Atlsport Posted September 9, 2011 Share Posted September 9, 2011 It seems as though he is coming up on the peak time for taking the team. Haven't most of the recent (if not all time)SuperBowl coaches been with their teams only a few years, usually five or less before making it to the SuperBowl? There's a few guys who are early birds so to speak, Whisenhunt, Caldwell, Tomlin, Bellichick even the Falcons own Reeves who make it within two years of being with a team. Then there is peak time, which is usually about three to five years, which is probably the mean. That's followed by what has to be very few who make it in their sixth year. Besides, It doesn't seem as though a coach would stick around long enough to make it after the sixth year. I didn't look this up, its from recollection so if any of you researching types care to discredit or confirm I'd be curious to see how accurate that is. If that's accurate then the good news is that, Smith's best chances for having the Falcons play for the title is this year or next. On the flip side, if he can't get the team there by the 2012 season, then his chances start to drop and he probably wouldn't be the coach to get us there. Thoughts?
