jes2400 Posted April 18, 2008 Share Posted April 18, 2008 Here's part of an article I read in USA Today Sports Weekly.They were previewing the QB's for the draft.This is part of the piece on Ryan:[Ryan's ultra-competiveness comes through when he discusses having too many passes land in enemy hands."As a quarterback,you never want to turn it over.It's something I've definitly got to work on,"he says."At the same time, I don't want to lose my aggressiveness.You have to be willing to take some chances and throw the ball into tight windows.You have to know when to take the shot and when to choke back.One thing is for sure:Any mistakes Ryan made did not occur because he was rattled during critical situations.He was part of the most succesfull senior class in Boston College history.He will forever be remembered as "Matty Ice,"a moniker he relishes."I feel I play better when there is a lot of pressure and everything is flying around you,"he says.For me,that's when it gets good and it's fun."]I brought this up because the biggest complaint on this board about ryan is his 19INTs.Ron Jaworski in the article also noted Ryan's lack of reliable recievers,they weren't good at separating from DB's,and Ryan would force some throws.While I still don't want us to take him at 3 if we do I'll be okay with it.Some board members act as if this would be the worst thing in the world and I think thats overreacting.I feel better knowing a lot of those INT's were from trying to make plays and not from poor passing.If there was one flaw on Brett Farve it was him trying to mak plays by forcing balls into tight areas.That's why he had a lot of INT's,but he still had a hall of fame career and a superbowl ring.Am I saying Ryan is the next Farve?Of course not!But I think a lot of people are making too much out of his INT's.IF the Falcons pick him,let's rally behind him and hope he bring that aggresiveness to us.Our recievers won't have any trouble separating from the DB's!
