The one time we went deep today


Recommended Posts

I had the binocs on Harry the entire route. He eased up at about the 20, as if he didn't think the ball was coming his way. When he saw Ryan airing it out, he tried to run under it, but it was too late. That ball was perfectly thrown. Had HD stuck with his route, it would have been six points, and alot of the questions about vertical routes and arm strength would have settled down for awhile.

In the scheme of things today it didn't matter. But this is exactly the type thing we can't afford to screw up in a tight game. It's also something that we need to attempt more than once (or zero times) a game.

Agreed. He definitely wasn't at full speed the whole way. Had he kept the jets on he would have at least gotten his hands on it.

AGREED!! ESPECIALLY with the high frequency of pass interference calls in the NFL...It's almost automatic, if you play a receiver too close. We'll DEFINITELY need to take our shots against the Saints because I KNOW they will against us!

On tv it appeared that Ryan overthrew HD badly. But, I was wondering why the coach appeared to be upset with HD an the sideline.

Great post. Sometimes what you see on TV is misleading. Ryan did miss a TD pass when he failed to see a wide open Ovie in front of the goal line but it is good to hear he was right on the money on the pass to HD.

Typical Ryan apologist would say that an incomplete was thrown "perfectly"

Well done

You're a dumbazz! You realize it is possible to do something completely correct and still fail! Or have you not learned that from life yet? HD, let up on the route. Ryan lead HD perfectly and put the ball 6 yards in the endzone. If HD couldn't get the ball, no one would have. What do you want. 40 yard passes every play?

Exactly. He had his man beat and began to slow down. It was very clear. We've got seats in the middle of that end zone, mezz level. He was running right at us. That was NOT an overthrow.

Dude, were you at the game with a pair of 7x sitting on Douglas the whole play? If not, then you might wanna pipe it down.

Furthermore, I am no Ryan apologist. If you look at my post history you'll see I posted questioning his arm strength just a few days ago.

I'm only saying that would have been SIX if HD had run the entire route full speed. And that is a fact.

I'm a falcon fan. I don't give a s*** if it's Matt Ryan or Meg Ryan at QB as long as they get the job done.

You going to be able to keep this up for ten more years or so?

Ryan is awful young with alot of years left to start for us and it doesn't appear you want to move on with your life.

You hate Ryan, thats fine but sooner or later you have to talk about something with substance in your life.
