The Falcons need to get rid of Petrino and Both Quarterbacks. Perhaps looking for one or two in the draft would make sense along with a better head coach the Falcons may actually have a chance in the next couple of years, but for now they have no chance at all.

ATL has one big coaching problem. The calls made on November 18 would get some high school coaches FIRED! Who in their right mind is going to pay to see such??

Just feel so sorry for Dunn, Norwood, and Crumpler. These guys could carry the team if they had any kind of an offensive line, and half way decent play calling. Also, feel sorry for the fans.

The Falcons are still paying the price of bringing in a coach to babysit Vick. Petrino is just over his head. Don't think he really knows what he is doing, and knows even less how to motivate pro players!

Tell me again why he started Leftwich??????

Petrino (or Blank pulling his string) put the black quarterback in only to try & keep the falcons NEW fan base.

It matters not if they win or lose, its sell outs at the stadium and $$$ that count...really sad situation.

Nice coverage by D-Hall on Galloway. And a BIG thanks to Leftwich for the fumble and interception. The Falcons are GREAT.

Harrington should have been the quarterback for the whole game. We could have won or not been beaten as bad. I hope Harrington is the quarterback for Thursday nights game. Harrington is the better quarterback.

then you give the reason for starting LEFTWICH & leaving him in until all hope was gone. HE was made a falcon because he is black & he was made started because he is black. BLANK just needs to go ahead & get a black coach & be done with it.
