in trying to ask the media to focus on the positives with the defense. The numbers don't say that things are good, so why would Pees expect anyone to try and make them sound like they are good? Secondly, in college football, both the Tennessee Volunteers and the LSU Tigers are going to be big Alabama fans this weekend as a third loss would knock their victory over the Tide down some. They are also rooting for Texas to knock off undefeated TCU to open the door for a one loss team to get in the College Football Playoff. Finally, the Atlanta Hawks were disappointing last night in their loss to the Utah Jazz as Trae Young's shooting woes continued.
