Falcons fire Jim Mora

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta fired coach Jim Mora on Monday, just two years after he led the Falcons to the NFC Championship Game.

The decision to dump the fiery coach followed two straight disappointing seasons. The Falcons lost six of their final eight games in 2005 to miss the playoffs, and they finished 7-9 this season by losing seven of the last nine contests.

Owner Arthur Blank made the announcement at the team's suburban training complex

Re: Falcons fire Jim Mora

Wow. After that 2004 season, I thought Mora would be coaching the Falcons for a long, long time. Two disappointing seasons and the whole Washington fiasco didn't help him, though.

Falcons fans, who would you like to see take the helm?
