My NFL team is the Green Bay Packers, for a variety of reasons. But I try to like the Falcons as well, since I grew up with them. That they’ve hired New England’s scouting director as GM is the first piece of good news I’ve heard about this team since Arthur Blank bought them. Now if we can just get a coach who is not a conceited dickhead (Parcells) or a job-jumping scoundrel (Petrino), we’ll be in good shape.
The draft is going to reveal a lot about where this team is going. If they reach and draft a QB in the first round, they have no idea what they are doing. They can take Brohm or Brennan in a later round and be set. If they take Jake Long or somebody to build from the lines, they’re in good shape.
