(WVUE) -

In this edition of FFF we talk who should start at quarterback for LSU, soccer in Atlanta is a real thing, and best pizza joint in NOLA.

FOOTBALL

Start Myles Brennan the final three games of the regular season Coach O. I hear fans wanting a 10-win season, it will help with recruiting, and double-digit wins looks good going into 2018.

You know what looks good going into next season, a quarterback with experience. Danny Etling is gone soon, and Brennan could be the guy next year. Let's see what he can do right now.

LSU should beat Arkansas, Tennessee, and Texas A&M with either quarterback. Might as well be Brennan. Coach O doesn't agree.

"Danny is our starting quarterback. Danny Has done a good job for us. We're going to finish the season, Danny is our quarterback," said LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron. "Myles would have to beat Danny out on a play-by-play basis, practice. He would have to play better in a game, he hasn't done that yet. I would not give Myles the starting quarterback job just to get ready for next year. We got a lot of things to play for. We're taking it one game at a time, and we want to have a very good year. Right now Danny is our quarterback."

LSU needs 5 or 6 wide receivers in the 2018 recruiting class. Right now they have two. If they see what Brennan can do right now, then they might line up to sign come December.

Also, I thought "O" was an ace recruiter, he doesn't need 10 wins to get his guys. He can get them with 9 wins also. Plus, he'll have a QB with experience to pump up, that's if he goes with Brennan the rest of the way.

FÚTBOL

Atlanta United started their first season in Major League Soccer with a lot of fanfare, but many questioned would soccer be a "big deal" in the South. Well the answer is yes.

71,874 attended a match at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, a MLS regular season record. Then the squad made the playoffs, and they broke another record. Drawing 67,221 for a first-round game, the most ever for an MLS playoff match. 

Atlanta United is owned by Arthur Blank, who also owns the Falcons. Crazy to think, but his expansion team could go further in 2017 then his football squad. We'll know soon enough.

FOOD

Listen, everyone has their favorite pizza joint. You can try to convince others to come over to your side, but people like what they like.

Some might prefer: Theo's, Mo's, Tower of Pizza, Pepperoni Ray's, Slice, or Domenica. I give the nod to Pizza Delicious.

The Bywater joint is fantastic in every way. The pizza is on-point, the garlic knots with marinara, oh my. Plus, I really dig the outdoor patio.

After the meal, head over to Crescent Park to walk off that epic pizza.
