I think that question was answered during hiring season from "experts" and fans

Just paying attention to the different energy between us and the Jets. I was in the Todd Bowles camp when we were still shopping. He might have worked out, but I can't say that I'm unhappy at all with Quinn.

even if it was Rex, Atlanta was the best situation coming in, mostly due to having a true franchise qb running the show. No matter who the coach was their #1 job would have been to fix the defense

Beating the Titans and Jets is cute, but what about the good teams?

You know as well as I do we won't have an accurate read of this team until 5 games into the regular season,

That being said through 2 preseason games there have been a few consistencies with the starters

Questionable run blocking

Offense moves the ball down the field

Defense can tackle

PRESSURE!

It's only preseason but you've been around long enough to have seen the exact opposite through 2 games into preseason... Can't run, can't block, can't tackle, & can't pressure.

Who knows how it will translate into the regular season but so far I'm seeing the things I wanted to see from the starters minus the run game.

I seem to remember the 0-16 Lions being 4-0 in the preseason.

0-16 staring right at us and nobody seems to care! But you.

Heh, thanks for the laugh. I'm just waiting for the team to get a real test before crowning them champs for beating Mariota and Fitzpatrick in exhibitions. This team's issues are in the second half, so two series in the first quarter don't amount to much. Otherwise, we don't lose the 2012 NFCCG.

And I'm not making any predictions about the season based on 2 preseason games.

I'm just saying I've seen horrible preseason play from the starters before and thankfully this isn't it.

The season hasn't started yet. Let's be optimistic while we can.

So I think we can safely say losing the past 2 years was worth it

It had to happen

But it's only preseason tho...

Strangefully, yes. We owe Mike Smith a big thank you. He tanked at just the right time for us to get the best coach and players. He did what he had to do for the Falcons at the expense of his own reputation.
