Yet another massive mistake by McKay, Petrino and gang.

Leftwich has a painfully slow delivery, lacks mobility and is injury prone to boot. Frankly, Daunte Culpepper would have been the lesser of two evils.

Then again, what does Petrino care. He'll be out of here in two years. That's his work history.

At least he'll be able to add his name to a long list of college coaches (like Erickson, Riley, Spurrier and Saban just to name a few) that flopped in the NFL.

Can't we ever get anyone good? I think its mainly the defense in Harrington's case. they are supposed to cover and block him from tackling correct?

What took Falcon's management SO LONG!!!????

The first two losses have to be equally shared by the management of the Falcons (RICH MCKAY) as well as the offense! Don't blame it all on Harrington! Falcons management hired him!!!

Talk about a classic case of putting all of your eggs in one basket, and the basket was VICK!

Great, the next 2 years are gone. We need an owner who knows what football is all about. Almost every other team in the NFL did at least something to move their team in the right direction. I'm 27 and the Falcons have pretty much sucked my whole life. Get some players with heart. I'm sick of them making excuses. Last week they didn't make excuses, but couldn't explain why they suck so bad. GET SOME HEART OR QUIT!!! Typical of all Atlanta based teams. No heart in any athletes in Atlanta. By the way, no heart at the two major colleges in Georgia either. Excuses excuses...

Are you kidding me. I can replace Michael Vick. A scrambler QB should think pass first, and then he should be worrying about running. Look at greats like Steve Young.

Thank you, what they heck took you clowns so long. Every sports station in Atlanat has been saying get Byron.

But no we had to get our butts kicked twice. I'd rather have Byron with a bum knee than that fake QB we have know any day.

Now we need someone to catch the ball

Vick is not that good anyway, what did he acocomplish? ONE division title, big freakin deal! What the falcons need is 22 new starters. The whole team flat out sucks! Ok maybe a few guys could stay but they need help all the way around that damn football. If the O line could block, Harrington wouldn't be that bad, he is not a scrambler. If any of the defense could tackle they might have a chance. The Falcons need some team leaders that are passionate about the game, not the money. They need a coach with some experience, Patrino might work if you give him some players to work with. They need an owner who isn't in it for the face time. He should stay in his box. Maybe they should just forfit the rest of the season and just run sprints.
You sound like a fool, write like a fool and more probably look like a fool.
