For every championship team, there is a front office that makes the decisions that can make or break a team.  When it comes to General Managers, few can match the success of the Braves’ John Schuerholz who put together the roster for that championship.

As fans celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Atlanta’s only major sporting championship, John joins “Cellini & Dimino” to remember the Word Champion ’95 Braves, discuss in-depth the personnel moves made the championship possible, and other deals that ultimately brought the trophy home to Atlanta.

680 The Fan Exclusive: ATL Head Coach Dan Quinn on “Cellini & Dimino”

It’s all about the upcoming draft for Head Coach Dan Quinn and the Falcons! What are the positions they plan to address, the draft targets on the board, and even what the Falcons are doing during the COVID-19 lockdown with virtual evaluations and player meetings.

So we had falcons coach Dan Quinn on the program this morning.  While he was his usual upbeat self, I also think he was more honest and transparent than he usually is.
The front office can talk about who has the final say and collaboration all they want, but starting with Neal, these were guys hand picked by Quinn, who said “it’s up to them” as to wether some of these rookies will need more time to develop.

Quinn also said that he has no fear of playing younger guys, and agreed with the assessment that new OLB Vic Beasley will be the key to the teams pass rush.

Year two is when we’re supposed to see marked growth.  Will it happen with the Falcons?  With the leagues toughest schedule, it’s going to be a challenge.  A challenge Quinn won’t shy away from.   That being said, if the challenge isn’t met, Quinn goes from s beautiful mind to JAC (not “jacked”).  Just another coach…on the hot seat.
