  1. Yes. He should have been fired after the Super Bowl.
  2. I’m down with it. At least as an Interim that can earn the job. Make Ulbrich the DC.
  3. The last 2 games proved TD wasn’t the problem, Quinn was. Quinn turned Beasley into an OLB after a 15.5 sack season as a DE, and turned a great DB coach into a WR coach for the most talented corps in the league. The team has been talented year after year, and if not for idiotic coaching, would have had multiple rings right now. It’s not a coincidence that the second play calling duties were taken away from him, the Falcons look like the most talented team in the league, We more than doubled our Sack and turnover count in 2 freaking games. If TD needs to go, its because he sucks at judging coaches, not players. Quinn sucks. Make Raheem or Ulbrich the interim. If the players like Quinn around, demote him to the cheerleading squad.
  4. It TD’s 11 years, he’s built at least 3 or 4 championship caliber teams, but coaching has consistently failed.
  5. It’s always coaching and scheme. Preparation is part of coaching. Its the coaches’ responsibility to have players prepared. Every team in the NFL has talent. Vic Beasley had 15.5 sacks in a season. His talent didn’t disappear The dumb coach started experimenting with him. In the NBA it’s talent, in the NFL it’s coaching.
  6. Ito needs to be the starter.
  7. This is why preseason matters. Quinn’s approach has failed. Totally out of sorts.
  8. Dan Quinn is the master of preparing a team in the preseason.
  9. Narrator: “No one but tourists eat at the Varsity” I love Glanville. Dude is hilarious.
  10. That dude is like when OJ was in the Naked Gun Movies.
  11. B. I think it will be one of those drafts that look a lot better 3 years from now.
  12. I’m actually happy with the pick. If he can get us a rush yard on 3 and 1 and keep Matt upright, I’ll be thrilled.
  13. This has to be the Guinness World Record for butt hurt.
  14. I made a handy guide for Aints fans to explain to them who’s fault it really was they lost.
  15. Mayor Landrieu got rid of the Confederate Monuments so they are desperate for some more participation trophies.
  16. I was on here in 98-99 under the name “Spaceboy”. Forgot my password and rejoined a couple years later. Around 2002 I think.
  17. On a stormy day, I would go to the nearest crime lab, stand in front of a rack of chemicals with a lightning rod. Then I would use my new found super speed powers to change the timeline and make sure Nick Saban signed Drew Brees to the Dolphins, ensuring he never goes to New Orleans and Saban doesn’t get the Bama gig.
  18. **** it. Hope he’s okay.
  19. If Koetter can merge Shanahan’s concepts with the no-huddle that Matt thrived in with Koetter and Mularkey, I’m fine with the hire. That said, I’m not comfortable with the message of having to go back to the old guard when the new guard fails. I also think Quinn’s demise has been inevitable since the end of the Super Bowl. I just don’t see any coach ever living a colossal failure like that down.
  20. The myth of the heir apparent. How often does that work out? Steve Young, Aaron Rodgers are exceptions to the rule. It’s like a once a decade phenomena where the back up takes over and becomes the next elite QB. By all means, get the best back up you can, but the idea that Matt Ryan’s replacement is out there for the taking is laughable. Sounds like a lot people wanted to put Joe Flacco back in after his heir apparent today. One of the dumbest ongoing narratives in football.
  21. Doesn’t matter how good a QB you are if you have no defense and a running game that can’t convert on short yardage.
