I like all of these except 7. I wanted Dorsey but I'm not an SEC homer like many around here. This has a couple of chuckle-worthy ones though.

Maybe my memory is bad, but I don't know who was complaining about Dirk Koetter. I'd have taken a stack of bricks over Mularkey.

Genuine excitement was rare. Most folks were either complaining about the hire because Jacksonville had the 32nd ranked offense the previous year, or they were just like "who? meh. i don't know who he is, but he can't be worse than mularkey."

There were plenty of complaints. They were pretty understandable too, in my opinion. Jacksonville had the worst offense and it seemed like Koetter only got the job because Mike Smith worked with him before. Likewise Malarkey went over to head coach the Jags last year. There was some concern that it was just buddies getting each other jobs rather than us trying to find the best replacement at offensive coordinator.

In retrospect, Koetter was a good hire. Anyone is better than Malarkey though, lol. Using the screen pass and not being a coward who concedes games before they happen is common sense.

Its like looking back at the past 15 years of my many years of being a Falcons fan.

Everything is dead on except for #12 because I don't have a Twitter account.

I'm not that big of a Homer once someone leaves College they don't get affliated by that team in my mind anymore. I hated Tim Tebow at Florida BIG TIME, but now I feel bad for the guy not going to lie, and even Matthew Stafford loved him at GA, but thing is he's got to show up soon because I know his backs about to be against the wall fairly soon maybe not like Mark Sanchez, but it will begin to start creeping up on him.

Most of those don't apply to me at all. Guess I lose the "My fanhood is bigger than yours" game.
