  1. I like to take a higher level view. What did AS do and what did he not do? He had a battering ram in the form of Henry. He has a skilled QB who had limitations. He had an OL rotation into non-stellar players. So, he used Henry. There was no sneaky surprise. He laughs about thinking we need a first down, no problem, give the ball to Henry and then get out of his way. Unlike what we did to Ryan, he did not ask Tannehill to do what Tannehill could not do. The Titans played within the capabilities of their QB. He got his OL depth ready for game time. Between the Falcons and the
  2. I can do this. Divit? Digit? Dimple? Derrier? Wait. wait... Dongle, right? Is it dongle?
  3. You cannot analyze what happened to the Falcons the last few seasons and conclude the problem was MR. That requires a lack of football knowledge that no Falcon fan could possible have. That would be like having a driver's license and not know which side to drive on.
  4. Looking at the comprehensive set of skills, MR wins. If you isolate different skills, either looks better. Chris Chandler was one of the very best deep ball passers to play the game. Few have ever handled the blitz like Ryan. Chandler reminds me of Darryl "The Mad Bomber" Lamonica. Lamonica had football IQ at the level of Matt Ryan. I am not sure Chandler was at that level. Also, no fault of Chandler, but his body was one of his biggest limitations. I hated hearing him disrespectfully called Crystal Chandelier, but he was injured often. Even when starting, he seemed to always display
  5. I am too seasoned to be a homer. I suffered through too many really bad QBs. Piano Man, Kurt Kittner, Byron Leftwich, Tony Grazianni, and others. So, to take a homer view of any Falcon QB would be ignoring many lessons from the past. You have implied that any QB starting in the NFL could be in the same class as Ryan and that those fans believe their QB is very good. I think not. I do not listen much to analyst but few do not put Ryan in the top half. Many have put him in the top 10. And, he could hang there after playing in Dirk Koetter offenses. I think not recognizing the ineptitud
  6. Yep. I have hope for Ollison, but I do hope he looks at Huntley and recognizes it is do or die time for him. He needs to start off this spring like a monster. If he does well, my respect for Quinn will drop even further.
  7. Wait. Are you saying Mozart did not use synthesizers? How do you know what he had hidden behind his amplifiers? Yeah. That is what I thought. 😆
  8. Why can't he do it? You did. Don't your rules apply to all of us? Where did you acquire this authority? Matt Ryan and Tom Brady are NFL quarterbacks. Tom Brady and Matt Ryan are both very good quarterbacks. Tom Brady has accomplished more than Matt Ryan because he has had HCs that understand the team they were coaching and put them in situations they could win. If the Falcons finally have a competent Front Office, Matt Ryan may show he is in the same class as Tom Brady. I am probably in a lot of trouble now.
  9. I tell people Genesis was probably the most progressive and talented of all the progressive bands. The response is usually "huh?" I explain, no, not them. The real Genesis that vanished into pop rock. They were the beautiful butterfly that metamorphosised into catepillar.
  10. I don't like classical music in the strictest terms. I do like symphonies. Ralph Vaughan Williams orchestrated a lot of great symphonies. Aaron Copeland wrote many great scores. If you watched cowboy movies in the last century, you probably heard a lot of Copeland. Also, Keith Emerson, of Emerson Lake and Palmer, was a huge fan. ELP was very progressive rock. Surprisingly, Copeland like Emerson's covers. How many great movies benefited from the scores of John Williams? I could go on but it is time to stop.
  11. Has anyone noticed how one poster is monopolizing the bottom of this thread?
  12. Easy there. You are going to excite the QB@4 mob. I just got them tucked in for their naps.
  13. Have you seen me carrying a clipboard? It is impressive even if I do trip occasionally.
  14. You are really hurt that Ryan is our QB. You can project your hurt feelings onto me if you like. I am unaffected. I see you for what you are. I have known people like you. I get it. Live the best life you can.
  15. The bigger question is why these two are running a campaign when Dimitroff is gone and Ryan is clearly set to be our QB in 2021? I guess they really enjoyed the QB@4 drama and miss that so much they need to create new drama.
  16. Overpaid is the opinion of a few fans. It is not fact. I have stated facts and you continue to state you already know those things. Well, Einstein, we know how much Ryan is paid. We know our cap situation. So, why are you stating these things? Did you think we did not know? Do you have a plan or was I correct when I labeled this whining? What is your purpose?
  17. And, what is the point of that? Thomas Dimitroff is gone. He is unlikely to be willing to take General Managing tutorials from you. TD extended Ryan until it was not reasonable to do it again. Now, the combination of TD's management strategy and the reduced cap resulting from Covid 19, we have big cap issues. I have been stating this for months. This cannot be undone and TD has already been fired. Take a vacation.
  18. @PriMeTiiMe, @Spts1, the 2021 draft is done. It is over. Matt Ryan is our QB in 2021. His contract precludes any trade. Read this very carefully. If a player is released, cut, or retires, he entire cap is due next season. If a player is traded, his bonus cap does not move to the acquiring team. It remains with the team releasing the player. The Falcons cannot trade Ryan. There are calls about trades because the acquiring team would not have to pay Ryan's bonus cap. The Falcons would have to pay that. Imagine, trade for Ryan, pay him $30M, and don't give him any bonus because h
  19. We did not have to restructure Ryan's contract year after year. That was a strategy deployed by Thomas Dimitroff. It is not a practice that can be sustained. Ryan was a team player and did what was asked. OK. Take a deep breath. Who kicked the can down the road? No, it was not Matt Ryan. He is not authorized by the Falcons to rewrite his contract. Who? Come on, you know the answer. BTW - Draft is done. Ryan is our QB. Sit back, relax.
