  1. If Ryan is unable to win a SB before he retired then I think he will be 2nd on this list behind Marino. Ryan career stats, especially playoff will show that he is better than pretty much everyone on this list with the exception of Marino(regular season only). Heck Ryan 100+ QB Rating in the playoff and a near perfect SB QB rating should put him #1 on this unfortunate list.
  2. Welcome to Atlanta coach Smith. Don't know too much about you, but everyone deserves initial support and be judged upon their body of works here.
  3. Man this thread is even worse than the I”ll Ryan straight up for Jake Locker thread.
  4. Falcons seems to make history left and right under Quinn, not the good kind though.
  5. I believe that Mr. Blank is a savvy business man. That is why it puzzled me that he brought back Quinn. I do not like Quinn as a HC, and I would imagine that most Falcons do not like him as a HC either. The team under Quinn has been extremely frustrating to watch, and in just two games so far the season is about to be ruined again. This losing culture with Quinn needs to be change or there won’t be interest in this team.
  6. Hopefully we are 1 step closer to having a different HC. That is the lone positive I took from this week.
  7. Lost interest in this team already after 2 games. Well done Quinn. You did the improbable sir.
  8. What? Where did you hear that? Here is the reported number of test. No one will be saying US has 83 mil of COVID cases.
  9. Did you ever go to the hospital for a flu? I never have and don't know anyone personally who did.
  10. That was due to contamination from a specific lab in NJ. The company(OPK) who are performing these test figured out the issue and rectified it. It's a very good thing it happened now as oppose during actual season.
  11. I think Football Outsiders had Falcons OL 10th run block and 23rd pass block in 2016 so I think it just a matter of who opinion you value more. https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/nfl/offensive-line/2016
  12. Some of you keep forgetting that Ryan has won a MVP and is on pace to be one of the top statistical QB in NFL history and HOF. Rich man version of Jake Delhomme? Game manager? Hard to take you guys seriously as being impartial when you make comments like that.
  13. It could be that. It could also be some people don't always follow logic or have a different logic than other. Me personally I like Ryan. He did many great things for the organization, and while he has not been able to help bring a SB to the organization, I don't blame him for that. I think most people who are reasonable would be happy with someone who did a lot of great things even if he or she did not do everything you wanted.
  14. Unlike tennis or golf wins and losses in football are not controlled by individual. For the life of me I cannot understand why people cannot grasp that.
  15. Did you look at Dalton stats and compare it to Ryan before you make that comment, especially playoff stats? Here let me do it for you. Dalton 4 GS, 88/158 55.7% comp, 218.3 YPG, 1 TD, 6 int, 57.8 QB Rating. Ryan 10 GS, 237/351 67.5% comp, 267.2 YPG, 20 TD, 7 Int, 100.8 QB Rating Not only that as falconidae pointed out Ryan has been a part of multiple playoff wins and a SB appearance for this organization when Dalton has none for the Bengals. Ryan is not more or less like Dalton in term of production or contribution. It's a shame that even some Falcons fans can't see that let alone outsiders.
  16. There is also something to be say for rewarding hard work and dedication. As long as Ryan doesn't hang on too long when his skills have diminished to the point of detrimental to the team success(i.e. we are losing because of him) then I think he has earned the right to retire as a Falcons. Remember, before Ryan(and to some extent TD) this organization never had a back to back winning season. Ryan brought stability to the QB position along with winning and expectation where not making playoff every year is a major disappointment. Some year the expectation is even SB or disappointment. Not only that Ryan has also been a model player and teammate for the organization. Ryan never caused any embarrassment or controversy for the organization. Yes NFL can be a cruel business sometime, but sometimes you can also gain a lot more by rewarding some players who had done a lot for your organization as oppose to throwing everyone out when they no longer have any value to you. If nothing else it's just to give the perception that you are actually care about the players when the majority of the time you do not.
  17. So one minute the organization doesn't want him then the next it's unless something drastic happen he isn't going anywhere. That's like two end of the spectrum.
  18. Not sure if you quoted me by mistake or not but I wasn't concern about Ryan and his TO. Ryan can play perfectly in the first half of the season and the Falcons might win an extra game or two. Falcons didn't go 1-7 in the first half or 6-2 in the second half because of Ryan, and anyone who is being objective can see that. Ryan plays for the most part was pretty consistent throughout the year. If anything I thought he played slightly better during the 1-7 than 6-2.
  19. Ryan didn’t lead the league in int during the 1st half of the season. Crab legs Winston would never let anyone throws more int than he does. Besides, Ryan threw 3 picks against the Eagles and that was the only game the Falcons won so don’t talk about how Ryan int prevented them from winning. Most of Ryan int during that period was either miscommunication with receivers or late in game where he was taking chances because they were running out of time.
  20. This team was talented enough to go 6-2 and beat two 13-3 teams at their place. Oh yeah Ryan was the QB that leads them too. If it wasn’t for coaching or lack there of they would have made the playoff and had as good of a chance as any team to make it to the SB. Ryan contract, just like most other top tier QB in the game, has yet to hinder the Falcons from putting together a playoff caliber team. Only TD and DQ misjudgment of talents and injuries could do that.
  21. There isn't one that I can think of. Any past winning SB team has had at least a decent running game. Teams that rank near 30th in rushing usually don't make the playoff let alone winning the SB. On the other hand I can think of at least 1 team(Trent Dilfer and the Ravens) that might have had a bottom of the league passing and still won the SB.
  22. Chief didn’t win the SB due to QB plays. They won because they had a good team and their D kept them in the game. Put Maholmes performance onto the Falcons team and they would lose by double digits instead of won the SB. Ryan played almost perfect and Falcons still lost the SB so no chance they would have won with Maholmes plays in the SB.
  23. I think even some of Dan Reeves heavy TE drafts were better than that. That right there is ugly.
  24. The Falcons must have OC that hurts OL performance ever since they drafted Ryan then because it has been years since they had a good OL. Even under KS the line wasn't that good. BTW PFF had Falcons OL coming into the season ranked #22 and #24 by the end of the season so again only on this board do people actually think Falcons had a good OL with what they had coming into the season, 3 new starters, 2 of which were rookies.
  25. He either hasn't learned his lesson or that he can't admit he made a mistake. Neither one shines a good light on him.
