The coaching staff is coming together in a hurry, I guess. Petrino has summoned Cowboys D-Coordinator Mike Zimmer to be their new defensive coordinator, a move that I honestly find a little head scratching. He's a coach steeped in the 4-3 tradition who has had to adjust to the 3-4 and now will go back again, as the Falcons are not going to change. Maybe he'll get right back on the saddle with the 4-3, but the Falcons are apparently more interested in who fits than a big name, so I have to give them some props for that. The only question is whether he'll be effective, and I like to hope that Petrino's history with him isn't the only reason this is going down.
Wow, That Was Fast
