i wish my offense had two all pro WRS and a HoF TE. Matt Ryan isn't THAT great but the falcons team is nasty in terms of their depth. you can't just hang the failure of our franchise on the one pick. There's a reason they call it the ultimate team game.
Be afraid, Brady. Be very afraid!
-Dan MarinoI just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.
I definitely agree with this; Ryan has turned out far better than Long. I also was part of the group that thought Long was a good pick. Ryan was good, but definitely not a can't-miss player prospect like Luck. He was a good college QB, but how many of them have never turned out? The general thought was that you didn't want to screw up a #1 overall pick. Thankfully we didn't take Gholston or Chris Long like some people we advocated. I think it was a "good" pick. Low risk, but definitely low reward. We also cannot fully connect this pick to Ireland. We do not know if Parcell's made this pick, both of them did or Long was Ireland's pick. When judging Jeff, I can only use the time when I "know" he was in charge (since Bill left)
I wanted Ryan at the time, and yet again I was right and the Dolphins were wrong. When Long is let go, the 08 draft will be a complete failure while the Falcons have arguably the best QB they've ever had and compete for SBs every year. They never looked back; Miami still can't smell .500
Well if we are doing the play by play where is the post about Matt Ryans fumble????
