    But I just wish Julio had the same kind of heart that Russell Gage and Ridley has... I'm sorry guys but I've never been a huge Julio fan... Always hurt, never makes a game-winning play, and I love his   "oh I'm hurt that's why I didn't make that play" ... I hate to say this and I know you guys are going to be mad but I'm ready for him to go too

    robertap got a reaction from aer2033 in Joe Montana & Matt Ryan   
    Are you serious?  How often has Ryan had a run game or a defense to help him?  Julio Jones, by himself, is not a great supporting cast.
    What did Montana have?  Jerry Rice, Ronnie Lott, Fred Dean, and Charles Haley.  He also had guys who are close, like Roger Craig, Dwight Clark, and Tom Rathman.  #1 Defense once, #2 defense three times, #3 defense three times,  and a top 10 defense 9 times out of 11 years playing for the 49ers.
    How many hall of fame players has Ryan had on his team?  Tony G for the back third of his career.  Alex Mack for the back 3rd of his career.  Roddy White, Julio Jones.  Anyone on defense?  Maybe Grady Jarrett.  Where has our defense ranked while Ryan has been here?  LOL.  What about our run game?  We've had a few years with a decent run game, but just as many with a cellar dweller run game.  That's not, "great supporting cast."
    Ryan has achieved some very impressive things, despite having very little help to speak of.  Our fanbase craps on him at every turn.  It's disgusting.  We don't deserve Matt Ryan.

    I know so many people who just outright ignore this.  Dude is one of the best, all time, and because we can't seem to send out an NFL caliber defense, or have any semblance of a consistent run game, "Ryan is second tier."  "Ryan can't win in the clutch. "  It's mind-numbingly frustrating.

    3rd.  Behind Mahomes and possibly Wilson.  Frankly, I think that Ryan is better than Wilson, but popular consensus is that Wilson does more with less, and that Ryan has a ton of help.  I can't argue with that, but Matt has consistently put up better numbers than Wilson, so...
    I'm also accounting for the fact that Matt had an off year last year.  I suspect that he will not repeat that this year.

    Mods,
    Maybe we should check the bad apples who derail topics in to negativity and not silence the posters who just want to support the TEAM and all the work they are doing on and off the field, ehh? 
    The entire Atlanta Falcons organization have made it known where they stand. I for one am dang proud of this franchise, and am thankful for everyone who is listening and helping. Nothing controversial or political about that sentiment. 
    If this bother's you then you should look in the mirror, and that's for everyone.
    Now let us praise our hometown team for their efforts, because THEY deserve it!
    Be good to one another, awaiting my warning.

    robertap reacted to Tandy in Saw This Post From Tandy Tonight. Wow   
    If I had judged my husband without getting to know him and decided we wouldn’t stand a chance because we came from different worlds just because he was darker than me, I would never have met the best person I ever knew in my life or had the  most amazing children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, not to mention The most wonderful extended family any one person could ever have.  
    I thank God every day for making me without that odd pre-judging nature.   I don’t know why he did and I don’t care, because it has given me a life filled with love and wonder and support.    I never regretted a day of my life since then and I truly wonder how many people can say that.  
    I have always wondered how many wonderful people have failed to find connections that bring meaning and happiness into their life because they were afraid of, judgmental without reason, or filled with an unjust bias against others who look different than they?   The thought makes me sadder than angry.    
     
    But, when they strike out at someone or slight them or treat them unfairly or cause harm, it makes me angrier than sad.   No one has the right to bully.    I always taught my kids and grandkids to speak up when they see or hear injustice and to remember - the shame and loss is on them, not  you.
