Do we draft a replacement for Ryan?

57 posts in this topic

It looks like we will have a pretty high draft pick this year. Do we draft Ryan's replacement or does Quinn get another lineman that sucks?

If we draft a QB who should we take?

 

Edit: I ask because we don't often get a high draft pick. MR is still great, but he's getting old and how often do get a chance to pick a guy in the draft that might can actually fill Matt's shoes?

yes Jalen Hurts please and develop him 

Okay.... if we got Lincoln Riley and drafted Hurts later in the draft, I'm all for that. Love Jalen.

We don't draft his replacement until 2021 at least. Ryan's contract goes through 2023, so it wouldn't even make sense. 

It's either Chase Young or Derrick Brown this year man I'm so excited. I stopped caring about this season forever ago, I'm just looking forward to the draft position. Blank better not **** this up by firing Quinn so we can have an interim coach come in and ruin our draft position with meaningless wins.

Yes, because a new QB will solve our problem of having the worst defense in the entire NFL giving up over 30 points per game.  If you think Matt Ryan is the problem, you are dumber than a bag of hammers and you should politely STFU!!

I’m on the fence about drafting a QB this year. I feel like we have more pressing needs than a QB. We need a LG, then draft all D after that. Even UDFA, nothing but defense

Sure. Let’s draft an unproven guy and put that 1st round pick to good use. 30/36, 356 yards and 4TDs is ****. Matt needs to retire now and we spend that first round pick wisely. /s

I'm not sayin MR sucks bro. He's getting old though, and he takes a beating nearly every game. He won't be great much longer. I think it wouldn't hurt to draft his replacement and let Matt groom the young man for a while.

Matt can play into his 40s. He has never relied on his athleticism. We invested in the OL and don't even have Lindstrom out there yet.

Draft Defense. Get an OC head coach and a fundamentals based Defensive DC that can do his job. We back in playoffs next year if you do that properly.

Fight me.

I would wait til next year and draft a QB 1. because i like next years crop of QB's better coming out in the 1st round and 2. It gives you 2 years left on Ryans contract and then you can move on from him if need be without hurting the cap.  2 Years is almost the perfect amount of time for a Young QB to develop under a very intelligent smart QB such as Ryan and learn alot of things from him.   Plus it gives you 3 years left with the QB on his rookie contract instead of 2 if you decide to move on from Ryan helping the cap space longer to build a team around him.

ESPN article said it perfectly smh 
QB breakdown: Ryan started the game well. The Falcons obviously wanted to change things up to jump-start the offense, so they won the coin toss and elected to receive. Ryan responded by marching his team down for 10-play, 80-yard drive that ended with a 9-yard TD to Calvin Ridley. Ryan completed 30 of 36 passes for 356 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. He had two 100-yard receivers in Austin Hooper (8 for 117) and Julio Jones (8 for 108). But it didn't matter. The Falcons still are 1-5.

We need defense but if we suck again next year and are in position for Fields we must draft him I doubt we get the #1 pick i believe many teams will be tanking for Trevor but you never know the way this team is built right now

Matt easily has 3-5 years of top level play in him. We aren’t wasting a top five pick on a rook QB who isn’t going to contribute on day one. The pick will be a DT, CB or Edge, almost guaranteed.
