Falcons fire HC Dan Quinn, GM Dimitroff; Raheem Morris to be interim HC


Recommended Posts

About dang time, lets be real what has quinn done for this organization? He is a defensive mind HC who had Shanahan come in and work on that offense in which carried them to a superbowl. They have quality guys on offense and that was the only thing keeping Quinn afloat. They need to utilize that offense by bringing in a creative offensive minded HC that can get the best out of ryan, julio, ridley and co. Quinn had a respectable Defense the year of the superbowl but outside of that each year his defense was bottom half in almost every statistic. This new change will put a twist to 2021 season with guys like Brees and Brady on their last year of their career, Panthers still building up a roster with new coaching staff. Will be fun to watch once they find someone new.

Easy to have a defense show up on the stat sheet when you have an offense as efficient and potent as the one Shanny developed there that year.

The new regime will want their QBotF if they're in a position to get him.

Ehh you are stuck with him until 2023 you draft someone in the 2021 that puts him in year 4 of his rookie deal to take over unless they are willing to cut ties and eat 26 mil before 2023 season. I dont necessarily think they need to go in to this years draft to get a qb unless they land the #1 pick to get Lawrence. That is a different story but if they some how pull off a couple of wins this year and do not get that option then you have to just build around what you have and evaluate the entire team after a year or 2 then grab your future qb. The average HC spot has been 3 years, if they cant get things going by year 3 then they are likely out and a new regime steps in, obviously some organizations can wait longer but even so you are basically killing your chance of landing a stud player in the top 10 for a qb that wont see the field until 2023 and possibly after your tenure as GM/HC. So it is important to build to win now more so then 4-5 years down the road. Then again Packers did it and Rodger's is having an MVP type year.

Considering a rookie contract, you can swallow 26M after the 2021 season and make it a post June 1st cut to spread it out if they wanted to.

They might not be in a position to get a big talent at qb in the future. Do it while you can.

You think that team is turning it around in the near future with their cap situation/talent issue?

Fair, not sure I see that but too each their own.

I'd be very surprised if they take a QB (besides Lawrence for obvious reasons) at this point. Ryan, with the right team around him, can still take them places and with that contract...
