KRUNKuno Posted December 27, 2019 Share Posted December 27, 2019 Arthur Blank...I have never bad mouthed this gentlemen. He’s a standup guy and what he’s done outside of sports for this city is truly the work of a man that believes there’s more to this life than oneself. HOWEVER... With this decision Blank feels like he’s the smartest man in the room, and that we, the paying fans, are misinformed. 1. Blank talks about having continuity. Continuity is all well and good when it isn’t inconsistent continuity. Dan Quinn has shown he is a coach of big highs and huge lows. 6-2 to 2-6, 28-3, 1-7 to 7-9 or whatever, last year when the excuse was our team was injured yet you see a coach like Doug Pederson or Mike Tomlin make lemon meringue pie out of the lemons they’ve been dealt. People point to Sean Payton, but guess what, SEAN PAYTON WON A SUPER BOWL! Had Quinn not blown 28-3 then he could have all of the extra chances without any backlash. Instead we got the worst sports collapse ever documented, and excuses to follow. What about Tennessee’s consistency with Jeff Fisher? Dallas’s consistency with Jason Garrett? Consistency is only as good as the results that come from it. 2. Blank talks about turning the season around after being 1-7...well how did we get to 1-7 in the first place? Are we not holding this regime accountable for their flaws, or are we just glossing over glaring deficiencies to keep about a good ol’ boy status quo? I continue to say that this is the reason the players even love Quinn so much...because they know they will not be held accountable for their mistakes. They get claps and cheers when they come back to the sideline no matter what happens. They do not have to play at a high level consistently because their coach doesn’t coach at a high level consistently. He doesn’t demand greatness, but rather finds joy in being a motivational guy that builds men to go out into the world and be great men. 3. This shifting of the chain of command...once again... now TD and Quinn report to good ol Rich McKay. Is this supposed to be why we are not consistent? Why is it so difficult for Blank to let these retreads go? Why is it always a change in title rather than just letting these men go? This again is Blank feeling as if he’s the smartest man in the room. He genuinely believes he has the right group of guys and continues to try to sell us on these guys being good for this team. The SOLE REASON we win games is because of two people...Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. I’d love to see how great of a coach Quinn would be without Matt. Could he lead them to a super bowl like Pederson? Could he continue to be in playoff talk like Tomlin? Matt and Julio are the guys that were winning games before Quinn and can win them in spite and of Quinn. You tell me about that time you said “man, Dan Quinn really won that game for us”. The success of this team doesn’t ride on Dan Quinn, and as we’ve seen with a coach like Boy Wonder, if you get a guy in here that will PUSH the players as he pushed and demanded excellence from this offense then high results will come of it. The purpose of a coach isn’t to be a cheerleader, but to enhance a team. I see no way that Quinn enhances this team, and Blank is trying to sell us on Quinn being something more than what he is. He thinks we’re fools, but when his stadium is at 30% capacity again maybe...just maybe the light will turn on in his billionaire brain. Not a rant, just facts.
