  1. I don't mean just some fans; I see AJC writers on FAZE Boogie, and it is 2 losing seasons mean the FALCONs must be at the lowest point in franchise history. Hold yer heads up, TRUE FANS. I am against pushing QUINN out. Do ya know of any hire that would instantly make the BIRDS fly high? New blood seems like a good idea just because ya think it could not be worse. Someone replaces Quinn, and you get another losing season for 2020. New blood in front office, maybe; new blood in the assistant coach ranks, maybe. Blank is likely to show confidence in Quinn. Did you hear it first here? Did ya soil yer jammies as I typed it?
  2. For some stupid reason I was more excited than usual for the start of the season. We kept hearing about all these good picks and our line will be better and our defense healthy with Danny boy running it. A huge disappointing empty bag is all the fans got this year. The season is over and anyone thinking something else is dreaming. If we get a new coaching staff **Insert whomever*** will you have high hopes for this team or be thinking we are several years away for the new scheme to “gel”? I certainly want Quinn history and et al, but will this team have to suffer growing pains? That is my biggest concern.
  3. http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/23318957/atlanta-hawks-coach-mike-budenholzer-agree-part-ways The Atlanta Hawks and coach Mike Budenholzer have mutually agreed to part ways, according to league sources. The 2015 Coach of the Year Award winner had been the team's head coach since 2013.
  4. Since I'm on the edge of senility, it seemed to take me half a day to remember one word. The very articulate MIKE Smith used the word soon after he had been hired - "daunting." In regard to getting the FALCONS back to winning, he said "It is NOT a daunting task." We need to remember the wisdom of the previous guy as we stand behind the new guy. When asked if he was rebuilding, his very simple answer was "Every NFL team is rebuilding every off season." My quote may not be exact, but I remember. Do you? Dan Quinn is no more and no less rebuilding the Falcons than Super Bowl winning Bill Belichick is rebuilding his team. my questions for anyone who has read me thus far: 1 - Do you expect the Falcons under Quinn to do a little better than Mike Smith's last season OR better than Coach Smith's first? Remember there have only been, in ALL of Falcons history, only 3 coaches that ended with winning records - Smitty and Jim Mora, JR. under present ownership and Leman Bennet under the ownership of Rankin Smith. Dan Reaves took the Falcons to their only Super Bowl but ended his time with a losing record and was sent packing by Mr. Blank. 2nd question - Seems to me that most of the free agent acquisitions have been linebackers. If Quinn likes a lot linebackers, that's fine with me, but this greatly reduces chances that the number one pick will be another linebacker. Agree or disagree?
  5. Atlanta Falcons should avoid another Henning Thirty-two years ago, the Atlanta Falcons fired the best head coach they had ever had. Leeman Bennett had taken the Falcons to the playoffs in three of the six seasons he coached the team, but it was not enough. The Falcons had gone 52-99-4 in the first 12 seasons of the franchise before Bennett took over. Norb Hecker, Norm Van Brocklin, Marion Campbell and Pat Peppler all had failed, while Bennett went 46-41 from 1977 through 1982. Comparatively, the Falcons should have built a statue for Bennett instead of firing him. Dan Henning was picked as Bennett’s replacement. Henning had been the offensive coordinator for Joe Gibbs and the Super Bowl XVII-winning Washington Redskins. Henning was the hotshot assistant coach in the NFL, destined to get a head coaching job. Instead, Henning was a disaster. He ended Steve Bartkowski’s tenure as Atlanta’s quarterback, and the Falcons went backwards instead of making progress. Henning was 22-41-1 between 1983 and 1986. Ask any Falcons fan, and they’ll tell you that firing Bennett was a huge mistake and mainly because his successor was much like the first four coaches in Atlanta’s history -- a failure. Now fast forward to today, as the Falcons are trying to replace the best head coach they have ever had. Mike Smith deserved to be fired, but not if the Falcons kept around the man who hired him -- general manager Thomas Dimitroff. Arthur Blank is making a mistake in keeping Dimitroff, who constructed the roster that led to two dismal seasons. A clean sweep was necessary, but for some reason, Dimitroff is still around. The Falcons lost out on Rex Ryan, reportedly because Ryan did not feel Dimitroff was in his corner during last week’s five-hour interview. It seems they are now only considering current NFL assistant coaches, hotshots who seem destined to get a head coaching job somewhere. Maybe Todd Bowles, Teryl Austin or Dan Quinn -- the reported finalists -- will make a great head coach. Maybe we will apologize to them if they are successful for doubting their ability in the first place. Remember, not many people knew who Smith was when he was hired as head coach in 2008. He had been Jacksonville’s defensive coordinator, and much like these coaches, he was one of the hot names on the coaching candidate board. But there is one difference. Seven years ago not many people cared who was hired as Atlanta’s coach. The Falcons had just come off the worst season in their history -- with a scandal involving quarterback Michael Vick and a less-than-one-season stint of head coach Bobby Petrino that left fans numb. It probably wouldn’t have mattered who got the job, as long as it was somebody brand new. Blank said he needs Smith’s replacement to get the team where Smith had failed to go -- the Super Bowl. He needs the next head coach to take this team to the next level. At the same time, and let’s be honest, Blank also needs someone to excite the fan base, which will soon be asked to write a big check for a personal seat license at the new dome. That’s why Ryan was such a good candidate. He could have possibly filled both requirements. Now the Falcons are evidently left with these assistants. The search firm Blank hired obviously has not come up with a better candidate who has head coaching experience, so he’s left to choose from the flavors-of-the-month. Maybe they’ll be fine. Maybe they’ll be the next best head coach the Falcons have ever had. But don’t blame some fans who remember the 1980s and hope the next coach won’t be the next Henning.

  6. Look at his resume A former RB and RBcoach with the knowledge he has aquired coaching WRs should understand both facets of the game. He has coached under and with some great and successful minds the league has seen. His coaching has been exceptional so far since he has developed our WR roster spots into a deep well of talent. From Julio down to DJ13. Our WRs love their coach and they play with an attitude to win. The years under the Brown's and Dolphins and the only two blemishes that he has on his resume. But those two teams were extremely unstable from top to bottom beyond the past few years.
  7. "I'm Calling you Out" a weekly segment brought to you by the FalconsManhood. Keep it classy folks, just imagine you could call out anyone in a positive or negative way (negative for the other team) and post it here.
  8. "____" I'm calling you out! Plug in whoever it is you want to call out and leave a brief message why. It can be anyone that you would love to call out if you had the chance and could do it safely from your computer lol. "Mike Smith" I'm calling you out! It's time you show us what exactly it is that you do for this team. I expect to see an improved o-line and a team that is playing pissed off for the rest of the season.
  9. Jaguars are puking at the thought of Mike "full of" Mularkey running thier team. http://forum.jaguars.com/index.php?showtopic=700061 Quote of the day "Ew, I hope the other candidates are better than this"
