Falcons Reacts Survey, Week 16: What should Atlanta do with Arthur Smith?

“Launch him into the sun” is not an answer option on our survey, but if you feel that way, tell us about it in the comments.

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Atlanta Falcons fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to participate in the weekly emailed surveys.

Another Sunday has come and gone and delivered us one more embarrassing Falcons loss, this time against a Panthers team that had just one win coming into the matchup.

I’m not going to spend much time dwelling on that one because, frankly, I’m still pretty mad about it. Let’s instead look to the future as it pertains to Arthur Smith’s job security.

All indications out of Flowery Branch suggest that Smith’s seat is nice and cool. But the team just flip-flopped back to Heinicke as the starter, their playoff hopes are fading fast, and I’m still seeing very little indication that Smith knows how to use the staggering amount of skill position talent he’s blessed with on offense.

Does this mean Smith should be fired? And if so, when?This week we’d also like to know how confident you are in the direction of this team (the lowest those numbers can go is zero, otherwise I’d worry we’d be in the negatives this week) and if you think starting Taylor Heinicke is the right call. Take the survey, and share your thoughts in the comments!
