4. The Falcons will not hesitate to play young guys. Some teams may not do that in the hopes that if they don't show up on much game tape they will be easier to pass through waivers so that the Falcons might be able to sneak them back onto the practice squad later. "The young players, we are going to play them. We're not going to hide them," Quinn said. "Whether they're here on our team, our practice squad ... or on another roster, if that exposure allowed their career to extend on another 53 or another practice squad, our staff would be pleased that we made a difference for that player.
