Jason La Canfora of NFL.com is reporting that the Atlanta Falcons are targeting former Baltimore Ravens head coach Brian Billick, among several others, to be their offensive coordinator in 2012. Hiring Billick would be a brilliant move for the Falcons and Matt Ryan. Many people forget that Billick was considered to be an offensive-minded coach due to the dominant defenses that the Baltimore Ravens featured in his coaching days.These days, Billick has a cushy broadcasting job, and it seems like those are tough to turn down see Jon Gruden. The thing is, the Falcons actually have quite the appeal.
The focus so far this week has been on how the Falcons offensive line can do to keep Matt Ryan upright and how the Falcons defense is going to slow down the Giants wide receiving corps. Lost in all this is the fact that the Falcons’ passing game has come around in 2011 to become a dangerous force and the Giants secondary will likely have its hands full come Sunday.
