Falcon's owner Arthur Blank is said to be "greatly impressed" by Hecker's "old school toughness".
"I mean...he's dead, for Chissakes...how much more old school tough can you be?"
Hecker, who passed awayin 2004 after playing a key role on eight NFL Championship teams, was unavailable for comment, as his deathness makes it impossible for him to address the media without the aid of a psychic or fancy electronic equipment.
Most recently. the Falcons were reported to have offered the job to two-time Falcons coach Marion Campbell. Blank reportedly went to to offer a three-year contract to Campbell, who yelled, from his rocker on the porch, that Blank should "Get the hell off my lawn".
