    Parcells to manage Falcons?

    Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank has put a full-court press on Bill Parcells to become the team's vice president of football operations, according to multiple sources.

    Parcells could accept or reject the job as early as Wednesday, the sources said, and he is giving it serious consideration.

    Parcells would not become Atlanta's new coach but sources say he would be authorized to hire the team's next coach, as well as re-organize the personnel department. He also could hire a new general manager if he and Blank agree that one is necessary.

    Blank has informed general manager Rich McKay that McKay will not return in the same role, even though the owner wants McKay to remain as the team's president, sources said.

    Blank's talks with Parcells evolved from an advisory role into a firm offer to rebuild his football operation, the sources said.

    I think it would be dumb for Bill to jump into that mess.
    That team is in turmoil, and it has some bad eggs that will need to be dealt with before the year is out.
    I feel for Emmit Thomas who I have always respected as both a player and coach.

    That smells of McKay not giving all the power to Parcells... Bill wants total control and somehow something made him feel like it was not going to be that way... my guess anyways...

    Bill is one of those nomadic type guys.. doesn't want to stay anywhere to long.

    Either way.. it is probably not the worst thing to happen to the Falcons... I would give Ron Wolf a call for a couple year position to set up a decent structure within the front office and some talent added to the roster. Then boot McKay out the door... Hard.

    He fits in with the Falcons.


    Parcells couldn't manage his way out of a paper bag.

    Falcons have the whole Mike Vick stigma and other bad news.
    Miami has had no expectations for YEARS unlike Atlanta who were used to Vick making there team alright.
    Falcons to the playoffs would be expected of Parcells, Miami making the playoffs and Parcells looks like a genius.
    Good move by Parcells.
