  1. Eagles have targeted Slay since last year. Stick to falcons news, figure out how to get that right.
  2. I find him to be pretty opinionated.
  3. Good thing there’s game tape. Combine performances are not the end all be all.
  4. Revis could play in Sherman’s best scheme, Sherman would be toast man to man. It is what it is.
  5. This thread says more about fans and the arguments they feel the need to create to justify their support of a ringless Ryan more than anything else. To watch Sanu yesterday and think, “how can I spin this to make Ryan look better” is kinda crazy.
  6. This really came down to the wins over the 49ers and Saints , beating the awful Panthers twice and Jags absolutely should have played no part in the equation of retaining Quinn. Those teams aren't even waiting until the season is over to start cleaning house, from benching a $50 million guaranteed QB and firing Coughlin and soon to be marrone, to firing Rivera and who knows what else in Carolina.
  7. It didn't even carryover to today.
  8. https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/why-coaches-and-qbs-should-divorce-after-five-years-of-not-winning/ "Of the 31 head coaches to win at least one Super Bowl, 27 of them won their first championship within the first five seasons with that team." So you believe Quinn is like one of the four NOT to win a SB in the first 5 years (Chuck Noll (6 seasons) or Cowher (15 seasons) if the Steelers are your example? You think of the Falcons now of the Steelers of those coaches? Good luck next year.
  9. When did the opinions of dudes who jobs were in jeopardy 24 hours carry weight? Maybe the coaching was a problem? Why wouldn't that be questioned, or is that only on defense that happens? Who's the Falcons oline coach and what's his rep?
  10. How do you imbue rookies and FA with the "positive" results of the last X games of the previous season? Injured players? The defense looked better after a certain player went prior to the last 8 games, is he benched now?
  11. Who'd show up next season hype? They have problems this year filling it up So if every half season is different, what makes you think the first 8 games of 2020 won't go differently and possibly negatively? Why positive results carry over through rookie minicamp, voluntary OTAs, mandatory OTAs, training camp,etc historically? Did the wins from the SB season 'carryover'? What does 'carryover' mean? Teams 'carryover' the mistakes they made in the late season losses to the Falcons as well? Isn't this a self serving and silly way to think how something with infinite moving parts works?
  12. So after four years nothing positive to say about Quinn or his coaching abilities? Arthur is scared of another divorce, that's all this is, he'd rather stay in a known bad relationship that reach for the unknown at this point in his life, hence the McKay reacharound. You got the next Marvin Lewis, a guy who fires himself and things get better, but shouldn't get fired by Blank, interesting. An older and more expensive Ryan and Jones with a schizophrenic fifth year coach and sundowning owner. Mora ("..was seen smelling ammonia capsules on the sidelines during a Monday Night Football broadcast"), Petrino (I left to coach the RAZORBACKS), Smith (no one else would ever consider me for their HC), and sub .500 since the SB Quinn. When can ownership get questioned? If I was selfish I'd be lauding the move as the guy has one win against my team in 4 tries, bur I just don't see success based on the track record. Its only the statitistical outliers that win a SB with a coach after the first 5 years. I put my money on that much more than a Cowher. You're not the freaking Steelers and you have nowhere the culture they were much more willing to wait after winning four in the 70s, that's an insane comparison.
  13. They have the same record as the Jets and Browns, who have two first year head coaches, one who will get fired after this season, and second year QBs. And all the 'statistical turnaround' talk just means Quinn 'crammed' his way to a passing grade in Blank's mind this year, his first quarter grades were so bad he managed to buckle down an pass a few of the last test, hardly reassuring going forward.
  14. Battling for last place with a Cam-less Panthers gets you another year? hmm....
  15. “We only play when we have to save our coaches job” is not exactly an endorsement.
