Yeah, yeah, yeah. Blah, blah, blah. Lived it, don’t need to be reminded, right?
This history lesson is brought to you by USA Today in their list of NFL coaches who will start the season under pressure to win.
Smith, who was signed to a contract extension through 2016, makes the list with the likes of the Raiders’ Dennis Allen, the Jaguars’ Gus Bradley, Dallas’ Jason Garrett, the Dolphins’ Joe Philbin and Rex Ryan of the New York Jets.
Do you believe Smith will be in trouble if the Falcons don’t have a winning season? Who else would you add to the list?
