    Did Falcons violate "Rooney Rule"?

    I don't remember hearing that the Atlanta Falcons interviewed anybody before they hired Petrino. Did they interview Rivera? (who would qualify as a minority candidate.) Or was Petrino their first and only candidate?

    taken from cbs sportsline article...

    The Falcons spent the past several days interviewing NFL assistants, including Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera, San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and San Francisco 49ers assistant head coach Mike Singletary.

    ....Singletary, he's the new token brother that will be interviewed for every job. If I was Mike I would consider it to be a slap in the face. They did the same thing with Art Shell every year.

    actually we were the ones to drag out Art Shell and he was thankful to get his name out again, I'm sure it helped him land the Oakland job

    Token brother? Oh please. He has no experience as a head coach and has never been a coordinator. He's just not qualified. Besides, he cannot be the token brother when Tomlin is also getting interviewed.

    The point that you got no point?

    Mike Singletary will be a head coach in this league. May not be this year but within the next couple years he will be. Guys a natural leader.
