This season hasn’t been what the Falcons envisioned, and at some stage in their midseason struggles, questions arose about coach Dan Quinn’s future with the workforce.
Quarterback Matt Ryan and his teammates are working their hardest to abet their coach’s job.
“He has the dignity of the locker room and the fellows play hard for Dan,” Ryan acknowledged at some stage in an interview on NFL NOW. “There is now not any quiz about it. All of us handle the total lot that he does for us, the trend of instructing, and he’s got gigantic relationships with all of the fellows in our locker room. So we esteem him. We are taking half in hard and doing the total lot we can for him.”
Quinn owns a 41-37 story as head coach of the Falcons, a job he’s held since the 2015 season. That span of time additionally contains an 11-5 season in which the Falcons sprinted to the NFC Championship sooner than infamously blowing a 28-3 lead in Mountainous Bowl LI. Nevertheless the closing two seasons enjoy left loads to desire, with the Falcons losing no much less than nine games in each of the two campaigns.
At 5-9, the Falcons are flirting with their worst trace below Quinn with two games left to play. They’re going to hope to take out to examine closing season’s 7-9 carry out with the hope of saving Quinn’s job.
Their play within the closing two weeks gives that ambition some hope, as the Falcons put up 40 parts in a dominant in over their lowly convention rival Panthers, and they drummed up enough courage to pressure down the discipline within the relaxation two minutes Sunday to rating a sizable upset take over the San Francisco 49ers.
They’re going to hope to defend up this scoot in converse to fabricate sure they’ll derive one other shot with Quinn on the controls. A house sport against Jacksonville gives a favorable matchup, but the defensive-minded Quinn will need his unit to face big in Week 17 against a Tampa Bay workforce that has been explosive in newest weeks, despite losing a key receiver in each of its closing two games.
“I’ve been on this profession prolonged enough to know that it is a production primarily based mostly enterprise,” Ryan acknowledged. “I am hoping it is far attributable to we esteem him and he’s a huge soccer coach.”
Stop tuned for the outcomes.
