Mike Singletary Hearts The Falcons

In a move that automatically makes him the frontrunner, Mike Singletary announced that he'd actually like to coach the Falcons:

"Sure I would -- absolutely," the San Francisco 49ers assistant head coach said by phone when asked if he would like the job. "The one thing I've learned is it's hard to become a head coach. But I feel I'm ready now. I know I'm ready."

There's also word that Blank is prepared to put the full court press on Singletary. Barring something completely unforeseen, you can pencil in Singles as the new head coach of the Atlanta Falcons.

As I believe I've previously indicated, I'm cool with this. From all indications, he's a great guy, a talented defensive thinker and not the kind of guy who scuttles sideways to a college 3/4ths of the way through the season. In short, he's an inoffensive hire who will have to be augmented by a talented offensive coordinator. Blank will be making a splash with a big name coach, but from a purely talent standpoint I think he could've tried for a bigger home run with someone like Jason Garrett or Josh McDaniels.

Anyway you slice it, it's just nice to be wanted.
