You’ll notice pretty quickly that only offensive minds made our list.  Why? Because it’s an era of offensive football.

We can talk all day about how ‘defenses win championships,’ but that phrase simply isn’t true anymore. Look at Eric Bieniemy and that Kansas City Chiefs team if you need proof.

If you had to rely on the Chiefs defense to win you a championship, you’re likely going home empty handed. It’s that offense that paves the way for hardware and Bieniemy is the mastermind running the well-oiled machine.

The Falcons need to adapt to the new era of football and that means bringing in an offensive mind. Bieniemy is one of the brightest offensive minds in the league.

He is going to be a successful head coach and is the rumored No. 1 target for the Atlanta Falcons moving into this offseason. The only question is if the Falcons can get the job done.
