The Atlanta Falcons are torching their coaching staff after the team’s humiliating loss against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 51.

The Falcons fired defensive coordinator Richard Smith and defensive line coach Bryan Cox on Wednesday, the Sporting News reported.

Atlanta is just burning through coaches days after the loss. The Falcons defense allowed 31 unanswered points. It looks like Dan Quinn is trying to figure out what went wrong and is blaming his defensive coaches for the faltering.

  1. Only ONE more fist down on ANY 2nd half possession and the Falcons win. Plenty of blame for this collapse to go around.
