Agreed, it just doesn't make sense to scrap a top 10 qb because he isn't elite.

Re: Falcons and Ryan agree to new deal

Funny to see Falcon fans arguing amongst themselves and on a Saints board nonetheless...

Re: Falcons and Ryan agree to new deal

Ryan is far from stagnant...he showed the ability to connect on the deep ball for the first time since we drafted him and he continually makes the adjustments at the line of scrimmage that are the sign of an elite QB...lets not forget that Brees had 4 years on San Diego that he didnt show enough to them to be their starter and Ryan is going into his 6'th year and has proven to the team that drafted him that he has the potential to be the kind of QB Brees already is...to act like the only reason Ryan has had the sucess he has had over the past 3 years is because of his weapons is like saying the only reason Brees has excelled is because of having a great offensive coach to call his plays.

JJ is improving.

Ryan is stagnant.
Were you watching the same games I watched? You saw no difference from 2011 to 2012?

You didn't see how much better he threw the deep ball? You didn't see how much more mobile he was? You didn't see how much farther the team got?

Poetic.
Yikes. Sounds like Saints fans- especially in the Aaron Brooks era. Just like those Saints fans of old, you're being a little too harsh. I completely understand the frustration.

A simpler way to put it may have been....

"He's not worth it, but what choice do we have?"
That's it exactly. Ryan isn't as bad as you think he is but he's not in the top tier of QB'S for sure. The Falcons don't have a better choice and if they lost Ryan it would set the organization back a few years. He is a good QB. They have a better chance with him than they do with whatever putz they can hope to get in free agency.

That said, the Falcons overpaid and everyone knows it. They were forced to pay him a higher salary because starting over with any other QB would scrap this season.
Also, Gonzalez almost certainly won't be back next year so the Falcons would lose two key players that had a big part of bringing the team a 13-3 season.

I'm enjoying their perspectives. It's part of why this board is so great.

Yeah, there's no newspaper lining the floor or bird droppings everywhere ... it helps clear their heads and form coherent thoughts ... it's why I hang around, . Best board on the 'net, bet.

For Gonzo this is his second "now or never" season.
