While Atlanta United And Hawks Soar, Falcons Coach On The Hot Seat

Oct 29, 2019

The Atlanta Falcons have had a rough first half to the season. After a loss of 27 to 20 against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, speculation has been flying around whether Falcons owner Arthur Blank will fire coach Dan Quinn during the bye week.

Georgia sports fans are used to dashed hopes, but not all franchises based in Atlanta are suffering like the Falcons. The Atlanta Hawks have had a strong start to their season, and Atlanta United is looking hopeful for a chance to take the MLS Cup for the second year in a row.
