  1. All of them old coaches with probably no shot at any other HC gig. But if we hire DQ‘s Seattle buddies as coordinators, anything the Bucs will do will actually look ingenious compared to our moves.
  2. And the worst part is, this will happen again in 2020 because DQ will get fired along with Bevell and his other buddies after 2019. With that schedule and DQ game management and this lightweight roster, the Falcons will disappoint again.
  3. @TheUsualStuff: I think American soccer will feed mostly on baseball in the future. Like baseball you don't need much to play it as a kid. You can also be very good at it without being super tall or super fast or super strong. And both are mostly outdoor summer games. Soccer is not going to replace baseball but it will take a huge part of the cake sooner or later.
  4. No idea what happened there but just looking at the players, this should not have happened. So their is probably alot of fault with the coach and tactics as well. But you should keep in mind that in football, very surprising things can happen. Germany went out of the WC for the first time in 70 years in the group stage against South Korea. The tactics were poor, the attitides were poor and that is how - speaking in NFL terms - the Patriots lost against a college team. But in actual american football this could not happen simply based on measurements. The Patriots are way too stronger, fas
  5. Not sure. I think the Falcons and the United represent different aspects of Arthur Blank. There seems to be a great premium on revenue with the Falcons and less about bring a loud crowd into the stadium. If he would be all about winning, he would have to start changing his own attitude towards the Falcons.
  6. Maybe it would produce some players for certain positions. But the most important ones require less athletic skills but mostly skills at the ball. In other words, all those kids that already don‘t have a shot of being any good at basketball (too small) and american football (too slow, too weak) have a shot at being good at football. The one thing people need to understand is that it requires 11 QBs to play football. Everyone has to have accuracy and touch with the ball, even the goalie nowadays.
  7. There is no sitting in the wall. Everybody stands all 90 minutes.
  8. Jesus, you know nothing about football skills. Usain Bolt couldn‘t even make it on an Australian football team (and they are even way lower than MLS) and he even grew up playing football. Football skills can not be measured like this.
  9. As someone living a 10 minute foot walk away from „The Wall“ in Dortmund, let me tell you that ATLUTD did indeed accomplish something great and it not only winning that championship. People over here in Europe know what happened and know that there is a team in the US that draws 70000+ in attendance every week. ATLUTD did only only put themselfes on the map of world football but probably all of MLS.
  10. @TheUsualStiff: 100% right and I think this is just the beginning. I think American Football is unfortunately on a grave path. The constant rule changes, the business trumps all attitude, an aging fan base. To me it seems that young people are very gracious for an opportunity to be part of something without having to mortgage their house (if they even have one) for tickets and be part of something authentic and honest.
  11. Looking at it from over the atlantic, I am just impressed at the crowd in the stadium all year. It seems almost impossible that this is the same stadium the Falcons play in. I am sick and tired looking at the half empty stadium filled with mostly lethargic fa... customers. I am very happy for ATLUTD because this team is all about the fans. I think many people now get what real football is all about.
  12. I think the action on the video is not too serious and did not lead to the Chiefs cutting him... but bad judgement and too many lies did.
  13. If 2019 is like 2018, then he will indeed be gone. AB won‘t tolerate two losing seasons in a row. I actually would fire him because those meltdowns had happened in 2015 as well, in the SB and in multiple games in 2017 and 2018. For me this is not the first losing season under Dan Quinn.
  14. Same for me... game starts at 2:30 AM local time. Will be first game in years I won‘t watch live. Not worth losing a good sleep over it.
  15. 4 years actually... I would like to avoid the 5th season with him as HC.
  16. We should look at young and talented NFL OC. We definately need someone with an offense background to run this team. Otherwise we are going to waste the prime years of Ryan and Julio.
  17. Other than being the Saints, I find it hard to hate them this year, They work hard, play with a plan and passion. At this point, they have everything that we lack.
  18. I‘d rather have an overachieving team than one that constantly underachieves. Nothing is more frustrating than losing games you should win. My first real impression of Dan Quinn was the 6 game losing streak in 2015 against mostly miserable teams. Nothing has changed since then. In the end, Dan Quinn is the master of collapse... in single games and in seasons. At some point the team will collapse in the worst possible manner. Mike Smith had some of them as well but at least the team rebounded the next week. With Dan Quinn, it is always a streak (again, within games and within se
  19. If anyone ever tried to quit, Mike Smith Head went like this: I am pretty sure the movie producers even had Mike Smith in mind when they created that character.
  20. Put him back on IR, no reason to risk his long term health. Won‘t happen though with Dan Quinn fighting for his job.
  21. 2009 was everything the team needed. We had so many injuries and still kept competing. We were humiliated by the Eagles (and Mike Vick) in our own stadium on a day without our QB, RB, WR2 and LT and we still were ready to win the next game. We couldn‘t make the playoffs on the last week of the season, but we came back on a road game in heavy snow by throwing a TD on the last play... which gave us our first back to back winning season. Dan Quinn is nowhere close to Mike Smith in his prime. Not even in the same league.
  22. DQ will be remembered the coach who delivered the most painful history in Falcons history. And if that is not enough, he will also be remembered as the coach that wasted good playoff chances in multiple years (2015, 2018, more to come?) by losing to sub 500 teams while completing losing control of game management and game preperation. At this point I can‘t even blame Julio and Ryan to just get big fat contracts because their prime is being wasted by Dan Quinn.
  23. Did you see him on the sideline gesturing for the horn to be blown on third down? That really was a court jester move that made me laugh hard.
  24. Those timeouts gave the cowboys an extra two yards. Situation was 1st down and both teams had two timeouts. Dan Quinn had could not have saved time for a last drive because he didn‘t have three timeouts. The cowboys meanwhile would not have been able to run Elliott three times because they also had only two timeouts, so they would have had to kick on third down. With the way the Cowboys pushed our line all day, that meant an extra run of two yards. The following kick was quickly fading to the right and might have hit the crossbar if it would have two extra yards. There
