The New Coach

The Falcons promoted secondary coach Emmitt Thomas to be their head coach for the rest of the season today. A lot of people are calling for Arthur Blank to throw a bunch of money at Bill Cowher or Marty Schottenheimer, but I'd be happy if they just offered Emmitt the job for next year. Thomas had a great playing career as a cornerback and is a 2008 Hall of Fame finalist. He has been an excellent assistant coach for decades and really deserves a shot at a head coaching job. The players seem to respect him and the only way this franchise can go with him is up. He'd have to set the Georgia Dome on fire to do a worse job than Bobby. I'm frankly getting sick and tired of flashy hires by Blank and no established coach with an ounce of sense would walk into this trainwreck of a franchise anyway. If they had hired Lovie Smith in the first place we wouldn't be in this mess. Give Emmitt a shot, Art.

I can't resist one last shot at Petrino, though. Here's Bobby's official Arkansas Razorback theme song for the 2008 season:
