Dan Quinn's first press conference as a Falcon starts shortly

Dan Quinn will be at the podium shortly for his introduction as Atlanta Falcons head coach.

The Falcons are officially introducing Dan Quinn as the team's new head coach today,and you won't want to miss a second of several gentlemen talking about coaching. I'm doing a great job of selling this, aren't I?

Quinn's tenure as Falcons coach began yesterday, but here's his first opportunity to lay out his vision for this team. It's the first opportunity for us to hear from Arthur Blank and Thomas Dimitroff why they chose Quinn, though his resume sort of speaks for itself. And it's our opportunity to see someone other than Mike Smith at the podium for the first time seven years, as odd and fresh as that will feel. I'm hoping Quinn will address the defense, but given that it's an introductory press conference, keep your expectations for substance low.

Our Jeanna Thomas is there and will have a full breakdown of Quinn's remarks after the conference, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, use this as your open thread (I know, it's ridiculous to have an open thread for a press conference)
