Devonta Freeman beat out fellow second-year player Ra'Shede Hageman in the Falcons' version of "Jeopardy!" yesterday. The two were asked to name some of the assistant coaches currently on staff. "It's embarrassing. I don't want to talk about it," Hageman said. "We didn't know everybody's name. He knew some of the coaches, and I didn't." Hageman couldn't recall which coaches he missed on -- or at least he didn't want to say.
