Brian Billick Says Atlanta Is The Best Job Because...

I honestly think this roster has some young defensive talent on it right now. Hageman may be pro bowl level, and these young safeties look good. Even Motta was coming on a little before his injury. Tyson Jackson and Soliai are very good DL, they just haven't been utilized properly, have no edge rushers or LBs to compliment them. We are pretty solid at CB with a young soon to be pro bowler there. I actually think the defense could turn things around quick with a few select pieces. That #8 pick hopefully has an edge rusher waiting for us.

Next year coaching staff will shut all of the Smitty apologist up because the defense will be light years better with the right coach in place

Let's see Geno, Emo Cutler, Kap or Ryan. Too easy... Ryan's the guy if thats the pool you're choosing from. A year ago I would have had a harder time choosing between Kap and Ryan. However It seems like Kap has regressed.

They took away Kaps playbook and tried to turn him into something he isn't and they play in a very tough division, along with a dysfunctional FO just like ours lol

I don't see that Kap has regressed. He just wasn't very good to begin with. It didn't take defenses long to adjust to what his game plan was and his arm is about as accurate as a boomerang.

Hmmmm

1. Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons have what any prospective coach wants first: A franchise quarterback in his prime. Matt Ryan did not play well in Week 17, but he was a top-10 quarterback all season. The Falcons have one of the best wide receivers in the league, a young left tackle in Jake Matthews, and a great young cornerback in Desmond Trufant.

There are plenty of problems on the roster, especially on defense. But the Falcons are in good shape at a lot of the high-leverage positions. Just as important, the Falcons have generally been a well-run, patient franchise under Blank. It's an organization that is not afraid to spend money to win. General manager Thomas Dimitroff has made his share of misfires lately, but he was named the "Executive of the Year" twice by the Sporting News. You can work with him.

The icing on the cake in Atlanta: You are taking over a talented team coming off two losing seasons. There is room to grow in a lousy division. The pressure will not be as intense as it is in places like ..

I have thought about our position as being an ideal situation for a new would-be HC for just those reasons. And with Blank keeping TD (for now) was probably a good move on his part to provide a good foundation and to give his two-time Executive of the Year some needed experience in showing what he can do during a time of coaching transformation, something that he's not yet had to endure.
