Nino11 Posted December 8, 2022 Share Posted December 8, 2022 I wasn’t a fan of the whole “let him sit and learn” narrative but I guess I was spoiled by Matt Ryan coming in and being the guy from day one. And maybe I’m biased, but I would think if Ridder was a “guy” he coulda beat out Mariota by now. I thought he looked great in the preseason for a rookie and would win the job but here we are just finishing Week 12 and he’s still holding clip board. I understand he went in the third for a reason but can you guys think of any QB that was a “guy”, no matter where they were selected, that wouldn’t be able to beat out Mariota even as a rookie? I can’t…. Mariota isn’t the worst QB to start for the Falcons. His character makes it easy to root for him but his plays doesn’t. But in all honesty it’s actually worst then that as he shows flashes of why he was drafted number 2. He subsequently follows that up with just plain on bad. I think the bad outweighs the good at this point though. It’s time to see what Ridder has. I think Smith’s staff has brought in some good talent and seem to have an eye for it so it makes me worried they havnt put him In yet. Yes, another Ridder thread. Sorry for the inconvenience to the stickler so YungFalco, Killing Floor, 4dabirds and 4 others 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
