IDK, I heard it on the radio though. maybe DP has it on his website or something, feel free to go look for it. Or perhaps the second shooter from the grassy knoll ran off with it. /Conspiracy theory.
Great point, I'm sure that the guys that rely on the goodwill of the organization for access to players and information aren't biased at all. These are the same guys that stayed tight lipped about BVG and MM for 4 years because they didn't want to irk the organization.
I don't know what Blank would do, but I imagine if he thought he would have to replace Smith after going 0-4 he would have had the FO do their due diligence beforehand and search for a suitable replacement and TD isn't the only one that would be in on such a search. Maybe it came from TD or one of his minions, or someone that was close to Blank, or from a magic 8 ball IDK. DP didn't disclose the source and I wouldn't have expected him to. Information leaks are not unheard of, even with the Falcons as tight lipped as they are.
Blank has talked about following the model of the Patriots and Steelers. In that having consistency at the top of the organization is a key focal point in having consistency on the field.
