    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.

    It’s not that we finished 7-9 the last 2 seasons. It’s the path we took to get there.

    With so much interest why not tag and trade?

    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.

    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

    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?

    The Smart One got a reaction from ATL Fan in the DMV in Do you think Raheem Morris is an upgrade from 2017 Marquand Manuel?   
    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.
