Some uncomfortable facts.

1. DQ can walk 10 feet and tell his OC to run no huddle.

2. DQ can tell his QB at anytime to check off plays.

3. A QB can and does need to dispute his coach at times. 

4. There are some fantastic posters here. But there are also some of the most hysterical, disloyal, whiney, hyperbolic and uninformed fans I have ever heard. It means something that every city in the league out cheers us in our own stadium.

5. You want a rush? Stop doing the equivalent of 3 off tackle runs in a row. Also check your ego DQ.  Love ya man but you need some coaching, scheme help. We got a return specialist. A long snapper. A 3rd down rusher. It's time DQ brought in a great pass rush coach/consultant.

6. Really young team. Tons of new guys. You have to wonder how smart it is to use 15-20 combinations and having guys out of position. What about lines gelling and developing teamwork? 

7. With guys like Coleman, Sanu, Julio it would sure be nice to see NO's Peyton would be doing with screens of all kinds.

Have at it.

I agree with the OP. I think this is going to be another tough year. Too many poor decisions by the GM over the years and a coaching staff that needs some upgrades. There are also lots of young guys in the mix for significant playing time. Like it or not, it's not gonna be a struggle. I'm not saying DQ needs to be DQ'd, but he definitely needs to re-evaluate his hires and get some guys in here that can maximize the personnel available to them. I do not like stubborn coaches.

DQ is on headphone with Shanahan. No huddle takes planning. It's developed in practice with play lists.

Anyhow, I don't want DQ fired. And because of the personnel changes, I wantShanahan to succeed totally. 

But what I do really want to know? I want to know if DQ as a new coach sat down and really learned the offensive playbook. How can a defensive orientedcoach not help in deeply learning and understanding the offensive playbook? To me, that was a large off season priority.

Some more...

1.Falcons Defense owned in Fantasy 1.5%.

Only other Teams Defense with a lower Fantasy % than Falcons. 

Saints 1.1

Titans 1.0

Browns 0.9

Chargers 0.8

I would still take all four Defenses over Ours!

Ga Cam had 373 Fantasy points last year and he should be the first pick in Draft!

Cam gets to play the Falcons D and Saints D twice each every year!

Just like in the old days,

Joe Montana had the same advantage and why some say it was the Saints and Falcons  D that made him great, Brady's Better!

2. 2016 Matt Ryan/OC Lil Shanny Como is still Unowned in most Leagues at 37.8% Owned.  

FYI- Mole Brees is still owned at 100% and I personally selected Stafford over him.

 

3. JJ and Freeman are still going Reg. in the Top Ten Picks of  all the Drafts:D!

4. Most drafts Wr Sanu is taken by someone in the later rounds, he is at 48.2%B)!

5. Tamme is leading our TE race at 1.6 to Hooper 0.8,:rant:

but someone else,

like ole GonZo's 100% owned would be nice to settle down MR nervous tick!

DQ was brought in to build up the defense. The keys to the offense have been handed to Shanny so Quinn can concentrate on the defense. Shanny has total control of this offense people.

Somewhere along the line we made a small deal with the devil and its backfired. We'll see what the season holds.

I'll have to go back and look again then because I don't recall a Falcons game where Kyle wasn't on the sideline.

He was definitely in the booth. I remember it vividly because I was like "his hair looks weird.". You are right though, he typically is on the sideline. They may have tried something new and let him see the field. Whatever it was, it didn't work lol.

All coaches are stubborn. All the good ones at least. That's how you hey good. You have to stand on your beliefs and go with you gut. Lombardi was stubborn as h3ll. So was Walsh, Parcells, Ditka, Belichik, Coughlin, Madden, Landry. A flexible coach is an unemployed coach. Stubborn means you believe in your system and when it's run right with the right assortment of players the stubbornness pays off. Plus players take advantage of soft coaches.

That's incorrect. Coaches are there to maximize the talents of the players afforded to them. It's not about going down with the ship with a scheme that isn't flexible. That's stubborn and selfish

Coaches are there to build a winning team based on the philosophy they were hired for. And to make their philosophy a reality they need certain types of players with special traits. That's why the good coaches target SPECIFIC types with SLECIFIC traits. They are there to maximize the talents of their players as well.

 

I've NEVER in all my years playing and watching football played for, or seen a coach that wasn't stubborn. They all tweak their systems and update things but good coaches just aren't flexible like you're trying to say. Tom Landry was finally fired because he was still doing the same old 70's ish that he was popular for. The game had evolved and players no longer brought in to what he was selling. And YES most coaches go down with the ship.

 

Mike Smith got flexible at the back end of his tenure and it got him fired. If he'd stayed stubborn and kept a ground control game with a Tampa 2 defensive philosophy. Instead he flexed and sh*t fell apart. Belichik is probably the most stubborn coach in the NFL but he's tweaked his system. He's not a flexible coach. It has to be done HIS way. Asante Samuel didn't like playing in NE because he said it was like a boot camp. The only thing coughlin got flexible on was dining players for the smallest little things. He didn't get flexible with his philosophy. Give me some examples of coaches you think are flexible?
