Bryant DID NOT lose us any games by missing FIELD GOALS.

I would rather have a kicker who's 90% accurate on ONE LEG then washed up kickers like Walsh or Georgio who cant even even get their **** together in practice or preseason games.

They ONE job that's it.....and that needs to be surgical.

Matt Bryant even though old has higher IQ and experience than most kickers in last decade.

Gio didn't either. He made 100%.

So you are comparing 5 kicks compared to Matt Bryant's clutch legacy?! Lol!

How clutch would he be if Pete doesn't call timeout and Bryant's missed field goal against Seattle counts. We lose that game.

I was at dome the whistle went well before the kick. MS always told the kickers to kick it even on a timeout.

Obviously. But the fact still stands he needed two tries to make it. He missed his first one. I said what IF he misses it? Is he still clutch in the eyes of everyone here?

The timing was off. He was just kicking to kick. He was never going to miss that kick.

That's not what I asked.

IF he misses that kick do the fans turn on him? Yes or no?

So we ended up paying him more to skip the camp!!

Not really, when adjusted for inflation it's about the same.

Yep. Every one in the dome knew TO and he went through the motion. That’s what coaches wanted him to do on TO.

Can we start a new Forum called 'Argue Like A Bunch Of Kindergarteners About Matt Bryant' so all this bullcrap can disappear from TAFT? 

 

I sign this.

There could be lot of ifs. But Matt Bryant’s legacy didn’t turn out that way as he never missed when it mattered.

This is a valid point!!! He got an extended vacation. But at least from all outward appearances he maintained by kicking/ working out. At least we hope. If he fails to do well it’s going to get real ugly... If he does well like we all hope much crow to be eaten.

Problem with that is there's 1.3 mil dead money on the books from his contract last year. Not even worth it for the Falcons to do that.

Oh I get it but I would imagine he would have had other offers from other teams even at his age but maybe not. It was like he was waiting on the Falcons or nothing else

No. They would've turned on Ryan.

Hopefully he can stay healthy, if not, id still take a good/great kicker for 13 games over a terrible kicker for 16. 

We can just simply go for two on TDs and go for it on 4th downs! B)
