It’s been an interesting offseason for the Atlanta Falcons, as they’ve made some nice moves to improve the roster.

However, the quarterback situation is still a concern, especially amongst the fanbase.

The franchise was one of the first teams to claim they were out on possibly acquiring Lamar Jackson. On Tuesday, head coach Arthur Smith reiterated the team is dedicated to Desmond Ridder, per Orlando Ledbetter.

According to Ari Meirov, the Falcons’ head coach even goes as far as to say they expect to see “significant growth out of him.”

From the sounds of it, Atlanta is sold on the idea of Desmond Ridder being the starting quarterback next season.

Despite that, Falcons fans aren’t really feeling the same way about Ridder. For that reason, they can’t help but roast their head coach over his latest claims.

Looks like Falcons fans are already thinking about the 2024 NFL Draft.

Perfect use of this meme.

Atlanta hasn’t really recovered from that Super Bowl loss and this is a big gamble for the team and Arthur Smith.

Maybe Desmond Ridder figures it out and can be a solid starter in the league. If that’s the case, then the Falcons win big. If not, well, things could be looking very different this time next year.
