Just heard on ESPN that the Falcons will be hiring Louisville coach Bobby Petrino. It's a 5-year deal. Bucs maybe can smack them around now until he learns the NFL ways.

I wonder if this means Brohm will be leaving Louisville now?

 Personally, I'm very suprised by the hire. Does Petrino have any pro experience?

I just said in another thread...Be on red alert for a vick trade and I think brohm absolutely goes and bush may as well too. I think the Falcons try and grab brohm. Where are they picking 11th or something?

No, but he does have a great offense at UL, he is an offensive minded guy.

Who's making the announcement?  McKay?  We better wait to hear from Blank first.

Actually he does, he was the QB coach for 2 seasons and OC for one in Jacksonville.

Can they absorb the cap hit from a Vick trade, though? No one is going to take on that cap-killing salary. Analysis coming up on ESPN news.

I would turn, but the hockey game > anything on ESPN, and quite frankly if it's Salisbury he's just gonna lick Vick's genitals (or show pics of his.)

If this hire does clear through Blank, which is not a given, then I think its a mistake once again by Atlanta. You can't just take a college coach and expect him to walk in and win on the NFL level.   

The Falcons are going from inexperienced coach to inexperienced coach.  You have to think the players were craving a guy who is going to have some clout and some credibility that comes with being through the wars a couple times in the NFL.  They didn't get it.

McKay's job will be tied to this one, particularly after the Vick contract.   If Petrino doesn't work out that will be it for McKay as a GM in this league.
