kwfalconsfan Posted August 22, 2015 Share Posted August 22, 2015 (edited) Like many of you, I was so sick of the "bend don't break" philosophy the past many years. I get it...with all of the injuries we had the past 2 seasons, if you gamble too much with inexperienced players, big plays will happen...mistakes will happen. The problem is, our coaches should have seen it wasn't working after the first few games and changes. If you're going to lose, lose attacking instead of letting teams pick you apart.I am excited to see in just 2 short quarters of pre-season play, that Quinn's defense is NOT going to sit back and let lousy QB's light us up. Yes, I watched as the announcers talked of "Geno Smith's coming out party!" because he was playing the Falcons. I watched as rookie Bridgewater had his "Coming out party!" vs the Falcons. It's been painful watching this, but I don't think it will happen with Quinn.Yes, our players are different this season and hopefully better. Yes, schemes are going to be better suited to the players. But the #1 difference will be the philosophy of ATTACK and make the opposing team make plays to win. I liked Mike Smith and he did a LOT right the past few years. Had we not had 5 rookies starting on defense last year, it's possible he could still be the coach for years to come. However, his "bend don't break" philosophy "broke" his job... Can't wait for the new season to start!
