    The Smart One got a reaction from Atl Falcon in Any chance the Falcons try to lure Bill Bellicheck to Atlanta if Dan Quinn gets fired after the 2020 season?   
    I’m just tired of being embarrassed. And it’s not just a Falcons thing the Braves do it too.

    I feel like this is why Atlanta teams lose so much especially in big spots. A mindset of it could be worse instead of we must get better especially when it comes to coaches.

    The Smart One got a reaction from 10 Yard Fight in What are the chances Dan Quinn becomes an excellent head coach one day?   
    I put the odds of Quinn becoming a good Head Coach at 0%. Sure he’s a good hype man but he’s a poor strategist and a poor manager of his coaching staff. That leads to underwhelming results. Hype with underwhelming results is just BS and players tune out BS coaches.

    The Smart One got a reaction from AUTiger7222 in Do you think that Steve Sarkisian would have gone on to be a great offensive coordinator if the Falcons would have given him more time?   
    I think Sark could have been a great OC and one that would have been around for a while. Unfortunately Quinn really undermined him the first year by making him run Shanny’s playbook. The second year he got more of a chance to run his own stuff but it really takes 2 years to install an offense and he was already set back a year. Then Quinn scapegoated him to save his own job.

    The Smart One got a reaction from Cheap Talk in Which player do you think will be the biggest pleasant surprise on the Falcons this upcoming season?   
    I’m looking at Treadwell. Could really be valuable if he can fill the Sanu role. 
     
    I’ll roll the dice with Harris on defense as well. He’s been a bust but I wouldn’t say playing in Miami the last few years did him any favors.

    Quinn has been excellent in taking credit for the successes of others over his career.

    I don't think it would be considered hating to point out that even if we won the Super Bowl this year that the Falcon's have taken some questionable and possibly sub-optimal team building approaches during TD and DQ's tenure. Both with the roster and the coaching staff. It's hard not to feel like the last few years have been wasted regardless of what happens going forward. I'd love this to be the year though.

    The Smart One got a reaction from PokerSteve in Falcons Thomas Dimitroff blows another 1st round draft pick   
    I mean I don't feel great about drafting Terrell at 16 but if that's their guy then whatever. Hard to fault them if due diligence was done on trades and they couldn't find a taker. I'm more surprised we didn't trade back in. Murray and Queen hung around for quite a while. Considering whats at stake this year I'm surprised we didn't trade next years 1st. At the same time a little surprised we didn't move up. All things considered its a little weird we find ourselves in the position we're in to begin with. I wonder if TD and DQs hands are tied regarding trades and if so how much?

    The Smart One got a reaction from Atl Falcon in Peter King Guesses Hurts to Falcons   
    We may be looking at this the wrong way. I think the fact the Falcons are even looking at QBs has nothing to do with Ryan but has to do with a concern that the talent level in the QB room is too top heavy. Team has to make the playoffs or TD and DQ are out of a job. If something happened to Ryan, Schaub as a starter for any extended period of time would end very poorly. As for Hurts he’s obviously no first rounder but you can work with a young mobile QB that doesn’t throw the ball to the other team.

    The trade doesn’t have to be for 2 firsts. A few players were tagged last year and then traded. I believe Clowney and Clark were 2 examples.

    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.
