    From a professional athlete standpoint, I'm really happy he's found a place where he can continue his career while being paid handsomely.

    From a Hawks fan standpoint, I'm really saddened that all of this had to happen. It ain't right.

    Research I have seen is that even people trained in responding to an active shooter perform poorly unless the training is rigorous and maintained on a regular basis (like more than once a month). Otherwise, the "good guy with a gun" approach is likely to put the students in more danger, rather than less. We shouldn't be asking our teachers to become cops or to have to add weapons training to an already packed list of responsibilities. We all know what the answer is here.

    I've never watched a SOTU, and I didn't start last night. I'm not a fan of cheerleading displays.

    We've gotten a look at what our D looks like without Sherman and without Thomas, and until we've got a reliable option to replace their skills and their leadership, I don't like the idea of the team without them. Bennett, on the other hand, wouldn't fetch us much of anything, I don't think. His age and salary will already have teams expecting the Hawks to cut him rather than trade him, and his outspokenness on issues of race recently could scare away some less progressive owners/management.

    As for Lockett, I think he would fetch more than Bennett primarily BECAUSE he's cheap. He's got speed and is a deep ball threat, and if you can get that for a tiny salary cap hit, then I can see teams willing to offer a bit more. I'm not saying I want Lockett to go, but on a team that seems to be determined to get back to a 52/48 run/pass split, I could see them sacrificing a guy like Lockett to add maybe a 3rd rounder that could be used to move toward that run-first, run-often philosophy.

    Maybe controversial, but if there was a player on the team that I felt would be a expendable enough that we'd want to trade him for picks, but young and with enough potential that a team would give up a significant pick or picks for him, it would be Tyler Lockett.

    We're desperate for new blood at DE and LB. If they could squeeze a couple of 2nd rounders and a couple of 3rd rounders out of #18, I wouldn't complain if they spent all of those picks there.

    I'm intrigued by Norton. I imagine he'll have a good relationship with the players.

    I'm not sure what to think about Solari and Schottenheimer. I get that Schottenheimer hasn't had a great number of good QBs to work with and has made the best he could out of those situations, but it certainly doesn't represent a fresh, new take on offense. And I recall Solari being hyped as a guru back when we had him here in '08-'09, but a decade has passed since then.

    Trade down. With 18, you should feasibly be able to get a wealth of Day 2 picks. Enough to start working on the mass exodus of starters that's coming in the next couple of years.

    Last I saw it was definitely the Raiders game.
