Will the Falcons fire Mike Smith? Who will replace him?

December 22, 2014 Chris Jervis 1

Despite a tough win Sunday that knocked the division rival New Orleans Saints out of the playoff hunt and kept their own playoff chances alive, the Atlanta Falcons are expected to fire Mike Smith as head coach, according to reports. Whether the Falcons will also fire General Manager Thomas Dimitroff is unknown. If the Falcons…

The Nick Markakis signing

December 15, 2014 Chris Jervis 0

Last month the Atlanta Braves traded talented young right fielder Jason Heyward to the St. Louis Cardinals, creating an opening in the outfield. I wrote at the time that the deal was a sound business move, even if it was one that saddened me a little. That trade led to speculation about who would play…

College Football Playoff Picks

December 7, 2014 Brent Blackwell 0

Because there weren't many games this week, I'm putting off a full 1-128 ranking of FBS teams until after next weekend, when Army and Navy will complete the regular season. I will, however, go ahead and apply my ranking process to the 6 teams pretty much everyone agrees should be in the mix for the…

College Football Rankings: 12/1/14

December 1, 2014 Brent Blackwell 2

Every Monday I publish my own college football rankings for all 128 FBS teams. The rankings are based purely on what has been achieved so far, rather than any perception of team strength or likelihood to win future games. While it was a fun rivalry weekend, it wasn't a particularly eventful one. Ole Miss won…

November 24, 2014 Brent Blackwell 0

Another weekend is in the books, which means it's time for our Monday routine: college football rankings for all 128 FBS teams. As usual, they're ranked based on what they've accomplished, not necessarily how good they are or how likely they'd be to win future games. I should note that I'm now considering wins over…

Falcons fall to Browns 26-24

November 24, 2014 Chris Jervis 1

The return of suspended wide receiver Josh Gordon, timely plays by quarterback Brian Hoyer, and inexplicable clock management by Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith all contributed to the Cleveland Browns last second victory 26-24 over the Atlanta Falcons (4-7) Sunday afternoon at the Georgia Dome. Cleveland (7-4) welcomed back big-play receiver Josh Gordon from…

A Review of The Jason Heyward Trade

November 21, 2014 Chris Jervis 5

As you have probably heard, on Monday the Atlanta Braves traded RF Jason Heyward and RP Jordan Walden to the St. Louis Cardinals for SP Shelby Miller and SP prospect Tyrell Jenkins.  The Jason Heyward trade was the first significant transaction of the 2014 off-season, and signaled the first major move in the Braves' 'minor…

The Jason Heyward Trade

November 21, 2014 Brent Blackwell 0

It usually takes me a few days to really process trades and major organizational moves. With the requisite waiting period over, I think I'm finally ready to talk about the Jason Heyward trade. The team acquired Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins and gave up Jordan Walden in addition to Heyward. I'll take a look at…

November 18, 2014 Brent Blackwell 0

It's been a busy day here for us at Outfield Fly Rule, what with a pretty big baseball trade to process and wrap our heads around. Fear not - I haven't forgotten our Monday tradition of providing complete college football rankings in terms of what teams have accomplished this season. Let's delve right in. Might…
