Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn joined Dave Archer for his Coach’s show.

Quinn said the team didn’t play complimentary football on Sunday.

 “The last two games we’ve learned a formula of complimentary football and all phases connected with each other and we didn’t do that yesterday, and we need to.” Quinn said “We’ve got four days to get that right, we can’t wait to get back out there, division game against the Saints, Thanksgiving night at home, all the things you want but we have to get that part right. And there were a number of examples of that in the game and that’s certainly what we’re going to work like crazy this week to do.”

Dan talked about the offensive performance of the team.

“Was not our best performance offensively, but like most things all 11 are needed to throw it, to run it to play like we’re capable of and so sometimes one position gets highlighted.”  Quinn said “It could be a day where you threw some interceptions and two of them were on tipped balls or a receiver had some drops, not in this game but in general as a quarterback, in this case they were sacks to go. At the end of it we’re at our best with all 11, all 11 to run it, all 11 to throw it right so when the game changed I thought in the second half where now we’re behind and we got to go throw it to catch up they play it a different way, but by no means was that acceptable for us.”
