The Biggest Loser

Calling the Atlanta Falcons a professional football team is being generous. Well it looks like we have a new coach.
"My goal is to build a well-disciplined, hard-nosed football team that will be able to run the football on offense and stop the run on defense," Smith said. "I've always believed that's what makes championship teams."
I wish him well but unless he has the power to fire everybody and start over I am afraid he will wind up like every other coach that comes to this town. There is an attitude that permeates the Falcons. You can see it in the way they play and the way they act. One notable exception is Warrick Dunn, who is truly an outstanding young man. The rest of the team view football nothing more then something that produces a paycheck, a very good paycheck, for the disruption it causes in their lives.
Well, welcome to Atlanta coach Smith, but I wouldn't put that resume away just yet even though you signed a 4 year deal.
