On The Red Zone

Thursday April 25 2013

Today on the show:

  • During the first hour of the show, Tony made the statement that Atlanta was the big winner when it came to the new College Football Playoff. He said this because Atlanta was selected as one of the semifinal sites along with the Fiesta, Rose, Sugar, Orange, and Cotton Bowls.

  • Tony made the point that The Chick Fil A Peach Bowl is the only bowl from the group that is not an older bowl that has already hosted BCS Championship Games. This is a huge win for the city of Atlanta and in the future Atlanta should be in the running to host the championship game as well.

  • We spent the majority of the show we dissected the NFL Draft and what the Falcons should do tonight. Tony, Hans, and Doug all agreed the Falcons should look for a good CB in the draft that could possibly play immediately. Hans said in order to draft a CB that can play immediately, the Falcons must trade up to get him. Some names the guys threw out were Desmond Trufant and Dee Milliner. In order to draft either, Hans said the Falcons will need to trade out of their 30th selection.

  • We went deeper into the draft in the second hour and asked the question to Tony, which QB does he like best after watching them all in college? He mentioned a QB he likes is Tyler Bray out of Tennessee. He said Tyler can make all of the throws and has the arm strength to be a good QB in the league.
