Who is the interim had coach? Why couldn't they wait 1 week to fire him

Don't know yet...it'll be between Raheem Morris and Dirk Koetter.  Looking at their staff, I'd give Koetter the edge, because he has former OC Greg Knapp on the staff and could help out while Koetter takes over the team.  There's not really the same on the defense.

If Cleveland isn't ready to go i think it'd be worth giving Collins or someone a chance

If Cleveland isn’t playing, it’s nothing more than a decision based on pure stubbornness.

He's not doing nothing...although I do expect that he will be playing after the bye (which is happening after this game).

I wouldn't say that...people were clamoring for Samia because of the knowledge that Elflein left a lot to be desired.  Well, guess what, Samia is significantly worse.  I trust that if Cleveland were ready, he'd play.

It's disappointing no doubt but he also shouldn't play just because he's a2nd round pick. 

I might be in the minority but if he's getting pushed around in practice I don't think it would help him to be pushed around in games for 11 games. 

If he's looking good in practice he absolutely should be playing

I have to imagine this will be an inspired Falcons squad due to the coaching change.

Julio got a week off to rest his hammy, will be curious how he progressed as I know those can nag at players. 

Gurley also looked liked Gurley of old.

Is he playing? Because that's what matters.......but you knew that's what I meant.

Never said he should play just because he was a 2nd round pick. People should be disappointed a 2nd round pick hasn't seen the field on a "rebuilding" team.

He was raw coming out playing a new position with no preseason but yeah I think most people are at least a little disappointed. 

If it was at any other positron besides quarterback i think he would be getting some playing time.  The offensive line is pretty much all or nothing though so he'll either play every snap or no snaps.  If he was on the d-line he would be getting some reps with a chance of increasing his work load as he gets more comfortable.

Zimmer can be stubborn in regards to making changes on the line but it seems like most times he is right.  Has a backup ever looked better when they got a chance on the O-line besides O'Neal? It seems like it always gets worse
