We’ve tried this before, but now we’ve re-committed and are ready to give you guys a daily dose of Atlanta sports links. Every morning at 8, we will have several headlines from each of the teams we cover here on ATL All Day for you to read over, and also throw in some of the stories that you might have missed on the site from the day before.

Here you go:

Here is the write-up of the three players who were non-tendered yesterday. Fred Owens and Chris Headrick wonder if sweeping changes are coming, following after the hiring of several new coaches.

D. Orlando Ledbetter writes about Matt Ryan battling through sacks and hits to help the Falcons come away with a win against the Bills ($). Ledbetter also wonders if the Falcons run defense is going to be strong enough to stop Eddie Lacy and the Green Bay Packers. Dave Choate of The Falcoholic writes about five things that we learned about the team after the Bills game (including Roddy White transforming the offense).

Apparently, Mike Budenholzer needed some help to find the visitors locker room in San Antonio ($).

One of the Bulldogs top recruits (four-star defensive tackle Dontavius Russell) de-committed from the school a few days ago. Check out another edition of Inside Georgia Football with Coach Richt. Dawg Sports looks back on an injury plagued Georgia football season.

Yellow Jackets
Senior defensive end Jeremiah Attaochu was named ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week after tying Georgia Tech’s career sacks record against Georgia. Attaochu was also named to the All-ACC second team while teammate Shaquille Mason was named to the first team. Georgia Tech is predicted to go to the Music City Bowl in Nashville and play Vanderbilt in these FTRS projections.
