Matt Ryan Feeling As Young As Ever In New Scheme

"The three-time Pro Bowl quarterback, who turned 30 in May, is pleased to report that his body is in fine shape after absorbing 75 sacks over the previous two seasons."

"If he were using the same scheme behind the same offensive line this season, Ryan might risk major injury after missing just two games in his first seven seasons.

That's the last thing the Falcons want to see happen to their $100 million investment."

"The number sacks Ryan took in his first four seasons - an average of 21.3 - was bad enough, but White says the 34.3 sacks he averaged the past two seasons were an embarrassment."

The thing that amazes me about him is not only has he taken a beating these last two seasons...he never gets that "deer in the headlights" ptsd look no matter what.

Most qb's can only take so much beating before losing their will. Not Ryan. He has tremendous mental toughness.

And like I said on the other thread...mental toughness is what seperates the men from the boys.

If he can avoid anymore boneheaded INTs and not be forced to try to make a 20+ point comeback at the end of games Ryan is easily the 5th best QB in the game (imo) behind Rodgers, Brady, Manning and Brees. In his first 3 games he had 2 games with perfect passer ratings, which doesn't include his stellar play for the remainder of the season. Not to mention there's only a handful of QBs in NFL history who could take the beating he has and still be able to play professional football. Dudes a monster, especially when he's on his game and pissed off.

Name one QB with that many attempts who hasn't and/or doesn't make boneheaded INTs.. It's an occupational hazard; cost of doing business.

Aaron Rodgers is the only QB I've never seen make a handful of stupid interceptions. Most of the interceptions he throws are from a failed route ran by a receiver or a dropped pass. He rarely overthrows and even more uncommonly throws inaccurately under pressure. I really dislike him because of the whole Brett Favre thing but it's hard to argue the guy is a wizard in the pocket.

Now I'm not suggesting Mattro should be Aaron Rodgers, but imagine if he did only have 9 ints a year. He'd be regarded as one of the top 3 QBs without a doubt.

You're misquoting me. I didn't say anything about Rodgers never making mistakes. Let's also not forgot boykin dropped that pass for an interception along with 7 other passes dropped by receivers that day. He had a bad game sure, but his receivers were nearly useless that game and were talking about INT, not how they play each individual game.

And all of Ryan's picks are his fault?

Which is why IMO Cam Newton will never be a HOF caliber QB. I'll give Newton the tangibles to be a great QB, he's big, fast, strong, and accurate enough but every time I see him acting like an airplane with his pads out before games (never understood this unless he played for the Jets) or sulking on the sidelines with a towel over his head it reminds me how lucky we are to have a guy like Ryan at the helm.

Again I'm getting misquoted. I never said they were, all I said was if Ryan can shore up on the ones he forces and overthrows then he'll cut his Int numbers down significantly. Nothing he can do about receiver failing to hit their route properly or a receivers timing being thrown off on timing plays. We have a receiving core as good as any in the league (at least in terms of WR# 1,2 and 4s), so you wouldn't think that would be as big of an issue. Harry is gone too so I don't see too many more of those ridiculous pick 6s on slant routes.

No, I quoted you. And that was a legit question about your post.

The number you said was 9, he had 14 INTs last year, willing to bet half of them weren't his fault, lets say a 3rd of them, that takes him down to you guessed it, 9 INTs.

Ryan is top 6 all time for INT %, if you compare him to the best of all time, Rodgers, sure, he comes off badly, but only comparing him to Rodgers and a couple of others.

Also willing to bet that many of his worst looking INTs are WR error but Ryan is never going to call out a teammate and always take the blame himself.
