If you were Arthur blank and you just saw a QB that sat on your bench

Not really, I mean he built his entire playbook around a QB that is sitting in Jail right now so that really isn't an issue in my opinion. Plus this is a team that was built by Jim Mora Jr. Not Bobby Petrino. Also it must be mentioned that Bobby Petrino was mentioned during the game today vs. the Rams as saying he has no plans of leaving and loves being the Atlanta Falcons Head Coach......:P

yeah but didn't Saban say the same general thing? I'm not saying he's leaving, I think he'll stay, just playing devil's advocate.

At this point in time, no, I wouldn't be asking anything.  It is the coach's responsibility to coach the team through the course of the year, and an effective owner should not be meddling with how the coach is guiding the team.  I will go out on a limb and say that Petrino probably knows just a little bit more about the game of football than either Blank, you, me, or anybody else blabbing on this board about how "dumb" Petrino supposedly is.

Actually, if it were up to me, which it's probably a good thing it isn't, Harrington would have never gotten another snap except by injury. Redman would have been in a long time ago, because I knew after his first and second start that Leftwich wasn't worth the money I paid him, and JH could never carry a team to more than 3 or 4 wins in a season. The fact that JH didn't need to be on the field was obvious early on. So, all I'd be asking Petrino is "What took you so long to make that decision?"

Good point! We all seem to think that we know what's going on behind the scenes just by reading the paper and watching the games on Sunday. If we were truly smarter than BP, we would be coaching and not him. I still have faith in Bobby, but it does seem like he makes some bonehead decisions, especially lately...

Well, if they start Redman again let's see if he is consistent! Playing well 1 1/2 quarters don't mean jack. However, I do agree Redman seemed to have more command of the offense, made quick decisions, and threw the ball better. Still, this was only 1 1/2 quarters.

Also remember Romo sat on the bench for 4 seasons, Brady for a couple of seasons, Delhomme was on the practice squad.... No, I don't think Blank or any other person who understands football will question why Redman was on the bench all season.

I have tried my absolute hardest to give Petrino the benefit of the doubt, but with every game that goes on, I lose more and more confidence in him. It's not the losses, this isn't the most talented team. It's more the choosing of Matt Prater, Two pitch plays with Dunn on short yardage, interaction (or lack of it) with players, and numerous other questionable play calls. I really hope I'm wrong, I want anyone associated with the Falcons to succeed, Blank on down. However, it's really hard to believe in him after all that I've seen.
