isproab Posted December 9, 2022 Share Posted December 9, 2022 This is just based off of me listening to 92.9 the game this morning. A few weeks ago, their was a thought that the Falcons would not be a player in the 2023 QB market (draft). It was they "like Ridder". Now, since the switch has been made, I'm hearing the guys on the morning show say 4 games, but that is not enough time to get a good read on him. This is EXACTLY what I wanted to avoid. I do think that as a 3rd rounder, he is in an in-between space. Talented enough to be a starter, but not the big investment of a 1st rounder that tends to mean you play sooner rather than later and you have big expectations. I thought the absolute minimum he needed was 5 games when the season started. We are not far off that, but the more time, the better. After Thursday night at Carolina, Ridder should have been in there. I think this "dream" of us making the playoffs has been a waste of time and a detriment to our future. It may look good on Smith's resume, but this team has not show the ability to go on a run or turn anything around. Historically, that is not us. This season, that is not us. 2-2, 3-3, 4-4. Those were the best records we had at anytime this year. Now we are 5-8. A young QB is likely going to look lost for a time. We need to get that process started. Glad people are seeing things clearly as our future is concerned. Would have been nice if Ridder already had 3 or more games under his belt.
