Last quote by Dan Quinn

There's a lot of really good things that Steve does, and I don't want to lose sight of how good a football coach this guy is. And I think all of us, when you're going through a time where you're not producing from a points standpoint that you like, there's a lot of factors involved. That, to me, is what when I visited with him on plays and concepts and things whether we like or don't like, not all of them are plays.feedback

Dan Quinn quotes

Aug 21 2017

The more we do that, the clearer I usually am mentally. I get pissed off about stuff. And that's when I confront it. If somebody is doing something wrong that could hurt the team, you will feel it. Significantly. You won't be a part of what we do.feedback

Aug 18 2017

I think he's probably a little stronger than I thought,'. Not saying that I thought was a weakness, but the strength that he's able to set an edge with, I knew that part of his game was good. But until you see it on film, compared to seeing it live, it's a big difference.feedback

Aug 13 2017

He had some heat stuff that he dealt with from the first practice and again today. I didn't get a chance to go in and see him yet, but I'll find out.feedback

Aug 07 2017

They're not quite the same issues, but they are red flags,'. Clearly decision-making is something that still needs to be addressed.feedback

Aug 07 2017

We have three rules to the program, and the first one is protect the team. That did not take place in Jalen Collins' situation, and now there's consequences for that,''. Both Jalen and I talked to the team, and the lesson wasn't just for Jalen. We've got such a strong group of teammates, the lesson really is if you're having an issue or problem, that you make sure that you tell one of your guys.feedback

Aug 07 2017

Past that, last week some of you asked about (Collins) regarding a depth chart, and I'm always going to protect the player. I think for those of you who know me, that's not going to change. At that time, I knew there was an issue with the league. I didn't know if it was going to be resolved to his side or away. And I didn't know if that would take place in July, August, or September. So (general manager) Thomas (Dimitroff) and myself, we made the decision to move him (down the depth chart) until we had further clarity on that, and then we could make the best decision. So in that essence, we were protecting the team.feedback

Jul 28 2017

I didn't have to, but I definitely did. The reason I'm saying that one is he's not somebody that got sideways, so it wasn't like I had to. But for most of the guys who are in that contract time to have discussions with, I definitely talk through. And I want to have open line of communication with them.feedback

Jul 28 2017

If there's something that's jamming them up or something that I can assist with, that's my responsibility too, because their connection with the team and the staff and the coaches, that's an important one. So I want to make sure we're always keeping our lines clear.feedback

Jun 18 2017

The man that Justin has turned out to be, I would imagine that was a lot of him growing up with a good model with his father. (Sam Hardy) is looking down, and he ought to be very proud of the man that Justin has become. Probably everybody knew for a good while he was going to be a good ball player. More importantly, he's such a well-respected teammate around here. ... One of the highest compliments that I can give a guy is that he's a great teammate; I can count on him. As a teammate if I've got a problem, go see Hardy.feedback

Jun 13 2017

He is (where he needs to be), from his weight today. We're pleased with where Dontari's at weight-wise, workout-wise. We've got some strong men, and he's one of them.feedback

Jun 08 2017

You've heard me say how important the culture of our team is, and they embody that. Not only do they compete at the same position, but they unconditionally support one another.feedback

Jun 08 2017

I think there was no clearer example ... I think it was a third-down conversion that Tevin made on our sideline, and the first person to meet him was Free. He was so excited that his guy made the play that was a big third-down conversion. I think that embodied kind of all the things that I love about this team. Like most good shooters, they want it all the time. But they know that's not what's best for our team. We're really fortunate that they support each other greatly.feedback

Apr 03 2017

I'll leave that between he and I. But the steps are in place to help with his recovery. Fortunately with him, part of his openness to talk about it helps a lot, too. His way to help someone else by having it be transparent is important to him.feedback

