Dan Quinn refuses to let comments about 'weak' defense impact Falcons
When the report dropped that the San Francisco 49ers had reportedly waited to start Blaine Gabbert until facing the "weak" Atlanta defense, it was the definition of something for the Falcons to put on their bulletin board.
Well, head coach Dan Quinn apparently isn't on board with that, according to Andrew Hirsh of AtlantaFalcons.com.
When asked about the topic again, Quinn did have a one-liner to give about the subject, per the team's official Twitter.
Quinn says he has heard the "weak" defense assessment from SF. Says "we'll be ready to rock" with a smile. #ATLvsSF— Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcons) November 4, 2015
Quinn may not want to let something like this impact his team, but you can bet that the defense heard the rumors, and have taken note of them heading into the Week 9 matchup.
