Quinn has provided a work excuse note for fans 


Falcons coach Dan Quinn has asked fans to get to their seats and cheer during the game against the Saints at 8:25 p.m. Thursday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The new $1.5 million stadium hasn’t been loud since the Green Bay game. 

Here’s a blog from columnist Jeff Schultz on the matter. 

There are a few theories about the fans being in awe of all of the new restaurants and party bars.

Quinn wants the fans to take the party to the stands and get loud. 

He’s gone as far as to write the fans an “excuse note” for work on Friday.
