On The Red Zone

Tuesday March 5 2013

Today on the show:

  • Just before the show started we had several early season college football kickoff times announced. The Chick Fil A Kickoff game at the Georgia Dome on Saturday August 31st between Alabama and Virginia Tech will kickoff at 5:30. Later that day, Georgia's game at Clemson will kickoff in primetime at 8:00. Kicking off the college football season on Thursday August 29th will be UNC/South Carolina at 6:00 followed by Ole Miss/Vandy at 9:00.

  • During the first hour of the show, we asked the question, if the Falcons have the opportunity to trade up in the draft, would you do it? Who is the one guy you would trade the 30th pick for? Hans and John cited the Falcons trading up to select Julio Jones a few years ago. Even though they gave up a lot they were able to draft a game changing WR in Julio Jones.

  • During the second hour at 1:18 we talked about Matt Ryan's impending contract situation. The Falcons are trying to resign him to a long term deal and we wondered, What is Matt Ryan's worth? With Joe Flacco getting over $125 million, how much should Ryan command? The guys both said he won't get Flacco money, but he will be just under that at around $100 million.

  • Finally, towards the end of the show Hans correctly predicted the Hawks would be blown out on yesterdays show by the Nuggets. Sure enough the Hawks lost big to the Nuggets as they wrapped up their west coast trip. Needless to say, Hans was very proud of himself for his bold prediction coming true.
