Just watched the last 1:20 of the game again


Recommended Posts

You want to see WHY they call him Matty Ice ??............watch the last 1:20 of the 49er's game.

Ryan was flawless. Totally in control. Of course our O-line was also great and Roddy was.............well, All Pro. Then you have Matty Ice II.........Bryant. Bingo !! We're 3-1.

Well done, Falcon team.

EXTRA well done.

I agree, he was throwing with authority, yes he screwed up, but he snapped right back and He was awsome to watch. Also Bryant has been like Ice Number 2. :P

Roddy gave his QB a gift-wrapped opportunity to redeem himself yesterday. And Ryan, on that 1:20 drive, delivered in a big way. The 3rd and 10 to Douglas and the long pass zipped in to Roddy are indeed why we call him Matty Ice.

That being said, we can't count on that type of second chance; it's tough to recover from late 4th quarter picks when you're trailing. Clean it up, Matt, know you can!

he was certainly flawless,but truth be told wewould have lost that game if the 49ers were a good team.

Ryan really dodge a bullet this game. Our offense MUST play better if they intend to contend with the elite teams in the NFL.

I was typing this to another person this morning. No way we come away with a win against the likes of the Packers, Ravens or Saints if we give them the chances that SF had. The multitude of 3rd downs our offense has to convert, and the number of 3rd downs our opponents are converting will kill us.

Agreed- our defense does a great job of damage control and tunr-overs. The offense should be scoring far more points with the chances they have been given.

Too bad he stunk for the majority of the game! Thankfully Roddy bailed us out and Ryan got his act together.

I dunno. It's kinda like Yogi Berra's comment - "This game is 90% mental and the other half is physical" :D

I think this game was a classic example of not being mentally ready for the game. The Falcons didn't have the same fire that the Niners brought. ATL was pretty flat in that department. The climate changed when it got down to crunch time, and this team did what it needed to do to win the game. That in itself speaks volumes.

IMO, against other teams, like the ones you mentioned, the Falcons would have been more psyched and played with more emotion. That said, in order to be a consistent winner and contender, you have to bring your 'A' game every week. Against the good teams, you hold your own. Against the weaker teams, you should dominate.

The Niners are not a bad team. They definitely have some talent on their squad. But, all things being equal, the score of this game should have never been that close.

Flawless??? Didn't he basically "lose" the game with a interception only to get a do-over? Great job the second time but to say flawless is ignoring the elephant in the room.

Note : IF you watched the last 1:20 as the thread indicates, his interception occurrs BEFORE that. It's at 1:20 that Dahl recovers the fumble and Ryan starts a drive anew.............at the Atlanta 7 yard line. The rest is the Ryan magic.

And people continue to ask why Winning% As A Starter is a QB stat. That's why. Most NFL experts say that is the most important QB stat. I agree.

I think that this example proves why winning percentage is one of the worst QB stats. For all intents and purposes, Ryan failed miserably in another opportunity to put a game away, he got bailed out by his team mates. But it's not just this game... Ryan has not been living up to the Matty ice name. Let's go back and look at our other wins and losses in close games from this year.

We have played in 3 games this year that have come down to the wire. In the first game, Ryan threw a pick in the waning moments that should have cost us the game. The Steelers kicker missed a field goal and we lost in overtime with Ryan going 1 of 3 for 8 yards.

Against the Saints, from the middle of the 4th quarter till the end of the game, Matt Ryan completed just one of his final 4 pass attempts. He was also sacked. Our running game got the job done in overtime. Ryan was, more or less, a spectator.

And finally, against the 49ers, Ryan made a bad decision in the waning moments. That decision and throw should have cost us the game. If not for Roddy White and Harvey Dahl busting their butts to fix Ryan's mistake, we would have lost. Ryan did get us down the field after that, but if not for the mulligan, people probably would have blamed Ryan for the loss.

Wins and losses are a team stat. They are the second worst way to measure a QB. (Worst way being rushing yards.) QB's should be judged on their passing performance and performance in the clutch. Matt Ryan is looking very shaky so far this year. In the clutch, he has failed miserably in 2 out of 5 opportunities. (interceptions) He has been instrumental in the winning drive once, and has been a non-factor in the other opportunities. 40% of the time, he turns the ball over. 40% of the time, he doesn't do much of anything. 20% of the time, he is Matty Ice.

We need to keep in mind that he is only in his 3rd year, and has shown some strong signs of being a good QB. However, there is lots of room for improvement. I don't think that we need to get down on him, but I don't think that we should be donning the rose-colored glasses either.

The NFL is improving every single year, especially on Defense.

Look at Brady and the Manning boys in 2010. So far they look average, as one might say about Ryan.

How can this be ??

Evolution of the NFL defenses, quality of the defensive players coming into the league, great coaching, and last but not least............teams get UP for great QB's. Really fired up.

Matt Ryan is a great QB and he is only going to get Greater by the week.

The Falcons are so lucky to have him.

Ask TD and Smitty, who collectively have been around the NFL for over 30 years.
