Its not Mike Murlarkey! Why? Because all he can do is call plays. He doesnt throw the ball nor run it. Maybe he calls conservative, but its not his fault if he calls for Julio on a 9 route, Roddy on a dig, Tony on a hitch and Harry on a drag and Matt Ryan is Just Indecisive.
Its Not the O-Line either. Its not the Best O-Line in the league but nor is it the worst. Look at the Eagles, Bears, and Packers. You Got Vick Who is constantly Running for his life, the only reason he hasnt been sacked more than Ryan is because of his ability to extend plays. Jay Cutler is the most sacked QB in the League! But its not Jay Cutlers Fault as you seen make plays Monday Night against the Lions. And Look At A-Rod himself, Sunday night he lost both starting Right Tackles. He was Sacked 4 times. But He Made Plays. Now Im Willing to bet my left testicle that all 3 of those QBs would love to play behind the Falcons O-Line.
The Problem is Matt Ryan. And I will say it over and over again until someone recognizes it. I see Plenty of QBs make way to many plays while under pressure for Matt Ryan not to make any!. He gets happy feet. His release is not as quick and accurate enough to get the ball to these arguably Top 5 tier weapons in the league. I refuse to believe that Roddy isnt getting separation, i refuse to believe that a 6 foot 4 220 pound man who ran a 4.39 at the combine on a hurt foot is not getting separation. Not Likely at all.
The Answer is clear in front of us. Matt Ryan is not a Playoff caliber QB, he is not a Big Time QB. Maybe Top 15. But he is a game Manager. Thats all he ever was. Hand The Ball off to Michael Turner and Hit Roddy White on some Timing routes. He is holding a super bowl ready team and city way back!
