Words, baby, words! (Part 2)

A while ago, some of you might remember it, we realized that most of Mularkey's problems were based on language, or his ... let's say... interpretation of it. Well, maybe it is not. Maybe the stumbling and mumbling was not his fault. Maybe the truth is much scarier. Maybe it is actually connected to the job of being the OC for the Atlanta Falcons. Take it away, Mr. Post-Mularkey:

"Different people use different numbers for explosive plays," [Koetter] said, "but people who are way smarter than I am have determined that those are the important ones — 12-yard runs and 16-yard passes. (...) I didn’t create those numbers, but I’m smart enough to figure out that they mean something. I didn’t figure out that the world is flat, either."

I guess there is no way to know for certain what's causing this. Maybe it's Mike Smith and his secret hatred for offenses, infecting his offensive staff with some mind controlling worm at the beginning of each season, whispering "You can't spell M-I-N-D without D!" Maybe it's Matt Ryan telepathically disabling his coaches, cause he knows he can call a better game than any of them. Either way, it seems to run in the position.
