I have to agree with BBD. You watch Matt Ryan and the anticipation and quickness and aptness of his reads immediately stands out at you. It's the same thing that always made Peyton Manning my favorite quarterback to watch. Ryan is already playing like you hope the young quarterback on your team will play when the "light comes on" or "he puts it all together". Ryan seemed to hit that point immediately. I really like him coming into this past draft, but there's no way I could have predicted he'd be this good this quick.

Flacco is, at times, playing really well. But there are times he looks lost and his confidence crumbles a bit. At his best, he looks like a great deep passer with strong athleticism and decent decision making. At his worst, he looks a bit like a guy who's in a little over his head. Those bad times will pass, to be sure. Baltimore seems to have found their franchise passer (and if they get a good deep threat on that team, watch out.). But, in watching them, there's no doubt in my mind that Ryan is the more impressive right now.

BBD is right. He's the most impressive rookie quarterback I've ever seen.

I agree Ryan is the better QB now, but every bum on the street knew that since the draft. It is really impossible to say who will be the better QB, but I think both teams got franchise QB so that is good for them.

My vote obviously went to Matt Ryan. Im just glad we are witnessing two great rookie QB in the same year, future looks bright and the situations are great for both players.

i would agree that matt ryan is a much polished QB at this moment.

but one thing that has really impressed me about joe flacco is his poise. he doesnt get rattled. I dont know wat you mean when his confience gets shaken... the only time i saw that was his preseason debut. since then... he's been joe o so cool...
