5 quotes from Falcons HC Arthur Smith's Monday press conference




 

The Atlanta Falcons have a bye in Week 14, and it couldn't come at a better time as the team is on a two-game losing streak and dealing with a quarterback controversy.

On Sunday, the Falcons suffered a 19-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers to fall to 5-8 on the season. With the team's playoff chances dwindling, it sounds as if head coach Arthur Smith and his staff are at least seriously considering making a change at quarterback.

At Smith's Monday press conference, he was peppered with questions about the QB situation. Here are five notable quotes from the Falcons head coach.
