  1. No, that is because Brees was traded out and Leftwich was injury prone. However, Brees did pretty well until everything else could get going, as did the others I mentioned. QBs take time to get fully devoloped, and having them before everything else is set up is a plan that has worked many times over. Contrary to what your OP states. Quarterbacks also fail when the missing pieces are not there. Take Joey Harrington and David Carr for example. Part of the reason they failed was because of a missing offensive line. Now that the Texans have finally started building a foundation, their team is finally improving. What about the Colts, Brees, Eli, etc. Some QBs cannot take the heat, some can. There is no reason you cannot keep them on the bench if you feel the situation will have negative effects on your QB. Peyton took some serious lumps as a rookie, but he turned out fine. It's not about how good the QB is, but more about how good his supporting cast. Peyton would have never done it without two good receivers, a great line, and good defense. Neither would have Eli. And I wonder why Brees in New Orleans isn't doing so well.

  3. Or does the rookie who has the 72 mil 34 mil bonus? One that has TONS of questions about him too. Goes back to what I originally said, had we traded to the 10th spot for a 1st and 2nd and next yrs 1st. Then we could have EASILY traded back up to the 7th spot for a 1st and 3rd and either taken him or Ellis. This is what happens when you have King Arthur controlling the draft. Exactly. King Arthurism involves paying huge amounts of money to a quarterback while leaving the rest of team depleted of money. Why don't we ever pay money to our key defensive players? Patrick Kerney anybody? DeAngelo Hall? King Arthur still has not learned from the Vick fiasco that we need good players around the QB to succeed. Vick would have succeeded if he had a line to block for him, yet, we again draft a QB without fixing the supporting cast.
  4. I care about us winning games too. But just finding a QB and not having supporting won't change much. Thanks for adding to the discussion. There is no discussion. There is only you posting your same old negative "Blank can't do anything right" crap. What is there to talk about? You have been on here forever posting this same diatribe for the last year. No one really cares what you have to say, so the best thing to say is: GO AWAY! If King Arthur could do something, wouldn't you think we would have won a Superbowl by now? Or maybe even experienced back to back winning seasons. Oh, and did we already forget who hired Bobby Petrino again? That wasn't King Arthur giving him a contract was it? It must have been someone else, I just forgot. Ever thought of the fact that I might have signed off and returned later to reply to your posts? Seems like you found the font editor pretty easily.
  5. Again, I haven't insulted you guys in any way. I happen to like the Falcons. Did Brees lead them anywhere? Did Leftwich? Only when both teams got a good defense and line did they start winning. Quarterbacks can't succeed if they don't have the right supporting cast.
  6. There's many things one can discuss about. One can discuss what he or she thinks about King Arthurism. One could also compare and contrast King Arthurism with the philosophy of other organizations. Well then you have to wonder, does King Arthur want to win games or does he just want to make a few dollars? Why do you have over 3000 posts?
  7. Falcons agreed to terms with No. 3 pick Matt Ryan. NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports it's a six-year deal worth a maximum value of $72 million. $34.75 million is guaranteed. - - - With Matt Ryan signed to a deal that makes JaMarcus Russell's deal look like pocket change, King Arthur has effectively made himself and Matt Ryan marked men. Not only is Ryan now bound to this team, but with this amount of money flowing into his bank account, he has little room for failure. Actually he has no room for failure. Any wrong step and die hard fans would cry for his head. While it's good and all to pay big money to a hopeful franchise quarterback, the difference between our franchise and those like the Bears, Ravens and any other intelligent organization that needs a quarterback is how they go about building their team. Most teams follow the idea of building a good foundation, and then finding a quarterback that could take the team over the hump and into the Superbowl. Teams like the Chargers, build the defense and lines first, and then obtain a workable quarterback. The Chargers first created a solid defense, a good run-game, and then found a quarterback to fill their need. Though Phillip Rivers isn't that great of a quarterback, the Chargers are still able to win games because of Rivers' supporting cast. Also, look at the Jaguars. They also constructed a good defense and a good line and then found a quarterback to take them to the championships. They are a perennial winner. Many other teams have also utilized this formula to create a winning team. They understand the fact that a quarterback can only succeed if he is surrounded by good players. However, here in Atlanta, the organization follows a slightly different formula - King Arthurism. Though King Arthurism may work, it is highly improbable. While other teams start with the supporting cast for the quarterback, King Arthurism starts with the quarterback. The problem with this philosophy is that no matter how good of a quarterback you have, having him play on a team that doesn't have the right pieces is just a free ticket to failure. Without a good line to block, the quarterback gets pressured, sacked, and loses confidence. Without a running game to rely on, the offense doesn't have anything to fall back on if the passing game is not working. Without a good defense, the quarterback will never get a chance to redeem himself. When it comes down to it, King Arthurism will likely lead to Matt Ryan's failure. Though Ryan may have immense potential to succeed, he probably will not succeed here in Atlanta, unless the organization plays every card correctly from here on out. Unlike other teams where a new quarterback comes into a situation with a foundation built already, Matt Ryan has to come to a place where the dust has not even settled from the rubble.
  8. I wouldn't be so sure about that. Once he sees that games are blacked-out, he might have to put in Matt Ryan just to attract more fans. Winning secures tickets and attracts fans but so do players. If Matt Ryan were to play, I'm sure more people would attend the games just to see how Ryan does. There are also Matt Ryan fans, who come to the game just to see their player play.
  9. So you rather have me make a new thread each time I want to respond? This just makes less threads for the boards.
  10. What are you talking about? This is the only name I have. Awesome, another guy that knows what arguement I was making! Thanks Yes, and I am John Kincade. :w00t: This just makes no sense at all. Why would I have two accounts if one can do the job? It just wastes time, effort, and energy.
  11. boy thats funny. i didn't see vick mentioned in his opinion. to put it short, he thinks until we prove we are a better team we shouldn't break the shiny new toy just out the box till the pieces around it are better. Dude, I can't believe it! You are the first guy that ever gets my posts! Thanks man! Good summary too.
  12. King Arthur may be rich, but that doesn't me that he couldn't use a few extra dollars. As a businessman, he's always looking to make more. My post had nothing to do with Vick and was more about if King Arthur and Matt Ryan and how King Arthur may choose to start Ryan for a few extra bucks.
