Wow, that's somewhat suprising.

Think he goes to Alabama?

He would be a nice fit. Personally I think Washington cans Willingham and he goes there.

He did say he'd go there, didn't he?

Wonder if that was the nail......

That's what he said he wanted. Well, now maybe he can get his wish fulfilled. Poor Tyrone, everywhere he goes it seeems like theres someone else gunning for his job.

Probably Shell unless Davis wants to prove Schefter wrong.

I wonder how much Vick had to do with it.

Vick is a trojan horse


they are gonna wait around, cutting wide receivers ... firing head coaches ... when the real problem is Vick.


a QB must be a passer first ... scrambling should just be a bonus.

They need to send Vick to the Fade. Falcons could win alot more games with Schaub.

Probably a bunch whether it was directly or indirectly. When you as an owner get dupped into paying a player more money than anyone in NFL history and it turns out he isn't very good somebody is going to take the fall.

At least now for the two or three Vick appoligist left in the world this will buy them a couple more years of excuses as to why he still sucks. "Uh, well he has a new coach and a new system so that is why he sucks and can't throw accurately or read a defense...". "Uh he is great but you just need to be patient cause he is just in his 7th season..." :D

Jim Mora Sr. is right.
Vick is a coach killer.

Ron Mexico is a coach killer.

No surprise here. I think Mora ****ed himself when he said on a radio show he wanted the Washington job.

Coach
01-01-2007, 12:46 PM
Frankly, if I was Mora, I would be relieved that I was fired, becuase who in the hell wants to work with Ron Mexico?

Schuab > Vick as a passer.

Dad was right and they will have a hard time getting a real coach in there when the quarterback is running the show so to speak.

L.A. Chieffan

Watching his presser on NFL network "...our coaching staaff will leave having the best winning percentage in Falcons history"
Yeah, 26 and 22 bang up job Junior. I think that says more to the previous coaches that what you did.

Agreed. Vick caused this, not what Mora said about Washington. There was speculation that Mora was going to get fired before he mentioned Washington, and I think Mora said that out of displeasure of his job security.

Vick should be put at RB or WR, and Schuab should be the starter at QB. It's time to wake up, Vick isn't fooling anybody anymore-- he is NOT a QB.

Or he might have set himself up exactly how he wanted...Get a nice chunk of change on a buyout, go get a job you really want and clean your hands of having to try and be the only head coach in the NFL to try and win without a QB on the field.

This dude really had a quick free fall. His first year there in 2004 they were 11-5 and won a playoff game.

Isn't Schaub a FA after the season?

I'd think he'll be a very hot commodity.

Best thing that ever happened to him. He doesn't have to lie all the time anymore.

Atlanta won't be any good until they get someone in there with the balls to bench Vick. Look at New Orleans. They got rid of Brooks and got a real QB in there, and what do you know - they have a great shot at the super bowl this year.

You are absolutely right, the only problem is the owner painted the team in a corner when he gave Vick that insane contract.

Vick has the tools, but the guy has an eggo that cannot be tamed. Schuab has only half the athletic ability, but he gets all the players around him to make the plays. The team responds to Schuab.

They should run a Vick-Schaub backfield where either could throw the ball on any play.

They've had Schaub out as a WR before. I've actually seen him catch a pass, which would put him instantly at pretty much the same lever WR-wise as Sammie Parker LOL.
