    The Smart One got a reaction from ATLskinjob in Is TD still as horrible as you thought?   
    We should also remember TD got us our QB. Imagine if we drafted Dorsey instead of Ryan like so many people fans wanted.

    The Smart One reacted to falcndave in Rb issues and Quinn   
    My problem is that these moves were over a season past due. Morris was only in an offensive role because Quinn wanted to help his like minded high five buddy build a HC resume, as the main knock was he only understood defense. Morris has an impeccable resume as a defensive coach in general, and a DB coach in particular. I'm a hard appraiser. I don't give "attaboys" for making an obvious move two seasons too late.
    If the defense improvement continues after changing Morris' role, I consider it one more nail in Quinn's HC coffin. It makes as much sense as asking Julio to switch to DB full time because no one understands a DB like a WR. Asking Julio to play deep safety twice a year on hail mary passes makes sense. Asking him to play safety full time would not.  Same with Morris: Asking him to give receivers input from a defensive perspective makes total sense. Asking him to coach WRs while DBs continue to under perform their talent level for two seasons does not.

    I don’t think it’s a TD issue. TD is fairly handcuffed by Quinn and Blank. Of Blank decides he wants to make a player a “Falcon for Life” TD can’t do too much in terms of negotiation. If Quinn wants a player there’s not really anything TD can do either. I doubt it was TD’s idea to keep Beasley on the roster. I don’t think TD deserves to be fired over Quinn’s mess. The question is will Blank allow TD to return to acting as a normal GM going forward? If so then TD should be kept. He’s done a lot of good over his Falcons career. If not then just go ahead and move on. This dysfunctional organizational arrangement has led to a lot of our problems.

    I’m not sure why we let TD go. He seems to be holding up his end of the deal well enough. Quinn runs all the football decisions TD just makes the contracts work.

    Kyle isn’t even chasing the 2016 offense. He is constantly evolving.
    If youre chasing a static objective, even if you reach it, you cant really evolve.  The mind behind the objective is gone.  Bring in a new mind to build his own vision.

    I mean I know Tunsil is a really good LT but that seems like a good deal for the Dolphins. They got 3 cheap years of Tunsil 2 firsts a second and dumped salary for 1 first round pick.

    I don’t know that I really see the issue here. Benkert is our developmental QB and he’s hurt and will now most likely be put on IR. From there we all know Schaub’s the backup so the backup to the backup may as well at least know how to run the offense correctly for the rest of the guys we’re developing on offense.
