The Anger For This Continuing Abysmal Team Situation Should Be Directed At One Individual Only

The anger for this continuing abysmal team situation should be directed at one individual only....

And that is

Mr Arthur Blank--- he can snap his fingers and make immediate substantial changes

he has had more than ample previous proof that he needed to make immediate firings of at least Mike Smith (and others) and for whatever ridiculous reasons Arthur Blank has refused to do so despite obvious evidence to the contrary

So while I can be mad at the usual buffoons/suspects

Mike Smith, Thomas Dimitroff, Dirk Koetter and Nolan

My anger and yours to should be pointed at Arthur Blank as he could just make a decision to take action and he doesn't

I'm tired of the pathetic time management gaffs. I'm tired of watching this soft-azz zone defense cough up yards, long bombs and leads. I'm tired of watching an offense that goes into hibernation after getting a few points ahead. I'm tired of watching the opposing team diagnose our plays because we only have four plays. I'm tired of the drama, which is only going to get worse as we get curb-stomped in the next four games. I'm tired of Smittyball, Smith pressers and Smith's long-dead Process. Surgical strike, Artie. Shock and Awe-ll Gone. Rock the Casbah, even though Sharif he won't like it.

Arthur blank firing Smith right now will not make this team better overnight. It will only please those of us who want him gone.

If it puts someone on the sideline who won't make game-losing decisions, then how does it not make this team better overnight?

Mike Smith is now causing us to lose games. He is a detriment and a liability. If you cut him loose, it is addition by subtraction as far as I'm concerned.

Mr. Blank is a class act. Firing the coaching staff is unproductive and would reek of a shitbag organization. Everyone one the planet, every single one, knows Smitty is done on Black Monday. There is no reason to humiliate a man who has brought unparalleled success to this moribund franchise. Smitty may suck at a Dyson level the last year or so, and clearly something happened, but he is the best we have EVER had. He deserves to go out with some dignity. ****-canning him now is a move by a classless sorry assed franchise. We have thankfully moved passed that.

I thank Smitty for allowing us to hold our heads high and dare to dream we could compete, and win.

How do you know an interim head coach won't **** up and do the same. Spare me the no one else is that dumb response. Unless you can show me a crystal ball displaying this team getting better overnight, you can keep it altogether

Taking from Lee Corso, not so fast....

I think there are benefits of letting him go now. Give the interim job to someone who isn't scared of his own shadow, and will coach with confidence and with less conservatism. If you are trying to evaluate who on this team can play and who can't for next year, it's best to change it up and put these guys in a position to show what they have. The current coach is coaching scared and the team will not play for him anymore, so it would be ashamed to dump some of these underachievers when it could be that in the right situation they really can play in this league.

What part of his post didn't make sense to you?

When your coach is making decisions that are, without a doubt, costing the team games, removing him is "addition by subtraction."

You don't need a crystal ball to understand that removing a cancerous situation is a positive step.

When it comes to evaluating talent, having an interim head coach would still not mean much because more than likely there will be someone else at the helm as the new head coach next season.

first and foremost, Smith ain't going no where during the season so all these threads don't even make sense. Secondly, point out to me where I said his post doesn't make sense. You can interpret it however you want, really doesn't matter to be honest.

What point would it be to evaluate for next season when it's possible the current GM and head coach won't be here. Who is here now probably doesn't mean anything to the next group, whoever they may be. A new staff may send some fan favorites packing regardless of how they finish the season.

This season is already into week 13.

Not really that long until this awful season is over so a change now is kind of worthless.

1: Need to evaluate the talent? Yes and it won't happen with Smith as the HC.

2: Still a possibility to win the division? Yes. Something that will not happen when the HC is costing the team games.

3: Is there a potential HC replacement already on the sideline? Yes. As interim would be the time to evaluate them.

4: Does the team have a winning record and sitting close to clinching if Mike Smith doesn't cost the team at least 2 games? Yes. It's a cut-throat business. Let the season finish in a more positive light where the fans can truly concentrate on what we have moving forward. Or, we can just sit and stew in it like Smith supporters want and be just as clueless then as we are now in terms of our talent and who to bring in to replace Smith.

I really think Arthur Blank should have got rid of Mile Smith during the off season last year so

I agree that most of the time you do it in the offseason - however - I think in this case firing Smith and putting someone in as interim is not a bad idea and it is not the result of just this year

It's been a long time coming and frankly he should have been fired in the off season after losing the nfc championship game at home to SF in such pathetic patented Mike Smith 2nd half meltdown way after being up 17 points

Remember our other playoff showings under mike Smith

Losing horribly to the Giants and AZ on the road

Getting our as-ses kicked at home as #1 seed to the 6th seed packers. A 2nd half meltdown that almost cost us the Seahawks game and the creme de la creme of all Mike Smith 2nd half meltdowns

The loss to SF after being up 17 points at home because we had another Mike Smith I'm too scared to win 2nd half meltdown

And of course the 4-12 misery last year

No - I disagree-- it's been a long time coming and he should have been fired multiple times before this as a "good" coach with a killer instinct would have taken the same talent pool and done much better than he did

But that's the answer. LITERALLY nobody else is that dumb. Mike Smith has created an entirely new level of stupidity.

Firing him right now makes this a better team on Sunday.

firing Mike Smith now will not make this team any different. Dirk will still be calling offensive plays, Julio will still drop catchable passes, kroy will still suck, worrilow will still get beat in coverage, Harry still won't be able to get separation on deep throws, hester will still have brick hands, Stephen Jackson will still do a 2 step before hitting the hole.... Did I leave anything out?

This Falcons team is bad.

By the Falcons still being in contention for the division is probably the reason why Smith has not been fired yet.

If the Falcons make the playoffs and lose the 1st game, Smith could easily go the way of Marty Shottenhiemer(who had the Chargers as the AFC's number 1 seed when he was fired) if they fail to win another postseason game.

There have been many interim HCs who took over and still had an awful team in the end.

I can almost guarantee that only winning the Saints and panthers game u den an interim coach will be enough for alot of these guys.

I'm not the one lobbying to keep the second half meltdown coach which brings the team NOTHING.

When Smith is gone, everyone knows they're playing for their jobs.

You can blame talent all day long but as of right now, this team at the very least, has enough talent to be 6-5 and on top of the division comfortably.

Waiting out the season gains nothing.

Yes, but when you have spent an entire game fighting and clawing to overcome all of those deficiencies you listed, and finally put yourself in a position to win despite everything, you will no longer have the dumbest ******* coach in the NFL standing there to ruin it all at the end.

Addition by subtraction.

I totally disagree. Mike Tice And Mike Nolan have been head coaches. Keith Armstrong should be a HC candidate. Koetter has coached in college and was mentioned as a potential HC candidate in 2013 before our 4-12 catastrophe.

Mike Smith has cost us 3 games this year, and almost cost us the Panthers game with his abysmal clock management and situational football acumen.

We are more likely to win this division with someone who wants to be a HC, possibly our future HC, since Mike Smith apparently didn't seem to care enough about his job to learn from the Lions debacle.

Smith needs to be gone yesterday.
