Fire Mularkey Now


Recommended Posts

To late? I have to disagree I could call a better game then him

The Chiefs, Bucs, and Bills all fired their OC's before the season and ended up having terrible years, especially on offense. I don't like Mularkey either, let's make that clear. I think he's terrible, and runs a very basic and flawed offense. However, the Falcons have drafted and signed guys he wanted for his system (for the most part). They have been practicing his offense the entire offseason. Teams that change their OC's so late rarely have success the year they do it. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for firing a coach that isn't cutting it, I just think it needs to be done in the offseason or very late in the year when something isn't on the line.

While i agree it's not the ideal time to fire him I think it has to be done. You have to remember we have weapons on offense we are not the chiefs bucs or bills of last year

We do have some weapons, but we are not a stacked offense by any means. Yes this is probably in part due to him as well given on how he emphasizes getting recievers that are supreme blockers. I cannot remember a team that had playoff aspirations doing that and succeeding. Yes there are exceptions and I'm sure someone may find them. Still, they are not the rule and firing the OC at this time could ruin your season. Not ready to wave the white flag just yet.

getting rid of mularkey doesnt have to be a season ending decision. it seems as though most of you are under the impression if we get rid of him, we will bring in someone else that will totally change things up for the offense. but we dont have to get someone else off the street. we hand the position over to Musgrave. things will remain relatively the same. just better play calling. he cant be worse than mularkey

I'm not saying that Mularkey should be fired or not. My question is, if he goes, then who replaces him that is available? Does Musgrave have that good of a reputation as a genius calling plays? Yeah he coached under Seifert, but didn't he "resign" as OC from Seattle after like 4 games?

If not Musgrave, who else and why?

Good point, but the teams I mentioned earlier all promoted from within as well. None of those teams brought a guy off the street and their team did not only lose but the offense got worse. I do think that Musgrave (or whoever gets the job) has no choice but to make sweeping changes. Think about it, if he will keep things the same, what's the point of keeping Mularkey in the first place? The person who takes over usually wants to make his mark and either maintain his new job or impress to get a better one. I just don't think it is a great idea to fire such an important part of the staff so late in the game.

first off let me say just because other teams that changed OC performed worse doesnt mean it will happen to us. that being said, i know Musgrave probably doesnt want to just be a filler at OC. he is going to want to put his mark on the offense. but i dont think he needs to make sweeping changes. Smith's philosophy is still going to be run the ball but with musgrave calling plays, he will at least hopefully have the sense to realize that there may be times where the gameplan doesnt working. he will adjust to the game. and that, in theory, will make us a better offense.

I will admit that it is a bit disheartening when I can see things from my couch that apparently he can't.

I really think his motto is

"What is their strength? Let's attack it!"

Troy Polomalu is their strength and he runs

all over the field at will without us attacking

where he should be in that defense. There is a

weakness where he "should be" all game whenever he

leaves the area he is responsible for. That should

be something we could exploit going right at the

strength of their defense.
