FLOWERY BRANCH — Falcons coach Dan Quinn spoke to the media on Monday.

He opened with a discussion of the team’s poor play on third downs against Minnesota. The Falcons were 1 of 10 on third downs.

Quinn cited Devonta Freeman’s 25-yard run that was called back. The holding by Alex Mack turned and third-and-8 into a third-and-12. He pointed out his frustrations with a third-and-12, -13 and -17.

He also announced that cornerback Desmond Trufant has been cleared from the concussion protocol and was set to practice today.

Here are some tweets from Quinn’s presser:

The falcons suck..plain and simple!!  They are still under coached and over maned

most every game!!  Why does none of the local prospects ever make it to the falcons?

This has got to be the most screwed up organization in football..Too many chiefs and not enough quality players..I know one thing..I would give 10 M.R. for 1 K.K..


How about putting Beasley back as a full time pass rusher instead of out in coverage sometimes. He needs to do more to help the team win. Alex Mack is a season veteran this is his second penalty in the last few games. Takk will end up being the Falcons best pass rusher. Matt Ryan needs to be on point to have a chance to beat the Saints. Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman don't have to take a backseat to the Saints dual running back tandem. The offense can't afford to sputter against the Saints they will need a minimum of thirty points. Sarkisian needs to leave no stone unturned. The defense should be able to sack Drew Brees and slow that run game. Getting first downs will be crucial. The Falcons are pinned on the ropes now come out fighting.
