Here's my solution.  Fire Thomas Dimitroff right now.  Start the GM search.  Keep quiet about coaching changes for the time being, but the plan should be to let the new GM decide whether to keep Quinn

DQ is the DC. The defensive coordinator of this team is doing a terrible job. They are the worst defense in the NFL. The previous DC was fired and replaced with the current DC because he was going to

An extra point wouldn’t have sent the game to OT. AZ had plenty of time and time outs to score.

Eh.. Smitty had a bad track record in the playoffs though.. It was well known that even if we consistently make it to the playoffs we would fail to get past the first round. We have gone deeper into the playoffs twice under Quinn . 

Smitty got progressively farther each time.  HeII, he was a Harry "Two Left Feet" Douglas drop from SB47 vs a beatable old Ravens team.

The previous DC was fired and replaced with the current DC because he was going to do a better job. He is failing at that. Hence, firing the DC is a no brainer. It just so happens to be the HC. DQ made this bet. He's losing it and at the same time losing his job in the process. The offense took their lumps but are finding their footing. If they win any games in the near future, it will be because of the offense scoring 50 points because 30 clearly doesn't cut it. 

Smitty got fired for less. He was 2-6 by the bye week. DQ is headed for a worse output with an easily more talented roster.

@vel Another guy's take on variation of Cover-3?

 

This is my belief. I think its NOT cover 3 Sky and I think 59's action is the proof. Zone hand off would have occurred between him and 36, and 59 handles the flat. 59 just keeps on running like Forrest Gump.

Im fine being wrong if Im wrong. No biggy. Look at 45 and 27 dedicated to their zones. Why wasn't 59 dedicated to his zone? Unless we ran some absurd zone man combo, there is no reason for 59 to play man as he did.

Sure sure, and if we had tom brady we would have won multiple championships. See of stupid the "If" game is. 

I disagree, Tom Brady would have been in the same position Ryan has been in his entire career. Crappy defenses, and changing OC's every 3 years, is not conducive to winning.

Blank has hired 4 head coaches. 3 have been former DC's and our defense has pretty much sucked for 4 decades. It's been complete crap for the majority of Ryan's career, with a few mediocre outliers.

TD has assembled a team that should of won a SB and is widely regarded to be one of the most talented teams on paper. He's done a wonderful job with the cap as well. I don't see why he gets the axe.

This infatuation about firing TD is what I call “Irrational Exuberance”. TD is not responsible for the schemes and style of defense the team plays. He is not going anywhere and the fan base needs to chill. DQ’s defensive schemes are outdated.

My point is that these if conditions are silly.

Its not absurd. It looks like he is trying to get them to understand pattern match zone instead of spot dropping. They are supposed to drop then match post pattern distribution. Again I am not 100% sure this is just on cambell. Even though I think he is bad. This looks like one of shanny's plays the sail concept and you run the hb into the zone late. if this was spot drop 3 that would be cambell. If this is match 3 that would be whomever had weakside #1 needed to hand him off deon should carry the route cambell had and cambell lost zone integrity. Its just not 1 people the communication is bad. I believe this is what they tried to install in the offseason and the communication issue was never resolved.

Whenever they turn their backs and run to the spot, it's a wrap.

I agree with him though. People are losing responsibilities on incredibly simple plays. That's where almost all the big plays against us have come from.

That is Ish. Debo and Vondre have the middle with Kazee and Ish outside. Ish is just ******* gone.

Said the same thing before 2008 season when he predicted Falcons would win one game.  Might be right this time...

Yeah but pretty much everybody said that in 08 including most Falcon fans. lol Of course then Matt Ryan makes his very  first NFL pass to Michael Jenkins for a seventy something  yard td against the Lions who proceed to have the first 0-16 season ever.

I know that what I am about to say is probably going to get me flamed, but here goes anyway...

 

7 or 8 weeks ago, most everyone on this board was talking about how good this team is, how far in the playoffs we are going to go, if we would win the Super Bowl this year or next, how DQ is one of the best coaches this franchise has ever had, and now we (generally speaking) are wanting him to be fired mid-season. Let's not get things mixed up, I am not happy with a lot of the things going on with the team. I do believe that we have one of the most talented teams in the NFL, and our record should be way better than it is. I also recall how bad our Falcons looked in DQ's first year as HC here. My 2 cents, let him finish out the year and see what happens. I don't think that a coaching change at this point in the season will help us make a playoff or SB run, so let the season play out. I am still going to cheer on my Falcons every game that is televised, but I'm not going to be expecting much while watching. MY PHILOSOPHY FOR THE REST OF THIS YEAR IS, EXPECT THE WORST AND HOPE FOR THE BEST...

Watch the presnap motion by Ish. A live look at the play tells us more than the little computer generated graphic. This bust is clearly on 59.

To me it looks like ish thinks we are cover 4 and vondre thought cover 3

Communication break down between the two. They are not playing as a team but bunch of individual players doing their own thing.

I think Reeves was just coming into his own with Vick. I still think that was a bad move. 

There had been heavy Reeves fatigue before Vick got to the team. The 9-6 season gave him some rope but after the disaster of 2003 everyone at the time seemed pretty happy with the decision to move on to a new coach. In retrospect and seeing how the whole Vick thing turned out it's easy to second guess it, but it was a very popular decision at the time. It's also very hypothetical as to whether Reeves being here would have kept Vick out of trouble. Let's not forget that during his first year starting Vick was on a rookie contract and had everything to prove. By 2004 you couldn't turn your head without seeing a Vick add, he had a massive contract and was a city and national darling. Reeves may not have been enough to keep his head from getting big.
