Roddy had a pretty great game. The perfection expected by some at times is crazy. Matt throws for more yards than in any game in his career, Gonz is virtually unstoppable, Roddy goes over 100 yds again and JJ reels in a long bomb--one of two excellent deep passes--and we want to pick them apart? Come on....the other team gets a vote. A half assed run game wins this one for us.
Sure, the run game sucked today. Not gonna argue that. The offensive line was pretty questionable too. The defense was pretty stinking bad in the first half.
My point is that Roddy was the one running his mouth, and he was the player that Matt Ryan threw the perfect ball to. People, in the past, have given Ryan crap about how his deep ball sucks. He has been proving people wrong. On the 2nd to last play of the game, Ryan delivered the perfect ball to finish this game with a soul crushing TD that would have exploited the major weakness on the Saints, and propelled the team to 9-0. Roddy blew it.
I like Roddy as much as anyone... But if you're going to run your mouth, you better back it up with action. Sure, he had a good day, but the team lost. Ryan gave him the chance to be the hero, but Roddy blew it.
