Falcons Have Hired A Coach

Posted on: January 24, 2008 10:52 am

I am not a Falcon fan but I think any fan of the NFL has to feel a little compassion for this franchise. I know nothing of Mike Smith other than he was defensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has said his number one priority is to establish the running game,"My goal is to build a well-disciplined, hard-nosed football team that will be able to run the football on offense and stop the run on defense," Smith said. "I've always believed that's what makes championship teams."

I certainly hope he does that and I sincerely hope he gives Jerrius Norrwood a chance to shine. I think that one of the most disgusting things about the Falcons last season was that Norrwood ended up with a 6.0 yd per carry average but never even averaged 7 carries a game??? Warrick Dunn is no longer suited to be a starter and should take a back seat to a kid who seems to have unbelievable talent.

I hope Smith is successful and brings the falcons back to respectability. Because lets face it the things that have destroyed that team, well I think every fan in the league could say "there for but the grace of God go we".

Thats fine you just keep thinking that, but we both know you made a horrible mistake and you are going to cry like a baby when he becomes a superstar next season.

I do have to admit that the main reason I am interested is I traded for Norrwood last year in my Dynasty League and if he doesn't start getting close to 20 carries a game I am screwed.
