Sitting At 8Th


Recommended Posts

I am not too knowledgeable about the game or the team, but still I am a fan.

Here in JAPAN I do a little gambling, but generally I know nothing about

gambling on football. I have heard this expression related to

gambling on sports - "over, under" Has something to

do with something being close to a 50/50

chance of happening.

This to me is more fun than a mock draft.

Tell me I am wrong, but I say there is a near 50 percent chance

that the Falcons trade UP on draft day. The only motivation would be

to please fans that want whomever that monster pass rusher

may be. Since that would be THE motivation,

I say under (that is less likely to actually happen).

I say there is a near 50 percent chance that the Falcons trade DOWN

on draft day. The only motivation would be that they could still

get a pretty decent pass rusher 6 or 8 spots down,

I still say under (that is less likely to actually happen).

Hold on! Here is your big chance to disagree:

Staying at the 8th pick, there is a near 50 percent chance

that the Falcons do not take any defensive player.

I say over!!!

Have you paid attention to your new offensive coordinator?

Does he want a running game, a running back?

You are hearing this from a TECH fan.

I nominate TATF to be the future historical owners for the National Todd Gurley Museum of Excellence.

We will dawn a statue of him with the inscription "Gurlie to Atlantie" carved into the base.

Visitors from all over the world will come marvel at our glorious museum, tourism in Atlanta will surely skyrocket. We will then use the profits to improve our roads and fund better public transportation, all thanks to Todd Gurley.

VOTE GURLEY 2015

Just to clarify...

"Over/Under" is used for quantifiable thresholds (e.g., wins & losses, or total rushing yards), and is not about "50% chance of happening."

So an example for the draft would be

"over/under on the number of RBs selected in the top 10 picks is .5"

People who think ATL will pick Gurley at 8 would take the over.
