Too bad we couldn't have gotten him back as OC. :D Anyway, good for Mike!

Decent organization. He'll get a fair chance to succeed there.

You know what's funny - living here in Atlanta, the fans hate him as much as a good portion of Steelers fans hate Arians. It's a huge celebration in Falcons land that another team took that "idiot" off their hands.

From what I remember, he was initially well recieved as an OC with the Steelers, but there was some dissatisfaction with his playcalling by the time he left for Buffalo as a HC.

I'd imagine it would be frustrating to see an offense with Matt Ryan, Roddy White, Julio Jones, Tony Gonzalez, and Michael Turner getting shut out in the playoffs (their only points came from a safety by their defense).

Much like watching an offense with Roethlisberger, Brown, Wallace, Miller and Mendenhall not be able to score TD's inside the 10 (sometimes 5) yard line.

Hmmm...

Maybe it isn't all on the OC...

It is easy to pick on guys like Arians and Mularkey when you are nestled on your couch covered in potato chip crumbs.

Mularkey hired former Steelers WR coach (also former Bengals OC and former Falcons QB coach) to be his OC...

So, Jags fans will have a new target for message board vitriol...

I assume you are referring to Bob Bratkowski here.

You might watch the olympics and world championships every time they're on, but that doesn't make you an expert figure skater, either.... :stirpot
