Dan Quinn: Master of talking like a Lion but then coaching like a Pussycat.

5 minutes left, down by 5, 4th and 2.

All gas, no brakes?

He11 no! He sends out the FG team.

Even if Bryant makes it, we still have to get the ball back and drive the field against a very good Vikings defense with little time left.

Going for it on 4th and 2 wasn't nearly the gigantic task he opted for.

Vikings were playing the run and short passes and Ryan couldn't hit the side of a barn the way he was playing in this game. No wonder Quinn didn't have faith going for it on 4th down. I could agree with you if the Falcons were consistent moving the ball int he game but while the running game was decent, the passing game was awful. Chances that if they would have went for it, they would have forced Ryan to beat them and we saw how that went all game.

It was the right call.  That yardage was well within his range.  Make the field goal it's 14-12 with right around 5 minutes left on the clock. 

The defense made the stop on the previous drive when they needed it.  You have to expect with around 5 minutes left on the clock they're going to see the ball again.
