    atlvicktim08 reacted to andrews31cain21 in The First Thing TF should have done after being named GM is to approach MR about a pay cut.   
    Now before you guys rip me hear me out....I listen to alot of Sirius XM NFL radio and they were talking about Ben Roethlisberger taking a 5million dollar paycut to help out the team this year.. Matt has made over 200 Million(Rightly Deserved) and I think if they would have approached Matt, before all the trade rumors and taking a QB in draft, and also going in interviews talking about they are listening to trades on all players, that Matt would have agreed to take a 5million or so paycut.  If they would have went to him and let him know they were dedicated to him and winning now, I dont see Matt refusing to take a small paycut..well small to QBs...lol..
    They could have told him you are our QB for at least the next 3 years..... Asked him to take a 5 million paycut this year and next year, then give him a 10million dollar raise in 2023(when the cap is suppose to really explode) basically making back the money he gave up...all guaranteed and even throw in a no trade clause to show they are dedicated to him..
    But after all the trade talks and talk of taking a QB then i can understand Matt saying ummm...no..IF they could have done this, then they wouldnt have had to restructure his contract, they could have just restructured Grady's if he didnt want to extend, then we wouldnt be really held hostage with the whole JJ thing..
    On the flip side, Matt may have approached them about a pay cut, but for future security, and they didnt want to commit....
    Anyway, just my thoughts... I just think maybe TF started talking too early with the thought they would have no problem moving JJ

    We can go 16-0 or rather 17-0, but the fact still remains that our quarterback like the rest of humanity is getting older. At the end of his current contract, (three more seasons) he will be 39 if we resign/extend him. There is not many truly effective 39 year old qbs minus a few exceptional examples. If Arthur Smith truly turns this thing around immediately, we expect to not even sniff a top 10 draft position in the foreseeable future, therefore it would be wise to get a QB now, and let him sit for two or even three years; similar to the Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers exchange.

    Honestly I’m open to trading down to the 7 to 10 range. You’re taking a risk, but the draft is all about risk. But if you trade to 7-10 range, you better not go down any further, if we’re going after a QB. And if we do that, you know Lawrence, Wilson, and Fields (not high on him anyway) are long gone. At that point, in the 7-10 pick range, we are in Lance, Mac Jones, and Kyle Trask territory. And if the Falcons brass feels that either of those QBs can be their next franchise QB, and you can get away with it at 7-10 pick and pick up some additional draft capital along the way, go for it! But I wouldn’t drop any lower than that.

    atlvicktim08 got a reaction from Jerz in 2022....   
    Okay so let me help you out. I brought up specifically age 39 years old, because that will be the age Matt Ryan will be once his current contract expires and if we resign/extend him he will be 39. I was comparing effective 39 year old QBs.
    Matt Ryan is great, but I’m sorry, he’s not on Manning, Brady, Brees, or Rodgers level. There’s no point to go back and forth on that, we will always disagree on that. To argue a year or a year or two, is inconsequential. Out of their years in the NFL  minus a year, two, three, whatever, Matt Ryan is not on Brady’s level. That’s not an argument you want to have.
    Lastly, the bolded area is not a contradiction, you don’t understand nuances.  In other words, franchise QBs in general are drafted between picks 1 to 12, in most years. We can just look over data from the past 25 years to verify where franchise QBs was drafted. That’s not debatable. So the Falcons picking at 4th is excellent for drafting a franchise QB. Whoever is drafting at 12 is in range to pick a QB, but it’s gets real iffy after that.

    So to prove your point on the risk of drafting a QB high, you choose historically the four worst franchises in regards to drafting QBs: Browns (they finally got their act together), Jets, Bears, and Washington Football. It’s a draft, their is risk with everything and everyone, that goes without saying. However over the past 25 years, minus a handful of exceptions: Brady,Brees, Russell Wilson, and Aaron Rodgers, the vast majority of franchise QBs selected were in picks 12 or higher. That’s not even subjective, this is an objective fact. Both Manning brothers, Philip Rivers, Roethlisberger, Patrick Mahomes, Desaun Watson, Josh Allen, Carson Palmer, Cam Newton, Matthew Staford, Andrew Luck, Donovan McNabb, Mike Vick, Joe Flacco, and my personal favorite Matt Ryan. This is just at the top of my head.

    But that is the root of the problem, isn’t it? No matter how well Matt Ryan performs, he is going to age out like everyone does eventually in the NFL. The last thing you want to be is like the Saints, banking on if Jamies Winston is the heir apparent, or the Colts that have a team ready for a deep playoff run but no QB to lead. It’s not a Need today, sure, but it will definitely be one soon. Again, at the most important  position in all of sports. Why not have your heir apparent on the roster now, so we’re not hoping and praying in two years from now.
