falcon app Posted December 18, 2022 Share Posted December 18, 2022 I see a lot of very positive threads with reasons why Ridder will be great. The positivity is obviously welcome, but we have to be careful about setting ourselves up for disappointment by setting the bar too high for the rookie. Jalen Hurts, for example, played four games in 2020, going 1-3 with a 52% completion percentage, four touchdowns, and 77.9 QBR. Ridder can come in and have similar stats and we would still not need to panic, especially if the FO has a clear plan to build around him. AS's offense is obviously not based on too much passing, especially deep passes, and thus, like the Eagles, there is a universe where Ridder is not Mahomes as has been suggested, but the team is doing well enough that we think we can win it all with him. This is not to say that Ridder will definitely be a success like Hurts in the long run, but we have to give him at least until the end of next season, with hopefully a better team, before we start calling for his head.
