The Atlanta Falcons product is unacceptable.
This is the first time since the dumpster fire in 2007, the Atlanta Falcons have started this season 0-3. Back then, they had a legit excuse, however, for this team to start the season like this is inexcusable.
What’s wrong with the Atlanta Falcons?
Everything is wrong with the Atlanta Falcons. From the front office to the coaching staff all the way down to the players. The Falcons have issues at every level. You can’t have these kinda issues if you expect to be a top tier team in this league.
What they didn’t address is the cornerback position. While they did sign Darqueze Dennard, there were better options out there for this front office. Now they’re struggling to stop anyone and it’s been that way for a while.
The Atlanta Falcons have become complacent with the status quo.
Dan Quinn has been the head coach since 2015. While he did lead this team to the Super Bowl in 2016, what did he do to try and get back? Absolutely nothing. An even better question is this, what has he done to change things up? Absolutely nothing.
The Atlanta Falcons have had numerous coordinators on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball and yet it seems like all these teams look and play the same. Quinn is the only constant in this all and because of the complacency that had plagued this team, his job is in jeopardy.
Everyone thinks that this offense has the talent to be consistently elite. Matt Ryan is at quarterback. Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley are the best receiving duo on the NFL when healthy. The offense can put up points at any given moment.
The defense has always found a way to spoil those moments. When the defense does decide to show up, the offense for some reason just goes stagnant out of nowhere. It’s hard to recall the last time the Atlanta Falcons put together a complete game from both sides. Some of that falls on coaching but there are also moments when these players don’t execute when they need to.
If you need an example, look no further than the Cowboys game when the Falcons special teams have a brain fart and forgot how to do their job.
Falcon fans are irate because this team is 0-3. There is way too much talent on this team for their record to be what it is. No one will be surprised if the Falcons are at the bottom of the power rankings once they come out after week three.
This isn’t a situation where the finger should be pointed at one person. Just like win teams win, when a team loses, it’s a team effort. Every level in this franchise has played a part in this abysmal start. It’s not a good feeling when and except for this kind of thing to happen but that’s currently the case. Dan Quinn should be done and TD should be given his walking papers as well.
