Not to mention in the 4th quarter, Ryan completed 5 of 7 (71%) for 91 yards... that's a QB rate of 113.69. That's pretty dang great for a guy who "looked lost" in a game that was "too big for him"

the one where freeman basically gave hightower a hi-five on the way by? that one?

Any defense with that lead needs the accountability on their shoulders rather than the QB who still put us in position to Put the game away in the 4th. Run, run, kick FG. Game over.

This year Ryan's cap hit will only rank #16 amongst NFL QBs at just under 19,000,000.

The year we made it to the SB he made only about 15,750,000 that season.

Last season was the  biggest hit of his new deal at almost 45,000,000 cap hit.

All this according to Spotrac

Matt Ryan career earnings

Whats interesting is that for every contract of his, the years where his cap hit was the highest, we had some of the worst records.

I agree that paying QBs big money hamstrings your ability to build a complete roster with quality depth. However I think you take the ebbs and flows of the cap hits and try to strike wherever possible to go all in.

 Agree on the contracts handicapping the team. Yeah he took us to the SB but the moment was TOO big for him. Looked lost; 4th quarter.

 Yes it would seem, but there were a lot of 3 and outs and no defense late in the game can be effective against the Pats O on short rest. Some was play calling but much was mr. Ryan. Taking that sack fumble just juiced up the Pats. I could smell the end coming right then, sigh.  

O-line gets a pass on that, huh?

 That is a point, but in that situation to hold the ball like that and fumble was very crucial.

1. on that play his progression was from left to right so hightower came from the blind side

2. he was throwing the ball when he got hit, so literally all freeman had to do was be a speedbump and the ball would've been gone

you're fishing for reasons to point the finger at him
