Quinn Espn Shortly


Recommended Posts

sum up for those of us watching nfln?

He talked about Beasley first. Said he was drafted because of his speed and ability to get after the QB. Said he was also drafted because he is an obvious fit in scheme.

Jalen Collins was drafted because of length, speed, and ability to play close to the line of scrimmage. Also drafted for what he can do and not what he can't.

Tevin Coleman drafted for toughness and big play ability.

Hardy drafted because his ability to get open against zones fits Shannahans offense perfectly.

Didn't really talk about Grady Jarretts drafting but mentioned how they were some of the first people to help Jarretts family because his home burned down last night.

I love the Quinn interviews. I get the feeling that this is not a rebuilding year as much as it will be a rebooting year. This guy has been great for the Falcons.

He said a lot of what we've already heard from them about the picks.

I need to listen again, but when they asked if he was nervous about Beasley going before we picked he didn't sound like it would have been a big deal if Beasley was gone. I wonder who they had in mind and if they would have picked Ray or Dupree.

No reason it has to be a rebuilding year in the traditional way. We have sufficient talent on offense to hang if the defense can stop the bleeding. With two new schemes, I expect a painful first month. The good thing is we will be playing the NFC East most of that first month. We should be playing better as we get into our division games.

Rebuilding is the wrong word alot of people are using. Retooling is more accurate. Amazing draft so far. I feel like we're a year away from being serious contenders but what a nice start on this 2 year plan. I was iffy on Quinn and TD after FA but they really knocked this draft out of the park and all the picks were value picks that made sense. Feels nice to see this team headed in a clear direction.

they were 6-10 and smith gave away at least two games with dumb coaching

i could easily see a 10-6 season if there are no major injuries maybe better depending on how improved the defense is if it even is because it seems like every year it will be better but there worse than the prior year somehow.

If we are successful this year, my biggest hope is that Quinn is disciplined enough to stick to his original plan & not throw band aids on them like Smith did.

yeah , I'm just happy Babs won't be playing DE and Tyson Jackson won't be dropping back into coverage. Through the Draft and FA this team has added at least 7 starters.

Every time I hear him speak, just blows me away... I feel like a little kid listening to his hero, and I'm a 33 year old man which is weird to say the least.

Talk talk talk...Smith never talked. Blank talks a lot because he is a salesman. You are impressed by talkers and, you are 33?
