g-dawg Posted September 13, 2010 Share Posted September 13, 2010 I keep thinking that Mike Mularkey needs to go but you cannot fire your OC at the beginning of the season. But can the Falcons afford to wait? Abraham is a year older, Gonzalez is a year older, and Michael Turner is 29 years old(or 28?)......while the corps of our team is young we have some key pieces that are at the end of their careers. Who knows what 2011 brings w/ possible work stoppage/lock-out?Obviously fired or not fired you cannot totally phase out the Mularkey offense at this point of season. Bill Musgrave is highly thought of at Flowery Branch, around the NFL and he is a former NFL QB so I gotta believe he would try and make the Falcons offense more "QB friendly" and sophisticated.Heck, if Musgrave did nothing but impowered Matt to make more decisions on his own, and throw in some more sophisticated pass plays than the Mularkey system of drawing them up "in the dirt" - Falcons would have to be better off.Musgrave would have the 2010 season to audition for 2011 as the OC - if he succeeds, great. If he fails, then Falcons can hire someone w/ pedigree as a QB friendly offensive mind in 2011. Arthur Blank just has too much invested to watch this go belly-up. Falcons offense is underachieving and I think will continue to do so under Mularkey - even if it gets better than Sunday - and I'm sure it will - I still don't think it will be "good enough" to do damage in playoffs.
