Falcons Lose 5th Straight, Calls For A Coaching Change Intensify

Oct 21, 2019

The Atlanta Falcons' losing streak now stands at five games after Sunday's 37-10 defeat against the L.A. Rams.

 

Quarterback Matt Ryan was injured in the fourth quarter and running back Devonte Freeman was ejected after throwing a punch at an opposing player. 

 

 

Both those incidents, combined with the final score, add up to another dreadful weekend for the Falcon’s organization.

 

Calls for Head Coach Dan Quinn to be fired intensified on social media over the weekend, from both NFL analysts and fans.

 

 

Quinn, who has led the team since 2015, signed a three-year contract extension last year. 

 

According to The Athletic, owner Arthur Blank said he still supports Quinn and isn't planning a coaching change just yet.

 

Atlanta will have another tough test on Sunday when Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks come to Mercedes Benz Stadium.
