I'll list his accomplishments.
3 back to back winning seasons
career high 62.7% completion rate
career high 25 TD in 1 year(this year so far)
0-1 in the Playoffs
8 fourth Quarter comebacks, 13 Game winning Drives
32-12 record as a Starter (so far)
only 34 career interceptions (so far)
thrown for 9677 Yards (so far)
thrown for 63 career TD (so Far)
 
No. That's a QB who's good, but not elite.

Elite is reserved for guys who throw 30+ TD's, complete 65-70% of their passes, and amass 4000+ yards every year.
 
If you aren't winning in the playoffs you better be abusing opposing defenses consistently..

Matty poopstain has done neither
 
so nobody thinks this guy

Falcons fan here, I'm not going give him elite status just yet but he's pretty damn close. We'll have to see what he does in the playoffs.

I do. Argued it a few times here, was found useful 0 out of 9847 times, was told I was a bandwagon fan and didn't know anything about football.

Give it up, he's a Falcon. Four Superbowl rings won't make the guy elite around here.

is elite?

nope

He is in the class with..

Matt Cassel
David Garrard
Joe Flacco
Matt Schaub
Josh Freeman
Kyle Orton
Mark Sanchez
Carson Palmer
Jay Cutler

as opposed to..

Drew Brees
Tom Brady
Peyton Manning
Ben Roethlisberger

or even..

Aaron Rodgers
Phillip Rivers
Eli Manning
Mike Vick

I think you are the first falcon fan I've heard say that this year.

I work with 1 that actually said and I quote,"Matt Ryan will go down as top 10 ALL TIME when all is said and done.

everybody laughed at him, but he was dead serious and wouldn't back down
top 10 ALL TIME is a lot to ask of anyone

Do you consider Joe Flacco elite? Because he's in the same area but sports a 3-2 career playoff record as opposed to 0-1.
 
There is no doubting that Matt Ryan is a pretty damn good QB. However, there is NO WAY you can call someone elite this early in their career. Especially considering he's 0-1 in the playoffs. I'm not one that subscribes to the idea that you need to have a SB to be elite. But you certainly need some quality wins/play in the playoffs.

He's better than all of them though. I'd put him the Rodgers, Rivers, Eli Manning group. Matt Ryan is a top 10 QB now.
