Just posted on the NFL’s page (I didn’t watch it). He’s somehow dropped 40 spots after putting up the 2nd best season of his career and sporting one of the least efficient offensive lines in football.

Drew Brees went 7-9 for three straight years yet never left the top 15

Just my honest opinion.   I don't think Matt will ever get his rightful respect... even if we win a superbowl.   For some reason ppl have in there mind he is good but just outside elite....

For further detail, and just how misleading this whole thing is and how it's incredibly dumb to get upset over it...

Ideally, all players would do it.  This year, the league says only 481 of them actually did.  That’s 28.3 percent of all active players.

“All players are given the opportunity to vote through ballots we send to all 32 teams around Thanksgiving,” NFL Network spokesman Alex Riethmiller told PFT via email.  “For convenience sake, we try to time it with Pro Bowl balloting, so they can do them together.  In addition to ballots collected that way, we also give ballots to many of the players that we interview for our shows.  This year, in total, we received 481 votes.”

To vote, each player lists only his top 20 players in the league.  The player listed at No. 1 gets 20 points, the player listed at No. 2 gets 19 points, and the process continues until the player listed at No. 20 gets one point.

So it’s really not a “top 100” list.  It’s the 100 players who received the highest vote totals from players who attempted to list their personal top 20, presumably without the benefit of all 32 rosters or starting lineups or Pro Bowl qualifiers or anything else that would ensure they aren’t accidentally overlooking someone as they pull 20 names out of thin air.

Also there's that 28.3 number again my goodness the universe hates us.

QBs are respected for 3 primary reasons (1) SB wins (especially early in your career), (2) extending plays, and/or (3) being a gunslinger.  If you're not one of those, you're just not going to get any love from the media, players or fans.  

Rivers is pretty much the only exception.

Ryan is none of those so until he gets a SB win, he will always struggle to even be considered the clear #2 or #3 QB in his own division.  

Hmm.. sorry don't buy it. Everyone was all over Drew Breeses nuts despite not being one of those three before he won the superbowl. Same for Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck etc.

Exactly. It's quite simply the Atlanta effect. It's real. I know we like to complain about lack of respect but it's one thing for the media to think our team isn't good enough to win, but another to look at what Matt Ryan does on a yearly basis and basically dismiss it. If he played in New York, he'd be a poster boy for the NFL. 

I dont totally think it's a Atlanta thing... Julio gets his respect...

I think Matt Ryan went 0-3 in his first 3 playoffs games so ppl just have that image baked in there head... He is a good QB ... Just not good enough to be top tier.

The dude has won the mvp... made 2 nfc championship games and a super bowl since then

Conclusion: People suck

Another big factor: National perception is Atlanta fans hate or blame Matt Ryan

Media keeps pot stirred and meanwhile truth is obscured because if it's not their team why care about a traditional pocket passer?.

Especially when you can watch a mobile QB gunsling it and try to find the next Rodgers or Wilson. :shrug:

Meanwhile, Ryan has outplayed them 3 years running. :tiphat:

I thought about Julio and yeah, he gets it from a lot of places, but even he gets a little disrespect, at least from fans (and Madden lol) Not players as much. And maybe that's just their bias. The media really is the culprit behind the lack of respect for Ryan. They push false narratives and don't really cover Ryan as much, I guess because he's perceived as vanilla. 

 

The top 100 list is also a massively flawed voting system, only allowing players to make a top 20.  You know those top twenties don't have a 100 different players on them lol. They fill the list out. They have to.

The good thing is that Ryan could care less about lists like these - he knows he is among the best paid in the NFL which is what counts.

And speaking of a true, accurate metric of your standing in the league, the amount you get paid is excellent in determining where you stand among your peers.
