Owner Arthur Blank Explain why the decision to fire Quinn and Dimitrov was made:
“Decisions like this are very difficult, but the previous two seasons and the start of this year have been especially difficult for me because of the deep love, admiration and respect that my family and I have for Dan and Thomas and their families. For many years, they have represented me, our team, our organization, and Atlanta with class, commitment and all the passion you want in team leaders. But as everyone knows, this is a successful business and I owe it to our fans to provide the best product we can do on the field. We have put all possible resources into winning and we will continue to do so, but the last results do not meet our standards or what we promised our fans. Therefore, we will install training. New employees will lead the Atlanta Falcons in good time.
“In 2019 we had a chance to show that the momentum can continue and build on, but this clearly hasn’t happened. All in all, the past three seasons have not fulfilled my commitment to Atlanta and our fans everywhere. I want them all to know that my commitment to winning has not wavered. I will continue to provide all possible resources to this end. “

His time was highlighted by six trips to the NFL Qualifiers and three NFC South Championships.
Quarterback Ryan died He was asked about the team’s game and its potential impact on Quinn’s future as head coach after Sunday’s loss:
“I think we as players should play better. His message was fine. We played it wasn’t like that. That’s what we should focus on. I know I have to play better than I definitely did today and give our team better,” Ryan said, Via a video by Kelly Price from Fox Sports, Regarding the idea that Atlanta could transfer from their head coach.
“I think Dan has been nothing but a great coach since he was here. We haven’t done well enough as a team and as players. It’s hard work but we all love and respect what Dan is doing for this football team. We have to find a way as players to be better.”
Atlanta’s inability to close the games was an issue due to the Super Bowl losing favor New England Patriots After the match opened with a 28-3 advantage. Problems persisted, however, Jared Dupin of CBS Sports has also written. The Falcons took on a 10-29 lead Cowboys in Dallas And 26-10 leads up Chicago Bears Before losing both games this season.
