I wont beleve it till I see it. I have seen no proof or evidence Ryan can or will be elite.
Statements like this are rather absurd. With the exception of an injury in his second season, which caused a slippage in stats, Matt has consistently improved every year in TDs (more consistently rather than hugely but 29 TDs are good), in yardage, rating , ypg and ypa...the kid is an ascending player. I do not understand how fans on this board constantly badmouth a QB with almost 15k yds, an 88.1 QB rating and 95 TDs and only 46 INts in 4 short seasons (remember he missed 2 games in 09 but got us on track) and oh, btw a 43 and 21 record. Let's average those out: that's 3600 yds passing, almost 24 TDs vs 11 ints and almost 11 wins per season (vs 5 losses). And 3 playoff appearances in 4 seasons--just missing the playoffs in his second year and 4 straight winning seasons. And, let's not forget the ROY award.
What the heck more do we want? Did he choke in playoffs--yup...Did other key falcons as well--yup... Did Vick accomplish this type of consistency on such a high level? Nope. Chandler? Nope. The beloved bartowski (a number 1 overall pick like Vick)? Nope?
Seriously, folks be grateful and optimistic. And all this was done with a very inflexible OC with a very predicatable game plan. And, did i mention, that our stud rookie last year, with his 959 yds rcving and 8 Tds in only 13 games, will now have a full season of OTAs, and training camp (remember strike last year) under his belt. So, I'm kinda thinking JJ will be even more studly.
the future is bright. Nuff said, haters.
