While the Atlanta Falcons may have lost one of the most important games of 2015 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, this doesn’t mean that the players on the team feel that they are out of it. Not only the players, but coaches as well.

According to Vaughn McClure of ESPN, even Dan Quinn feels confident his team can make the postseason. When Quinn was asked about that topic, his answer was simple.

"Absolutely," Quinn told ESPN. "Absolutely."

Quinn wasn’t the only one, as William Moore was asked about the potential need to defeat the undefeated Carolina Panthers twice, and whether or not the Falcons could do it.

"Speaking for this team, hell yeah we can do it," William Moore said of sweeping the Panthers. "We’re falling short. That’s all it is. We can beat anybody, I feel like. We’ve got to show up, as a team."

Even after losing five straight, Atlanta seems like they aren’t even close to throwing in the towel on this season.
