I've never been a Matt Ryan fan...but I sure would love to have that receiving corp.
I mean really, am I going to have to hear about matty ice until he retires? or after? or drew brees? or aaron rogers? I can think of 3 gms/coaches i'd love to smack for not bringing in a QB. However, right now is not one of those times. I'm excited about the possiblities of Tannehill, and i'm not interested in what ifs of the past. If we were stuck with matt moore this season i'd be all over the what if's of the past and the what if's of the future.

Jeff Ireland was even more on board with the Jake Long over Matt Ryan thing than Bill Parcells. Parcells actually lost sleep at night because he saw both sides of the argument, and he's expressed regret about the decision since leaving the Dolphins. Ireland lost no sleep, and has no regrets.
Very surprised nobody has tried to pin the Long pick on Ireland in this thread....
1. Matt Ryan is over rated. Dude has better weapons than most QB's will ever have. He's top 15 though.
2. We have made a lot of bad draft picks but Big Jake was not one of them. I smell a 4th straight probowl coming.
3. My crystal ball shows a future of: Tannehill>Ryan
I'll go back even farther and mention that we could of had Drew Brees...TWICE.
And not having Matt Ryan does suck But I 'm over it. We hopefully we have a good one in tannehill
