It's time for the pundits to quit calling Ryan an elite QB

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Cowboys, Jets, Falcons. The three most over-rated teams in the NFL. For as average as Ryan is, Smith is just an idiot....

Meg Ryan is not an NFL quarterback. You fellas are just being plain mean. Just because she wears a Falcons' jersey and lines up in the shotgun does not mean she has talent or skill. And the fact that she throws like a girl should in no way be held against her. I'm sure you'd apologize if she were sitting on the couch next to you instead of the bug smear her body is imitating on the carpet of MetLife stadium.

I agree with both of you.
That is media talk. They really make matters worst in the end for these guys and the teams.
I am glad, have said it before, so glad, the Saints and Brees do not get that kind of media coverage and don't get too much coverage at all.
It is a curse.
The Saints get a bit of coverage after a game and then that is it. On Brees and the record that Marino left, some coverage was on that night and then the next day, practically nothing.

Go

and keep quietly going to the winner's circle.

We won't have to listen to John Gruden say "Mattttty Iiiiiiice" over and over. I think he coined the whole "Matty Ice" thing didn't he?

I expect that you are going to see the media and pundits and power ranking types, putting down the crack pipe and backing away from the Falcons and the "Matt Ryan is elite" type talk after today. ESPECIALLY now that Tebow is a story.

See the thing is, the hype associated with Atlanta and Ryan was always a product of the "Rise Up" advertising campaign and not about what happened on the field. And that advertising campaign is OVER now, the money has been spent and the media no longer has the obligation to be nice to them. "Rise Up" was a big PR campaign by Arthur Blank, to try and counter the Falcons always being second fiddle to Sean Payton and the Saints, and to sell the myth that the team were winners or an up-and-coming franchise.

The "Rise Up" slogan literally meant to "rise up" from perennial #2 second place in the division to #1, and implied that the Falcaons were going to replace the Super Bowl-winning Saints as the dominant team of the NFC South and as a major star attraction in the eyes of the media. Ad dollars were spent, PR was being spun, and so the media gave the Falcons the benefit of the doubt and hyped up Matt Ryan as "elite," according to what the Falcons told them to say. Like talking points.

Now, after what's happened to them in the playoffs 3 times in a row, reality is sinking in and media pundits are starting to realize they have been played. Even borderline that they've been made fools of. So I think you will see analysts and pundits starting to keep their distance from from Atlanta and Ryan from here on out, backpedalling or walking back on things they said earlier about him and the team. Or just flat out ignoring them.

In fact, I'm even hopeful that this is going to be a definitive moment, like the Vikings in the NFC Championship game, that it will break their spirit, and that the Falcons will just be another team receding in our rear view mirror, from this point on.
