    Probably a good move for Petrino. He's more of a college coach. Big pick up for the Hogs.

    Falcons are a sinking ship, I'll bet he's glad he got a life boat.

    There's a few coaches that aren't going to have jobs next year... maybe they can take Brian Billick away from the Ravens? I can be hopeful, right?

    Sorry but I believe that this guy is a wuss, resigning of a team that he commited during the off-season. Sorry he knew what he got into when he signed the contract, he knew it would be rough times, and now he quits on his team and this organization, sorry but I don't agree with that. I have a different opinion when a played demands a trade, but when it comes to a coach who does type of stuff, I don't agree with.

    I don't agree with it either, but he'll definitely have more success at the college level, which is why I said it was a good move for him. He should have never bolted for the NFL in the first place, but I guess he couldn't turn down a $24 million contract.

    what a HUGE coward...call me old fashioned, but you should definitely finish what you start, especially being a head coach in the NFL. If the Falcons were in playoff position this year, I'm sure he'd stay for the good times...100% CLASSLESS MOVE.

    In his Monday Morning Quarterback column this week, Peter King mentioned that the Falcons denied Petrino permission to speak to Arkansas a couple days before he took the job. No wonder Blank has been so pissed over this.

    I think this was smart for him. He didnt do it properly granted, but this is a story where a guy went for happiness not for the money. Its not often you see that so i love that he did it.

    How do you feel about Rich Rodriguez leaving West Virginia then? Leaving his alma mater for more money/prestige.
