Gonzalez Claims Ryan Not An Elite QB

Matt Ryan

In an interview with Seth Wickersham of ESPN the Magazine, Tony Gonzalez took a bit of a shot at his QB – Matt Ryan.

“Matt’s an excellent quarterback. But he’s not elite. He’s this close,” says Gonzalez, placing his thumb near his index finger. “He’ll get there, but he has some learning to do.”

Gonzalez did tell the Falcons website that Ryan is “better than any other quarterback I’ve ever played with.”

Um then why bring up the ‘elite’ comment at all?