Apr 03 2017

When we had the opportunity to hire Steve, that was one of the real questions that we wanted to talk about: his recovery and how we can do the very best job of supporting him. That was a big topic that he and I discussed prior to coming on board. I wanted to make sure he was healthy and doing great. And he was. I wanted to find out the exact steps that are necessary for him and how I can best support him, which I do 100 percent.feedback

Apr 01 2017

I heard all the plays going in. Like any other time of the year, if I had said, Hey man, let's change that and go somewhere else', we would. There were times I did this year, so it's not like I haven't before. I'll always speak up when I think it's the right thing to do for our team.feedback

Mar 30 2017

Yeah, 100 percent. I think you have to acknowledge. You have to own the moments that went bad. But you also have to own the ones that went well, too. That's what I intend to do.feedback

Mar 30 2017

It hurts. The first little bit after the game way more counseling than coaching. We had tears but no finger-pointing because of how tight our team is. And then, man, you're like: You go back and you battle for it again. You go through that process and then you've got to turn. This is 2017. And that's really what's coming down the pike for us in two weeks for the team.feedback

Mar 30 2017

The term we use is called reset. We do that after every game. Our mind-set to go about it is: How do we reset for our offseason? The way we approach it is we try to make the big things small. We're not thinking about training camp. We're not thinking about the season. Our focus honestly is on the next nine weeks of our offseason program. How do we battle to get our team right, get ready, get your skills right? … All I want them to see is how good they can get and can their connection to one another get stronger?feedback

Mar 30 2017

For me, the grieving wasn't for me. It was for Arthur and the players and the team. And the reason I say that is when Arthur interviewed me two years ago, I said I hoped to see that connection between the city and the team. That happened in Atlanta. Those were the things that so lit me up. The connection that I hoped would happen between the players and the city and the fans that could light it up, that happened. So to not get the final piece at this time and reward them – the fan base, Arthur and the players – that's where my disappointment comes. It lies with them.feedback

Mar 30 2017

At the same time, that's what I went back and looked at: I cannot tell you how much fun it was coaching in January in the Georgia Dome. It was loud. The crowd was into it. It was so cool. To see that connection happen, when you have the disappointment at the end, you're not over it. But you're past it. But it's okay to let it fuel you about where you can go. That's kind of where I'm at.feedback

Mar 29 2017

Grieving is not for me. It's for (Falcons owner) Arthur Blank and the players and the team. I hope you see the connection between the city and the team, those things are a lot more important to me; to not get that final piece it takes to reward the fan base, that's where my disappointment is. There are good things to learn from other sports. If there's something I can gain from that, pass along and pay it forward, I am glad to do that.feedback

Mar 02 2017

Those who cover our team on a regular basis know we talk about boxing quite a bit. We got our asses knocked down on the canvas. You get back up and you go fight again. That's kind of what this offseason is about for us.feedback

Mar 02 2017

No. 1, you have to own it. There are consequences good and bad when you make plays and when you don't. Owning those decisions, can we nail execution on this play better? When the opportunity comes to making a sack or creating a turnover, owning those scenarios.feedback

Mar 01 2017

Yes, I am past it, but I'm not over it. And I never will be.feedback

Feb 07 2017

I knew how good Kyle is. I wanted to make sure I had contingency plans in place. We went through the process, obviously, to check and make sure everything would align with our organization, in terms of cultures and values. He's done a fantastic job. There were zero hesitations, zero limitations. This is something I approached Nick about first, before I reached out to Sark. He said, Yeah, I understand what you have to do for your organization. In typical Nick fashion, he nailed it like a complete pro. I'm fortunate we have that good of a relationship.feedback

Feb 07 2017

There is never going to be a way to get over the loss. The guy battled as hard as they can. What (this loss) does have is some of that toughness that you have to go through. It does make you stronger.feedback

Feb 06 2017

I think for sure we ran out of gas some.feedback

Feb 06 2017

No doubt that was a tough one for us. That's a hard one in the locker room. They executed terrifically. That was one of the things that we don't talk about with them a lot, is the way they can execute. When they got hot, it was hard for us to deal with. I am proud of the fight that these guys have. The brotherhood that this group has built, it's as strong as I've seen.feedback

