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.

    • Zach Hicks with Stampede Blue has a nice article about Trey Lance today.    https://www.stampedeblue.com/2020/12/5/22154397/college-scouting-notebook-full-analysis-of-ndsu-qb-trey-lance?utm_campaign=stampedeblue&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter   It's hard to project where Lance will go but he is certainly one to watch. Right now it seems like Lance could be a top 15 pick so it would take a trade up to make happen. (which I think the Colts would do if they really believe in the player)
    • He's been injured twice in 3 years while in Indy, both very unrelated. Both in the same year, one a neck strain (missed a game) and then the broken ankle. Let's not act like he's been on IR for 3 years straight, or constantly getting dinged up.   And can't afford? He's on a rookie deal making about 1.3/year, and under contract through 2021.... 
    • He makes $1.6m next year with a little under 500k dead cap. So at least another year.
    • Yup. Jax and Houston give up sacks (both top 10 in sacks allowed), so he could get 4 more with a little luck in those 3 games.  LVR and Pitt don't give up many.
    • Turay is an injury-prone player...plain and simple. I don't know how long the Colts can afford to keep him around.
