Falcons HOPEFUL Offseason


Recommended Posts

Here is my hope for the Falcons in 2008:

Coach: Hire either Bill Cowher or Marty Schottenheimer. We need a proven established coach in the NFL that will provide discipline and command respect from the players. I know "Marty Ball" may not be a popular choice, but the guy is a winner everywhere he has been. Obviously, the first preference would be Bill Cowher though.

Trades: Trade DeAngelo Hall to the Cleveland Browns for Brady Quinn straight up. With the emergence of Derek Anderson, the Browns can afford to trade Quinn. I think a trade for DeAngelo would help them as well.

Another trade would be to trade Alge Crumpler to the Seattle Seahawks for a second round pick. Tim Ruskell seems to like having former Falcons in Seattle (i.e. Patrick Kerney, Boone Stutz, Jim Mora)


Joe Horn- no big loss here

Byron Leftwich- worthless clipboard holder

Warrick Dunn- great human being, but getting too old

Wayne Gandy- too old

Morten Anderson- no explanation needed

Lewis Sanders- Jason Webster #2

Joey Harrington- no room
