I really have not seen much posted on these boards about Emmitt. JMO, I think this is a great choice for our interim head coach. Mr. Blank is rewarding Emmitt for his long time of service with the organization & he is a person that has been actually deserving of a shot like this. I know his chances of landing the gig full time are slim to none, but he is getting to show what he can do & hopefully, not just for the Falcons, but for Emmitt who is a great guy, I hope it goes extremely well. Maybe this is the stepping stone that he needs to propel him to a HC or at worst a DC job that he deserves.

emmitt does not want to be a head coach. he is doing this just as a courtesy to the falcons.

Emmitt is doing what is right for his boss and his orginization. Loyalty, and shows his character!!! The choice was great- Pick a coach, that has been here for the long haul, and will be here for the long haul... a coach that RESPECTS and KNOWS the players, and a coach KNOWN and REPECTED BY THE PLAYERS!!!!!

kudos for the choice!!!!

He may not want to be a HC, but he deserves the shot if he did. I've never spoken to him before, but I do know that there are players on both sides of the ball that have tremendous respect for him and even if it's just 3 games, I'd like to see him succeed.

Yeah I agree it is hard to believe a guy with this much experiance has never been given a chance as a head coach, I think he has never had any interest in being an NFL head coach.

Look at his resume he went from being the Eagles D Coordinator to become the Falcons DB Coach.

After learning a little bit about his background and the support the players are giving him I have to agree. I will admit, when they mentioned his name as the interim head coach I was like...Who?

I feel like I can safely say HALL is now our franchise player. Why not have HIS coach as our interim coach. With Hall and Milloy ( great vet leader) satisfied with the coach, I think it helps the team gel back together.

as a side note, I wold love to hear from Grady about his take on BP!!, unless Grady was let go because of Zimmer.someone please interview GRADY!!!!!!

It's sad that his accomplishments as a player aren't better remembered. It's like Champ Bailey becoming an interim coach in 2042 and people saying Who?

but the point is if you go to atlantafalcons.com he clearly states, "lets not make this anymore than it is. i do not want to be a head coach for another team. I am 64 years old"

dont get your hopes up people. he is doing this as a[courtesy
