Although it may be noble in spirit, a coach who quits does not make himself look good. Smith may even believe it is time to go, but he will most likely stay until he is fired because quitting sends a message that he cannot handle the pressure when things get tough, and that is not a good reputation to have if one wants to coach in the NFL again.

Being allowed to resign instead of being fired is done many times as a favor in the ordinary world, but in a few instances, like sports, sticking with it until you are dismissed looks better on you.

Expect Smith to stay until Blank tells him to go, and really, I have never expected him to resign. It is just not something done that often by coaches, if ever.

There is always a first time for everything, and besides does he really expect to get another head coaching gig? I think AB just didn't want to pay the salary of say a Dan Reeves again. hence the Mora/petrino hirings. Including MS, none of these guys deserved to be head coaches in the NFL. Has a head coach ever left Atlanta and went on to be a head coach somewhere else?? ( in the NFL ) It would be better for all involved if he were allowed to step down now ( insert any # of realistic reasons ) than to get fired at the end of the season IMO.

This is what's bothering me about Smith. He's too stubborn to admit he made a stupid mistake and cost us the game. He makes all these empty statements that the loss is on him, that it's ultimately his responsibility, but he refuses to admit to the basic mistakes that matter. Any 10-yr old can see that he made a blunder, and he still refuses to admit he made a mistake. This is how you lose control, respect, passion, and urgency in your locker room.
