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.

    • I think Frank and the OC knew his strengths and weaknesses and didn't put in too many plays that they knew Rivers would have a hard time executing.  They did let him take a deep(ish) shot sometimes.  I'm not sure they were overly conservative at all.
    • Great sumary, 100% accurate.
    • Rodgers only has himself to blame for not running that ball in on 3rd down. He had a clear lane to the EZ.   The decision to go for it should have been mostly irrelevant because 4th down wouldn’t have happened if he did run. And if he doesn’t get there...it’s going to be 4th and short...which makes the case for going for it even stronger.   Rodgers is a great QB...but he made a critical mistake.
    • You seem bitter after a tough loss.   New Orleans is likely to lose Brees (if not a retirement in the coming weeks, likely after next year).  That leaves Tampa Bay, a team you guys could have very well beaten yesterday (dominated time of possession, won the turnover battle, etc... that TD at the end of the half and a few other plays really changed that game, though if you looked at that stat sheet aside from the score, you'd probably have thought GB won).  The rest of the NFC South isn't too big of a threat in the next couple years.  The NFC East is a dumpster fire.  The NFC North is a division you should win for a few more years if Rodgers is your QB.  The NFC West seems like the toughest overall division in the NFC, but they underperformed this year - the Seahawks seem to be on the decline, I don't think Goff is good enough to get the Rams over the hump on an annual basis, not really sure what to think of the 9ers and the Cardinals have a good young coach and QB.    No reason why Rodgers can't at least get back into the SB in the coming years in GB.  The other top QBs in that conference (Brees and Brady) are on the wrong side of 40.  Wilson, Murray and a couple other QBs seem to be a level below those two and Rodgers.  Matt Ryan's getting old, Dak Prescott's coming off a bad injury, and after those 2 I see a pretty big decline in NFC QBs (especially if Stafford leaves the conference).     The AFC on the other hand had 4 QBs who were 26 or younger in the divisional round.  It looks like the Chiefs and Bills with Mahomes and Allen are going to be very tough for a long time coming.  Herbert looks to be the real deal with the Chargers as does Burrow with Bengals, the Ravens and Titans have ridiculous running games and solid Ds and likely will be threats for years to come.  Really, aside from having a hard time believing a few teams (i.e., NYJ, HOU, DEN) will be any good in the foreseeable future (I'd throw Jax in there, but who knows if they get Trevor).  Otherwise, I can see perennial powerhouse PITT declining as Roethlisberger ages/retires.     Overall, I think Rodgers has a much better shot of getting to the SB if he stayed in Green Bay than if he came to the AFC.  The AFC, at least for the next few years, seems like a much stronger conference than the NFC overall and has multiple up-and-coming QBs, whereas several of the top dogs in the NFC have QBs who will likely be retiring before A-Rod does, and definitely before A-Rod is 'washed up'.
    • Brady's reputation as the best playoff QB in the history of the NFL is pretty much already set in stone.  There are ootner QB who can compete in terms of regular season performance -- Manning, Rodgers, Mahomes-- but in terms of doing what is necessary to get to the playoffs and then perform at a high level once there, the only guy who comes close at the moment is #18 and even Mr Manning is a clear second place finisher.
