    He was the sole reason for our success that year. Defense was atrocious until we went to the playoffs. He pretty much had to get us there by outscoring our porous defense.

    Anyone who has been paying even the slightest amount of attention knew this months ago.

    It’s that line of thinking that has us where we are now.

    Like I said it would of been tough but I think we can all agree that Shanny was the Coach that made the 2016 Falcons special. Not Quinn. I don’t know what the right move was but I think the question should at least be asked especially given everything we know

    You keep him if you promote him to HC

    I know it would have been tough but you find a way to keep your most talented minds no matter what. Shanny’s back in the Super Bowl and we have Sherman a former Quinn player in Seattle calling Shanny the greatest football mind he’s ever met.

    Our coaches only play checkers. Does the draft have any of those pieces?

    I’d like to file a petition with the league that after scoring against the Taints next year all teams be required to play “Rock You Like A Hurricane” by the Scorpions

    The way I see it Quinn is the HC. It’s his job to be the CEO of all phases of the game. Shanny was a great hire. Richard Smith a mistake. MM a mistake. Not promoting a Shanny’s assistant to OC a mistake. Hiring Sark to run Shanny’s playbook a mistake. DQ as HC/DC a mistake. Moving Morris to DC was a quality move but it begs the question why wasn’t it done to begin with. DK seems like a step backwards. 
     
    It does not seem to me like Quinn’s managed his staff well during his time here. Ever since Shanny left Quinn’s hires on the offensive side of the ball have been a bandaid of sorts. On the defensive side Morris who’s been on the staff for years as a WR coach despite his defensive background has been the only good hire and it showed Quinn showing he couldn’t hack it and half a season before making the obvious move.

    This isn’t about the Super Bowl. This is about recognizing that Shanny is a special coach and that Quinn is not and finding a way to keep that superior talent on your team.

    It’s tough to fault him too much for this but Blank should have fired Quinn after the Super Bowl season and given Kyle the HC job. Kyle’s offense has been the only good thing during Quinn’s run as HC.

    It’s Quinn. He doesn’t know how to manage a coaching staff and he doesn’t bring anything to the table on offense or defense. You literally could have taken any one of us given us the HC job with Quinn’s personnel and gotten similar results.

    More like Tampa when they fired I think Lovie Smith so that they could promote DK to HC so he wouldn’t leave. Like I said it’s hard to fault Blank too much there but Kyle was what made that team special not anything Quinn did.
