    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

    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.

    those false starts are a given...

    Bottom line, the guy is overrated and fittingly his performance today was the proverbial nail in the coffin for this regime.
    So Matt Ryan never has a bad game? I guess Matt Ryan has three Super Bowl rings and won playoff games every season. Right?
