I Hate It But


Recommended Posts

Last year Ryan started the 1st game of the year against N.O. by rolling out on a good number plays, and it looked great and the Falcons offense put up good numbers. After that we saw maybe 3 rollouts the rest of the year and Ryan was sacked often. Ryan knows how to throw on the run, and it is almost always successful, but just like the hurry up offense, it is under utilized if not completely forgotten for most of the season.

That wasn't really on Ryan, as much as it was a plus for the DB. He simply read the play all the way, and got perfect position on Roddy.

He said himself, that he knew exactly where that ball was going from the moment he saw how we were lined up.

Yeah... Same play from the Ravens game that year.

At that point in the game there are 2 options throw it in the endzone or to the sideline.

Gotta give Ryan a little of the blame for not throwing it away but Mularkey's play calling was the main culprit.

How is that not on Ryan?

We are lucky to have a talented, confident quarterback like Matt Ryan! Remember the Pro Bowl, Jason Garret, head coach of the Cowboys and Tony Romo and others trying to call the play? Matt said no! I got this! Then he threw a winning td to Jimmy Graham with seconds. That takes a big set to pull that off!

I didn't say that it wasn't on Ryan. I said that it wasn't as much on Ryan. The whole thing was a timing route, where Ryan was throwing it to where the WR was supposed to be. Roddy hadn't even turned around yet, when the DB grabbed that ball. That's the danger of plays like that. When you're making that quick pass, there's not a lot of room for change. When the DB knows where you're putting that ball, before it leaves your hands, you're not in a good place.

Again, Ryan is, in no way, without blame on this one, but I'm giving more credit to the DB. He just flat out made a great play.
