A couple of years ago, Quinn was still in his honeymoon period as Head Coach and regarded by many on this board as greater than Smith and greatest all-time for the Falcons.  I am curious now how much that has changed in the last year or so.

Of course, Reeves and Quinn are the only two that have hit a Super Bowl for the Falcons (but both losses).  However, especially if Quinn does not make it past this year, Smith will actually have the most wins still as HC.

Quinn also has a 36-29 record in regular season and 3-2 postseason record.  Reeves was 49-59 for the Falcons in regular season and 3-2 in the postseason but his real success was probably in Denver not here.  And, Smith was 66-46 in regular season but terrible in postseason at 1-4.  Glanville had a 27-37 regular season record and 1-1 postseason record, and Mora had a 26-22 regular season record and also a 1-1 postseason record.

Why do people like reeves.  He had a losing record and really wasn’t a very good coach.

1998 and 2002 rings a bell? We never got to see Dan Reeves with a franchise QB (full season) except for 2002, and in 2003 Vick got injured. What if Dan Reeves coached the 2004 Falcons instead of Jim Mora? What if Dan Reeves coached Michael Vick and Matt Ryan consistently year after year?

Dan Reeves couldn't win a super bowl either with Elway.

People like Reeves, because he was easy to like and he had previous success with the Broncos, but the reality was that he was mediocre. Reeves did assemble a Super Bowl team, and you can't overlook that.

I can't understand the love that people had for Glanville. To me, Glanville was a joke. When Jerry Glanville was hired, it was just another half-*** attempt by the Smith family to get anyone they could to coach their pathetic franchise.  I could not stand Glanville before he was the Falcons coach, while he was the Falcons coach, and long after his hick-butt got run out of town. People will say "The Falcons were exciting to watch under Glanville," but it was Prime Time that made the team somewhat relevant. The team was terrible under Glanville.

What if pig flew out of my ***.  Reeves was an average coach who had some talented teams and like to play his QBs to much during the preseason.
