Sometimes you just can't make this stuff up. Here's what Mike said earlier today about Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan:
"(he) plays like he's been in this league for 10 years. I mean he looks wonderful as a player...Ryan has got a little something special. Listen they went through hell last year as a franchise and now they've come out the other side. They paid dearly but they came away with a special player. They made the right call. There were a lot of knuckleheads who didn't want them to pick this quarterback on draft day..."
Then just a few hours later, a caller informed Mike he was wrong about Bears QB Kyle Orton and that Orton was indeed a legitimate NFL quarterback. Here was Mike's response regarding Kyle Orton:
"I don't make decisions on quarterbacks immediately. You have to show me a lot more with the quarterback than just a couple of games."
Hmmmmm. Mike, exactly how many games has Matt Ryan played in the NFL? Which is it Mikey?
