This type of rhetoric often signals the end is near. Note that there is not a strong endorsement of DQ as the definitive long term HC. If defense stinks up again against a struggling Goff and rams’ offense I could see DQ gone

Yep. He says it’s not acceptable and the wind has changed from evaluating end of season to every week.

Wow senility has set in on Blank.

He is a very smart owner who wants to win now. If you don’t, he will send them packing.

If we lose, which I am 99% sure we will, Quinn and TD are gone. They have built a Jenga of a team, pull one piece out and the whole thing crumbles.

Even has 54 pieces so we'll include the HC

Jenga is a game of physical skill created by British board game designer and author Leslie Scott, and currently marketed by Hasbro. Players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of 54 blocks. Each block removed is then placed on top of the tower, creating a progressively taller and more unstable structure.

Careful wording by Blank. I’m wondering if it’s DK or MM who’s interim, I’m not convinced that the hiring of all these ex HCs wasn’t done with interim in mind, but it could have been to send message to DQ that we don’t need you

I don’t see TD gone. He drafted and signed according to HC’s scheme. That’s a fact

Indeed, He never directly said Fired, just implied from evaluating week to week.i doubt if Blank hired all these ex coaches, TD and DQ have said multiple times it’s their choice not AB or Ryan. 
I hope DQ got the message, the season isn’t over at least mathematically.

Why keep him? If you're rebuilding don't use the same construction company that built you the leaning tower of Pisa and you overpaid for.

Agree. I Think it was a shrewd move. I know many want to tank, but literally most fans won’t go to games or watch if that’s the case.

I do, and would be sorely disappointed if his is still here.

Lose today and he's gone, hopefully TD too.

He's a fan of the team and of the City. To undermine what he has done for Atlanta is insulting. The one HUGE mistake: PSLs for the average fan. Yes we have a shiny new stadium that has a team that won a Championship in in it, but it's not the team that has been around for 54 years.

I think when he says we will see some changes in defense and things will get better, is the warning shot across the bow. If we lose bad. I think he's gone. 

Raheem is interim and Sutton becomes DC

Not sure if it really implies anything, but Blank addresses TD indirectly here 

 

“We'll just continue to look at what we see developing and continue to support the coach and support the general manager and continue to ask them to do everything they can to put some wins up on the scoreboard.“

Could be. Blank rarely says or does anything unintentional or scripted for a purpose after his mess up with Vick and Petrino.

The best time to get rid of Quinn is during the bye, unless we win and it's decisive, DQ is history. I just hope he takes his clock manager, red flag manager, refere coaches, and  TD with him.

Let's say you're an above average celloist for the Atlanta Symphony, you have wonderful brass, strings, drum and horn sections. A few of the musicians are out of tune, knowingly so, but are tired of playing for a conducter that is always showing up drunk (metaphorically) babbling about brotherhoods and not pissed about losing and getting you all in tune. Who do you fire?

This is always the case imo if gm and hc are going to work well together.

Men, you guys don’t give up on TD. Why would they fire TD? He has been the most successful GM and a good one. TD went after players based on the scheme and what the coaches wanted. What is this nonsenses about getting rid of TD when he is operating based on his job. TD acts according to the coaches, scouts and or a panel that comes to an agreement what to do in the draft and with FA’s and so forth.

The leaning tower of Pisa has stood for 650 years. That's a pretty good foundation.

DT's had some great picks Ryan, Ridley, Debo, Hooper and Julio stand out but take a look at the rest:

And take a look at how many are overpaid and riding the pine, gone or on IR.
