Default Falcons Offer Parcells VP Slot?

As further evidence that you should never say it cannot get any worse when it comes to the Atlanta Falcons, there is this latest rumor:

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank has put a full-court press on Bill Parcells to become the team's vice president of football operations, according to multiple sources.

Parcells could accept or reject the job as early as Wednesday, the sources said, and he is giving it serious consideration.

Parcells would not become Atlanta's new coach but sources say he would be authorized to hire the team's next coach, as well as re-organize the personnel department. He also could hire a new general manager if he and Blank agree that one is necessary.

What coach of any stature will come to work under Parcells?

Rich McKay needs to go as GM, but Blank should consider selling the team if this is his idea of how to fix this mess.

Amazing the series of happenings which are blowing up the team now.

Cowher said he wouldn't go there. I don't blame him. However, he is exactly what that team needs.

Yeah, Parcells said "I am probably going to do it" a little earlier.

Hiring a 66 year old who was burned out in Dallas is just what the Falcons need - first it was trying to give Cowher total control - now Parcells apparently is hired.

Blank's idea of where to find talent to run his team aparently consists of watching the network pre-game shows.

If Parcells had turned him down maybe he was planning to make an offer to Jimmy Johnson or Ditka.

This Falcons franchise is entering the Raiders Zone when it comes to hiring & personnel decisions.

After reaching an agreement to become executive vice president of the Falcons a day earlier, Bill Parcells backed out of the deal Wednesday, according to team owner Arthur Blank.
