Should Arthur Blank Give Coach Smith A Home Depot Try-Out
From worst to first has become a cliche in the NFL, recently. However, going from first to last, with a 100 million dollar quarterback, seems to have a certain lasting ring, as well.
Arthur Blank, owner of the Atlanta Falcons has created his supportive style of presence in the NFL. Even fans of other tams, immediately appreciate his style of ownership.
If asked the difference between Jerry Jones and Arthur Blank, the favorite would be tilted to Mr. Blank.
Yet, in less than a year, his NFL team, 'The Atlanta Falcons', have went from first to worse.
His head coach, Mike Smith, once thought to be on the pulse of new strategies on offense and defense, along with the team's $100 M quarterback, Matt Ryan, has most season ticket holders, hoping that Mr. Blank kept his receipt.
Chances are that Mr. Blank can put both of them to work at his Home Depot.
Sad to say, but if he does not make changes from the top of the team, he might find himself working back at Western Auto !
