    Spartakick got a reaction from tbhawksfan in Why is Dan Quinn still not FIRED?!   
    The simple fact of the situation is everybody said the same thing last year! Literally said the same thing. Just let him play out the season after the Falcons had loss after loss.. The time is now, at least the shake up will make Flowery Branch entertaining instead of a depressing **** show.

    I've been a long time supporter of Dan Quinn but the line has been crossed. He has had ample time to work this team and 0-4 to start a new season is surely is the end of the road. This is going to sound sick but it seems as if the choking and mediocrity has seeped into the foundations of the Falcons and now they are clearly rotting. That Superbowl loss is now a situation that could never be rectified.
    Time to clean the slate and it starts with Quinn. I wouldn't mind if Blank removed TD either. Incredible.

    I agree with OP. The defense looked really good last night, very different to what we are used to seeing.
    Plenty of grit and X-Factor! A combination of youth, some rookies with sheer talent, some battle tested and already played in a super bowl. The perfect storm is brewing, this season or the next.

    This Falcons defense is legit, its  “Harvey Dahl” identity has arrived.
    Our defense just won its first in the trenches dogfight in years.
    The Falcons DL was owning the Eagles big, physical OL. These same  Eagles OL bullied us in 2017 playoffs, yet we bullied them last night. I was watching which direction the line was moving at snap, and our DL was collapsing their OL consistently. If it weren’t for the amazing Houdini Wentz magically escaping, we would have had at least 4 more sacks. We knocked him on his $#@ at least 6  times, not including all the hits he took. Not to mention the run defense is spectacular. The Eagles OL was having little success knocking our DL back off the ball when trying to run it.  We were relentless, high motor and violent. Beasley and Takk look like different players this year.  Wow we’re the signings of Davison and Bailey brilliant moves. They are allowing  Grady and our LBs to seek and destroy. Jones was frequently untouched as he came in for the closing tackle near LOS.
    DQ had an excellent game plan. We played a lot of man coverage and frequently put space between our defensive linemen presnap so Philly had trouble tying them up with double teams. 
    We even have these young guys making big plays. John Cominsky had a nice TD saving tackle. He was lined up out wide at DE in goalline, about 3 feet away from Davison, maintained his gap, but when RB cut inside Cominsky pulled a spin move on the OT Lane Johnson and made the tackle.  For a 6’5” 285lb player, that play demonstrated amazing athleticism. 
    The coverage in passing game was tight on receivers, TEs and backs coming out of backfield. The Eagles receivers were getting vicious hits laid on them all night, it wasn’t just Neal doing the enforcement. Rico, Kazee, Campbell, Jones all delivered vicious hits.
    Any Oliver, while he’s still learning, he’s also getting better each game. He fits this new physical defense well. He made the game winning tackle and it was a big deal. 
    Im so excited I could explode after watching this game again. No wonder I couldn’t sleep last night. I saw what I’ve been praying for for years, a nasty, physical, tenacious, never quit defense. 
    Now, add this to an offense that is about to explode and we’ve got ourselves in a position to win the division, get home field advantage in playoffs and be good enough to beat anyone, anywhere, in any way, at any time.
