And, for that reason, we're always skeptical when a team or a player announces an intention to do things a certain way.Case in point -- in his stint at the guest author of Peter King's Monday Morning Quarterback, Falcons Sunday afternoon quarterback Matt Ryan makes it clear to the football world that, in 2010, he'll be looking first to the receivers running underneath routes, until opposing defenses take them away.Ryan came to this conclusion after studying men like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in the offseason. "Both of those guys consistently take the underneath routes when they are given to them and don't ever think about going to another route until the defense takes the underneath route away," Ryan writes. Though Ryan never specifically says that he'll be doing the same thing, the message is clear: He'll be doing the same thing.Unless, that is, he's trying to make opposing defenses think that he'll be doing the same thing.
