Matt Ryan and his sophmore season?

OK, I see your point if that's what you were saying re: VY/Ryan. I still think it was MORE overdone with VY based on actual performance.

Dude, I agree. I HATE that there's no rookie salary scale based on what draft position the guy was chosen. No one should get that type of money before they are proven...I think it is bad for the NFL.

Yes, not comparing them in any way on the field, just that I think the media jumped on his jock too quick, just like VY.

Terrible for the players, the fans, and the NFL. He is the forth highest paid player in the league......thats stupid. There is a better way.

Maybe take the 16th highest paid player at that position, and you can make no more than them......or something like that.

I think they need to figure out a formula kind of like the FT formula and use that. But I won't get too into that topic on this thread because I am hijacking it. :)

Matt Ryan will continue to be a very good quarterback. I hate the Falcons but they are set at QB for years to come.

I am just not sold on Flacco. His typical line was 9 for 23 with 140 yds. The Ravens won because of their phenomenal defense. If Flacco had gone to a mediocre team without the Ravens Defense, he would not even be in the conversation.

by the end of the year flacco and ryan's per game stats were very comparable.

This is pretty much Ryan's peak. Everything that rookie qbs struggle with he didn't, so what does he have to improve on? Flacco on the other hand has far better physical tools, more room to improve, and did that all without the good offensive talent around him.

Honestly, I will hold off on them both. I like to see a second year before i get excited.

I'm with you Fuzz....I actually like to see three steady years total with improvement every year before I call a QB great.

Yup.

There are a few out there that the pundits slobber over right out of the gate that really get me going.

Cutler, Young, Ryan, Rodgers, the jury is still out on these guys to me.

The reason they usually do that is OMGZGHEHASABIGBIGARM!!!! As is the case with Cutler who is one of the biggest douchewaffles I have ever seen as a QB. He's just a complete jackass. He threw his defense under the bus when they lost to SD in the last game, he said something the other day on LiveWire that made me want to smack him...he's just utterly cocky for no reason. He will learn quickly that doesn't play with Mickey D.
