Blog Watch 2009

Eric Williams tackles the question: What is the West Coast Defense? It's a phrase coined (on accident) by new secondary coach Tim Lewis, and it sounds like everything we've heard from Bradley and Mora about the defense this year: fast, hard, and disciplined.

Rob Rang's "Risers and Fallers" list. Among the risers of interest is FS Darcel McBath of Texas Tech, a guy who has been surpising scouts whenever he's had a chance. Pegged as a late-rounder, McBath could go in the middle rounds and might be worth looking at for the Hawks. That may depend a bit on how we feel Jamar Adams is developing.

Mike Sando digs into the mailbag and answers a question about the Franchise Tag. Early on, we had expected Hill to get the tag, but Sando is now doubtful. Will the Hawks let him test the market, or will we try to sign him before free agency begins? This should be an eventful couple of weeks.
