Quick discussion post for the West Coasters.
With just one more win, Mike Smith can make history. He will become the winningest coach in Atlanta Falcons history. He and Dan Reeves will tie actually, but you have to figure that Smitty will run away with it going forward.
If they win, awarding Smith a game ball, in a traditional postgame ceremony, might not go over too well. Smith probably would try to give it back to the players, his assistant coaches, general manager Thomas Dimitroff or owner Arthur Blank.
“Knowing Smitty, he probably wouldn’t be too happy if we did that,” center Todd McClure said. “He’s going to try to downplay it as much as possible. But I think it shows what this organization has done over the last four or five years. From all the way at the top, they are trying to get a winning culture around here. They brought in the right guy for that.”
I don't expect us to lose tomorrow. But you shouldn't expect much celebration. Not from Smitty, and not from the organization. The goal is to win games. In Smitty's eyes, he's only doing his job.
Obviously curious what y'all think. Discuss!
