    Default We need to talk about Dan Quinn

    This story is six years old, but might have some relevance this offseason if/when Fangio is dismissed.

    Quinn had hoped for package deal with Paton
    One of the hottest coaching candidates in the current hiring cycle is Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. One of his top choices for partnership when it comes to the construction of a roster is off the market.

    According to a league source, Quinn had a strong interest in working with Vikings assistant G.M. George Paton. But Paton decided not to interview for the two current G.M. positions, with the Jets and the Bears. Instead, Paton will remain in Minnesota.

    It remains to be seen whether Quinn ultimately receives an offer in the current cycle. He has been or will be interviewed by the Jets, Bears, Falcons, 49ers, and Bills.

    Personally I'm not big on bringing in another old school defensive coach -- and wasn't impressed with Quinn's tenure in Atlanta. But it sounds like their connection runs fairly deep if Quinn was trying to sell them as a package deal... and he's gonna be on the short list of available HCs with experience this off season.

    I'd be more than happy to give Quinn another go. He's some bad second-half play-calling by Shanahan away from winning a Super Bowl with Atlanta.

    Offense is the dominant side of the ball. He's also closer to being old than young.

    Terrible choice, unless he's somehow bringing Russell Wilson with him.
    When we do find that guy, weve got to have the continuity on the offensive side to where we can train him and develop him and get him there. This is our fourth offense in probably three or four years. Quarterbacks need to be developed. You dont find one ready-made. We got to have a solid system in place for when we do go after whatever guy it may be, a young guy or a trade or whatnot.

    Yeah but he's a 4 - 3 guy and the roster is not built for that alignment at all at this point. And bad play calling or not there was good play-calling and good play by one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the league to get them in the position to win

    quinn inherited matt ryan and julio jones, and his only dominant offenses came with kyle as OC, nevermind one bad call in a critical spot. . . the one constant his whole time there was the inability to put together a championship level defense. . .


    tell me again why he'd even be considered for another HC position. . .

    The same reason Vic will.

    I was thinking the same thing but MOs been pretty convincing that Quinn is no longer running a Cover-3, or even a true 4-3.

    Not that MO was keen on Quinn.

    I don't hate the idea of Quinn as a HC, but we desperately need to hire an Offensive mind the next time around.

    Draft a QB, get an edge rusher, Find a RT and we can get back to doing things right

    Also F Cousins and any other scrub QB in Denver ever again, and please make Hackett our HC as well, Thanks!

    Wade never should have been allowed to leave the building. IMO Elway didn't like how much credit Wade got for SB50 and his ego got hurt.

    Or, maybe you need a defensive guy who will hire a young, dynamic offensive mind to run the offense. I really, really love that Quinn has moved away from the Seahawks Legion of Boom cover 3 defense to fit with the times. It’s the type of coach I’d love to see try to adapt new concepts and hire innovators. Mike McCarthy needs to get praised for his work of changing both his philosophy and scheme, as well. Obviously, not on that list but part of this particular topic.

    You need guys willing to be flexible, not try to be specific on which side of the ball they coach.
    *The statements above are my opinions, unless they are links, because then they are links, which wouldn't make them my opinions, and I suppose stats aren't necessarily opinion, but they are certainly presented to support an opinion. Proceed accordingly.
