COACH: MIKE SMITH
FOURTH SEASON WITH THE FALCONS (33--15)
A thinker. Smith doesn't do things by the book; he operates from his own book on factors like player participation (reducing veteran pass rusher John Abraham's snaps from about 60 to 40 per game and getting more production) and practices (he treats some like advanced classroom sessions). Brian Billick's brother-in-law is an understated innovator, but ask those around him: He questions everything.
