Let’s open this can of worms!!!
Mike Vick had character flaws? He needed support at times during his career that he did not receive because the Falcons decided to hire a playboy wannabe Jim Mora Jr to coach the team instead of a real coach that could have kept Vick on a straighter path? That being said if Vick had not thrown away his career in a dog fighting scandal! The Falcons would have won at least 1 Super Bowl and possibly more!
RYAN has flawless character! He is the essential QB, tall pocket passer harking back to the good old boys! But as we are witnessing more and more, his arm simply is in decline! All players decline? It’s the natural process of aging and some do it sooner than projected?
Ryan while producing great numbers lacks the intangibles to produce a Championship? He simply does not lead the offense and does only what the playbook and coordinator tell him to do! He is a businessman on the field, not a athlete! People say let Ryan call his own plays? Look at all the coordinators this team has been though! Have you considered Ryan is incapable of calling his own plays!
Vick while lacking in character had the intangibles! The things that simply cannot be taught! He could make plays when the pocket collapsed which it often does with the Falcons Offensive line? Ryan is useless when they take away his 2nd read!
I could go on but let me just end it with this?
Vick put people ***** in seats! Regardless of record! Seeing Vick play was a ticket everybody wanted! Ryan does not put people in seats! He has no ability to excite the general fan base and his noodle arm which generates plenty of stats in Garbage time is not Championship caliber! Bringing excitement is a intangible Vick had in abundance and Ryan Sadly cannot even put Julio Jones a gifted athlete in advantageous situations and Julio gets mugged often when Ryan forces the ball to him in triple coverages! But most importantly
28-3 would have never happened wth Mike Vick!!
Im open to flaming but I’m correct on these points! Vick squandered away his career! But He would have won a Championship if Blank knew how to hire a real coach! Ryan is a system QB will will never exceed expectations and does not have the intangibles to operate outside the box to overcome poor coaching!
