I give you the reaction every Falcons Fan makes when the subject is brought up....^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ The Qb is the bread and butter of a team. Without one you are sure to fail for years ( Ask the browns ). The long debate over keeping a "Vet QB who is ageing v.s. Drafting a Rookie who is unproven" is one that always shakes the core of fan base and franchise. Super Bowls are won and lost over a single pass or play of a QB. So on this same topic we find ourselves facing the inevitable truth in the near future, even if that is years from now, that Matt Ryan won't always be a Falcon. At some point, whether we like it or cast spells of denial to not talk about it, We will need to get a new QB. At least somebody to groom. Disclaimer ~ I wanted to debate not hate on Matt Ryan here! Now here is the thing, and the reason I made this post. Nobody here, unless you are "swifting", will argue that Matt hasn't been a great Falcons QB. He's done a lot for us and we all love having him here. BUT! Matt is showing signs of decline. DON'T COME AT ME WITH THAT "PRACTICE INT DON'T COUNT" B.S OR "THIS IS YEAR ONE IN SHANNY'S SYSTEM" ETC....... I see it, you see it, and the people around the league see it. He is ageing and we have no plan except letting his ride into the sunset and find a new QB from the Millions AND Millions of QB's out there for a Tom Brady type. Wishful thinking is not the answer here. Now hold on. It's not that kind of post. I have two plans. PLAN #1 But what if I told you there was a guy.............Who could be the answer......... Let's say we call up the Browns after the RGIII dumpster fire and offer Matt as the guy to give them hope in 2017. This would also mean picks and money ( not like the brown will use then well enough anyways). Then take Watson #1 overall. Leaving us in prime position for a young cheep stud to learn the game while our defense grows into a monster. As a Clemson homer I would die. He would do well in the Shanny system and become the next Russel Wilson in my eyes. OR PLAN #2 Luke Falk, QB, Washington State Height: 6-4. Weight: 205. Junior this year. Falk plays in a college spread offense, but he puts up big totals of yards and points. In 2015, Falk completed 69 percent of his passes for 4,561 yards with 38 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He is a stay in the pocket kinda guy. Makes his reads and throws DEEP. He only runs if the first down is close or the pocket breaks down to a point he needs to avoid the sack. Rounds 2-3 would be the range to take him after we take more defense. We could groom him for a few years and eventually lat him take over Matt's spot in the future. Matt's stats ( Kinda rhymes ) 2015 stats ~ 21 Td's / 16 INT's / 4591 yards This is not to say he is a bad QB, and some of this comes from the defense giving up lots of points too. You can't out gun peeps all day. We as fans are all hopeful for 2016 and a better season (I know I am). So after all that here is the deal. Either way we would get a guy that can give us hope for the future. Now this is not to say we NEEEEEED to get a QB now, but while we are building this team under Dan Quinn's style of Defensive we should keep in mind that time is ticking. Matt is only an injury away from not contributing, and I don't like the back-up options. What say you? What are your thoughts on the QB situation for the future? Who would you like to see the Falcons pick up or draft? What are your thoughts on Matt getting us to a Superbowl?
