Wow... didn't even make it a full season...
Is there some sort of link?!??
Thank ya sir!!
It must have been Blank's fried chicken comment......
It's all over NFL.com and NFL network, confirmed.
Cam Cameron is next
Can't blame him. ATL is a mess.
Exactly... Talk about a no-win situation. I almost felt bad for the guy.
But for the Arkansas gig?
When I saw this I immeadiatly thought "He must be going to Michigan", Arkansas never crossed my mind.
The day after your barn was only 2/3 full on a Monday night and your star QB gets 23 months in the pen, your HC leaves for college...it's gotta suck to be a Falcons fan this week.
I dont get it. They had the 3rd or 4th pick in the draft locked up. Easy to get at least Brohm or Matt Ryan. PLUS 2 2nds. A decent defense + a decent offense thats only missing a couple people. A good coach would have turned that team around
I'm thinking something happened internally in Atlanta or Petrino may have received some offer from Michigan or Arkansas.
I think he's doing the right thing and don't blame him at all. The Falcons are a mess and are going to be a mess for a long time.
This probably means the end for Chris Redman (yet again).
Look for the Falcons to take a huge hit this year and deal a lot of players and get as many draft picks as possible over the next couple years.
Brian Brohm must be pissed.
Not real suprising.
And I don't blame him.
i expect Rich McKay to be out of there soon as well.
I still can't quite figure out how we managed to lose to the Falcons this season. IMO, it was one of 2 games where they just went through the motions and/or they took us out of our gameplan. The other being in San Diego.
It's games like that always remind me to not get too ahead of myself and expectations of the Texans.
Furthermore, the Texans still haven't logged a true quality win this year.
This 3 game stretch is going to give a really good indication of where this team is.
Atl is the loss that sticks in my craw more than any other.
When you are a .500ish team, optimism and pessimism swing like a pendum ... sometimes weekly. That's the way it goes when your team is at that stage of development.
I don't qualify wins as quality or not quality necessarily - although I understand the concept that a win over the Colts is 'better' than a win over the Dolphins. But they all end up counting the same in the standings and if you win half your games, you're in the middle of the pack in the league in terms of quality. The most frustrating thing is the Division record. Tennessee is way beatable this year and they got in our heads for some reason.
I think I have a good idea where this team is. They are 7-9ish without the services of their starting QB, CB, RB, and WR for most of the year. And that's more a reflection of coaching/motivation and player buy-in than talent/depth. I think it's a reason to be optimistic.
