  1. Not adding much to the conversation, but I played with Des for three years at Furman. Really good guy. Ran a sub-4.3 in college and was ultimately drafted by the Chiefs. Has basically spent the last 20 years coaching, primarily in the SEC and ACC. Excited to see another Paladin in the NFL, considering we don't produce many draft picks.
  2. It certainly doesn't bode well that a big ATL is now on the header for AtlantaFalcons.com...
  3. Probably close, but I'm calling this an early concept... Why the logo with red talons on the jersey? This should be white. Why no real players trying on the uniforms? Why a two bit leak when you claimed heavy security? Why a red to black gradient? Certainly no focus groups were clamoring for that. Fingers crossed...
  4. Don’t forget Ito taking a crown of the helmet to the face.
  5. Agreed. I can't think of a single dominating win since the NFC Championship, beginning with that ugly 3-0 start in 2017. Let's be honest, they'd be 0-4 this season if Agholor could catch. Holding out hope that they can go back to the site of SB 51 and get a confidence building win.
  6. How could we forget "The Catch III?" This is just another chapter in The Curse of Brett Favre. #BountyGate
  7. It’s not just him. The general feeling in Houston is that O’Brien needs to go, as he has been the beneficiary of a very weak division over the last five years (Colts appears to be back, though). Fortunately, he had Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins, a weak schedule and a bonehead Frank Reich decision in Week 4 to get him a #3 seed and home playoff game. He’s no offensive genius. He’s a .500 coach with a 1-3 playoff record, but the Texans sell out every game and they just handed him a four-year extension after a 4-12 season. We could certainly do much better in Atlanta than another ex-New England coordinator that parlayed Brady and Belichick’s dominance into a bigger role for himself.
  8. No. The only creativity in the Texans’ offense comes via Deshaun Watson’s legs when the play breaks down.
  9. He’s getting looks as a Head Coach. This would have been a good week to interview coaches from teams with byes, and we were silent. Looks like the targets may be involved with Wild Card weekend. Nevermind: that applies to head coaching interviews. Still, with Taylor scheduled for three HC interviews, it will be quite a while before we might get to talk to him as an OC.
  10. There is also an open Special Teams Coordinator position. Maybe they’re targeting some candidates from playoff teams for that opening. Certainly don’t think they’re targeting Fisch or Lombardi for OC interviews, as has been lightly reported. Bieniemy is more likely to get HC interviews than worry about a lateral move, which would I believe would require permission from KC. Who else is a likely candidate in the playoffs?
  11. 1. Matt likes Dirk. 2. Quinn has faced Dirk-led offenses eight times in the last four years. Tampa won three of those games, while averaging almost 26 points (never under 20). Dirk had significantly less offensive firepower with which to work. Quinn, when hiring Shanny, spoke about how difficult it was to scheme against Shanny’s offense. I think he might feel the same way about Dirk after the last four years. 3. Also, Matt REALLY likes Dirk. Dirk may be the front runner.
  12. I was never sold on McDaniel as a real option. Drawing up plays is one thing. Calling plays is a completely different skill. As has been beaten to death in this thread, neither guy is being hired away to call the plays in their new role.
  13. The list of great coordinators who couldn't hack it as head coaches is too long to write. Not going to hold his head coaching record against him anymore than I would hold it against **** LeBeau, Norv Turner or Buddy Ryan in hiring for a coordinator role. Given his game management skills, I think Shanahan is likely to suffer a similar fate. Just because you can draw up a game plan, it doesn't mean that you can manage players and other coaches.
  14. My wife and I will be there (even though she's a Packers fan/shareholder). I told her last weekend that I was going to eat nachos out of her cheesehead at the Super Bowl. I haven't bought tickets yet, but I'm hoping that living in northwest Houston allows me to get a good deal late this week. We'll see what happens. Either way, I have no flight or hotel rooms, so I'm already ahead in that area. I mean, how many times do you get to see your hometown team playing just down the road in the Super Bowl? Looking forward to sharing in the celebration on Sunday night.
