    So basically what any true Falcon fan already knew...defense has ALWAYS been the issue holding this team back.  Arthur even knew and that's why he hired DQ to fix it.  Instead he got a Seahawks fraud who got a job based on the defense Pete built.  Why is DQ still here again?

    Where are the other Derrick Henry's? Last I checked there's only one.

    Keeping DK is a mistake. There are literally a half dozen guys we could bring in that would be better.

    What if Jake Matthews just hadn't held?  He pushed us out of two FGs in the 4th quarter.  With either one, the comeback would've been impossible.

    Dirk needs to go. His plays take way too long to develop. Matt is best in a quick strike and play-action offense.

    History proves, momentum does not carry over to next year.
    Waisted season.

    We would gave been better off. Better draft and a new GM and HC. We are just delaying cleaning house another year.

    You could have said the same exact thing last year and we know how that turned out. Seriously did we all forget about last year?

    Time will tell, but I believe this keeps the franchise in neutral...and will waste another year of Ryan and Julio's career.

    BREAKING NEWS: we flop again next year 
  18. gregoryel liked a post in a topic by vel in Moving On From Dan Quinn   
    The Falcons are currently 5-9. It is impossible for them to make the playoffs. Second year in a row. Going into this season, the Falcons were poised for a playoff push. DQ had taken over the defense. A lot of coaching experience was added to the offense (Koetter, Mularkey). The team was healthy again. Heavy investments were made on the OL to protect Matt Ryan and have a rushing attack. This was a roster with few holes. Many pre-season predictions were 10 wins. 
    8 weeks into the season and the Falcons were 1-7. They looked embarrassing in several games. Against teams they should not have, like the Colts, Titans, and Cardinals. Coaching was atrocious. It looked like they had no clue who they were playing nor who was on their own team to use. It was a plain ole cluster. 
    Post bye, we've learned that coaching roles were shifted for the better of the team. Since the bye week, the Falcons are 4-2, on pace for a realistic 6-2 finish with multiple impressive wins. The tide for some, myself included admittedly, has begun to change in favor of a potential return of Dan Quinn in 2020. 
    Then I woke up. 
    Dan Quinn needs to go. For multiple reasons, that remain unchanged regardless of the finish of this season:
    #1 He was hired to bring a top tier defense to Atlanta for once. The Falcons have not finished above #22 in defensive DVOA since 2012. That includes ALL of DQ's time here. That includes the "Top Ten" 2017 defense that was a farce all season long. They've been ordinary more times than not. Even with some top level talent on the team. He didn't succeed at the one job he was brought here to do, and that's an indictment on his coaching. They never even got to be an average unit. That's a shame. 
    #2 He's behind the times on analytics. There is a wave right now that is showing who's been swimming naked on this front, and it's revealing a lot. The teams behind on analytics are getting crushed. Ron Rivera was one and he's already lost his job. DQ is another and should be losing his job. The Panthers kept Rivera after multiple mediocre seasons because of a SB appearance back in 2015. They held on too long and ultimately fired him when it should have happened a while ago. DQ should suffer the same fate, just sooner. The Falcons need to get ahead of the analytics curve or risk wasting even more of Matt's remaining time in the NFL. 
    #3 The biggest one for me is his supreme loyalty to the players, which I believe will prevent any meaningful roster churn if he's kept around. Prime example: Vic Beasley. Vic should not be a Falcon. Plain and simple. If they were truly offered a third round pick last year at the trade deadline, that should have been made immediately. Without question. It wasn't because DQ's pride/ego got in the way and he believed he could change Vic. That means he'll feel that way about other players, which will hinder the cap and roster turnover. Even if Vic signs elsewhere, he's not netting a third round comp pick. Poor return on investment. Beyond that, TD is most likely gone, which means a new GM will come in and put his eye on a roster he has no loyalties to. Guys like Freeman and Trufant should be moved, yet with DQ around, he'd most likely go to bat to keep them because they are his guys. Even if they are underperforming vs their cap. He didn't ask for guys like Carpenter, Brown, or Sambrailo to be paid like they were, so I can't blame him. But there will be tough decisions that need to be made with this current roster that I don't believe he will be able to make with a new GM. 
    I appreciate everything DQ brought to this team. But he is not the man for the job going forward. He's got glaring flaws that I believe can be upgraded upon. If we keep DQ, we're only delaying the inevitable while also wasting precious time. Thanks for the SB run. Thanks for the slogans and the "juice". But go be a DC somewhere. Your time as HC for the Falcons is coming to an end in two weeks. It was fun.

    Bruh this is a bad take..... If anything this shows that this team have a room full of fighters...
     
    They are not checking out on a new coach lol.

    We still lost to the Buc and Saints, we still look like a sloppy dis organized team. We had this same type of fools gold at the end of last year which pretty much directly translated into another crappy season.

    ... but he still wasted half the season. He needs to be fired.

    I know, I n ow they just won. I don’t care that the team is winning meaningless games. That shouldn’t be enough to save his job or TD’s. Not having the team ready at the beginning of the year and a complete lack of consistency should be his downfall. If Blank doesn’t move on from these two, it’s going to be tough to get people to buy into the direction the franchise is going. Blank has got to be smart enough to see that these games really don’t matter. In fact they’re just self inflicting wounds by devaluing their draft assets.
    Don't get me Wrong if this game was three months ago I’d be ecstatic with the victory, but now it just frustrates me. Not because of the draft picks, but because they’re is enough talent to win against the best teams in the league. Not having the team ready, a solid coaching staff, and an effective scheme after having an entire offseason is a cardinal sin.
    Can we please fast forward through these next two games. Both will be victories, but I need to see what Mr Blank does following week seventeen.

    Meh.  It was a good win but it was the same inconsistent bs that we’ve been seeing from this team for far too long.
