Falcons Coach Dan Quinn Has No Problems with a ‘Players-Only’ Meeting

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said he had no issues with the team calling a players-only meeting to address the team’s four-game losing streak, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White, along with linebacker O’Brien Schofield, huddled after Sunday’s 20-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings and decided it was a necessary step. The meeting took place Monday.

“This is a really close group already,” Quinn said. “When you take that to a new spot, I think that’s when it can be productive. I think the only times I’ve seen where a situation like that wasn’t as effective, it was a third time, a fourth time, where some points that the group together didn’t get across.

“Having a [players-only] meeting has happened to lots of teams I’ve been a part of. … It’s kind of a pretty cool thing in a lot of ways because it’s like: ‘Hey, man, I’m all in for you. Whatever you need, you can count on me.’ … Knowing the group that we have, I couldn’t be more pleased that they got together; what they stand for [and] how bad they want it.”
