  1. What hurts me with Matt is, if he didn't have a constant carousel of offensive coordinators using him to achieve a HC position, then his tenure here would've been great. Every coach that has walked thru Flowery Branch since him being drafted has failed this man. Tom Brady, Drew Brees and even Aaron Rodgers in his prime have had the benefit of familiarity when it came to coaches, not Matt Ryan. I'm not like a lot of the fans that want to keep accountability simple for the sake of being edgy or funny.


    Even the length of TD's tenure could be attributed to Matt Ryan being able to perform with incomplete teams. We've also seen what he's capable of with an ELITE offensive mind with Shanahan, a freaking MVP season. Matt Ryan has shown me just HOW MUCH the stars have to be aligned to win a championship, there is even more luck than I imagined but also competent leadership in every phase. There is only one Tom Brady... One

    Our expectations were entirely too high for Matt. Dude had the highest ambitions for this city; Gave everything, but like I said... Every coach that has come in and out of Flowery Branch since his tenure has failed him.

    Edit: Also, the parameters to which I judge a QB will be different in this way.

    I will no longer demand a QB to elevate his teams play. Teams that play complementary football make it the furthest, and I expect the next QB to have strengths and weaknesses. So, if the QB isn't playing great, I expect the run game and the defense to bail him out. If the run game isn't working, I expect the QB to help pick up some of the slack and make a few big plays. If neither is working, I want the defense to make a few stops/plays to get the team going momentum-wise. I will not expect a QB to elevate his game/have elite performances for the entire season because the entire team revolves around his play. Nope, I'll never do that foolishness again. I want to see TEAM football and while having a competent QB is apart of that team, I am not looking for us to have an Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady like talent for us to compete. Team ball is championship ball.

    what's your basis for this statement? Just wondering because they are friends

    This I didn’t know... I recant what I said. I would love to have Smith as a GM; He has picked a few of the best players of this generation in Watt and Hopkins. I know we have to do our due diligence but picking Joe Brady as an HC means looking beyond Matt Ryan’s tenure or pretty much giving up on being SB contenders. I could be wrong tho but man that would suck.

    They have an offense to compliment their growing defense. 

    The offensive mind with the right DC who can get the most out of this defense would be great.

    Their run game is the greatest strength! It takes pressure off of Baker Mayfield and... Look all the teams in the playoffs have a solid run game. Balance is the key for teams trying to play football in January.

    Of all of the pairings that I am not excited about....this is at the top of the list.

    If it’s true then they aren’t even thinking about Matt Ryan and Co. we are two years away from a rebuild if we get this combo and the 2 years will be meaningless; They aren’t even trying to win a Super Bowl within the 2 year window with this combo.

    Been sayin it, but Eberflus has really maximized his unit. If not for Allen practically willing this team to victory and some bad decisions by Reich (and great catches by Gabriel Davis), the Colts easily win this. I think this personnel under Quinn and co this last year is 4-12 or worse.

    With some of these coordinators, I will never underestimate the talent of their QB while assessing their coaching ability.



    Big Ben

    Aaron Rodgers 

    Tom Brady


    I will not let their coordinator ride their coattails to a head coach position. As a matter of fact I critique them even harder.

  6. How a coach treats players does NOT matter as much as how you USE them. There have been a variety of different types of coaches to win a Super Bowl and it had nothing to do with how you treat the players and everything to do with knowing how to gather and use talent. Everything else is a side note in the orchestra of coaching great football teams.

    Yup only two coaches I know of that lucked out Pete Carroll with some Wilson kid and Billy Bell in NE with some Tom guy in 6th round I think.

    Majority of QB's are from 1-3 round I'd wager that have had long careers maybe not HOF, but at least been serviceable and not just some backup.

    It’s great that you bring Wilson up because him and Big Ben had a play style that transcends scheme because they were impossible to sack. When you can buy time in the pocket for your WR to get open they could have success anywhere.

    Barring some unforeseen drastic change, there is no way Trevor is there at 4.

    Under no circumstances, none... And I mean NONE! Will Trevor fall past the Jags. People don’t understand how this will not happen it’s no point in even talking about it. Trevor with the right OC will be a star tho. I honestly look at him as the QB equivalent of a LeBron and I know that’s saying a lot but dude mentally is exactly where he needs to be to succeed on the next level.

    Daniel Jones, Dwayne Haskins, Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Mitch Trubisky, Jared Goff, Carson Wentz, Paxton Lynch, Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota, Black Bortles, Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater, I can go on and on...

    Don't act like this doesn't go both ways...

    People said Jameis had the best skill set of any QB in years and we see how that turned out lol. Andy Reid has shown us with McNabb and Maholmes that a QB’s success is determined by whether a HC can develop them so with that being said I always felt like the OC or offensive minded HC is the best predicator of whether a QB will succeed or not.

    I'm the absolute worst when evaluating Safeties. I get too caught up in watching them hit.

    It is a definite need. Rico's contract is almost certainly going to result in him being cut.

    I need all 22 to judge them accurately... You have to judge by range and how they work in concert with DB’s...
