The last thing the Atlanta Falcons need is Greg Knapp at offensive coordinator

Sark's biggest problem is his inability to adjust - note how our offense can never come back in games because the offense cannot make adjustments when an opposing defense is beating us a certain way.  Note that it took almost 2/3 season for him to realize that Schraeder was not performing like his prior years and replace him.  Note that our offense played well through week 9 against the Redskins but when opposing defenses learned to play us differently, our offense collapsed until maybe this past week or 2 (way too long to adjust to the new coverage).  Note that it took almost a whole season for Sark to supposedly adjust the playbook from the way Shanahan had it.

Perhaps we can find an OC who is a quick adapter and that this offense can quickly adapt back to its 2016 levels.

You would think having a person like Gregg Knapp helping, would point out some adjustments Sark needs to make.  I mean during the 1st half of the season, people were crediting the offense on Knapp rather than Sark.  Some people even want him to be the next OC, but he is on our staff today and is experienced and capable of providing suggestions to Sark.  Just like we have many prior GMs on our staff, we have prior Coordinators too, so it appears NOBODY in the coaching staff has an idea what to do.

I agree that Knapp is a terrible idea.  The guy does not have the fire and in any aspect of life one must be hungry and open to change in order to succeed.  

What about Art Briles?  He's probably not getting another shot in college any time soon, but I think he could bring something transcendent to the NFL.  We are absolutely loaded at WR, so why not spread em out and let MR2 eat?  80%/20% pass v run -- with penalties and the way the game is called, this is the future of winning.  Briles knows how to do this and will be hungry to distance himself from the biggest sexual assault scandal in sports history by doing something great.
