schwarzenegger321 Posted December 1, 2015 Share Posted December 1, 2015 Occam's razor, simply put, states that when there are a number of potential complex solutions, the easy, most obvious one is usually correct. Fact, for eight years Matt Ryan has been considered by pretty much everyone but Swift as being an above average to elite QB, who can view the field, react to defenses, run play action very well, is effective down field, distributes the ball well, expertly runs the no huddle, has a very fast release and is an accurate passer. He lacks physical tools to be a mobile or running QB and needs some support, like most drop back passers, such as a very good WR or running game. Shanahan has not been with a single team more than what 3 years? Runs a West Coast hybrid offense that tends to pass first to establish the run, relies on a mobile QB with physical tools, dictates that the QB react and not read the defense, force the ball to covered targets and generally slows the game down (no no-huddle) to help the play action game. Generally, everything that Matt Ryan has not done in the past 8 years and oh yeah, he really doesn't have the tools to do. I don't think Ryan is going to succeed in this offense. I don't think he has the tools and at this point Atlanta needs to make a choice. Keep the OC philosophy and get a QB who is mobile and can run the WC offense, or change the OC philosophy to more of a traditional read and react offense. Until then we are going to be looking at a train wreck. If you want someone to blame, blame TD, Quinn and Blank. If we keep Shanahan and his philosophy, just remember this. He refused to adapt his offense when he had a well above average to elite QB, in his prime, that was not hurt and ruined the offense. Do you really want someone like that around. And for those who think that Ryan should be able to change his "style". Really??? Tell me one athlete that was able to change their athletic "style" and be successful. Just one?
