  1. ATLskinjob liked a post in a topic by falcndave in 5 teams after Sanu   
    I agree overall, but Sanu's presence has little impact on Ridley's looks. They play different roles. Sanu is the possession receiver. Ridley is seen as an outside guy by this staff. Hardy is the guy who would see more action in the slot with Sanu out...or all of the possession work could just go to Hooper. Sanu and Hooper play very similar roles on this team. 
    We don't have anyone as versatile as Sanu...I think that is part of why other teams value him. He can pretty much fill the role you need him to fill on your team. He can play slash. He can play wide if you have no Julio. He can play hybrid TE/WR. He is a quality blocker. On top of that, he's just the kind of guy most coaches want on the roster. He out works most and had a very high football IQ. 
    Because three of our losses are out of conference, I think we are about one or two conference losses away from the FO cashing it in. At that point, Sanu will probably be gone...it seems to make sense.

    Paul Worrilow could Tackle too. It’s about  more then that in football

    lol. I'm confused. The "too much zip" is what leads you to think "Ryans arm is done," You did actually say both?

    It isn’t just scheme. The players aren’t executing the fundamentals of the game or the scheme.
  6. falcons007 liked a post in a topic by falcndave in Watching this team on side lines, this team has quit.   
    DQ's entire stint here has me fully embracing the common theme: past (or current) performance is not indicative of future results. 
    You can't predict ANYTHING about a DQ coached team by watching its current body language. Nothing!
    Think back over the last 4 seasons. A 5-1 start full of high fives leads to a seat on the couch for the playoffs. A ho-hum opening ten games of fan grumbling and team deflecting turns into a unstoppable juggernaut down the stretch and through two rounds of the playoffs. In the following game, a 28-3 lead accompanied by smiles and back slapping becomes a loss. There are other examples on both the macro (season) and micro (game) level that prove this out. Anyone remember taking a 1 point lead late in the 4th quarter just to lose on a "pick 2" on the conversion attempt?
    Is it possible to be consistent in inconsistency?

    Experienced coach is what we need.
    **** I’d let McCarthy come in tomorrow and let him run our offense off of no days prep lol that’s how over I am of the Knapp Mularkey Koetter triumvirate.
  8. octoslash liked a post in a topic by falcndave in Maybe Arthur Blank is the problem...   
    Honestly, I think Ryan had more of a hand in that choice than AB did.

    This isn't even close to true, and entirely an unfair comparison.  Rankin Smith was terrible. Quite possibly the worst NFL owner ever!!
  10. falcndave liked a post in a topic by ukfalc in Fire Quinn roll call   
    Not a fan of firing people mid-season, but I’ll make an exception in this case.
  11. falcndave liked a post in a topic by The Don™ in Whether it’s the messaging or the players, Dan Quinn has a problem   
    We need a blend of Smitty and Quinn rolled up into one. One is all fundamentals, discipline, penalty-free and the other is what you described.
    I always thought near the end of Smitty's tenure, we played it too safe and timid. After Smitty's firing, I wanted someone that puts the players in the best position to make plays. I've seen many flashes from Quinn's D over the years but there's been little shown in means of fundamentals and consistency. Those two are not there week in and week out. If the players want to turn it on, it's on. If it's not on, we look like a D3 school taking on a D1 school at times. IDK why they think "we're talented, so we good". Rico Allen pretty much said that. Not about himself necessarily but others around him. That self sentiment was HIGHLY evident in the past against the Browns, Bills and Dolphins. 
    Here's a article excerpt from 92.9 the game. Devondre Campbell talking about not taking the Browns seriously. I mean, are you kidding me?
    That to me was disturbing last year and it is STILL evident this season.

    My thoughts on Quinn since his second season are posted above. When I mentioned this the week before the Superbowl, no one wanted to hear it. The post above is from December 2018. Now it is gaining traction. The facts remain unchanged, only opinions are different. The bold portion is in direct response to this thread. It is the "problem" as I see it: All flash and sizzle, no substance. Ride that wave of emotion...no matter which way its flowing.
  13. rounz liked a post in a topic by falcndave in (This was after Eagles Game) Quinn, need motivation? Show the team the power rankings!   
    1) I honestly don't think power rankings impress any player in the NFL. As such, I doubt they are motivational. They barely matter to some fans. 
    2) Nothing in Sunday's game left me thinking they were lacking in Motivation. Win the trench war, check. Attack relentlessly, check. Make big plays that were left on the table for first 12 weeks of last season, check. Attack in the red zone, check. 
    This team was popping anything in Green. It was a bad day to be an opponent. Motivation?  Check!

    Banged up O Line looked very solid vs. one of the better front 7s in the league. Very encouraging. Compared to the beating Ryan took last week...big step up.

    This week, pass heavy was 100% the way to go. No question. The Eagles were exposed in week 1. To not attack that secondary would have been criminal. That said, you are correct over the long haul. It needs to be more balanced after 17 weeks. That said, look at the pass plays that were there to make that we let get away. The Eagles secondary was so bad they did not even attempt to cover all the receivers on some plays. They were literally playing pee wee ball and sending the house on every significant snap. 
    So, big picture,  you are correct. For this particular game, we used a good deal of passes designed to attack aggressive defense...even more screens and flat routes would have been okay with the amount of zero they were playing.
    If Belichick played this team, he might not run the ball once in the first 15 plays. The game plan pass balance was correct. Ryan's willingness to throw caution to the wind was interesting, but I'm sure he was told to just let his guys make plays. The one into double coverage in the endzone could not have been more perfect. Two defenders draped on the receiver, and the only one with a chance to touch the football was Ridley.
