Pardon the Interruption-Is Ryan Regressing?

Basically what they said:

Wilbon: Yes, he is regressing. He has not been a "player of impact" in his last 10 games. Atlanta should have beaten Pittsburgh yesterday. Ryan made enough mistakes just on his own to cost Falcons the game. Atlanta's 5-7 in their last 12 games. Ryan has to own his part of that.....no sense of urgency on Atlanta or Ryan's part.

Kornheiser: Flacco may be ahead of Ryan at this point...Don't doubt Ryan after only one regular season game.

Don't shoot the messenger.

Did they give any ideas as to why they think he's regressing? I refuse to believe that it's all on Ryan alone after one close loss.

Yea, but you know the national media is just going to look to a few highlights, a stat sheet, and try to come to their conclusion. It's always been this way when most ESPN personalities talk about our team/QB and you can never get the whole story like that.

I do think MM is holding Ryan and this offense back...

That's possible, but for the first time since we drafted him I'm starting to think it's also possible that Mularkey has employed the scheme that he thinks best fits Ryan's skill set.

That's true. But is he underestimating him? (I obv in no position to question him since he is a coach and I am a fan, but it something to think about) We see flashes of what he could be all the time. It is just not consistent. Thats what leads me to beleive that he may be held back.

Err, Ryan is 7-5 in his last 12 games.

Yeah I saw that too Gritz, and as they pointed out, it's not ONE game they are looking at.

It seems like if our running game isn't working we can't depend on Ryan.

I hope he comes through this slump because I like the guy, but at some point you have to start wondering if maybe he just doesn't have enough physical talent.

Also possible. However, it seemed as though the playcalling was more diverse in the 1st season.

That I totally agree with.....and that's where I think the criticism of Mularkey is valid.

Polamalu ate up that pass yesterday because he saw it all freakin' afternoon.

Well seeing as how we couldn't beat a team w/ their 3rd string qb I c y. Ravens and Flacco wouldn't have lost that game. But us is another story.

Tool. The Ravens have lost to the Steelers WITH Flacco 3 times. Flacco has only beat the Steelers once. Why don't you idiots say "Ryan lost to a 3rd string QB and a Super Bowl caliber defense" on Sunday. Let's review. Flacco is 1-4 vs Pitt. Flacco has a total of 4 TD's, 4 INTS against Pitt in the games he's played. He has also been sacked 16 times in 4 games.

Keep using Flacco to compare to Ryan, because flacco gets chewed up by that defense each year.

Ok that may be fine. MAY BE. But, what's with the SAME plays over and over and over again? Take yesterday for example, how many times was that out route thrown? Eventually, it was gonna get defended or picked off. This is a recurring problem with Mularkey. And that's just one problem with MM.

Also, why is it that our offense moves better when Ryan is calling the plays from the no huddle? Mularkey said he has no control over what Matt does in the no huddle.

One more thing(I've said a billion times now), why is it that BVG got an extension and Mularkey didn't? Honestly, where has the praise been for Mularkey? I've hear Smith and TD talk about how great BVG is, but where for Mularkey?

I am slowly believing that Mularkey is the main problem(along with the OL protection and Matt not going through his progressions)

Bingo!!! Its probably a miracle that they didnt jump even more of the routes. They run the same ones over and over.

Flacco almost lost to that same 3rd string QB last season. Not even close to a comparison. If the Steelers D was at 100%, the Ravens would have gotten crushed in that game. Bad example.

All valid points. Im thinking the front brass may have MM on a short leash. If not, why would they not extende him like you pointed out?

The offense runs so much better when Ryan is calling the plays. Im sure TD and CMS have to see this as well. Blank probably sees this and asks why am I paying MM?

I'm just happy people are starting to look at things from a more realistic point of view.

Just a month ago I, and other members, got negative repped for voicing EXACTLY what everyone's saying now.
