Ryan, as it sits now 12/28/12 is the better choice, only because he has the supporting cast around him to succeed along with the fortune of not having any injuries to hamper his performance... Flip the switch, if Ryan was the one with the nagging injurries and Long is 100% injury free playing at his normal top 1-3 Left Tackle in the league, are we still having this discussion? one more thing, Ryan 100% has yet to do squate in the playoffs...
    U miss the whole point of my post and I forgive u because many fans here have to try to find a fault in Ryan. If we had drafted Ryan and 5 years later we were wondering the same thing then I would have the same comment. winning a playoff game or not they have the best record in the NFL after building a team around him and his talents, while we have jettisoned our coach and now seem to be having to let Jake Long go.

    I will say again if u draft any player number one overall and when it comes next contract time in 5 years and there is not a definately better resign attached to him then u have failed with that pick. We are talking the number one pick in the draft, thats where u take a guy thats a foundation for your franchise. Jake Long for whatever reason is not that guy

    Lets not act like this is the first time Long has been injured or his play hasnt declined

    Thanks or the forgiveness... you're kinda like Jesus Christ. the best regular season record is as valuable as a screen door on a submarine... all you need to do these days is get into the playoffs to have a chance... I'm sure Aaron Rodgers and Eli Manning will back me up on this.

    Bottom line is I agree with this to an extent... However there is a technicality attached to it, if it not for his injury history, he is absolutly worth the money... Calling Long a failure is a strecth when he has 4 pro-bowls to his name, I'll call it, victim of circumstance or bad timing... and truthfully I wasn't trying to turn this into a Ryan vs Long debate even though it seems to have gone that way.

    Who said it wasn't? Waht's your point? He was under contract and still performing at a pro bowl level even when injuried prior to this year.
