Raheem Morris's First Act As Falcons Head Coach Was To Rightfully Bury Desmond Ridder

Yes! Drag him!

It's such a breath of fresh air to have a head coach willing to admit that Desmond Ridder sucks. That should be the bare minimum as it's self-evident, but it's more than the last guy would do, so it's a good starting point. I think the biggest indictment on Arthur Smith is that his successor has done more than he had just by admitting the quarterback with 12 TD and 12 INT last season was, in fact, trash.

Obviously Morris and Terry Fontenot now have to go find a quarterback who doesn't suck — a decidedly more difficult task than trashing Ridder — but I oddly have more faith in that happening after hearing this comment. "This guy knows quarterback play," I tell myself after an NFL head coach acknowledges the worst QB in the League wasn't getting it done.

I would love to have been able to see Ridder's reaction when he saw this quote. I don't know what kinds of conversations he's had with the new boss, but it doesn't seem like Morris is planning on having too many more of them, thankfully.


This is a great day. There's a new sheriff in town and he hates Desmond Ridder. We rejoice.
