THE reason you draft a LT 1st overall is for the express ability to block "mano a mano" the leagues premier pass rushers.

His performance today was laughable at best and a grim reminder of how this guy cannot block elite speed rushers.

Bottom line, the guy is overrated and fittingly his performance today was the proverbial nail in the coffin for this regime.

Laughable? The false starts definitely seemed more timing than anything . . . and he did a damn good job against the BEST pass rusher in the league. One on One and he won that battle.

Put Colombo on him one on one and see what would of happened.

Yeah Dware had his water running, Long had like 4 penalties. Long has been sub-par this year but from what I can see he's not totally healthy right?

I dont worry about Jake at all he is a beast pure and simple. Had a rough day today because of penalties but he is still the franchise LT no doubt. Show me a guy that has handled Ware this year.

Jake Long has been injured all year, but yes, they should've drafted Matt Ryan instead.

He's human. Everyone has bad days. He didn't give up any sacks to Ware I think so he held his ground. If we won this wouldn't be a problem.

Lol you think we would be better off with Matt Ryan right now with these buffoons running the show? We might have a couple extra wins but I highly doubt we would have won any playoff games.. speaking of which Matt Ryan has won 0.

How many super bowl rings does Matt Ryan have at this point? Can you remind me again...

Long did struggle...Every time they wanted to crush Moore Long got run over or around very easily. He is not a beast and cannot protect the blind-side as well as some drafted much later.

Spilled milk now but it still taste sour...

You guys shouldn't even bother with this pathetic troll. This is an attempt at getting attention and it's working. I will do the best thing I can and that's give one star for this unoriginal thread. He has no credibility and will continue to embarrass himself with these useless threads that are beyond moronic. Go Fins!!!

wares the best stand up pass rusher in football...he's a freakin phenom...jake did pretty well all things considered...you're damn right you need to try and get a jump on the snap to get into your kick slide as soon as possible when that nightmare is coming off the edge...damn right you should

those false starts are a given...

:lol: what?

Long coming in to this year was the best LT in the NFL, now a year where he's playing hurt, he sucks?

Long's bad games are great for most other LT's

Ware is the best pass rusher in the NFL.

I am completely lost on this one.

Jake Long, is and will be one of the VERY best LT's in the league. PERIOD.
He just took on the best pass rusher in the league.... one on one almost every single play. Do you even know how many tackles Demarcus Ware had? NONE. He had 1 assist and that is IT.

Meanwhile, Matt Ryan is exactly what I thought he would be. Terribly over-rated, and despite being surrounded by INCREDIBLE talent, is still right at average in about every category a QB can have...that's right, right in the 12-17 area.


Somebody stated it correctly, the thread originator is either a troll in disguise, or just doesn't get it to begin with.

Other than the play where he got caught for holding, and protecting Moore from getting snapped in two, I think Long played pretty well. Funny how people don't realize Jake Long is having a Hall of Fame career.

it happens, Jake will bounce back next season, he will have a new head coach, and qb to protect.

Really? Dude i hate to break it to you but NO ONE is blocking Ware this year. No one. Guy is averaging almost 2 sacks a game i heard them say today, and leads the league. Long did shut down Orakpo and Hali the past few weeks, both pro bowlers.

This thread has so many different levels of fail. Both sides of the argument...full of fail.

OP - Jake Long is hurt. He played against Ware. He played well.

Others - Not sure why every Jake Long thread turns into an attempt to make Matt Ryan out to be garbage when we easily win that game yesterday if we had Ryan and Baker instead of Long and Moore. Ryan isnt elite, but hes still young and hes pretty good. The no SB thing is laughable, especially from Dolphins fans given that certain all time great QBs never won one...

Long will be fine when we draft a LT and move him to RT.
