DQ's dumbest move is still not putting a lid on Shanahan during SB51.   Wouldn't care who left the team or how bad the Falcons currently are if they had won that SB.

The dumbest decision is Beasley....or hiring Koetter

Was it letting LaFleur walk? This video is painful to watch. Could have been our 2017 offense

I saw that video this morning and thought the same but I try to avoid hindsight bias.  Who knows if LaFleur was ready to take on the challenge in 2017.  He was a QB coach for us.  Going to LA (OC in name) and Tenn were probably very helpful in his development and so I say that he probably needed those stops and may have struggled like Sark out of the gate without those two years of seasoning.

Most people will point to Beasley and not cutting him in the off-season or picking up the 5th year option 2 years ago. Honestly, whilst those moves haven't worked out, I can't blame TD or DQ for those, as we didn't really have an alternative option at the time. In hindsight we would have traded him after his breakout season, but no one would have guessed he'd regress to where he is now.

I think the worst moves are the decisions DQ has made at OC following Shanahan's departure and ultimately I think that is what will cost him his job. Letting Matt LaFleur, Mike McDaniel, Mike LaFleur and others leave and then bringing in Sark to run someone else's offense didn't make sense at the time. This off-season he's gone completely the opposite direction and gone for an experienced play caller and that hasn't worked either. Our lack of continuity on offense is what has held us back and knowing we had in house candidates that have gone on to have success elsewhere is really a kick in the teeth.

Picking up the Beasley option.  It poisoned the clubhouse.   Those guys know who shows up at OTAs and who takes plays off.  Guys who kill themselves trying to hold onto their jobs have to look at him and think ‘what the ****’

Had Beasley not had that one good year he would be long gone.  The success of 2016 was pregnant with consequences .  . .
