2. Dan Quinn taking over as Defensive Coordinator

Remember the end of 2016 when all the sudden the Falcons defense caught fire and carried us to the Super Bowl? I do and as we learned after the Super Bowl loss, Dan Quinn had taken over the calling of all defensive plays and schemes.

He made a huge difference. We miss that.

We forget that before Dan Quinn was screwing up end of game situations that he was a Super Bowl winning Defensive Coordinator. He thrives in that role. Players feed off of his emotion and he gets the best out of the guys he coaches.

Dan Quinn taking the DC reigns after letting Marquand Manuel go was the best decision that he could have made for that spot. My hope is that this locks Quinn into the game and has a trickle-down effect to his game time decision making.

Dan Quinn is the best Defensive Coordinator in the NFL.
