Falcons: The Falcoholic is stunned and perplexed to discover cement-handed halfback Michael Turner plans on catching a lot of passes this year.

Hawks: Hoopinion shares some numbers on the biggest year-to-year decline in three point attempts by a single player. The winner, of course, is our very own Smoove.