Feb 06 2017

We knew it was going to come down to the end for sure, and just at the end for them to have the scores back-to-back, that was the difference for sure.feedback

Feb 04 2017

Their offence and Tom Brady in particular for years has just functioned at a really high level. They execute better than just about everybody at their routes. They've had years and years of reps at that, but all that said, it still comes down to in between these white lines Sunday afternoon, us against them, battling for it all, and that's where our focus is.feedback

Feb 04 2017

That's Matt. I am so pumped for him, the way he has worked. It is not surprising the offense feels so good about the plan and has practiced so clean.feedback

Jan 21 2017

There have been a number of times (against the Packers) where it has totally come right down to the finish. These kinds of games usually do.feedback

Jan 21 2017

Both teams, from when we played before, are a better version of what they were at that time. It's going to be a heck of game.feedback

Jan 16 2017

We're totally bummed for A.C.. For a guy who really busted his butt to come back from his knee as quickly as he did, it was for me an emotional time.feedback

Jan 16 2017

The biggest challenge we have is making sure the practice reps are the right ones for him and Matt so they get that clear connection on the routes they need. We've spent a lot of time on that to make sure as they go through the week, they both feel comfortable with the work they have.feedback

Jan 16 2017

It's as much fun as you can possibly imagine when you get to do it in front of your own fans. This dome is closing and we get to be a part of the last game here. Talk about what a cool thing that is.feedback

Jan 16 2017

We do have good versatility because of Upshaw. He's able to play defensive end and defensive tackle, so we'll rely on him some more to play outside at defensive end. Past that, there won't be a lot of change other than using guys in new, versatile ways.feedback

Jan 16 2017

We'll limit him throughout the week, and then as the week progresses, we'll get him a little more at the end. That's the plan from last week. That will be the plan moving forward for us. He's excited to play.feedback

Jan 15 2017

The fans lit it up for us. We appreciate it, and now we'll find out if we get another one.feedback

Jan 15 2017

We were prepared for it, and he still made some terrific plays.feedback

Jan 15 2017

No concern at the moment. We'll have more information on that later. It'll be sore. But he's certainly somebody who's able to battle through it. So I anticipate he'll be ready to rock next week.feedback

Jan 14 2017

I likely would've done it other times, but especially with my respect for him.feedback

Jan 14 2017

This city and our fans, their connection, you certainly feel it so it's awesome for them. We are going to have a playoff game at home and it's because of them. We are so pumped to do it.feedback

Jan 14 2017

We knew that this was going to be a hard battle and it for sure was. Those guys are as tough as they come.feedback

Jan 06 2017

There are so many things that don't show up on the stat sheet. How many people he's affected on our team. He's a fantastic teammate. That's one of the highest praises you can give to a ballplayer.feedback

Jan 04 2017

We get a lot guys involved. Our whole team has a real clear understanding of our identity.feedback

Jan 04 2017

If I had a vote for MVP, it would certainly be Matt. He's had a fantastic year in a lot of ways.feedback

Dec 04 2016

But I reminded the team that it never comes down to one play.feedback

Nov 07 2016

I just wanted a guy I knew I could work with. I don't want to be the overseer of it all. I want somebody I can work with from the personnel side. Honestly, we haven't had decisions where it was tenuous or tough.feedback

Nov 07 2016

We have a common vision when it comes to constructing this roster, and I believe we have built a solid foundation over the last two years. He is one of the best talent evaluators I have ever been around, and I'm fired up for us to continue this process together.feedback

Nov 04 2016

The amount of guys that get involved in the game is a big topic for us.feedback

Nov 04 2016

He had a real locked-in look about him. Matt's really been on point with where to go with the ball.feedback

Oct 23 2016

Go be aggressive and get that half yard that we needed and when we didn't get it that was (the loss).feedback

Sep 27 2016
