Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Wednesday, Oct. 16

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Arizona Cardinals Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Hump Day, Falcoholics! The weekend is officially in sight, which means we’re only days away from another soul-crushing Falcons defeat.

Did you know that 4 out of 5 dentists recommend our links? It’s true!

More on the Falcons’ fourth consecutive loss

Our staff reacted to Sunday’s loss. (Spoiler alert: we didn’t like it.) Snap counts can tell us a lot about a team. The snap counts from Sunday’s game speak volumes. Specifically they tell us that Dan Quinn flatly refuses to use some of the defensive depth on defense, which is, in a word, infuriating.

This week’s edition of “hat tips and head scratchers” highlights the best and worst from Sunday’s loss. This week’s post-game podcast poses some interesting questions: how can the defense be this bad? When will the Dan Quinn era come to a merciful end?

Looking ahead

Are you an embattled quarterback, looking to bounce back from a bad game or establish yourself in the National Football League? Then we have an opponent for you! If you act quickly, you too can capitalize on the ineptitude of Dan Quinn’s defense!

Suddenly Isaiah Oliver isn’t looking like the best option to start across from Desmond Trufant. As a result, Kendall Sheffield may see an increase in playing time in the weeks ahead.

Because Dan Quinn flatly refuses to change up his defensive scheme, personnel changes might be the best available option as the Falcons look to right the ship. In other words, free Deadrin Senat and Sharrod Neasman, already!

Roster moves

Looking forward to this weekend’s game? The Rams just traded for Jalen Ramsey, and he may suit up against the Falcons. In a similarly impactful roster move, the Falcons parted ways with Matt Wile yesterday, giving him an injury settlement.
