    wouldn't have waited that long--would've made sure i got who i wanted.
    just like every other team in the league did except us.  all quinn's boys were gone--so he hit the panic button!
    would rather have the lsu backer or the safety mckinney from bama.

    i've watched these drafts in every sport for about 40 years now and it happens every time an atlanta teams' pick is up.  then they come back from the break--announce the pick and then get right into who's picking next.  and in the case this year--with the cowboys next, there wasn't even a doubt they would spend more than a minute talking about atlanta's pick.

    yes--i actually thought this was one of the first times every that quinn made a smart "in-game" coaching decision with time management.

    dude it's not that hard.  if there's two receivers on the same side of the field and we are in a man defense-if i'm the outside corner or lined up outside--i'm taking whichever "man" goes to the outside.  if i'm inside defender--i'm taking whichever receiver that goes "inside."  how hard is that to figure out.  if for some reason they both run inside--i stay with my initial guy.  he** i learned that in backyard football.

    jgsbirds1 got a reaction from PokerSteve in Baldy Rips Falcons Goal Line D   
    no pass rush at all--so one would think with only 3 or 4 rushing that surely we would have some people in the back covered--should be 7 or 8 back because they sure as he** aren't rushing the passer!
    this crap is ridiculous!
    i'm a teacher and basketball coach and today i ate lunch with one of our assistant football coach.  this guy played college football at shorter.  we watched the highlights of the cards-falcons game.  he's a fan of the cowboys so he didn't watch falcons game sunday.  when he watched our highlights his mind was blown at the lack of the defense, missed assignments, just straight up terrible tackling.  how can our assistant football coach look at our defensive tape and right off the bat say, "can't possibly be lined up right, who's responsible for the rb, why is #20 lined up on the line in the goal line defense, etc, etc, etc.  guys quinn has totally lost it!  we constantly do these things week in and week out.  deion jones not forcing a ball carrier inside to where he has help near the goal line.  this is basic football stuff!  how blank has let this go for so long is unbelievable.
     
    please tell me why would quinn not onside kick after bryant missed the extra point?
    1:53 on the clock and we only have two timeouts...that is a no-brainer!  one first down wins the game for the cards.  so atleast give yourself two opportunities to get possession back.  1 with an onside kick recovery, 2-by getting your defense to make a 3-down stop and getting the ball back with right around a minute to go with no timeouts.  quinn elected to give away the number one opportunity by kicking deep.  why?  our defense has only stopped them 3x all game.  now grant it--zona is stupid too.  sooooo stupid that it almost let quinn get away with not kicking the onside kick-as murray really didn't get that first down and he went out of bounds to boot.  should've been a kicking situation for the cards with the clock stopped.  instead after instant replay clearly showed he didn't get the first down-the officials ruled first down and that's your ball game.  quinn should've kicked the onside!!!!
     
    he's a complete moron when it comes to in-game decision making.  was sunday, was the first game he coached in the preaseason years ago, and will always be--and whoever they hired to help him with that this year is an idiot too.

    Comment I posted in that article:
    Good one, Jeff.
    Little game management things like not questioning 2 obvious bad spots giving first downs, not vociferously defending a severely injured player over throwing helmet, these have added up over time to really tick me off.

    He stands stoically on the sidelines while the team and season appear to be circling the drain again this year.

    The bigger picture, well-covered here, shows a staff that is not prepared at the start and not reacting and adjusting enough in game to fix issues such as that pass play that worked all game long and ended the game.

    I also, a Falcons fan for over 45 years, am caring less and less and close to tuning the team out.

    I already regret buying Sunday ticket to be able to see this crappy coaching and undisciplined play every week.

    a few years ago when drew brees broke some td record or passing record against the redskins in a primetime game-can't remember the year.  but the saints were blowing them out and all of the talk was centered on this record for brees.  and after a redskins punt and change of possession--the broadcast went to commercial like normal.  BUT-coming back in from the break--someone's mic (maybe the director/producer) mic was open and i heard vividly, "this is the td right here."  the next shot is to the game and brees drops back and hits a wide open wr for a long td pass down the sideline.  oh and to make it even better--stadium officials had just brought brees' family down to the sideline.  just in time for brees to come over and celebrate with them and do a quick interview.  could've been coincidence i guess.  but i've worked in tv all my life--that one looked and sounded kind of fishy to me.

    Its entertainment.  The part about bringing his family to the sidelines.   That reminded me of Tiger Woods winning the masters back in April.  His family, including his mother, were on hand to congratulate him at the 18th.  The other golfers had formed a line to congratulate him on the way into the clubhouse. It was soo soapy and contrived.  Nike even had a " career" tribute commercial on deck immediately after the win. Ratings ( which were spectacular) were thru the roof.  Thats what these storylines in sports are about. Ratings.  Live sports is what is keeping cable tv going. Without live tv, the cable industry would cave and it would be strictly streaming. ( which is why the NFL and network s are slowly shifting to a streaming platform).
