Atlanta Falcons

Complacency is the root of the downfall of Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff: Part I

With Atlanta’s defense coming off a terrific performance against Sean McVay’s surging offense, all the pieces were aligning for Quinn to win his fourth playoff game as a head coach.

An offense with playmakers like Devonta Freeman , Tevin Coleman , Mohamed Sanu , Taylor Gabriel , and Austin Hooper should surely produce with the season on the line.

A full season of underwhelming play from a talent-rich offense that ended up costing them an opportunity at making it back to the Super Bowl didn’t change his judgment.

From De’Vondre Campbell admitting the Falcons took the Browns lightly in a humiliating defeat to being blown out by a Green Bay team that had just fired Mike McCarthy, Quinn started to receive a considerable amount of heat for these unacceptable performances.

While they couldn’t recreate what he did in Atlanta, the coaching staff could take fragments of how he maximized Matt Ryan ’s capabilities and turned the offense into a complete juggernaut.

Instead of entrusting an assistant on the staff or hiring someone connected to his mentor Pete Carroll, Quinn decided to take over defensive play calling duties himself.
