I think he gives you all hope. That's always a good thing. If the offense doesn't make up for the defense though, I don't see him being there more than 3 seasons, unless he can get the defense turned around. The fact that TD's still there may make that pretty difficult, as he's the one that sent you all down the road you're on to begin with.

That said....as long as the Falcons front office stays outta the way, I think Quinn is the guy to be able to do it. I just don't see the front office being able to keep their fingers outta the honey pot though.

I honestly think TD is on a short leash and he would go before Quinn would...

He'll have them more energized initially. Bring back an excitement which would elevate their play.

Not so much offensively as much as defense and special teams. If the defensive issues boil down to a couple items that he identifies then there could be a dramatic improvement, but I think he'll need a couple off seasons to get his personnel.

I liked him as a DC. We dont really know what he'll bring as a HC.

I think he was the best signing Atlanta could have gotten to replace Smith.

He'll probably have some ups and downs this season.

Another off season to get more players on defense will probably get Atlanta back to having those contending seasons.

Usually defensive HC's like to run the ball and that will be a very tricky situation in Atlanta.

I still think Rex would've been better. The Falcons need someone in your face like Ryan, plus Rex and Mattie boy could wear matching Coat of Arms crests on their team blazers.laugh.png

Key word there is USUALLY. When you have a really good QB and one of the best WR in the game - along with the "most of the time reliable" Roddy and now Hankerson (not 100% sure what to expect but is an upgrade from a very good #3 Harry Douglas), I am sure we will see plenty of passing. I have no doubt that Ryan throws for over 4,000 again.

It's an unknown right now honestly. He could have a great first year and turn this team around but he could also burn out like plenty of other first time HCs. Who knows. I think he'll help the defense a bit but not to top 15 status. He seems like he wants to build through the draft and it's going to take more than one year to do that. I personally have the falcons at 7-9 right now, but that's before the draft so...

It's really hard to say. I mean, I don't know how much of a role he played in shaping Seattle's defense; it could have been extensive or he may have just been effectively following Carroll's philosophy. So in this case, since we're talking about the falcons, I think it's ok to say we have to wait and see. Personally, I hope he fails miserably. **** him.

It was Carroll's defense. He taught it to Bradley, then when Bradley gotta HC job, he taught it to Quinn, and so on and so on.

Tony Dungy did the same thing, just look at his coaching tree. Everyone always gave Kiffin the credit for the Tampa 2, but it was always Dungy's defense. He doesn't get near;y the credit he should. Kiffin put the finishing touches on it so to speak.

That's not to say Quinn doesn't know hat he's doing, he just needs to get the right players, and that takes a couple of years, but that's just the case with building a solid defense.

Lol wut? Tampas defense was good after Dungy left.

Indys defense was putrid the entire time Dungy was there.

Colts I believe had the number 1 defense in 2007 in points, and 3rd in yards. In 2008, I believe they were 11th in yards and 7th in points. In 2005, they were 2nd in points and 11th in yards. In 2002, it was 8th in points and 7th in yards I believe, the first year he was there.

That, and in 2006 it played great in the playoffs.

It was may not have been good the whole time, however their defense was pretty good for a lot of the time he was there, he seemed to have a pretty good defense designed.

Plus, while TB's defense was good after he left, that may have been because they continued to follow a defensive scheme/game plan that he designed, that other Bucs coaches had learned from him.

It was a combined effort between Carroll and Bradley. They knew What They wanted but had to wait almost three offseasons to get the right players to make it work.

There's an article about it somewhere. I'll Try to link it when I get on my computer.
