A Perfect Fit For the Falcons


Recommended Posts

I was the president of the MR2 brigade for nearly 16 years.  I love the guy.  However, he has moved on and is ready to make the next step in his life.  He will always be the greatest Falcon, and will forever not get the respect he deserved.  I wish him well, and when he signs his one day contract and retires as a Falcon, I hope his section of the ring of honor shines the brightest.

That is not the only reason why he's gone. Arthur Smith needs a mobile QB to run the offense he's trying to run and Watson would have fit that mold. Since we missed out on that (or should I say dodged that bullet), we got the closest thing in Mr. Butt Throw and drafted a good decision maker and mobile QB in the draft.

He could teach Ridder how to read Defenses, and how to be an NFL QB. Ridder could get plenty of playing time while learning. He is still a rookie, and just not ready yet to lead this team.

We have a rookie who is honesty a pretty good player. 
Indy’s o line was no worse than ours. And their receivers are better than ours. Ryan threw 14 TD and 13 interceptions. That’s not a good look for a team that absolutely must make the playoffs next year. 
Besides, you’re acting like Falco s cut him. Look it up. He asked to be traded. It would have been great if him to have lay his final year (on contract to ATL) to honor his commitments to the team and the fans. But he wanted to leave. He wasn’t benched by Smith. 
 

How about we honor him appropriately when he is officially retired?  Ryan was the best Falcon ever. But that faded fast over the last few seasons. 

He only asked to be traded after egregious slap in the face from AB. No matter what the Haters say, he is still capable of being a starting QB in the NFL for at least a year or so.  Bottom line is that Rookies who are , "pretty good players" are not prime candidates to lead a team in the NFL, we need a vet like Ryan or Tannehill to come in here as a stopgap , until Ridder or a draftee QB is ready to take over.

Nowhere in the article does it say he would be a fit in Atlanta, or that we should bring him back. 
 

They said a team that’s a QB away from a team ready to compete should give him a shot. 
 

That isn’t the Falcons. His time here is over. I doubt he starts again. I think he is ready to ride off into the sunset unless a contender wants him, and I don’t see that happening.

Ryan's one of my favourite players of all time. I think he's still a lot better than most here are giving him credit for. Didn't like how he left, but it was the right time for the franchise.

I still don't think it makes sense to bring him back. It's over and done with, time to move on. 

He would only be a very expensive(because I doubt he comes back making fish heads and rice) impediment of growth for the second year guy. 

Sure, the teaching would be valuable but I don’t think it makes up for what he would take away. 

That’s of course unless he comes in expecting to hold the clipboard for those Fish heads I mentioned.

Same.  Love the guy, and I always have, and I hate how many people here didn't appreciate him.

But there is no reason at all to bring him back now.  It's done.  Let him retire on a 1-day contract, sure.  But his playing days here ended last year.

SO ???

So? 

Based on some things said here it seems part of what is driving this is a desire to make good on some past wrong, and we can't operate like that. He's a poor fit for this scheme, and if he still wants to play it's probably not as a backup with a backup salary.
