Yeah, how do you coach your specials teams guys to not fall on a ball that is going slow on the ground when you know the Cowboys cannot touch it till 10 yards for the onside kick?

 

If this stat is not worth getting fired, I am not sure what is:

No I think Quinn needs to fire Ben Kotwica. (special teams coordinator)  It was Kotwica's job to make sure his players knew the basic rules in covering an onside kick.

So grown men playing football for years don’t know the rules? Unbelievable!

U think Quinn should stay?   I said after the super bowl  loss this team would never be the same.  They need to do a deep clean and get rid of everyone  associated with that loss. Quinn hired to improve the defencr.  How has that worked. If he cant fix the defence what is his value??

6 guys could have got that onside kick freakin 6

 

Amazing.  How can 6 guys not know the rules on onside kicks??

 Wouldn't be surprised if they were instructed "don't touch the ball".

Heck, this organization gave away a super bowl championship so what's a early season game to the cowboys?  Lol

The Falcons, like others,  have been a 2nd/3rd tier organization.  When they do replace Quinn and other coaches the new coaches will also coach incompetently.

He collects his huge check every week. If he wanted better he would have forced a trade.

Its not as easy as that.

 

If the Falcons trade him this year, they are left with a $75m dead cap hit. Even if they trade him next year, he still has a $50m dead cap.

 

1st year he could be moved and save money is 2022 he is owed $41m and still has a $25m dead cap, but would save the team $16m.

He is their Pagano. At least they have had better offensive coordinators than we had under Pagano, IMO, except for maybe Arians.

Falcons have never been the same since blowing that huge lead in the SB, a SB that had won. I feel bad for Matty Ice, he had his one chance and he and his team blew it. History will show he will just go down as another good QB but nothing special.

 

All they had to do was let the play clock rundown before plays. They were routinely snapping the ball with 10-20 on the clock

 

Having watched Manning maestro the clock all those years, I was screaming at the frigging TV. Dipwads gave the Patriots the Lombardi. Sure glad I am not a Falcons fan

Cant feel to bad for him, after all he is the one who continually snapped the ball with more than 20 seconds on play clock as they had their big lead in the 2nd half.

    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
    • Nothing against you and I like you as a poster but counting Ballard's 2017 season is a stretch. I realize he was the GM that year (1st year) but he didn't have the Coach he wanted and Luck was out for the year. We went 4-12 that year so his record is a bit skewed because of that. Others have posted the same thing about Ballard's record so you are not the only one and I just don't see how anyone can count that season legitimately. I pretty much go by 2018-this year when he hired Frank and his record would be 25-19 counting the playoffs. Is he the best GM in the league, probably not but he is good. He is responsible for drafting Nelson, Leonard, Mack, signing Houston, signing Rivers and trading for Buckner = great work there. Luck just retiring on the team and McDaniels dissing him even made his job that much harder. 
    • I am late to the party but it doesn't matter because I would've been 1-1 anyway. I had the Lions and Washington so it offsets     Here are my Sunday picks/Monday pick: Ravens 17 Steelers 24 Chargers 19 Bills 27 Titans 27 Colts 30 Panthers 20 Vikings 21 Browns 27 Jags 17 Giants 24 Bengals 10 Cards 27 Pats 23 Dolphins 99 Jets 0 (Fluke's original quote) Saints 24 Broncos 13 49ers 17 Rams 30 Chiefs 34 Bucs 24 Bears 17 Packers 27 Seahawks 31 Eagles 17
    • Yes, love the limited stuff from Harris. I really want to see more routes from him, but overall, love what he's doing. I'd love for him to be a long term answer at slot if Campbell moves to Z.    I'm up in the air on specs. I need to see him hit some long ones, as well as some additional clutch kicks. Glasgow, like I said, I just don't expect much from. Doubt he's ever a contributor on D, but if he kills it on ST, I'm happy.    A buddy of mine (a Ball State grad/fan), thinks Pinter develops into a RT, and the Colts will eventually move Smith over to LT (when AC retires), and let Pinter take RT. I don't know about all that, but I do agree Pinter might develop into more than we think.    I think Pittman will develop into a long term and consistent WR for us. I know he's just starting to emerge, but he just has the look. Good/willing blocker, good hands, etc.. He might not be the 50/50 guy I want, but I also think he might be better at in-stride catching than I thought.    JT, I think he'll be fine once he gets acclimated and use to the run blocking scheme. I don't want to diminish his talent, but most RBs should be able to be successful behind our OL, and he's better than most.    Blackmon is the most interesting to me. He's always been a hammer which I love. He's struggled though in coverage in college, and as we saw, got burnt deep a few games ago. Not sure if he's too aggressive forward, or just struggles with coverage and range. I hope it's just aggressiveness. It definitely helped him when they moved him from CB to S in college, but at the same time, Utah ran a ton of man, which we do not. Love most of what I've seen thus far. I just hope it's not a case where teams get film on him, and start testing him deep a lot. We've been fortunate to play some bad Os early that simply don't go deep a bunch. Will be interesting to follow.
