Falcon defense faces toughest test yet in Brees, Saints

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - Cornerback Brent Grimes knows the Atlanta defense must play a nearly perfect game to have a chance against New Orleans' explosive offense."The odds are against us, obviously," Grimes said Wednesday. "They're the No. 1 offense, but we've got a chance to make a statement."Unfortunately for Grimes and his teammates, the Falcons (6-6) lead the NFL with 49 plays allowed of at least 20 yards. Opponents are converting 46 percent of third downs, second-most in the league.Facing quarterback Drew Brees and the Saints (12-0) on Sunday seems to offer a worst-case scenario for ...

Extra arm in pen forces Church out

ATLANTA - The Atlanta Braves' surplus of late-inning relievers forced the team to part ways with outfielder Ryan Church on Tuesday.Church was designated for assignment by the Braves to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for reliever Rafael Soriano, who made a surprise decision a day earlier to accept salary arbitration.The Braves last week signed closer Billy Wagner and setup man Takashi Saito. The expectation was Soriano and Mike Gonzalez would decline salary arbitration offers and become free agents.Instead, Soriano is still with the Braves. The right-hander can't be traded before June 16 without his consent ...

Jackets to face Hawkeyes in Orange Bowl

MIAMI - Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz vividly remembers flipping his television one night last fall and instantly becoming mesmerized by Georgia Tech's spread option offense."I can't imagine trying to get ready for them in a normal week," Ferentz said.Luckily for Ferentz and the Hawkeyes, they'll have a month to prepare.No. 10 Iowa (10-2) will face No. 9 Georgia Tech (11-2) in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 5 in South Florida, a matchup of the Hawkeyes' 11th-ranked defense against the Yellow Jackets' 11th-ranked offense, the misdirection-laden option that blew Ferentz away when he watched the Yellow ...

Falcons fading fast after loss to Eagles

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - Mike Smith had more injured than healthy offensive starters by the end of the Atlanta Falcons' third loss in their last four games.That was only part of the somber news.The Falcons' 34-7 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday was the team's worst in Smith's two years as coach. The loss left the 6-6 Falcons on the fringe of the NFC wild-card chase.More reason for concern: Just when the Falcons can't afford another loss, the 12-0 New Orleans Saints come to Atlanta next week.Perhaps intent on countering the somber mood, Smith assumed ...
