Belichick & Quinn


Recommended Posts

Turns out they have more in common than one would think.  In 2019, both are bucking an industry trend and will serve as Head Coach & de facto Defensive Coordinator.  Both will call the plays on game day.  Belichick last called his teams defensive plays in 2010.  Seems like an odd decision with his age.

So who you got?  Who will have a better season as DC: Quinn or Belichick?

In my uneducated opinion, these are the two best defensive coaches in football.  Should be a fun year

Hard to form that opinion. The Falcons don’t rock the same defense as Quinn had in Seattle. BB has several veterans on his defense along with the addition of Michael Bennett. BB is much more disciplinary than Quinn from what I’ve seen. The last time Quinn took over as DC for Atlanta good things happened. That’s a tough one to call

Quinn is from the Belichick/Saban tree and are friends. With both.

I love Quinn but do you think Vic Beasley would be on the patriots roster at 12.8m? LOL that’s some funny shet don’t care who you are

I couldn't agree more, but I'm still hoping Quinn and Beasley have the last laugh on us and the whole NFL sports talking head universe.

He would have been traded for assets last year.  No doubt.  They didn’t keep Flowers so Vic is certainly gone.

But the difference in the 2 units is simple: depth.  We have 10 defensive players earning over $1,000,000.   The Patriots have 21 players on defense making over $1,000,000

My take is this defense is going to look like a completely different animal this season from last. So many huge changes, starting of course with Quinn taking over as DC. About five or six games in, this team could start to become pretty dam scary on both sides of the ball.

I don’t think a lot of fans realize the upgrade our defense will get simply by having DQ running game planning for it, and calling the plays.

i agree with @Falconsin2012 that DQ is up in same category as Belichick when it comes to defense.

Man I’d love to be wrong on this one....I’m ready for crow pie come Dec and would be the first one to admit it but I just can’t see it

 I hope your right but for now....you can’t mention DQ and BB in the same breath. Let’s hope DQ becomes a great HC ....the jury’s still out.

Exactly. We're going from a timid beginner in Manuel trying to find his way to an aggressive-minded, SB-winning, detail-oriented coach with excellent rapport with his players, especially the DL guys.

Actually, Belichick has been controlling his defense. Quinn has to learn the rest of what Bill knows. Decision making.

Why is Bill & the HC of 28-3 in the same sentence ? Beyond a 28-3 discussion . 

Because the game was evenly matched and went to OT.  Our coaching staff and players dominated the first half.  Theirs dominated the 2nd half.

Its not like it was a Broncos 49ers SB mismatch

Dude you’re getting me excited...you could be right

I've been more skeptical than most anybody else in here for most seasons, but I've got a really good feeling about this defense this year. Quinn taking the bull by the horns and assuming the DC role, bringing back Shede in a such a monumental moment in his life, having Bob Sutton to coach up these players like few coaches on the planet can do it, Senat working his butt off this off-season and on and on I could go. 

My biggest concern I freely admit is  Vic Beasley, but if this DL is really good with Quinn as DC and Sutton working with them, I think he'll get caught up in the flow and be an important contributor.

I see where you wanted to go but that’s not exactly how football works . “We dominated the 1st .. they dominated the 2nd & won .” I’ve seen Mike Smith do this 30x .. catch my drift ?

Is this an insult?  Mike Smith was one **** of a football coach.  

50 wins in 71 games.  3rd fastest HC  in NFL history to reach 50 wins.  He has the same career winning % as Pete Carroll.
