Even Bad Ryan is ELITE

Recommended Posts

8 hours ago, treboyplay said:

I laugh when I hear ppl throw out his int stats from last yr or 2016. Let’s talk about his TOTAL career. In the 10 yrs he played before this one he only had 3 yrs with less than ten picks. The other 7 he threw 11 picks or higher in every season. 

 

Then he only threw for 30+ tds three times out of those ten yrs. With weapons like Roddy, Tony, Julio, HD. So let’s talk facts. His averages show what his norm is and that’s to throw picks.  I have been a Ryan fan and I have defended him but the truth is the truth. He makes mistakes that a veteran who some on this message board call “elite” should not be making. 

 

Is that enough Fact for you? 

Fact is Matt is currently #14 all time best career INT %. He doesn’t throw many. 

You need to find another thing to nitpick because INTs aren’t going to be a winner in Ryan’s case.

He is better known for having lost SB Ll, and a 25 point lead... 

Good. Doesn't change my point whatsoever. Ryan is known. Known well enough to have been selected as the best player in football for a season.

LMAO. When Stephen A Smith is your reference it’s time to take your loss, pack up your bags, and go home. 

The point is NOBODY is talking about Ryan in the media, NONE of them.  They on to the next generation of quarterbacks because until or if Ryan wins a Superbowl they don't care for him...

You must be new here. The media hates the Falcons. Like always. Ryan is boring. Has nothing to do with his play on the field.

They gave Ryan a chance during that Superbowl run.  There were folks in the media suspect of him and said that year was a fluke.  Last season proved that Ryan is not a fluke but the national media, I agree, forgot about him after 28-3.  One thing I do agree on them with though is he is not good in redzone.

Matt Ryan is NOT a elite quarterback. Yesterday showed why the media " disrespects ryan".  Everything has to be PERFECT around him. ( he is Joe Montana with a clean pocket).  The pocket has to be clean and you better not put a finger on him.  He can't throw on the run with accuracy ( thats where those overthrown balls come from).   Wentz was out there LITERALLY throwing balls with defenders draped on him and getting them to his receivers. Wentz can throw on the run.  You have to be objective about this.  

 

Ryan does not make this throw:

You're not being objective. This is just a silly hot take based on a one game sample size.

So what? Tom Brady couldn't make that throw regardless of how old he is. Neither could Drew Brees. Doesn't stop them from being great. If pure athleticism was a major predictor of success at the QB position, most of the league's elite throughout history would be busts.

Naah, because you're not considering how many throws he made. For int percentage, as in ints per attempts, Ryan is one of the best ever.

And, Peyton had a 6 int game in his 10th year, Brees a 5 int game in his 11th year, Brady a 4 int game in his 12th year. This idea that elite players never have bad games is just silly.

Yeah, one game, the one on Sunday night.

And even that one isn't a good sample because we won and Ryan threw the game-winning TD to Julio on 4th and 3. Everything certainly wasn't perfect around him. Jim Schwartz was sending blitzes all game. Ryan threw 3 picks. Eagles pulled ahead late. Ryan responded with the brilliant audible to release Julio on a screen with an all out blitz coming. That's what great QBs do.

The way we won points to the flaws of this team, which means we won't be winning for long.  Enjoy this win is a win is a win when we end up 7-9 again because other teams won't be playing with their starters on the bench.

Ok.  Enjoy your negative, miserable outlook on life.

I'll admit that I read the first page and didn't look at the rest. I assume it's more of the same, arguing the same points as on the first page. Some say Ryan is elite, others say he isn't. I'll ask this, was Brett Favre elite? I think he was and how many interceptions did HE throw? ;)

Yes elite QB’s have bad games too. But Matt is not in their class. I have been a fan of his but the truth is the truth. Matt has these types of games WAYYYYY too often for my taste. I pray I’m wrong but I don’t have strong faith that he can lead that team to a ring. 

You must not have watched him ball in a Superbowl that the Falcons should have won if not for incredible bad luck and coaching decisions. He can definitely win it.

Brady lost a SB also. Does that mean he sucks? Heck he's lost 2 so is he twice as bad as Ryan?

Bad example.  He may have lost a SB, but also look at how many he's one. He's set the standard.  Unlike Ryan he probably has a 3:1 or 2:1.  That's just a rough estimate or guess.  Won:lost ratio when it comes to Super Bowls.

Not the point I was making. Answering another poster.

Ryan had an awful game and I’m one of the biggest Ryan homers. 

But all elite QBs have bad games. Brees once threw 5 INTs against us in a single game. Manning once threw 3 INTs.

But elite QBs make the throws that matter. Even when our D gives it up  after, time and again Ryan makes the clutch throw very very few QBs make. 

Easy bubble toss? Sure. But he still had to make it. 

Thats my quarterback.

Ryan is pure class as well. Appreciate him fans.

I’m kind of glad we’ve never drafted a legit backup, since so many Atlanta fans would just be calling for the backup to start after any and every bad game from Matt, even if outside of those games he played at MVP levels. I still recall games with fans behind me screaming for them to bench Matt in favor of Schaub. I don’t know if this is a product of years and years of inconsistent play from the team historically or the fact that Atlanta is a transient city, but I doubt any other QB at Matt’s level gets near the disrespect from the home fan base as does Matt.

Legit MVP caliber QBs don’t grow on trees and are not that common around the league. I for one am thankful that we have one in Atlanta.
