I heard him on 680 this morning. He may have a point and I’m not around them to know if it’s true or not. But I will say, these Dan Quinn teams have been tougher IMO than any of the Falcons teams since Dan Reeves. Now That hasn’t brought the city a Championship, so at the end of the day it means nothing. But I do see a new level of toughness. Especially from his defense.  Just my opinion.

Why would this not be relevant in TATF? If it's something that a respected ex-player feels is negatively impacting our team, why would it not be relevant?

im about sick of these individuals that think they are the freaking "thread police".

Wasnt he the same one who complained about Smitty being too hard on players when they phuck up?

I think his comments are relevant as much to the front office as the coaching staff. The Patriots trade old players for new draft picks. We keep old players till they can't be traded, then trade more picks to move up in an attempt to make up the slack.

Sigh.... They are not even practicing - they are only doing conditioning and lifting weights right now and its only been one day. I swear ATL sports media is the worse lol

You DO understand Brian Finneran played for the Falcons for many, many years, right?  He knows what's up - he was not talking about spring practice, my friend.

Further, Finn did throw in there a caveat about the new CBA, etc.

You think Brian Finneran knows more what it takes to get a team ready or Dan Quinn?

I think Finneran knows enough to have an opinion about Falcons practices.   I don't have to AGREE with everything FINN says, just stating that he is not some clueless sportstalking head who doesn't know the sport nor what he is talking about.

Also, on balance, my opinion is that DQ is a great coach - I do think he is far from perfect and sometimes Falcons can get a little sloppy - part of that probably goes to discipline and practice habits.   Not throwing shade at DQ - honestly cannot think of who I would want as coach more - but he needs to continue to get better - just like the players.

True, but he hasn't played for the Falcons since early part of Smitty's tenure though. Quinn is probably already the most successful HC in franchise history, so I would give Quinn more of the benefit of doubt.

 

Also, the current CBA has made practices more soft all across the league. Coaches have to find more ways to get their teams ready due to limited physical practices.

I don't think Brian Finneran has the credentials to question Dan Quinn. My opinion.  Dan Quinn has a method.  Finneran doesn't like it?  Fine.  Nobody should listen to him, being an average receiver for a few years doesn't qualify to matter on this issue.

Sounds more like a hot taek to me. If he want to bich about practice he should at wait until they actually start to practice first lol

no kidding. I mean this guy even as an ex player seems to relish every chance he gets to take a dig at the team. Soft was the last few years MS was here, this team is anything but soft now, this dude is proving he's still salty and bitter

Yeah they were penalized for excessive contact in practice.

I generally like Finnerman LOL remember that LOL. think he craps on the Falcons cause he doesn't want to be a homer or **** who knows maybe he got snubbed a bit at the Branch by Quinn or Dimitroff. Or who knows somebody gave him this nugget and he is running with it. Or more than likely he just is trying the tried and true stir controversy to get ratings pop on their show.

Quinn is a decent coach. He IS an excellent talent evaluator. Great coaches don't blow the types of leads he's given away during his tenure.
