Dan Marino vs Matt Ryan College Stats


Recommended Posts

Is Matt Ryan's td/int ratio that much of a concern? He threw 688 passes last yr?

Hall of Fame QB Marino was picked 27th in the first rd of the '83 draft with 5 other QB's taken before him.

Marino's senior yr he threw 23 int's and only 17 td's. Do we pass on Ryan because of his td int/ratio his sr. yr.?

My question is....would it be a mistake to pass on him?

I really have mixed feelings on Dorsey, Ryan, Brohm, Henne, Flacco........

Ryan's completion pct. is insane for a college QB :D

No it's not.  Brohm and Dixon have insane completion percentages.

 

Sorry my sarcasm was a bit too subtle

:w00t: You got me... my radar totally whiffed on that one. :hehe:

the bottom line is we or no one else really knows just how good MR will be, but those that insist he will be a bust don't have a freaking clue. The jury will be out on him for the next 3-4 yrs. The question remains do we pass on a possible franschise qb or trade down for more picks. or take Long, Dorsey (if available), the other Long, Golshton?????

Difference being Marino was drafted based on physical talent and the strength of his junior year, his senior year was not considered a success and he fell lower than someone with his talent and experience normally would.

so maybe Brohm falls and he's our man or Marino:hehe: or maybe Henne

Brohm put up much much better stats than the both of em.

****, let's use our number 3 on Colt Brennan. He had the best stats ever, he must be the best QB ever.

Sounds a lot like Brohm.

Except Brohm had a sensational senior year and is only falling due to his atrocious defense.

you just didnt put freaking marino in the same thread as ryan? wow.

thats just something you dont do

And thus comes the most common method of dodging the question.

A group of people wills ay "No quarterback with a Touchdown to interception ratio like that his senior year in college can succeed!!!!

Then someone brings up and example, and the reply is, well HE doesdn';t matter, you can't compare HIM!

Its called "Moving goalposts'.

You can look at stats all day but when you look at the player in action on the field, the real difference is in how they play.  I watched Marino torch UGA in the '81 Sugar Bowl.  This guy had a very strong arm, not a cannon, but more like a high caliber rifle.  He was deadly accurate and had the quickest release of any QB I had ever seen.  If you compare these guys on film, Ryan will still be 'loading up' by the time Marino has placed a 'bullet' in the chest of his receiver!

As far as Dan Marino goes, there's nobody that compares. This guy had a release quicker than any QB I've ever seen in over 40 years of watching football.  Ryan isn't even a tadpole in the frog pond as far as this goes.

HOwever he threw a ton of interceptions and didn't have a great completion percentage. Neither of which translated across to the Pros. Ditto for Brett Favre. And I'm sure if I went digging I woudl find a number of other dittos. Yet somehow, it applies to all of them, but Matt Ryan MUST be judged strictly by those two numbers.

(And note I'm saying this as someone who does not want us to pick him with the number three)
