This could be the start of some really good he said/he said drama in the papers.

http://www.ajc.com/falcons/content/spor ... blank.html

Blank basically says that "No, Dan, it wasn't me that pushed it. It was a group decision." And he seems to imply that Reeves was a part of that decision, but doesn't outrightly say it.

I had a hard time believe that Blank jumped feet first into the Price deal. He has been very good about consulting people before making a move.

One of the things that I think Blank did when he first came to Atlanta before there was a firm front office in place, was he would get a player recommended and then he would lock into that player.

I think this was the case with Price. There was talk by the then Falcons brass about getting a deep threat to help Vick, and Price, Boston, and Coles were the only players available. And among that group, they identified Price as the best option, and Blank then got a radar lock on him and that's probably where Reeves is coming from.

I have a feeling the Price signing had a lot to do with Blank. Call it a hunch really but I don't see Dan Reeves going after that type of player.
What kills me is that the Falcons are catching a lot of grief over the whole Price thing. We are getting ridiculed for signing him. I think that is pretty wrong considering how many sports writers praised us for getting him in the first place, and even went so far as to say that we got one of the best recievers in the league, (I never thought that ot beging with)
I think it's kind of sad how a lot of the sports writers (the one's for CBS in particular, Pete Prisco is a douche-bag) can so easily reverse positions on a topic without recognizing that they ever thought differently in the first place.
