Blank is just the current version. This goes way back to the early days, multiple coaches, multiple owners, all sorts of veteran and rookie QB, multiple kickers just good enough to be a disaster late in the 4th Quarter except the one kicker the Falcons kept letting go. The Falcons failed to sign NFL's all time leading scorer and one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history Morten Andersen not once, but twice after career years so they could sign far worse kickers.Exactly. I've always hated the Falcons but, since I currently live in ATL I do somewhat follow them. This trend is most attributable to the current owner, Arthur Blank. He doesn't have the stones to fire a coach who's best attributes are pep talks and figuring out how to lose games that should be impossible to lose. It's great theater for me but it sucks for their true fans.
