You know as the upcoming draft nears closer, I have faced the fact of what positions are deep and what ones aren't? Tight End is definitely one of the deepest I have ever seen. Quarterbacks are not so deep. There are like two I hear about everyday I think. You know both of them I am sure: Andrew Luck and RG3. (His nickname sounds pretty cool. Like a secret agent!) With thinking about that, it brought up what our team needs the most. Every Falcons fan has opinion on where the 2nd round pick should go it seems like. While think about team needs another thought crossed my mind though...
Is Matt Ryan possibly our cancer?
Now before you go off, I love Matt Ryan and will defend him against about any nay-sayer. The only QB that I like more than him is Matthew Stafford. I am not saying those are the two best QB's in the league, but neither two are pushovers.
With that opinion out of the way, you would think that I wouldn't even consider my mind's question possible. Yet, I started mulling it over anyway. I mean I know that he set career numbers and franchise records this year, but he didn't score a single point in the playoff loss. I know that the play calling was absolutely terrible. Coaches cannot control how a play is executed though. The Iceman has also had his stretches of being inconsistent. Not Mark Sanchez inconsistent but still. It also seems that sometimes that Matt just doesn't move around enough to keep a play going, like the Eli Mannings and Vicks of the league. Matt Ryan is still a better passer than Vick, that is not the argument, I am saying he is not mobile. He is also seems to not want to stretch the play for a few more yards when he does make a half-ass scramble. Remember when he ran out with like 7 yards between him and the defender on a scramble? Ugh.
So before I start a fuss with the Falcoholics, I wanted to know, am I wrong for even considering this possible?
