A Look Ahead At The Falcons Schedule

By David Jacobs | November 2nd, 2014

The Atlanta Falcons have two very important divisional matchups coming up off the bye.  They currently sit at 2-6, which insome divisions would be good enough to start thinking about next season, but in the NFC South they are right in the thick ofit.  It’s very possible a 7 or 8 win team will win the division, which means the Falcons can put themselves in good positionif they can win their next two games. 

Atlanta Flacons

With several close losses, including their latest defeat, a crushing 22-21 loss to the Detroit Lions in London.  Their losses to the Bears and Giants were close going into the fourth quarter, but the team unraveled in the late stages of the game.  It will be imperative they don’t have similar tendencies down the stretch,otherwise many individuals on the roster and staff could be looking for new jobs next year.

Bulls Tickets Almost $400 On Average For Home Opener Vs. LeBron

By David Jacobs | October 21st, 2014

The Chicago Bulls enter the 2014-15 season amidst much change in the Eastern Conference. The perennial power of the past few years, the Miami Heat, lost their best player, LeBron James, during this past offseason. “The King” returned to his hometown team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, who also added power forward Kevin Love. So the Cavs went from a yearly Eastern Conference doormat to the expected favorites. Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers lost Lance Stephenson to free agency (Charlotte) and Paul George is out with a devastating leg injury.

Chicago Bulls

So the top two teams in the conference from last year have undergone significant changes. No change may be as big as the return of Derrick Rose to the Bulls starting lineup this season. The star point guard has played sparingly the past two years and is looking to return to glory this season with a slight new-look Bulls squad. Carlos Boozer has departed and in is Pau Gasol, the former Lakers star power forward. It is expected Gasol will flourish with Rose at the point, also enabling rising star Jimmy Butler and rookie Doug McDermott to perform at their highest level.
