Cool Under Pressure: Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons

Best QB vs. five or more pass rushers

The Atlanta Falcons had one of the NFL’s most balanced and potent offenses, and Matt Ryan was the catalyst that made the engine purr. Ryan lived up to his nickname “Matty Ice” by being cool under pressure.

When opponents tried to bring defensive heat, it was Ryan who melted the pressure and found the open pieces in his high-octane offense. This season, Ryan was the only quarterback to throw for more than 75 first downs while being sacked fewer than eight times when facing five or more pass rushers.

Other quarterbacks have thrown for more touchdowns and some have thrown for fewer interceptions, but it’s the overall body of work that is impressive about Ryan and it’s the fact that he did so well in so many areas that make him the coolest quarterback under pressure in 2010.

"Ryan was the only quarterback to throw for more than 75 first downs while being sacked fewer than eight times when facing five or more pass rushers."

Nice stat and good read, but seriously, who on earth has the time to think of and then calculate such remarkably obscure statistics? wacko.gif

The article is basically showing his stats when being blitzed while defining their definition of a blitz

NFL’s best QB against the blitz package

The Eagles better be careful blitzing Packers QB Aaron Rodgers. On 166 drop backs, Rodgers completed 66 percent of his throws against a blitz , throwing for 11 touchdowns and only five interceptions. He was sacked eight times. His quarterback rating of 104.5 vs. the blitz led the NFL. Conversely, Vick was a 55-percent passer against the blitz with a 90.5 rating. — Fox Sports

But no mention of where they got the numbers.. argh. :lol:
