Dan Quinn talks around job security question

Whether you’re actually on a seat that is increasing in temperature or not, it’s never a good sign when an NFL coach is asked about his job security.

Because even if he’s not about to get fired, it at least means things aren’t going well at that moment.

Via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Falcons coach Dan Quinn was asked Wednesday about his status.

“I honestly work on how our team improves,” Quinn replied. “I spend most of my time thinking that way. How can we do it better? How can we tweak this? How can we work that? How do we feature the guys in the best way?

“Any time that I would spend away from that, would be 100 percent not productive for me. I’ve always coached to win. That’s what I end up doing. That’s where I focus all of my time and attention.”

The Falcons are 1-3 this season, after last year’s disappointing 7-9 finish.

But Quinn’s record is 37-31 overall, so he may still have some degree of goodwill banked up with owner Arthur Blank — whose opinion is the only one that matters.

  1. He’ll end up on Tampa’s staff somehow. The Falcons and Bucs just trade coaches back and forth forever in the world’s longest game of mediocrity poker.

  2. The reason for drifting backwards since the SB can be put in 3 words: losing Kyle Shanahan.

  3. “The reason for drifting backwards since the SB can be put in 3 words: losing Kyle Shanahan.”

    And if Kyle Shanahan had ran the ball when they were ahead they’d have won a Super Bowl. What Kyle gaveth, Kyle also took away with monumentally dumb playcalling.

  4. Kyle Shanahan worrying about his next job instead of his actual job destroyed this team. Terrible injury luck since then hasn’t helped.
