You'll get little argument from me about him being unwilling to put in the work that Belichick does. At least in the NFL. I just think he is not up for dealing with anything other than amateurs. He has a superiority complex, as clear as day. He gets very insecure and testy when he is questioned at all. Always talks down to his own fans (he did it at LSU, and still does it at Alabama) and complains about fans being entitled whenever they complain.

Well, some fans might be entitled, but it isn't his place to question the paying customers. All of this superiority goes away for him in the NFL, where he doesn't have the ability to control things, and he can't control the players, many of whom are richer than he is. This is why I never see him going back to the NFL.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Atlanta has a coach that took them to the SuperBowl and they want to get rid of him because the players their GM assembled lack fortitude as individuals?

Re: Saban to Falcons?

Saban has a chance in the next 5 years to be in the record books and become the winningest college football coach of all time (most championships of anyone, beating Bear Bryant). He's got Tua's younger brother already lined up and committed to Bama, and Paul Tyson, another prospective Bama QB waiting in the wings who has potential to be scary good as well. The money Saban makes at Bama is already on an equal footing with Payton and Belichek, $8 to $11 million a year, so he doesn't need to move anywhere for the money. What could possibly be the appeal or incentive, of leaving ALL THAT, an absolutely perfect situation for a coach, to go be with a mediocre 4-9 team in the toughest division in football? Makes absolutely zero sense.

If he never goes back to nfl my hunch was rite the move from LSU to Miami was shade to comeback to division rival Alabama that pays real cash. LSU will never give up 11 mil a year

Re: Saban to Falcons?

He already makes significantly more than the highest paid NFL coach.
Why on earth would he give that up???

Re: Saban to Falcons?

So it seems that Atlanta United are the most successful team in Atlanta pro sports history. Managing to do in two years what the Falcons have not done in 53 years.
Up by 2 with 40 mins to go and they managed not to choke

When he becomes the Atlanta coach will he take Jimmy G and Malcom Butler from the Saints too?

Season ticket holder and was at the championship game.

Told all of my friends I'd be back in 2 months to get the second trophy, and reminded the Falcons fans that football team lost more games than the futbol team
