I guess this is what happens when you already have neutered your current GM and have a coaching search being led by an owner whose core competency was selling hammers while watching 80s and 90s coaches on TV before he bought a team :dang:

Report: Falcons talking to Schottenheimer

Having been burned by glib younger guys like Mora, Jr. and Petrino, I guess Blank recognizes hiring an old guy like the first guy he fired (Dan Reeves) may be more in his comfort zone.

What does it say when coaches that are known for disicipline want nothing to do with your team?

In Blank's defense, I really think Cowher's deal with his family is 2 years off to have an easy payday on something he surprisingly appears to enjoy doing & is doing well (subject to the Redskins or Giants job opening up:smile:) and Parcells is simply a weasel.

But I also think a strong coach is not going to put up with Blank being a Jerry Jones wannabe who goes down to the sidelines for the 4th quarter of games, schmoozes players directly in contract negotiations, and meets with the HC every week.

Blank needs to hire a good football CEO and turn over the keys to the car - living in Atlanta and watching the Falcons under the ownership of Rankin Smith and then Blank gives me an appreciation for the Rooneys that someone not exposed to a totally dysfunctional operation cannot have.

What's next? Dennis Green?

I can see how their season would end....Falcons 2-14, Dennis Green: the falcons are who I thought they were! :toofunny:

Schottenheimer leading the falcons doesn't sound bad at all. that team needs immediate help any way possible, and Marty should provide that

Hmmm... I can think of another guy that needs to do the same.
