Falcons coordinator calls Matt Ryan a Top 10 quarterback
Posted by Michael David Smith on July 31, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

APFalcons quarterback Matt Ryan had career highs in passer rating, yards and touchdowns last season, but when he had a disappointing performance in Atlanta’s postseason loss to the Giants, there was talk that Ryan wasn’t delivering the way the Falcons needed from their franchise quarterback.

But Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter doesn’t see it that way. According to Koetter, Ryan is one of the 10 best quarterbacks in the league, and Koetter sounds confident that Ryan is going to lead an explosive Atlanta offense this season.

“How he’s won as a starter in the league, we think he’s a top 10 quarterback,” Koetter told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “His play backs that up. We have an excellent group of players on the offense. Players, offensive staff and coach [Mike] Smith are fun guys to work with. We have a lot of talent and a lot of guys that can make explosive plays.”

Many others don’t see it that way: When NFL Network unveiled the list of the Top 100 players in the league as voted on by their peers, 13 quarterbacks made the cut, but Ryan wasn’t one of them. And ESPN’s Ron Jaworski, who recently ranked all the league’s quarterbacks, put Ryan at No. 11.



Top 10..please

In all fairness, he did not specify which league. I'm sure Matt Ryan is a top 10 quarterback in many metro-Atlanta peewee leagues, perhaps even a number 1.

To be fair, It was an Atlanta coordinator, there's a good chance he couldn't count any higher than 10 with out being arrested for indecent exposure.

Too easy to bash the Falcons... It's just too easy.

Well Skid Britches was better than Freeman last season, so I guess I'd place him 3rd in the division after Brees and Newton - again purely based on the overall performance of the previous regular season.

No way is he a Top 10 QB in the league, but I guess he could be in some point in the future.

Freeman has the talent, just needs to lose the prepubescent girl mentality. I'd still place him over Ryan though.
