The positive moving forward with the Falcons on Mike NOlan is that if they win their playoff game, that means it'll be harder for him to get hired, since most of hte moving and shaking will have gone on by then.
But of course that doesn't factor in that early interviewing period that is allowed at the beginning of the playoffs. I might be wrong, but generally though active coaches on playoff teams don't get hired often until their teams are eliminated.
So the further the Falcons go in the playoffs, the less likely they are to lose either of their coordinators to head coaching gigs.
that bye week Nolan's phone is going to be ringing off the hook.

The team held its family Christmas party at MetLife Stadium on Friday and while the kids all ran around, the parents talked about the tragedy.
Coughlin and his players did not use what happened Friday in Newtown as an excuse, but they were playing with heavy and broken hearts
following a tragedy about an hour from where they live."
Lose to the Steelers? Blame Hurricane Sandy. Get BEAT DOWN by the Falcons? Must have been thos 'heavy hearts'
the obvious hypocrisy here is that NY has some of the most strict gun conrtol laws, yet Plaxico can shoot himself in the foot. NFL players are part of a gun culture with many of them having them and sometimes using them to commit crimes, yet let's all have a moment of silence.
