For the first time in 13 seasons, the Atlanta Falcons fall to 0-3.
Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn must be fired before the Flowery Branch employees show up to work tomorrow morning.
Under no circumstances should Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank allow this charade to continue. Blank has made a lot of threats over the last 18 months and it is time he finally follows through with some of it.
No one cares that this team was missing several starters that just means that general manager Thomas Dimitroff has to go too. Every team has injuries and Dimitroff’s ability to sign roster depth has been and will continue to be trash.
Dan Quinn has done nothing over the last 83 games to warrant retaining a job at this point. Teams from across the league are laughing at the Falcons while simultaneously scratching their heads as to why this team is 0-3.
It all comes down to Atlanta Falcons coaching and not just the head coach.
Dan Quinn has made a lot of really bad coaching hires and those hires have turned this franchise into what you see today. Raheem Morris’ defense gave up three touchdowns in the fourth quarter and made a lot of really boneheaded mistakes along the way.
Dirk Koetter is the worst offensive coordinator in the NFL.
They looked good early as they took shots and did a great job of mixing the run and the pass. However, in the second half, he had the Atlanta Falcons passing when they should be running and running when they should be throwing. The offenses inability to sustain a drive in the fourth quarter in order to put this game away.
After opening the season with three straight losses, a change has to be made now. There is no tomorrow and while a coaching change may not change the outlook this year, the message from Dan Quinn is stale and there is no more sense of urgency that a team with this much talent should have.
