It pains me to say this b/c I am a Falcons fan (also a panthers fan b/c i own a home in Charlotte)..but the best scenario would be to hire Falcons OC Mike Mularkey. You would have an offensive minded coach who could mold Cam Newton (who i pray the Panthers draft!!!) into what he helped create in Matt Ryan. Not to mention you would have a coach that knows EVERYTHING about a division rival (falcons) and is familiar w/ the division as a whole!
Man this is ACTUALLY one of the smartest ideas I have ever read. Im not saying he's the best canidate but damn we know he can mold a qb from previous experience. Knowing your division inside and out is a major plus.
I'm sorry, I know I'm new here and everything, but this is the dumbest poo I've ever had the privilege of reading.
How can it be dumb Atl offense is extremely similar to ours. We are now looking for a young qb with a running game intact all we need is a solid TE to become an safety vavle for a young qb. We recievers intact not the greatest but we can win with them.
How is it dumb to attain a Coordinator as a head coach who has been in the NFL for a number of years, and has helped lead an organization from a 4-12 record to 3 winning seasons and 2 playoff births in 3 years (to include a 13-3 season consisting of wins over the Aints, Bucs, Ravens, Packers; not to mention #1 seed in NFC) ?????!!!! Not to mention you want to draft a QB, don't you think an Offensive-minded head coach would help mold that young QB?! Please explain your insane notion that this would be stupid...
And if you're referring to my desire to draft Cam Newton over Andrew Leaf, I submit this to you...Look at the teams Joey harrington jr has faced. Look at how he struggled against Oregon....lemme say that again...OREGON...not some defensive powerhouse!! 2nd half stats in that game for Andrew Leaf...0 TDS 2 INTS, BALL GAME LOST!!!! Now take a look at what Cameron Newton has done against ELITE DEFENSES like LSU, Alabama, South Carolina...CMON!! Oh and please dont bring up what Luck did to a defense that couldnt stop James Madison (VA tech)!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Im not sure if Luck is the man or not we can't predict that but Cam has definately seen MUCH better defensives but I think either qb if drafted can benfit from a very good offensive mind HC like Murlarkey
