Would you spin the quarterback roulette wheel for the Falcons?

On one hand, Matt Ryan had a lot of turnovers last season. On the other hand, come on, don't be crazy.

Recently, NFL on ESPN posed the question of whether or not you would want to spin the quarterback roulette wheel to potentially replace your favorite team's quarterback.

If you spin the wheel, there's a chance you send up with an Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady. You could also end up with, oh, I don't know, Sam Bradford. There are definitely risks involved.

So let's explore whether or not Falcons fans should take a chance and spin the wheel on Matt Ryan.

On one hand, yes, Ryan struggled last season. He threw a lot of interceptions and turned the ball over way too much. He looked uncomfortable in Kyle Shanahan's offense, and was part of the reason the team struggled throughout the six-game skid.

On the other hand, Ryan is a very good quarterback. He generally finishes in the top ten in the league for passing yards. Ryan is easily better than two-thirds of the starting quarterbacks in the league, and if you spin the wheel, you risk replacing him with someone who isn't going to be as effective.

So what would you do? Would you take a chance and spin the wheel, or stick with Ryan?
