It's a good thing CBS doesn't pass "opinion", or plain **** they make up, as news.

Re: Falcons owner may seek out big-name head coach for next year

Well, I hope they aren't suggesting Harbaugh (SF), for two reasons:

1) He will fire up a team & motivate them into a few championships before totally disenfranchising them down the road, but not before turning them into a decent team that could potentially rule the NFC South.

2) His alma mater desperately, desperately needs him as a HC! Phone home Jim, phone home ....

Gotta start with that General Manager...

If the Falcons hired a good General Manager, then I might worry if I thought I could actually do something about it...

I can see that happening. And I hope it doesn't.

Little to no success developing players. You can run on for a little while like that but eventually it catches up to you. We loss the game but our players are getting better; Hill, Lelito, Cadet are all making big strides. I can't think of one player for them they turned into a real starter.

I agree. I think the problem with the falcons is, the coach wants to build a "grind it out", "4 yards and a cloud of dust" ball control, no mistakes offense, but they have a GM that is building a high octane, down field, up tempo team.

That and he can't hit on a draft pick unless he throws in so much he can't miss.

Somebody on another forum posted today that there are only 3 starters on the falcon's offense that were drafted by Dimisomethingorother. And all of them were top 6 picks.

Their number 1 pick this year is graded as the worst offensive lineman in the league, at any position, back up or starter this season by PFF at -31.2.

Bring in Brian Billick to replace his Brother in Law, keep it in the family.
He will take the Falcons on a ride they will never forget!
