    In the Atlanta Falcons' attempt to rebuild their football operations, they apparently are considering becoming a sort of Chargers Southeast.....

    Sounds like this may kill some people hope of Schotty coming here next year.

    What the fuck would Schottenheimer do with the Falcons? They have no running game, and have been running a quasi 3-4 for a couple of years now. He may make that team better, but it will take like 3 years to see any real success if he goes there.

    But then again, it would take anyone that long to get that team turned around.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Marty is just a good coach, I think if the Falcons wanted to get somebody they'd definetly want a Vet. coach like Shotty rather than get a coordinator or college coach.
    Marty Ball would bring that level of knowledge and if not get them winning big time at the very least would right the ship down there in Atlanta.

    I actually find it refreshing that teams are going a different direction with respect to some of the new hires.

    I hate it when we keep seeing the same old faces get second, third, fourth chances.
    Out with the old, in with the new.
    That is how the game keeps evolving.

    You and I both...but I thought they might wait for Spagnuolo.

    I agree, thought he was also gonna get tagged.
    Probably something they saw in the interview made them change thier mind if in fact they were considering him.

    And Frazier still remains our DC, and it looks like we will have the same coordinators for more than one season. Good, Good.
