Matty Ice has advanced his game by miles this season. He is way better than Romo ever was. Romo? Really? Dude always looks like he just woke up. Matty made throws this season that were surgical including today. He has a very average O line and a very below average rushing attack. Throw in a mediocre defense and all you have is a great passing game. Dont forget Roddy White has had his best seasons since Matt Ryan came to town. This dude will win several rings before its over with. Please name me these 10 qb that are better than him

All I know is he's right there with Bartkowski as the best QBs in Falcon's history. Falcon's need a few more pieces... QB is not one of them.
Im not saying he isn't a good QB. he is. But he's not reached the elite status yet. Just to have fun with this. I took the last 2 seasons avg for Ryan and Romo and compared them.
Player X Yds- 4534
td - 30
player y yds- 4448
Now by looking at these stats. One is Ryan's last two season avg and one is Romo's. Can you tell the difference now?
Yes. Ryan, who you say is a choker, had seven game winning drives and four fourth quarter comebacks. He led the Falcons To 13 wins to Romos 8. He is clutch. He may not be of Manning/Brady status yet but he's definitely not 10th.
My point is for ANYONE to say that Ryan was the reason for the loss, is blindly ignoring the defensive struggles and the inability to establish ANY rushing game! SF new our only attack was passing and still couldn't stop it. If we had a Gore on our side, it's not even close.
Yes. One led his team to the playoffs the last two years and the other one didn't.
"HOW BOUT THEM DAWGS"
Put Ryan on the Boys and they don't make the playoffs. but if you put Romo on the Falcons we would still be a playoff team. He isn't the face of this franchise. Ryan is solid. but leading come back drives against the panthers is not impressive, Coming back to beat a team you was up 20 on doesn't impress me. next year the Panthers and Bucs will be primed to make a run. And the saints will be back.

When did i say he choked?
The Falcons would not be as good with Romo as QB IMO. Ryan has come through in the clutch time after time. He's a warrior also. He's taken a pounding and stays in and makes plays.
I think what will see in ryan is his WRs making plays. Not him beating teams. I may be wrong. But he's not elite. Teams don't game plan around him to beat the falcons. He's solid. but if he didn't have the weapons around him. He wouldn't get as much hype. He doesn't buy extra time in the pocket, Not a great athlete, doesn't have deadly accuracy, or a cannon for an arm. He does nothing great. He throws the ball in tight spaces and hopes he's bigger WRs can make a play. Which they do a lot. He is a solid QB. Never said the falcons need to replace him, or we can't a SB with him. Because i think there is enough talent around him that will get us there. If we can crank the running game up and get a little bit better on defense then we will have a shot.
