Will Falcons Owner Arthur Blank Fire Mike Smith?

Another Sunday, another face-palming loss for the 2-6 Atlanta Falcons. This time, they blew a 21-point lead, falling to the Detroit Lions, 22-21, at Wembley Stadium in London. It was the largest blown lead in Atlanta Falcons history.

Even before the collapse against the Lions, head coach Mike Smith was on the hot seat. After a fan snapped this photo of owner Arthur Blank giving Smith the stink eye on the sideline during Sunday’s loss, you have to think his walking papers are coming soon.

Of course, this wasn’t the only tweet wondering whether or not Blank was going to fire Smith.

Not even #TonyRomo could have pulled off what #MikeSmith and the #Falcons just did. #Lions #TSN690

He does have at least one supporter, though. 

Also #MikeSmith is my favorite coach in the #NFL because he looks like the world’s nicest dad. @Atlanta_Falcons — victoria catherine (@tori_c_t) October 26, 2014

Solid reasoning.
