Horrible call on fourth down at the end of the game.

 

Ridiculous call by Coach Quinn in that situation anyone could clearly see that we would have probably a hard time getting the ball back and that we needed to go for it as that would probably be our only chance to actually win the game.

Them not having penalties called all games is the reason they moved the ball

If the refs called even a fraction of the obvious calls they missed....the vikes would not have had any offense at all.

 

I am shocked Clayborns face mask did not get ripped off

Just like he put too much faith in CJ Goodwin, Quinn put too much faith in his defense!

If his attention to coaching falls into the same category, then its easy to see why the offense sometimes struggles.

Especially when the coach shows a lack of faith in their ability to get it done, even though they converted earlier.

I get on Quinns case all the time for some of his calls, but i don't have a big problem with kicking the fg on that one. Its not like their offense had been putting up massive points on us all game. Not Quinns fault that Goodwin got absolutely abused on a simple slant route the following drive. Embarrassing af. And pathetic af as well.

Of course it is Quinns fault! 

He put him in that position! 

If not for Quinn, Goodwin would be playing WR in Canada or the Arena League!

Goodwin has played well in some games. Dude isn't just some trash CB. He has more than proven he is a better CB than he was a WR. He simply just got rekt on that play. Quinn can't help that. Its a freaking slant route man. No way should you get torched that badly. ESPECIALLY on a 3rd down at the end of the game. Just pathetic.

Quinn needs a quality ASSISTANT or ADVISOR! The young LB Corps needs VETERAN LEADERSHIP ( how many tackles did they total today? )...Special Teams, is an accident waiting to happen, week in week out announcers laugh at it & we keep on going, if not for the penalty, a block? 1-Armstrong must go now, 2-Sark, if the "O" keeps this pace, he must go...Julio, where was he the 2nd half....3- As for the 2nd half or ALL 2ND HALFS going back to last season...Just WHAT ADJUSTMENTS does this team make at Halftimes? ie. Quinn needs HELP!

The point is we still would have had to get the ball back either way to win the game

If we don’t make it on 4th down

or

Even if we made the FG

the Vikings were moving it most of the day including a 90 yard drive in the 2nd half and our D was obviously gassed

so with only what just under 5 minutes left in the game how can you rationalize that we needed to kick a FG

We stopped them the previous drive.

No we didn't, it was a chop block call that backed them up deep in their own territory and the Vikes went safe with play calls because they were clearly trying not to turn it over.  Not the same thing as a "regular" defensive stop, unless your defensive strategy is to always assume their will be an offensive penalty.

Been saying that since training camp......and to your first point....Quinn fired or let walk all of his senior assisstant coaches before the season.  I get his relationship with MM but Richard Smith was a coaching veteran.  So was Bobby Taylor for the offense.

Points win prizes, at the end of the day. Just one touchdown might've unchained them, got them overthinking and our defence could've capitalised. They haven't really been behind recently to test that out.

So by that logic the vikes did not stop us then either??

This. The defense obviously got the stop with the help of a penalty but that was the one stop we made that we needed to make. We had Wreh-Wilson and goodwin out there. The smart move by the coach would've been to ask the offense (pretty much at full health compared to our defense) to make up for the terrible play all game by coming through there. A field goal really doesn't do much for us there with so little time left. This was a terrible coaching decision and I hope Quinn learns from this.

Don’t hate the call. Kick the field goal and pin them deep in their territory on the kickoff. If you get the 3 and out you get the ball back with two plus minutes and only need a field goal to win it.

my biggest complaint coaching wise was three timeouts before the half and they are inside their 10. Good stop on first down. Call the time out and attack them. If they don’t pick up the first on second down then most likely they would have ran the ball to force us to use our final timeout and punt it with around a minute left.

What logic?  What are you talking about?  The Vikes were facing 1st and 25 on that drive the other poster was referencing.  Most teams, that are ahead, late in a game, will play it very safe in that situation.  Yes technically we stopped them, but the Vikes were not really trying to get a first down, as much as they were trying to avoid a turnover or make a stupid mistake that would have given the Falcons the ball back with excellent field position.  They punted and pinned us deep.  We then were able to drive inside the Vikes 35 yard line and instead of going for it on 3rd and three, with basically the game on the line, we went for a FG.  And the Vikes did stop us, we were 1 for 10 on third downs in the game, and most of those were not penalty related.  So I really don't know what you are saying.
