Will be an HBC somewhere soon.
IMO, best DC job in the AFC-NFC CG since Monte Kiffin.
His defense destroyed the Broncos easily.
Quinn made Manning look like a chump. After watching Seattle demolish Denver, I understand now why our D was so good in 2012.
Fixed it for you. Quinn has done an outstanding job, there's no doubt about that. But Dan has got a lot of great athletes to work with, and that certainly helps.
Seattle's D destroyed a very potent attack last night.
Anyone with the notion that Quinn was just the defensive figurehead while at Florida, certainly had that dispelled last night. Wouldn't be surprised if he gets an NFL head coaching offer in the coming weeks
While I hope that Quinn took a few things from Muschamp back to the NFL, I hope he taught Muschamp some lessons as well
I think Quinn becomes next years hot commodity.
As George says "I'm going to give you a raise"!!!! Wish he was still in G'ville!!!
The defensive game plan was EXCELLENT! Having the DEs bull rush instead of coming around the edge was not only extremely effective in getting pressure (those OTs were getting man-handled) but it also took away interior passing lanes. Couple that with having the defensive backs playing up on the line, jamming the receivers to take away timing and crossing routes was brilliant.
Denver tried to adjust in the second quarter by running quick screens to the WRs which allowed them to move the ball somewhat but it was more bend than break.....how many times this year did you see that quick bubble screen to D. Thomas go for 40+ yard TDs?
Sure, you need talented players to execute. But one hand washes the other. Talent alone doesn't win games
Seattle lets their athletes play. That's part of the luxury in starting bigger corners, in that you have the ability to disrupt the play at the line of scrimmage, throw the timing off on shorter routes, and that kind of length at the corner position really bothers receivers throughout the game. Not sure how many times you've watched Seattle play, but what you saw last night didn't really deviate from what they've done all season.
And yes, schematically the Seahawks came up with ways to pressure Manning without having to constantly blitz, one of the luxuries that comes from being able to pressure a QB with a four-man rush.
Dan Quinn is a great defensive mind. I'm not suggesting that he isn't. I'm just saying that he's got the right stuff to run what he wants to. Everybody involved in that game plan deserves a pat on the back.
Quinn was mentioned for & I believe he even interviewed for a HC position (maybe the Browns?) this year. The league is trending towards young energetic DC's as the next wave of new HC's. No doubt Quinn will be at the top of many lists.
I wish our Defense played against Louisville like Seattle's played against Denver's.
Also, think about how effective the Gator defense was in Quinn's second year, after guys like Floyd, Hunter and Easley started to turn it on. When people discuss the importance of defensive tackles, often times they are referring to the importance of stopping the run; but one thing that Floyd did as well as any tackle we've had, was generate A-gap pressure. There is NOTHING more disruptive for a QB to deal with than having the pocket collapse with pressure coming up the middle.
We saw what losing Easley meant to this defense following the UT game. Considering the amount of injuries we sustained on that side of the ball, in conjunction with how ineffective the offense was over the course of the season, there really isn't much Quinn would have done to make this a better defense than the one that finished eighth in the country.
I'm jus' sayin'.
He was already a candidate for both the Browns and Vikings who requested interviews, he just was not offered in part due to winning, as the teams wanted a coach who could be there before the Super Bowl came about.
I was very happy for his success.
I think you'll find a team next offseason willing to wait for him (unless there are still vacant positions available this year).
Who was the DC for the Louisville game?
Was ready for them to praise him all game...didn't hear his name mentioned that I remember. It's weird, in college they mention the cordinators like 20 times a game. They never seem to in the NFL
Think people in Cleveland might be having second thoughts on their HC choice. Good for Quinn, never felt he got the credit he deserved while here.
I'm sure the fans are, but after the fools in charge up there canned the last guy after 1 year they wern't getting anyone decent.
