When this process began Qadree Ollison Atlanta Falcons Jersey , would hire 2012-2014 offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter as their replacement for Steve Sarkisian. Yet that’s exactly what they’ve done, as we learned today that Koetter is the newest Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator.The team confirmed the news on Tuesday. Dan Quinn’s response won’t surprise you. “We are fired up to have Dirk join our staff as our offensive coordinator,” Quinn said via the team’s media relations staff. “His experience and familiarity with our division will also pay dividends as we move forward.”Why Koetter? The Falcons will have plenty to say, I’m certain, but familiarity with Matt Ryan has to be a leading factor whether the team will admit it or not. Ryan likes, respects and had some genuine success with Koetter, albeit mostly only for a single season, and Koetter can slide right in with this quarterback and this personnel group without a major transition for anyone. That had to be attractive for Dan Quinn, who just cleaned out all his coordinators and is not looking for any sort of rebuild or teardown whatsoever. Koetter’s involvement, however faint Youth Qadree Ollison Jersey , with a tremendously productive passing game in Tampa Bay also didn’t hurt his cause. He’s a solid hire with a long track record in the NFL. The case against Koetter is pretty straightforward, as well. He’s never been the play caller for an elite offense in his career, coming closest with a majestic rushing attack in 2007 in Jacksonville and in 2012 with a Falcons team that went all the way to the Conference Championship Game. Other than that, he’s mostly presided over solid-but-unspectacular units, many with severe personnel limitations. It was deeply concerning to see him take over play calling from Todd Monken this season, however briefly, and watch a productive Tampa Bay passing attack go into the toilet. Koetter’s track record simply has not been good enough to feel wonderful about this hire, with the acknowledgement that he’s never had such an elite personnel grouping before, not with Michael Turner declining so sharply back in 2012.We’ll have to hope this hire surprises us, then Black Desmond Trufant Jersey , and that Koetter will prove more a visionary than a steward after Steve Sarkisian milquetoastedly called this Falcons offense into a top 10 finish in 2018. If he can elevate this team’s offense even further as they look to rebound in 2019, Koetter will be a very popular man in Atlanta. Indiana Hoosiers football is known for one thing: falling agonizingly short against more talented teams. IU’s seemingly weekly flailing against ranked opponents has helped earn the team the internet nickname “CHAOS TEAM.”It’s been going for five years now, and Indiana fans were writing about how sick they were of it three years ago. The trend began in 2014.The Hoosiers led No. 6 Ohio State by six until 17 minutes remained, then lost by 15,and led No. 8 Michigan State in the second quarter, then lost 56-17.And it really got rolling in 2015.They lost by a touchdown to No. 1 Ohio State,lost by eight to No. 10 Iowa,were within two of No. 7 Michigan State in the fourth quarter, before losing by 26,and led by a touchdown to No. 15 Michigan in double overtime Desmond Trufant Jersey 2019 , just for good measure.Also in 2015, IU's first bowl game in a decade ended with a controversial missed field goal.2016 was ruthless, as anticipated.They lost by five to No. 10 Nebraska,led No. 12 Penn State 31-28 in the fourth quarter before losing by 14,and led No. 4 Michigan in the third quarter before losing.Also in 2016, Indiana's second bowl game in a decade-plus came down to a kick. Utah made it.2017 was brutal, as is standard.They led No. 2 Ohio State 21-20 in the third and lost by 28, took No. 17 Michigan to overtime but lost, 27-20,and led No. 9 Wisconsin by 10 in the second before losing by 28.2018 has loosely held to the same script.They pulled to within 7 of No. 24 Michigan State in the fourth Black Damontae Kazee Jersey , then gave up a 75-yard run almost immediately and lost by 14,trailed No. 3 Ohio State by a TD at the half before losing by 23,recovered an onside kick with a chance to beat No. 18 Penn State, but came about 50 yards short,and led No. 4 Michigan at the half in Ann Arbor and was within a TD late, but lost by 11.We’re sorry, Indiana fans.This whole thing already seems impossible, and somehow, it keeps going.
