If Dan Quinn and the front office don't get it together. This disappointing season of 2018 better be a learning experience for Dan Quinn and he better improve as a head coach off of this. In 2019 we play the AFC South and the NFC West. 2019 could easily go like 2007 and 2013 again when we played the NFC West in odd years, and the Falcons have missed the playoffs the majority of the time playing the AFC South (only made the playoffs in 2011 playing that division) and if that's the case we could be 4-12. Matt Ryan has only played well every other year since he's been a Falcon. 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2018 right now he puts up good numbers, but he's off in odd years like 2011, 2013, 2015, or 2017. The Falcons are obviously going to lose a lot to free agency after this year due to cap space especially on the offensive side of the ball. If the offense dips again in 2019 and Dan Quinn & Marquand Manuel's defensive schemes continue to fail, we're in for another long one. Looking at our NFC West schedule next season, the Seahawks and Rams could be losses, and the Falcons haven't beaten the Cardinals in Arizona since 2001, making the 49ers in San Francisco our only win but with a healthy Jimmy G back that's not even guaranteed. So that's 1-3 vs. the NFC West with the only win being in Santa Clara or Arizona. The Falcons have been awful against AFC teams for awhile now, therefore, that makes us no better than 2-2 vs. the AFC South, but 0-4 could be a possibility too! We suck vs. the AFC at home, so that makes the Jaguars and Titans automatic losses, and the Falcons don't win in Houston, even in the Super Bowl, and Deshaun Watson could have a big day against the Falcons. The Falcons would let Andrew Luck run all over us in Indy, and the Colts own us in the series 14-2 just like the Browns do. The Falcons would probably draw the Eagles and Packers again, so that's about 1-1 right there. Then you have the NFC South. The Panthers have continued to play better than the Falcons in the regular season, even if we beat the Panthers more often. The Saints are ahead of us right now. I'm just saying it right now. With all the free agency moves and the cap space stuff going on with the Falcons. 2019 could be a make or break year for Dan Quinn. 2019 could be like 2007 or 2013 (win-loss record wise at 4-12) if we don't be careful.
