  1. Totally agree.
  2. For me it was a combination of events that turned things around. 1. Quinn went back to his system that the team was familiar with. 2. the coaching changes got communication issues corrected 3. Quinn turned playcalling over to Ulbrich and Morris. 4. players held themselves accountable 5. Players were moved back to familiar positions ala kazee at FS. 6. They hit the reset button I wanted Quinn gone because he changed his own system and they were terrible. Now I think he should be given another season but the seat remain hot. What I do like is he did what most coaches will not and that was hold himself accountable. He corrected his own mistakes. Now all of a sudden Beasley looks like what I always thought he was and takk does too. I loved that Quinn was gonna take over playcalling but when he changed the system I wasn’t thrilled with that. But now that they’ve gon back to what they do I am very pleased. The bye week is always reset and correct week. Fans think you can do this during the season but it is incredibly hard because you’re always game planning for the next game.
  3. Quinn ****** this team up. At first I thought the DK hire was gonna be fine but he changed the offense too much. It looks sluggish and uninspired. Sark should’ve not been fired. The offense at least would’ve still been potent. I haven’t seen a stretch run yet this season. Outside zone period is nit exitstaht. What do you have free for if you’ve taken away what he’s good at? As for defense he changed his OWN scheme and now they look lost AF!! They can’t stop a cold. And the sad part is when he’s fired we’ll have to do the coach merry go round once again and they’ll have to learn another system AGAIN!!! now you see why I keep saying YOU CANT KEEP CHANGING COORDINATORS!!! And if you do promote from within. I said after ks left that lafluer Should be promoted cause who else knows his system? His firing is a self inflicted wound. He basically did the same thing smith did.
  4. Helluva team there. I’d watch those falcons teams with those guys running the show.
  5. He scored. The refs suck. He’s almost perfect a sneaks for TD’s. And 1st Downs.
  6. These refs are freakin terrible. That’s an obvious TD
  7. It’s basically what I’ve been saying for years on the board coming to a head. I said after Kyle left for SF that we should’ve promoted Lafluer. Brought an outside OC in. First year with him rough. Fires Manuel promotes himself, which was the right move BUT he CHANGES his own system so it’s still like learning a new DC in Bob Sutton. The pats stay good because BB promotes his coaches from within. He doesn’t hire outside. The Steelers have only had 3 HC’s in my entire life and the hires after Knoll were promotions from within and both coaches won a SB.
  8. **** this team. I’m on the dump Quinn train now. He wrecked the team by not hiring LaFluer to run kyles system. He promoted himself to DC but he changes the system with Bob Sutton’s 3-4 concepts. It’s all him. I’ve told you guys forever you can’t keep changing coordinators and now we see why for sure. Only problem is fans and AB don’t have the time to wait on the team to learn these changes anymore seasons. And the problem with that is once Quinn is fired there will he YET another change and the team will have to learn another system. The bad teams in the nfl change coaches too much. The good teams promote from within. It’s over for Quinn.
  9. No. You can’t keep changing coaches like I’ve said for a while. The good teams like NE promote from within. Lafluer should’ve been the OC hire when Kyle left. DQ should’ve promoted himself but he did bring in Sutton and they’ve been learning new stuff so that’s still an outside hire. The talent isn’t a fraud. Changing coaches every 2 years isn’t a recipe for success. That’s why the bad teams stay bad. Always changing coaches.
  10. Look I know y’all don’t care what I say to this matter. I’m just a fan like all of you but I also played this game and I know just a tad bit about the inner workings and I’ve said multiple times on the board that you can’t keep changing coaches and coordinators. I’ve said it many times. Y’all never believe that but as a former player I KNOW how difficult changing is. I’ve said that the pats always promote from within. They don’t hire outside. And they start on top. I’ve said since 08 Matt has had 2 HC’s, 5 OC’s and it’s been 5 DC’s. Not a recipe for sustained success. Well here’s what jimmy had to say this morning about why the falcons are 1-3.
  11. Welp I’m just about ready to join the can DQ train. Not because of the reasons most of you believe but because he handled that hiring of OC’s to drive that high end offensive car. Instead of promoting the guy that new Kyles system and the players the best in Lafluer he hires Sark. Then instead of weighing more options he immediately hired DK and they look slow and out of sync and uncreative with him. I initially liked the DK hiring but here’s the thing. If you’re going to hire an OC to run the same system why not promote from within? All these 1st year OC woes is getting tiresome. Every 1st year with a new OC Matt and the offense is stagnant. Including with Kyle but that made sense because they were learning a new system. So in loving THAT system so much why would you NOT promote the logical choice. I felt them lafluer should’ve been the OC. All these other things about what’s wrong with the team ain’t it. It’s one thing. The offense. What keeps changing about the offense? The OC’s. This is def Quinn’s last year in Atl if he doesn’t turn things around and I mean quickly at this point. And by that I mean they can’t loose now more than 1 more game and finish 12-4.
  12. Patience and vision from free.
  13. It’s not an emotion thing. It’s a common sense thing. PERIOD!!! PLUS the rules state taking your helmet off in a confrontational gesture is a penalty. This wasn’t confrontational. Again, common sense.
  14. Absolutely. It’s chess. It’s warfare. You have to identify your opponents weakness and attack it.
  15. No game is an easy win in the nfl. Especially when you go into a game thinking that way.
  16. We were never the browns of the nfc in the 2000’s. I think that belonged to either the lions or cardinals. We were a playoff contender in the 2000’s. Including a NFCG appearance against Philly. The years we missed either Vick was hurt or the dog thing happened.
  17. You’re right except he slowed down on the play instead of stood in a spot. That’s the second time he’s done that and it lead to an int.
  18. The SB messed me up for a while. I didn’t watch any sports shows for the entire offseason. But I also didn’t let the loss affect my life. I was just done with football until the next season started lol.
  19. I think it’s impossible. That’s why I give myself a 24 hour rule to be mad then I calm down and rewatch the game and look at the good and the bad and watch the small things that hurt us as well as the big obvious things. I watch assignments that probably 99% of the board don’t watch nor know what it is they’re looking at if they did try.
  20. Oh believe me I’ve mentioned it. I’ve said we lost to 2 good teams ON THE ROAD and beat a good team at home. But it goes overlooked because the sky is falling and everybody is in their feelings.
  21. Were never in position to take an SEC DL that’s worth taking. They’re always gone before we pick. I’m certain if an SEC DL worth taking was there we’d get him. We were gonna take the guy from Florida last year but there’s no way you pass on Ridley.
  22. Absolutely he did. When in the cut ups from Stark he said free looked himself making jump cuts, running away from ppl and thru ppl. These guys I don’t know what they’re talking about. And you and I had debated over his contract but you’ve never had anything to say about him as a player. I’ve never EVER heard a back with a 5.5 ypc had a bad or ok game when thw run game was abandoned to play catch-up.
