Blank Offers His Own Form of Pre-Game Motivation

After a week of detailed preparation, Head Coach Dan Quinn had his team fired up and ready to go today against the Panthers.

But, the Falcons' pre-game routine included something a little different today.

Owner and Chairman Arthur Blank offered his team some extra motivation with a special dance prior to kickoff.

"He had a little dance he was doing and everyone was pretty hyped about it," O'Brien Schofield said following Atlanta's 20-13 victory. "Honestly, when your owner is having fun and has that type of confidence, it definitely sparked a little juice before we even got out there and took the field."

Blank's new style of motivation was felt amongst the locker room, especially rookie Vic Beasley Jr., who had his best game of his young career.

"That got us motivated, I felt like it was going to be a good day, and it turned out to be a good one," Beasley said.
