I would quit too if I had to coach that team.

Not surprised he left. Thought he'd wait for the season to end though.

Will Bill Musgrave get his chance to be a head coach now?

Ya, not alot of class leaving your team behind before the seasons over. He will never see the NFL again.

Re: Falcons Coach Petrino Quits: Intends to Sign with Arkansas

God, what is with these college coaches being the lamest people ever? It really started with Spurrier and hasn't abated. Saban turned out to be a scumbag and Les Miles is acting like a jerk too.

Phoning in your resignation to a 3-10 team? Did you expect to win the superbowl the first year? He was going to have a chance to draft a franchise qb - maybe even his boy Brohm - and build the team in his image. I guess he is conceding he doesn't have what it takes to make it in the NFL.

Re: Falcons Coach Petrino Quits: Intends to Sign with Arkansas

Why is it pathetic? So what if he decides to leave? If you're stuck in a shit job, where is it written you have to stay for a certain length of time?

An owner of a team certainly has the right to fire a coach midseason. Why isn't the opposite true?

Wow...

I guess all these offensive geniuses that are coming from college are having trouble in the big leagues.

Well when your franchise quarterback goes to jail for three years before the season, ah , you really lose out on some of your genious game planning when your stuck with a joey harrington.

Re: Falcons Coach Petrino Quits: Intends to Sign with Arkansas

I agree that it's a classless move on his part, but Arthur Blank has been in the media critizing their talent at QB and not really supporting his coach. If Blank really deserved Petrino's best effort, he should have been behind his personel decisions.

Who ever thought that a little sprinty quarterback who couldn't throw was the glue that held that circus together?

He built all his hopes around Vick his world crumbled when he got those 23 months plus a one year suspension. I bet if Vick was only out the NFL for 1 year he would have stayed. That is a tough blow to a team Vick was there only offense last year along with Crumpler other than that everyone else were ball droppers.
