If we are always going to have mediocre OL at best...we need a QB that is a double threat not a Matt Ryan type QB

this Dimitroff and Quinn regime has shown over the last 5 years that they are  inept at picking O Line talent (and/or they just don’t make a great OL a priority)

therefore why have a statue QB like Matt Ryan who is not a dual threat behind a sub par OL.

either really ramp up OL starters and depth with the draft and FA and keep Matt Ryan, or keep the same ol sub par OL with no depth and trade Matt Ryan and get a great dual threat QB

You would think the Falcons front office would understand this.. Make a pocket passers your franchise QB while not giving him a line or time to throw.. Things just arnt connecting with the organization right now

WHY is Vick's name brought up ANYTIME somebody questions Ryan or suggest the Falcons need to look at the future at the position???

In this case, he was referring  to the type of qb Vick was.  

What SyCo said. I've been criticizing Ryan plenty, but this thread is acting like a dual threat QB is necessary when you have a bad line, when realistically, a decently mobile one who is talented in other areas is totally fine. Russell Wilson is the only true dual threat QB that I'd say is elite.

Our OL is so bad we can't run either, though. We need a better OL or better scheming (ideally both). Sark needs demoted and we need Kubiak...jmho.

Can't win with Matt Ryan putting up MVP numbers again. Time to switch up the formula.

Once again. The formula is easy. Protect Matt with an average  NFL quality line and he pretty much does the rest. 

It isn't rocket science.

The only problem with “double threat” QBs is that they are rarely good passers. 

The running QBs may be exciting to watch but they don’t win championships. Russel Wilson is the exception.

I don't understand the thought process of a mobile or scrambling QB can succeed behind a bad o-line if we still stick with one.  No QB can succeed behind a subpar o-line if you have no runnnig game or pass protection more than a second or 2.  It's not like a mobile QB is faster than fricken lightning as alot of the defensive players coming after him is just as fast as him most of the time.  If you see a mobile QB succeeding then 99% of the time it's because their o-line is atleast playing adequate for the most part or their defense is quite good and giving them alot of chances over and over again while keeping the other teams scoring lower so their defense can't just go after the QB while up big.

Falcons did that already, it didn't work. 


If you are talking about in 2016 it wasn't his fault it didn't work he did his job the dude has the 4tf highest QB rating in superbowl history.   Who you need to be blasting on is Jake Matthews, Devonta Freeman, and Kyle Shannahan for that superbowl loss.  All 3 people who i think are great to amazing at their jobs and who i loved being falcons or still being falcons.  But they crapped the bed and cost us a championship.  Heck even after the sack Ryan and Sanu still got us back into FG range that Jake Matthews had to hold on putting us like 20+ yards back on 3rd down and out of Fg range.

It got them to within 3 running plays of winning a SB against the freaking GOAT. With Mack playing with what amounted to a fracture in his leg, and our backup RT.
