  1. There aren't any implications, other than it gives OO and Jalen time to develop while also getting much needed depth. Capela is a monster rebounder who gives the Hawks a much needed imposing presence in the paint. I think the Hawks will get their money's worth while giving the young guys ample time to develop into solid starters.
  2. Ben Simmons suspended by 76ers after getting thrown out of practice In yet another dramatic twist in the Ben Simmons saga, the point guard has been suspended for a game by the 76ers due to “conduct detrimental to the team,” according to a statement released Tuesday. The suspension reportedly stemmed from an incident that occurred at Tuesday’s practice. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Sixers head coach Doc Rivers threw Simmons out during the early portion of practice, and the suspension was handed down after. Simmons, 25, will miss Wednesday night’s season opener against the New Orleans Pelicans. “I thought he was a distraction today,” Rivers said of Simmons, according to ESPN. “I didn’t think he wanted to do what everyone else was doing.” The 76ers suspended Ben Simmons (left) one game after head coach Doc Rivers (right) reportedly threw him out of Tuesday’s practice. AP Rivers said he expects Simmons to be on the court if the Sixers practice on Thursday. “I’m going to give Ben every chance to be part of the team … as a coach I have to protect the team first,” Rivers said. After a dramatic offseason where the 25-year-old requested a trade following a brutal postseason showing, Simmons returned to the team over the weekend. However, team reporters noted that Simmons looked lackadaisical in practice. Today, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported he was “not engaged,” and was subsequently thrown out. https://nypost.com/2021/10/19/ben-simmons-suspended-by-76ers-thrown-out-of-practice/?utm_source=url_sitebuttons&utm_medium=site buttons&utm_campaign=site buttons In all seriousness though, ever since that playoff series, dude has gone into a downward spiral. He's in his head. Simmons gotta decide where he wants to go from here. He keeps up the shenanigans, and that playoff series, heck that game in which he refused to take a layup at the rim, will be his legacy. In any case, go Hawks!
  3. Yes he does, he just has to keep working on his route running. But he's already showcased the speed that even DBs have issues covering. It was on full display in London.
  4. The O line has been playing better as of late, but a rookie would have still struggled behind it. Ryan is just so adept at reading coverages, anticipating openings, and manipulating the defense with his eyes and pump fakes that he's really still making the O line look better than what they are.
  5. Brady... it's really not fair the amount of offensive firepower the bucs have.
  6. I think Mac Jones is better, but whatever. That's two weeks away and I won't be around a TV or computer to watch it. I still think the Falcons will win--Miami's defense has been looking awfully suspect.
  7. A couple of teams have lost games this week because their kicker missed makeable field goals or extra points, like last night. The Falcons have not had that issue thanks to Koo.
  8. Yeah, that WSH game is so frustrating because the win was there for the taking. For all the (well documented) struggles this team is having, it really should have a winning record right now which is saying something. The Jets game shouldn't have been close.
  9. And as a result, Ryan is starting to connect downfield more often. Suddenly Ryan is now top 10 in passing yards and passing TDs. Just need the running game to catch up (which it showed signs of life against the Jets) and the offense will really take off.
  10. Remember when Colin Clownherd said Matt is Andy Dalton in a dome? I remember... Now Dalton lost his job to...gasp...Justin Fields
  11. Must be nice when your skill players don't fumble the ball inside the 20.
  12. Dude, you can't rush these things. You're being very naive and unrealistic if you thought you were gonna get a polished product even two weeks into the season. There are a lot of new faces in Flowery Branch and a lot of moving parts. If there wasn't consistent improvement shown week to week, then you could reasonably sound the alarms. But the team has clearly shown improvement from week to week, and now they're starting to translate into wins. At 2-3 with a bye week coming up and then the Dolphins afterward, the Falcons have a great opportunity to get to .500 and start building momentum going into the second half of the season.
