Quinn’s words not only establish where the Atlanta Falcons are as a team, but also what direction the team needs to go.
A major portion of Quinn’s address was the continuation of his “all about the ball” mantra. NFL teams that win the turnover battle usually win the game, and Quinn showed his high expectations for the Falcons in that area of the game, even going as far to set the lofty goal of having the best turnover margin in the league.
Also, a slogan for the Falcons last season was “In Brotherhood,” rallying the support of a wide base of fans and displaying the camaraderie of the team. Quinn highlighted that every player is responsible for success whenever they’re on the field, and that the team can only succeed when performing as a cohesive unit.
Hopefully, this video not only gets you excited for the rest of training camp and the upcoming NFL season, but shows you what the now third-year Falcons head coach has brought to the team. Complacency is nowhere to be found. This team, this coaching staff, and this front office is hungry for the pinnacle of success in their sport.
However, the Falcons are not just running on raw emotion either, they are focused on playing more disciplined and correcting costly mistakes. Not only will they run faster and hit harder, they’ll make smart decisions as well. This is the perfect recipe for a team that will keep the rest of the league up all night.
Watch out NFL, the Dirty Birds are on the rise. A coach with both heart and knowledge like Quinn is bound for success.
