Don’t call me Miss Cleo but I sense a rematch for Super Bowl 54. Sometimes in sports rematches make for Cinderella stories and I believe Atlanta is primed for a win. This year the Atlanta Falcons have one of the most talented rosters you can have. Starting with the head coach, Dan Quinn, from top to bottom it is hard to find a weak link with this team.

 Quinn’s record since joining the Falcons is 36-28. The Falcons have missed the playoffs twice in the four years he’s coached the team. Which means that in this upcoming year Coach Quinn must reach the playoffs or he runs the risk of being replaced.

The reason Atlanta will be in the Super Bowl this year will be because no other team has the receiving core they have. Julio Jones is unquestionably a Top 3 receiver in the game, if not the best, followed by Mohamed Sanu and Calvin Ridley. All three of these wideouts could be number one options on other teams which means that Matt Ryan has an abundance of weapons. Also at the tight end position they have Austin Hooper, who became a pro bowler last year. He finished with 71 catches for 660 yards and four touchdowns. His 71 receptions were fourth in the league at his position. Last year the Falcons suffered major injuries on defense but the worse one came from the running back position, Devonte Freeman. Atlanta ranked 27th in rushing last year and that will change this year with a healthy Devonte.

I believe the Falcons will defeat the Patriots because they must redeem themselves from losing in the Super Bowl a few years back. The teams in the AFC haven’t shown they can stop the Patriots which is why they’ll represent the AFC. This year the NFC is superior but the Falcons are right there in talent with any of its competitors. With everyone back this year the offense will click and put up 28 points and find a way to hold Tom Brady to 24. But every year it comes down to one person … Matt Ryan. Too many years he throws an interception, fumbles, or takes a sack at the worse possible times. No more excuses this year. Atlanta will win the Super Bowl in South Florida.

If not, Atlanta should flat out release Matt Ryan. It’s time.

Recently NASCAR made the controversial decision to ban Old Dixie, the Confederate Flag, from all of their events.

“Today’s despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism,” Wallace says.

“Over the last several weeks, I have been overwhelmed by the support from people across the NASCAR industry including other drivers and team members in the garage.”

“Together, our sport has made a commitment to driving real change and championing a community that is excepting and welcoming of everyone.”

“Nothing is more important and we will not be deterred by the reprehensible actions of those who seek to spread hate. As my mother told me today, ‘They are just trying to scare you.’”

“This will not break me, I will not give in nor will I back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe in.”

NASCAR also issued a statement saying the org. is “angry and outraged” and have launched an immediate investigation.”

This heinous act comes after the race was delayed due to rain and a plane was flown over the track with the Confederate flag in protest of NASCAR’s decision. Also weeks before, part-time racer Ray Ciccarelli decided he would not return after the 2020 season in protest.

We are sure this noose is also in response to Bubba’s decision to wear Black Lives Matter paraphernalia, but we support his stance wholeheartedly. We hope NASCAR does a proper investigation and the person or people responsible are found.

No NFL Teams Have Reached Out to Kaepernick Since His Workout

We really wish we could say we are surprised to report this, but no NFL teams have reached out to Colin Kaepernick since his workout last week.

We really wish we could say we are surprised to report this, but no NFL teams have reached out to Colin Kaepernick since his workout last week.

Kaepernick definitely showed he still has the skills, form, and shape to play in the NFL, but that has not seemed to lift their exclusion of him.

As of Sunday, Kaepernick is still looking for a roster spot. According to the ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Kaepernick’s team sent out footage of his work out to the 25 franchises that weren’t present for his session at Charles R. Drew High School in Riverdale, Georgia. The teams haven’t extended any offers.

Following his workout, sources claimed that teams were interested in moving forward with Kaepernick. Initially, insiders speculated that it could take weeks for him to anchor a contract. Now, it’s rumored that nothing is expected to be presented to the quarterback.

Kaepernick decided to forgo the NFL orchestrated workout in exchange for the session that was held in Riverdale. When it was first presented to the public, Kaepernick was scheduled to work out in front of 25 NFL teams at the Falcons’ practice facility in Flowery Branch, Georgia. The NFL also promised to send footage of his workout to the other franchises that weren’t in attendance. But Kaepernick cited issues with a liability waiver and media availability as the motive for him to move the session to a venue that was nearly an hour away.

The NFL released a statement following Kaepernick’s decision that claimed it was informed of the move at the same time as the media and it was “disappointed that Colin did not appear for his workout.”

The venue change had a polarizing response NFL fans and analysts. ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith and the Panthers’ Eric Reid went back-and-forth about the topic after Smith stated that Kaepernick’s motive was to merely “control the narrative.”

Whether Colin is picked up or not he is still a hero for Black and Brown people everywhere who have been victims of police brutality. This man simply took a knee in protest. All we can do is shake our heads and in the words of Phaedra Parks say, “Fix it Jesus.”
