I seriously doubt that AS hires anyone from outside. I just don’t believe that we will change the scheme that they have taught for two seasons and bring in someone entirely new with a new scheme. 

Half these guys won't even be here or in their 2nd year.

I'm not saying the Falcons should hire Lovie, but under Pees they have had bottom 10 defenses both years. Lovie comes from the same coaching tree as Dan Quinn and Raheem Morris. Morris, frankly, got better results in 2020. The Falcons have a lot of players acquired for the 4-3 and they haven't really acquired any player of any significance for Pees system. 

how are they in the same tree when lovie runs mainly cover 2 and DQ runs mainly cover 3?

but they both run 2 different schemes

Every coach keeps learning new things and adapts to personnel, but all these coaches I'm talking about go back to the original fundamentals of Monte Kiffin and that's a fact. Trees have a lot of different branches and aren't all the same on every branch. But Dean Pees is a completely separate tree.

Why do we want to recycle coaches he have not had much success.  

Time for new blood.... I love the idea of Tracy Rocker D Line Coach for the Eagles. 

His defensive lines has always been top notch.  He has a player type that fits his process.

I can imagine the Falcons with a dominant D Line
