    Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank spoke about the state of the team for the first time this season and expressed confidence in both head coach Mike Smith and general manager Thomas Dimitroff moving forward, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

    As his team dropped to 2-8 with Sunday's 41-28 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Blank briefly addressed the media.

    "We love our head coach and we love our general manager," Blank said. "It's up to them to candidly look at everybody -- candidly, honestly, critically -- and see what we have to do. There should be nobody that escapes that critique. That's their job, and I have confidence they'll do it. And they are doing it. And they will do it."

    SteveRobWhatever's Take: The Falcons had dreams of another run at the Super Bowl this year. Instead they might end up playing for the top pick in the NFL draft with the way they have been playing of late. They can't seem to do anything right, and the offensive line is one of the big reasons why. Not keeping Matt Ryan upright has killed them, and he has been relegated to forcing throws downfield and throwing INTs in droves.

    This Falcons team could have a very, very different look come 2014...

    In the other thread I was the only one to have Smith on the hot seat, now he gets the dreaded vote of confidence! I may have jinxed him.
