ATLANTA — Crash and burn. That's about the only way to describe where the Falcons are at this point in the season.

After Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and looking overall at the Falcons' 1-7 record, team owner Arthur Blank said he was "extraordinarily disappointed in the season," at a news conference Sunday afternoon, while deftly sidestepping questions about the future of head coach Dan Quinn.

With the team hitting the bye week next weekend, Blank said would evaluate things over the next couple of weeks -- which certainly does not bode well for Dan Quinn's future prospects, if one is looking at the tea leaves on the wall.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium was not constructed to have empty seats during Falcons games - which means there's got to be a winning product on the field.

Here's what writers around the nation are saying:

Take a week, get some extra sleep - after all, time falls back next weekend.

Arthur Blank is going to take some time himself and give some serious thought as to what the team needs going forward.

The trade deadline is on Tuesday afternoon. There may be some interesting moves the team may make ahead of that point, given that they really have nothing to lose for the rest of this season.

And while Dan Quinn's chair is safe today -- I can't speak for tomorrow or the next day.

I'll catch you back here in a couple of weeks.
