NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Houston Texans Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Evan and I are back to talk about the Falcons terrible loss on the road to the Houston Texans. At 1-4, the questions surrounding Dan Quinn’s tenure are heating up dramatically. We discuss this and more on the podcast. Topics included:

  • The putrid play of the defense and why blaming players like Isaiah Oliver, Desmond Trufant and others may be looking past the bigger issue: Dan Quinn
  • The record setting afternoon put up by Deshaun Watson and Will Fuller against this Quinn led defensive unit
  • The inability of the Falcons to hit or sack Watson, despite their terrible NFL ranks in protecting him
  • Why the 32 points scored by the Falcons offense should not take Dirk Koetter off the hot-seat either
  • The fact that the offense can’t simultaneously target Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones well in the same game
  • Whether or not Steve Sarkisian is a better OC than Koetter
