Ryan hasn't been hurt since 2009. What's the point of this thread?
The point, young Emmitt, is that it is better to be prepared when sh*t hits the fan then try and scramble.
Nobody 'wants' Matt Ryan to 'get hurt'. But, if it does happen, you better have a plan to deal with it.
As I see it, the plan right now is to hand off the duties to Like McCown. Okay, I hope that works out. But, if it does not: I Gay Ron Tee with a Capital 'T' there will be a QB controversy right here in our back yard.
Look at CB depth. Grimes goes out, Asante steps up. Asante goes out, McClain steps up.
Peria goes out, Corey Peters steps up. Peters goes out, up comes Walker.
See what I am getting at? But the 2 places where we could really get f*cked is IF
Matt Ryan goes out, or Julio does.
If Ryan goes out, I have Dominique Davis ready to go. I know this will inspire the 'rearranging the Titanic deckchairs' chorus. But, it's prolly insance, you could rearrange those deckchairs so that they aren't in the waywhen you plummet to your icy death..
There is plenty of film of Luke Mccown. Everyone in the league knows exactly what he 'can' and 'cannot' do. http://www.jagsreport.com/2011/09/jagua ... cord-book/
Both Luke AND John Mccown are throwaways. Im sorry, its just a fact. The thought of Like McCown behind center scare the livin bejjebus out of me. Honestly. Not to say Redman would have been any great improvement, but were stuck with what we have...
There is no or not very much film on DD. He is clearly more mobile and has the better arm. He is an untested rookie, I know and he may not be heady enough to get up to speed, but I think
he is the better option
. Thus, I would rearrange the depth chart and move DD to 2nd backup and get him some reps.
Kinda like, with Julio injured, Harry Douglas limpin around last week, I would have signed Plaxico TODAY
for the vet minimum. Drew Davis is fine, but I would have Plaxico on the team and I would cut Antione Smith, or Mike Cox and use Snelling if we need a FB until Hawley comes off suspension.
But these are things you do if your looking down the road.
Hopefully everyone stays healthy and Im just being paranoid...wouldn't be the first time.
