Dr. J In A Hawks Uniform, Matt Ryan Vs. Blitzes, And More Dale Murphy: Around The Perimeter

Hawks: Peachtree Hoops presents its list of Atlanta Hawks Christmas wishes, which curiously does not include this 1972 photo of Julius Erving in a Hawks uniform (ht Hoopinion). Dr. J practiced with Pete Maravich's Hawks and even played in a handful of exhibition games, but contract disputes kept the hands-down most entertaining twosome in basketball history from playing a regular season game together.

Falcons: I've always wondered why teams blitz Matt Ryan so often. If the Falcons are operating from the no-huddle and the defense is blitzing, I feel great about our chances. And now cruel demon math agrees with me, as math is a fickle beast.
