I would put Eli right after the Elite 3 right now. Which is hard for me because I don't really care for him.

I've NEVER heard Matt Ryan called elite. Are you guys hearing that from Falcons fans or something?

Who's hung up?? This is a football forum. If you don't want to hear about FOOTBALL then go somewhere else. Plus we're talkin about this less then a week since Ryan put out that pitiful performance in his 3rd playoff loss. Read all the posts before adding your stupidity to threads.

It was all over the news before the playoffs and even his own coach was calling him elite. This has been a topic for a long time now.

What I don't understand is who in their right mind has been calling Ryan elite? So what if he was 1000-1 at home or whatever his record is, thats all they can bring up about him. If he could start throwing the ball more than 5 yards down field then maybe they could start talking about him, till then just shut up

I agree, and it's about time he gets stripped of that "Matty Ice" label (which sounds more like a beer than a good QB, anyways).

I personally never though he was that great to begin with, even coming out of college. I thought he was another good QB that would never be anything special i nthe league and always leave his team wanting more.

While the Falcons sucked the year before drafting Ryan, only a fool would think that he wasn't drafted into an excellent situation.

That same off-season, the Falcons traded for Michael Turner, Roddy White was already a 1k WR, and they traded up to draft Sam Baker at LT.

Once a QB loses 4 straight playoff games, doubt begins to creep in their minds. The true great QB's don't have to wait 5-6 years just to get 1 freaking W in the playoffs.

Great QB's, Montana, Young, Brady, Brees, Warner... these guys didn't need half a decade to win a game.

Ryan's weak arm and unathleticism was exposed against the Giants.

Alex Smith just finished his 7th season. When did he win his freaking playoff game?
