    His record is suspect. He had pedigree so he got a few chances. They never worked out. You are correct to worry. I think Allen is one of the best though so maybe he learned a few things in NO. I also hope Edwards is bringing over some Zimmer magic.

    Go look at those Falcons rosters during that time. The front 7 was awful and our dline headlined with the likes of George Selvie and Jeremy Mincey was probably better at that time. Yet the Falcons still managed more Ints.

    Let's give Nolan a chance and take an objective look.

    Some guys expect a miracle. You can't always put together a great team in 5 minutes, although some around here think they could do it from their easy chair.
    For all we know, Nolan may not even have been McCarthy's 1st choice. Even Patrick Mahomes knows you can't expect a TD from every single pass you throw.
    It's been claimed we were better off with Marinelli.....Not So. Both Marinelli and Garrett HAD TO GO. We need to give McCarthy a chance to put his team together, and that couldn't happen till Garrett and Marinelli were both gone. You can't expect change to take place till you make a change.

    Different is not always better. Nolan rarely had good defenses. he needs talent on that side and we lack it at almost every position.

    Hoping Edwards will run the defense on game day.

    Fortunately for Nolan, the bar of improvement is pretty low.

    Well, I'm not a fan of Nolan and I never really have been since the day he was announced. The book on him is that his defenses start out great and then they fall off. Once he gets figured out, his defenses decline. I mean, that's not different then most coaches, which is why there is a unwritten rule in the profession that basically says 10 years, no more.

    We'll see what happens......
