Someone On Twitter Reporting Rumor On Spags To Falcons Over Phi

82 posts in this topic

Theres a guy on twitter who is currently saying "Rumors: Spagnuolo and the Falcons have mutual interest for the DC position. Could be very likely if Falcons give Spags Asst. Head Coach role"

So, basically his "source" is that the reason Spags hasnt joined Philly is because he wants to be the Asst HC, but Morningweig is that right now, while the Falcons do not have one. Combined with other reports that Spags would be interested in the Falcons anyways, that sounds good.

My one concern is that if Billick is hired as the OC, it would be obvious that he would want the AHC also. Hopefully they can work something out so that Spags can keep the AHC to lure him in, but Billick wil still want to join (we know he'll probably be gone in a year or two as a HC for another team, but the 2 years would greatly improve our offense in the meanwhile)

(twitter name is @scar988, hes followed by Ledbetter and Jay Adams so maybe hes actually somewhat relevant)

PRAY for Spags or Nolan!

spags/clements. Clements doesnt want the HC position. Dude's 58. If we hire him as OC he's gonna spend his career here if he excels.

This is my position as well.

Billick is a super bowl winning head coach.

I dont think he needs the ASHC title on his resume. If Billick were to come here it would be because he would rather be a coordinator than deal with the headaches of being a HC.

His gig @ NFLN is too sweet though, IMO.

scar988 is the name of a poster who was here back in the day. He came back under another username. scar988 was one of my favorite posters back in my early days.

who will be the first to start a thread entitled:

Spagnuolo to the Atlanta Falcons

I started the first Edwards to Atlanta thread when he signed, but we know how that has turned out so fardry.png

people think Spagnuolo to PHI just because he was there for 8 years. that doesnt mean anything though.

How many coaches really go back to their old team?

I also thought I read his exit from PHI wasnt exactly rosey?

I think any team looking has as good a shot of PHI as long as there are some peices to work with on the DL.

There's a guy?

What guy?

Football guy?

Media guy?

Or just some guy?

Who exactly is scar988?

It's Scott Carasik. He has a mock draft website, and I sometimes have seen his mock drafts up on other sites like walterfootball. I'm not sure how he would have "insider" information like this, but crazier things have happened in the reporting world.

No disrespect to you or him but basically that says he's just one of the guys, like us? Someone not in the know?

I forgot about Clements; if Spags got the AHC and we got Clements, that'd be awesome. Billick is good too.

any combination of Billick/Clements/Martz and Spags/Nolan will make me happy at this point. Just not Dirk or Schottenheimer please.

And thats why I labeled it as "Someone on twitter" - rather than a Media/factual report. But I did say he is followed by Jay Adams and Ledbetter so MAYBE he is somewhat relevant.

Of course, at this point I would believe some random guy on twitter over Ledbetter and the AJC anyways.

None taken, but some guys here are more in the know than they will let on. I don't know if scar is though.

I wouldn't be surprised. Castillo is still there. Spags wants to be DC and nothing else. The AC title would just be the icing on the cake and put pressure on Smitty. The OC will have autonomy over the offense anyway but Spags will have free reign over the defense, with Smitty just helping. We have the talent to have a dominating 4-3 defense. We just need the mentality and scheme and Spags brings both.

I would say that the odds of some internet/basement guy would get info on Steve Spagnuolo before Adam Scheffter is about "slim and none".......

hope its true - but I doubt it - this guy is just guessing, or worse, just making it up.

Mike Smith is one of the lowest paid HC in league . Wonder why would Spags come here over Philly or NYG ( where he can be HC in waiting once Coughlin retires)
