Still shocked they let him coach another game after losing to the Bears

That's...yeah, just about the most reasonable take on that. He MAY not have been able to prevent that loss, but he certainly did nothing to stave it off.

Good riddance for Atlanta.

We may set a record for the amount of coaches fired during a season. Gase can't be long for his job either.

According to Schefter, Falcons also fired Dimitroff. I'm not an expert on the Falcons, but it was my understanding that the talent is absolutely there. What did the GM do to be fired?

He didn't have a lot of success building in the trenches. Dimitroff is solid though, he'll get another opportunity.

As bad as this ended, I wish nothing but the best to both of them. Absolutely should have brought Atlanta their first championship. Sad ending.

I remember watching the Mic'd up Superbowl comeback by the Patriots and the players followed the lead of their coaches. 

Quinn was sheepish and panicky  and unsure and his encouragement rang hollow

Patriots coaches spoke with confidence

Downhill ever since. Falcons were a product of Shanahan's offense

did he hire Quinn and/or advocate keeping him, perhaps?

13 years to get things going on the right track. Eventually, the train derailed and his lack of drafting solid depth killed is career here.

Wow. It’s almost like hiring the hot coordinator isn’t the slam dunk hire it always appears to be.

And Dimitroff got the axe as well. It’s almost like taking someone who came from New Englnsd doesn’t work out as spectacularly as it appears either. 

If only there was a precedent for either of those things.
