    CBS: Jon Gruden to Falcons if Blank fires Smith?

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/writer/...ers-or-falcons
    Should former Super Bowl winning coach Jon Gruden end up leaving the broadcast booth and returning to coaching, his most likely destinations would be Oakland or Atlanta, according to league sources, should those jobs open up.
    The Falcons would also be a situation that could appeal to Gruden. They have a quarterback and no shortage of offensive weapons in place. They have been a contender in recent years and if they do let go of coach Mike Smith, owner Arthur Blank is likely to seek a very high-profile replacement. Blank has quietly interviewed big-name coaches in the past for his openings but ended up going with more nondescript options. But sources said with him getting a new stadium built and with his fan base fickle in the past and his team falling well below expectations this season, everything would be aligned for him to seek a more proven commodity to try to get his franchise to a Super Bowl, should Smith be fired.

    Money is no object to Blank, Atlanta is close to Gruden's Orlando home (especially via private jet), and Gruden already coached in the division previously. While most of the probably head coaching openings wouldn't make much sense for him, these two certainly would.
    WELP.

    TD has said that mike Smith is going nowhere which means TD wont be for him being fired. It will all come down to Blank. I want them to both get the X really so idc too much about what TD says because its all about Blank and what he wants. If we finish with 4 or less wins, i could see atleast Smith gone.

    I like the idea of Gruden at HC... And I still think it's not all Smitty's fault... Can we keep both? Lol

    I think TD has to go tho... SOMEBODY has to get the axe

    I just think Ryan & Smitty click too well together to just dump him... Gruden AND Smitty FTW! Lol

    There is enough blame to go around to all of them but Smith doesn't coach these guys up, doesn't make halftime corrections, and worst of all for a defensive coach, he can't coach defense. How long has it been since our defense was good? That inexcusable when you have a defensive coordinator for a head coach.
