Define “improvement”, because that vagueness doesn’t sound like a mandate for wins.

Holding teams under 500 yard a game, keeping the Rams under 40?

Unbelievable. Like a guy taking back his girlfriend after she cheated and laying out ultimatums. You've already made up your mind so just break up. 

The season is already over. Blank knows this is about next year. He'll get that reality check with those very empty seats on Sunday.

I just heard Blank say that DQ will be a Falcon for life.

   If I were DQ I would be very nervous and only meet AB in public well lit places ....

On the plus side, we're getting the Rams at the perfect time. They're a mess right now.

Can y’all wait until after Thanksgiving to fire Quinn? I’m not a fan of playing teams that just fired their HC, they tend to play more inspired. :ninja:

 

You realize all logic goes out the window with the Falcons right? 

That being said fire Quinn before the Saints game Y’all drop a 70 burger on us.

As it does with us. :lol:

But I will gladly accept a 70 burger if it’s on the table!

At this point, Quinn has to go into the bye 4-5(maybe 3-6) to coach beyond it, and finish no worse than 10-6 to keep his job.

Would assume his defense is going to need to be dominant to show some sign of improvement and that our offense isn't just carrying us.

If he can do that, he's still going to need an overhaul on defense to cool his hot seat as this defense under him is putrid.

Oh, I would not be surprised at all to see Quinn last the entire season!!!  Besides, that's been Blank's M.O. all along....to wait until season's end to make a coaching change. 



 

Too bad he doesn't wait until the end of the season to make contract extensions, but he falls in love with his players like a moron.

Same for all the teams that sucked before they played us.  The Titans had just got killes by the Jags, and even the Cards coming off a win were still a 1-win team.

This team may not win another game, 10-6 is like some lottery pipe dream.

No more a mess than us.

Right.  I mean, to me if the offense hangs 50 on someone and we win 50-44, that's regression (from the last game, I guess it's improvement over that steaming road apple they dropped in Houston though).

We haven't had a sack in three consecutive games (last time that happened to a Falcons team was 8 years ago) knowing this was a major concern going into the off season...not a good look

It does one thing.

It gives you a head start on the coaching search.

Does it? The Falcons kept Smitty through the year and didn't fire him until afterwards and still got their guy in DQ.

You cant hire a GM in Mid season, unless he's sitting at home unemployed..and no team is going to let you talk to their people during the season either

This tells the whole story beautifully........honestly at this point though, I blv I would go ahead and relieve both DQ and TD.  Let anyone who’s willing coach out string.   Heck Matt R can handle his own offense and D isn’t being coached effectively anyway so they can let anyone call the D.   Maybe draw a few lucky fans out of hat and let them each call a play......no worse than the ostrich race gimmick at old Fulton county the Braves ran back in the day.

So is this an argument for or against?

Because it's looking like they didn't get the right guy.

Smitty only had 2 losing seasons and unless there is a miracle Quinn is going to only have 2 winning seasons.

When Art finally pulls the trigger, he should have a couple goons drive up to FB in a huge black sedan, tell Quinn “boss wants to see you”, and toss him in the back.  He needs to start earning that Godfather nickname

Subjective. They got the guy they wanted. Keeping Smitty didn't prevent or hinder their HC search. That's my point.

True but Smitty was also still in the hunt for the division in the last game of the season.... and Blank told him before that game he was going to be fired.

So you could he was fired before the end of the season. 

Can Quinn replicate Smitty's 5-1 division record in his last season?  I doubt it.  Not with this record setting defense.
