With the start of the offseason program set to start April 15, Falcons coach Dan Quinn is starting to feel re-energized.
He’s moving on from last season, which saw the Falcons go from Super Bowl contenders to 7-9 draft-spot chasers after eight players who started the season opener missed 80 games because of injury.
Quinn is watching the injury reports closely, meeting with his revamped staff and devising plans that he hopes will lead to a quick turnaround in 2019.
With the organized team activities set to start on May 20, the meetings have included five things they are focusing on for the 2019 season.
The coaches are having twice-a-week game-management meetings. They are also plotting new ways to use Vic Beasley and Takk McKinley, securing the interior of the passing pocket for quarterback Matt Ryan, tweaking the rushing attack and retooling the secondary.
