Here's an article on the Commish search, but I posted the part about McKay and if he gets the job. It seems Blank might decide to split the position if McKay does get it.
How does everyone feel about that?http://www.ajc.com/sunday/content/epape ... e008d.html
Falcons' backup plan
Blank has a backup plan if the Falcons lose McKay to the NFL commissioner job.
"If Rich becomes the commissioner, I will probably look for a very high building to jump off of," Blank joked. "That would be my backup plan."
One scenario has Ray Anderson, the team's executive vice president/chief administrative officer, and Billy Devaney, the team's senior personnel executive, splitting McKay's duties.
"Rich would be a very difficult man to replace," Blank said. "He could not be replaced with a single person."
McKay, through a team official, said he will not comment on the commissioner search.
"I only want for Rich really what is the best thing for him," Blank said. "If this is something he wants to pursue, something he wants to do, then it's really a personal matter between him and his family.
"I'm going to support him. I know he would be a great commissioner. On the other hand, looking at it from a corporate perspective and my own perspective, I'd love to see him stay in Atlanta. I know he loves it here, loves the Falcons.
"We'll have to see how this plays out."
