    The #Falcons front loaded their contract with Matt Ryan so they could assess a possible regression in the late years of his contract. They structured the contract to draft his successor in 2022, but with the draft position the team is in, the plan is accelerated.
    With the #Falcons being in prime QB position, the plan of drafting a 2022 QB is moved up a year, hypothetically & logically. If they opt not to draft one this year, it would HAVE to be next yr, unless they either want to extend him or have a Fitzpatrick type situation with a rookie and a stopgap starter.
    And unless they LOVE a QB next year already, which is massively unlikely and not that smart, waiting a year makes no sense all things considered. They’d save $15.1M if they cut him before the third day of the 2022 season. Draft a QB this year, let him learn and ride behind Matt and assess the situation from there.

    You MUST pay him his prorated bonus as his PRB = guaranteed, but his guaranteed salary negates to 0 dollars from $5.5M at the start of the 2022 season. So, you draft a QB while you're in the top 5 now, or, you'd have to draft a guy next year OR continue to pay him his bonuses if you don't and bank on a rookie being a capable year 1 starter. Think Miami. We would have a Tua/Fitzpatrick **** show type situation. 
    Matt Ryan is NOT problem A, but his contract is set up for a scenario just like this. They pay him early while he's great and assess a possible regression. Regardless of whether or not you believe he is regressing, to ignore the fact that by the end of his contract he'll be almost 40 is malpractice. Financially, the team banked on a regression starting in 2021-2022. Guarantee none of his salary late (if there is a regression) but give him his bonuses for playing/stability. This is textbook veteran QB salary cap.
    A new GM and a new HC are entering the page as well. Cap flexibility is the most essential piece to an incoming front office and I doubt they're looking at an old QB and banking on his better years being in front of him while sitting at pick 4 or pick 3 (not sure yet). 
    Just think it financially makes sense. Is he good enough to earn an extension in two years? Maybe! He might even have an MVP season next year. But if he doesn't and you opt out of a QB this year, you are in trouble. That will be an interesting decision, but thats my 2 cents as to why I bet they go QB.

    Oooooof. Jones and Ridley are outstanding separators. Gage is good.
    They can absolutely separate, and with an improved OC, Jones and Ridley can both have over 1500 yards.

    From the Athletic,
    "The 6-3, 245-pound Parsons, a two-time honoree on our Freaks list, is truly a rare athlete. He’s run the 40 at Penn State in 4.43, and his pro agility time of 4.24 is almost as impressive. Some might be skeptical at those numbers given how big he is, but keep in mind that a whole bunch of recent Penn State players (Saquon Barkley, Mike Gesicki, Troy Apke and John Reid, among others) have backed it up at the NFL combine. Parsons will run a 4.4 40 at 245 to 250 pounds, predicts another Nittany Lions coach."

    "It always is best player available. It's vitally important, in my opinion, to the success of consistent drafting to distinguish between need and value. I think when you set your board, you set your board according to value and where you see it, players' abilities and capabilities to perform. If you can get a player at a corresponding value in a round that's a position of need… that's the ideal scenario and situation." – Rick Smith via HoustonTexans.com"

    CMarinoNFL got a reaction from papachaz in Marvin Lewis in the running?   
    TBH, I think he and Jim Caldwell will be front runners. 
    I will say this. I think the #Falcons are gonna avoid the Joe Brady/Lincoln Riley type head coach. McKay has said time and time again that the status decision on Ryan and Julio is something that must be discussed and taken seriously. I think ownership is likely to target someone who:
    -Has experience making tough and bold roster and cap decisions.
    -Has a history of winning.
    With how much control it seems like McKay and Blank are allocating to the new regime, I think the key agenda will be to find guys w/ experience. I think they know its in their better judgement to seek a regime whos been through the wringer before. I'd hate for a guy like Joe Brady to come along and his first ever head coaching decision were to be to get rid of a hall of fame QB just because he's adapted to the college game.  Yes, the GM likely makes the FINAL decision, but, from the Athletic: 
    What if a GM candidate asks about moving on from Ryan or Jones?
    McKay: Give us a plan. Show us what you want to do and show us why. Show us how this gets us to Ws and make sure you actually execute the plan. At this point, you’re in partnership with the head coach so you’re going to need to create a common vision. The thing about high priced players is some people look at them as problems and some look at them as assets. I look at them and say we’re fortunate to have them.
    Just thinking out loud. I think the current management wants a HC who's proven he can win and who's proven he can handle 1) the media and 2) tough decisions and personnel/roster control.
    Also, from the Athletic: 
    McKay: If you know Arthur, you know he’s about winning. That’s what he wants, and that’s what he’s gonna do. He’s much more about the plan and how that gets us to Ws. His agenda is, we need to get these decisions right because we have to get the franchise back to where it belongs.
    Marvin Lewis: 131–122–3 (.518)
    Jim Caldwell: 62–50 (.554)
    Playoff wins are scarce, but I think with a good foundation and good coaching staff, they'd be just fine. FWIW, I have Caldwell over Lewis. Look how much worse Detroit got when he left.

    CMarinoNFL reacted to Sidecar Falcon in Whenever someone says we don’t need a QB...   
    Look at these threads. There were a few posters content with staying with Redman. Not to mention I saw a few posts who said that Brohm and Henne would be better. Let’s not forget the DJ Shockley fan club.
    Perusing both past and current posts; I see a lot of the same rhetoric and sentiment between these two time periods. The same arguments being made. The same sentiments being uttered. Point is that the last time we were in a position to draft a QB, it turned out pretty d@mn good.
    Whether people believe it or not, QB is a need. There’s a lot of time between now and the draft. We still need to hire both a HC and a GM. I’m hoping these hires will bring a fair amount of clarity/direction on which path we take for the draft.
