Invoice Belichick in Atlanta could be completely marvelous

Bless the Atlanta Falcons’ coronary heart: They’re capturing their shot. There are experiences from nationwide and native Atlanta insiders that the Soiled Birds need Invoice Belichick to be their subsequent head coach. On Wednesday, ESPN’s Dan Graziano and Jeremy Fowler reported that the Falcons have a strong interest in Belichick, if he have been to maneuver on from the New England Patriots.

On Thursday, after Belichick and the Patriots formally parted methods, the Atlanta Journal-Structure’s D. Orlando Ledbetter reported group proprietor Arthur Clean wants Belichick. ESPN’s Adam Schefter additionally reported Thursday that the Falcons might be within the hunt for the six-time Tremendous Bowl champion head coach this offseason.

Hey, shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you’ll land amongst the stars. If the Falcons are severe about altering the methods of this constantly disappointing franchise, why not go for one of many best coaches within the historical past of sports activities. Though, per Ledbetter’s supply, Belichick is just not within the job.

That is smart to anybody who has ever watched the Falcons. Even the profitable aura of Belichick will not be sufficient to clear that franchise of its shedding juju. Their collapse down the stretch of this season’s NFC South race — a race that didn’t embody the swiftest of rivals — was simply the most recent instance of a franchise that slips on the banana peel each single time.

Nevertheless, if Belichick did take the Atlanta job, what a wonderful factor it might be. Think about him within the lemon-pepper-wing capital of the world. There’s a J.R. Crickets down the road from the stadium. I’ll take him there personally, after which department him out to the lesser-known gems.

A welcome celebration might be thrown at Blue Flame. Large Ok.R.I.T. titled a music about a ballet after the place. I’m constructive that the expertise there would placed on a present for Belichick that he would always remember.

If he’s going to go away Foxborough, then he ought to begin over utterly. No extra drives down that Boston-Windfall turnpike. Go on over to Northside Drive. Is the Colin Kaepernick mural nonetheless there? If that’s the case, Belichick may swing by there and get a fast lesson about simply how far of a attain a non-violent protest can nonetheless have within the new millennium.

I’m telling you Invoice, Atlanta is a enjoyable city. You may get a pleasant taper together with your haircut and look 10 years youthful. There may be additionally the chance to get reacquainted with the nice American machine referred to as the Chevrolet. You’re in all probability driving a international automotive lately, however Common Motors would possibly reel you again in once you see that automobile as you will have by no means seen it earlier than within the streets surrounding Mercedes Benz Stadium. Automotive and Bike Present weekend is a blast.

There are various causes for Belichick to not have an interest within the Falcons’ job. They need to really be searching for an offensive-minded head coach, or at the least one that’s not going to carry his workers of retreads with him from an offense that was sputtering throughout Tom Brady’s last season with the Patriots.

Then once more, perhaps the outdated coach simply wants a change of surroundings to alter his methods. If launched to it, his thoughts might be opened to how rewarding it may be to embrace a brand new lifestyle. Typically completely different is critical to carry some vitality again to life. And there may be definitely no extra completely different of a spot than New England the place Belichick may coach than Atlanta.
