Would you trade Matt Ryan straight up for ....?


Recommended Posts

Matt Ryan is our QB and will probably be for at least a few more seasons, but would anybody take someone else if offered?

Tom Brady (maybe the best, but only a year or two left)?

Aaron Rodgers (better career but in decline)?

Jimmy Garropolo (great future possibly but what has he done)?

Russell Wilson (not really that good without a defense)?

Ben Roethlesberger (cannot even decide on next year)?

Cam Newton (younger but not necessarily wiser)?

Andrew Luck (great arm but not really a winner)?

Drew Brees (older but can definitely throw)?

# 1 Draft Pick (no big cap hit and could draft a college QB)?

Brock Osweiler (the Browns see something in him)?

Jared Goff (one year seasoned and maybe a breakout coming)?



It seems we get a thread every week that says Ryan sucks, we should draft a replacement immediately or such.  But what would be the better alternative to him for 2017 or even 2018?  The guy was MVP and just as he was blind to the rusher before he fumbled in the Superbowl, you would be blind to say he was the reason for our loss.  

He is also only 31 years old which is the prime age these days for QB's and plenty of other QB's are playing as well in their late 30's as their early 30's.  He is obviously expensive, but he does not appear to be grieving over his pay and appears ready to stretch to accommodate the salary cap.

I can't understand why this thread was posted? 

Self-assuring entertainment - the human mind feels more confident in things when it is clear things are right.  

Ryan is our QB and although names have been mentioned, no one has really said why somebody else would be better at this time.

I would not be surprised to see a thread on draft day, however, saying we should trade him then or a thread after our first loss or two next year saying we should consider letting him walk when his contract runs out.  The guy has also performed at such a high level in 2016 that he is probably going to have a down year in 2017 but maybe only slightly.
