With a new regime fully installed, how will the next five years of Atlanta Falcons football play out?

Fact: Randy Johnson's helmet left him perpetually vulnerable to the two-fingered eye jab

It's been an exciting off-season. The Atlanta Falcons finally parted ways with famed game mismanager Mike Smith.     They hired Charles Xavier former Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn to replace Smith. They reorganized the front office, allowing Thomas Dimitroff and Scott Pioli to do what they do best. And while they didn't blow the fan base away in free agency, they were efficient in adding quality depth.

Many schematic changes are underway. On the defensive side of the ball, the Falcons will emphasize the point of attack and collaborative football. Meanwhile, on offense, Kyle Shanahan will implement a zone blocking scheme and emphasize balance. While Dan Quinn and his merry band of coaches want to build on past successes, the on-the-field product may have a different look in 2015.

Nobody expects Quinn to win a Super Bowl in 2015. To be fair, the personnel may not be there just yet. But given a couple years, most expect Quinn to do some damage in the post-season. Whether that concludes in a Super Bowl victory is anyone's guess.

So how do you see the next five years playing out? Will the Falcons win a Super Bowl? Will Quinn grow a mullet? Discuss!
