  1. Step back. You just quoted those two blowhards? That's television for the lowest common denominator. Are you the lcd? Don't play yourself. Save posting it. I could give a ****.
  2. False dilemma. Those aren’t mutually exclusive choices. So, Extending Ryan.
  3. Nah, chief. It wasn't the Jets game that makes Matt Ryan the undisputed leader of this team. It's the 14 years of being as tough as anyone in the NFL, a Rookie of the Year award, an MVP, an Offensive Player of the Year, an All-Pro selection, 2 NFC Championship games, 1 NFC Championship, 7th most completions all-time, 9th most passing yards all-time, 5th most passing yards per game all-time, 9th best pass completion percentage all-time, 8th most 4th quarter comebacks all-time, 10th most passing touchdowns all-time, 12th highest passer rating all-time, 3rd highest playoff passer rating all-time, 2nd highest playoff completion percentage all-time, etc., etc., etc.. It's the fact that Pro Football Reference lists the following QBs as Matt Ryan's career peers: Dan Marino*, Drew Brees, Brett Favre*, Fran Tarkenton*, Peyton Manning*, Joe Montana*, Ken Anderson, Tom Brady, Philip Rivers, Warren Moon*Aaron Rodgers We don't "got a long way to go" when it comes to Matt Ryan...you do, because Matt left your narrative in the dust long ago.
  4. I agree with you, though. I think the red pants would be a cool change-up.
  5. Unfortunately, that combo results in a half red stripe, half black stripe that is completely mismatched. Doubt we'll ever see it unless they make a modification. Bad design, on that one.
  6. Arthur Smith doesn't have a "weakness" scheming routes to get receivers open. He's literally been one of the best route combo coordinators the past two years. Just because he doesn't ignore the run game doesn't mean it's because he's clueless about passing. You guys do realize a strong pass scheme and a strong run game are not mutually exclusive concepts, right?
  7. That was our own doing, no matter how many passes Brady completed. The Saints suck from birth.
  8. As a Falcons fan, the correct answer to "Saints vs. _______?" is never "Saints."
  9. Is anybody else enjoying football better this week knowing we now have a coach that embraces the offensive concepts that made us a top-10 historical offense in 2016? It's been depressing the last few years watching LaFleur resurrect Rodgers' career, and Kyle do his thing in San Fran, knowing we had that kind of innovation, and somehow backslid into Dirk Koetter. I forgot what hope felt like. It feels sooo good.
  10. Both of these reports are at least 2 days old. And both seem like an assumption based on both TF and Brady working for the Saints a couple of years ago. The Arthur Smith interest seems to have more legs, but who knows at this point.
  11. When you read the article posted, Brady being Fontenot's preference appears to be an assumption by the author, not based on anything solid. I trust before deciding to hire Fontenot, Blank, McKay, and TF were on the same page about the HC hire.
  12. That's the big question. I trust that if we hire him, he's sold his plan, and has a decent staff in tow.
  13. Posted this in another thread: Arthur Smith's offense is very similar to Shanahan's, and he sets up defenses in much the same way Kyle does. He uses pre-snap motion to give the QB easy reads, runs majority outside zone run scheme, uses play-action bootlegs off of run looks, uses multiple TE sets, and keeps the FB in the check-down game plan. Every play looks the same whether run or pass. Smith's offense is much closer to the offense that Matt won an MVP running than anything we've run in the past couple of years. Don't assume that because Henry is a HOSS, Smith must be running some archaic "3 yards and a cloud of dust" Woody Hayes scheme. Henry is a stud, but Smith isn't going to require a gigantic freak like him to succeed running the ball. Our very similar offense in 2016 made Freeman and Coleman the best two-back combo in the league.
  14. What are you talking about? Arthur Smith's offense is very similar to Shanahan's, and he sets up defenses in much the same way Kyle does. He uses pre-snap motion to give the QB easy reads, runs majority outside zone run scheme, uses play-action bootlegs off of run looks, uses multiple TE sets, and keeps the FB in the check-down game plan. Every play looks the same whether run or pass. Smith's offense is much closer to the offense that Matt won an MVP running, than anything we've run in the past couple of years. I guess some of you assume that because Henry is a HOSS, Smith must be running some archaic "3 yards and a cloud of dust" Woody Hayes scheme.
  15. Lay off the Refried Beans for a while, and you might stop cropdusting TATF with this flatulence you pass-off as posts.
  16. I'd like to know where the illegal contact flag was on the sack. They literally grabbed Julio on the crossing route.
  17. The audio/video of Ryan was taken from the play before the TD - the 3rd and 1 where we needed a first down to run out the clock. Even then, Ryan was telling him not to score.
  18. Lots of dumb in this thread, and on the board in general these days. These folks will most likely get what they deserve when Matt Ryan is gone. I'm done defending Ryan, because his career needs no defense. He's had a great career. Not a good career, a great one, and he continues to perform well despite being surrounded by a clown show. Anyone who continues to denigrate this QB is either pushing an agenda, or simply does not understand what they are watching. Arguing with either is a waste of time.
  19. I said nothing of the sort - so, you've made a faulty leap of logic there. Given Russ is four years younger, and a helluva QB, I choose Russ today. Give me the choice of either to start a franchise, at the beginning of their careers, and I'm taking Matt Ryan due to his size, and scheme versatility. But, I wouldn't argue with anyone who would take Russell Wilson given that scenario. They are both THAT great. Historically great. Can't lose proposition. In fact, if you think Russell Wilson is great, you have to concede Matt Ryan is great (and vice versa)... Russell Wilson's Career Similarity Years 3-8: Pretty undeniably great, right? Now, what about Matt Ryan's career similarity? Moral of the story: You have a hard time explaining what is wrong with Ryan, because there is nothing wrong with Ryan.
  20. It's good to see some Falcon fans can be objective. I like Ridley. Really I do. In fact, I swear I love Calvin Ridley. It's just that he sucks, and I hate him, and can't understand why other people see his great play, and don't come to the same conclusion I have...that he BLOWS. This team isn't winning, and he's part of the team. Ergo, Calvin Ridley is steamy trash. I just wish Ridley homers would accept it. I do like him, though.
