Vic Beasley waited out final ref ruling in Saints game in the Falcons tunnel We knew Takkarist McKinley was not playing in Sunday’s Saints Falcons matchup. It was a concern for the team with Drew Brees heading to town. Without pressure Youth Damontae Kazee Jersey , the high-powered Saints offense can easily stack up yards and points. On Sunday, that was over 500 yards of offense and 43 points. We are still trying to figure out why Vic Beasley hasn’t done much this season. He had a down 2017, and started off 2018 with some unimpressive play. It was only days ago we wondered aloud if his 2016 was an outlier, or if he’s regressed.Beasley got his first sack of the season against the Saints. It wasn’t enough, but it was definitely a step in the right direction. However, the bigger problem may be what he did in the fourth quarter. Alvin Kamara jumped toward the goal line while being tackled, and the play was first ruled a touchdown. Kamara was actually just short of the goal line Stitched Giorgio Tavecchio Jersey , but during the review, one member of the defense was headed to the locker room. I’m not sure exactly what to make of it, but it’s another bad sign from the struggling defensive end. It gives the impression that Beasley is more motivated to get home rather than to pull off the win. It’s not the place to be when the defense is on the field. The Saints, obviously, came back to the field and easily scored a touchdown.This is just another piece of info in the mystery that is Beasley. Many will use this to evidence that Beasley isn’t much of a competitor. His failure to develop any additional pass rush moves and to disappear for long stretches is problematic. So is heading to the tunnel. It may bring into question if the Falcons pull Beasley’s fifth-year option and draft his replacement. Either way, he hasn’t been playing like a top-10 draft pick. With the Falcons firing Keith Armstrong, Steve Sarkisian and Marquand Manuel in one fell swoop Youth Giorgio Tavecchio Jersey , a small footnote caught the eye of many people: head coach Dan Quinn would act as the defensive coordinator for the team in 2019. This news was met with excitement that Quinn - once a fantastic defensive coordinator for the Seahawks - could finally take over those responsibilities again. However, the flip side of this decision is one that now presents the team with a critical decision to make.For most of last year and this year, Quinn has allowed Marquand Manuel to call the defense while he focused on the traditional responsibilities of a head coach. In that time, Falcons fans have seen Dan Quinn struggle with clock management, timeout management and game scenario management. It’s not that he’s been awful, but he’s not gotten demonstrably better and there have been some clear situations where his management in-game has possibly led directly to some losses. Now, Quinn is set to take on the play calling for the defense once again Stitched Austin Hooper Jersey , adding more responsibilities back to his plate. I love the idea of Quinn coordinating the defense, but the team absolutely must hire a game management coach for the 2019 season. Let’s be honest: the team probably could have afforded to bring one on board this year. Quinn has proven to be a very capable vision setter and is a coach players love to play for, but his glaring weakness has been game day management. The front office - and Quinn - can use his 2019 defensive coordinator responsibilities as a perfectly reasonable excuse for why they’ll bring in someone to manage the games. It’s the perfect cover. It allows them to save face while addressing a big need the team has had for a while now.This move may not happen, but it desperately needs to. It’s clear Quinn is taking a hands-on approach with what he does best. It’s time for him to take his hands off the thing he does worst.
