The Atlanta Falcons announced on Friday morning that they aren’t going to fire general manager Thomas Dimitroff and head coach Dan Quinn.  They released an interview with team owner Arthur Blank to explain the decision to keep things as they are.

The Falcons have a 5-2 record in the second half of the season after a miserable 1-7 start.  That 5-2 second half record includes road wins over two playoff bound teams, the 49ers and Saints.
