I always liked Chris Chandler during his tenure here in Atlanta. He was no superstar, but if you gave him time to throw, he could execute Reeves offense very well. During his best years in Atlanta, which I'd say were between 1997 and 1999, he was probably the league's best "manager" QB. You know the guys that don't particularly excite like Favre or McNair, but in the line of Dilfer in '00 in that they don't make too many mistakes, and basically rely on the running game to spearhead the offense.
I would love to see Chandler make a triumphant return to Atlanta next year, since I doubt the Rams will keep him after the season, but at age 39, he's most likely to retire. He won't go down in the annals of NFL lore, but there was a period of time during his long career, where I think he was considered to be one of the Top 10 QBs in the league.
I think it would be a very great move by Blank/Mora/McKay to sign Chandler to a brief contract so that he can retire as a Falcon. His run in Atlanta didn't end very well, the fans as you say treated him like crap for too much of it, but I think it would show the new class of this organization if Chandler retires a Falcon, where I think everyone can agree he had his best years. Sadly, one of the first moves Blank made as owner was letting go of Chandler.
