    etherdome got a reaction from NCFalconfan in Chicago game will tell you all you need to know   
    We really don't need this game to tell us anything.  We have seen Quinn for five seasons.  He has had many more chances than he deserves.  One could say that he has used his time in Atlanta to learn on the job, but he doesn't seem to learn much at all.  
    The decision should already be made to fire the guy at the end of this season, unless the locker room gets out of control.....and in that case, he should be fired on the spot.  
    The Falcons have wasted Julio/Ryan peak years.  What a shame.

    etherdome got a reaction from BUBBASBEANS in Quinn Sends Clear Message: Koetter Hints Julio Injured More Than He Let On?   
    Julio's bum leg was still good enough to beat the defender.  All he had to do was catch a ball that was in his chest.  
    Julio has done this before.

    Yes he did.  He was in position to catch a well-thrown ball.  It was not his hamstring that caused the drop.  It was his lack of concentration.   
    I will be hated by many here for what I am about to write, but here is goes:  Julio Jones is not the best WR in the NFL.  You can not be top dog and miss a TD catch like that.  And by the way, he has done this before.

    Dan Quinn is in over his head.  He does not learn from mistakes.  I suspect this is true because Quinn does not look for the root cause of mistakes.  He is simple-minded and it shows.

    Sorry Julio, this is not a learning experience.  This lesson should have been learned in Pop Warner.  No, instead this is a clarification of the ineptitude of this team's coaching staff.
    These "pros" don't know what it takes to compete in the NFL.  They don't.  All they know is platitudes and placid apologies.

    etherdome got a reaction from 40milesN in Quinn doesn't have what it takes to be a head coach   
    By IT, I am assuming you mean intellectual horse power.  He may be a nice guy, but to be honest, he does not have much activity in the grey matter in his skull.  
    The man is a simpleton, perhaps even a dolt.  I don't want to call him a moron because he probably is capable of running a D2 college program.  So, let's not call him a moron.  
    You are right, he is not a NFL head coach.  He has proven that time and time again.

    The OP must be kidding.  Bennett, Campbell, Van Brocklin, Glanville, Petrino, Mora, Hanifan.  The list is long.  Quinn is just another cog.

    Not likely to happen.  This is not basketball.  Football depends heavily on a strategic positioning.  
    Jones and Olukun (sp) are the smart guys on defense.  Perhaps they can put the pieces in place, but I think that is too much to ask of any player

    etherdome got a reaction from Macknsweetjones in Falcons' secondary looks to avoid same mistakes vs. Cowboys   
    It seems like every quote I read, from the Falcons, confirms my opinion of Quinn.
    Quinn is a terrible Head Coach....terrible.  His teams are not prepared to compete.  There is plenty of talent on the team right now, to march to the super bowl.  And yet, the quality of play is down right abysmal.  
    Morris' comment that he wanted to concentrate on Seattle's running game might have been more appropriate a few years ago when Lynch was their top dog.  But even then, why would you omit coverage disguises from your preparation for a game?
    I have said it many times and I will repeat it again.  Dan Quinn does not have the intellectual horse power to be a modern day Head Coach.  He should have been fired this past off-season.

    It is false humility.  These guys are, once again, ill prepared.  Taking the blame and conjuring sympathy is a tactic that buys them more time.

    Out-Prepared, Out-Smarted, Out-Performed.  Now that is Flowery Branch T-shirt that speaks the truth.
