Flacco, Ryan seek fans' respect


http://msn.foxsports...-careers-011613


This is a very good article.... I know in the past falcons and Ravens fans has went at eash other throats to justify why our QB is better... One side feel the other side gets more props then the other side... Both are in their 5th year....Im past the Flacco vs Ryan thing... We should be comparing these guys to the Brady's Rodgers, Brees, and Mannings.... I feel like neither of these guys get enough respect.... If both can take care of their business tomorrow.... The league will have to take notice.

This was a great article. Really puts things into perspective. I guess I shouldn't be so hard on Matt Ryan when he's being snubbed just as much as Joe.

As the article said, I think anything less than a Super Bowl win and they'll never be recognized for the great talents they are.

That's just sad.

If we were to lose in Foxborough this weekend and the Falcons make a trip to the Super Bowl, I may root for Matty Ice.

How awesome would that be for both these underrated QB's to make the superbowl. we win of course . I would be very curious to see what the sports commentators would say then . The article is right I have followed the coverage all week its all about the 49ers and the patriots even when they interview our players its about the patriots . niether of these guys get credit .

Ive noticed the same thing went some of our players interviews ive seen today that took place this week.... It was more about the 49ers then asking about our own team.

a close friend is a sports reporter and he said . Flacco could play the patriots shut them out hang 40 points on them and it will be more about how Brady lost then about Flacco winning he told me that monday i said nope when Flacco wins this game they will respect him and have to recognize him but now, after this week i think hes right . and thats not ok to me

I'd prefer BAL-ATL to The HarBowl, personally, just so that this debate gets solved once and for all!

There's been a lot of talk about Flacco and Ryan. They're pretty similar in that they both get the job done and don't get enough credit. And obviously the Matt Ryan playoff thing was overblown. There's always something that people say a QB can't do, until he does it. So what's the point? Flacco used to get criticism about sucking in the postseason. 3 years later and people are calling the postseason his strong suit. Matt Ryan is going to be the same.

For the record, since the article talks about no one believing in the Falcons before September, I did have the Falcons going 13-3. I paid attention. I knew where their offense would be and I knew they would win a playoff game.

They both are starting to get credit though. The old class of elites/near elites (Roethlisberger, Eli Manning, Rivers, Cutler, Romo) are likely on the downswing and P. Manning, and Brady won't be around for too much longer. Flacco and Ryan will be at the top one day.

Nice to see Ravens fans giving Ryan respect. Too bad the same can't be said about Falcons fans:

http://boards.atlant...k-fans-respect/

I've said from the jump, the ONLY reason I root against Ryan is because Falcons fans have this ridiculous bitterness towards Flacco.

be the bigger person.... Most Falcons fans are not like that... Some are saying what im saying.... Some dont like flacco... I mean in the other team game day thread most root for Ryan to fail during game days on here.... Its both sides.... Just move past it.... Like said both perform in their schemes and deserve their props.


Once both guys earn they respect.. Both sides will get past it.

Just honestly speaking.. I think Flacco will get his full props after this year (Ray retire) .... If yall win it all most will give him his props but allot will say yall won because Ray lifted yall with his return..... Just like i feel about Ryan... Screw who ever dont like your QB.... But im not gonna hate flacco just because a raven fan hates Ryan... I might think Ryan is better but i cant take away from what Flacco has done... I will give his props.

To all falcon fans who believe Matt Ryan would flourish on the ravens and would have won the games we lost in the playoffs, I have two words for you, cam Cameron.

I doubt Matt could handle the air Coryell( he does not have the arm).

Now flacco would put up huge numbers in a falcon offense centered around the quarterback with TWO elite wrs and HOF tight end.

I like Matt Ryan. He is a top 10 qb and on the same pedestal as flacco as of now. But flacco is just more physically gifted( throw to jacoby that Matt would have lifted in the air to get picked)

Hate to say this, but you are one of very few Falcons fans that dont mock Flacco. There is a lot of people on those boards whose resentment to Flacco is just straight up unreasonable.

But for the record, I'm pulling for a Bird Bowl. I want to see the two best up and coming QBs in the league go head to head in February.

I want that two but there's part of me wants to see flacco rip the san Fran d a new one and then give [you can't say that in these forums].

Sounds like they are still bitter about the fact, Falcons didn't get the best QB in the draft class.


Or the best RB.

Exactly right. Most ATL fans that I have seen act like that when it comes to our team.

At least the Falcon fans that come to our forums are decent guys; I like having them here. (They probably come here because they cant stand ATL fans either haha)

I'm with you ratedr. They have more Flacco threads than we do. It's ridiculous. And Matt Ryan has never been under the criticism that Joe has so I don't want to hear any of that. I have nothing against Matt Ryan just his fans.

It's pretty sad that Falcons fans would throw the rest of their team under the bus like that just to say they got the better quarterback. The QB takes precedence over the other 52 combined.
