All in all, it’s hard not to be excited about the Falcons new coaching staff.

The players seem to have bought into Dan Quinn’s philosophy, and you can almost feel the energy coming off of Quinn.

Fans had become accustomed to Mike Smith’s monotone press conferences and coach-speak answers, but Quinn brings a level of enthusiasm that seems to have been missing from Flowery Branch in recent years.

Whether or not Quinn’s philosophy will make a difference on the football field has yet to be determined, but he’s certainly a lot more fun to listen to than Mike Smith.

Let’s all hope that the 2015 Falcons are a lot more fun to watch on the field as well.

What do you think about the press conference? Do you have faith that Dan Quinn will bring the Falcons meaningful improvements in his first year on the job?

Here is a link to the full press conference, in case you’d like to hear Quinn’s voice (and experience Matt Ryan’s facial hair) for yourself.
