It is not Matt Ryan alone, it is the players that they put around him. If Tannehill had Julio Jones, Harry Douglass, and others to throw the ball to we wouldn't even be discussing this.

This sounds like more of a Jeff Ireland / Bill Parcells problem. If they didn't waste picks on clowns like Pat White....
And if the falcon lose this game it's back to the Ryan was the right choice, but it's a team game and not his fault his D folded down the stretch. ? Seriously i'm tired of the ryan vs. long debate, as if there ever really was a debate. I don't blame jeff Ireland for long being our 1 one pick. I blame parcels. And that being said, its not like jake has completely bombed in the NFL, he was a good choice, just not the best choice. We had no QB and we should've picked Ryan. but with that being said, we should've drafted Brees, we should've drafted Rogers, and we should've signed brees. lotsa what ifs, lotsa shouldas, and lotsa GMS that made those choices that are no longer here. Jeff picked his QB. lets worry about Tannehill's success, not Ryan's success.
"I didn't feel like we had to score," Tannehill said. "I had the mindset we were going to score."
One team is mediocre. One team is elite. End of discussion.
We didn't pass on Akers. What's your point
