    BeardyMan reacted to JDaveG in Arthur Smith Met With Kyle Pitts Twice   
    Also, Fontenot said something when they went to Lawrence's pro day that was huge to me.  He said you never know where these guys are going to be in 4-5 years.
    If we like Pitts, even if we don't draft him, it makes sense to get to know him and form that relationship.  You might need it in free agency in 2024 or so.  Same goes for every one of the QBs, Chase, Sewell, Slater, Surtain..........get to know them all.  You are probably picking one of them this season, and you might want some of the others in a few years when they move on from the teams that draft them.

    BeardyMan got a reaction from PokerSteve in Sports Radio 680 The Fan (Alleged Peter King Comment)   
    (First- I live in the Midwest and have this radio app that I can select a radio station of my choice. This is just another way to keep in the loop on ATL)
    So I was listing to the morning show on 680 and I don’t know the other two that were talking but it was the morning show with Brian Finneran.
    they were talking about breaking news (allegedly) over night that Peter King was on a radio station and mentioned that AB was considering a coach change. This was then posted on a Facebook account by an Atlanta beat writer (unfortunately did not catch the name , Michael something... I think ?)
    did anyone else hear this and is the beat writer (if you can figure out his name and Facebook account) legit or is this someone just starting a rumor?
    Peter King has not commented yet.
     
    if true... it will probably take a loss to Tennessee and Houston for this to even be considered.

    It’s a no for me. I was a big believer in DQ but enough is enough. 
     
    But on the other side of the ball, I think they will get better and not start off so slow.

    I haven’t listened to 680 in years. Take everything with grain of salt. AB isn’t the one to make change mid season, not now. It will be dumb to fire a coach after 1-2. Only way DQ is getting fired if the team loses 45-0 for next 5-6 weeks.

    DQ didn't beat anything. Stop 
    Philly was missing both their top 2 receivers still had a great shot to win. If not for a tackle literally inches short of the 1st down marker we could easily have lost.
    And the SB was the biggest embarrassment to the organization in a while. We are a etched in history as a freaking joke because of that. We gave everyone a reason to laugh when they think of the Falcons. That's not a badge of honor for DQ.

    TD and Quinn both need to go. It’s time for an entire regime change. Keeping the status quo is getting us nowhere.

    AB isn’t firing Quinn after 3 games.
    That being said Quinn hasn’t given him many reasons to keep him around.
    I think Blank went through a similar process in 2014.

    I hope AB makes a mid season change, it would send a clear message to the players on the team that this crap is not acceptable. Our season is toast anyway at this point at least we would get a head start on a coach change.
    Our new coaches need to take Pre Season seriously and play our starters. I do not care if we get injuries during pre season, I want the players that make it through pre season to be ready to play.
    TD also needs to be put on notice and probably fired, his OL and DL always are horrible he has ZERO ability to find talent in the trenches and always takes weak, injury prone and under sized linemen on both sides of the ball.

    I didn't either. I ALWAYS said that Seattle defense was Gus Bradley's baby. Quinn just inherited a talented defense and all he had to do was make sure the wheels didn't fall off. Now here in ATL........................
     
    This is what we have...

    I really, really, really hope he does since I am in senior citizen mode now and really want rest as many here do before we die.I genuinely like Quinn but history tells us that it’s not going to happen and there is over 50 years of history to draw from.

    The benefits of a good whoopin early. 
    When you were a kid, your parents or some adult told you "don't do that" at some point in your life. As kids often do, you pushed your luck, got punished in some way. Maybe you got verbally scolded, maybe you got your hand smacked or something else that wasn't that bad So, you pushed your luck again and again until you got that restrained but undeniable butt whoopin. In short, you got by and got by until someone got you straight. This is often what our team does and unfortunately, the whooping usually comes at a mid-late point in the season and leaves them searching for answers because, they though they were better than this. 
    When you were a kid, someone in your life didn't puss-foot around and went strait to that restrained but undeniable butt whoopin and you didn't do X again, did you? You immediately understood what you needed to do for that not to happen again. 
    For this I want to Thank the Vikes because, I know my team are fighters and I know you just made a much better Falcons team with a single game. Any illusions of coasting on talent and media accolades from a previous years are gone. 
    The Eagles better bring their A-Game this week.
