I Would Like To See This Guy As The New Falcons Head Coach...

Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles.

I know his name isn't being mentioned much, but that's one reason I like this guy, not to mention he's a defensive-minded coach with experience and a good track record over his career. I'm not sure if Bowles is on the Falcons coaching radar, but if he is, he should be the choice.

Thoughts?

Everything I've read about him is impressive. There's no denying we need a whole new defensive philosophy and leadership on that side of the ball, so that would put him in the forefront of the list. Yes, I'm sure he's on the list.

I see Bowles as being in the mold of a Mike Tomlin. Just seems like a guy who could bring a lot of toughness, attitude and focus, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Looking at the past couple of seasons in hindsight, I'm beginning to believe that defense does, in fact, win championships. I sure hope he's on the list.

The Atlanta Falcons can clinch a playoff berth with a win over the Carolina Panthers today, but once their season is over, they could be eyeing a Detroit Lions assistant as their next head coach.

Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin is expected to be a hot candidate for head-coaching jobs this off-season, and according to CBS Sports "it would be surprising" if Austin doesn't at least get an interview with the Falcons.

Austin, in his first year as an NFL coordinator, said earlier this month he "absolutely" will interview for head-coaching jobs should any come his way during the playoffs.

If the Lions beat the Green Bay Packers today to clinch the NFC North, Austin would be available for initial interviews during the team's playoff bye next week. If the Packers win, Austin would have to wait until after the Lions' wild-card game next weekend, likely against the Dallas Cowboys, to meet with interested teams.

Austin was named as one of the top three minority head-coaching candidates on a list of nine names the Fritz Pollard Alliance submitted to the NFL two weeks ago.

The 49-year-old has coached in Super Bowls as an assistant with the Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals and Baltimore Ravens, where he won a championship, and is considered a big reason why the Lions' have the NFL's second-ranked defense.

"I think he's ready (to be a head coach)," cornerback Rashean Mathis said told the Free Press. "He's the type of coach that a team can believe in. He's been around a lot of great coaches as well, so the cloth he's cut from is great, especially this yea

Seems like the majority of people who are voicing an opinion are leaning toward Rex Ryan. I don't have anything against Ryan, per se, however, I don't Ryan as a fit with the culture Arthur Blank is trying to create with the Falcons. I think Blank wants someone who will be able to coach without being the center of attention all the time. Bowles is relatively unknown and can come in here and run the ship without all the distracting hype that will undoubtedly accompany Rex Ryan.

Nice write-up on Austin.

A secondary specialist, but his blitz packages are highly effective and he took that D from middle of the pack to a ferocious #1 unit in his first year. Yea, he has great front 4 talent but can not hold that against him LOL. Seems like a young, hungry, new school type of coach that could be a real breath of fresh air and energy....

He intrigues me as well. The more I learn the more I like about him. Right now my top 4 candidates are Gase, Bowles, Quinn and Austin...... Can you imagine having a coach named Austin..... I would be able to wear my Austin 3:16 shirt again lol

Could maybe bring us the kind of quik, youthful energy burst that Tomlin brought PITT when they hired him

My guess is he is on the list of candidates, but not being approached do to NFL rules. Talking to the guys you can till then makes sense.

Todd is solid. Rex brings a lot of trash with him. He is a media magnet and can cause distractions for the team trying to wake up from a nightmare for the past 2 years.
