Falcons fire Dan Quinn


Recommended Posts

To be fair, their entire secondary has been DECIMATED.  Doesn't mean they were top-notch anyway, but some of those guys were signed off the street to play.

 

I highly doubt this firing is all due to this season.  They were likely looking for a reason and 0-5 will do it.  But I think this has been brewing since the Superbowl meltdown vs. the Pats IMHO.

To quote Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon, "Who's f'ing next?!" I think it'll be Adam Gase. If Joe Judge wasn't in his 1st year with the Giants (and Barkley hadn't gone down) then he'd be in real trouble too but if they're 0-10 at the bye, he may be sacked anyway.

Im not sure why Adam Gase is a head coach.  He road the coattails of Peyton Manning and hasn’t done anything since.  Did the Jaguars get a new coach this offseason?   I can see Matt Patricia for the Lions getting canned soon. Anthony Lynn and Vic Fangio are also good candidates to be fired.

Doug Marrone has been the Jaguars coach since the end of the 2016 season. He served as interim coach for the final 2 games after Gus Bradley was fired, and he got the permanent gig that January. The Jags made it to the playoffs for the 1st time in a decade in his 1st year as their coach, advancing to the AFC Championship game before seeming to fall off a cliff, winning only 12 games over 2 &1/2 seasons since then, to include this one.

 

Lynn & Fangio are both candidates for the chopping block, although I don't think Anthony will be fired during the season but barring a postseason run by the Chargers, he's probably one of the 1st casualties on "Black Monday". GM Tom Telesco may also be in danger, although he has put alot of talented players on the roster, he's had back-to-back flops in his Head Coaching hires in Mike McCoy & then Lynn.

Fangio keeps his job because of his QB situation, which was brought upon by Elway. Unless Elway is fired, Fangio stays.

 

Lynn, if Telesco is gone, he is gone too. Doug Marrone has been hamstrung by both David Caldwell, the GM, and Tom Coughlin. I think he can do better without Caldwell in the picture.

Joe Judge seemed like a rushed hire, like Freddie Kitchens last year for the Browns.

I don't know, Elway canned Vance Joseph after only 2 years, and he wasn't exactly dealt a decent hand as far as starting quarterbacks go: in his 1st year he had Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler & Paxton Lynch all start games for the Broncos, and Case Keenum for his final season at the helm. Of those four, 2 are currently backups on other NFL teams, 1 is a free agent & the other is completely out of football.

 

I don't know if Telesco gets canned, he may or may not but in general, he's done a good job as a GM in stocking the roster with talent, and being able to extend a few of his better acquisitions. If he's made any mistakes, it's been his 2 head coaching hires, but he may get 1 more kick at the can in that regard. I could easily see Lynn going and Telesco staying, but I can't imagine the opposite scenario in which they keep Lynn & dump Telesco so you're right, if Telesco goes, then Lynn is definitely gone too.

Man, Justin Herbert looked good yesterday. That was a game the Chargers should have won in regulation. In 21 games, Anthony Lynn has lost 13 games of 1 score or less, that might bring him a lot of scrutiny.

Herbert is the real deal 

He's played well enough to win all 4 games that he's started, especially last night: 4 TD passes & no picks, and he got the Chargers within range to kick a game winning 50 yard fied goal (Badgley's max is 59 yards) but it hit the upright and bounced out.

Chargers should've won last night. Vinatieri did that too us last year as well. FG kickers are critical.

    • When Frank has had a good quarterback, he wins and makes the playoffs.   The two years he didn’t make the playoffs were the two Luck years where things went to heck at the last minute.   And one of those two years we looked like a playoff team until JB got hurt.  From there, things went downhill.   This year, we never lost two games in a row.  When we lost a game, we won the next week.  A very good sign of a well coached team.   We had one bad loss, week one in a season where Covid wiped out the entire off-season and all pre-season games.   Ballard speaks glowingly of Frank.   He knows how hard it is to find a good coach.   I’m not sure why you think we’re not a well coach team, but for some strange reason you do. 
    • So you don’t really agree with most?
    • Whether I've heard of them or not is irrelevant. What's relevant is that our coaches can lead our team to a SB win. You can bash me because of my lack of knowledge all you want. The real question is, do you trust Ballard to hire coaches over 31 other teams? Do you trust Frank Reich's word that these guys are good? You are being positive and trustworthy just for the sake of it too. I don't trust anyone for us until they prove they can do their job at the highest level, in the NFL and on the Indianapolis Colts.
    • Joe Tiller coached future HOFer Drew Brees at Purdue.  He's the father of "basketball on grass."  One of the most brilliant offensive coaches of his generation with an outstanding coaching tree.    I say this with no disrespect, but the fact that you haven't heard of someone is pretty meaningless.    Your responses regarding the listing of several coaching legends, together with your reactions toward the several up-and-coming NFL coaches that have been named in this thread, has established you're pretty much only familiar with a few household names that virtually every casual NFL fan is familiar with.   If that was the criterion by which all coaching decisions and hires were made, no coach would ever move up the ranks and have the chance to become successful.    Sirianni was pretty much a nobody before the Colts hired him.  He's still only 39 years old.  Now he's the HC of the Eagles.  Eberflus had never coordinated a defense before he got to Indy.  I'm guessing you had no idea who Gannon was until he was hired away.    In sum, there's no reason to be overly negative about things just for the sake of being overly negative.  It may be more rewarding to expand your horizons and learn more about the game and how many great coaches permeate every level of it.  Some coaches that you perceive as "bad" because of their tenure with a certain team go on to do great things in a different environment.  Same can be said for coaches that you've never heard of (which is seemingly a pretty big list).  That's the nature of the business. 
    • I've never heard of any of these guys besides Levy and Kush, so I have no idea if they are even good or not.
