It's really not Quinn's fault


Recommended Posts

I can't believe I just posted that title! Of course it's Quinn's fault! OK, but hear me out....

Quinn used to know how to coach defense. Did he forget? I doubt it.

So what has happened is Quinn has "lost the lockerroom." What does that even mean?

I think it means that many players have realized they don't really have to listen to Quinn, because (a) they're getting paid, and (b) Quinn is not going to hold them accountable.

And here's the clincher -- since they've realized that, they are slacking off.

That's not really Quinn's fault ... the players are getting paid millions and slacking off. But it also is Quinn's fault, because the head coach is supposed to be effective at dealing with this problem.

So maybe it's time for Quinn to increase his skill set. Bench some players ... even top ones ... for not "doing their job" or not bringing their best energy. Even if it is a huge downgrade.

Let the players know it is a priviledge to get playing time ... it's even easier to do now that the season is lost.

He11, even hold an anonymous poll to let the players designate the top 4 players who are not doing their job, and then share the results with the whole lockerroom, and then sit those sorry azzes on the bench.

If they dont respect you as coach. One cannot force them. It has to come from within or you as a coach have to lead the way with examples and set tougher standards with dicipline and consistency so people take you seriously.

That has been an issue with Dan Quinn.

Hes not a leader NEVER was.

He was byproduct of a system with highly gifted players who had their own accountability.

Quinn HAS to take onus end of the day and gracefully call it quits.

If he really wants people and players in league to respect him he should move on.

With such talent we have ...its totally unacceptable to display such performance week after week in NFL.

You almost had me until this line...You do that and the players will frag each other. That not a good thing. See Vietnam. 

Yeah, probably true. But he11, right now they're sleepwalking and should be ashamed. So what is there to lose?

If they don't like it, then let them wake the he11 up.

When you’re the leader, it’s up to you to keep your group focused and playing up to its potential. 

Therefore, when a coach loses his group, it’s time to go. That’s not even saying DQ can’t coach. It’s just saying his time here has come to an end. 

Yep. It's over. Loser mentality and culture is back to our favorite same ol birds. Need new faces or nothing is gonna change.

He'll do fine where he goes next, but it's over. Blow it up.

Yep. It’s sad for me too because I really like DQ and think he’s a good football coach. There’s just no coming back from where we are aside from a deep playoff run which I don’t see happening barring a miracle. If the games had all been one score losses to good teams, there could be reason for hope.

As far as accountability goes, didn't Ricardo Allen say something to that effect in a post-game interview?

I really don't get it....the last couple of years it seemed like the defense got better when DQ took over play calling as would usually happen...and the D actually looked a lot better.

But for whatever reason the calls on D are now a straight 4 man rush with everyone else playing loose zone or loose man-to-man.  So bland...

It’s definitely Quinn’s fault.  
 

He built this team

He coaches this team

Any successful team takes on the identity of the coach, and these players are tuned out to the identity the coach is trying to instill.  These are his guys.  If you can’t get your own guys to buy in then you sure can’t get others to buy in.

No need for a poll, the coaches and players know who is not pulling their weight. The question is will they do anything about it? So far they haven't.

I've been saying it ain't all Quinn's fault.

 The D Line whiffs on just about every qb sack

How the secondary is awful and untalented 

How Freeman cant see a hole and hit it.

How O Line is average at best this year 

How wrs are dropping passes 

Ryan's questionable decision making to this point. 

Quinn deserve blame but it is definitely not all his fault. Every player has got to be held responsible

Deshaun Watson breaking down our defense:

 

Wow he's right though. If I was AB I want a body camera on Quinn during preparation for the game and before the game and at halftime just to hear what's going on. If it's the players that have quit, don't care who they are they need to be canned. If it's lack of leadership from Quinn and staff they need to be canned. If it's both we need to change the team name and start over. Lol

I think they're mad he fired Manuel. Possibly Sark and or Armstrong also.
