8 Quarterbacks who could easily replace Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan

Due to the Atlanta Falcons’ inability to build a defense or consistently protect Matt Ryan how great the quarterback has been, is often overlooked. The 2021 season encapsulates that sentiment perfectly when you look at what the Atlanta Falcons asked Ryan to do. Giving Ryan an offensive line unable to slow the worst defensive lines […] 8 Quarterbacks who could easily replace Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - Atlanta Falcons News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Falcons could get 1st rounder in Calvin Ridley trade, league exec says

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler asked around the league about Atlanta’s wide receiver. The Atlanta Falcons enter the offseason with a slew of questions about its top players. Something has to happen with players like Matt Ryan, Deion Jones, and Grady Jarrett, whether trade, cut, restructure, or extension. The Falcons look far from being competitive, meaning no expensive veteran is guaranteed to return in 2022. The future may be cloudiest for wide receiver Calvin Ridley who missed the majority of the 2021 season after going on the non-football...

Falcons roster review: QB edition

Falcons roster review: QB edition

Photo by Lance King/ It’s probably going to be Matt Ryan’s show again in 2022, but uncertainty stalks the position even so. In the end, for all the draft intrigue and early spring trade rumors, the Falcons quarterback situation was the same in 2021 as it has been since 2008. Matt Ryan was the starter and the team doesn’t have a long-term, obvious backup, and certainly not a successor. The season also went much the way 2019-2020 went, where Ryan was far from this passing game’s biggest and most glaring issue, but also was not able to pull off any miracles en...

Should the Atlanta Falcons target Ryan’s replacement in the draft?

Matt Ryan’s time with the Atlanta Falcons is closer to the end than the beginning, this we know as the veteran heads into his age 37-season. Sitting with the 8th overall pick in the draft Atlanta has to at least consider whether or not it is time to take a quarterback.

SB Nation’s 2022 NFL Mock Draft sends Falcons an unexpected quarterback

SB Nation’s 2022 NFL Mock Draft sends Falcons an unexpected quarterback

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Another wild mock draft early in mock draft season. The Falcons have been toying with the idea of finding Matt Ryan’s replacement for at least a few years. Those internal considerations did not lead to a whole lot. Atlanta ended up with the likes of Josh Rosen, Feleipe Franks, A.J. McCarron, and Matt Schaub in that time period. In summary, there is no heir apparent or even heir unapparent to eventually replace the almost 37-year-old passer. Whether or not the Falcons do replace Ryan, or find the first potential replacement that didn’t...

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports That’s one way to mock draft. It is mock draft season. I’m ready to read any and every single mock draft about what the Falcons could or should do in the draft. I need to cram every possible draft trade and prospect over the next 100 or so days until I just can’t take it anymore. It is basically required for the offseason. How are we talking about the draft with so many unanswered questions about this team? Who stays? Who goes? Who do the Falcons sign? We don’t actually know if the Falcons will keep Matt Ryan, Calvin Ridley, Deion...

The Atlanta Falcons finished their first season under head coach Arthur Smith with a 7-10 record. Atlanta shockingly had an outside chance at the playoffs, which is a lot better than what many people expected out of the roster coming out of training camp.

He put one of those on tape on Atlanta’s opening drive against the Saints, snaring a 26-yard Matt Ryan pass in over-the-shoulder, one-handed fashion. The other arm? Well that was of no use...

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports The Saints won in Atlanta, which will never be fun. The Falcons first season under head coach Arthur Smith came to a close in Atlanta in ugly fashion. The team lost 30-20 to their hated rival and couldn’t firmly knock the Saints out of the playoffs (though the 49ers took care of that later). The team also couldn’t get things going enough to break other records, but they did secure the #8 pick in the upcoming draft, which should help.
